Elizabeth Warren: ‘I was hurt, and I was angry’ [background as rooted in Native American ancestry]

Elizabeth Warren: ‘I was hurt, and I was angry’ By: MJ Lee April 16, 2014 05:44 PM EDT

Elizabeth Warren “was hurt” and “angry” about attacks on her family and ancestry in the 2012 Senate race, she writes in a new book, defending at length her characterization of her background as rooted in Native American ancestry.

Warren, the first-term Massachusetts Democratic senator, details her campaign to unseat former GOP Sen. Scott Brown in a new book: “A Fighting Chance.” POLITICO obtained an early copy of the book, which is set to be released on April 22.

The book begins with some of her earliest childhood memories of growing up poor in Oklahoma, and reveals personal details about the senator’s life, including her first, failed marriage. It also dives into her views on the 2008 financial crisis and her role in building the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

The book’s upcoming release has already created plenty of speculation about Warren’s potential 2016 aspirations — whether she may run or at least seek to shape the political debate surrounding the presidential race.

If there was one takeaway from her 2012 Senate race for Warren, it was that the campaign trail turned out to be more brutal than she could ever have expected. Republicans questioned her integrity, her family members were dragged through the mud and her opponent mocked her appearance in a radio interview.

“What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” she writes about the 2012 Senate campaign. “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me.”

If the commie bitch would’t lie all the time, she wouldn’t be “hurt and angry”.

And that’s the truth!

It’s alway interesting to me to hear these liberals.
When they were going after Mrs.Palin they were just
after the facts, but republicans were “attacking”
her family.

It’s tough out there for a poor little 1/16th indian
girl.

I will state this very simply.

My grandmother was full blood Native American. This B i tch is an impostor and a bold faced liar.

She is offensive to every person in the world who has Native American blood in their veins.

She lied for political and personal gain. She lied to get a job at a major college. She lied her butt off and now she whats to be the victim. BS, SHE IS A LIAR AND A FRAUD!!!!!

Rule # One for Liars caught in Deceitful Lies in order to steal preferences from Native Americans?

...Play the "victim" role.

IBD has an excellent summary article on how Warren is a Fraud.

What I'm pretty sure of is this: there are many, perhaps hundreds of Freepers out there, whose family brags of having a Cherokee princess in their ancestral line.

And if you say you don't, then I am also pretty sure you're lying.

A couple of days before the election she did an interview with a local Boston reporter.Part of the interview took place right in front of Liawatha's house.At one point the reporter said,in response to something Liawatha had said about her Indian "roots",something like "do you have any mementos of your Indian heritage in your house?" Liawatha replied "yes,but not for you".

She's a much an Indian as I am a Korean.

CHEROKEE CHECKBOX
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
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat

Republicans questioned her integrity

Because journalists couldn't be bothered, even though it was proven that she lied through her teeth to grab set asides intended for minorities.

My wife according to family stories had a G-grandmother who was Cherokee. Her sister had a DNA analysis done and her genes confirm Native American ancestry. Let Warren show her DNA or shut up.

“anyone publish”

Remember that Politico is a spinoff of the Washington Post.
Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Why is it that nearly all of the phony part Indians claim Cherokee? Is that the only people they know? My wife was part Chickasaw -—from southern Oklahoma——but she did not try to use that for any advantage. She had some first cousins who got college paid for through having enough per centage but I think that was fine. They were for real unlike The Lying Queen.

Amen, it would be great to see her DNA tested. Of course Hell really will freeze over before that ever happens.

It would really be cool to see the Oklahoma Cherokee government challenge her on that topic though.

Liz, hey, whoa! This one’s for you, baby ...

They took the whole Cherokee Nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife

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
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I’m still a redman deep inside

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

But maybe someday when they’ve learned
Cherokee Nation will return
Will return, will return
Will return, will return

Who loves ya baby? Woo woo woo woo, woo woo woo woo:
Chief Bowels move now, teepee full of ****.
Ugh. How. Me love you long time. You so hawney.
