Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has said and done a lot of things this political season that her progressive fans have dismissed – or even defended – that, had she been a Republican candidate, these same progressives would have screamed bloody murder about and demanded a retraction, an apology, or even a resignation from her position as a law professor at Harvard University.
Yet, to this very day, the progressive movement remains steadfast in its support for Warren’s lying, hypocritical ways.
Let’s review a few of them, shall we?
[…] for at least six straight years during Warren’s tenure, Harvard University reported in federally mandated diversity statistics that it had a Native American woman in its senior ranks at the law school. According to both Harvard officials and federal guidelines, those statistics are almost always based on the way employees describe themselves.
In addition, both Harvard’s guidelines and federal regulations for the statistics lay out a specific definition of Native American that Warren does not meet.
The documents suggest for the first time that either Warren or a Harvard administrator classified her repeatedly as Native American in papers prepared for the government in a way that apparently did not adhere to federal diversity guidelines. They raise further questions about Warren’s statements that she was unaware Harvard was promoting her as Native American.
The Warren campaign declined Thursday to answer the Globe’s specific questions about the documents.
“My mom and dad have told me a lot of things too, but they’re not always accurate.” – Brown, in response to Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she knew she had Native American ancestry “Because my mother told me so.”
“Scott Brown’s comments about my parents are totally out of line. I resent him questioning their honesty.” – Warren’s response in a statement demanding that Brown apologize for insinuating her parents may have uttered an inaccurate word to her.
“Questions surrounding Warren’s American Indian heritage re-emerged after many members of a council of Democratic Native Americans — including the great-grandson of Geronimo — were outraged that Warren listed herself as a minority in a law school directory without any proof.
Warren ignored a follow-up question about whether she was refusing to meet with the group, who are loyal Democrats and come from across the country. She has continued to claim that her Cherokee roots are a part of her life due to stories her family told her.”
According to Wikipedia, the Occupy Wall Street movement was created by Canadian activist group Adbusters as part of a global protest movement. The New York protest was then lead for time by anarchist David Graeber, who organized local “general assembly” meetings and is said to have coined the term “We are the 99%.” In September of 2011, Graeber claimed in a Guardian column that Occupy Wall Street and other ongoing economic protests represented ‘the opening salvo in a wave of negotiations over the dissolution of the American Empire’.”
Not exactly a goal a candidate for the U.S. Senate should be backing as part of her campaign platform.
Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked. – May, 2012 Boston Herald story on yet another one of U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claims of greatness.
Elizabeth Warren backs off demand that Scott Brown release more tax returns
08/07/2012 2:04 PM
Elizabeth Warren demanded Monday that Senator Scott Brown release more of his tax returns. The only problem was that Brown, her Republican rival, had already released six years of tax returns while Warren has refused to release more than four years of her filings.
Asked to reconcile that apparent conflict, Warren backed off her demand, saying today that six years was enough. She did not, however, offer to release any more of her IRS filings.
Left unsaid in her criticism is the exceedingly high salary rates that professors have demanded – and received – in the state’s many colleges and universities. Warren herself makes around $400,000 a year for teaching a single class at Harvard University. This is in addition to the tens of thousands she has earned being paid as a consultant on various panels the past couple of years.
“The game is rigged!” said the person who rigged the game by lying about her ancestry to use the affirmative action system in order to advance her career. Of course, she was just following our dear President.
This woman is truly loathsome. She bemoans the high cost of education yet pockets $350,000 a year to teach one class. She supports affirmative action yet circumvents it by passing herself off as a fake Native American. She complains about large corporations yet pockets $40,000 as a consultant for Travelers Insurance. She rails against foreclosures yet made a fortune flipping houses. I can’t imagine a more hypocritical pick than this self-appointed “champion of the middle class”.
On November 6th, hundreds of thousands of loyal progressives will be obediently casting their ballot for their hero, Elizabeth Warren, self-proclaimed Cherokee woman, despite her many failings. They could care less about her outright lies, her class-baiting, nor the fabulously rich life she leads while condemning others who live likewise.
The only hope Massachusetts has is that hundreds of thousands of not-so-gullible people will also show up at the polls, making Warren’s place on the political stage just a pitiful memory after that.
