Elizabeth Warren Lashes Out At “Right-Wing Extremists” Behind Ongoing Cherokee Controversy…
Weasel Zippers ^ | 6/19/12 | zip

Settle down, Fauxcahontas.

(Boston Herald) — On their first day in the Hub, a group of Cherokees hoping to confront Elizabeth Warren over her Native American heritage claims blasted the Democrat for trying to dismiss the ancestry controversy as a non-issue in the Bay State U.S. Senate race.

“Poverty, teen suicide, our health care system,” said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes in an interview today with the Herald. “Those are issues and those are the people she stepped on and used to benefit and now she says it’s not an issue. Well, of course, to her it’s not an issue because she doesn’t want to address that she did this.”

Ali Sacks, a Cherokee from Warren’s home state of Oklahoma, had harsher words: “It’s cowardly to ride the coattails of people who have lost so much for your own benefit and not accomplish what you can accomplish on your own benefits. I think it’s shameful and extremely disrespectful not just to Cherokees but to all tribes who have given so much to this country historically and lost so much.”

Four Cherokee women are in Boston for four days hoping to arrange a meeting with Warren. A spokeswoman for the Warren campaign told the Herald Sunday a staff member would greet the group, but the women told the Herald this morning they’ve still heard nothing from the campaign. [...]

The Cherokee thing is a smokescreen. She is really Castro's daughter.

My wife's maternal grandfather was 100% full Cherokee and her grandmother was half Cherokee, and both lived on a reservation out west. By our reckoning, that makes her about eight times more documented blood Cherokee than Warren and her thrice-removed family folk tale heritage. Now, while acknowledging that my wife is Republican, does it still make her a right wing extremist if she'd like to kick Warren's ass for hiding behind her 'people'? Those dark-haired, brown-eyed sistas gotta stick together, ya know.........

Poor babys. The commie ‘RATS, including their boy Barry, are so damned thin-skinned. None of them can take a punch. Barry and the ‘RATS are out there whining that Americans are being mean by heckling their messiah. What a bunch of crybabies.

The most telling aspect is, my wife has always just listed herself as 'white' on any documentation she's filled out, when could have legitimately checked 'Native American' if she wanted to exploit it for personal gain. Warren has gotten by in life by exploiting a hearsay biological marker that wouldn't amount to a fart in a hurricane even if it did exist. Sometimes I think she ought to run for office - she's one of those gunslinger management types that corporate likes to transfer from one place to another to 'straighten shit out', if you get my drift.

I always liked “Paints his shirt red” for a name. I think that was in Jeremiah Johnson. It has the same form as a name I heard of that was given ( according to this story ) to a geologist, who, being pursued by Indians, paused to procure a sample and was subsequently caught by his pursuers. They were astounded to see that he was carrying a bag of rocks while in flight for his life, and what’s more paused to add to it. They named him “Picks up rocks running” and released him, in honor of his insanity.

I did not know that John Loudermilk wrote that song, as I only recall the late 60's schlock version. I liked his version a lot more. Thank you.

This may be his best known song, though many may not associate it with him:

Tobacco Road

In the summer of 1971, when another schlock version of "Lament of the Cherokee Nation" was riding high on the charts, the radio station KREL, broadcasting "oldies" at 1370 kcs out of Corona, Calif., gave the Loudermilk version a lot of airplay, so that's how I became familiar with it.

I prefer Loudermilk's version of "Tobacco Road" over the Nashville Teens' version that scored four years later, in 1964. In the late 1960's and early 1970's, Loudermilk's The Language of Love (1961) was also on the playlist of KWIZ, an "oldies" station at 1480 kcs in Santa Ana, Calif.

Nice to know she believes the Cherokee Nation is Right Wing. If your going to call yourself one—maybe you better put on the feathers and buckskins. I am 32nd Arapaho but I would never dream of calling myself a member of that illustrious tribe. I am far more Irish and Scott (tribes of a different sort). My half son is 1/4 Seneca and has real links to that Tribe and their reservation. He looks Indian. Sad thing, many people see him and think he is a Latino and starts to speak Spanish to him (something he hates). As he says “My people were Americans before there was an America.” This Warren lady was using this Rumor of her birthright to advance herself both politically and academically, I for one am glad she was found out.

Hope you do keep Brown. We got rid of Lugar. Guess you gotta keep a RINO until a conservative arrives. But, that is like voting for Romney just because he is all we have to vote for. Anybody but Obama...that is what they have given us.

The conservative you speak of is running against a kennedy runt for Bawney Fwank's redistricted seat here in MA4. Sean Bielat has a chance and is getting my support.

The Kennedy’s owned the “State” . Not just the Unions! Now it’s David Axeldork’s experiment...... DeValue Patrick ( D.IL D. MA) that is insisting that Unions work on State jobs... if you are not Union you can’t work nor bid on a “State Job”, period.

And those of “you Folks” from out of State had better realize that there will be no
“Conservatives” from MA evah.

Private enterprise cannot afford these parameters any longer, we are mostly moving away to income tax free States like FL and NH... now DO YOU GET why these States are “purple”? The Kennedy sycophants are dead or dying.

We are stuck with the ACADEME Lizzie Warren’s of our “Esteemed “ toilet rooms called Harvard, Welllesley, Smith, MIT!

We are doing the best that we can.

Take your “baited” breath elsewhere....
