The unasked question about Elizabeth Warren (slightly updated)
It is has been suggested that Elizabeth Warren, currently running against Scott Brown for Ted Kennedy’s old senate seat in MA, used her self proclaimed minority status to “earn” her position at Harvard after coming from a sub Ivy institution, and having been accused of academic dishonesty. Harvard denied, and continues to deny, that race played a role in her hiring, but listed her as a “minority”, based solely on information she provided to them.
I am sure it is purest coincidence that Harvard was in the midst of some “diversity unrest” regarding the racial makeup of its faculty, some of which our current president participated in, in the year(s) just prior to her hiring (1992). If Harvard was/is as racially myopic as the protesters claim, hiring an obviously white woman (blue eyed and blonde haired no less; cheekbones notwithstanding), who could claim to be a minority would be the answer to their prayers (or whatever Harvard moonbats do. Crow at the moon?): a woman and a minority.
It would appear that Harvard has created its own Wade Churchill. *Correction: this fraud’s name is WARD Churchill. Thanks, JBS!
There is one question that remains unanswered: by her, or Harvard’s, use of her so called “Cherokee” heritage to obtain a coveted spot on the Harvard faculty, she must necessarily have “bumped” a legitimate minority candidate, which, given her sketchy background, seems to be what they were looking for. At minimum, it would have unfairly tipped the scales in her direction. Why isn’t the media, or some civil rights group pursuing this? It would be interesting to find and speak to the other candidates for the Harvard position and ask them their opinion of the Liawatha controversy, or if Fauxcohontas deserves her position after it has been revealed that her “heritage” is so miniscule, so ethereal that real Cherokees are challenging her claims.
Has “affirmative action” run so amok that the school didn’t even do a background check to see if she really had any minority standing, or has the definition of minority, sex, etc., simply degenerated into an “I identify myself as a……..” idiocy? Apparently so, since illegals have been given tacit permission to “identify” themselves as U.S. citizens.
The road to hell is a slippery slope of feel good legislation.
UPDATE: Warren recently tried to rub elbows with the common folk but ended up with her own “Dukakis in the tank” or “Kerry bunny suit” picture. The cynic in me wonders if the motorcycle was an Indian motorcycle…..
Perhaps Harvard encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run so she would not be a part of the faculty anymore.?
Dims, are you serious?
Your last paragraph practically answers itself. I love your writing and respect your opinion above no other, but this is Hahvud you are indicting. PC was invented at the Ivy league. You expect the minorities to get uppity over one their own??????
Just calling you out in the sarcasm dept. They would rather eat their own than to admit they exist.?
She speaks with forked tongue. And anybody with any sense will do the same. I once marked “African American”,I was there twice which is way more than most Blacks can say.
Still, we are talking about MA voters (machine)?who kept Teddy in the senate regardless of his qualifications. The one’s who defeated a limit on state taxes.
There ‘s no help for the blue state of MA, or CT for that matter.?
?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? F R A U D !
????????????????????????????????? Ward Churchill
Oooops!? Thanks for the fix!? I will edit it in the article above.? I blame the drugs!? 😉
…and the committed libs continue to ask: How.? As in, ‘did this happen’?
Pale Token not fit to darken teepee.
Chief Full of Bull is now trying to link Scott Brown to the Aiken controversy.?? AFTER Brown denounced it.?? And Brown is a victim of sexual abuse himself.? Sounds like Taxajawea is sending up the wrong smoke signals.
I find it amazing that for all her lies, class warfare rhetoric and racial hucksterism, she and Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Seat are still neck and neck, according to totem polls.
Even more amazing is the fact that in a deep blue state like MA, most of her monetary support comes from out of state, while Brown gets most of his support in state.
Most yard signs and bumper stickers are for Brown out here, and for the record, while in NH recently, all I saw were Romney signs in yards, and a few forlorn ?bama stickers on Priuses.
Okay here’s my take.? Kennedy did his dirty at Chappaquiddick [and American Indian name for “island adjacent to the mainland.”? MA kept him in power despite this short-coming of evading a scene of an accident and an unfortunate death of a female passenger.? It seems there’s a rule book out there to play by MA Pow-Wow-Power.?? Linda Warren’s cheek bone status uses a guise of smoke with little to no signal much like Ted driving while drunk on the Indian trail off a bridge into water.? They’ll both get away with it.
It’s all the Indians fault.
Bush’s too.? Don’t forget Bush.
