Skip to comments.Warren: ‘I won’t deny who I am’
Posted on 06/01/2012 5:00:38 AM PDT by billorites
She has given clumsy answers, evaded questions, and for five weeks running allowed the story of her undocumented Native American ancestry to consume the entire Senate campaign in Massachusetts.
Thursday afternoon, my phone rang with Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on the other end of the line, ready to talk. Finally.
On the phone, she spoke sometimes expansively and without the slightest hint of apology about her conviction that she has maternal roots from the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. I know who I am, Warren said. I know my heritage.
A moment later, in response to a question over whether she took any professional advantage of her self-identification as Native American, she said, I wont deny who I am, I wont deny my heritage, but I didnt ask for anything because of it.
Warren conceded for the first time that she is worried about how the issue of her self-identification as a Native American - which first surfaced in a Boston Herald story on April 27 - has overwhelmed virtually all other aspects of the campaign.
Of course Im concerned, she said. I decided to run for the Senate because the middle class has been hammered and Washington doesnt get it. I want to talk about Scott Browns voting record.
He has worked hard to make this campaign about anything else, even my heritage, and hes not spending time on what Massachusetts voters are concerned about, she said.
And so it went for the duration of a 30-minute telephone conversation, one in which Warren repeatedly and adamantly proclaimed that the law schools at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania hired her as a professor because of her scholarship and teaching abilities, not to improve diversity on their faculties.
Both schools listed her on federal labor forms as Native American...

Another whopper. It's like a compulsion.
First rule when you find yourself in a hole...
I wouldn’t believe this phony if she told me the sun rises in the east.
EW, you are a no-good two bit wanna be $^^&*&%$#, that is who you is.
You can smell the flop sweat. Read the whole piece.
Both schools listed her on federal labor forms as Native American...isn’t it against the law to lie on these forms??
Sorry, I forgot, we have laws we don’t bother to enforce.
Hey when whitey thinks that one of your uncles has high cheek bones, there is no limit to their hate.
I smellum buffalo chips.
That picture is perfect because he had no Indian ancestory either. A total fraud who benefitted by playing Indians all his life in film.
Better put to say that we have so many laws criminalizing everything, that the Feds can always find something to use when the "right person" needs to be taken out.
Luckily for theses schools, they stay in line and do the Feds bidding, so they don't have anything to worry about.
Been lying on those forms all my life. Stupid me, I have been checking “white” or “Caucasian” the whole time.
Obviously she’s been advised that “I won’t deny who I am” and “I know who I am” are phrases that tested well with focus groups.
She probably got this information from DNC (or maybe White House) political consultants in the last 24 hours or so.
I guess we can conclude that they’re not pulling the plug on her yet.
Her pride goes before the fall.
That is because Scott Brown is one of them. I realize he is about the best we can do in Mass-of-Chute-Sex, but let’s not mistake him for a conservative that the Boston Globe would have any reason to go after.
It's good to be an Indian!
In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues, Warren said. My fathers family so objected to my mothers Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope.
As kids, my brothers and I knew about that. We knew about the differences between our two families. And we knew how important my mothers heritage was to her. This was real in my life. I cant deny my heritage. I cant and I wont. That would be denying who my mother was, who my family was, how we lived, and I wont do it.
Asked what made her mothers family distinctly Native American, Warren laughed and replied, It was exactly what I said. Asked again, she responded, One side was Cherokee and the other side was Delaware. I never had any reason to doubt them. I never asked for any documentation. Its who we were.
It's official: She's insane.
There's not a shred of evidence to prove this woman is Native American, and yet she insists on piling the lies higher and higher and higher, giving any reporter on the face of the planet yet another opportunity to open up a new front on her.
And this woman is a professor at Harvard Law School?
Evidently, such a lofty position doesn't require a shred of integrity.
As I type ,I’m listening to our local Boston talk show. The guest is Jeff Kuhner and he and host Todd Feinburg are now discussing Warren buying and flipping foreclosed houses!
You go, chief squatting bull!
Have you any details?
Lieawatha keeps stepping in her cow pile of lies, but hey....she’s a Democrat....it’s what they DO!
I just read an article on FR about this...look it up.
Harvard’s motto is “Veritas”.....”truth”.....they’re going to need a new motto.
All jokings aside, this woman has tenacity (or an oblivious sense of entitlement), I’ll give her that.
Any R candidate would have bowed out by now.
“I wont deny who I am”
Oohh. Then she’s *admitting* she is a liar. That’s who she is, after all.
Howie Carr has a column about this , today.
“Both schools listed her on federal labor forms as Native American...isnt it against the law to lie on these forms??
Sorry, I forgot, we have laws we dont bother to enforce.”
Obama and Holder have publicly stated they will selectively enforce the law. The rule of law in this country has become political. There are so many laws in existence a government can easily find one with which to crush any individual citizen. By selectively choosing which laws to enforce and which not with respect to individuals, the government can keep its citizens in line and reward its supporters. The phrase, “Equal Justice Under Law” is meaningless.
The only thing the primary candidate has to say is if she gets away with this lie, imagaine what she will do once she hits Washington.
She can blame it on the firewater
No, you don’t deal in truth. You deal in name-calling, just like a middle-schooler. Big wow.
When Elizabeth Warren loses at the polls will she blame it on racism? Seriously though, who wants this mentally disturbed person in office? She’s batty.
She is a democrat which means she has no shame.
Blind too I see....
She’s unfit to hold public office. Which means she’ll be elected in a landslide.
Does anyone think Warren could get away with claiming to be Black if her family lore said some distant relative was descended from slaves and had dark complexion? Why should it be any different for claiming to be Native American?
Actually, it's the perfect motto for them. Really brassy liars always self-advertise as being made of truth.
This whole adventure is an useful object lesson.
The government’s absurd method of inventorying people into political groups is being exposed.
Love the side by side photos of white Hispanic and her blue eyed blond Native American picture.
