“Someone tried to pull a Warren in AZ”

“Someone tried to pull a Warren in AZ”

“To pull a Warren”

I think we have us a new — what’s the word — descriptor for falsely claiming minority status.

Via The Daily Caller:

A Democratic congressional candidate in Arizona is facing questions about why she is mysteriously and falsely being listed as a Hispanic in a prominent Latino group’s directory of officeholders.

This could be problematic for the candidate, Kyrsten Sinema, because the National Association of Latino Elected (NALEO) and Appointed Officials claims it verifies the information with the officeholders before going to print.

The revelation that NALEO’s 2011 “National Directory of Latino Elected Officials” lists Sinema, a former Democratic state senator, as a Hispanic first surfaced Monday on the website of the Phoenix New Times.

Sinema spokesman Rodd McCleod denied that the candidate self-identified as a Latina. “It’s not our mistake,” McCleod told the Phoenix New Times. “It’s NALEO’s mistake.”

But a NALEO official told the outlet that the information came from Sinema or her office. “We rely heavily on self-identification,” NALEO’s Rosalind Gold said.

This is similar not only to the law faculty directory as to which Warren admits filling out forms as Native American which put her on the list of “Minority Law Teachers,” but also the verification method used by the Harvard Women’s Law Journal which put Warren on the list of “Women of Color in Legal Academia.”

Bonus question: Will ethnic fraud by a Democrat matter more in Arizona than in Massachusetts?

No. The word “Democratic” clearly connoting SOSDD*.

*Same Old Sh!t, Different Democrat.

Solidarność !!

They are all people of color now.

Awfully high correlation between people pulling these sorts of stunts (that is, stunts involving LYING) and people who are members of the Democratic Party.

“Your taxes won’t go up.”

“Of course you can keep your insurance.”

“Yes, you can trust me; I’m from the government.”

No. The fact that a Democrat committed ethnic fraud will not matter any more to Democrat voters in Arizona than it does in Massachusetts. There is a simple reason for this:

Democrats will ALWAYS make ethics subservient to winning because winners get their agenda passed. They would rather win in disgrace than lose with honor.

Democrat candidates lie about their goals because they know that to tell the truth about their goals is to be shunned by the vast majority of the American citizenry who abhor the “progressive” culture. Democrat candidates lying about who they are in order to get elected is just a subset of the lies told to the public in order to bamboozle the public into voting an individual into office who will pursue an agenda the public does not want.

    Another reason, Chuck, is that Collectivists are all about race, or identity, politics and world-view. Individuals are not even seen…or important. They look at groups.

    Since they live by delusion, and all truth is malleable, they can be anything they feel like being.

“She has also raised eye brows with comments, including her admission in 2003 that she once partook in a “pagan” dance during an anti-war protest rally.”

So.. unlike the unfortunate and much maligned Christine O’Donnell…

SHE IS A WITCH!

    DC also notes that if elected she would be the first openly bisexual member of Congress. So maybe she thought that bisexual means she is both a blonde light-skinned caucasian AND Latina?

Yet another case of ethnic fraud.

A challenge for readers, particularly progressives who may be keeping tabs on the good Professor —

— can anyone show me a case of a Republican office holder/seeker who is committing ethnic fraud? That is, one who is claiming to be a minority when in fact he or she is not?

I’m sure if it’s happened the MSM will be all over it so one won’t have to look hard.

I’m searching for a Native American tribe with no records so I can give my family some “minority status” to throw around.

    Go with Lumbee Tribe, NC. They are recognized by the State of NC, but not by the federal government* and are by definition of mixed races consisting of European, African-American, and Siouan speaking Indian ancestry.

    *The federal government recognized their existence in 1956, but did not place them on the list of ‘official’ Native Americans like Cherokee, Apache, Navajo, etc., nor are they eligible for the usual federal services and benefits.

My apologies if this is somewhat tasteless for this venue, but my daughter’s boyfriend told me something he heard in a workout center locker room:

“Hey, man. Whatcha been up to?”

“Oh, not much. Just jerkin’ the Biden.”

What makes one Hispanic anyway? Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics can be of any race. It is not language because many Hispanics only speak English. It is not country of birth because many Hispanics have been in this country for generations. Is someone born and living in Barcelona Hispanic?

If an person, no matter what their race, is born and raised in a location where the primary culture is Hispanic, wouldn’t they be ethnically Hispanic? What constitutes an ethnicity? Are Mexican indigenous peoples who speak no Spanish and have maintained most of their pre-conquest culture Hispanic?

    Henry Hawkins in reply to Anchovy. | July 10, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Just so. Hispanics are considered an ethnic subset of either white or black (according to the state and federal forms I have to fill out on clients, anyway).

    Ragspierre in reply to Anchovy. | July 10, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Good points, Anchovy! But I would argue that “Hispanic” is a silly term that actually describes nothing…not even “ethnicity”.

    For instance, the people of Brazil; they are not even ethnically homogenous by a LONG shot. The European influence is dominantly from Portugal, and THEY are not Spanish.

    The Dominicans were heavily influenced by the French, and so on.

No, fraud won’t register with the Dems. No, wait! Frauds do register with the Dems.

In the “People Not Caring” section – Has any one seen our beloved Ill. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.? Is he out of the country looking for his mojo? If he is then I wish he would have taken Eric Holder with him. They both need to give us a break.

JAMES EARL JONES: I think I have figured out the Tea Party I think I I do understand racism because I was taught to be one by my grandmother. My grandmother was part Cherokee/Choctaw Indian part black, she hated everybody and she taught all of her children and grandchildren to be racist to hate white people and to distrust black people.

DR CORNEL WEST: Who does she love then?

JAMES EARL JONES: Nobody

WEST: Nobody at all.

JAMES EARL JONES: But that allowed me to figure it out for myself. And I think I know what racism is better than anyone who has ever been a racist.

    JEJ. Another morbidly stupid entertainer. As much sense as believing movie theater popcorn attendants are Racist because they sell pale-hued kernels.

    jakee308 in reply to Neo. | July 11, 2012 at 12:43 am

    Screw James Earl Jones.

    Another racist flushed out by Obama. Showing his own racism by the racially motivated defense of an anti american marxist.

    Who by the way if is successful will force Mr Ray to leave the country or else have his wealth confiscated to aid his skin brothers.
