Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren struck a deal with the devil in claiming Native American ancestry for advancement

..This is the trap that Warren fell into. From the very moment she claimed her small amount of Native American ancestry as an identity politics virtue, race defined her and her career at every turn. Then, just as we recently witnessed, this path led to her being exposed as a fraud before the entire nation. What a sad fate.
But this is not the worst of it. Warrens claim of Native American ancestry made her complicit in identity politics institutional racism.
The powers behind identity politics have long abandoned the hard work of helping impoverished Americans climb out of poverty and into the middle class through education, ambition and hard work.
Today, all that matters to many universities is whether they have enough of each racial and ethnic group with minority status represented.
In Warrens case, universities didnt care that she had blond hair, blue eyes and never lived on a reservation. They were more than happy to add another body to the Native American category, upping their diversity bona fides.

that’s a cock, isn’t it?
I don’t see her as being any different from other people who hate themselves to the defree that they deny who they are, ant attempt to be someone they aren’t...such as trans gendered folks, transvestites and such. That’s not to say it’s a good, right or healthy way to be. Some folks just hate who they are, that much. They need that fantasy world for whatever reasons.
It’s also my opinion that now that the cat is out the bank, she should return the monies she gained through her fraud, Harvard University to start with.
How about the mosquito on someones arm with the quote there goes the Native American blood.
Elizabeth Warren: You promised!
Lucifer: Yeah, and you said you had a soul!
The Democrat Party has been controlled by Satan since 2012.
She’s a typical liberal: wanting something that doesn’t belong to her.
The Hell PR office says their boss had nothing to do with her, after all even he has standards.
Returning the Ill gotten money would require character she could never manage. She wouldnt have the slightest idea. Steele wrote a great piece.
I am slightly less than 1% black. It was most amusing to find this out via DNA analysis. I am culturally Anglo and Mexican as I was raised on the border, speak Spanish and have a wonderful Mexican Wife. I am also a hardcore constitutional libertarian conservative!
It is time to get over this insane racial identity politics! It is tearing our great nation apart.
It should then come as no surprise that the very racial power that seduced Warren eventually became a corruption, consuming her career and worse, her character.
I just didn't want anyone who did not read to the end of the article to miss the above.
Youre right, its an excellent piece.
Belfast and the Poison of Identity Politics by Thomas Lifson
I spent yesterday in Belfast, Northern Ireland, a city that nearly destroyed itself thanks to the embrace of identity politics. For three decades of the late twentieth century, physically indistinguishable Irish people slaughtered each other using terrorism based on their tribal identity as Catholics or Protestants. Terror bombings of pubs were a common tactic, as were kidnappings and torture.
It wasn’t even a religious conflict, for the correct path to salvation or any religious doctrine at all was never a point of dispute. The Protestant terrorists identified as British and wanted to remain part of the United Kingdom, while the Catholic terrorists wanted to unite with their cousins to the south in a United Ireland. Despite common Irishness and Christianity, people in large numbers felt justified in slaughtering strangers in the name vengeance for wrongs of the past.
It was obvious, driving on Falls Road in the heart of Catholic West Belfast and Shankill Road in Protestant West Belfast less than a mile away that grudges are still deeply felt, despite a peace process that began in 1994 with a ceasefire, which continues today. A map of the religious enclaves in Belfast used by British forces during The Troubles, as they are known, shows that Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods are scattered all over. On this map, seen at the Museum of Irish Republican History in Belfast, Catholic neighborhoods are in green, and Protestant areas are shown in orange [i].
So far as I was able to discover, there are still no neighborhoods in Belfast that are integrated today, so deeply held are the grudges.
The violence in Belfast became so terrible that 13 miles of wall were constructed to separate enclaves. Along Falls Road, murals cover remaining parts of the wall, and today one sees how the radical partisans of the IRA side identify with other practitioners of identity politics elsewhere, united in (past one hopes) terrorism used in the cause of Catalonian independence and Palestinian resistance to the existence of Israel.
One part of the wall remains as an actual barrier. This view is from the Protestant side. I was told that the additions to make the wall higher were done to prevent Molotov cocktails from being lobbed over the wall to firebomb residences:
The Troubles economically devastated Northern Ireland and affected the Republic of Ireland as well, driving out investment and stifling new economic activity. Belfast had been a major industrial center, with shipbuilding, heavy engineering, and linen production powering its growth. It was as badly devastated by de-industrialization as anywhere in the American Rust Belt, but with the added problem of terrorism. Today, Northern Island is dependent on billions of pounds a year in subsidies from Britain.
Today, all of Ireland is riveted over Brexit, with the issue of re-introducing a border and customs duties between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic a major concern. Both sides in Ireland want to continue the economic integration that has resulted from E.U. membership by both Britain and Ireland. The M 1 Motorway between Dublin and Belfast is full of heavy trucks carrying goods produced or imported to one side of the invisible border to the other, just as heavy trucks move across state lines in America. The only visible manifestation of the border today is a sign reading “Welcome to Northern Ireland” along the highway, with “Northern” spray-painted out and replaced by “United” by some vandal.
The conclusion that I draw from my brief experience is that identity politics is poisonous and ought to be shunned by all people interested in peace and prosperity. Alas, hatred of “The Other” is useful as a means of uniting one’s own. In terms of American politics, President Trump often makes the point that we are one nation, that “we all bleed red, white, and blue.” His opponents seem to be pushing us in the direction of our own Troubles.
Draw the appropriate conclusions and vote next month.
Oh what I would pay to have been a fly on the wall inside of her campaign when the decision to go forward with this was made.
Warren is a no-talent hack.
“I dont see her as being any different from other people who hate themselves..”
With all due respect, I don’t think that’s what is driving her. She is like Hillary, driven by narcissism and the absolute NEED to be recognized as better than, greater than smarter than, etc. etc. Combining this with liberal politics allows them to portray themselves as brilliant warriors, fighting for the downtrodden - who NEED THEM. It’s sick, and ultimately destructive, but unfortunately quite prevalent.
In as much as narcissists are thought to not like themselves at their core, you may be right. That said, I think she identified as an American Indian simply because it helped her. I highly doubt she spent much time thinking about what being an American Indian actually means, and what hardships they’ve faced.
What’s sick is these people are so incompetent, so weak, so doubting their own skill sets and abilities, so morally bankrupt that they will masquerade as somebody else to get get ahead, all the while hurting another person who is the genuine article. They should be called out for the reprobates they are.
Why didn’t she fake it? Why didn’t she use someone else’s DNA? If she can’t fake a simple DNA test why would we elect her president? A good President needs to be able to bend the rules some. Last “Honest” President we had was Jimmy Carter—and he was a failure! I bet even old Abe was able to bend things around (Like the ships to Fort Sumter no one talks about).
