Elizabeth Warren Is Getting Destroyed More For Calling Herself A Native American (Fauxcahontas)
Business Insider ^ | 05/15/2012 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 05/16/2012 6:28:56 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The controversy over Elizabeth Warren's claim to Native American ancestry shows no signs of dying down, and is now threatening to derail her campaign for Republican Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate seat.

Politico reporter Maggie Haberman has now uncovered Pa 1997 piece from the Fordham Law Review that refers to Warren as "the first woman of color" hired by Harvard Law School.

The piece cites as its source Harvard Law spokesman Michael Chmura, the same spokesman who bragged about Warren's Native American heritage to the Harvard Crimson in 1996.

Warren has so far dismissed the story, which first surfaced when the Boston Herald uncovered the Crimson article. She has said that she did not know Harvard was billing her as a minority professor, although identified herself as a minority on law professor listings until around 1995, and was also identified as a minority faculty member when she worked at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Brown campaign has seized the story, and is demanding that Warren release her law school personnel records to show whether her minority background had anything to do with her hiring.

“The question here is not about Elizabeth Warren’s credentials, so much as it is about Elizabeth Warren’s integrity and truthfulness and willingness to be transparent,’’ Brown's campaign manager Jim Barnett told reporters yesterday.

Conservatives have also demanded that proof that Warren is 1/32 Cherokee, as she claims.

Breitbart.com has turned the issue into a cause célèbre, publishing almost daily stories that claim debunk Warren's ancestry, including one alleging that one of Warren's forebearers actually rounded up Cherokees for the Trail of Tears.

Warren's response hasn't helped quell the firestorm. Despite first denying that she knew anything about the minority listing, she now repeatedly claims to be "proud" of her Native American heritage

Sandra Fluke’s take on the matter is that maybe Warren was not able to score a luncheon with another Indian but at least Harvard Law insures her for free birth control pills as a consolation if she got lucky with another dime store Indian

LOL! Good one! I can actually prove Native American heritage but have never used it to get a job or government goodies.

I did, however, once confess to it when the HR Department came around soliciting it (years after I was hired) because they needed data for an EEOC report.

DUmmie FUnnies 05-10-12 ("Cherokee Checkbox": The Faux Squaw, the Democrats' Warren Woman)

CHEROKEE CHECKBOX
Tune: Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)

She took some small Cherokee ration
Put this on her information
"Native A," although it's slight
She checked the box even though she's white

Took a while till it was known
That Liz is Anglo to the bone
And all the claims she made before
Aren't Lizzie Warren's anymore

Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high

She took the whole Indian fable
Used it for her PC label
Though she's blond with eyes of blue
She's still a redskin through and through

Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high

But maybe someday when she's beat
Cherokee Checkbox will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat

There are a lot of such unscrupulous types like that out there. I went to college with a boy from South Louisiana. He was as cajun as it gets, but because his surname happened to be of Spanish derivation, he was able to apply for and get additional financial support, despite the fact that his family had been in Louisiana for several centuries, and certainly were not discriminated against. In fact, at one point in time, they were the folks “in charge”.

What "color" would that be? If she were any whiter she'd be an albino.

Too bad reading “1984” is [probably] not required in HS anymore.

Short term: they'll find a nice rug to sweep it under.

Long term: it's one more chunk of what's left of the prestige of academia flushed down the toilet.

In the internet world, universities are superfluous. They don't know it yet, that's all. And they're supposed to be so smart.

Dances With Nauseousness

On land where she was born
By the big state of Texas
Stood the house of Warren
Granddaughter of a princess
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

Dark behind her rose the lie
Wanting to be a professor
Rose the lie for her to try
As a member of the feather
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

Listed as a bona fide native
Diversifying the faculty a lot
Bedded soft in the affirmative
Rose the mighty in her spot
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

Sold out integrity for a claim
As a princess of the feather
She had no need for shame
Got the entitlement together
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

With a letter from her cousin
Stood the princess of the feather
Diversified the two dozen
Made the Harvard much better
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

As her bright eyes lit the sky
Around the Harvard of the better
Had no shame from such a lie
She the princess of the feather
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

Heard the whispers of her greatness
Chose to run for a Senate office
Now hears the jeering of her fakeness
Making all her friends so nauseous
One so great great great great
She of the Cherokee state

Heh, heh, the state of Oklahoma still owes me $50 because I’m 1/32nd Ocmulgee. That `settlement’ was announced back in 1972.

My Tulsa cousins are `Cherokreeks’. Go figure.

What Fauxcahontas needs to know is that many Indians are more redneck than redskin; they like their pickup trucks, their guns, hunting, & freedom.

New England Yankees just heap crazy!

Well here you go. Warren was a republican in her 40’s when she first claimed native American heritage. So it’s a GOP problem, not the Dems, and she’s cleared now that she’s an OWS Democrat. lol

Jamie Dimon singlehandedly rescued her campaign. Kneeing bankers in the groin is what got her to where she is today. By putting bank regulation back front-and-center JPMC has almost guaranteed her election, fake Pocahontas or not.

Seeing someone get caught in their own mess is reassuring.

The higher their profile, the more offensive their persona and ideology, the more reassuring their fall.

And the more educational their example.

Hmmm...well, what do you know...she really is a teacher.

I don’t want to see her campaign derailed so she can be replaced by a stronger candidate.

I want to see her defiantly limp across the finish line to place a far distant second.

Then the lawsuits for fraud can begin.
