Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has said she hasn’t decided if she will run for president in 2020, but she just gave a major foreign policy speech, which is something people who are running for president do. Yes, she is definitely running.
The speech, which was characterized by Bloomberg as “half” a foreign policy, contained a little gem that every mainstream media outlet ignored. Warren blamed President Donald Trump for inspiring domestic terrorism that occurred before he took office and then blamed several attacks committed by radicalized Muslims on white nationalists.
Warren’s foreign policy is to lie about the Islamic terrorism threat in order to accuse Trump of racism. Presumably, that is the half that Bloomberg felt she got right.
Last Thursday, Warren gave a foreign policy speech at American University. It was filled with her usual attacks on the big banks and the wealthy, other than herself of course. She included plenty of anti-Trump sentiment.
“Let’s start with a serious problem: Around the world, democracy is under assault. Authoritarian governments are gaining power. Right-wing demagogues are gaining strength. Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled and begun to reverse. Inequality is rapidly growing, transforming rule by-the-people into rule by-wealthy-elites,” said Warren.
CNN puts Elizabeth Warrens net worth at around $10 million. She is a US Senator. That qualifies as “rule by-wealthy-elites,” but she probably meant those other wealthy elites, not herself.
“While it is easy to blame President Trump for our problems, the truth is that our challenges began long before him,” Warren said.
Proving how lazy she is, she took the easy route and blamed President Trump for the things she thinks are our problems. She obliquely accused him of colluding with the Russians to steal the 2016 presidential election.
“The 2016 election provided a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and fight for our democracy every single day. That starts with protecting our elections and democratic processes and making it clear that there will be severe consequences for those – foreign or domestic – who meddle, hack, or undermine them. It means ensuring a meaningful opportunity for every American citizen to vote. And it means fighting for equal justice and protection under the law for all,” said Warren.
After saying Trump “cozies up to white nationalists,” Warren then unleashed this a whopper of a lie.
“It also requires us to speak out against hateful rhetoric that fuels domestic terrorism of all kinds, whether in San Bernardino or Charleston, Orlando or Charlottesville, Fort Hood or Pittsburgh. We must speak plainly about all of these incidents. Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values. It is a threat to American safety and security, and we must not tolerate it in the United States of America,” Warren said.
It’s clear that Warren is blaming Trump’s “hateful rhetoric” for inspiring domestic terrorism. She then uses the examples of San Bernardino, Orlando, and Fort Hood, which were terrorist attacks committed by Muslim extremists while Barack Hussien Obama was president.
Just because a Muslim commits a crime doesn’t mean that it was inspired by religious extremism, but in these cases they definitely were. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009 because he didn’t think “Muslims should be in the US Military.”
In 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik talked about jihad and professed their allegiance to radical Muslim terrorist group ISIS before killing 14 in San Bernardino, California. In 2016, Omar Mateen was angry at the US for bombing ISIS before he killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub.
All of these attacks were committed by Muslims with radical Islamic ideology and anti-US hatred. They also happened when Obama was president, but for some reason, Warren didn’t suggest his rhetoric was to blame. To say that Trump inspired these attacks is the lie of the century. Where are all the liberal media fact-checkers on this?
Liberals have accused President Trump of racism because of his true statements that some illegal immigrants commit crimes and California Rep. Maxine Waters has a low IQ. Elizabeth Warren upped the ante by attributing his “racism” to radical Islamic terrorist attacks that occurred before he took office.
That this comes from a woman who pretended to be Native American in order to advance her academic career makes this lie the mother of all hypocrisies, but it does look pretty good on the resumé of someone seeking the Democratic Party nomination in 2020.
