Elizabeth Warren: Black Transgender & Non-Binary People are 'Backbone of Democracy'
2020 Democrat claims extreme fringe minorities are central to a democratic society
2020 Democratic frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has declared that extreme fringe minorities, such as black transgenders and "gender-nonconforming" people are the "backbone of our democracy."
Senator Warren made the radical claim during a Thursday statement in which she declared that "non-binary" people are central to the "structural change our country needs."
Presidential candidate Warren issued the remark after her campaign sealed the endorsement of the far-left activist group “Black Womxn For.”
The group described Warren as having “a deep understanding of how racism and gender discrimination don’t just compound income inequality but are actually central to maintaining the status quo.”
The activist group prefaced its endorsement with a frightening picture of the 2016 presidential election.
The organization says President Donald Trump's victory “laid bare what many Black women, gender non-conforming, and non-binary, and queer folk know deeply; that this nation embraces white supremacy and its evils, even at the expense of itself.”
While the activists acknowledge that a single candidate cannot solve all of their grievances, they endorse Warren “with the full weight of accountability.”
“Our endorsement is not a blanket approval of all of her acts, both past, present, and future but rather a firm and calculated understanding that should she fall short of her commitments to us and our communities she will be held to account,” the group stated.
The group continued by listing off the promises Warren made to the Black Womxn For community.
Those commitments include holding a “People’s Policy-Making Summit” that “puts Black women, working people of color, disabled people, Indigenous people, and diverse community leaders and experts in the driver’s seat of structural reforms in her administration.”
The activist group also expects Warren to take action by “rooting out the culture of white supremacy.”
Warren is also expected to begin “appointing more Black women, especially trans and immigrant women, Black men, Indigenous people, people of color and disabled people.”
Warren emphatically accepted the terms and their endorsement:
Thank you, @BlackWomxnFor! Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy and I don’t take this endorsement lightly. I'm committed to fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs. https://t.co/KqWsVoRYMb— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) November 7, 2019
