Elizabeth Warren Dances with Lies

Pages: 1 2

Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, “Lies on Race Box,” is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard.

Harvard took full advantage of Warren’s lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient “diversity” in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, “I am very proud of my Native American heritage.”

Except, oops, she has no more evidence that she’s an Indian than that buffoon out of Colorado, Ward Churchill.

The Boston Globe immediately leapt to Warren’s defense, quoting a genealogist who found a marriage license on which Warren’s great-great-uncle scribbled that his mother, Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee. This is not part of the official marriage license. (If I scribble “Kenyan” on Obama’s birth certificate, does that make it true?)

But let’s say it’s true. That would make Warren a dotriacontaroon — 1/32nd Cherokee. That’s her claim to affirmative action bonus points? You don’t know what it’s like to be 1/32nd Cherokee, to never have anyone to talk to, spending so many evenings home alone, wondering if there was some other 1/32nd Cherokee out there, perhaps looking at the same star I was.

Soon, however, the preponderance of the evidence suggested she wasn’t even 1/32nd Cherokee. The census records for 1860 list the allegedly Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, as “white.” Also, Warren’s family isn’t listed in the Cherokee registry. (Unlike Democrat voter rolls, to be on the Cherokee list, proof is required.)

On the other hand, we have what her son scribbled on his marriage license — something, by the way, that none of his siblings claimed about their mother.

So now we’re down to Warren’s reminiscence that her great-aunt used to point to a portrait of her great-great-grandfather and call him an Indian, noting his high cheekbones.

Family lore is not proof. Proof is contemporary documentation, produced under penalty of perjury, such as a census record. My mother told me she found me under a rock, but I don’t put that on job applications.

The universities that employed Warren rushed to claim that her fake Indian ancestry had nothing to do with it. They speak with forked tongue, causing heap-um laughter. (Harvard was so desperate for diversity, it made a half-black dilettante president of the Harvard Law Review!)

To grasp what a sin against political correctness this is, consider the Jesuitical debates about blackness regularly engaged in at our universities. About the time Lies on Race Box was getting a job with Harvard as a fake Indian — valued for her fake hunting and tracking skills — a debate broke out at Northwestern University law school about whether a potential faculty hire was black enough.

    Very funny, and as usual, sharp as a razor. Warren deserves every well aimed barb. ____

    Warren's great-great-great grandfather participated in the notorious Trail of Tears, and now it seems she is creating a trail of tears all on her own…. from our laughter.

  • Anamah

    Anne is right and as she so well knows, Elizabeth Warren has lost her mind decades ago. And she is simply a dishonest ambitious woman.

  • Bat Shlomo

    Can liberals be more than 33/32 full of bullsh*t?

  • Schlomotion

    You know when the neocon pundits come out with only this one red herring and harp on it to high heaven, that they really don't have anything substantial against Elizabeth Warren. Really? The Indian thing still? Nothing to say about economics?

    • reader

      Nothing to say about economics? Really? Is that what democrats are running on nowadays? You're to dumb to even troll, troll.

    • kasandra

      It's not a red herring and it not only this one dishonesty. She also claims she isn't wealthy but lives in a $5,000,000 house and earned (or at least was paid) over $700,000 last year. She's the consumers' friend but represented insurance companies fighting aspestos claims. See a pattern emerging?

      • Schlomotion

        I would like to see a pattern emerging. Someone should do a genuine scathing article with loads of facts.

        • kasandra

          First you complained there was just this one instance of dishonesty. So I gave you two more instances. Now you want a whole article. Maybe you should use Al Gore's amazing Internet and find the information yourself. You'd be amazed what's out there.

          • Schlomotion

            I would be amazed if there were an actual negative article describing Elizabeth Warren in all of her allegedly glaring badness and not just this gaggle of cranks making fake Indian noises.

          • kasandra

            Look, the only crank making noises here is you. If this were an episode of Law and Order, her credibility would be considered as having been shredded by now. Support her. Vote for her. Who cares? Just don't claim no one has found evidence that she's, let's say, casual with telling the truth and adept at manipulating our racial spoils system.

