Elizabeth Warren exploited Native Americans for identity, now protected from crititcs

In a report published Tuesday night, just ahead President Trump’s State of the Union, the Washington Post discovered a document where 2020 Democratic presidential contender and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was exposed by a DNA test that backfired late last year for having a negligible amount of Native American heritage, listed her race as “American Indian” on a registration card for the Texas State Bar in the mid-1980s.

Check out the image below.

The registration card lists Warren’s biographical information for the University of Texas law school in Austin, where she was working at the time. On the line for “race,” Warren wrote: “American Indian.” It’s noteworthy that lines for “National Origin” and “Physical handicap” were left blank.

As WaPo explains, “the card is significant” because, for the first time, it shows that Warren “directly claimed the identity.”

One spokeswoman said Warren was sorry for “not more mindful of this” and the Post quoted her as saying: “I can’t go back.”

GOP spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany tweeted on February 6 that she had been blocked from her Instagram account.

Why?

Likely due to criticizing the Senator Trump has branded “Pocahontas.”

McEnany’s post was captioned, “Elizabeth Warren: ‘I never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead…I never used it to advance my career.’ Here is Warren in her own handwriting on a State Bar of Texas registration card self-describing as ‘American Indian.’”

Shortly after McEnany posted the picture of the card with this caption, her account was blocked. McEnany tweeted, “I have been warned by @instagram and cannot operate my account because I posted an image of Elizabeth Warren’s Bar of Texas registration form via @washingtonpost. I’m warned that I am ‘harassing,’ ‘bullying,’ and ‘blackmailing’ her.”

Instagram warned McEnany that, “We removed your post because it doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines on harassment or bullying. If you violate our guidelines again, your account may be restricted or disabled.”

The platform then sent the rules that McEnany supposedly violated, which include: “We remove content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them. We remove content with personal information shared to harass or blackmail people. We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to posts or threats to post intimate images of others.”

Warren also famously had her ethnicity changed to Native American from “White” in December, 1989 while working at UPenn, two years after she was hired. She also listed her ethnicity as Native American when she started working at Harvard Law School in 1995.
