One of the more disgusting behaviors of “Progressives” is their arrogant and often racist behavior mixed with claims of being supporters of civil rights. Seems those chickens have come home to roost for Lizzy Warren.
A group of protesters led by Cherokee Indians upset about Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s heritage claims are planning to protest outside the state Democratic Convention in Springfield on Saturday…In an email from Twila Barnes, an amateur Cherokee genealogist in Missouri who has taken the lead with a new website targeting Warren, it states that the Harvard Law School professor’s endorsement from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick was disrespectful to Native Americans in light of the controversy.
“Governor Deval Patrick’s recent support of her and his statement that this is a non-issue is an arrogant slap in the face and a direct attack on sovereignty and the Cherokee’s legal right to determine citizenship,” Barnes said in the email. “Elizabeth Warren and others like her must understand OUR history belongs to us and no one has the right to try to rewrite it or make up fictitious stories so they can fit in it or take advantage of it. Only those who meet the requirements under Cherokee law should claim to be Cherokee.”
When you claim to be a minority when you aren’t (BTW Lizzy’s claim that she was Cherokee was because she had a relative with dark hair and high cheekbones….yeah that’s it. Oh and that Harvard was looking for “Minority” professors at the time she first claimed to be Native American) the people who ARE take offense. And of course there’s the blatant abuse of affirmative action. I think its all racist crap, but it really takes the cake when its affirmative action over FAKE heritage.
For several weeks, Warren, who is fighting against Middleton immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco for the Democratic nod to take on U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., in November, has faced questions about whether she is actually Cherokee as she claimed she learned through family lore and whether she used her heritage to boost herself as an affirmative action hire.
Her opponent is a relative unknown and hasn’t been supported by the party the whole race, but this may be a VERY tough fight for Ms. Warren.
