Elizabeth Warren is no stranger to the conservative movement. She's the face of modern liberalism, representing everything that's wrong with America. She even claimed to lay the "intellectual foundation" for Occupy Wall Street. Besides being a liberal hero and a hack, Warren's life consists of a mix of academia and working for the Obama administration. Translation: she has no grasp of reality. She's running for Senate in Massachusetts against RINO Scott Brown in a tight race. A few weeks back, documents were uncovered that show Warren claimed to be Native American when applying for her job at Harvard law, which was none other than an attempt to manipulate the system - affirmative action - strongly supported by liberals.
The reason this has become an issue (as it should) is because this is how liberals operate: do as I say, not as I do. Elizabeth Warren wants to apply a set of rules and laws that everyone else should be forced to follow, but she can do whatever she'd like. This belief is a fundamental flaw to liberalism and is often ominous in totalitarian regimes. It's how the "middle class" gets destroyed, as they end up doing the work that ultimately supports the leaders, in this case, Warren.
Warren listed herself as a Native American for her ethnicity when working at Harvard Law in the 1990's, a time when the university was under fire for their lack of diversity. Just like how the government forced banks to meet racial quotas for home loans, which contributed to the housing crisis, many other institutions faced a similar wrath. The situation at Harvard gave Warren an opportunity to exploit the system she helped create. This is why Warren claimed to be Native America; she gave herself a much higher chance of being hired. It was unethical, but par for the course with liberals, as the laws don't often apply to them in their eyes.
The 1/32 Native American has some connection to Indians, but not in a flattering way: her distant relatives rounded up Indians in the 1800's for the Trail of Tears.
Jonathan Crawford, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford’s husband and apparently Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, served in the East Tennessee Mounted Infantry Volunteer Militia commanded by Brigadier General R. G. Dunlap from late 1835 to late 1836. While under Dunlap’s command he was a member of Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion, and Captain Richard E. Waterhouse’s Company.
These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in for generations in the three states that the Cherokee Nations had considered their homelands for centuries: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
There's more to this story than meets the eye. It's clear that Elizabeth Warren has and will exploit systems she helped create, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. There is dirt on this crackpot and it's bound to come up. The people of Massachusetts deserve to know who they're electing to office. A manipulator for her own selfish benefit is at the core of Elizabeth Warren, like a typical liberal.
