( Warren 2020! ) Peter Thiel says Elizabeth Warren is 'dangerous;' Warren responds: 'Good'



Senator Elizabeth Warren doesn’t seem too unhappy about being labeled “dangerous” by investor Peter Thiel .

Thiel, who co-founded PayPal, Palantir and Founders Fund, made the comments in an interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, where he described most of the Democratic presidential field as “equally unimpressive” and called Warren “the dangerous one.”

“I’m most scared by Elizabeth Warren,” he said. “I think she’s the one who’s actually talking about the economy, which is the only thing — the thing that I think matters by far the most.”

Warren tweeted a link to a Bloomberg story about Thiel’s remarks with a succinct response of her own: “Good.”

1. How About That?!

 

An honest ( :/ ) republican who, perhaps inadvertently, told the truth we all already know -- things like abortion and Second Amendment rights are all camouflage. When all is said and done, all republicans care about is one thing -- the almighty buck to whom they pledge their fealty.

It's all about money to them -- minimal taxation and minimal (or no) safety net.

And that's bullshit, and it's the reason I want Elizabeth Warren to be our next president. Other than Bernie Sanders, Warren is the only candidate who will meet this bullshit head on and hit the republicans where they live. And level the playing field AND SHARE THE WEALTH. THAT is what Thiel and republicans in general fear the most -- losing the ability to buy car elevators while the indigent underclasses (and the middle class, for that matter) beg for crumbs.

I'm sick of this crap! And, while I'd vote for Biden (or whoever our nominee is), the fact is that neither he nor they (with the exception of Bernie) is gonna take it to the republicans and the current economic system in a meaningful way that benefits the poor and the middle class at the expense of the wealthy and well heeled.

2. For decades the Republican Party has had one priority, greed.

 

They get suckers to vote for them because they appeal to their "christian" values. Which essentially means, their bigotry.

6. That scary alliance contains factions passionate about

 

eliminating obstructions to growing the wealth and power of our new ultrawealthy classes, passionate about white supremacy and nationalism, passionate about destroying liberalism and replacing it with with fascistic autocracy, and passionate about establishing a Christian nation. There's a great deal of overlap among these groups that contain the worst of us, but not entirely.

4. Warren is a viable threat to greedy wealthy billionaires like Thiel

 

Unlike Warren Buffett, Thiel possesses zero social conscience.

My dream ticket remains Biden/Warren for good reason.

5. Peter Thiel is a deeply red individual

 

His opinions through the years have grown more racist and mysogenistic. He is a very shallow person who made a lot of money years ago. In a battle of wits with Sen. Warren, he has lost.

7. Uber wealth is a mental illness.

 

No human being needs more than a few million dollars to live a luxurious life. When wealth goes well above that level, it's a sign of mental illness. Hoarding money so that you can rule over everyone.
