The world’s most annoying Senator, Elizabeth Warren, has been making headlines recently. Why? Because the woman has been so vile that the Senate ended up voting to shut her up.
She violated Senate rules prohibiting impugning another senator when she delivered a lengthy speech against the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for the position of Attorney General. The controversy allegedly stemmed from her remarks in reference to a 1986 letter written by Coretta Scott King (Martin Luther King Jr’s late wife), when the chamber was debating whether to confirm Sessions to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.
Warren said afterward that “This is about Coretta Scott King’s letter and that’s all this is about. She wrote a powerful letter about an important moment in history that directly involved Jeff Sessions and is directly relevant to the question of whether Jeff Sessions ought to be the attorney general of the United States — and Mitch McConnell didn’t want me to read that letter.”
Oh – and she LIED. Three other senators (one of them being Bernie Sanders) read the aforementioned letter AFTER Warren was silenced, and McConnell didn’t penalize them. Evidence later turned up that Scott King had changed her opinion of Sessions later in life, and Aldeva King (MLK jr’s niece) slammed Warren for race baiting.
Yet she’s still getting air time claiming that she was “silenced.” I guess she’s trying to plan her 2020 Presidential campaign and try to create an image of people that Republicans feel the need to silence (when in reality, it was just because she’s a nasty woman).
The woman has done enough to embarrass herself on television, but the media won’t show Marco Rubio’s latest smack-down of her, so we will. As the Conservative Review reported:
Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla. warned that tolerating Warren’s brand of slanderous rhetoric on the floor of the U.S. Senate undermines the institution and weakens our republic.
“I want people to think about our politics here today in America,” Rubio exhorted his colleagues. “Because I’m telling you guys, I don’t know of a single nation in the history of the world that’s been able to solve its problems when half the people in the country absolutely hate the other half of people in that country.”
“This is not a partisan issue, it really is not,” Rubio said. “Turn on the news and watch these parliaments around the world where people throw chairs at each other, and punches. And ask yourself ‘how does that make you feel about those countries?’ Doesn’t give you a lot of confidence about those countries.”
Rubio continued, saying the nation and the U.S. Senate is “flirting” with becoming the sort of place where reasonable disagreement and debate is dead.
Well said. Share this EVERYWHERE – the media won’t!
