We really don’t have the patience to listen to one more bleeding-heart liberal tell us how terrible it is that the Washington Redskins are still using that name. Because we haven’t seen any of these people – so saddened about the horrible plight of the gentle Native American – speak up about Elizabeth Warren’s continued claim of Indian heritage in defiance of a complete lack of credibility or evidence.
No, instead they get all riled up about President Trump’s hilarious use of the nickname “Pocahontas,” as if THAT is the problem. They even have the indecency to call it a “racial slur,” as if Warren really were straight off the reservation.
Folks, this woman is as white as a woman can be. Let’s be serious here.
Yet she REFUSES to back down. And if there is any justice in the world, it will play a part in costing her the Senate seat she holds so dearly.
“You know, my mom and dad were born and raised out in Oklahoma, and my daddy was in his teens when he fell in love with my mother,” said Warren in an interview with Fox News this weekend. “She was a beautiful girl who played the piano. And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. And his family was bitterly opposed to that because she was part Native American.”
This is the story Warren supposedly got from her parents, and that’s all the evidence she needed to claim Native American ancestry while looking for tenure at Harvard. To any other rational person, this would not be worth making a political saga out of. She could easily just say, “Hey, I made a mistake, I’m not a Native American, carry on” and let the chips fall where they may. It might not stop Trump from calling her Pocahontas, but at least she is no longer actively offending people who have a true claim to that ancestry.
Instead, she just keeps singing the same tune. She has no genealogical evidence. She refuses to take a DNA test. There is no one who will back up her claim to have Cherokee blood. Yet she’s going around to Native American leaders to plead her case, hoping that she can convince some of them to get on her side. And we’re sure, if offered the right political favors, they will.
But that won’t change the fact that she’s a fake Indian who is making a mockery of real Native Americans every day that she perpetrates this absurd lie.
