The Gospel According to Elizabeth

Pages: 1 2

When is a lie not a lie? When it is told by a liberal icon.

This is the message of supporters of the beleaguered Elizabeth Warren, the U.S. Senate hopeful whose baseless claims of Native American heritage have hurt her political career almost as much as it helped her academic career.

“Warren’s claim to be ‘part Indian’ is correct in mythical terms,” Bernie Quigley rationalizes at The Hill. “Every old-school white Oklahoman is in this regard even if this [is] nominally not true. But it is not a lie to want to be Indian and to imagine your ancestors were. It is to be free of Europeanism.” The Fourth Estate fanboy writes that Warren “brings a fresh, classical Americanism from the heartland back to us in Boston,” which he adds is “lucky” to have her.  “She adds stock and substance.”

The Harvard Law professor may add substance. But her devotees’ contorted embrace of the embarrassing ancestry yarn seems as readily explained by substances as any substance behind it. With proffered evidence of the Cherokee background of Warren’s great-great-great grandmother coming from the 21st century rather than the 19th, the already flimsy basis for the professor claiming minority status in an affirmative-action-obsessed academia now appears so obviously a careerist’s exploitation of identity politics. Just don’t tell that to the Warrenites, whose devotion to St. Elizabeth doesn’t allow for any inference of deception on her part.

When The American Prospect’s Robert Kuttner dubbed Warren a “progressive super-hero” last year, he may have knocked a progressive deity down a notch.Her fanatical acolytes have routinely put the cart before the horse, all but confirming Warren to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before President Obama had announced a nominee and launching several 2016 “Warren for President” sites before a vote had been cast in her senate race in Massachusetts. The New Republic’s Tiffany Stanley took notice in an article subtitled “Inside the cult of Elizabeth Warren.” She noted that “Warren commands a legion of loyalists apparently willing to rush, at a moment’s notice, to her defense,” an observation confirmed by Stanley’s subsequent experience of an inbox full of hate mail.

    The Left is intent on redefining the language, rewriting the rules, revising history, and even denying what our perfectly functioning eyes see on video, as in Obama's bowing to the Saudi King, which they immediately denied. In their minds, the only objectivity is their subjectivity, a political solipsism that leaves them bewildered and hapless when voters insist on truth or reality. Their response is inevitably more denial and bigger lies (if that is possible).

    Elizabeth Warren needs no more truth to her narrative than looking at herself in the mirror each morning and greeting herself, "Hi cheekbones." Fortunately for the sane citizens of this country, vigorous vetting has shined the truth on her imaginary composite identity and now Deer In the Headlights has nowhere to go but back to the insane echo chamber she came from, where her equally self-deluded friends will comfort her with a collective rant against all of us theoretical racists. Like her great-great-great grandfather before her, she has contributed to a trail of tears, but this time they are from laughter.

    “I hope Elizabeth Warren doesn’t back down on this, because wanting to be Indian, like [Natty Bumppo’s] Hawkeye, makes us in a deeper sense fully American.”

    When I was a boy, I did "want" to be a Lion. Does that "in a deeper sense" make me more fully Animal?

    I can picture this dolt spouting off with a straight face. Is there no shame left on the Left?

      In answer to that question "NO" there is not. She is a disgusting fool. She does not need to be something she is not. My Heritage runs deep in the Cherokee tribe, and she is a total disgrace for even the whites in this country. GO AWAY ELIZABETH–"THE GREAT LYING SPIRIT" OF THE WHITE CLAN.

        She is a fool, and a manipulative fraud. She wants to use a phony heritage to gain advantage over her own people, and take a job meant for a true Native American.

        Never trust a person who will lie and betray their own people by pretending to be something else. There is no integrity in that person, whether it is Warren or Obama.

        The same progressive mentality that led to the Trail of Tears, which her great-great-great grandfather participated in, is now showing up in her, generations later. Progressivism may be a genetic curse.

          true thanks for getting back to me. I feel the same way you do, and for all the people that do not know, what the "TRAIL OF TEARS" is. I will tell you it is a NATIONAL DISGRACE, and for anybody who does not care. You should. Because hundreds, if not thousands of people were tortured, and murdered at that time in Americas history, and for this piece of human scum to try, and make herself out to be a VICTIM is a total DISGRACE to all humanity, BUT ESPECIALLY TO THE NATIVE PEOPLES OF THIS NATION, AND THERE TRIBES, AND THERE NATIONS. YOU NEED TO GO AWAY, YOU LYING PIECE OF HUMAN SCUM WARREN.

    "Intense adoration doesn’t generally make a successful politician"__maybe it should read "intense self-adoration" as we're finding this narcissist tendency (plus the lying tendency, the control-freak tendency) seems to be quite common in liberal/leftist/dems and so prominent in the wh occupier… and yes, they do not make good politicians, but somehow we have a lot of them…

    • Gabee

      I would only disagree with one part of your fine post. The "narcissist tendency (plus the lying tendency, the control-freak tendency)," does indeed make one a very good politician it just precludes them from being statesmen/women. We do have too many politicians and not enough statesmen.

    While enjoying the protection of American Academe, ensconced behind ivy covered ramparts far from the rigors of actual intellectual effort, soaking up the accolades of the Harvard haute monde (the Band of The Quivering Thigh,) Squaw Warren speaks the language of the priesthood, disordering the thoughts of all within range of her voice.

    'Tis an odd time in the Commonwealth when her sort of nonsense fails to hold sway.

  • Ghostwriter

    It's a shame that real Cherokees aren't protesting this woman. If I were a member of that tribe,I'd be organizing protests against Ms. Warren on a regular basis.

    Old Cherokee Chief say white squaw Warren speak with fork tongue.

      But her "companions" love it!

  • Looking4Sanity

    "She adds stock and substance."

    Indeed. And down here on the farm, we call that "substance"…"bull$h!t".

    Do we REALLY need another lying liberal Democrat in the U.S. Senate?

    I think not.

    Cherokee seem to be the tribe most white people claim for some reason. I' m part Cherokee, though white,i know this because my grandfather raised my mother because her mother, who was part Cherokee, died of T.B. when mom was two.

    my grandfather had gone to California to get a job and get established there when his wife died. he wasn't informed of this by her family and when he returned to take his family back with him my grandmother's family had given his children away. furiously he said those are my kids and regained them.

    so all the time she was growing up mom was treated to her father referring to her mothers people as those god damned indians or those god damned hillbillies. and he said her mother had been part cherokee and her father had come from england.

    as a teenager when i met my grandmother's sister, she looked indian and had those black indian eyes, the blackest eyes i've ever seen and only seen on indians. and that's my story your honor about my indian heritage.