          • Schlomotion

            I am glad Law and Order is your yardstick of credibility.

          • Tim

            Keep diggin' Schlomo, keep diggin'.

          • truebearing

            And yours is power chords and juvenile rebellion.

          • truebearing

            It is a testimony to your moral turpitude that you don't see lying about one's race for personal profit as anything bad. It clearly shows that you, Warren, and the Left in general, see civil rights as a fulcrum for power, both personal and political. To you it is a franchise, a political scam….for political scum.

    • Maxie

      "Nothing to say about economics?"
      No, this time it's about dishonestry and hypocrisy. Besides, Liberals don't even know to spell 'economics'

    • truebearing

      Lying isn't substantial? Lying about one's race to gain personally isn't substantial? Deceiving students and voters isn't anything substantial? Being a complete fraud isn't substantial?

      I'll tell you what isn't substantial…..your pathetic, delusional denial.

      • Schlomotion

        If you believe in a religion, you have no business pointing out lies.

  • BS77

    We are all 1/32nd something! What a joke. I am 1/64th Apache, Chinese, Estonian, Hawaiian, Tibetan, Egyptian and a smattering of Irish, Inuit, Polish, French and Mayan….so let the entitlements and praise rain on me!!!!!!! Now, where is my full scholarship to Princeton? Where are my "go to the front of the line" benefits???? Come on now!!!
    This is an affirmative action quota system, isn't it???? Give me my government cheese!!!

  • Tiberius

    I think this is valid to go after her claim of having Cherokee ancestry. Liberals make a big issue about diversity why not use it to point out their hyprocricy. Seems only when it’s a red herring and straw man when their medicine is returned to them to take. By the way, hiring Elizabeth Warren meant that a qualifying REAL Indian probably did not get hired! Ever think that Motion is Schlo?

  • dIANA

    ain't no red herring…tis the root of all democrats…..ANYTHING DONE TO GET SYMPATHY AND A VOTE TO GAIN POWER..



    • Stan Lee

      Believe it or not, Warren the fraud has a good chance in MA. MA is a state that elects kooks, just look at its lineup of elected representatives! Consider also, the fact that they keep being reelected! Only in MA!
      The Civil War didn't have to start, all the states should have just seceded from MA!
      It's no more than a cesspool of leftists and Elizabeth Warren realized an important fact that's honored in that state…the kookier a candidate is, the better chance that candidate has to be given a political job.

  • Attila The Hun

    Lizzy is a typical morally corrupt Marxist.. The only thing The Dems/Marxists care is their slice of the pie and more. And they are the ones who call us greedy? Weak up Massachusetts. I can't wait seeing her going down in flames as Martha Coakley did.

  • StephenD

    From old Looney Tunes episode:

    "I'm 50% spits, I'm 50% Irish Setter, I'm 50% Doberman…Hey wait a minute. You're not a Doberman. Oh yeah? You got a Doberman? Well, no. Ya ever see a Doberman? No….Then…shuddup!

  • sedoanman

    "Elizabeth Warren cheated on affirmative action."

    Ward Churchills are everywhere.

  • benedetto t

    Anthropologists say that all humans now living (except people of sub Saharan African descent) have at least 1 to 4% Neanderthal genes. 4% = more than the 1/32 claimed by Warren. Ahm gonna apply to Hahvid , using my racial identity as a Neanderthal ( and my Penn BA +1330 GREs, 94 percentile scores). Hey! If they accept me (fat chance) I can write THE book. "A NEANDERTAL At HARVARD – LIFE IN A SUBSTANDARD CULTURE"
    (not that Penn is so hot).

    • kasandra

      Love it. Next stop – having Neanderthals listed as a "protected category" by EEOC.

  • Maxie

    For Liberals such as Warren it's all about simplistic feel-goodery. Facts just get in the way, especially if they make you have to use logic to explain things. Yuk!

  • Ghostwriter

    I wonder how real Indians feel about people like Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren? If I were one of them,I'd be angry that my heritage is being exploited so people like them can get jobs.

    • Schlomotion

      I feel that way about Jewish people as related to Zionists.
