Actual Cherokees to Protest Fake Indian Lizzie Warren at Massachusetts Dem Convention

Posted by on Jun 01, 2012 at 7:22 am

Democrats love protesters, especially since they’re usually bought and paid for by them. But now in the wake of phony Indian Lizzie Warren’s crumbling campaign, a group of real Cherokees plan a protest Saturday at the Massachusetts state Democrat convention. Break out the popcorn.

Somehow I get the feeling this is one protest Democrats want no part of.

Native Americans — outraged by Elizabeth Warren’s admission yesterday that she told her Ivy League bosses about her purported tribal roots — accused the embattled Democrat of snubbing them and vowed to protest at tomorrow’s state convention even as she scrambled to placate supporters.

“If she really wanted to reach out to our native people and have a discussion about issues that are affecting us, then she needs to talk to our tribal media,” said Rhonda Levando Gayton, president of the Native American Journalists Association.

Rob Capriccioso, a reporter with Indian Country Today, said he has reached out to Warren’s campaign several times for an interview since May 15 and has been blown off. Capriccioso said there is a growing skepticism in Native American circles about Warren.

She blow noxious smoke out of peace pipe.

“Her ‘high cheekbones’ recollection, her failed Native networking while in academia and odd explanations of it, the possibility that Harvard promoted her as a Native professor without any documentation … and the attempts by her campaign to paint Indian concerns as a nonissue have all been problematic,” Capriccioso said.

“If elected a U.S. senator, she would be expected to know a lot about Native American issues that face Congress everyday, as highlighted in the Constitution, so her gaffes have been jarring for many Indians.”

Remember when Warren first claimed she pretended to be a Native American so she could meet other Native Americans? Well, now they want to meet her but she blows them off.

Meanwhile, as Warren rapidly approaches the cliff, Howie Carr piles on with yet another revelation of rank hypocrisy from this two-bit fraud.

    Does anyone remember the movie where a guy pretended to be black so that he could go o an Ivy league school? They should play the crap outta that movie right about now.

    The movie in question is “Soul man”, from 1986, and the character in question, ironically enough, was a rich white kid who posed as a black man to gain a scholarship admission to Harvard Law School!

    So I guess life does imitate art.

    With respect to Fauxcahontas, forget the fact that despite the 1/32 Cherokee claim put out by her shills, nobody has been able to document ANY Native American roots by her.

    Giving her the full benefit of the doubt, that maybe she was told this by her family even though it wasn’t true, if she herself actually believed she had some Native American roots, you’d think she’d be able to point to at least ONE meeting with Native Americans or a Native American student group at one point during her 20+ year academic career.
