"Sacaja-Whiner": Elizabeth Warren and the Oppression Olympics
Townhall.com ^ | May 2, 2012 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 05/02/2012 3:25:56 AM PDT by Kaslin

Elizabeth Warren is the Harvard law professor running for Senate in Massachusetts as a Democratic populist-progressive champion. But don't call her "Elizabeth Warren." Call her "Pinocchio-hontas," "Chief Full-of-Lies," "Running Joke" or "Sacaja-whiner."

Warren has claimed questionable Native American minority status for years to reap career "diversity" benefits. Now, Cherokee leaders, campaign rival GOP Sen. Scott Brown and an army of Twitter detractors have called her out for gaming the racial-preference system. Live by identity politics, die by identity politics.

The Boston Herald reported last Friday that Harvard administrators "prominently touted Warren's Native American background ... in an effort to bolster their diversity hiring record in the '90s as the school came under heavy fire for a faculty that was then predominantly white and male." When asked for proof of her tribal heritage, Warren's campaign first denied that she had ever bragged about it. But from 1986 to 1995, Warren listed herself as a minority professor in a professional law school directory.

While the Democrat's team scrounged for evidence over the weekend, Warren stalled for time by asserting that she didn't need to provide documentation because family "lore" backed her up. Someone told her a story, you see, and magically conferred native status upon her. Through narrative, all things are possible! (Notorious "fake Indian" Ward Churchill is wondering why he didn't think of this alibi first before the University of Colorado at Boulder fired him for academic fraud.)

On Tuesday, Warren finally discovered a great-great-great-grandmother supposedly "certified as Cherokee" and a random cousin somehow involved with a museum that preserves Native American art. There's also a great-great-grandfather somewhere in Warren's dusty genealogical records who spent time on a Cherokee reservation. Because walking a mile in someone else's moccasins is now just as good as being born in them.

Native American officials aren't buying Warren's 1/10,000th Cherokee claim. Suzan Shown Harjo, a former executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, told the Herald: "If you believe you are these things then that's fine and dandy, but that doesn't give you the right to claim yourself as Native American."

When Brown raised the issue, Warren and her progressive strategists traded in the candidate's Native American blanket for a War on Women victim's mask -- because asking a privileged Harvard prof to verify her minority claims is sexist, of course.

"If Scott Brown has questions about Elizabeth Warren's well-known qualifications," her campaign manager railed, "he ought to ask them directly instead of hiding behind the nasty insinuations of his campaign and trying to score political points. Once again, the qualifications and ability of a woman are being called into question by Scott Brown, who did the same thing with the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. It's outrageous."

Once again, the left's incurable love affair with oppression chic is on naked display. It's an Olympic competition of the haves to show their have-not cred. Just a few weeks ago, it was the White House tokenizing Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor -- the "wise Latina" -- as "disabled" in an official graph promoting the administration's minority hiring practices. What's her disability? She has diabetes. No, it's not debilitating, nor does it fall anywhere near the definition of disability under federal law.

But like their friend Elizabeth Warren, the Ivy League social engineers at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. just couldn't help embellishing their "diversity" record to score political correctness points. Birds of a manufactured feather flock together.

Dear writer, let's be accurate. It very well can be debilitating and even fatal if not controlled.And in some individuals defies control.

The White Tepee will be shortly be explaining to the Federally recognized tribes and Native American Organizations that they had better wake up and support the regime candidate or they might find the flow of Federal funds could be interrupted.

Scalped may be in her electoral future if not literal. Why are Leftist ‘Elite’ the biggest poseurs, liars and cheats?
Michelle has the right idea in skewering tools like Warren.
Howie Carr @ the Boston Herald is great on skewering the MassHoles like Warren and Juan Claude Kerry, “We all know about “undocumented workers.” Now we have Elizabeth Warren, the undocumented Indian”...baa, baa.

I have missed my golden opportunity! My mom visits the Seminole reservation quite often(don’t ask how often) to play the slots. I could have gained in my business as a minority “Indian” status. Who knew?

Right. But Ms Malkin did not add "if not controlled." Be assured I am an admirer of Michelle.

1/10,000 or yesterday’s claim of 1/32. Either way, I don’t think that is a large enough portion of Indian blood to claim a free fishing license.

Fabulous news. I am now proclaimed a poor little disabled diabetic. Can I also claim quad bypass as well?

Also we own 50 acres in southern Utah where tribes have gathered for thousands of years to hunt and fish and harvest their corn. On occasion we discover artifacts from the ancient Anasazi culture. I hereby state that this must certainly qualify me for something as I am sitting here this very moment on sacred hunting grounds.

Well, knock me over with an Eagle feather I never knew it was "well-known" - no one watching this campaign did until the Boston Herald outed her.

Just like asking another Harvard Law grad to verify his claim of eligibility to the office of the Presidency is racist. Of course.

What is it with Harvard?

Ummm...I thought the Cherokee kept tribal registries.

I know the Eastern Band does...your ancestors are either on it or they are not. Supposedly, proving a claim to tribal membership is a pretty intense deal.

Elevated blood pressure can be fatal if not controlled, but that doesn’t qualify for “disabled”, either.

So, when they called her out for being a “faux squaw”, she is claiming she is being suppressed because “Republicans hate women”.

This sounds like a great opportunity to ask if she has “always been a woman”, or if she used to be a “male Boston cab driver, with a law degree from the International School of Law, Medicine, and Offshore Banking of Aruba.”

I am dead set against thievin’ redskins runnin’ for political office. Murderin’ lactose-intolerant savages like Elizabeth Warren have no place offn the reservation. And keep’em away from the whiskey ... not to mention the white women.

The only exception I would make is Jim Thorpe. Is he available?

Yo, hold on to it a second, here. Liz claims Cherokee blood, eh? Well them Cherokees held many black slaves, you know? Could that cost her the all-important black vote?

Although, come to think of it the Obama family had a history of being involved on the retail end of the "Black Ivory" trade between the Arab World and East Africa, so maybe it doesn't matter all that much.

One of my closest friends has to work with an Indian tribe because her job is a 501 C 3 and sometimes that means you have to cover Indian issues. This is especially true in regional theatre. They have made her life hell with their abrasive, nit-picky political correctness and constant in-fighting. Why Ward Churchill was kicked out of “his” tribe is strange - considering a lot of them are just like him.

I know I’m off the reservation with this and calmly await being scalped!!!

My Dear Miss Marmelstein,
Please do not abuse the tremendous respect I have for you by posting politically incorrect material to my attention.

I has seen the light. Amerindians, Native Americans, North American Aborigines, including the Inuit, are clearly Nature's Noblemen. They can do no wrong.

I just found out that MY great-grandmother was part Passamaquoddy and am applying for my cut of the $450 Million settlement reached because their (I mean OUR) treaty was broken by evil white people such as yourself.

If your Piscataway DNA Test Comes Out Positive, I am taking your post as a proposal!

I am calling you oooo oooo.

OTOH, if it comes out Neg, we may have to raid your farm and burn it to the ground. It's what we Indians do, you know.
