Elizabeth Warren challenged by Cherokee group (demand truth)

Elizabeth Warren challenged by Cherokee group
By MJ LEE | 5/30/12 3:07 PM EDT Updated: 5/30/12 9:47 PM EDT

A group of Cherokees have organized and launched a website disputing Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American heritage.

Some 150 people purporting to be “concerned” members and descendants of three Cherokee tribes have put up a new website called “Cherokees Demand Truth From Elizabeth Warren.”

The group is demanding that the Massachusetts Senate candidate come clean about her heritage – a topic that has dominated media coverage of Warren’s bid again incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown ever since it was revealed that the Harvard law professor was previously listed as having ethnic minority status.

“You claim to be Cherokee. You forget, it isn’t who you claim, but instead, who claims you. We don’t claim you!” a banner splashed across the top of the group’s website reads. The group argues that Warren has made “false claims of Cherokee ancestry,” and that it is bothered by those who “fraudulently” claim Cherokee heritage.

Americans to Obama:

“You claim to be American. You forget, it isn’t who you claim, but instead, who claims you. We don’t claim you!”

What she’s done is roughly akin to a “stolen valor” violation. She knew there was prestige/benefit associated with being perceived to be a member of this tribe, so she shamelessly claimed it for herself. Once she’d achieved her objective (Harvard tenure), she dropped it.

These Cherokee birthers are just trying to distract the voters from the important issues.

Proving she's a liar and a fraud will enhance her standing with 99% of Democratic voters in MA. She's just like they want to be (and would be if they weren't too stupid to figure out a useful lie and milk it for decades)

That is exactly right. The tribe seems to be making that point, so why isn't the media?

Scott Brown should continue to hammer her on this. because even Mass. voters should finally get tired (after 40 yrs of the "Swimmer" Kennedy) getting lied to constantly and treated like they are complete idiots.

The level of her hypocrisy alone is amazing.I would be outraged over this as a Mass. voter. She lives in a multi million dollar plus home and claims to feel the pain of the "commoner".

A liberal will continue or amplify a lie until they are in court, jailed, or dead.

Maybe if they stopped acting like complete idiots, it would help with that.

These liberal scumbags would NEVER use the word “purporting” if it were a Democrat “approved” minority. Oh the rats “approve” Indians when they can involve Indians in voter fraud, but when the Indians say things that don't “fit” they are “purporting” concern. Moreover this is 150 people not the 7 or 8 people the Democrats would champion IF they were politically correct - ugh these people are skunks!

"Cherokees Demand Truth..."

Nothing could be more subversive of the mendacious Left, the very foundation of whose movement is scorn of truth.

Modern liberalism exists so that narcissists can feel special.

Here the thing about her. Politics is about the public trust. Americans have forgotten this because of their predisposition of pulling a lever for a “D” or an “R”. The name next to it has become irrelevant.

I tell my inlaws they would vote for Hitler if there was a “D”

They still hate me. I told them that 20 years ago and they still vote “D”

Wow. If Politico is reporting this, then I think she may well be sunk. Of course, I never underestimate the ability of liberal voters to ignore their candidates' histories when their politics are considered correct.

The point to highlight is that someone who lies to the voter so blatantly disrespects them and discounts their intelligence. When someone lies to you they are telling you either: “You are weak” (and therefore won’t challenge the lie) or “You are stupid” (and therefore don’t know when you are being told a lie).

Scott Brown should continue to hammer her on this.

Scott Brown needs to step away from this, so as to avoid being attacked by Warren and her minions as being "anti-woman". It's already got enough momentum on its own. What's the saying? "Never stand in the way of your opponent while they are destroying themselves."
