1%er Elizabeth Warren Tries and Fails to Square Her Extravagant Wealth With Her Marxist Rhetoric

Elizabeth Warren is one very rich faux Indian. She rakes in money generated by capitalism hand over fist:

Warren has made hundreds of thousands working as a consultant for insurance companies and big banks. Travelers insurance paid Warren $212,000 between 2008 and 2010 for consulting work. Warren, who claims responsibility for creating “the intellectual foundation” for the occupy movement, has also done consulting work for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale, a law firm that represents Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs.

Yet the anticapitalist rhetoric she exploits is straight out of the Communist Manifesto. WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner called her on it and got what you would expect in response — a steaming load of crap:

Becoming rich despite humble beginnings is the American story. It is possible because we are relatively free. The poor can become rich through their own efforts, just as the rich can become poor through their own mistakes. Those who become rich and then try to freeze the current strata in amber by imposing socialism are pulling the ladder up after them so that others can’t follow.

Nothing sticks in the craw like the sanctimonious malice of well-to-do Marxists.

On tips from Torcer and Varla.

    Princess Sling Bullshit By Ton is just another friggin’ limousine liberal.

    Fauxchahontas spoke of the state law school only costing $450 per semester, and goes on to say that’s not available anymore. Of course it’s not – when the state colleges are populated by private sector washouts and those same schools feel obliged to pay them upwards of six figures, that’s why the $450 semester is a distant memory.

    Warren could be a poster child for making your own way and succeeding at it, but instead decided to “check the box” on her Hah-vahd application, and she immediately gained acceptance as a double minority and leapfrogged ahead of others possibly more qualified.

    In this video she excoriates anyone that has built a successful business, stating that the rest of us paid for the roadways etc. Hey Fake Indian – who paid for your $450 per semester state law school education? You?

    By the way, Jeff Kuhner is on WRKO radio in Boston, and his show is streamed over the internet. Definitely worth listening to if you’re near a computer or can get it on your smartphone –

    Where the productive man dreams of the things he might create if only left alone by his fellows, the Progressive dreams of the world he could create if only the lives and property of his fellows were at his disposal.

    As much as I dislike her, she held her own. The interviewer just kept repeating “…but you’re in the 1%.” It would have been much better if he’d approached it like Dave did “You got all sorts of opportunities that you now want to take away from young people via socialism.”

  5. SenatorJPO says:

    Elizabeth Warren reminds me of former WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan, who remains on their payroll (as a “personality”) and earns residual income from purchases of videos of his wrestling matches, but still decries capitalism as “evil.”

    Obviously, D.B. wouldn’t have had the opportunity to earn wrestling-related income in a non-capitalist country!

    Wrestling fans are generally crapping on him in response, though, so it’s not like Daniel Bryan represents “the wrestling community” or any significant portion of its fanbase.


    I really enjoy how the sidebar and footer ads bog-down every page on Counter Moonbattery and make it take 5 minutes to load the comment section.

    It really discourages “impatient, whiny Millennials” from posting en masse! *thumbs*

    Not-at-all like that socialist Wisconsin Public Radio website, which loads quickly but is constantly begging readers for money — kind of like the “keep Counter Moonbattery alive” blurb.

    Ok, fine. I see what she’s doing: She’s riding the Sanders “Free College” bulls**t tactic for all of the brainless leftist college students out there. The old “Vote for me & you’ll get free college!” line. I wonder how many decades it’ll take for leftwing students to figure that one out…

    Jester, I know people who were hippies way back when, that are now in their sixties like me….You know the types….The couples where the woman wears dresses that are like tents down to the floor, with no makeup, and their husbands have those very dashing gray pony-tails and wear juvenile looking t-shirts with political messages on them? And of course Birkenstocks on the feet of both of them……

    They STILL haven’t figured it out! So I’d say the answer to your question is NEVER— for at least some of them sadly.

  9. Frank says:

    Federally backed student loans are also responsible for the demise of affordable colleges. Colleges raise tuition to stratospheric levels, knowing the student loan program will pay up front no matter how overpriced and irrelevant the “education” they sell is.

  10. Frank says:

    She can’t wait to get her hand in your pocket!

  11. Eddie_Valiant says:

    Couldn’t agree with you more. I’ve been saying for a long time now to eliminate ALL federal funds to colleges, with the possible exception of tuition payments for veterans who have served at least eight years.

    There are way too many people attending college who, in the past, would have never made the cut. These students are nothing more than walking dollar signs for too many colleges.

  12. Billy Two Knives says:

    In other words Warren is your typical lying, self serving, hypocritical Democrat.
