Does Scott Brown Agree With Tea Partier That Elizabeth Warren Is a “Socialist Whore”?

This episode is incredibly telling, both about Elizabeth Warren’s unflappability and about Scott Brown’s apparent supporters’ willingness to proverbially throw rocks.

Elizabeth Warren holds a volunteer organizing event in Brockton and packs the room, like she did in Framingham earlier in her tour.  She gets to the podium, and, before she can launch into her stump speech, a Teabagger interrupts the whole event to ask her about the Occupy Wall Street movement.  The crowd, annoyed that someone would rudely interrupt Warren’s comments, groans and wants the guy to shut up.  But Warren quiets the crowd and urges them to let the Teabagger speak:

The crowd tried to shout the man down, but Warren told her supporters to let him speak. “No, no, it’s alright. Let me say two things,” she said. “I’m very sorry that you’ve been out of work. I’m also very sorry that the recent jobs bill that would’ve brought 22,000 jobs to Massachusetts did not pass in the Senate.”

So Warren is not just unflappable but also quite magnanimous to someone who very rudely tries to hijack the proceedings.

But that’s not where the story ends.  The Teabagger decides to up the rhetorical ante with some well-thought-out and mature comments that some RMGers would probably applaud:

“Well, if you’re the intellectual creator of that so-called party,” he said, “you’re a socialist whore. I don’t want anything to do with you.” The crowd shouted him down as he added that Warren’s “boss,” presumably referring to the president, was “foreign-born.” He then attempted to storm out through a side door. Finding it locked, he retreated out the back of the VFW hall instead.

Here’s the video:



So that’s the level of rhetoric of Tea Party-sympathetic conservatives and – ostensibly – Scott Brown supporters or at least Warren opponents.  “Socialist whore.”  And that’s not a far cry from language users here on Red Mass Group have routinely used to describe Warren already.  (Maybe the heckler happens to also be a Red Mass Group denizen.)  I wonder if Scott Brown and the rest of Team Plagiarist (including Mr. CrazyKhazei and Mr. QueenElizabethWarren) would agree with that designation of Warren as a “socialist whore”.

In a final display of grace and unflappability, before proceeding with her planned stump speech comments, she noted:

Warren took the challenge in stride. “So, we are here to do work, and I think we have a reminder that we have a lot of work to do,” she said as the heckler struggled with the door.

(I will admit that I found it pretty hilarious that the immature Teabagger couldn’t work the doors.)

Perhaps this is what the Massachusetts Republican Party so desperately and flailingly meant by “throwing rocks.”
