I'm confused as to why arguments by someone on the left against a republican being clearly bought by the Koch brothers and their ilk are completely baseless, yet the "Obama is a Wall Street puppet!" argument isn't.

That was a fabricated "controversy" from Scott Brown's campaign and was throughly debunked almost immediately. Everybody saw it as the weird and underhanded distraction it was meant to be. But as long as you want to revive it, Elizabeth Warren is 1/32 Cherokee, just like the leader of the Cherokee Nation, Principal Chief Bill John Baker

[img.photobucket.com image 613x300]

it doesn't matter if she really is 1/1000 indian.

the issue is a lady who is as white as the driven snow claimed to be a woman of color, claimed to have lived the difficult life that exists for women of color, in order to secure preferential treatment from educational institutions. she's a fraud and an embarrassment to the human race.

[Citation Please]


what do you have a problem with exactly?

you agree that there is no way in hell anyone ever mistook Warren for a woman of color, right?
never in her entire life.
you agree that she never had to go through life treated as a woman of color? right?

she was able to go to the university of houston in 1966, a still deeply racist institution, who didn't even let blacks play sports until 1964. if she was an actual woman of color she would have had to choose between going to historically black colleges or catching incredible flack for the color of her skin at the major southern institutions at that time.

this biatch Warren grew up watching other women actually face incredibly significant and life altering discrimination against because of the color of her skin. then she used a family story to claim a minority experience. she again victimized women that were actually f*cked over for the color of her skin.

what, you believe her when she claimed she only began claiming that dubious *ethnicity* out of a desire to meet women like herself?
Warren: "I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am."

and who the f*ck were the see women she wanted to meet?

women who grew up white, looked white, were white, and enjoyed all the advantages of being white (including preferential treatment for being white at a southern university in 1966) for 36 years but claimed minority status for the first time in the mid 1980's because it offered more opportunity?

really? that's who she wanted to meet? or she wanted to meet a *fellow* indian? there were no f*cking women of color there. she was the *first* god damn woman of color at Harvard!
she couldn't meet anyone at harvard who was a woman of color like her. she couldn't even meet frauds like her. she was the first!

the motivation for HER LIE is blinding obvious; anyone who believes her nonsense about wanting to meet women like herself who were 1/39 high cheek bones so they could go to lunch together is raging moron or so blinded by their ideology she can't see straight.

this woman who basically grew up in a time of racial hatred that us gen xers can't even imagine, watching real women of color get beat down for their ethnicity, chose to pretend she had a minority experience to get ahead in her career.

she's f*cking despicable.

Proud Cherokee Warrior Elizabeth Warren

www.prwatch.org

As you can see from this picture, she struggled because of the color of her skin to make it in evil white racist America so that one day she could protect the down trodden from evil white racist imperialism. Often she struggled to hold her tears against the vicious slurs against her native american ancestry.

Vote Proud Cherokee Warrior Elizabeth Warren!

If she can't restate that argument more plainly, she will lose.

It's plain to me. Oh, you mean if she can't make it understandable to the millions of ignorant morons who vote and can't be bothered to have even the most basic understand of the issues because American Idol is on, she will lose. Gotcha.

Hurrrrrrr. Smart people suck. They don't have no common sense!
Are you 12 years old, a Republican, or both?

To be fair, "smart people suck" appears to be the Scott Brown campaign strategy and it just might work. Ignorant voters hate it when a candidate appears to be smarter than they are. They like guys with trucks who they could see having a beer with...

Of course they do. The GOP is the party of anti-intellectuals. They're marketing themselves to people who never got over their grade school dislike of those damn smart kids, people who think experts, you know, educated people, are just trying to put one over on them.

Her campaign was always going to hinge on the contrast between herself and Brown, whose vote for the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill was contingent upon weakening the Volcker Rule.

But JPMorgan's risky trade, which violated the spirit of the Volcker Rule, allows her to vividly illustrate the differences between herself and her opponent.
