Warren: I wont deny who I am
Boston Globe ^ | June 1, 2012 | Brian McGrory

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 won’t deny who I am, I won’t deny my heritage, but I didn’t 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 I’m concerned,’’ she said. “I decided to run for the Senate because the middle class has been hammered and Washington doesn’t get it. I want to talk about Scott Brown’s voting record.

“He has worked hard to make this campaign about anything else, even my heritage, and he’s 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...

“In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues,’’ Warren said. “My father’s family so objected to my mother’s Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope.

Another whopper. It's like a compulsion.

First rule when you find yourself in a hole...

This is a devastatingly critical piece in the normally compliant Boston Globe. It comes the day before Massachusetts Democrats meet in convention in Springfield.

You can smell the flop sweat. Read the whole piece.

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.

You call this devastatingly critical. The Globe must really slobber over her then. It's pretty mild, but I guess that is subjective.

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.

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.

From the piece:

“In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues,’’ Warren said. “My father’s family so objected to my mother’s 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 mother’s heritage was to her. This was real in my life. I can’t deny my heritage. I can’t and I won’t. That would be denying who my mother was, who my family was, how we lived, and I won’t do it.’’

Asked what made her mother’s 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. It’s 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.

Gelzinis wrote essentially the same column in the Herald yesterday. Evidently it seems the Warren campaign is trying to do damage control with friendly columnists . . . and Warren is even coming up a fool with the friendlies.

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.

Warren is delusional she acts like her family grew up on the reservation.

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?

Harvard has been living off it's long standing reputation for decades. It is far more important for an applicant to list minority status than actually be at the top of their graduating high school class. Diversity is the key to donations from the wealthiest of the PC class. Hopefully, the cache of graduating from Harvard will soon fade. It should.
