If Sen. Warren Were a Republican, Her Career Would Be Finished
The Boston Globe published an adoring piece of liberal garbage this week about Sen. Elizabeth Warren having finally proven that she is part-Native American through a DNA test. Because the results of the test show that Warren is somewhere between 1/32 Indian and 1/512, she can now put the “Fauxcohontas” debacle behind her, embrace her Native ancestry, and go on to become the first Indian President of the United States. We are ALL Cherokees on this blessed day!
Um, or not.
First of all the Globe piece (and many other newspapers and blogs) bungles their own math, which shows that Warren is – at BEST – 1/64 Native American. And, at worst, she is no more than 1/1,024 Native American, which would mean she actually has less Native blood than the average person walking down the streets of Boston. In either case, the idea that she would actively consider herself a “minority” for employment purposes or that she would tour her Native ancestry as some kind of special quality she possesses is absurd to the point of insanity. We’re talking about Rachel Dolezal-level delusion, here.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Listen to the statement released by the Cherokee Nation in response to Warren’s DNA test.
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship,” they wrote. “Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” they continued. “It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
Can you read this and have any doubt left in your mind that if Sen. Warren were a Republican, her career would be finished?
Instead, the media is playing along with this charade, telling Americans that Warren’s DNA results prove something that they do not. Not only have they mischaracterized and falsified the DNA math, they have obscured the fact that, due to limited participation in genetic testing by actual Native North Americans, Warren’s geneticist had to rely on samples from South American peoples. This is like finding frog DNA in your blood and insisting that it means you’re part dinosaur.
We never guessed that submitting herself to a DNA test would actually worsen Warren’s Native American claims – we figured that, at best, it would prove her claims right and at worst, she would come out and admit that she was wrong all along. Instead, we find ourselves in this weird no-man’s-land where the test says one thing and Warren (and her media allies) say the test says something else.
This whole saga is an embarrassment to Elizabeth Warren and the Democratic Party. But more than that, it is a damning indictment of the mainstream media. This is fake news of the highest order.
