Bill Maher to Elizabeth Warren: "They Don't Like You, Pocahontas"

Much to her chagrin, Bill Maher referred to Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" on his show Friday night.

After Warren tried to suggest she does appeal to Trump supporters, Maher responded: "His fans are not with you.”

"Hold on," Warren said.

"Come on," Maher responded, "they don't like you, Pocahontas."

Warren made a face in response and pivoted to explaining her "progressive agenda" that's supposed to appeal to the right.

"When you talk about what's really the basic pieces of a progressive agenda–raise the minimum wage, expand social security, reduce the cost of college so people don't get crushed by student loan debt, more not less regulation of financial institutions … progressive taxation, make those at the top pay their fair share–America, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, vegetarians, Americans by about two-to-one are with us on that. The progressive agenda is America's agenda. We cannot forget that and we cannot apologize."

Let's break this down.

They're for raising the minimum wage, but also in favor of importing unlimited cheap labor to drive down wages. They're also in favor of free-trade and open-borders globalism.

They're for expanding social security, but also for flooding the country with Third World immigrants who pay dramatically less into the system than they get out.

They want to reduce college costs, but they've driven them up like crazy by insisting everyone must go and they've handed out student loans like candy so colleges can charge exorbitantly high prices.

Next she says they're in favor of more regulation of financial institutions. They're already regulated to hell and yet all it's done is insulate them from any accountability. The banks got bailed out in 2008 rather than bankrupted and not one banker went to prison.

Lastly, progressive taxation. We already have progressive taxation, it's not a panacea. Raising taxes 25% on the rich will barely make a dent on the deficit and is not going to make spending levels stabilize.

This is the empty Democratic platform.

That said, the Democrats don't actually plan on influencing the electorate, rather their aim since 1965 has simply been to replace the electorate with foreigners more favorable to their views.
