For someone that isn’t running for president Senator Elizabeth Warren sure makes a lot of campaign stops. And for someone that used to pretend to be a different race, she sure slings the accusation of racism liberally. At an appearance in Phoenix that had nothing to do with the people in Massachusetts she supposedly represents, Warren called all Congressional Republicans racists.
Warren started things off in her speech before Netroots Nation on Friday by saying how racist America is:
“Progressives believe that it shouldn’t take a revolution on YouTube to drive a revolution in law enforcement. It shouldn’t take a hurricane in New Orleans or a massacre in Charleston for Americans to wake up to what is happening – what is still happening – to people of color in this country,” said Warren to a round of applause.
It’s nice to see a sitting US Senator basing her speeches on the rantings of Kanye West, isn’t it? After establishing that America is racist, she placed it all on Republicans:
“Now look, House Republicans may still want to fly the Confederate flag, and Republican leaders may cower in the shadow of Donald Trump. But the American people understand that black lives matter and America is not a country that stands for racism, bigotry or hatred,” Warren said.
So because House Republicans want to fly the Confederate flag (which isn’t true) and Republican leaders cower in Donald Trump’s shadow (which also isn’t true) all Republicans stand for racism, bigotry and hatred? And they don’t believe that black life is important? That’s really one of the most effed up things I’ve heard a democrat ever say.
Let’s examine her argument, shall we? House Republicans never even hinted that they wish to fly the Confederate flag over a national building or property; they just don’t want to ban private citizens from placing flags on the grave sites of their loved ones. There is a huge difference between hoisting the Confederate flag over the Capitol and not wanting to crap on people’s 1st Amendment right to freedom of expression.
As for the “Trumped up” charge, Republican leaders including Speaker of the House John Boehner and every major presidential candidate have condemned Donald Trump’s statements on illegal aliens. No Republican is cowering from Trump; they think he’s an idiot. It must be nice to live in a fantasy world where things are what you say they are like Elizabeth Warren does.
Now that we’ve established that Warren’s charges of racism against Republicans are lies, let’s look at some actual racism: As a professor at Harvard Law School, Warren used to pretend that she was a Native American Indian despite the fact that she’s as white and European as they come. The school touted her as a diversity hire and she benefited professionally from the ruse. It just doesn’t get much more racist than stealing another race and culture for personal gain.
For Warren to say all Republicans are racist is not only hypocritical, but also false and slanderous. I would like to see the Senate censure her for these remarks and even individual Republicans sue her over them. For someone as full of crap as Elizabeth Warren, the only way she’ll ever learn is if there are consequences. She never really paid a price for pretending to be an Indian; it would be nice if she suffered for lying about the Republican Party.
