WASHINGTON: The Boston Globe, after issuing two corrections of its fuzzy math, claims Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is 0.09 percent, or 1/1,024th, Native Cherokee American. That means she has as much Indian blood coursing through her veins as the late actor Iron Eyes Cody, who was Italian.
Of course, Warren is gearing up to run for president in the 2020 Democratic primaries. And it’s also clear she was hoping her micro-mini genetic ties to North America’s noble and primitive hunter-gatherers will enhance her chance for victory than the big loser of 2016, Hillary Clinton.
The hour of old, white women is gone
Old, white women with a deep sense of entitlement aren’t fairing all that well in the age of Trump. Just ask the befuddled Professor Christine Blasey Ford.
Perhaps her fantastic story of being molested by a young Brett Kavanaugh while at a high school party 30 years ago would have been given more credence had she some genetic claim to minority status.
Racial makeup, you see, sits atop the Democratic Party’s pyramidal hierarchy, like the fats, oils and sweets atop its nutritional equivalent. But the racial groups old, white, liberal Democrats males usually pander to, are being supplanted by the real McCoy.
The Democrat Disrupter
28-year-old democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – a Manhattan bartender turned Democratic Party rising star – defeated 10-term Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley.
As the Atlantic magazine noted:
“Crowley, a 56-year-old white man, also doesn’t look like a lot of his constituents: Half of the 14th district’s residents are immigrants, and 70 percent are people of color.”
Every utterance out of Ocasio-Cortez’s mouth proves she is tops among those who’ve taken the Idiot Test, but what’s more important is she meets the simpler requirements of ethnicity.
And who’s to blame for this? Why, the Democratic Party, that’s who.
Race, ethnicity and victim status are coins of the realm for the teaming masses who were once docile supplicants to the likes of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and, yes, Elizabeth Warren.
But these ladies can thank dead, white, Democratic males for their impending political doom.
In 1998, Democratic political consultant Patrick Reddy said of the Kennedy brother’s legacy:
“The 1965 Immigration Reform Act promoted by President Kennedy, drafted by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and pushed through the Senate by Ted Kennedy has resulted in a wave of immigration from the Third World that should shift the nation in a more liberal direction within a generation. It will go down as the Kennedy family’s greatest gift to the Democratic Party.”
Cherokee Nation, Cherokee Pride
Getting back to Warren, writing for Quora, a website whose “mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge,” Sam Morningstar notes:
“Looking at the 2010 Census… 800,000+ Americans claim to have ‘Cherokee’ ancestry. Yet, at this point, the three Cherokee bands only had a population of just over 300,000 individuals. And the vast majority were enrolled in Cherokee Nation which doesn’t even have a minimum blood quantum. To put this into perspective, there were more Americans with no tribal affiliation claiming Cherokee blood than there were enrolled Cherokees. This is statistically and demographically impossible.”
And Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. couldn’t agree more. He told Business Insider that DNA tests are “useless to determine tribal citizenship.” Furthermore, Warren’s claim
“…makes a mockery of DNA tests and its legitimate use while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”
If Warren is a member of any tribe, it’s the burgeoning band of Cherokee wannabes.
Of her place among a different clan, you could say Elizabeth Warren is the last of the Mohicans: The tribe of ethnically-challenged, increasingly irrelevant, old, white Democratic women; undone by the Democratic Party’s immigration policies.
