Sen. Liz Warren’s hometown paper pokes and haunts her Cherokee heritage

Published

on

The senior senator from Massachusetts is the subject of a front-page-above-the-fold report in today’s Boston Sunday Globe that reopens the cold case of her claim to have Cherokee  heritage.

Although the Globe repeatedly endorsed and celebrated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.), the paper has not shied from reporting that in 1997 Warren was called Harvard University Law School’s “first women of color,” by the school’s communications department and that for the six years Warren was a tenured professor, Harvard told the federal government in official filings that Warren as a Native American.

Warren compounded the error, when she submitted a Cherokee crabmeat recipe to the Pow Wow Chow cookbook, a 1984 collection of meals from the Five Civilized Tribes: Creek, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw and Seminole.

The young law professor represented it as a traditional meal–a traditional mean with instructions exactly the same as a French chef’s own crabmeat recipe for Cold Omelets and Crab Meat.

Now, Warren is a U.S. senator and a potential candidate for president in 2020, which means this Cherokee business has to be worked out, since there is not evidence that Warren is anymore Cherokee than President Donald J. Trump.

Today’s Globe piece lays it out such:

“I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe.

But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom. She’s taken flak from the right for years as a “fake Indian,” including taunts from President Trump, who derisively calls her “Pocahontas.’’ That clamor from the right will only grow with her increasing prominence.

And, more telling, there’s also discomfort on the left and among some tribal leaders and activists that Warren has a political blind spot when it comes to the murkiness surrounding her story of her heritage, which blew up as an issue in her victorious 2012 Massachusetts Senate race. In recent months, Daily Show host Trevor Noah mocked her for claiming Native American ancestry and the liberal website ThinkProgress published a scathing criticism of her by a Cherokee activist who said she should apologize.

As Warren is mentioned as a serious presidential contender in 2020, even some who should be her natural allies say Warren has displayed a stubborn unwillingness to address the gap between the story she was told of Native Americans in the family tree and a dearth of hard evidence to back it up.

Interesting, the reporter, Annie Linskey, writes for the paper’s Washington bureau and is best known for her willingness to write negative stories about Hillary R. Clinton, who is a fellow graduate of Wellesley College.

In March, when Linskey Tweeted that Clinton is running for president, Nick Merrill, the press secretary for the former first lady’s 2016 campaign used direct language in his reply.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol

Guilt by association.

Published

on

Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.

Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.

Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.

Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
