I ask this because back at the beginning of October Ms. Warren seemed to be very much in favor of the entire Occupy Wall Street ‘thing.’ As the Boston Globe noted: “All of the candidates expressed support for the controversial protesters who are part of the “Occupy Boston” movement downtown.”
The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon by Occupy Boston protesters.
The woman was walking to the train and said protesters spit on her twice, called her foul names and even threw a water bottle at her.
The article notes that “the Coast Guard is warning all staff working on Atlantic Avenue to avoid those protesters while in uniform.” It’s a hell of a thing when you can’t walk the streets of an American city while wearing an uniform and not get harassed by a bunch of ignorant, low-rent mouth-breathers whose courage is directly proportional to their numbers, but I guess that this is the sort of thing that we have to expect from that sort. Particularly since obviously there’s not a chance at all that the Boston city government will do anything about the situation.
But it’d be interesting to see whether Elizabeth Warren – who is running for the Democratic nomination for Massachusetts Senate – pushes back on this calculated insult to our troops by Occupy Boston. Assuming that she knows about it. Assuming that she understands why it was bad. Assuming that she even really cares, either way. Hard to tell: after all, it was just a member of the military, right? And a female one, too. That’d make the Coast Guard member a class and gender traitor, in certain Academic Left eyes…
