Posted on 05/04/2012 7:58:22 PM PDT by Iam1ru1-2
Radical Elizabeth Warren is the Democrat candidate challenging Republican Scott Brown for his Massachusetts Senate seat. She is also a Harvard law professor who had an interesting background check of sorts this week. During her career at other schools, Warren claimed Native American heritage based on little more than family "lore," supposedly as a means to enjoy minority status and smoke the peace pipe with other faculty members. "I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off." Indeed, having reached Harvard, Sacaja-Warren dropped the routine, perhaps hoping to shed the aura of the victimized native. Ironically, her questionable claim has now jeopardized her chances of taking the Senate seat once held by another famous Native American, Teddy Chappaqua Dick.
Typical lib, can’t make it on their own merits.
Being a foreign student worked for Obama all through college.
A major reason these people demanded all these preference catagories in the first place was so they could use them to get ahead.
Remember, “truth” is an artificial construct to liberals. Facts, logic, objectivity... all are synthetic systems conceived by the dominant culture to perpetuate it’s unequal status and impose apartheid-like burdens on other ethnic groups.
For this reason, “truth” is malleable, fungible, flexible. It can be distorted to suit the goals of the enlightened oppressed. In short, liberals don’t have to tell the truth. They can do, say, write, claim whatever is necessary to get ahead. They have no pangs of conscience about it.
They do react in amusing ways when they’re caught out, and their faculty-lounge logic gets punctured by stinging satire.
Oh how this must be driving Elizabeth Warren — and her backers — up the wall.
I have gotten the biggest HOOT out of all this. My mother and I have tagged it: “Woo-woo Gate”. We are of Cherokee lineage, but it’s never even crossed our MINDS to, somehow, USE that for our own benefit, or to score points. It’s utterly ridiculous.
I will say, tho, that our family suffered at the hands of that GREAT Democrap.......ANDREW JACKSON...and that my relatives were afraid to admit that they were Indian for fear of being sent to a reservation. Perhaps dear Elizabeth can expound on THAT, little fact? Hmmmm?
Ha! That’s the movie I was trying to think of.
Whiter than White
Whiter than white on rice
Like white Ivory Snow soap, 99.9% pure (bullshit)!
One of the 1 Percenters
Doesn’t Obama know anyone who isn’t a liar, an opportunist, a crook, a commie, crazy, or any combination thereof?
"Hast du gesehen in deine leben? She's whiter den us....WOOF!"
I sometimes check the ‘native american’ box merely because I was born in and hence indigenous to the Americas (the US specifically), have no meaningful connection to any other continent, and am tired of nosey forms that care about my ‘ethnicity.’
“people who are like I am.”
What does that even mean?
To which Clevon Little said:
“Where the white women at”?
Blazing Saddles. The movie that insulted everyone and made you laugh at the same time. That is America.
You should see my granddaughter singe a couple verses of “I’m so tired”.
Has it down pat but doesn’t understand a word of it, and we won’t tell her until she’s 16.
Can I claim African-American status because my family lore says I really can dance?
I always said that Richard Pryor did more for race relations in this country, because he made white and black people laugh at and with each other.
They’d drag Mels Brooks body up and down Hollywood Blvd with a Hummer limo if he tried to make a movie like that today.
Just don’t teach her “The French Mistake.”
Look at the center of Big Chief Mel Brooks’ headband.
It’s.....The Double Cross!!
Anyway, EW............! That’s Elizabeth Warren in a nutshell.
