The United States Women’s National Hockey Team is currently preparing to boycott the IIHF Women’s World Championship in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in what is mostly a noble fight for equal treatment if not equal pay and amenities for the Olympic gold-medalist women’s team.
But a group of Democratic senators has (of course) stepped in to claim the “Social Justice” mantle of the moment, sending a letter to USA Hockey this afternoon demanding that the organization pay its players equitably. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren was the top advocate.
Liberals on Twitter were quick to brag that only Democrats had signed the letter. However, there are 2 glaring omissions in the story. First, there is no evidence that Warren approached any Republican members of the Senate to sign the letter. Likely, she preferred claiming it as another partisan “win” for social awareness.
Second, if USA Hockey is really a non-profit philanthropic organization, a Socialist like Elizabeth Warren ought to simply offer to help them out with Federal aid.
