Skip to comments.The Viral Video Of Elizabeth Warren Going After GOP On 'Class Warfare' Charge
Posted on 09/21/2011 6:15:26 PM PDT by Nachum
Massachusetts Senate candidate and Wall Street "Enemy #1" Elizabeth Warren was caught on video last month decrying the GOP's charge that Democrats are engaging in "class warfare."
I hear all this, you know, Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever, Warren said. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.
She goes on to describe how the "social contract" helps everyone.
You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didnt have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.

She is a better looking version of Martha Coakley and that is not saying much at all. Scott Brown does not have anything to worry about.
Is she admitting corporations don’t pay income tax?
Egads! She is a mess!
That’s how a communist thinks. Who does she think pays for that list of “public” goodies she lists, such as the police, the roads, and education? It’s those producers of society that she thinks “owe” society! According to her, the producers are supposed to get on their knees and thank “society” for the great job we did educating the employees that took the jobs created by those producers! Such great education that would turn out an ignoramus like her! She’s the one who has not contributed anything to society.
There's some who will call her a sellout for letting them keep any of it.
But I worry about Scott Brown - thank heavens he is not my rep.
I used to think Liz Warren was at least intelligent. Sheesh, what a misguided bitter class waring hag!
Communist liberal rhetoric is getting really old. There is no poverty in America so I’m tired of bimbos like this whining that there is. If we had our own poverty, we wouldn’t have to import so much of it from Central and South America.
OK, she’s saying it takes a village. But she owes it to explain why does it take a bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger village full of bums every year? And she should hardly be talking about paying forward when she’s been smack in the middle of borrowing/stealing backward.
Apparently Ms. Warren isn't familir with how Obama and the Union thugs did precisely this.
Are those who just can’t abide RINO Scott Brown cheering for this woman to replace him as senator from Massachusetts?
A Maryland 7-11 store was robbed Saturday by a 'flash mob' - a large group of people coordinated by Twitter, or other social media. The events are also called 'flash robs.'
Possibly three dozen people walked into a Maryland 7-11 convenience store early last Saturday morning and walked out with candy, drinks, and other snacks in what appears to be another instance of a flash mob robbery
Did you see the testimony of Peter Schiff to congress on the Obama Jobs bill? He laid waste to this claptrap.
He stated clearly that he was moving a great deal of his operation overseas because of the kind of nonsense regulations and taxation of the Liz Warrens of our government.
One of the best bits he said was to point out that Old Henry Ford paid his employees the equivalent of $2,500/week and there was NO income tax at the time. Can you imagine?
The premise starts with “You built a factory out there.”
Stop right there.
That person’s risk may cost him everything if he is not successful. His money. His home. Every last cent.
I’ve lived through that. Don’t tell me about you wanting to take my wealth but not my risk. Don’t even.
She's the poster child for collectivism. She should be the queen of the hive.
I read part of his testimony and it was indeed powerful - the part I saw.
And moving a factory overseas sure pour’s cold water on Warren’s class warfare claptrap about “we paid for this and that” and so on.
