Elizabeth Warren is really pissing off Wall Street and their pro-plutocrat allies in the right-wing media.
After a video of Warren talking about the deficit and the social contract went viral last week (see above), Rush Limbaugh, the Fiscal Times and Rich Lowrey all spent time attacking her. Now, Lowrey has decided to spend another column going after her, and places like the Daily Caller and Reason have piled on. There is also this gem from right-wing blog Wizbang:
When I hear the word “contract” I
reach for my revolver think of two unique definitions — formally, a legally binding mutual agreement made between two or more parties, or idiomatically, an attempt to hire an assassin to kill one or more of your enemies.
Warren's rapid ascent is scaring apologists for the war that Wall Street, big corporations and the uber wealthy are waging on the middle class. They want to make sure when anyone debunks their nonsense like Warren has, that person takes a big hit so that no one follows.
We're not going to let that happen. At Daily Kos, we're joining with CREDO Action to thank Elizabeth Warren for speaking the truth. She needs to know—and those who might follow in her footsteps need to know—that we have her back in this fight.
