Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren Is Getting Destroyed More For Calling Herself A Native American (Fauxcahontas)
Posted on 05/16/2012 6:28:56 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The controversy over Elizabeth Warren's claim to Native American ancestry shows no signs of dying down, and is now threatening to derail her campaign for Republican Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate seat.
Politico reporter Maggie Haberman has now uncovered Pa 1997 piece from the Fordham Law Review that refers to Warren as "the first woman of color" hired by Harvard Law School.
The piece cites as its source Harvard Law spokesman Michael Chmura, the same spokesman who bragged about Warren's Native American heritage to the Harvard Crimson in 1996.
Warren has so far dismissed the story, which first surfaced when the Boston Herald uncovered the Crimson article. She has said that she did not know Harvard was billing her as a minority professor, although identified herself as a minority on law professor listings until around 1995, and was also identified as a minority faculty member when she worked at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Brown campaign has seized the story, and is demanding that Warren release her law school personnel records to show whether her minority background had anything to do with her hiring.
The question here is not about Elizabeth Warrens credentials, so much as it is about Elizabeth Warrens integrity and truthfulness and willingness to be transparent, Brown's campaign manager Jim Barnett told reporters yesterday.
Conservatives have also demanded that proof that Warren is 1/32 Cherokee, as she claims.
Breitbart.com has turned the issue into a cause célèbre, publishing almost daily stories that claim debunk Warren's ancestry, including one alleging that one of Warren's forebearers actually rounded up Cherokees for the Trail of Tears.
Warren's response hasn't helped quell the firestorm. Despite first denying that she knew anything about the minority listing, she now repeatedly claims to be "proud" of her Native American heritage

Seems she’s a “transparent” “woman of color”...hmmm - is “clear” a color?
Yes this is a perfect case calling for the Lautenberg gambit.
Some (like Warren) got rich through fraud, lying and cheating.
There is an “immigration lawyer” named Marisa DeFranco who is running. Little known, no money.’
>>U.S. Senate candidate Marisa DeFranco will drop off more than 10,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, validating her primary run against Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic battle to unseat Republican Sen. Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race.
DeFranco, a federal immigration lawyer in Middleton, has worked against the odds to remain one of the two Democratic contenders in a Senate race once made up of several notable politicians all aspiring to take on Brown in November.
DeFranco collected $9,074 in campaign contributions during the first quarter of 2012, ending the period with $8,080 cash-on-hand, according to the Federal Election Commission.
>>is clear a color?
In one episode of Sanford and Son, Fred gets robbed, and the two neighborhood cops, Smitty and Hoppy, drop by. The white cop asks Fred, “Mr Sanford, you saw these burglars...were they colored?”
Fred: “Yeah, they was white.”
It’s all over talk radio here in Boston. It makes perfect sense, since he’s already announced that he won’t be seeking reelection, and he recently offered a non-denial denial.
The MA primary for Sen. is on Sept 6: “The primary election is September 6, 2012, two months before the general election. It was originally scheduled for September 18, 2012, but was moved due to a conflict with Rosh Hashanah. The 2012 Democratic National Convention is scheduled to end on September 6, which has led to new concerns about the primary date.”
That was from Wikipedia which also mentions other candidates like Newton Mayor Setti Warren and City Year founder Alan Khazei withdrew. Among the people who possibly could have run but decided not to: Congressmen Barney
Frank, John Tierney, and Mike Capuano; RFK son Joe Kennedy II (father of
JoeJoeJoe); Ted K’s widow Vicky; libtalker Rachel Maddow;
Bos Mayor Tom Menino; MA Gov Deval Patrick etc
Fauxcahontas of the Fauxnee tribe. They are offshoots of the Pawnee tribe who have a great restaurant/zoo called Wild Bills, while the Fauxnees have Bile and Schill....
Ain't that the truth?
An old army buddy of mine grew up on the Wind River Reservation near Riverton, Wyoming.
He told me that prior to World War II, the cowboys and Indians in that area didn't like each other much and mostly kept to themselves.
After the war, many had served together, gained a mutual respect and discovered mutual interests.
When the hippies started showing up in the early 1960's, a popular male boding activity was to go to town, practice their lassoing on hippie motorcyclists passing through, then proceed to give them a good close haircut with a set of sheep shears. Sometimes, the activity was fueled by alcohol. Mostly, it was just for fun to show the hippies what they thought of their disrespect for the flag and all other things American.
