American Indians will be silent no more.
They’re calling out Elizabeth Warren and her preposterous claim that she’s “Native American.”
The uber-liberal Massachusetts senator claims she’s an Indian – 1/32 Cherokee to be exact. She’s never provided any documentation or proof of that ancestry. She’s not a member of any band of Cherokee, nor could she be.
Still, she’s used the nonsense claim to her political and professional advantage.
In the 1990s, while Warren was teaching at Harvard, she was granted tenure partly because of her claim of “Indian roots” and the college’s effort to boost their diversity hiring record.
And between 1985 and 1996, she listed herself as a “minority” in a directory of law professors. Asked about this, Warren said she listed herself as a minority because she wanted to connect with “people for whom native American is part of their heritage and part of their hearts.”
Even when given a chance to admit that she’s lying, she gives these bizarre, rambling – and offensive – responses, like this one recently where she talked about “high cheekbones.”
“I have lived in a family that has talked about Native America, talked about tribes, since I’ve been a little girl,” she said. “I still have a picture on my mantle at home, and it’s a picture of my mother’s dad, a picture of my grandfather, and my Aunt Bee has walked by that picture at least a 1000 times, remarked that her father, my Pappa, had high cheekbones, like all of the Indians do, because that’s how she saw it, and your mother got those same great cheekbones, and I didn’t. And she though this was the bad deal she had gotten in life. Being Native American has been a part of my story, I guess since the day I was born, I don’t know any other way to describe it.”
Well, the Cherokee Indian tribe has had enough.
In a video – released by the Massachusetts Republican Party – real Cherokees speak out about Warren’s idiotic claim that she’s Indian.
It’s a scathing indictment against the woman that Donald Trump and others call “Fauxcahontas” or “Lieawatha.”
Here’s the video:
On the off chance that Hillary picks Warren as her running mate, expect to hear a lot more about this. Here’s a great meme running around the Internet too.
