Elizabeth #sillyforma Warren

Very nice video production by Jack Gately appearing at Red Mass Group:

Update:  You knew this was coming, from a columnist at The Nation:  ‘Boston Herald’ vs. Elizabeth Warren: Will Sexism Win?  Oh yes, because catching a candidate for Senate falsely claiming minority status and making outlandish rants is sooooo sexist.

Hee, hee… the LI water torture. Drip, drip, drip, drip….

Hoisted. Own. Petard.

Hopefully…

This is awesome! Scott Brown should smear this all over the airwaves for everyone in Massachusetts to see. I think she will be Martha Coakley II with all of these stupid gaffes she keeps making.

Out. Of. Touch.

I am still amazed and annoyed:

1. Why hasn’t she been reprimanded or fired from Harvard?
2. Is Harvard guilty of improper vetting of her minority background claims? Isn’t there a penalty/fine [or a Roberts “tax”] for negligently submitting false labor certifications to the DOL?
3. Didn’t Harvard question her white to Native American to white claims? Nobody wants to step up to the plate with some SOLID answers.
4. Isn’t plagiarism [even cookbook plagiarism] a serious offense at an academic institution?

    1. Why hasn’t she been reprimanded or fired from Harvard?
    1A: She’s a liberal. Rules don’t apply to liberals.

    2. Is Harvard guilty of improper vetting of her minority background claims? Isn’t there a penalty/fine [or a Roberts “tax”] for negligently submitting false labor certifications to the DOL?
    2A: They are liberals, like Corzine, no one gets punished for anything if they are liberals. If you are doubting this, see Mary Jo Kopechne.

    3. Didn’t Harvard question her white to Native American to white claims? Nobody wants to step up to the plate with some SOLID answers.
    3A: The media is the Democrat Party. They intermarry and trade people left and right, so no hard questions from them. The universities are outright communist sympathizers, so you will get nothing from them. And, I am detecting a hint of racism in this question, let me get back to you from Chris Mathews.

    4. Isn’t plagiarism [even cookbook plagiarism] a serious offense at an academic institution?
    4A: This only applies to conservatives, and liberals who step out of line. This definitely does not apply to politicians running for office in Massachusetts. Okay, now I am sure, you are definitely being racist.

    This is the playbook:

    Republicans=EVIL

    Democrats=Saintly Angels who are smeared by the ReTHUGlicans/Karl Rove/Koch Brothers/Chick Fil A/Christians/ Leftist outrage organization de jour.

    By the way, did you see that Mitt Romney is most definitely not paying his taxes. Harry Reid told me.

      X 4.5-trillion!

      Also, I know a guy whose brother’s, mother-in-law’s, half-brother knows a lady whose son’s, son-in-law went to school with a guy who knows a guy at Bain Capital that said what he told Reid was a crock of bullsh!t. He said that Reid wouldn’t let him out of the men’s room stall at the Golden Corral until he said something bad about Romney’s taxes.

      I swear that’s true. On a stack of Obama 2012 bumper stickers.

        This is true. I was told this by the same person. Harry was caught with his pants around his ankles like Teddy Kennedy and Billy Clinton. I heard from another source that Teddy taught Billy the “penguin walk”.

The clip is a good first cut but I have a couple of suggestions.

1. IMO the Tiananmen clip is over the top. The video would be better if that clip were replaced with China’s ghost cities or headlines about problems with their high-speed rail.

2. If Warren has literally “thrown rocks” at people she disagrees with, that is big news. However, that clip is so short that it invites questions about the context of the quote.

A more solid choice would be juxtaposing some Occupy damage with Warren’s boast that she supplied the intellectual foundation.

3. I agree with the RedMass commenter who said that Martha Coakley would do less damage in the Senate than Warren. (Not only that, IMO Warren views the Senate as a steppingstone to higher office.)

(I will have an awful lot to say about Scott Brown if he blows this election by his arrogance toward the Tea Party people without whom he would not be in office. Get on your knees and beg for forgiveness, Brown!)

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments.

    Nothing says Chinese repression to me more than the Tiananmen Square “Tank Man”.

    I did play around with including “intellectual foundation” quote and some OWS footage, in earlier drafts, but cut for length.

    Stay well, Jack

Owwie…

Can I get you a crab mayonnaise poultice for that….?

Or would you prefer some bar exam Crème fraîche?

She doesn’t have the grace or presence to work on the drive through line at a Chick-fil-A in Tucson, let alone the U.S. Senate.

Keep the rock throwing. It emphasizes what a complete and cowardly phony she is. I knew her type in college in the early 70s. They were chock full of radical talk in the student lounge but when it came time to actually protest something they were nowhere to be found. They needed to preserve their career options and a suspension or arrest could limit their future choices.

Professor,

Is it possible, please, to put a short transcript after your video posts? Oftentimes, they are not iPad friendly.

Thank you!

Good job, Jack! We need more citizen videos to call these jerks out.

I love it!

Now if only some courageous individual would make one for (Dirty) Harry Reid…

Why hasn’t she been reprimanded or fired from Harvard?

Because at the time it was in Harvard’s interest to present a “minority hire”.

1. Re: ‘Boston Herald’ vs. Elizabeth Warren: Will Sexism Win?

They always tell us what they fear. They are sunk so deep in denial that they can’t help themselves.

2. OT: The author of the Warren piece also has a “comparison” of Ted Cruz with the latest Great Left Hope, San Antonio mayor Julian Castro. Not surprisingly, the column is a hit piece on Cruz.

I suspect we’ll be talking about both of them in the future. My preliminary impression of Castro is that he seems a smarmy metrosexual, but obviously I’m not objective.

3. Lizzie can’t be pleased that the Democrats picked Castro over her as the convention keynoter. IMHO the decision may well have been influenced by the success of Bill and other activists who have thrown Warren’s November prospects into doubt.

So I am racist to expect a person of color to do what they say they will do, and sexist to expect a woman to be straightforward when she defines her heritage. OK, I can see where I went wrong on that. From now on I’ll try to do better. What can I do to be forgiven? Vote for who? Never mind. Guilty as charged.
