While Warren will not meet with Cherokee women traveling from far away to speak with her, shes 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!
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.
New TV Program:
Cherokee Family Feud
She heap big snob.
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.
Like Paw-Paw like squaw.
Time to sharpen tomahawks...
Well, there goes the “family values” slant to her campaign.
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.
But I thought she wanted to meet people like her....
oh so she really did mean fake Cherokee, not real Cherokee
Trail of Jeers is what she needs.
“If Cherokee women don’t have anything better to do...”
Actually, I think this was a very good thing to do. They were trying to make a point for the public good. ;-)
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.
Maybe it’s a typo and they meant the Jeep Cherokee tribe . That would make sense.
And still the stupids of Ma will vote for her
Her Press Secretary indicated that the visitors’
cheekbones were too low, indicating that ‘UNLIKE
Ms. Warren, the visiting Cherokees were not authentic’.
It is unfortunate that the only choice is Scott Brown.
The real Indians not the faux Netroots Indians are comin for ya, Lizzy. Better circle the Priuses, lay in a fresh supply of invectives and denials, because the good guys aint liable to show up in the nick of time.
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.
Lol! I plan to share this with my husband, whose paternal grandmother was authentically Cherokee.
[It is unfortunate that the only choice is Scott Brown. ]
So a choice between Foe Fauxahauntaus and Leather Totonka with big Horn.
He who stabs in back and she who stabs in front....
We need to become “they who hold feet to campfire”.... either way...
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.
My Jeep is more Cherokee than Warren.
Well being a Jeep Liberty and everything, it IS first cousin to a Cherokee of the Jeep type.
I’m jus’ sayin’.
“Endeavor to persevere.”
The Indians ARE the good guys.
Fauxcahontis, if she wins will be a seat warmer for Joke3. She’d be 70 by the end of her first term.
Just when I thought it couldn't get worse.
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?
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'm curious what you thought of the Vietnam Vets who came down hard on Richard Blumenthal's stolen valor assertion that he served in Vietnam?
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?
I agree with you. What, really, is the point in traveling to see her?
Im not trying to judge their motives, but to figure out their point.
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. ;-)
Lizzie’s war on women!
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.
Like being American for instance.
Maybe it’s none of your damn business what these Cherokees are doing.
Many many moons since paleface Warren was born.
