SCENE: Mitch BERG sees a flatbed cargo bike, with a parka-clad rider, bogged down in a snowdrift. He pulls his car over to help…
…only to see that the driver is Avery LIBRELLE.
BERG: Uh, hey, Avery. Looks like you’re stuck…
LIBRELLE: Don’t change the subject. Elizabeth Warren, like Kamala Harris before her, is falling in the polls because of sexism!
BERG: Sexism among Democrat primary voters?
LIBRELLE: Stop deflecting! She’s being targeted because white cis-males can’t stand an angry woman!
BERG: Huh. So even as the guardians of White Liberal Progressive culture tell us that “female rage” is a positive virtue, something to be celebrated on pain of social ostracism, you’d have me believe that Fauxcahontas, seeking the support of the people that support this view, is suffering from a patriarchal disdain for female rage?
LIBRELLE: Hey! You called her Fauxcahontas! Show some respect!
BERG: Warren has admitted she lied about the whole thing, and I have no respect for her whatsoever. So – either Warren is just a terrible candidate, or it’s the Democrat voters who can’t deal with “female rage”. (BERG gives a mighty push and dislodges the cargo bike)
LIBRELLE: (Pedaling merrily away) Clearly you’re a misogynist!
BERG: (Yelling after h…er, hi…er, LIBRELLE without any especial gusto) Clearly.
(BERG resumes trudging up the street)
