If you’re reading this blog, you’ve definitely heard about the 1986 Coretta Scott King letter regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and what happened with Liz Warren when she read it on the Senate floor at circa midnight on Monday night. But you probably don’t know the whole story. That’s what I’m here to tell you because by the time you wake up this morning, it’s probably going to be even bigger.
Liz Warren, like A LOT of people on the left, is a professional victim. She describes herself as having grown up “on the ragged edges” of the middle class. Her bio says she was the first in her “immediate family” to go to college. That qualifier of “immediate family” is a neat trick the details of which are steadfastly avoided in any biographical information located online. She went to George Washington University, a top-half-of-the-top-tier private school.
Warren gained entry into the warm little center of the upper middle class via her marriage to a NASA mathematician, who sent her to Rutgers Law School as soon as her eldest child was weaned off her teet. She thanked him by divorcing him in 1978, 2 years after she graduated from law school, and married her Harvard law professor boyfriend 2 years after that.
The mouthy little firecracker from Oklahoma leveraged this new marriage all the way up the academic chain to Harvard. She had also famously claimed on a legal registry that she was native American, and Harvard exploited this questionable heritage for tax purposes for years. Harvard continues to this day to decline to answer questions about whether this information contributed to their hiring decision.In the 1990s she got herself recommended to a federal commision, where she re-cast herself as a working class hero. The rest is history. But she never lost her penchant for claiming victimhood.
Now Liz is quickly transforming herself again, this time into a spittle-flecked vessel for the left’s unhinged outrage over Donald Trump. Just as endearing as the anonymous native American image she’s previously used is the pristine image of Coretta Scott King (CSK) she’s currently using. CSK is indisputably beyond reproach. Her life stands as a tribute to what good people can accomplish when they are willing to go about a monumental task like insisting on and winning civil rights by branding and selling it as nonviolent positive change. And it is inside the hollowed out corpse of this beautiful visage that Liz Warren has climbed and from which she is screaming an insincere message about feminine disempowerment.
But she is lying. And she knows it. She is exploiting the left’s triggers, which have been embedded in the lizard part of their brains. You know these tropes because you have seen them created over the last 50 years, a parallel white power structure started by the likes of Lyndon B. Johnson slowly stitching the demise of the very groups it alleges to empower into the fabric of our culture. Racism. Sexism. Homophobia. Nativism. Fascism. Nationalism.
These are all levers in a cultural Frankenstein built to go on the attack anytime the good doctor needs to beat everyday brutish Americans into submission. Liz is trying to take control of the beast with her stunt in the middle of the night. Her slight of hand is that SHE alone was silenced, while her male Democratic counterparts, no doubt complicit in the planning and execution, got to read the CSK letter without censure. Only it’s a goddamn lie.
Here’s what really happened: In her 50 minute speech, Warren invoked every one of the levers inside the Frankensteinian left. She accused the Senator of seeking to harm every single identity group or special interest group under the tent of the Democratic Party. She attempted to loop the noose of racism around Senator Sessions neck. Liz attempted to read the whole letter, and a nasty quote by Ted Kennedy, and then extrapolated this to encompass alleged Muslim-hating. It is for the whole of this 50 minute speech that she was censured. Her male colleagues later just read parts of the letter, and they deliberately avoided the most egregious parts in order to avoid censure. This was known and reported in the Washington Post at the time. Here’s a screen shot, offered with the link, because WaPo will likely edit this article without noting it if this becomes common knowledge.
Instead of telling the full story, the media has chosen to soundbite McConnell’s response and report on a trending hashtag, #LetLizSpeak. They have conveniently reported that male Democrats were allowed to read parts of the CSK letter with the deliberate intention of making it appear that only Liz Warren was silenced, thus sparking further unwarranted outrage. That was Monday. On Friday night, this happened:
How much do you want to bet we get a whole weekend of protests that start with this letter being read and end with innocent people being assaulted. As if Coretta Scott King would ever endorse such a thing.
This is the game they are playing. It’s bizarro-world on meth. Are you going to let them get away with it?
