46. no, that was chopped pull-quote hit job on Buttigieg that was thoroughly debunked

The tweet that pull-quoted and kicked it all off ignores his comments in the interview, in which he said his appointments would "definitely be people who share my values," and how depoliticising SCOTUS is personal to him because his marriage exists by a single vote on the court.








These chop-quote hit jobs or outright misrepresentations (like the outright bullshit lie that Zuckerberg was closely advising his campaign) are almost almost always pushed HARD (and often started, even if not started in this case, put simply amplified) by the Sanderite/TYT/DSA/Jacobin/JD/David Sirota social media sphere, to the point where the shit gets into a trending position, then the mainstream media helps spreads the distortion.

This whole repetitive modus operandi and the Sanderite smear job artists (I am speaking about NON DU) like Nena Turner, TYT, Jacobin Magazine, and Sirota (who are amongst the masters of the it) are becoming so tiresome. They do it to Pete, Warren (especially her, they were the ones who kicked off the bullshit story about her teaching job and the pregnancy), Harris, Biden, Klobuchar, etc etc, basically anyone not named Sanders or Gabbard.

Here is a thread with a lot of my heavy lifting defending Warren (who is not even my first choice but who I constantly find myself defending from false attacks as well, lol) against a smear job started by a Jacobin writer, Meagan Day, which was picked up by the RW scum media who ran with it and blew it up nationally (I show ALL of that with documented links):
