Liberal Senator Says Obama Is Being Sexist; You Won’t Believe Why


Some Democrats are at odds with President Obama over his trade agenda. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has vocally opposed Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Organized labor is at odds with this trade pact with Asian countries, charging that it benefits companies at the cost of the American worker. Warren is typically an ally of Obama’s, but this deal has put her and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) in a political sparring match with the President.

In an interview with Yahoo News, Obama countered Warren’s position with what most people would consider to be nothing inflammatory.

“The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else.”

Sherrod Brown took exception to Obama’s comment, not for disagreeing with her, but because the President referred to Warren by her first name rather than her title. In an interview with Politico, Brown accused Obama of sexism for this alleged misogynistic word crime.

“I think by just calling her ‘another politician. I’m not going to get into more details. I think referring to her as first name, when he might not have done that for a male senator, perhaps? I’ve said enough.”

The Democrats are so entrenched with identity politics, that a progressive Senator has now charged Obama with sexism. Often when the President is challenged by a conservative, allegations of racism are made. I know these charges have personally been lodged at me as I am almost always at odds with Obama.

Now the President is getting a dose of identity politics that is typically dished out to his opponents in the form of labeling people. Now, Brown has labeled the President as a sexist. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest has called on Brown to apologize.



As a woman, I find it incredibly demeaning to charge anyone with sexism simply for disagreeing with a female. Brown appears to think that Warren can’t defend herself from some benign criticism so he has to throw a label around. Is she so enamored with her title that she is allergic to her first name?

Brown’s wife is liberal feminist columnist Connie Schultz who is so in tune with womanhood that she felt compelled to attack Bristol Palin for her teenage pregnancy. The Brown Household has branded itself by making a living through labeling people who oppose them, so there shouldn’t be much shock value.

This squabble among the progressive wing of the Democrat Party smacks of schadenfreude.

Does calling Obama a sexist make Brown a racist if leftist identity tactics are the political weapon of choice? Please comment below.
