Anyone who saw Sen. Elizabeth Warren screaming in front of the U.S. Supreme Court a few days ago saw possibly the most hateful, angry woman I have ever seen.
I think probably the only ones who were favorably impressed by her bizarre rage had to be pro-abortion fanatics.
The definition for bizarre is “markedly unusual in appearance, style, or general character and often involving incongruous or unexpected elements; outrageously or whimsically strange; odd.”
Sen. Warren’s dancing, waving her arms, ranting, raving, certainly fit the definition of bizarre and then some. It actually showed signs of mental illness.
Even those who favor abortion should have been embarrassed by such a childish display of anger.
Sen. Warren, of course, was the former Harvard Law School professor who was hired because she claimed to be an American Indian and Harvard was desperately trying to fill some sort of politically correct quota.
As it later turned out, Sen. Warren was less than one percent Indian. If a conservative had falsified an application for such an important position in this way, he or she would have been fired.
However, there is one standard for liberals on college and university campuses and another very difficult, even unfair one for conservatives.
Leading conservatives, even those with very strong academic credentials, are almost never invited to give commencement speeches at graduation ceremonies.
And if a conservative is invited to speak, the brainwashed left-wing students will usually lead angry protests and then turn their backs to the speaker or walk out entirely.
And the protests occur not just at graduation time. If campus young Republicans or young conservatives bring a conservative speaker in, the speaker usually has to have extra police protection.
Just a little over a month ago, former Congressman Allen West, a decorated career Army officer, had to have a police escort to get away from an angry left-wing mob at the University of Buffalo.
Sen. Warren and her angry supporters were protesting a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito overturning the ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Roe vs. Wade which legalized abortion in this country.
This draft, which is not yet the final opinion of the Court, did not ban even a single abortion. It simply said the law on abortions should be determined by the elected representatives of the people on a state-by-state basis.
However, those on the left have shown in recent weeks that they are not really in favor of democracy and favor free speech, only for themselves.
Their shouts of “my body, my choice,” ring very hollow since these are mostly coming from the same people who shut down schools and small businesses while loudly demanding that everyone be vaccinated against Covid-19.
The liberal establishment went so far on Covid vaccines that many people who refused them lost their jobs and some doctors who questioned the vaccine lost some of their credentials.
Many Democrats in Congress publicly protested on the floor of the House the results of the 2016 presidential elections.
When Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri, both with Ivy League law degrees, did the same thing in 2020, 6000 law professors and students demanded they be disbarred.
Those on the left seem to think they are so brilliant; they can run your life and spend your money better than you can. They can’t stand to be questioned, much less opposed, on anything.
The brilliant late columnist, Charles Krauthammer, wrote in 2018: “To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.”
