BRAVO!: Harvard Student Takes on Barney Frank, Endures Dumb Insults

By Debbie Schlussel
Not all of my fellow co-religionists are liberals. Check out the obviously Jewish (note the yarmulke/Jewish skullcap) Harvard student who takes on Barney Frank at his speech (and identifies himself as a conservative). He endures a lot of typical Barney Frank blowhardism and abuse. I give this kid a lot of credit. He acted with class, which we can’t say about the guy at the podium.
Another student to Frank: Don’t blame him (the student). Just answer the question!
Apparently, there’s been a slight improvement since John LeBoutillier wrote the book, “Harvard Hates America.” Now, it’s just most of it.

Barney Frank: “I think labels are important.”
He said it.

Barney Frank should be in handcuffs for Grand Theft not at the Kennedy School of future Government crooks speaking to students.
I cannot believe that this man is still free after stealing billions from the American people then has the gall to stand in front of the public acting like he has done nothing wrong.
I blame the Republican Party for not filing charges against him for allowing Franklin Raines to walk away from a Government Job with millions stolen from Fannie Mae.
The student that took him on has my thanks for at least attempting to get him to respond to a simple question.

Very rude, very defensive!
Watch his right hand. He’s nervously twitching his fingers almost nonstop.

Frank has been doing damage control for months now, consisting of blaming conservatives, long explanations to change the subject and confuse his audience and rotating between attacking others and playing the victim. He’s been helped by a friendly media which will ask a few questions, but never the real tough ones, and without the aggressive follow-up.
Notice how all the elite liberal adults had a nice chuckle from Barney’s condescending comments aimed at the kid. If he had been a member of some other minority group, Barney would have been just as defensive, but he would have held back on the nastiness and the audience would have been less likely to laugh along.

Debbie, the questioner was poised, but he did screw up mixing criticism of the bailout and the preceding crisis. And he had no answer for what Frank could have done to prevent the crisis. He was also way too polite, which allowed Frank to plow over him. Right wing kids at Harvard seem to have all the spirit of a beaten hostage. The girl who piped up for him was good looking, though. I’d like to facebook her.

I cannot stand to listen to even 5 minutes of his slurring, belligerent, egotistical spewing. He is a disgrace to this country and the position of Senator of the United States. What a pig!!!

I gotta hand it to that student for kind of sort of telling that global freaking maggot (I could use the shortened version, but won’t) where he can stick his head. Fwank, Dodd (my “senator”) and even some Republicans, all controlled by global banks and Bilderberg are responsible. If they will not listen to reason however, then perhaps going 2nd amendment may be the only way. Then again, that’s what these globalists and their FEMA camps, which Faux News shill Glenn Beck, The Schmeck, has debunked with help from Popular Mechanics, want.

Kudos to the kid !!! It takes guts to stand up in
a crowd of hostile Liberals and stay polite while being jeered by moronic robots. I am doubly encouraged by the fact that he is Jewish, in a
Liberal University, considering how most U.S.
Jews have rolled over for the Democrats for
years. Very gutsy kid !

The student should have been loaded for bear and wasn’t. Well he should have mentioned why Frank didn’t go after reforming Freddie and Fannie. His protection of rotten Freddie and Fannie was a complement to the protection Republicans were giving rotten financial institutions and private banks. McCain called on reforming them all. To his credit Frank voted against the Glass-Steegal repeal which set off this financial destruction in 1999. Glass-Steegal was necessary banking regulation during Great Depression. However Charlie Summer, Obama’s czar on the economy was Clinton Treasury Secretary and he was the one who made sure Glas-Steegal was repealed. Sure the media wont report that Obama’s point man was the father of this repeal.
As for Frank, I wish there were Republicans who can defend their positions when questioned. Though it was a college kid. The Republican leadership is non-existent.

That young student was great, and yes gutsy. He had phony faggot Barney Frank stuttering, and stammering in his own back yard.
And yes folks, undeniable facts show that, Barney Faggot was a piece of the puzzle, and played a role in the financial melt down.
