Senator Elizabeth Warren made the rounds on Sunday professing her Cherokee ancestry. She repeated the story of how her ‘racist’ grandparents drove her parents to elope. The problem is that her stories are starting to fall apart, calling into question her credibility. She gave a bizarre answer on Sunday when asked about her heritage by basically saying it’s how she feels:
“I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me, and my brothers. It’s a part of who I am and no one’s ever going to take that away.”
Warren also refused a DNA test to prove her heritage. In other words, we’re supposed to just go with the FAMILY LORE because her parents told it even if it’s not true? There’s a name for that. It’s called delusion.
The problem with Warren’s desire to continue this story is that she used it to possibly fraudulently receive special treatment because of her minority status. In other words, a person who REALLY does have Cherokee heritage was prohibited from getting assistance because of Warren. We’ll be she never thought of that.
The left will say that it’s all about how Warrens feels. If she FEELS she’s of Cherokee heritage then we should go along with her delusion. It’s just like when Rachel Dolezal identified as black even though she’s white. Remember when Kaitlyn Jenner no longer wanted to be Bruce i.e. a male? Yes, we’re supposed to call him a woman even though he has a penis and is a man…Reality is just too much for the left. It’s how you feel…right?
Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes says that Senator Warren’s account of her grandparents being racist has its own credibility issues.
Ms. Barnes, who said her research into Ms. Warren’s family found “no evidence” of Native American ancestry, has challenged key elements of the senator’s tale of how her parents, Pauline Reed and Donald Herring, defied his parents by running off to marry.
“The problem with Warren’s story is that none of the evidence supports it,” said Ms. Barnes in a 2016 post on her Thoughts from Polly’s Granddaughter blog. “Her genealogy shows no indication of Cherokee ancestry. Her parents’ wedding doesn’t resemble an elopement. And additional evidence doesn’t show any indication of her Herring grandparents being Indian haters.”
Faced with renewed scrutiny over her heritage, however, Ms. Warren appeared Sunday on three morning news shows to give context to her claim of minority status made during her stints on the Harvard and University of Pennsylvania law faculties.
