Undercover Video: Warren Staffer Calls LGBTQ Lobby “Liability”; Says Pronoun Focus Loses Elections
Written by Selwyn Duke
Senator Elizabeth Warren has tried hard to pander to the sexual devolutionaries, even vowing to have a “transgender” child vet her education secretary. But caught on undercover video, one of her campaign staffers scoffed at this focus, saying it’s why Democrats lose elections.
The comments, by Warren Iowa field organizer Angel Alicea, are found in Project Veritas’ latest 2020 campaign exposé. Speaking to an undercover reporter, Alicea expressed “frustration over the Warren campaign’s intense focus on social justice, particularly, stressing the importance of using pronouns to address others, rather than talk more about how the Massachusetts Democrat will create jobs with wages that improve one’s standard of living,” as Breitbart summarizes it.
“At the end of the day, we’ve become the party that has prioritized” so-called “gender” pronouns over “putting food on the table for working families, and it’s like, that’s why we lose,” Alicea is heard grousing, in “#Expose 2020 PART 5.”
As Project Veritas (PV) reports on the relevant exchange between the staffer and its reporter:
ANGEL ALICEA: “At the end of the day if we’re gonna prioritize pronouns over making sure people have a decent standard of living, that’s wrong.”
JOURNALIST: “Yeah, you’re right.”
ANGEL ALICEA: “And when you come from where I come from, no one gives a f**k about a G** d**n pronoun. People want to know how to create a job.”
NGEL ALICEA: “The thing is — and like I’m here for the pronoun things — but I just feel like I shouldn’t have to say he/him/his, like shouldn’t it just be implied?”
ANGEL ALICEA: “If I tell you otherwise.”
JOURNALIST: “Yeah if I tell you otherwise then yeah, but I mean…”
ANGEL ALICEA: “Like I’ve been called out for saying something like that, but this is why we lose elections because we’re zeroing on sh*t like that”
PV’s first four election-2020 exposés focused on Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) campaign staffers who talked about killing some political opponents and putting others in gulags. The latest is the first revealing the Warren campaign’s true nature — but it probably won’t be the last. So anyone asserting that Alicea is an isolated case should remember that PV generally will expose a given campaign in parts, with the first released video almost being a teaser.
Alicea’s situation is a microcosm of the divisions currently roiling the Democrat Party, as it learns that you can’t please all the identity groups all of the time. The staffer is clearly a liberal and expresses solidarity with the sexual devolutionaries, but isn’t entirely on board with the latest politically correct iteration called “wokeness.”
For example, Alicea expressed discontent with a fellow staff member he identified as “Paige” and who singled him out for being “straight.” Interestingly, though, he instinctively played the identity politics card himself, complaining that though he was “brown,” he was being lectured to by “white liberals.”
In reality, while Alicea is Hispanic, that is an ethnic designation; his race his Caucasian.
What also reflects these divisions are Warren’s two faces. As recently as 2012, the Democrat presidential contender from liberal Massachusetts rightly opposed using taxpayer money to fund so-called sex change operations for prisoners. As of late, however, she has become a “woke” joke. She not only proposed that as president she’d have a nine-year-old “transgender” child vet her education secretary pick, but pledged to annually read the names of murdered transgender “people of color” in the Rose Garden, even though such individuals are statistically more likely to kill than be killed and are less likely to be murdered than are average people. Moreover, in November she called sexual identity groups the “backbone of our democracy.”
Not sex-related but just as insane, Warren also has vowed to ban fracking via executive order, which would destroy our economy’s most productive sector (energy production); and to create a special “task force” to investigate President Trump’s officials, a proposal smacking of Soviet-style persecution of political opponents.
As for the more “moderate” Alicea, he’s also seen in the PV video characterizing the “LGBT” Stonewall Caucus in Iowa as “20 or 30 people” and as “a liability, not an asset in the long-term.” He complained that the identity politics practice of dividing people into groups and stigmatizing the “wrong” ones “is what the f**king Trump people utilize against us.”
Alicea, however, speaks for millions of less-radical Democrats, among them comedian-cum-commentator Bill Maher, who labeled Warren’s “trans” child/education secretary proposal “crazy stuff” on his HBO show Friday.
But what perhaps says it all about today’s Democrat Party is that while Sanders’ violent, murderous staffers have not been fired, Alicea likely will be owing to today’s “cancel culture.” It’s also why many believe that the Democrats are canceling their 2020 chances.
After all, today’s leftists don’t understand the differences between boys and girls and can’t even properly run a caucus in Iowa, but then claim to be able to run the country.
