Skip to comments.Did Elizabeth Warren Just Kill Identity Politics?

Elizabeth Warrens Native American Heritage is the title of a new campaign video promoting the senior senator from Massachusetts. Ms. Warren, a former Harvard law professor, is claiming vindication after presenting the results of a genetic test which appears to show she likely has more of a claim to Native American heritagebut perhaps less of a claimthan the average white person in the United States.
The Boston Globes Ms. Linskey has previously reported on Ms. Warrens various racial claims:
In 1984, she contributed five recipes to a Native American cookbook entitled Pow Wow Chow: A Collection of Recipes From Families of the Five Civilized Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. In the book, which was edited by her cousin and unearthed during her 2012 campaign by the Boston Herald, her name is listed as Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee.
Warren also listed herself as a minority in a legal directory published by the Association of American Law Schools from 1986 to 1995. Shes never provided a clear answer on why she stopped self-identifying.
She was also listed as a Native American in federal forms filed by the law schools at Harvard University and University of Pennsylvania where she worked.
And in 1996, as Harvard Law School was being criticized for lacking diversity, a spokesman for the law school told the Harvard Crimson that Warren was Native American.
Before facing President Trump in a 2020 debate, Sen. Warren will first need to win over the Democrats who vote in presidential primaries. If these voters accept her as a Native American then logically it suggests that most if not all Americans can also claim to be members of groups that have historically suffered discrimination.
Were all minorities now?

We can always hope! If so, it would actually be the first positive thing she’s done for America!
Well, it kept chugging along after Dolezal and the other faking media darling.
The left will just invent another person to push.
But identity politics has been injured some.
How much remains to be seen.
My great grandfather...1/4 Native American. Union Army discharge papers. 56, brown eyes, black hair, olive complexion... Ruh roh
I am wondering how long until Booker, ineligible Harris, and others start one-upping Warren on their respective identities?
She'd already made it look stupid, but it didn't need her for that. Instead, I think it has killed her 2020 candidacy, and with luck, killed her Senate career.
Pow wow chow reviews here, good for a chuckle
We are all native american indians now.
Some really great, hilarious reviews :D. Thanks for the link.
And I’m a Watusi.
Gosh, I hope they run her. Not because Trump will need help, but just for the kicks.
It’s so trendy these days to be non-white in some respect. On my mom’s side of the tree it was a family secret for decades that my grandfather was the son of a half-breed (Choctaw). It wasn’t until I was grown and in my 40’s that I did the research and tracked down the grave of my great-great-grandmother who was adopted as an infant from a Choctaw reservation in Mississippi in the middle of the 19th century.
That makes me 1/16th I believe. Just enough for the Sasquatch to recognize me.
In the early 20th century, my grandmother had 4 daughters. The two older daughters looked like Native Americans. The two younger daughters do not. In fact, my mother was blonde and fair. Lastly, my older brother looks like a Native American. My sister and I don't.
If Warren had any relatives that were actually Native American, or even looked like they were Native American, you'd think she could come up with more believeable stories. Especially considering the lame BS she tells.
“BELIEVE ALL WOMEN!!!”/s
Answer: No. But she killed her presidential campaign.
Leftists will forever grasp on to being a real victim by virtue of centuries-old atrocities. But will the rest of America? Can conservatives actually fight back with their philosophy that unites Americans?
Identity groups are interet groups. LGBT, Trans, The Poor, etc. are like sewing circles written large and political. They exist to seek special privelige. As such, they will always be with us.
Whats even funnier is that most of the reviews are from 2012.