One summer night, the local law enforcement was on high alert because a motorcycle gang of hippies had vowed to right into Riverton and teach the town a lesson.
The cowboys and Indians were waiting for them. The resulting fight produced nothing more serious than a bunch of split lips, scrapes and bruises plus a broken store front window. But the grand finale was a gaggle of hippies with new haircuts limping out of town southbound on highway 789 serenaded by a combined cowboy and Indian chorus singing patriotic songs.
Lately I haven’t listened to anyone but Howie and not all the time.
I took a quick look at his state campaign acct( which I don’t think he could use in a Senate race) and he only has 90k right now.He would need at least 5m and he would have to come up with that quickly
I’m also proud of my Native American heritage. I’m sure everyone else here is, too. I was born in Lynn, MA, a part of the United States of America. I am a Native American.
Is it just me, or are we witnessing the implosion of liberalism itself?
Elizabeth Warren, the Trayvon episode, Sandra Fluke, and now our first gay president-all these are not just backfires, they are revealing political reversals.
The silver lining in the very dark cloud that is Barack Obama is that he has put liberalism into practice, and it has revealed where liberals have been coming from all these years, and it is obviously taking us places we don’t want to go.
LOL! Excellent graphic.
Dem primary 9/6.
National Dem Party already cleared the field for her. Hand-picked by Obama. Rumor circulating that she will be forced out by retiring MA governor and mini-Obama, Deval Patrick. He would be much tougher to beat.
Amazing. 60+ posts and I’m the first to mention Ward Churchill? She can look him up after she implodes and they can commiserate.
No federal campaign listed at FEC as of today.I’ll keep a check on that for a little bit
Howie and Michael Graham have been talking about it. I fear Deval. Granny? Not so much.
If Obama pulls the trigger, money will flow.
She should have a Pow Wow or even a better a Potlatch and give away all her money
That is what concerns me. Brown maybe should have kept this quiet, not letting it goes so far as to cause her to exit the race.
1/32nd? That’s peanuts !!
Being born in the United States of America, I am 100% Native (American).
I doubt highly anyone except for Fauxcahontas will be running.
IMO its too late for any of the replacements mentioned that are state or city office holders to get a federal campaign together. As for Congressmen,they had their chance to line up against Brown months ago and passed. They could use their campaign acct to run but I doubt it.
As for Deval, here are the reasons I don’t see him running:
1.No federal campaign listed with FEC.
2.I think he’s holding out for an appointment in 2nd Obama admin if there is one.
3. He’s won govship with less than 50% of votes twice. Not a ringing endorsement from MA voting populace.
4. He’s lazy. He’s planning on spending vast majority of summer at his “shack” out in the Berkshires.Spend his summer
stuck with the hoi polloi at campaign events in Everett, Fall River,or Fitchburg? Perish the thought.
Hope you’re right. If so, things look about as good as they could be.
They don't just 'rewrite' our history to serve their agenda; they gladly rewrite their own.
Can only ask; where is Oprah, when we need her?
Surprised that no one has mentioned the Urban Legend (I hoe not) about the Anglo-Saxon dude who applied at a college, stating that he was an Indian. When asked what tribe, he said, “SoSueMe”.
I love your post#6: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2884349/posts?page=6#6
Deval is the only Dem who could beat Scott Brown.
That’s a great story. They didn’t even need Billy Jack to bring them together.
FWIW, I’m an early boomer (b. 1948). Dad was WWII, Korea, & we served concurrently in Vietnam. I’ll never understand how the Greatest Generation managed to produce so many hippies & misfits. The draft dodgers I kind of understand even there were many ways to enlist & never see combat, and maybe the majority of draft age boomers led more or less normal lives, but what drove the counterculture hippie movement totally escapes me to this day.
Grey ponytails are its only remnant.
Could it be that her “chickens are coming home to roost?” DemocRATs everywhere will see their “chickens” coming home to roost in November.
Add another thing: Brown could rake him over the coals in a state-wide for the whole EBT thing. Like Giggidy said, Coupe never received more than 50% of the vote, and if it weren’t for frigging Cahill, he’d probably not be governor today.
Maybe I’m just a big goof but I’m seeing bad news for the commie ‘RATS everywhere I look. We’re going to need a lot of straight jackets for the buffoons in the state run “media” after the November elections. Those morons are about to get a wake up call from America. JMO.
In the internet world, universities are superfluous. They don't know it yet, that's all. And they're supposed to be so smart.Yup.
