Sarah Palin is taking aim at Elizabeth Warren, accusing the Democratic Massachusetts senator of lifting a line frequently used by the former governor of Alaska.
That line: “Fight like a girl.”
Though the Massachusetts Senator has become fond of the expression, Palin’s use of the phrase seemingly predates Warren’s, Breitbart reported. The former Alaska governor told the right wing website that she wasn’t happy about Warren’s appropriation.
I don’t know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up.
During a recent interview with NPR, Warren recounted a story about how activism will keep playing a major role for putting pressure on the government:
“I did the Women’s March in Massachusetts in Boston, and as we’re turning the corner to go to the Common, you see all these people who are walking. You know, women in their pink pussyhats and men pushing strollers, kids running and people on bicycles. And I saw this little girl, and she was riding on her daddy’s shoulders, and she’s holding up this sign, and the sign said, “I fight like a girl.” And I thought, “Me too, sweetie!” You know, she’s in the fight. And this is where our army’s gonna come from.”
Warren also recently posted this tweet of herself and the “Fearless Girl” statue in New York City:
