|She who is NOT CHEROKEE|
She tweeted: ".....he came after me with a disgusting slur"
Well, maybe, especially after he called her "Pocahontas" who was a real Indian. Fauxcahontas, would imply she's a wannabe, a fake, an imposter. I have the link that details her ancestry that Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes did after the jump from a story in 2014.
Noted Cherokee attorney Stacy Leeds commented on Warren:
Elizabeth Warren needs to stop, too. When non-natives take identities that do not belong to them, they help create a myth-laden society that normalize the disrespect we saw yesterday. Just stop.
Remember in her 2012 campaign, when she REFUSED to meet with REAL Cherokees on her theft of ancestry? Remember we posted that Warren's pet agency the the CFPB harmed actual Indians? Yeah, that agency is back in the news again.
Trump has his own problems, created by himself. He should be adding to them by ill -timed jokes at events that deserve real honor and respect. And WARREN should own up to her lies, apologize and STOP...JUST STOP.
Democrat Senator Elizabeth "Fauxahontas" Warren writes in her new book that she was upset at being called out on her lies about her Cherokee Ancestors, and decried the work of Twila Barnes, called out as "some blogger" in exposing her.

What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” she writes about the 2012 Senate campaign. “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, (TWILA, is that YOU?) would launch a rocket at me.”
Perhaps the most hurtful and high-profile attack thrown against Warren by Brown had to do with her heritage.
At the height of the 2012 campaign, it was reported that Warren had listed herself as having Native American roots at Harvard University. Soon, there was a “full-blown campaign frenzy,” Warren recalls, with Republicans demanding that she prove her Native-American roots and accusing her of getting her job at the elite university by making false claims about her personal background.
Caught off-guard, Warren admits that she “fumbled” when reporters first asked her about the controversy.
Things only got worse when the Brown campaign asked whether her parents had lied to their children about her family. “He attacked my dead parents,” Warren writes. “I was hurt, and I was angry.”
Brown’s allegation that Warren had used her background to get ahead “simply wasn’t true,” she writes. “I was stunned by the attacks.”
Warren devotes a section of her book — called “Native American” — to this controversy, explaining that she had simply grown up learning about her Native American background from her family and that as a kid, she had never questioned her family’s stories or asked for documentation.
“Everyone on our mother’s side — aunts, uncles, and grandparents — talked openly about their Native American ancestry,” she wrote. “My brothers and I grew up on stories about our grandfather building one-room schoolhouses and about our grandparents’ courtship and their early lives together in Indian Territory.”
IRON EYES CODY wasn't an Indian either, he just played one in movies. Maybe now she feels the pain of what ACTUAL Indians are going through, being stripped of their citizenship and heritage. Could she become a champion of OUR cause?
