Elizabeth Warren: I Created 'Occupy Wall Street'
Business Insider ^ | 10/25/2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 10/25/2011 8:52:20 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Massachusetts Senate candidate, consumer activist, and Wall Street Enemy #1 Elizabeth Warren took credit for the Occupy Wall Street movement in a new interview with The Daily Beast.

“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she told Samuel Jacobs. “I support what they do.”

Warren, who was once a registered Republican, said she decided to enter politics because she realized “I can’t just leave this to people who are going to wreck the lives of millions of American families if they get the chance."

“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she told Samuel Jacobs.

That explains why the OWS bowel movement is intellectually bankrupt.

“I can’t just leave this to people who are going to wreck the lives of millions of American families if they get the chance.”

I’m confused. So, now she’s running against Obama?

Cra*pping on cars and molesting teenagers? WTG, Lizzy!

The 'intellectual foundation' for OWS is best summed up in a quote from one of the protestors.

I want to be self-sufficient without lifting a finger.

if Scott Brown had any balls he’d use this in an ad and play it with all the anti-semitism taking place in the background...

I created much of the intellectual foundation for a movement that can’t articulate what they stand for or what they want. Boy, that’s impressive......./s

The attorneys of the women RAPED by the OWS protesters now have
some very deep pockets to go after
-- if they can get past professional courtesy.

So does this mean she was scheming with Lerner while at the Treasury Department. Beck has reported ex-SEIU Stephen Lerner visited Warren in December 2010.

Congressman Wants Justice Department To Investigate ‘Terrorist Plans’ In Former Union Official's Bank Plot(March 2011)

In a forum at Pace University earlier this month, Stephen Lerner, the former SEIU official, revealed a “secret plan” to “cause a new financial crisis . . . destroy J.P. Morgan . . . and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power” by using “civil disobedience” to create “the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.”

Scott Brown must be thrilled. About the only thing that could fire up Republicans to support him again is having some moonbat like this as his opponent.

I suppose we’re too barbaric now to reinstate flogging and have the witch displayed in the stocks.

Oh how I dream of a more civilized age.

“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she told Samuel Jacobs.

Either she hasn't been listening to the bone-headed moronic statements made by large numbers of ignoramuses that were too brain-dead not to open their pie-holes on camera, or she's truly one of these brain-dead idiot protesters at least in spirit (since she doesn't appear to be able to bothered with being physically involved).

The real 1% parasitic class is government.

The establishment is funding their own “grass roots protests” against liberty now.

For all those quaking on the right at the sight of an ascendant Warren, rest easy. Warren’s no lefty. In fact, Warren was a registered Republican into her 40s. When it comes to ideology, Warren makes for a rotten heir to Kennedy.

No Comment.

Get a load of this Occupy Atlanta gem.

Not sure what she's actually saying, but I believe it's pretty representative of the whole movement.

She is from Oklahoma. The narcissistic thing is a product of the Ivy League. Unless there is something in the fields of Oklahoma that hasn’t been tested yet.

“I created Occupy Wall Street.”

Sure you did, you crazy left-wing b*tch.

And Al Gore invented the Internet, the day after Elvis and Marilyn Monroe were spotted at a gas station in Kalamazoo.

If so Warren is truly an idiot, as there is no intellect shown in any of the OWS activity.

She's a little late! Reading this one might consider her a conservative, if one didn't know of her other lunatic rantings.

This is hysterical. Let her take all the credit for this movement that is turning out to be a huge problem, costly for taxpayers, rampent with crime, and disgustingly filled with grifters and street people. Let her claim ownership.

Funny how someone's ego will always get them in trouble. Let's see her try to squirm out of her claim once the bloom wears off the rose for even the Liberals and the OWS crowd turns really ugly

Warren is a control freak who won't be happy unless she is the one who will be wrecking the lives of millions of American families.
