The pro-Hillary Clinton group HRC Super Volunteers have warned New York Times reporter Amy Chozick that she is “on notice” for coded sexism and have issued a list of words they believe the press should avoid.

“A group called HRC Super Volunteers just warned me ‘We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,’” Miss Chozicktweeted Wednesday to her 16,000 followers.

“Sexist words, they say, include ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident,’” she wrote in a subsequent tweet.

“Also sexist, according to HRC Super Volunteers: ‘Secretive’ and ‘will do anything to win, represents the past, out of touch,” Miss Chozickcontinued.

“‘You are on notice that we will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism…’ the email reads,” she said.

The Twitter account belonging to HRC Super Volunteers retweeted all four of Miss Chozick’s messages.

In a pinned tweet, the group says, “Super volunteers, help us find journalists smearing Hillary. We must push back against their sexism.”

The tweet links to a Google search for instances in which the words Miss Chozick listed were used to describe Mrs. Clinton.

The Daily Caller reports that the HRC Super Volunteers have been anxiously awaiting the former secretary of state to announce her bid for the presidency, with one organizer of the independent group boasting to colleagues that “our supervols tended to be more loyal to HRC than hired staff who worried about getting a job after the campaign. I think back to the staff party in Denver when me, Ahmed, and another top vol were the only ones with Hillary buttons.”
