Elizabeth Warren says she knows she is part Native American 'because my mother told me so'(Barf)
Masslive.com ^ | May 24, 2012 | Shira Schoenberg

Posted on 05/24/2012 2:18:59 PM PDT by libertarian27

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said Thursday that she knows she has Native American ancestry because her mother told her so.

Warren’s comments came after nearly four minutes of tense back and forth between Warren and Fox 25 reporter Sharman Sacchetti and 7News reporter Andy Hiller. As both reporters questioned Warren about why she listed herself as a minority in law directories, Warren refused to answer, saying she had already answered questions about her background.

Finally, Warren said, “I am proud of my family and I am proud of my heritage.”

Hiller followed up: “Does it include an Indian background?”

Warren replied, “Yes.”

“How do you know that?” Hiller asked.

Warren responded, “Because my mother told me so. This is how I live. My mother, my grandmother, my family. This is my family. Scott Brown has launched attacks on my family. I am not backing off from my family.”

Since mom told her about the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, that would explain why she is a liberal.

My grandmother’s grandmother was full Mohawk. I’m glow in the dark white. Should I claim to be something I’m not for financial advantage?

Scott Brown has launched attacks on my family.

Surprised she didn't go full-victim mode ...and say they attacks were because she's a female minority.

Lizzie, it is bad form to place the blame for your lies onto the shoulders of your mother. You knowingly misrepresented yourself, admit it.

Talk about stuck on stupid. It would be so easy to say, “Well I was told by my mom that we had Cherokee ancestors, but I never did the geneology. Now it seems that may not have been the case.” End of story.

I kinda hope she pulls it off. You see, “Lenhart” is a variation of “Lionheart”. Therefore I am descended from Kings ;) Add that to my distant Indian heritage. I will therefore be able to not only exert claim over American land, but rule it!

At least according to liberal logic....

If you lie about your family history, which is 100% verifiable (except if you are the LSM darling), you will lie about everything.

Further, my daughter liked dressing as a princess when she was little. More proof of my royal heritage. It’s genetic. I was born that way.

When I was a little kid, I was the darkest one in the neighborhood. I asked my Momma why that was. She said that when I was born she shared a room with a Mexican that already had 10 kids and wanted a white one so she agreed to swap out and that I was really a Mexican.

I started crying like a baby. She tried to calm me down and tell me that she was just kidding. It was too late. It had sunk in. Took me years to figure out that she really was kidding.

You'd just have to know my Momma. What a hoot!

>>MY mom told me I was smart and good looking.<<

My mom was more honest — she told me with looks like mine I had better excel academically (she was right).

Thank God my wife sees the soul and not the packaging... :)

And
I fully support that. It would be ‘specious’ for me to think and believe you are not. Any inhabitants of other planets would likewise only disavow your rightful place of power over interstellar racism.

I think we at FR should each stake our respective claim to greatness and publicly assert our feelings-based rights.

My husband used to tell one of our daughters that we'd found her in a box of broken china at the Berkeley Dump. Why? I'll never know. It was probably just something to say on a trip to the dump that they took. I hope she got over it. Of course the rest of us told her that wasn't true; that he was just kidding. But, you never know what deep seated resentments she may hold.

Your mom’s a lying sack.

Why do you believe her mother ever told her this?

She made this statement only so could use this phrase to attack Brown: "This is my family. Scott Brown has launched attacks on my family. I am not backing off from my family.”

Family legends. Just like everybody whose family has lived in Hawaii for long enough comes to imagine native Hawaiian ancestors, I guess people whose families lived in the former Indian Territory assumed their ancestors were Indian. Warren does, Obama does.

It can be hard to tell. If there were Indians in your family tree, they wouldn't have Indian names. But in the 1900 census, non-Indians outnumbered Indians in the Indian Territory by over 2 to 1. So if you look like Elizabeth Warren, it's best not to assume you have Indian ancestors.
