Liberals applauding Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s “fight like a girl” phrase may not want to hear where the line originated.
Sarah Palin called out the Massachusetts Democrat after Warren tweeted a photo of her posing with the “Fearless Girl” statue in New York City. The tweet featured the caption, “fight like a girl.”

Warren used the line again in a National Public Radio interview promoting her new book.
But the same line was used repeatedly over the years by the woman liberals love to hate.
“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,” the former Alaska governor told Breitbart News.
While Warren appropriated the line to endear her to feminists in her party, Palin powerfully used the phrase at a speech in Madison, Wisconsin, in 2011.
Calling out the Washington establishment, Palin praised the regular citizens of Wisconsin for standing up against unions when the GOP wouldn’t take them on.
“Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women’s hockey team, those champions, ” she said in front of the Wisconsin State Capitol, “If we should be suggesting to GOP leaders they need to learn how to fight like a girl!”
Palin, who was John McCain’s vice presidential nominee in 2008, even used the line in a Facebook post in January.
Warren told NPR she was inspired by the phrase when she saw a young girl carrying a sign proclaiming “fight like a girl” during an anti-Trump women’s march.
