The Cult of Warren

I’ve been keeping my eye out for the next Lefty Icon who, like Obama, will become the revered leader of the “progressive” movement while simultaneously betraying everything it purports to believe. Ladies and gentlemen, Elizabeth Warren:

At a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast in South Boston this past weekend, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) took a jab at pro-legalization Republican State Representative Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk), who is currently vying for the Republican nomination for Senate in Massachusetts’s upcoming special election.

Addressing the crowd, Senator Warren said, “I advise everyone to pay very close attention to Dan Winslow’s platform. He has a 100 percent ranking from the gun lobby and he’s for the legalization of marijuana. He wants us armed and stoned.”

Let the record show that on Planet Warren, the only conceivable reason to support legal pot is to want everyone to get high.

Addendum: If you want to see Warren opposing legalization with a direct “no” rather than wrapping the sentiment in a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast joke, go here.

Warren is rapidly becoming a hero among the Lefties for her ignorant diatribe in the “you didn’t build that” vein and her (occasionally justified) criticisms of regulators at Senate hearings. The image she has built is the sensible woman who is also very liberal and says what liberals always wish their politicians would say.

In the end, however, she is just another politician who thinks we are idiots and government is God. This is why she supports financial regulation that hems in all our decisions and allows us to only put our money where she thinks we should. This is why she thinks a $22/hour minimum wage isn’t an absurdity. And this is why she of course supports the War on Drugs.

This won’t hurt her political prospects. Being the worst President in 20 years on marijuana policy never hurt Obama’s.

    I’m confused – isn’t the “progressive” movement all about embracing Marx and buttfucking the nation? I mean, both as a public platform and actual behavior….

    To be completely honest people don’t smoke pot for the taste or the burning hacking cough…

    I have a few liberal buddies who enjoy pot. Explaining the Obama administration’s record on pot to them vs what Bush’s record was has a very profound effect. It is very hard for them to believe that The One! has not got their back on this. How can a die-hard liberal have the same opinion as the hard-core conservatives?

    He wants us armed and stoned.

    Better than the currently legal armed and drunk. Stoned guys don’t want to fight and kill. They just want their cheetos and Scooby-Doo.

    False flag AND cheap shot

    Stoned guys don’t want to fight and kill. They just want their cheetos and Scooby-Doo.

    And will make excellent cannon fodder too for the ‘legal armed and drunk’.
    just sayin’

    That’s actually because, as Hal pointed out just before the election, Obama is actually more conservative than many Republicans will ever be.

    SO – I think you’ve just summed up every single disagreement there has been on this blog in the last 3 years…

    Maybe – are you saying that people don’t know the difference between “libertarian” and “progressive”, or that “progressives” actually don’t know that they are Marxists?

    Funny

    False flag AND cheap shot

    Not intended as a cheap shot (& Hornady ain’t cheap). I’ve just known some guys that did stupid things with firearms when they were drunk. I’ve also heard a few stories about drunk hunters that can’t even walk out of the woods, but they were earlier taking shots at what they thought was game. An altered mind is not a good combo with firearms, no matter what the drug.

    Fair enough but your hunters anecdotes, if magnified by a factor of 1 million, would fit most drunk driving scenarios too.

    Down here the phrase “Hey, hold my beer and watch this…” is a common greeting among friends. Hunting accidents OTOH are pretty rare considering the available firepower in Mississippi.

    The increasing meth problem has the potential to really skew those figures here so some pot that gives a good “body stone” might help to mellow out those ‘tweekers’… or so I’ve been told.
