How clever! A Massachusetts Senate candidate has a new campaign slogan calling out his opponent for being a fake Indian: “Only a REAL INDIAN can defeat the fake Indian.”
The 54-year-old entrepreneur, Shiva Ayyadurai, who holds four degrees from MIT, recently plastered the slogan on a massive sign draped over a bus parked in front of an office building he owns about a mile from Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s home in Cambridge, Fox News reports.
The sign also features Ayyadurai’s headshot, alongside Warren’s mug wearing a Native American headdress.
Ayyadurai had two signs up before this NEW “Fake Indian” sign that he put up on March 17th. There was not a peep from the city on those signs. When he put up his NEW “fake Indian” campaign slogan, officials threatened him with $300 per day in fines over alleged zoning violations.
“This is a political vendetta by city officials who are supporters of Elizabeth Warren,” Ayyadurai, who was born in Bombay, India, told The Washington Times.
“They didn’t say anything when we had the first sign,” he said. “It was only when we put up, ‘Only a real Indian can defeat the fake India,’ so it’s clearly trying to censor speech.”
Ayyadurai said the banner isn’t coming down, and he’s now suing the city in federal court over free-speech violations.
“We will not remove the slogan from our bus,” he said. “We will defend the First Amendment, and we will fight this egregious attack on the First Amendment, at any cost.”
HERE’S OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON LIZ WARREN’S CHARADE AS A CHEROKEE INDIAN:
For anyone who still holds out hope that Senator Elizabeth Warren has Indian roots, here’s the truth. It doesn’t get more truthful than this interview with Twila Barnes. Tucker Carlson interviewed the Cherokee Genealogist:
The Tucker Carlson Tonight reports:
Tucker: Is Elizabeth Warren a Cherokee Indian?
Barnes: No. She’s not enrolled. She has no family on the rolls, she has no indication of Indian ancestry anywhere in her lineage.
Tucker: What do you know about [the parents’ elopement story], is that true?
Barnes: I don’t believe it’s true. They were married by a prominent minister in a town just maybe 15 miles away…. I don’t think he would have done a wedding for two kids that ran away an eloped and their parents didn’t approve. Also, Elizabeth Warren’s father, he had at least one brother and one sister who also just went and had small weddings the same way. I just think it’s the way their family did things at the time. I don’t think it was an elopement.
Tucker: There’s a lot of American Indians in Oklahoma, what do they think of these claims?
Barnes: Well I can’t speak for all of them, I could speak for the ones that I talk to. Some just laugh, because it’s so ludicrous. I mean, you know, she has no proof of anything. She’s a lawyer, and she’s supposed to understand you need proof, yet she keeps claiming. Many are angry because they feel like she’s appropriating an identity to gain something from that. And she has no respect for true Native Americans.”
Tucker: I think all of that’s true, it’s identity theft, there’s no doubt.
