Much like a dictator, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren appears convinced that businesses shouldn’t have the right to criticize her with so-called “snotty tweets.”

In a stunning tweet Thursday that was so dictatorial in nature that it inspired virtually everybody to call her out, the Democrat senator essentially told Amazon that she wants to break it up so that it lacks the power to heckle her.

The insinuation in her tweet was that, as a smaller business versus a corporate powerhouse, Amazon would have no other option but to bow to her majesty.

View the tweet below:

The tweet was provoked by Amazon clapping back after Warren complained during a Senate Finance committee hearing on Thursday about corporations like Amazon exploiting “loopholes and tax havens to pay close to nothing in taxes.”

Listen:

In a three-tweet reply posted that evening, Amazon noted that, one, it’s paid billions in taxes, two, it’s invested billions in creating new jobs, and three, it’s merely been following the laws that have been established by senators like Warren.

Look:

It was this fairly polite rebuttal that inspired Warren to reveal her true Democrat colors and blatantly threaten Amazon for the apparent crime of standing up to her.

Amazon was stunned by the tweet:

So were a number of onlookers, some of them members of the mainstream press, and others some of the same conservative commentators who feel disgust toward Amazon over its continued “woke” censorship of dissenting ideas.

Look (*Language warning):

The last guy is the editor at TechDirt, a site that is certainly no fan of Republicans or their presidents.

Warren, one of the most radical congressional Democrats, has been pestering Amazon and other large companies for years for allegedly not paying its “fair share.”

Yet in a blog post published last year, the retailer claimed it’d paid $1 billion in federal income tax expenses, $2.4 billion in other federal taxes and $1.6 billion in state taxes in 2019 alone.

However, the hubbub over Warren’s tweet comes as Amazon is facing intense scrutiny for the alleged practice of essentially forcing its employees to urinate in bottles so that they don’t “waste time” going to the restroom.

Amazon has denied the veracity of this claim, but mounting evidence suggests it’s been lying.
