More divisive claptrap from Meagan Day of the socialist (actual real socialist) pro-Bernie Jacobin




This is the same Meagan Day who kicked off the whole Warren pregnancy smear job that the RW cesspools picked up on and ran with

here is the first RW source I could find, and ITS source is Bernie-bro-ette Meagan Day at Jacobin

This RW article came out October 2nd (and is cited on the same day by RW sites) and the Meagan Day tweet came out October 1, before the RW sites picked up on it.

Elizabeth Warren: Fired From Teaching Job For Being Pregnant, Or For Lacking Qualifications? Story Appears To Change

Editor's Note:

>Ed Morrissey of Hot Air found video of Warren's 2007 interview here. [added 10/7/19]

>Collin Anderson of the Washington Free Beacon found records of county records from the Riverdale Board of Education that directly contradict Warren's claims here. [added 10/7/19]

>Warren finally responded via CBS News on Monday, October 8, 5 days after this article was published. [added 10/8/19]

>Final note: Here's my editorial take on this issue.

Original article:

- October 02, 2019

During her presidential campaign, Elizabeth Warren often emphasizes education as well as equal opportunities for women in the workplace. Warren tells of her own experience as a young public school teacher, let go from a special needs teaching job by a male principal for being "visibly pregnant." This past May, Warren put it this way when discussing her early teaching career:
“I loved it, and I would probably still be doing it today but back in the day, before unions, the principal, by the time we got to the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant,” she said. “And the principal did what principals did in those days: they wished you luck, showed you the door, and hired someone else for the job. And there went my dream.”

In an interview twelve years ago, however, Warren told a markedly different version of the circumstances around her termination from her teaching job. (A writer for Jacobin Magazine, Meagan Day, first noted the interview on Tuesday on Twitter. Day is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and is a Bernie Sanders supporter.)

give it up, that 'blog post' is by a major RW writer and was used the SAME day by another major RW site, the odious Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire.

Bernie booster MEAGAN DAY SLUNG THE DIRT ON WARREN on October 1st, then the RW picked it up and was running with it the very next day, NOT, as you tried to falsely claim, starting on October 4th. The original source (until you show me an earlier one) WAS the Jacobin writer and also DSA member, Meagan Day.

The RW site says this tweet was the source in their article.

The 'blogger' you are trying to dismiss is The Washington Examiner's Jeryl Bier





If you had followed my link you would have seen this already.

You are wrong, I am right. Until you show me a pre October 1st source for this RW-run-with smear, it is all on the Jacobin crowd via their writer Meagan Day, who kicked it all off.

Do you honestly think that the RW doesn't follow the extreme left's attack dogs?? The extreme left are a gold mine for smears and dirt on the other, non-Sanders Democratic candidates.

1. Jacobin is pretty much the house PR organization of the Sanders campaign. They may not be...

 

....a "PAC" or "Super PAC" but they sure are expending a lot of time, effort, and money promoting the Sanders candidacy.

They post about a dozen tweets a day promoting him, and articles for him or against the others appear daily.

2. yes, they see Bernie as a stepping stone to actual expropriation of the means of production

 

The DSA (which has actual real Trotskyist and revisionist Stalinist communist elements within it as well) is the same. They love the fact that Bernie falsely self labels as a democratic socialist and not what he mostly is, a bog standard social democrat. That allows them to attempt to play semantic games and redefine 200 plus year old academic and everyday definitions, all in an attempt to legitimise their failed and dangerous ideological underpinnings.

5. It seems that nine out of ten "Praise Bernie" articles come from Jacobin

 

When I click to read the posts about Bernie, most of them seem to be editorials and opinion pieces from Jacobin.
