Elizabeth Warren makes emotional defense of Native American b/g in Springfield for MA Dem convention
The Republican ^

Posted on 06/07/2012 10:41:47 AM PDT by matt04

U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren passionately defended her Native American heritage, after reaching Springfield by train today for the state Democratic Convention on Saturday.

About 5,000 delegates on Saturday are expected to vote to endorse Warren as the Democratic pick for Senate to face Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown in November. The endorsement could give her some momentum for the months before the general election.

"My mother and father fell in love," Warren, 63, told reporters after disembarking from a train with dozens of supporters at the train station and then rallying backers with a stump speech at Stearns Square Park.

"My father’s people said he should not marry her because she is part Cherokee and part Delaware. They eloped in order to deal with that. That is my mother’s story," she said.

Warren, a Harvard law professor, hit back at criticism that she may have initially said she was unaware that Harvard had listed her as a minority. She also denied that her academic career was enhanced by the status.

"I've said exactly the same thing and that is that I let Harvard know after I was hired,'' Warren said. "I let the University of Pennsylvania know after I was hired. This is part of my family. I never received any benefit from it. Every single person who has been involved in hiring me has issued a statement to that effect."

She said she will never forsake her American Indian background.

"I have never backed off from my Native American heritage and I am never going to back off from my Native American heritage," she said.

Springfield Ma is the original home of Indian Motorcycles. Wonder if she knows this.

God, I’m getting sick of her SQAUWking about this. Be brave, Elizabeth. This affirmative action totem pole has to be dismantled. Scott Brown isn’t just going to beat his opponents, he’s going to Wampum.

If Warren's 1/32 American Indian, then her mother would have been 1/16 American Indian. I find it extremely hard to believe that her father's family in Oklahoma (fka "Indian Territory") would have objected to his bride because one of her long-dead great-great grandparents was an American Indian.

There is only one slight problem — SHE HASN’T GOT ANY INDIAN BACKGROUND! It was a lie to take advantage of Affirmative Action hiring; a real steal from a REAL Native American to advance her career. Not that this bothers the Demos in the slightest; the same people who went into hysterics over Nixon’s supposed “crimes’ shut their traps tight when the thievery involves one of their own. Oh ye hypocrites!

She looks to me like she might actually have some Native American genes. Why won’t she just get tested? Or... maybe she has, and plans on cutting critics off a the knees as the election approaches..

Just when you think this woman can’t possibly get any more delusional, she goes right ahead and does it.
Amazing.

"My father’s people said he should not marry her because she is part Cherokee and part Delaware. They eloped in order to deal with that. That is my mother’s story," she said.

Two things:

1. If Lieawatha's mom was 1/16 INDIAN, this statement says her mom was actually 1/32 Delaware and 1/32 Cherokee, which makes Lieawatha 1/64 Cherokee and 1/64 Delaware. so her Cherokee bonafides are down to 1.56%.

2.How did a Cherokee and a Delaware get together in the first place?

On the bank, of a river, stood Running Bear. Young indian brave.
On the far side, of the river, stood Little White Dove.

Running Bear,
loved Little White dove,
with a love,
that wouldn’t die......

I forget how the song goes after that, but maybe that song is where the squaw from MA gets her heritage from!
She heard her history on the radio.

Here’s a transcript of her speech:

They took the whole Cherokee nation
And put us on this reservation
They took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife

They took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
And though I wear a shirt and tie
I still part Redman deep inside

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

And some day when they’ve learned
Cherokee Indian will return
Will return will return
Will return will return

"My father’s people said he should not marry her because she is part Cherokee and part Delaware."

Big deal. My kids are part Thai and part New Jersey. We fixed the latter by moving.

This women is bubbling over with bull buffalo excrement.

Her new straw man is to defend Native American heritage, which has never been an issue.

The issue is that she used ancient family folklore (assuming she didn’t just make it up) to invent herself a minority status and grab an affirmative action wicket.

This woman is pathological.

Do you see how these emotional actors always work on the left? Do you see how the lie gets wrapped up in emotional feelings more than any fact whatsoever? It is their signature acting skill as they use the emotional call out to then suggest you are bad for calling them on their LIE. This socialist/Marxist practicing liberal progressive from the pit of hell wants you to emote...NOT THINK. Its how they are and I resent them and how they manipulate people with that approach and I will always call them on it and not be polite about it!

The Delaware resettled in Oklahoma in the 1860s, on land they purchased from the Cherokee.

Clearly there is someone on her campaign staff who is doing a lot of reading, trying to craft a more plausible backstory.

Nothing funnier than a leftist forced to stick with an indefensible lie. Just keep making it worse, Liz.

"My father’s people said he should not marry her because she is part Cherokee and part Delaware. They eloped in order to deal with that. That is my mother’s story," she said.

0/32 Breed, by Fauxahontas Warren

My father married a 0/16 Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The Indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me "Indian Squaw"

0/32-breed, that's all I ever heard
0/32-breed, how I learned to hate the word
0/32-breed, she's no good they warned
All 32 sides were against me since the day I was born.

Is this from the Onion?

First she plagiarized French recipes from the New York Times for a fake Indian cookbook, now she is plagiarizing an old Cher song for her life story.

“My father’s people”

Were her father's people the ones that were rounding up Cherokees to ship them off to reservations?

The "elopement" story is a crock. According to Breitbart, they traveled 14 miles from home and got married in a church by a minister!!!

Good grief. Imagine if we had "I'm not a witch" running for reelection against "I'm not a Fauxcahontas" instead of RINO Brown.

Christine could've been making Warren look not so bad right now to the voters.
