    What is Elizabeth Warren’s press secretary hiding?

    What is Elizabeth Warren’s press secretary hiding?

    Alethea Harney, Elizabeth Warren’s press secretary, is the one feeding my name to Boston media as a “right wing extremist.”

    Yet Harney apparently is not proud of her personal Twitter history.  As reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Harney has turned her Twitter history private, trying to avoid scrutiny:

    Harney’s personal Twitter account, @BostonAlethea, is now protected, and her tweets are only available to confirmed followers.

    Before it was locked, Harney’s personal Twitter page included frequent references to “Blasians” (“Black Asians”), racially charged taunts directed toward Mitt Romney (whom she referred to as “Romneezy”), shout-outs to her “Saudi sisters” and her “multiracial peeps,” and observations about people who “look like they could be Indian.”

    Harney has also mocked white Iowa farmers in interviews, saying, “A lot of them have never seen anyone like me.”

    On her Twitter profile, the Warren spokeswoman refers to herself as “The official voice of Blasians in Boston.”

    On July 5, 2011, Harney replied to a friend’s Tweet announcing that “4 percent” of the guests at a wedding were Indian. Harney wrote, “does that tally include people who look like they could be Indian?” followed by a winking-face symbol….

    Harney also repeatedly referred to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney as “Romneezy” or “Rneezy” in response to a Politico analysis on his appeal to African-American voters.

    On January 5, 2012, Harney wrote, “Romneezy likes it CRISPY GOOD and LOVES immigrants. Sounds pretty Blasian to me.”

    The tweets mentioned in The Beacon article sound more stupid than nasty, but the question is, why is Harney hiding the history?

    And what else is out there that she has tweeted that she doesn’t want known because it might be an embarrassment to her boss?

    Let me guess, Harney’s response will be, “I joined the Warren campaign because the middle class is getting hammered, and you may want to talk about my embarrassing tweets, but I’m going to talk about the middle class getting hammered.”

    Hey… it’s Lizzy Warren’s birthday.
    Go here to sign a birthday card for her!
    Shouldn’t we all help her celebrate ???

      Elizabeth Warren has been one of the greatest and most passionate abusers of minority privilege in recent years.

      She’s been working hard out on the campaign trail, traveling all across Massachusetts trying to avoid the Cherokees that she abused, so I took a moment to do something special to thank her for her uncaring.

      Hopefully next year we’ll celebrate the birthday of #OccupyElizabethWarren at the Massachusetts state unemployment offices!

      How do I personalize my signature for her card? I’d like to wish her a birthday greeting in her original Cherokee tongue (which is in her case, I suspect, forked). Alas, I think it’s just a way to gather emails for future fund-raising pleas.

    Low Budget…

    Looks to me that the DNC is fiscal panic mode: firewalling Preezy takes precedence over everything else including #CheekBones Lizzy’s campaign and Wisconsin low budget failed recalled.

    tisk tisk tisk what is to become of the liberal march for justice?

    The melting pot sure is self-conscious. Narcissistic, even.

    Sorry, Blasian. You’re no more human than anyone else.

    You’ve got 23 pairs of chromosomes, just like the rest of us.

    Well, except for Professor Jacobson. He’s got an extra copy of chromosome 6, where the right-wing extremist gene, according to family lore, is said to be located.

    LukeHandCool (who, as a stickler for decorum, won’t bring up the murky lore about the Professor’s rumored XX male syndrome disorder).

    You know, when you take a closer look, the Professor has high cheek bones. Hmmmm.
