Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has a serious problem, and it just won’t go away.  She tried explaining that her high cheekbones, family lore, and Pow-wow Chow recipes meant that she was Native American; she issued denials that she claimed Native American heritage status for years; she tried partnering with Native Americans on gambling rights; and now she’s trying out support for reparations for Native Americans in the vain hope this one will fly . . . and disappear her decades-long ethnic fraud problem.

For almost two decades she presented herself as Native American in a wide (and widening) array of professional documents.   During her political career, Warren has repeatedly denied any wrong-doing with regard to her ethnic fraud, and she even went so far as to take a DNA test and to proudly announce the results, hoping against hope that this would finally put her Native American problem to rest.

She’s also apologized to Cherokee Nation for the enormous insult she heaped upon them by taking the DNA test in the first place, and she’s even flip-flopped on the issue of gambling to attempt to escape her “fake Indian” brand, asserting her surprising support for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s gambling resort.

Warren has a problem, and she is desperate to make it go away as she attempts to be the last Democrat standing going into the 2020 presidential election.

Stacey wrote about 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls enthusiastically embracing the idea of racial reparations, and she notes that this is not a winning issue for Democrats.

Consider this as well: While you’d think reparations in theory would be a winning issue for Democrats during the primaries, results from a January poll suggest primary voters are looking for someone “electable” who could beat Trump.

With the thought in mind that reparations do not sit well with nearly 70% of the American people, would a Democrat contender who thinks making the case for reparations a focal point of both their primary and general election campaigns be considered “electable” to their base voters?

Racial reparations are a tricky issue, as anyone who watches Finding Your Roots on PBS can attest.  It seems that most Americans have more minority DNA than Warren has Native American.

But Warren has a problem to disappear, so she’s now expanding the racial reparations net to include Native Americans.

The Hill reports:

Warren is so far the only 2020 candidate to float the notion of reparations for Native Americans.

“I think it’s a part of the conversation,” she said when asked whether they should receive some kind of relief. “I think it’s an important part of the conversation,” she added, according to the Post.

Asked to explain her position on reparations, Warren offered few details but pointed to America’s “ugly history” of racism and pointed to her bill to address housing discrimination against black Americans, the paper reported.

“America has an ugly history of racism,” Warren told attendees, according to the paper. “We need to confront it head-on. And we need to talk about the right way to address it and make change.”

“I have a housing bill that talks about more recent forms of discrimination which we also need to address head-on,” she continued.

Gee, I wonder why “Warren is so far the only 2020 candidate to float the notion of reparations for Native Americans”?
