Elizabeth Warren: Besides Being 1/32 Cherokee Indian, She Is Also 1/32 Related To Militia Member Who Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears…
The knife cuts both ways.
Via William Jacobson:
Throughout her career and political campaign, Elizabeth Warren has found victims everywhere she looked, including when she looked in the mirror and saw an alleged descendant of one of the most historically victimized groups, Native Americans.
In what may be the ultimate and cruelest irony, not only is it unlikely that Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was Cherokee, it turns out that Warren’s great-great-great grandfather was a member of a militia unit which participated in the round-up of the Cherokees in the prelude to the Trail of Tears.
One of the worst things about living in Mass right now is that Warren’s shrill campaign ads run around the clock.
