Even people on the left are waking up to the fact that Elizabeth Warren is not a Native American and lied about it, too. She has somehow gotten away with this for years but the chickens are coming home to roost.
A real Cherokee woman named Rebecca Nagle wrote this column for Think Progress, a left wing publication!
Op-Ed: I am a Cherokee woman. Elizabeth Warren is not.
For 72 hours this week, news headlines focused on President Donald Trump’s offensive usage of the name “Pocahontas” when he referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at an event to honor Navajo Code Talkers on Monday.
As a young Cherokee woman, one would assume that I would take Warren’s side in standing up against Trump’s racist remark. Following the incident, Warren lambasted the president, telling MSNBC that Trump has done “this over and over thinking somehow he’s going to shut me up with it. It hadn’t worked in the past, it is not going to work in the future.”
A real Native American hero, right?
She was not a hero to me when she failed to foster a haven of support for Native students within Harvard University’s alienating Ivy League culture. She is not a hero for spending years awkwardly avoiding Native leaders. She is not a hero because, despite claiming to be the only Native woman in the U.S. Senate, she has done nothing to advance our rights.
She is not from us. She does not represent us. She is not Cherokee.
This situation is going to make it very difficult for Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2020.
No one believes the lie anymore.
