(Tea Party PAC) – George R.R. Martin once said, “Politicians were mostly people who’d had too little morals and ethics to stay lawyers.” Interestingly, Elizabeth Warren has a law degree, yet has chosen the life of politics. That being said, Fauxcahontas is at it again, rewriting her very own history for the benefit of whomever she is pandering to at the moment.
A school choice supporter called out Warren for being anti-school choice when she herself had sent her son to private school.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is facing backlash for telling a school choice supporter that her children went to public schools, despite the fact that her son attended a private school, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Warren released her education plan in October, which called to eliminate school vouchers, tuition tax credits, and federally funded expansions of charter schools, as Breitbart News reported.
“We should stop the diversion of public dollars from traditional public schools through vouchers or tuition tax credits – which are vouchers by another name,” Warren wrote.
“We should fight back against the privatization, corporatization, and profiteering in our nation’s schools,” she continued.
A school choice activist confronted Warren at a campaign event in Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday, the same activist who reportedly led the protest against the presidential candidate during her speech at Clark-Atlanta University the same day.
“We are going to have the same choice that you had for your kids because I read that your children went to private schools,” Sarah Carpenter, the pro-school choice activist, told Warren.
“My children went to public schools,” Warren declared, leaving out the little detail that her son did, in fact, attend private school:
Holy shit. I have Warren on video lying about where she sent her kids to school.

As the Free Beacon reports, her son Alex attended a private school:
A school yearbook obtained by the Washington Free Beacon indicates, however, that Warren’s son, Alex Warren, attended the Kirby Hall School for at least the 1986-1987 school year, Warren’s final year as a professor at the University of Texas at Austin. The college preparatory school is known for its “academically advanced curriculum” and offers small class sizes for students in grades K-12. The yearbook indicates that Alex Warren attended as a fifth grader.
“Elizabeth’s daughter went to public school. Her son went to public school until 5th grade,” Kristen Orthman, Warren’s communication director, told Free Beacon and Fox News.
Orthman went on to say, “Elizabeth wants every kid to get a great education regardless of where they live, which is why her plan makes a historic investment in our public schools. Every public school should be a great school. Her plan does not affect funding for existing non-profit charter schools, but she believes we should not put public dollars behind a further expansion of charters until they are subject to the same accountability requirements as public schools.”
In other words, Warren doesn’t want to pump money into schools they can’t impose leftist indoctrination on. If the school cannot be completely controlled by the state, it doesn’t deserve funding; at least from Warren’s perspective. Which is funny, because in 2011 she seemed to sing a different tune.
In an interview with Fox Business in May 2011, she appears to be an enthusiastic supporter of charter schools and school vouchers.
“The point is, we have a private school system now, only the way it’s doled out is instead of paying tuition, you buy a house in a certain zip code and pay taxes and keep everyone locked out who’s not in that zip code. We call those public schools. But look at the financing for them. If every child in the state of Massachusetts — every child in this country — got a ticket, and the ticket was funded by taxpayers, because I believe in public education, but it could be used at any school regardless of what kind of house parents can afford to buy, it would first take the pressure off parents in terms of having to buy those houses, and second would mean that those schools now compete with each other for offering the kind of education that really produces results and parents can buy into and believe in.”
Looks like Warren is just another Democrat shill, willing to sacrifice any real convictions and beliefs for the sake of the greater liberal good, but we already knew that. She makes no real effort to be honest and is constantly kowtowing to whatever activist group yells the loudest. Warren truly has no morals or ethics. She will say literally anything to get elected. No wonder she chose to become a politician over a lawyer.
