The Professor Gives a Lecture
Speaking before the crowd of Democrat power brokers and their sycophants, die-hard left wing fanatics, and a slew of stupid people bused in to puff up the crowd, Professor Elizabeth Warren sank to a new nadir of negative speechifying. Not since the cold war has there been a similarly fanatical, ideologically motivated speech, and then only in Communist countries.
Warren pushes a bullying brand of deep cynicism that plays off of the basest human qualities: ignorance, lazy thinking, class envy, gullibility, insecurity and out-and-out fear. It is predicated on urban legends, outdated tropes, ossified grudges, and 70's-style conspiracy myths. This sort of "worst of" greatest-hits type stump speech could have been arranged by a software program: a mealy melange of vapid banalities, boilerplate bromides, and hackneyed trite shibboleths we've heard till our ears bleed this silly season.
With absolutely no facts or evidence to support her misanthropic world-view this nasty dishonest arrogant left-wing jerk and liar simply points at a group of people and swears out a slander: "The system is rigged". In other words "They robbed you". Who "they" are is not articulated so you fill in the blank: millionaires and billionaires, rich people, corporate "multinationals" as the phonies like to say, along with Romney, Ryan, and their gang of teabagging repugs.
This is rabble rousing of the most degrading sort. If the entire "system" is "rigged", the citizen is disburdened of all responsibility for anything that has gone wrong. If the whole shebang is cooked, one can reason, honest efforts are futile, and all kinds of treacherous immoral behaviors can be justified: petty corruption, gaming the system, or simply throwing in the towel and applying for every benefit and freebie one can connive.
This aggressive garbage encourages failure, sloth, resentment and it eschews personal responsibility. Warren keeps an arm's length from her Occupy troops but she has admitted setting the mental table for those lost souls and hardened ideologues who would cause our destruction.
All the other tired stereotypes were there last night too:
"where billionaires pay their taxes just like their secretaries do" -- A smarmy misleading smear without coming right out and saying it thus avoiding any "fact-checkers".
"No, Gov. Romney, corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance..." Women love that line evidently. Pass me a barf bag.
"He wants to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires. But for middle-class families who are hanging on by their fingernails? His plans will hammer them with a new tax hike of up to 2,000 dollars." Repeat ad infinitum
More lies: "For years, families had been tricked by credit cards, fooled by student loans and cheated on mortgages." Lizzie to the rescue: "I had an idea for a consumer financial protection agency to stop the rip-offs. The big banks sure didn't like it, and they marshaled one of the biggest lobbying forces on earth to destroy the agency before it ever saw the light of day" Good grief. With "protectors" like these, who needs attackers?
She got it all in: "Cayman Islands" "oil companies guzzle down billions in subsidies."Middle class"
This "speech" was a mealy stew of distortions, falsehoods, innuendos, and stone cold lies. Warren is apparently the kind of sociopathic liar that could commit a crime and then calmly pass a polygraph or a Sodium Amytal session.
Pray that this shameful wretch loses so she can no longer pollute the political discourse of our great nation.
