The hapless Lizzie Warren continues to flail about wildly, unable to distance herself from her nonstop lies.
On their first day in the Hub, a group of Cherokees hoping to confront Elizabeth Warren over her Native American heritage claims blasted the Democrat for trying to dismiss the ancestry controversy as a non-issue in the Bay State U.S. Senate race.
“Poverty, teen suicide, our health care system,” said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes in an interview today with the Herald. “Those are issues and those are the people she stepped on and used to benefit and now she says it’s not an issue. Well, of course, to her it’s not an issue because she doesn’t want to address that she did this.”
Ali Sacks, a Cherokee from Warren’s home state of Oklahoma, had harsher words: “It’s cowardly to ride the coattails of people who have lost so much for your own benefit and not accomplish what you can accomplish on your own benefits. I think it’s shameful and extremely disrespectful not just to Cherokees but to all tribes who have given so much to this country historically and lost so much.”
Four Cherokee women are in Boston for four days hoping to arrange a meeting with Warren. A spokeswoman for the Warren campaign told the Herald Sunday a staff member would greet the group, but the women told the Herald this morning they’ve still heard nothing from the campaign.
“What is wrong with sitting down with the people she claims to be a part of?” said Sacks. “That’s all we’d like to do — educate her. She has the same opportunity to educate us if we’re the wrong ones. But she runs and avoids because she knows there’s nothing to back her claims.”
Warren claims she’s 1/32 Cherokee and listed herself as a minority so she could meet others just like her. Except now she wants no part of them. Meanwhile, Warren now blames blogger William Jacobson for some nefarious plot against her, because he donated a few bucks to Scott Brown two years ago and, well, he’s been owning her for months now.
Both Brown’s campaign and the Cherokees, who said they lean left politically, have denied the Brown campaign put them up to it. Harney referred to Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson, who runs the conservative blog Legal Insurrection and contributed $500 to Brown during the special Senate election two years ago.
Jacobson, who has been in touch with the Cherokee activists and set up some media interviews for them, declined to comment when asked whether he was providing them with any financial support. The Cherokee group said it’s doing some fundraising — taking in about $160 from Facebook — but denied they’ve received any money from Republican groups or activists.
“There’s no political funds, there’s no Republican funding of us, there are no free meals or stays, lodging, none of that,” Sacks said. “This isn’t a Republican vs. Democrat issue.”
Further demolishing Warren’s desperate claim is this:
They insisted they have received no financial backing from U.S. Sen. Scott Brown or Republicans. Sacks said she is a registered Democrat and Barnes said she is a left-leaning independent who voted for Obama in 2008, U.S. Sen. John Kerry in 2004 and “has never voted for a Bush in my life.”
To be sure, Howie Carr cannot get enough of this fiasco.
So much of her life story doesn’t stand up under scrutiny, but here is one thing we do know for sure about Elizabeth “Granny” Warren.
She was the 1966 Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow at Northwest Classen High School in Oklahoma City.
That’s right, we’re talking about the Betty Crocker, symbol of Caucasian cuisine. Not Betty Crock, who would seem a more appropriate role model for the fake Indian plagiarist.
After her glorious victory, Granny received a letter from “Betty Crocker” herself. Hers was probably a lot like this one, from a year earlier:
“You have already taken a big step toward a fine success in school and work and a happy life as a real-life homemaker someday — the most important career a woman can have.”
More important than providing the “intellectual foundations” of Occupy Wall Street? More important than … checking the box as a Native American, which Granny isn’t?
The only thing authentic about about this woman is she’s a female. As far as we know.
