Communist Rag Gushes Over Elizabeth Warren
Peoples World – the news outlet of the Communist Party USA – can’t say enough good things about Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
In an article about a campaign appearance for a Senate candidate in West Virginia, People’s World author John Case wrote:
Senator Warren characterizes what others call her rising “rock star” public persona as more like a lightening bolt from another world on an unsuspecting, plain spoken, ordinary American of modest means who fate placed in a fortuitous position to exercise true citizenship. Duty called her to raise her voice against the massive financial rip offs of recent decades. As an economics professor at Harvard specializing in bankruptcies, she was in a unique, expert position to play a key role in the financial reforms that eventually passed Congress after the 2008 crisis.
The reason why Elizabeth Warren is a rock star, however, is much more than a matter of expertise in finance. It’s because of her demonstrated integrity under fire; it’s because of her refusal to play the “Washington insiders” game where you have access to powerful people as long as you don’t criticize other insiders.
Instead, she kept telling the truth about the financial crisis and its causes. And she did so without being mean-spirited in the face of both administration blandishments and vicious smear tactics by Republican spitball artists. She was doing it again in big red, white and blue colors yesterday. She conveys a trust and connection with ordinary people that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, will have difficulty matching.
It’s a good indication of just how far-left Warren is and the types of policies she’d implement if she was president.
