Skip to comments.Surprise: Elizabeth Warren Refuses to Explain Heritage Claims at the DNC
Posted on 09/04/2012 9:55:36 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
As an obligatory follow-up to my post earlier today, it appears US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is steadfastly refusing to confirm or deny allegations she purposefully lied about her ethnic heritage in order to bolster her academic career. The Boston Herald reports:
Elizabeth Warren, scrambling to shift focus from her ongoing Cherokee scandal, dismissed demands from Native Americans who want her to explain her heritage claims in her first appearance at the Democratic National Convention this morning.
Ive answered those questions, what Im here to talk about (is) whats happening to Americas working class families, said Warren, who had just completed brief appearances on the Today Show before the prime-time speech tomorrow.
Questions surrounding Warrens American Indian heritage re-emerged after many members of a council of Democratic Native Americans including the great-grandson of Geronimo were outraged that Warren listed herself as a minority in a law school directory without any proof.
Warren ignored a follow-up question about whether she was refusing to meet with the group, who are loyal Democrats and come from across the country. She has continued to claim that her Cherokee roots are a part of her life due to stories her family told her, but shes declined to speak further about the issue.
Are we really surprised? I mean, this is the same Democratic Senate candidate who told reporters last May the reason she listed herself as an ethnic minority (for nine years) in a professional law journal was to, ahem, meet people who are like I am. Wow. And setting aside the fact she still cannot produce one single shred of evidence corroborating her dubious (and discredited claim), Professor Warren also stopped self-identifying as a Native American in 1995 -- that is, the very same year she achieved tenure at one of the most prestigious law schools in the nation. Curious, isnt it? In other words, theres a reason why Elizabeth Warren is constantly avoiding reporters by dismissively declaring shes already answered those [kinds of] questions. She hasnt. Just ask any of the disgruntled Democrats at the DNC (who also happen to be Native Americans) still waiting for answers.
She’s the perfect DemocRAT. A lying fraud.
A democrat lying like a sack of $hit??? Really?
I mean, they are the only ones that care about integrity, transparency, ethics and fairness, right? Not like those evil bible believing Republicans.
I’m curious to know just how a family in, what, Massachusetts, ended upmwith legends of Cherokee ancestry anyway.
That’s a little far afield. Southerners, yes. All manner of people in the south have legendary Cherokee ancestry and quite a number can prove it. I can.
Along all the migratory paths west from the south since the founding of this nation, yes.
But New England? No.
She made it up.
Odd how the same people who claim they were at Woodstock, also claim to be an Indian, and Irish.
“I offer wampum for understanding. Perhaps another investment in an indian cultural center in lieu of an an endorsement would be agreeable? May we now smokem peace pipe.”
It pains me to say it, but Elizabeth Warren was born and raised in Oklahoma.
Princess Lying Squaw chooses not to speak of the origins of her high cheeckbones?
Should be easy enough to go to Tahlequah and look into the “rolls,” then, the Indian censuses, many of which are as recent as the early twentieth century, to point out her relatives. This has not happened, just stonewalling.
A third cousin of mine is a past Chief of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, and I can show just how via a paternal great grandmother. I’ve got seven different people who descended from the same lines I did, including a maternal great grandmother, who are one the Guion-Muller Rolls. The census for out there is the Dawes Roll, I think but am not certain.
And I don’t even make any claim to be Cherokee, not now and not for hiring or college admissions preference.
She apparently did. It’s not just a matter of untruthfulness and dishonor, it’s potentially actionable misrepresentation.
My grandmother was from Okla. and her grandfather was Cherokee, guess that make me a Cherokee too. Do em Rain Dance. Drink um firewater. Whoope Doope we have fun.
Everybody IS Irish.....O’UCANSEE2!!!!!
See how I did that?
Wasn't she in A MAN CALLED HORSE ?
Her forked tongue gets in the way.
Elizabeth Warren sing-along: HALF BREED
Iron Eyes Cody was an Italian American. Ask Tony Soprano.
“Are we really surprised? I mean, this is the same Democratic Senate candidate who told reporters last May the reason she listed herself as an ethnic minority (for nine years) in a professional law journal was to, ahem, meet people who are like I am. Wow. “
This is the same candidate who believes ripping the arms, feet and heads off living unborn babies is a civil right and two men engaged in sodomy is equal to marriage.
This people are complete nuts.
Why do you think he was crying? < /sarc >
Right ! That must be her tribal name. Princess Heap Big Sack of $hit. Make sure you spell it right on your check.
