The far left base of the Democratic Party is no longer in love with Elizabeth Warren and it’s easy to understand why. She built a career railing against big banks and Wall Street but now she has endorsed Hillary Clinton – the candidate of big banks and Wall Street.
In short, they see her as a sellout. Even in true-blue Massachusetts, where some telling graffiti was recently spotted. See the image above.
Mass Live reports:
Northampton graffiti calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren ‘sellout’ after Hillary Clinton endorsement
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton has sparked more backlash in Northampton — this time in the form of roadside graffiti.
On Sunday, a small crowd of Bernie Sanders supporters dressed in black and demonstrated silently as Warren delivered a speech at the World War II club, in outrage over Warren’s support for Clinton.
And now, graffiti reading “#JudasWarren Sellout” in large red letters marks a concrete structure on Route 5 just before the entrance to I-91.
Warren, long hailed by the Democratic party’s left wing as one of the caucus’ strongest progressive voices, endorsed Clinton following her victory in the California primary — a result that granted Clinton a majority of the pledged delegates in the race and established her as the party’s presumptive nominee.
But while the Massachusetts Senator has proven willing to jump into the campaign fray, launching public broadsides on Twitter against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, she had largely stayed quiet on the Democratic race prior to her endorsement of Clinton.
Jamie Guerin, a Sanders supporter and organizer of Sunday’s demonstration, said that while she supported Warren’s positions she felt betrayed by her endorsement of Clinton.
“A lot of us are very disappointed,” Guerin said on Sunday. “We were kind of shocked that she didn’t step up and endorse Bernie Sanders sooner before the Massachusetts primary.”
The Democratic Party is far more divided than anyone is admitting.
Elizabeth Warren is campaigning with Hillary Clinton but it won’t make much difference because she proved herself a fraud by backing Hillary Clinton.
