Yesterday, actress and rabid feminist Amber Tamblyn lost it over Sen. Elizabeth Warren being called out by a Twitter user for lying about her support for Medicare for all.

As you may know, Warren is currently going through a tough time with Sen. Bernie Sanders currently trouncing Warren in both the polls and in the headlines. This has many people putting Warren through the ringer, which naturally has feminists losing their minds and proclaiming sexism from the summit of Mt. Bulls**t.

Tamblyn is one such feminist who took to Twitter run defense for her chosen candidate, and sent out a fun message for her fellow Warren supporters.

“To the people being harassed, bullied, and talked down to, both in public and behind closed doors, because they believe whole heartedly in the message, momentum, and brilliance that is Elizabeth Warren— Keep going,” tweeted Tamblyn.

“Keep fighting. She’s the one,” she added.

She’s not, but Tamblyn is mistaken as a Twitter user going by “LukusBlack” pointed out. Warren’s message isn’t to be believed because Warren herself doesn’t believe in them. As Black pointed out, Warren wasn’t for Medicare for All until she felt it would benefit her chances. What’s more, she was more than willing to take corporate money until she realized she’d benefit more from not.

“Warren said she was for M4A. She wasn’t, and she’s been deceitful about it ever since. She said she’d take corporate money, and only decided not to when she knew for a fact she’d make more without them. She JUST lied to smear Bernie. Don’t vote for someone without research,” tweeted Black.

At this point, Tamblyn was backed into a corner and didn’t have much of a way out. In that moment, Tambyln did what many feminists do, and that’s to proclaim that what Warren told was “her truth” and then proceeded to call her opponent “sexist.”

“She didn’t lie. She told HER truth. Keep your sexist shit out of my timeline,” replied Tamblyn.

The truth is that “her truth” is the exact same thing as “her lie” and any feminist using that phrase knows that in their heart of hearts.

The concept behind “her truth” or more generally “your truth” is the belief that the way you see the world from your perspective is the way the world is. Full stop.

If that’s the way we want to define “truth” then no one is at fault for any mistakes they make. A man who hits another person with his car can say that he had the right of way and that the pedestrian did not. The motorist could clearly not have had the right of way but the motorist was telling “his truth” and that’s the end of the story. He can’t be blamed for the serious injuries afflicted on the pedestrian.

Let’s take it a bit further…

Hitler believed the Jewish people were at fault for his country’s problems and believed it to such an extent that he tortured and murdered them by the millions. Are we to say that Hitler wasn’t wrong for thinking this because he was just in full belief of “his truth?”

What is being described as “her truth” is, in reality, just “her perspective,” or in Warren’s case “her lie.”

There can be many perspectives, but there can only be one truth or base set of facts. Tossing out facts in order to fit your opinion is not forming a truth, even if you preface it with words of ownership.

Warren is a liar, and that’s THE truth.
