Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren’s goose is cooked No morsel of truth in her Indian identity
Posted on 05/18/2012 8:31:49 AM PDT by outpostinmass2
If I might make one suggestion before the updated version of the Pow Wow Chow cookbook is released: Next time, Liz, hold the mayo.
Even if you were 1/1000th Native American which youre not and even if Cherokees did hold pow wows which Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes told the Herald yesterday they dont even then, your contribution to authentic teepee cuisine is Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing?
Why didnt you throw in Tuna Casserole and Some Twinkies while youre at it?
Like her recipe (serve salad with remaining mayo on the side), everything about Liz Warren screams Im white!
In fact, I doubt you know anyone who is more white than Professor Pow Wow Chow. Her blond hair, her blue eyes, her pale, freckled skin, her wealth, her white-collar job at a white-kid Ivy League college, her liberal-suburbs-white-lady politics Liz Warren is a walking, talking tribute to Guilty, Affluent White People Who Listen To NPR American culture.
Which is why its so offensively shocking to read report after report about Warren as a woman of color. Thats the exact phrase used 15 years ago in an in-depth article from the Fordham University Law Review about minority women in academia: Harvard Law School hired its first woman of color, Elizabeth Warren, in 1995.
And shes got the cookbook to prove it!
Nobody cares that Liz Warren is not really 1/32nd or 1/64th Native American. Whats off-putting is that Warren is so clearly not a minority member in any meaningful sense of the word.
When this article and others were published describing Warren this way, she should have objected. She should have corrected the record on behalf of those Americans who have truly suffered because of their race. But instead she spent her career, as she put it, checking the box.
Heres the reaction to Warrens self-serving box-checking from Pollys Granddaughter, a Cherokee Indian and genealogist in an open letter to Harvard Laws first woman of color:
You say you only checked the box in an attempt to meet others like you, but that doesnt make sense. If one is claiming to be Cherokee and wants to meet other Cherokees, they dont check a box on a job application or in a directory for their profession! They go to where Cherokees are.
You are from Oklahoma! (emphasis in original)
Pollys Granddaughter is absolutely right. As Ive written previously, my mom was born in Oklahoma, and her great-grandmother, Nancy Hill, was a Cherokee from the Oklahoma territories. I also attended college in Tulsa, Okla. Meeting Indians in Oklahoma is as easy as knocking on a neighbors door and saying Hi, wanna come over for some crab-and-mayonnaise salad?
Being from Oklahoma also means theres a good chance Warren also encountered anti-Indian prejudice first-hand. I only lived there a few years, and I did. I ran into some Okies who spoke about Native Americans the way the worst Southern whites talked about black Americans.
Those are the Native Americans the phrase person of color is intended for, not Former member of ABBA look-alike Liz Warren.
She knows this. Shes known it her whole life. Yet shes chosen to play the role of suffering minority member, thereby making a mockery of the real suffering of others
Column is by Michael Graham.
Princess Running Weasel has been found out.
Anyone know of any recent polls re: this race between Warren and Scott Brown?
She probably parks in the reserved for handicaps spaces as well. A sense of privilege comes naturally to these narcissists. When they are not being “royal”, they are being “victims”. As my pappy says: “Characters, characters, never just plain people.....CCACNJPP”.
50/50 about 2 weeks ago but no polls since fake indian gate
most excellent point....
and of course we know that Warren is Cherokee the way that Obama is a Christian American
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
She is another member of the infamous Faux Indian tribe like the phoney Colorado Faux Indian psuedo professor, Ward Churchill.
Another Harvard fraud.
The real issue is that so much of America seems to reserve jobs for racial set-asides.
If that happened in my line of business I would write myself up as some favored ‘nority in every job application - simply as a protest.
Lizzie Warren took an “x”
And filled some boxes with her checks
And when she came to “Cherokee”
She checked her cheekbones, said “That’s me!”
Wish I could agree but I can’t.
Jamie Dimon and the boys from JPMC officially un-cooked it the other day by putting Banker Stooooopidity front and center on the agenda again.
This issue was tailor made for Warren, she owns it.
Plus I suspect we will have a few more highly publicized banking fubars before the election.
Say hello to our First Fake White Indian Senator.
People should show up at her campaign appearences (if she’s even doing any now) and do the tomahawk chop and chant like Atlanta Braves fans do.
Hahaha, good one.
205 of 208 people found the following review helpful raves from fellow faculty members May 15, 2012
By John Courtade
I've received nothing but rave reviews from my colleagues after whipping up treats from this cookbook in the faculty lounge kitchen. Admirers of Pow Wow Chow may also enjoy Bow Wow Chow, a Indonesian-influenced cookbook from a former professor now in politics.
It worked for Obama, why not Warren? /s
Usually someone who lies about small things like this will lie about many things. Right now she has people and news agencies looking into her past. Never a good thing for liars. Election is a long way off and there will be debates. It all depends if the minorities come out enmass to cast votes for Obama and then Warren as well. Coakley couldn’t get them to vote for her and it sunk her campaign.
I've watched people use the system so badly that I want to
puke choke. The worse, for me, are the Chinese. For the MOST part they don't need the entitlement funds because they are (as I said, for the most part) successful--but they take the dough.
