Skip to comments.NBC Reporter: DNA Test Is Proof That Tomahawk Liz Committed 'Some Level of Fraud'
Posted on 10/25/2018 4:46:16 PM PDT by Kaslin
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released her DNA tests recently, and it showed what weve known for years: shes not really Native American. The allegation has hung around her neck since 2012. Warren has claimed that she has Cherokee ancestry. She doesnt. She is 1/1024th Native American. I have more Native American blood than Warren and I have none. All credit for that line goes to Donald J. Trump.
If this is the new benchmark established by liberals to shield their own from terrible acts of cultural appropriation for personal gain, then I guess we can be whomever the hell we want.
So, what to make of this? Well, NBC reporter Jonathan Allen was on The Bill Press Show yesterday, where he said that at some level, Warren committed an act of fraud (via Free Beacon) [emphasis mine]:
NBC political reporter Jon Allen said Wednesday that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) DNA test, which she could be between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American, shows she committed "some level of fraud" by claiming Native ancestry in order to benefit from affirmative action.
"The people that are most offended by this are people who believe in affirmation action," Allen said during an interview on the "Bill Press Show," "because they're like, Elizabeth Warren didn't need affirmative action.' She perpetrated some level of fraud, and that hurts affirmative action."
"She wanted to get it behind her before the midterms," Allen said when explaining why she did the DNA test and announced the results at all, "so she could have a clean slate to go in."
Warren released the results of her DNA test on Oct. 15, framing the results as confirmation of her Native American identity. Cherokee Nation issued a statement in response, saying DNA tests have no bearing on tribal affiliation and that her actions were "undermining tribal interests."
"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong," his statement continued. "It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Elizabeth Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."
Now, how has this impacted Warren? Well, about half of the voters polled by Politico have not changed their opinion of her (via Politico):
Roughly half of voters 49 percent say Sen. Elizabeth Warrens decision to release the results of a DNA test indicating she has some Native American ancestry makes no difference in their view of her, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
Prompted in part by President Donald Trumps derisive references to her as Pocahontas, the Massachusetts senator made her DNA test results public last week, which indicate there is "strong evidence" she had a Native American in her family dating back 6 to 10 generations ago. Controversy over her ancestry has dogged the Massachusetts Democrat since she ran for Senate against former Republican Sen. Scott Brown in 2012 and the move was widely seen as an effort to help clear the path for a prospective 2020 presidential run.
Forty percent of voters surveyed nationally said the tests release shifted their view in some way 16 percent said it made their impression of Warren more favorable, while 24 percent said they view her less favorably.
Broken down by party, 57 percent of Democrats said Warren's big reveal made "no difference" in their opinion of her. The same was true for 40 percent of Republicans surveyed. Morning Consult polled 1,968 registered voters was conducted online Oct. 18 and Oct. 19, several days after the DNA test news broke. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
So, after years of harassing, protesting, and whining about so-called cultural appropriation, the Left is circling the wagons around a white woman who straight up committed the worst sin for this beautiful mess of an ideology. Theyre defending a white woman taking a racial status thats not hers in any way, shape, or form. Oh, and you bet that Warren isnt apologizing for it. What a time to be alive, but also shows how Democrats continue to fail miserably to police their own. Lie-a-Watha has been exposed at least.
What the article fails to highlight is even at best she has a miniscule amount of “possible” Indian blood and at least far less than the average white American!
I am White as they come and I’m only 4th generation removed from an Indian ancestor. She at the very most is 6th generation possibly 10th!
Without doubt, somewhere along the line in the fraudulent misrepresentation of herself, she’d have encountered that pesky ‘under penalty of perjury’ phrase with its accompanying warning re ‘subject to a term of imprisonment of ____ and a fine not to exceed $____’.
But stuff like that is, apparently, only applicable to us peasants, ehh ?
Media clearing the field for KH.
The test didn’t change my mind about her, but probably not for the reason the media want to believe.
Our family has Indian ancestry that has been traced back to some of the leaders on The Trail of Tears. My younger brother is the spitting image of Geronimo and a younger sister looks the part also with dark complexion and jet black hair. I have never had a thought of trying to game the system and try and gain some advantage from it.
Tomahawk Liz! Now thats funny!
As in president of the United States? Hahahahaha!
Music to my ears, her toastiness, however she is still a sitting senator in liberal Mass who will likely be voted back in. I hope not!
I think her video where she rolled out her great accomplishment also has a story of how her grandfather’s family didn’t want him marrying his grandmother because “she’s part Cherokee and part Delaware”. Cherokees do have their own tribal government, which rejects DNA. But Delawares were annihilated shortly after the Revolutionary War, so they have no government to speak of, and that’s her fallback. She might not be a Cherokee, but she has an infinitesimally small amount of Delaware genes, which together with her unrecognized and also infinitesimally small amount of Cherokee genes, makes her slightly Amerindian in combination. Amusing that a full-grown Senator with years in politics actually is making an issue of this. She’s lost it, if she ever had it.
Why doesn’t the Administration of Harvard have to bear some of the blame on this ?
It’s not like the staff of one of the highest rated academic institutions couldn’t tell she wasn’t any kind of ‘indian’.
Warren was a crappy politician before all of this with ZERO appeal. Now she is crappier.
If you are 1/32 Indian you may be able to qualify as a member of some tribes - and that doesn't always show in your appearance.
You could argue that Harvard was unethical in playing up Warren's claim to be native American, but I doubt they violated the law in taking her at her word.
At first I thought this was from NBC...wait, what???
Wow, I’m forced to agree with some NBC reporter?
How long have I been asleep?
no Indian just 99.9% Bull.
