You may not agree with Warren, but she is a class act. Calm, intelligent, sophisticated. So this douche bag calls her a "socialist whore."
Stay classy guys!
Stay classy guys!
Talking Points MemoElizabeth Warren faced a right-wing heckler at a campaign event Wednesday evening — who had some less than family-friendly words to say about her remarks that her work on Wall Street reform had provided an intellectual basis for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The Huffington Post reports:
Speaking in a packed VFW hall, Warren went on to address his question about her association with Occupy Wall Street. “I’ve been protesting what’s been going on on Wall Street for a very long time,” she said, but added that the movement has its own independent agenda and will proceed along its own course.
“Yeah, so has the Tea Party,” the man said, before losing his cool.
“Well, if you’re the intellectual creator of that so-called party,” he said, “you’re a socialist whore. I don’t want anything to do with you.” The crowd shouted him down as he added that Warren’s “boss,” presumably referring to the president, was “foreign-born.” He then attempted to storm out through a side door. Finding it locked, he retreated out the back of the VFW hall instead.
“I actually felt sorry for the guy. I really genuinely did,” Warren later told the Huffington Post. “He’s been out of work now for a year and a half. And bless his heart, I mean, he thought somehow it would help to come here and yell names.”
She also added: “I’m not angry with him, but he didn’t come up with the idea that his biggest problem was Occupy Wall Street. There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”
