Elizabeth Warren's Growing List of Anti-Endorsements


Earlier this month, the New York Times found a problem with Elizabeth Warren’s ascent to co-front-runner, alongside Joe Biden, in the Democratic Party’s presidential nominating contest. While the Massachusetts senator is bringing in gobs of cash from small-dollar donors and surging to the top of polls in early-voting states, she doesn’t have a lot of endorsements.

At least, not the type we’re used to seeing. What Warren does have is an increasingly long list of anti-endorsements that may be even more effective than the traditional kind. Yes, it’s good that Senator Ed Markey has endorsed Warren, but it’s probably better that Wall Street keeps talking about how much it fears her. What better way to play the hero than by making enemies with such an obvious villain?

The number of Warren’s anti-endorsements has increased in recent months as she has surged in the polls. Of course, she’s not the only Democrat that usurious lenders and Wall Street fat cats fear — but unlike Bernie Sanders, she appears to be the scary one who they think can win.

Here’s where Warren’s anti-endorsements are coming from:

And that's just where it gets interesting. Elizabeth is best known - and appreciated - for the company that she doesn't keep.

1. "They are unanimous in their hate for me--and I welcome their hatred"

I hope Warren is in a position, in 2024, to give a speech similar to this...

3. Of the ones mentioned in that article ...

... the anti-endorsements (duly adding that to my vocabulary ) she should treasure most is The Zuck.

OK so loan sharks and yacht manufacturers don't like her. That's good but that's standard brand Republicanism.

The Zuck is one of those alleged "progressive billionaires" (or had that reputation). No such thing and extra kudos for smoking him out.

4. I loathe the man

and would stop using FB forthwith, but for the fact that I reside abroad and FB is the easiest way for me to stay in touch with my far-flung family, who live in various US states.

Until I find another way to stay in touch with so many so easily, I am stuck with FB.
