Fake Indian Shoots Self in Head with Slow Bullet: Exit Warren Stage Left

Legal Insurrection writes the Warren Campaign Obituary: She tried to fake it, but America didn’t buy it Americans will nominate and elect all sorts of candidates, from the virtuous to the rogue. But Americans don’t like fakes. And there may never have been a more fake major candidate in modern American history than Elizabeth Warren.

Warren was not Native American, and never identified as Native American until she was in her 30s and climbing the law professor ladder to Harvard. Yet Warren used her supposed Native American identity to juice her resume and to land on a short list of “Minority Law Teachers” in a law professor directory used in the 1980s for hiring purposes. Warren also began to identify herself to employers as Native American. Miraculously, she rose from U. Texas to U. Penn to Harvard, despite lacking the legal pedigree (fair or not) usually required for that rise. It was a total ethnic deception.

Rather than own up, Warren claimed she believed her parents about her Native American heritage. “What kid asks their grandparents for legal documentation to go along with their family stories?”, she would ask when confronted. But Warren didn’t claim to be Native American as a kid, or in college, or in law school. She never lived as a Native American or associated with Native Americans. The cover story for why she made the claim, that she believed her parents, was as fake as the claim itself.

The family lore also was highly questionable. Warren claimed that her parents had to elope because her father’s white family would not accept her Native American mother. But by the time Warren told the story publicly in her campaigns, all the people who had first-hand knowledge were dead. Contemporaneous documentation regarding her parents’ wedding called the elopement story into serious doubt.

Yet Warren defended that deception from the time it was exposed in late April 2012 until the fall of 2018, when a disastrous DNA test rollout nearly cratered her nascent presidential campaign. Only then, having spent almost 7 years defending her claim to be Native American, did Warren issue a half-hearted, non-apology apology. As fake as her claim to be Native American was, the apology was worse.

Donald Trump branded Warren “Pocahontas,” and social media called her “Fauxcahontas” and other variations. Whether you approve of those terms or not, Warren was branded as a fake, and it stuck. She couldn’t shake it no matter how hard she tried because there was a core truth to it.

Then it was a drip, drip, drip of fakery exposed.

Warren was a faker. America doesn’t want a faker. New Hampshire killed her campaign. The Elizabeth Warren campaign epitah will be: “She tried to fake it, but American didn’t buy it.”

Warren’s campaign obituary has been written. It’s only a matter of time before her campaign capitulates to reality.

    I use grease on the poles that support our bird feeder. Just like this video, it works, and you get a lot of great laughs.

    How soon we forget. Nobody has matched the legend of Barry since baby Moses was floated down the Nile. We don’t begrudge a faker, we begrudge a bad effort.

    In a crowded field of low life losers, Warren is the most despicable. She’s a great example of why honest people aren’t politicians. The politicians lie then lie some more when they are caught. You and I might lie but will own up to it and move on. I couldn’t look in a mirror if I lied as much as she does.

    @joe, I tried that, then I saw greasy footprints on the vehicles, deck railings, all over the place.
    I bought a large metal bowl at the dollar store, drilled a hole in the middle, installed a band clamp on the pole, slid the upside down bowl down over the pipe, installed another band clamp over the bowl.

    @james, yes, that mystery has still not been revealed and it was on my mind while I read the durty injun thing.

    @Rick, amazing idn’t it? How the most important roles in this country always go to the worst people, and the higher they climb the ladder the worse they get. The most amazing part of all, to me, is how this clown wreck of american politics continues on. The longest run of the worst crimes in human history. It too will pass one day.

    And yet there were still the truly deluded who exclaimed that her 1/1024 Indian blood was proof that she was the real deal.

    The past few Christmases I have given one of the few left with whom I still exchange gifts a Droll Yankees “Yankee Flipper” bird feeder, and at least monthly receive a call from one of the recipients regaling me with hilarious tales of Sciurine hijinks.
