There is no limit to this woman’s pandering…
Looking to get a leg up on her fellow socialists in an effort to set herself apart from the competition, Elizabeth Warren has now thrown her support behind the idea of reparations – for gay people.
With the first big Democrat debate rapidly approaching, the Massachusetts senator has been buoyed by rapidly improving poll numbers and with a first-night dream matchup that spares her from having to duke it out with the heavyweights, is looking to capitalize and build momentum.
Warren has been a veritable fountain of crackpot ideas to promote her redistribution of wealth schemes and has now gone into full pander mode with her support of the forced confiscation of money from taxpayers to give to same-sex couples who were unable to benefit from the same tax breaks that heterosexual married couples received prior to gay marriage being legalized.
In a call to action, the woman who was only months ago left for dead after a DNA test fiasco disproved her claims of Native American heritage is demanding that Congress pass the Refund Equality Act and to do so immediately.
I’m glad to introduce the Refund Equality Act in the Senate. Our bill ensures legally-married, same-sex couples can claim the tax refunds they earned, but were denied before marriage equality was the law of the land. https://t.co/01rgfSiXUQ

In a statement issued last week, Pocahontas called for an end to the “discrimination” and the immediate passage of her legislation.
“The federal government forced legally married same-sex couples in Massachusetts to file as individuals and pay more in taxes for almost a decade”
“We need to call out that discrimination and to make it right — Congress should pass the Refund Equality Act immediately.”
Via The Daily Caller, “Elizabeth Warren Wants Reparations For Same-Sex Couples”:
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has added “gay and lesbian couples” to the growing list of groups for whom she would support reparations.
Citing a tax code that was “discriminatory” against non-heterosexual married couples, Warren tweeted Saturday, “It wasn’t until marriage equality became law that gay & lesbian couples could jointly file tax returns—so they paid more in taxes. Our government owes them more than $50M for the years our discriminatory tax code left them out. We must right these wrongs.”
The idea that the government should be given the power to steal money from people who didn’t have a thing to do with alleged “repression” to dole it out to victim groups has become a major part of the Democrat agenda although has until now been limited to the reimbursement for slavery to black people who were never slaves.
By essentially calling for reparations to gays, Warren and her fellow socialists are setting a precedent that will lead to demands from every identity group under the sun to similarly receive free money from Uncle Sam aka taxpayers.
New demands for reparations — gay reparations. From NYT: https://t.co/wtmqeav4xp

The idea has begun to gain momentum on the cultural elitist left, especially after a New York Times editorial that called for the U.S. to follow the example of European nations and cough up some coin to LGBTQ+ people because “gay reparation is a struggle worth pursuing.”
The NYT also made it clear that it was yet another weapon to use against Trump:
The Trump administration has also displayed a keen hostility toward the gay community. Early on, all references to L.G.B.T. people were erased from government websites, including the 2017 apology issued by Secretary of State John Kerry for “decades of prejudice” toward gay and lesbians at the State Department. This month, the Trump administration rejected requests to fly the rainbow flag, a symbol of gay pride, at American embassies during the month of June, a practice begun by the Obama administration as a sign of America’s support for L.G.B.T. rights.
A lot of the moralizing and posturing may simply be a way to be more “Woke” during Pride Month but to cunning socialists like Liz Warren and her ilk, the invocation of social justice in the form of reparations is really just a way to get the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent for a wider implementation of their thinly-disguised communist ideas.
Thanks to Democrats, victimhood pays.
