The tables have turned on Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Like many leftists, Elizabeth Warren goes to great lengths to try to appeal to both gender and racial minorities.
But in her desperate attempt to gain favor among one of the nation’s key minorities, she merely made a fool of herself and lost all respect from the group.
Warren recently expressed outrage over a joke made at her expense by President Trump during a ceremony honoring Navajo veterans.
But now Warren is the one under fire for her comments–and the situation is ironic, to say the least.
Rebecca Nagle, a Cherokee woman of mixed heritage, is furious at Senator Warren’s claim that she has Native American heritage when Warren has shown no irrefutable proof of her claim.
During the ceremony to commemorate Navajo veterans, President Trump called out Senator Warren’s false heritage– jokingly calling her “Pocahontas.”
Now, Rebecca Nagle is making sure Warren is held accountable for her “racist slurs” and appropriated heritage.
The Daily Caller reported:
Rebecca Nagle, a mixed woman of Cherokee heritage, slammed Warren for doubling down on her alleged Cherokee background after President Donald Trump referred to her as “Pocahontas” at a ceremony earlier this week in a Wednesday op-ed for Think Progress.
“In defending her supposed Native identity, Warren has drawn from both racist stereotypes and easily refutable stories about her family. At a 2012 press conference Warren stated that her family knew her grandfather was ‘part’ Cherokee because ‘he had high cheekbones like all of the Indians’,” Nagle wrote.
Warren, who claims her grandfather was part Cherokee, expressed shock and outrage over Trump calling her Pocahontas during a ceremony to commemorate Navajo veterans, calling it a “racial slur.”
“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,” Nagle said. “She is not from us. She does not represent us. She is not Cherokee.”
President Trump has consistently pointed out Warren’s offensive claim, often referring to her as “Pocahontas”, a heroic Native American chieftain’s daughter.
Despite the negative press on her behalf, Warren carries on with her ridiculous claim.
As of now, Elizabeth Warren has not yet rescinded her claims to be part Native American– but if criticism from the public continues, she may have to rethink her strategy.
