The radical left frequently makes statements and takes action giving the impression that they have dismissed anyone who disagrees with them in the public square.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was mocked on social media Wednesday after she claimed a bill to codify abortion was the result of a minority ruling the majority. In her world, 49 liberals are the majority, while 51 moderates and conservatives are the minority.
The Senate failed to advance the Women’s Health Protection Act by a 51-to-49 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who voted with the Republican Party, explained he would not support the bill because it went beyond simply codifying abortion into federal law. According to Manchin, the bill would effectively overturn hundreds of state laws.
After the bill was defeated, Warren claimed the Senate filibuster must be eliminated. Her reason? Because the vote demonstrated minority rule.
“I believe in democracy, and I don’t believe the minority should have the ability to block things that the majority want to do. That’s not in the Constitution,” Warren told reporters.
“What we’re talking about right now are the individual rights and liberties of half the population of the United States of America. I think that’s enough to say, ‘It’s time to get rid of the filibuster,'” she added.

Warren’s claim that a minority is ruling over the majority was swiftly challenged by Twitter users.
“Um, a bipartisan MAJORITY of the Senate just voted down the Dems’ radical abortion bill. 51 is greater than 49, even using Harvard math. You don’t get to call the losing side the majority just because you agree with it,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) mocked.

“I guess CRT math says 49 is greater then (sic) 51,” another person mocked.

“I mean… the filibuster didn’t even factor in. It lost 51-49. The majority literally did what it wanted to do: kill the bill,” radio host Jason Rantz said. ”
