Elizabeth Warren denies she claimed to be a Native-American to advance her career

May 3, 2012

  Scott Brown’s most likely opponent in the November election is a white woman named Elizabeth Warren who has recently come under attack for claiming she was a Native-American when she enrolled herself in law school directories.

  Harvard University has used Elizabeth Warren as an example of their racial and gender diversity when the university was fending off accusations that school staff were mainly white males, yet Elizabeth Warren continues to deny she claimed she was a minority to help advance her career.

  Today she attempted to explain why she claimed she was a minority and this is what she said:

“I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it and so I stopped checking it off

  She simply wanted to meet people who were like her and maybe have lunch with them. The thought that liberal policies such as affirmative action might help her–as a listed minority–get her a job never occurred to this liberal. It was a simple misunderstanding and it only took her 10 years of not being invited to hang out with other Native-Americans at lunchtime to realize that it wasn’t working, so she then stopped claiming minority status. Of course, by the time she stopped calling herself a minority her minority status had already helped her advance her career. What a coincidence!

    Two questions:

  Does anyone believe this inane excuse? And, why was she so interested in only meeting people who were like her? It seems like she would have wanted to meet people who were not like her in the interest of celebrating diversity.

  Maybe the answer to the second question is that if she did manage to have lunch with Native-Americans it would have been a diverse meeting after all; while Elizabeth Warren’s campaign claims she is 1/32 Native-American because her great-great-great-grandmother is part Cherokee genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society have not been able to find any link whatsoever.

  While the genealogists haven’t been able to find proof of Elizabeth Warren’s Native-American roots the beleaguered Senatorial candidate offers us her own proof:

These are my family stories, I have lived in a family that has talked about Native American and talked about tribes since I was a little girl

  There you have it! Elizabeth Warren’s family told her stories about her Native-American heritage so it must be true. If this is enough proof for Elizabeth Warren than I suppose it should be good enough for the voters of Massachusetts, after all she wouldn’t be lying about this would she?

    Most everyone I know how have native American ancestors are proud of that fact. I’m 1/32 Choctaw and often relate that fact to others when the topic comes up. But for one to claim Indian heritage when there is none in order to gain some advantage whether real or just imagined is insulting to those of us that have native american blood. Elizabeth Warren broke no laws I know of, but making this claim in order to advance her career is nothing short of disgraceful and reflects a major character flaw that I’m sure will not go unnoticed by the voters in her state. It was a dumb thing to do, although I bet she thought it cool at the time. You will reap what you sow, Liz!

      It is coming back to haunt her now and she is struggling to explain it. But if she falsified applications I do think a crime may have been committed.

    Personally, I don’t care one way or the other, if she is great, if she is not great, I don’t care. Being as progressive as she is, maybe she “might” have a tendency to tell one of those “un-truths”? Well, she could, you know!

      Maybe she just “misremembered” the facts of her background.

      Under Hitler’s rule, both Roma and Jews were defined as “enemies of the race-based state” by the Nuremberg laws; the two groups were targeted by similar policies and persecution, culminating in the near annihilation of both populations within Nazi-occupied countries.
      …The German government paid war reparations to Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, but not to the Romani. There were “never any consultations at Nuremberg or any other international conference as to whether the Sinti and Roma were entitled like the Jews to reparations.”[15] The Interior Ministry of Wuerttemberg argued that “Gypsies [were] persecuted under the Nazis not for any racial reason but because of an asocial and criminal record.”[16] When on trial for his leadership of Einsatzgruppen in the USSR, Otto Ohlendorf cited the massacres of Romanis during the Thirty Years War as a historical precedent.
