Warrens Native American problem is only going to get worse

If you had any doubt that Sen. Elizabeth Warren has her eye on the White House, it was dispelled this past weekend when she showed up on the Sunday morning talk shows to say she wasn’t running for president.

By issuing a deliberately non-Shermanesque denial, Warren signaled her strong interest in 2020. But while the former law professor has learned to speak Washington doubletalk like a native, her other tribal connections — or lack thereof — may yet trip her up.

Rather than retracting or apologizing for past assertions of Native American identity that have been refuted by genealogists and historians, the Massachusetts Democrat is doubling down on her story about being a Cherokee or a Delaware.

Last month, The Post dared her to take a DNA test to prove her story and now a Bay State paper (The Berkshire Eagle) has issued the same challenge. The test results would either compel critics like President Donald Trump to stop calling her “Pocahontas” or force her to admit it was all a lie.

But while Warren won’t take the test, she also won’t shut up about being a Native American. On the Sunday shows, she repeated the story she’s been telling for years about her parents’ epic romance in which her father’s family opposed the match because of her mother’s supposed Indian ancestry.

2. What really pisses me off is that if a Republican had done what she had done

they would roast him/her alive but they give her a pass.

3. That's because a Republican faking their race is a fraud while a Democrat is merely transracial.

5. I posted this in another thread, but it puts the whole lie to rest

In Warren's case, the claim is that one of her ancestor's brothers got married, and on his marriage certificate, he lists his mother as Cherokee. But when you look at the certificate, there is no such claim. In fact, nobody's race is listed on the certificate, and further research of the mother reveals that her parents were white.

Besides, interracial marriages were illegal in Tennessee. In fact, they still are! Tennessee has never updated their state law that ruled interracial marriage illegal. This may have been a simple oversight, since Loving vs. Virginia in 1967 overruled state legalities.

The parents in question were married on 15 Sep 1819 in Tennessee. Had it been an interracial union, there would be no marriage certificate for the parents or the son whose marriage certificate the lie is based on.

The media, however, when corrected, continued to spread the lie.

"Never let the truth get in the way of a good story" is what they say in the media.

6. Her narrative...

I believe is to present herself as the perfectly diverse candidate, one who has overcome the trials and tribulations of a life in the racist South to become a shining beacon to a liberal world view.

Why would she give a rat's ass about what a bunch of extremist gossipers think of her heritage?
