Elizabeth Warren was recently confronted about how she rails against the 1%, but lives the life of part of the privileged and wealthy 1% herself.
WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner caught up with Warren the other day and recorded his brief encounter, during which he asked the Massachusetts senator an easy question which she really never answered and ran around it with excuses as to why she somehow is not the same as the other 1% capitalist because she is above it.
From WRKO Radio’s Jeff Kuhner:
First, let me explain about the confrontation that took place. Warren—who I refer to as Chief Spreading Bull—was in studio being interviewed for a pre-taped veterans show. I was in my office, and someone mentioned to me that the Chief was actually at WRKO. I went over and checked and to my pleasant surprise, there she was. After about two minutes, her interview was over. She walked into the narrow hall outside of the studio. I walked up and asked if I could get a picture with her. She graciously said
yes. I then inquired whether I could ask her one question. Again, she said yes.
So I posed the one question no one in the media has dared to ask: Since Warren constantly rails against the “one-percent,” but lives in a mansion in Cambridge and is a multimillionaire—in other words, she is a part of and lives like the “one-percent”—is she not a hypocrite? The Chief was thunderstruck. Her face turned red; her body began to shake; and in anger, jabbing her finger in the air at me, she lashed out in self-righteous indignation. She mentioned her humble origins, her poor “mommy” and “daddy,” her three brothers who served in the military, her desire to become a “special needs teacher,” and her decision to go to “commuter” college and state law school. All of this was not only boilerplate. It was irrelevant. She was embarrassed by the issue—and it showed. Ultimately, her answer boiled down to this: She was given “equality of opportunity” through Big Government programs, and she wants the same for all Americans. Then, she simply ran off.
In short, she dodged my question. And the reason is simple: She is a liar and a hypocrite. No amount of dissembling can change this. Warren’s left-wing progressivism is marked by class warfare, soak-the-rich redistribution of wealth and hatred for the so-called “one-percent.” She famously told a group of supporters in Andover, Massachusetts, that business owners and entrepreneurs weren’t responsible for their success. “You didn’t build that,” as then-President Obama later put it. Warren champions economic collectivism and state socialism. Her philosophy can be distilled to one seminal idea: Capitalism is evil. For Warren, the great injustice of our time is “crony capitalism” and a “rigged” economic system that favors the wealthy few over the “ninety-nine” percent. She brags about being the intellectual founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement—radical leftists who have engaged in violent street protests, destroying private property, damaging cars and businesses, assaulting police officers and calling for the outright confiscation of wealth.
During her term, the Chief has done almost nothing for the people of Massachusetts. She’s written books, given speeches and augmented her national profile. But in terms of legislative accomplishments, Warren has achieved zero. What she has done is advance her self-interest—politically and financially. She seeks to use the Bay State as a springboard toward running for the presidency in 2020.
Warren is a fraud. She is a phony Indian, a phony progressive and a phony senator. This is why when I confronted her she panicked. Because deep down, she knows it.
