White and wrong: On the reservation with Elizabeth Warren
Boston Herald ^ | 02 may 2012 | Howie Carr

Posted on 05/02/2012 6:38:26 AM PDT by rellimpank

We all know about “undocumented workers.” Now we have Elizabeth Warren, the undocumented Indian.

Funny thing, I think Ted Williams was one-fourth Mexican. He was white. Johnny Bench is one-eighth Indian. I always think of him as white. And then there’s Pochantas Warren, the blue-eyed, one-32nd Cherokee (or so we’re told) who went from the Southwest Conference to the Ivy League over the course of a decade in which she was claiming to be a “minority professor.”

But once she’d parlayed the racial-spoils racket all the way to a tenured position at Harvard Law, she decided to ... pass, as they used to say in the old South. Once she’d reached the pinnacle of her trade, she ditched the fake-Indian routine. Maybe White Eyes Warren saw the smoke signals and figured out that someone was going to call her out on her ancestry. She was right.

If being 1/32 Indian makes you an official Indian, I suspect we have at least 100 million Indians in our nation. I don’t blame the tribal officials for being irritated by such nonsense.

Call it what it is, it’s racism.

By virtue of their race, some people are entitled to things I can never have, no matter how hard I work, no matter how much I accomplish - by virtue of my humble birth, I will never have the “Equality” given to those who’s ancestry differs from mine.

Does this, in any way, correct the injustices done by white people I have nothing in common with? My ancestors were not in this country at the time. In fact, I can show that my ancesters spent their lives fighting slavery, as Missionaries in Madagascar, risking their lives and the lives of thier families. Is there anything I could have done, but failed to do, to have prevented these injustices performed decades or centuries before my birth?

Yet, I am denied the benefits that are freely given to others, based solely upon the color of my skin.

Anyone notice the American-Indian wannabes usually seem to claim “Cherokee?” What about: Mattaponi, Powhatan, Cree, Arikara, Assiniboine or Hidatsa?

C’mon Elizabeth, get more creative with your wannabe-ness.

Pochantas Warren... lol

Warren talked a good story when she first arrived on the TARP scene. It’s been downhill for her ever since.

Pochantas Warren

Ow! Normally that would leave a mark, but in the final analysis, the MSM will rally around Sacajewarren, just as they rallied around Stolen Valor Blumenthal.

If dems lie, cheat, steal, or even murder, they get a pass. Let's face it - dems have no honor so why would they hold each other accountable when their own hands are dirtied with shame.

Great slaughter article by Howie

Boy did he pick the wrong week to have (needed)elective surgery (out all week to recover). I wish he’d at least call into his own show for an hour segment or two from his house - this story is fire-water!

It was a good read. Affirmative action should be dismantled.

The original title cught my eye over on RealClearPolitics...

“On the Reservation with Pocahontas Warren”...he must have taken some heat on that one and changed it...but it made me laugh out loud and click the link. Howie makes excellent ppoints, all while injecting some humor.

Personally, I think she is done. I hope Massachusetts voters are fed up.

My uncle (a Harvard Engineering grad) would be spinning if he he could see what Harvard has become.

This happened in Australia when they passed certain special rights for Aboriginals. Almost overnight virtually the entire nation claimed to be Aborigines.

Yes, but if she is loud and vocal enough about lining up all the bankers and shooting them, she will still win.

This is, after all, the same state which followed that idiot Pied Piper, Joe Kennedy, to a lake of "free" heating oil from Hugo Chavez.

My great grandmother was Creek Indian, but I have never gone around calling myself Indian (what is that? 1/16th?). I am proud of her and think it is interesting, but that is all. I also have an assortment of many other countries in my past, I guess my family loves mixing it up.

My wife and now my kids add Puerto Rican Taino Indian to the mix, but we don't call them little Indians... although, I think I might for fun :-)

My priorities are in this order; 1) Christian, 2) American, 3) Human

Who was that leftist professor a couple of years ago who claimed to be Indian, but wasn’t? He was a real jerk, but the communist media tried to protect him.

My mother always told us kids that our great-great grandmother was full-blooded Ojibwa, but since I’ve never been able to prove it, I don’t even mention it. I’ve got two photos of her, and she does look like she could be indian, but since her marriage certificate shows her parents as members of the Church of England, I just figured the story was a bunch of hooey.

Cherokee was a really big tribe with a lot of mixing with local settlers.

Any way, this story caused me to check up on Shania Twain :-) who was adopted by Jerry Twain, "a full-blooded member of the Ojibwa First Nation". She is recorded as a 50% Ojibwa due to adoption. I thought that is cool. :-)

Shania trumps Elizabeth Warren!

I love this from the article about Obama denying he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Obama's silver spoon was a free pass through life all the way to the presidency:

"What would you call a free pass to Columbia and then Harvard Law? For a guy who thinks there are 57 states and that they speak “Austrian” in Austria? Who pronounces corpsman “corpseman”? Who became editor of the Harvard Law Review without ever having written a single article for the publication?"

You're thinking of Ward Churchill. If I remember right, he also pretended to be Cherokee. Apparently the tribe has rather loose "membership rules."

My dad was a Cherokee. All my life people would tell me that I should apply for all the benefits I'm “entitled” to. I would just tell them I'm not entitled to something just because bad thingd happened to my ancestors as it didn't happen to me. I had the same opportunities if I acted on my own an I don't need special privileges.

Yeah, War Churchill, that is the fraud I was thinking about.

As for the Cherokee, they were a really large tribe and not only spread out across the Smokey Mountain region but they were forced to march west in probably the most disgraceful and miserable action our nation has ever done. (trail of tears)

That abominable action spread them out more and resulted in a broadcast mixing of their tribe with others (black, white, other indians, etc)

The forced relocation of American Indians began with the Indian Removal Act of 1830. In 1838 the Cherokee Indians became the fifth major tribe to experience forced relocation to Indian Territory, present-day Oklahoma. Along the trail nearly 4,000 Cherokee died of starvation, exposure, or disease. The forced removal of the Indians remains a black mark on American history, and reminds those who desire freedom, that all people deserve a life of liberty regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.Trail of Tears

Not true. According to the Obama administration, if Rusty even so much as crossed a street with the help of a government-owned traffic light when he was in elementary school, he owes everything he ever accomplishes to government.

The Cherokee swelled their ranks when they allowed membership open to any quantum,ergo anyone who can trace their lineage to the Dawes roll is afforded full tribal membership. It watered down the benefits to full quantum, accordingly. The Navajo did not play that game and require at least 1/4 quantum for tribal membership. At least one grandparent must be full-blooded in order to get the freebies. At least they have some degree of contact with a tribal member, at least in theory. Not so for the red-headed, freckled-faced boy who spent a summer at the Indian Hospital where I worked. When I asked his quantum, he was too embarrased to answer. I guess a free-ride to dental school isn’t a bad gig for a poor Irish.. I mean Indian boy.

That is because there is no such thing as a full blood Cherokee anymore. However since they discovered Casinos wholesale DNA testing has ensued. I think the Cherokee will accept that kind of data. Paternity courts however will not let you off the hook for child support.
