Piven pal Barbara Ehrenreich gave a speech a The Left Forum – the same Left Forum where Steve Lerner described how to commit economic terrorism – where she called Americans wusses for not violently rioting. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.
You can watch the video from The Blaze below:
Ehrenreich said, “Until about a month ago, a lot of us on the American left spent our time asking what is the matter with America? What in particular, why in particular are Americans such WUSSES. The Greeks would threaten job loss and cuts and but millions of Americans had lost their 401(K) plans, their jobs, even their homes and you know, they pretty much rolled over.”
The radio guys didn’t quite understand what she wanted Americans to do. Did she want them to go out and throw Molotov cocktails and kill pregnant woman, like what happened in Greece?
“Never WUSSY thing to kill a pregnant woman,” Stu said sarcastically.
“It might wind up there, but I start by overturning police vehicle,” Pat joked.
“It's like the chant, show me what democracy looks like? Burning pregnant women to death is what democracy looks like,” Stu said of one of the left’s favorite rallying cries.
“When British and French students were told that their tuition was going to go up and not like 62‑year‑olds, they took to the streets,” she continued.
“They tried to kill the royal family and they tried to pull them from the car and who knows what would have happened,” Pat reminded the audience.
And why aren’t liberals out protesting the rising cost of education? “It's ridiculous. You answered your question, of course, as you said, which is why aren't they talking about it, because that's where the liberals are. Because that's where all the liberals are,” Stu said, noting that most liberals are in the same universities where costs are rising.
“It's Cloward and Piven, they will create the problem and offer the solution,” Glenn said.
