It’s bad enough that people already are talking about Elizabeth Warren being a serious candidate for President in 2016, President Elizabeth Warren:
Few people have a better and more appealing story and background to seize that opportunity than Elizabeth Warren.
Which “more appealing story and background” would that be?
The one in which she falsely claimed Native American status in the Association of American Law School directories, which were used as a hiring resource, so that she supposedly could meet others like her for lunch? Or the one in which she falsely reported herself to Harvard and Penn Law Schools as Native American for federal reporting purposes even though she didn’t meet the federal definition? Or the one which which she accused her father’s family of being racist against Indians such that her parents had to elope, even though all the evidence is that there was no elopement or anti-Indian racism? Or the one in which ….
Everyone knows she’s not Native American.
So you can imagine my shock when I saw this quote from Michael Barone in The Boston Herald in a column by Michael Graham, Leftie Liz on Obama’s path to prez?
If she does run, she could make history, said Barone: “She’d be the first Native American in the White House since Vice President Charles Curtis, who was one-quarter Kaw Indian.”
What!?! Shirley he can’t be serious. And he’s not, providing me with this clarification:
It was intended as a humorous comment.
We have to be careful when it comes to Warren’s false claim to be Native American.
While Warren’s ridiculous explanations are humorous, her conduct in assuming a Native American identity solely for employment and career purposes was not funny.
Joke carefully, there could be children watching, children who will never be taught the truth about the progressive hero, and possible presidential contender.
