Elizabeth Warren: ‘I’m Not A Person of Color’

Published

on

The Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren conceded that she is not actually a person of color, undermining her longtime claim that she has trace amounts of Native American heritage, which she used to obtain a job at Harvard Law School that could have gone to a person of color.

The Washington Examiner reports: “I’m not a person of color. And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin,” Warren said at Morgan State, a historically black college in Baltimore, Md, according to the Washington Post.

Rush Limbaugh fielded a call from a woman named Susan who is one-sixteenth Cherokee, and who eloquently explained why Elizabeth Warren is not a Cherokee. (READ: Cherokee Nation Officially Rejects Warren: ‘Dishonoring Tribal Governments’).

Warren made a video with a Stanford genome researcher to promote a DNA test that stated it is possible that Warren might have a very small fraction of Cherokee ancestry — much smaller than is required for tribal membership, and a bit more than half of what the normal white American possesses according to the New York Times.

Here is the Rush Limbaugh transcript of Rush’s enlightening phone call with a 1/16

RUSH: Spring, Texas. This is Susan. It’s great to have you with us.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I am a transplanted Texan. I’m Sooner born, Sooner bred, and when I die, I’m Sooner dead. My great-great grandmother was a full blood Cherokee, and I’m calling via Barbra Streisand —

RUSH: Wait, wait. When you say you are Sooner born and bred, you are from Oklahoma?

CALLER: Absolutely.

RUSH: I just — but you say Sooner born and bred, people in Rio Linda think you’re saying that you’d just as soon be born than dead.

CALLER: No. I am a proud Oklahoman, and I love Texas, too, but my beginning was in Oklahoma. Fauxcahontas says her great-great grandmother was a Cherokee? Well, so was mine. We have, you know, family history, but I’m one-sixteenth Cherokee.

RUSH: Let me ask you a question. You’re one-sixteenth; so you are considered…? That’s a lot. You’re considered —

CALLER: That’s a lot.

RUSH: You’re considered Cherokee; right? So she is…? Her great-great-great… Three times. Great-great-great-grandmother, and she’s 1/1,024th, is she enough to become a Cherokee, to —

CALLER: No! I’m not —

RUSH: — become a member of the tribe?

CALLER: No. And this is the deal, Rush. My grandfather was one quarter. It was his grandmother. My mother was one-eighth. I am one-sixteenth. But if you are not on the Cherokee rolls, then the only tribe in Oklahoma that doesn’t do then. If you don’t… If you’re not on the rolls, and it was shameful.

RUSH: So what do you think she’s doing? What’s she doing with this, Susan?

CALLER: It’s Barbra Streisand, Rush. I’m a 16th. I’m 64 years old almost, in a few weeks. If she were… But it doesn’t matter if your mother or your grandmother or great-grandmother didn’t… The Cherokee are the only tribe in Oklahoma; you had to sign the rolls. And it was shameful for an Indian woman to marry a white man, and they wouldn’t sign up. It was shameful.

RUSH: What about the high cheekbones business? Is that —

CALLER: That’s baloney! I am one-sixteenth, Rush, and I can’t be a Cherokee, and I didn’t want enough their benefits. I was just kind of proud of it. But if your name is not on the roll, you are not a Cherokee —

RUSH: Well, it just goes to show… I mean, here you are one-sixteenth and you’re not eligible, is what you’re saying, if I’m hearing you right. She’s one of 1/1,024th. It’s all about the identity politics with those people. She wants that to say something significant about her. What would that be? I mean, it’s all silly, and these people denying that she used this for employment. I think that’s the sole reason she did it, to be able to demonstrate she had some minority blood to qualify her to be hired at Harvard.

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million

Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.

Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.

Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.

Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”

“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.

“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.

Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.

Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.

Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:

While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.

Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.

However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.

Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.

“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.

Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