It's all part of this problem of entitlement. Who the HELL gave ANYONE over 18, mentally competent and physically healthy the RIGHT or authority to take money because, boo-hoo, my ancestors were treated right or "my" ethnic group doesn't have as big a piece of the pie (MONEY) as the whites?!
BULLSHIT baloney category.
The new meme being circulated on the local blogs is that she was recruited by Penn and Harvard and there was no application for her to check off. That’s not how it’s done at Ivy League schools. I guess Job Applications are only for us little people.
There is a plus here for Lizzie the Liar.
Being a rich white liberal (hypocrite) means never being embarrassed. It can’t be done.
I haven’t seen any polls, but seeing as how this is Massachusetts, I’m thinking this is not going to deter that many Dems from voting for her.
That was put out by a fellow Law Professor who contributed $250 to her campaign. I don't buy it. I have been recruited for jobs and H.R. always has made me fill out an application form. If anything the form allows H.R. to perform a background check on myself as I sign a waiver on the form.
Of course northerners are never racist.
Okay, perhaps I have been marinated in our “politically correct” culture for too long; but, isn’t the very title of that book, “Pow Wow Chow” offensive? I mean, really, Pow Wow Chow???
Coakley couldn’t get the minorites out to vote for her. I don’t think being a fake Indian will help Warren in that department.
My eldest daughter (some years ago)took piano lessons from a Chinese lady. She was a single mother with one daughter; and, when my girl was looking at colleges she enthusiastically told me that there are lots and lots of scholarships out there. I nearly laughed in her face (I didn't); but, it really struck me that this woman honestly believed the BS that they were now getting things that "Whites" had always gotten.
“I mean, really, Pow Wow Chow???”
As opposed to a Chow Pow Wow, which is a breakout session at a dog show. (The four-legged version, not those sponsored by the National Organization of Women — NOW Pow Wows.)
Could our Native American Brothers file a Class Action Lawsuit for fraudulently trying to include herself in a well-defined Racially Profiled population?
Lemme see now, - - - hmmmmmmm - - - ? If it is against Federal Law to Racially Profile, and Princess Running Weasel has tried to be racially profiled, and it turns out that she is not a Princess, - - - ? (This must be DC Code, as it is very complex)!
Since Lizzie, the “Running Weasel” has been excluded from the Reservation, the voter should voters her out, without reservation.
You may well be correct. I just don't see mass defections from the left.
Again, it's not only Lizzie the Lair that can't be embarrassed, most of the voting libs can't either.
“People should show up at her campaign appearences (if shes even doing any now) and do the tomahawk chop and chant like Atlanta Braves fans do.”
They should sing the Washington Redskins fight song “Hail to the Redskins.” The PC crowd hates that team name and song. That is why I always bet on the Redskins.
Or wear Cleveland Indians hats.
Urk. Certainly not. There were more deserters from the Blue Devil army when these boys found out they were getting their legs blown off to "free the slaves" - than there were soldiers in the entire Southern Federal Resistance.
Slavery - 100 years later - gave birth to the tyranny of low expectaions entitlement culture. IMO
I knew she reminded me of Lizzy Borden somehow. Now I have that running through my head. LOL
A Lonely Little Cherokee
Wanted only to meet people like she
Lizzie checked a box
Now the nation mocks
Our own precious Princess Lying Tree
Her speak with forked tongue. I once saw her at a party and she speared two olives out of a dish at the same time with that tongue.
You need to review her OTHER book:
Dreams of My Great-great-great-great-great-grandfather
What's 'offputting' is the mere fact that she KNEW that she WOULD get special treatment by being a 'member' of a minority group.
SHE had no hand at all in writing the LAWS and RULES that GIVE some folks an advantage over others.
Gaming the system?
Don't make me laugh!
100% full blooded 'minorities' do this all the time.
It is EXPECTED!
It that like being named after Sir Edmund Hillery or being with Chelsea on the streets of NY on 9-11?
You nailed it!
Before MLK day was a holiday; we used to have ‘speakers’ about Black this-or-that in the afternoon, after lunch, where I worked.
One could get an hour off work just by going to these.
It was a great time to take a nap.
Quote: “Usually someone who lies about small things like this will lie about many things.”
I think the left will abandon her because the lie isn’t big enough. I mean, the left only respects and votes for the big liars. Now, if she had lied about serving in Vietnam, she may, I say may, be qualified to be elected in Connecticut. But for Mass, she is going to need a much bigger lie.
Remembering your dad marching with Martin Luther King does, though!
We have those all the time, for every kind of heritage you can imagine.
The last one I attended (after being coerced by my boss) was the 2009 Black History Month presentation. I was so angry by the time the speaker finished I marched right up to him after the presentation and challenged him on several things he said.
It was an hour long Obama love fest, with a heaping helping of republicans are idiots and black republicans are traitors. The republicans in the room were absolutely frozen in their chairs, just staring at this guy. The boss was watching or we all would have walked out.
I vowed never to attend another of of these fiascos. And since I’m boycotting one group, it’s only fair that I boycott them all.
I’m holding out for Amish Heritage Month. Then and only then will I consider going.
They don’t like fakes over in The Nations, or anywhere else for tha matter. They tend to cause problems for the true bloods.
