Four Extreme Elizabeth Warren Views Jason Kander Now Owns
Jason Kander continues to act more like a someone angling for a job at a liberal think tank than campaigning to represent the people of Missouri in the U.S. Senate.
Kander’s latest D.C. hack move is to tout an endorsement from radical Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren in fundraising appeals undoubtedly aimed at raking in campaign cash from liberal elites on the coasts.
But Warren’s endorsement will likely prove a double-edged sword for Kander as he struggles to square Warren’s left-wing agenda with Missouri voters. Here are four of Warren’s most extreme statements that Kander will have to explain:
1. Warren’s claim to be the intellectual founder of the radical Occupy Wall Street protest movement:
So what does she think about the Occupy Wall Street protests that are roiling the country?
“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she says. “I support what they do.”
2. Warren’s statement that nobody in America can take credit for their own success:
…Warren rebuts the GOP-touted notion that raising taxes on the wealthy amounts to “class warfare,” contending that “there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.”
Warren rejects the concept that it is possible for Americans to become wealthy in isolation.
3. The time Warren cited throwing rocks at people she disagrees with as one of her top three accomplishments:
4. Warren’s threat to leave “blood and teeth on the floor” to protect her pet regulatory agency:
Kander’s embrace of the extreme Warren Wing of the Democratic Party may get him plaudits within the Beltway, but is likely to raise serious questions the Missourians who he needs to actually, you know, vote for him.
