Cherokees travel to Mass but Elizabeth Warren refuses to meet them
Legal Insurrection ^ | June 18, 2012 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 06/18/2012 6:30:45 AM PDT by SumProVita

While Warren will not meet with Cherokee women traveling from far away to speak with her, she’s holding fundraisers in the Bay State this week to celebrate her birthday on Friday.

Can you imagine the chorus of "racism!" that we'd hear if a 'pub did this? It's amazing!

Arrogant B*tch!
I can’t blame those women for not wanting to be part of Warren’s means to an end.

Lieawatha is the most tone-deaf politician in modern history. It’s like Bob Shrum is running her campaign or something.

If being purple would get her affirmative action goodies and votes, she’d claim to be a grape. Same thing with Obama - he’d eat the pet dog if there was a dog-eating group with enough votes to make it worth his while.

If Cherokee women don't have anything better to do, that says something about them, just as not meeting them says something about Ms. Warren.

Liawatha not real Cherokee, just heap big chicken. Cherokees squaws come from far away place to seek pow wow...smoke peace pipe.

Liawathy say no pow wow, no smokem pipe.

Liawatha seek wampum by visit to Mohegan and Wampanoag tribe...maybe go to Nantucket.

Cherokee squaws make heap big plan to ambush Liawatha and take wampum and scalp...and return to far away place.

The comments at the link are spot on, but this particular reader's post is an all-time classic:

The cherokee were one of the few Native groups that actually looked favorably at assimilating into the european culture and then the dim’s favorite idol andrew jackson stabbed them in the back.

Things would have been a hell of a lot different if Andrew Jackson wasn’t president, heck I daresay the cherokee people would have become a more intergal part of america.

I hope Andrew Jackson is burning in hell right now for what he did to the Cherokee.

Boston, MA — Elizabeth Warren, Democrat candidate for Senator, announced today that she was the first Cherokee woman to toss a perfect game in Major League Baseball. Warren said the feat occurred in 1977 though could not provide enough documents to prove this claim. Warren said she also hammered a home run in the seventh inning for the only run of the game. The Harvard graduate also said her grandparents were in attendance and that should be proof.

We have a president now that is doing and has done far more damage to ALL Americans than Jackson ever did to the Cherokees (half of my ancestry). And I sincerely hope Obama burns in hell for what he’s ‘still’ doing (and has yet to do) to Americans and to Israel.

Just saw that the Muslim Brotherhood has won power in Egypt. Everything is going along according to “the plan”, IOW.

Better to have him, even if he posed as a hunk, rather than Warren who poses both as a Cherokee and an American.

Well being a Jeep Liberty and everything, it IS first cousin to a Cherokee of the Jeep type.

I’m still waiting for this question:

Ms. Warren, did your adult children use the Native American designation for college and grad school admissions, scholarships, and job applications?

They were trying to make a point for the public good.

What point? "Look at this paleface, trying to horn in on our Preferred Victim benefits! Cheater!!!"?

Even if they had a better point, such as, "All distribution of jobs, votes, and money based on race or ethnicity is pernicious and un-American," I think the point has already been made to anyone who is willing to pay attention.

I think you may be incorrectly judging the motives of these Cherokee women. The focus should be on WARREN’s motives.

There’s a difference between claiming to have served in the military and claiming to be a favored minority: one is the dishonest claim to an accomplishment, and one is not. However, even in the veterans’ case, eventually the point has been made, and further marches or caravans or whatever are unproductive.

One of the problems with our society is that people have been taught to be “proud” of non-accomplishments, so that we now have whole industries devoted to creating a sense of entitlement based on breathing, rather than respect that is earned through good character and achievement.

I suppose that there are more disgraceful acts by our presidents, but what Jackson did has to be near the top of the heap. I, being half-Cherokee, have long despised the man.

It's a shame that he got to die in bed.

I’m not trying to judge their motives, but to figure out their point. It’s already been established that there is absolutely no evidence that Ms. Warren is Cherokee, but that she has claimed to be Cherokee in order to take advantage of racially preferential policies and sentiment.

I am genuinely curious as to what else there is to be said that requires people’s making long journeys to say it to her personally. There is a financial cost and an opportunity cost to this event: what is its intended benefit?

___________________________

One and the same.

Could it be that these women are attempting to maintain pressure on Ms. Warren to serve the conservative cause?

I live in Tennessee and there are quite a few people here with genuine Cherokee ancestors. All of those that I know are conservatives.

The only way we can actually know their motive is to personally interview the women who traveled to Massachusetts. At this point...I prefer to see the glass as half full. ;-)

They are outraged, offended, and hurt, the article says. They want to tell her, in person, how outraged, offended, and hurt they are. I’m not sure why ... she’s done them no practical harm, unless one of them is a lawyer who might have gotten the AA position at Harvard if Ms. Warren hadn’t. And telling her will not set them free from their outrage etc., because racial “activists” are always outraged: it is the purpose of their existence.

They also want her to admit she lied about being even a fraction Cherokee. Good luck with that: she’s a Democrat, a lawyer, and a politician! Waste of a trip to Massachusetts. They could go to the Bahamas instead.

At any rate, it’s more bad publicity for Ms. Warren. A conservative Senator in Massachusetts doesn’t exist, but at least there a Republican check-in-the-box if Scott Brown is reelected.

We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on Massachusetts.
