Elizabeth Warren has taken to describing her father as a janitor in an attempt to appear relatable to the working class. But according to the Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate’s brother, the claim is yet another of Warren’s self-serving exaggerations, and he isn’t happy about it.
A source close to one of Warren’s brothers, David Herring, has described the Oklahoma resident and Army veteran as “furious” over Warren’s account of their father, Donald Herring, working as a janitor. Warren has spoken on the campaign trail of an account in which her father lost a job as a salesman after a heart attack, and worked as a janitor in order to make ends meet for his family.
Herring has described his father as more of a maintenance worker than a janitor, being quoted as stating his father never worked as the latter.
Not that there’s anything wrong with being a janitor, of course. Having a father in the janitorial profession would lend strong working-class credibility to the Ivy League-educated lawyer.
But Warren shouldn’t claim her father was one in a deceptive attempt to booster her working class appeal when it appears he was more of a handyman. One might say those positions are synonymous, but the difference appears to be great enough in the case of Warren’s father that her brother has taken offense to her claim.
It appears from limited profiles of Warren’s brothers that they may actually trend conservative, and they aren’t a prominent presence in Warren’s campaign. The Massachusetts senator previously surged to a strong third place in Democratic primary polling, before falling back behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
It seems more exaggerated tales of her family history aren’t going to launch her back into serious contention for the nomination.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
