Did you think it couldn’t get any worse than Obama? Then you haven’t met the next likely Democrat nominee for president.
Multimillionaire Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) blamed school loan debt on banks and Republicans in a fist-pumping speech at Minnesota’s Carleton College Saturday night. Stumping in St. Paul for Senator Al Franken, Mark Dayton and other Democratic candidates two weeks before the elections, Warren continued her war on financial institutions.
“The game is rigged, and the Republicans rigged it,” Warren said to a loud cheer.
“We’re coming after them,” she said.
Warren’s militant threat roused the college crowd. The Washington Post reported she was “mobbed” after the speech by kids lining up for photos. [A search for video of her speech came up blank. The above screenshot was taken from a split second from CBS video coverage of Sen. Franken.]
“She’s amazing. She shows that politics is a good thing,” said Rachel Palermo, 21, a senior at neighboring St. Olaf College. Some of her friends said they attended the rally just to see Warren.
Who cares if Palermo is only one of 10 college coeds gaga over Warren or even one of a very few who have ever heard of her? The media elects politicians, not the people. The Post and other left-leaning media keep pushing Warren as a “populist,” when her “you didn’t build that” is pure Marxist. (Look it up. Google Marx’s “Labor Theory of Value”).
Warren’s economic model is straight out of Venezuela–citizens work for the State, not themselves. Except her.
So why do young people have no problem calling out fake, rich pols with an ‘R’ after their names, but are super willing to give rich Wall Street Democrats their votes? Simple. It’s the messaging.
When college students hear “school loan debt” juxtaposed with the word “banks,” the hypocrisy of Warren’s own one-percenter lifestyle next to her vilification of those institutions that made her millions possible, never even registers on brains anesthetized by the constant, unrelenting message.
Four months ago Warren was bashing banks using the same exact language:
“A kid gets caught with a few ounces of pot and goes to jail, but a big bank breaks the law … and no one even gets arrested. The game is rigged.”
Students, in Franken’s words, think she’s a “rock star.” Yes. A rock star, like that other famous one sitting in the White House, who thinks bootstrap individualism and free market principles are oppressive and so ‘yesterday.’
White and guilty elites at high-priced colleges like Carleton love that message. They cheered for Warren on Saturday and when they are still living at home five years after graduation, and still paying off loans she promised relief from, they’ll still support her.
This kind of blind praise is like some of the prisoners of Stalin’s gulags who survived and actually wept when he died. The threat of facing the truth of his betrayal was too much for many who had believed in him early on. Go figure.
Some may consider the idea of Warren running for President a comical one. Not me. Warren has proven she has powerful backers. She is safely ensconced on the Hill spewing her anti-capitalist slogans after being swept into office in 2012 by big money. Liberals only see the ‘D’ after her name, not the fact that she lies about her heritage, and she calls out banks that stuffed her pockets.
As the Republican establishment continues to throw out names like Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney as possible 2016 nominees, and Tea Party conservatives put Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio on their top ten list, the Democrats are light years ahead. Whomever they have chosen, is being primed and painted as we speak. (Hint: her initials may not be HRC).
Things are bad enough as they are without someone in office who thinks you work for the government first and yourself second. Electing Elizabeth Warren as president would be declaring war on people who work for a living.
We don’t need to elect her to know what will happen should she hold any kind of executive power. Just look at the wonderful economy and society they’ve built in Venezuela. That’s Warren’s model.
