It shows that she’s heap big authentic.

Warren’s Clintonian smoke signals.
It’s worth noting that Warren brought on a lot of these tropes about Siberian Americans with her “Powwow Chow.”

Actual descendant of Pocahontas to Warren: Apologize.
I suspect that the fraud will keep doubling down.

Cherokee Nation to Elizabeth Warren: Drop dead.
Unlikely she’ll do that, either, but rarely has someone so publicly pwned themselves.
America is a wonderfully mixed-up place. You meet somebody named Qiáng MacFarland Lopez and the safe bet is that he’s an American. And many of us have had the peculiar experience of feeling a strong sense of kinship with a culture that is not our own. (That’s me in a Swiss train station.) “Multiculturalism” is an intellectual dead end, but culture is not, and there is much to be said for learning Chinese or Hebrew or Nahuatl, reading the great Spanish novels, or coming to understand Buddhism as something more than a feel-good corporate trend.
To consider oneself fixed within the bounds of one’s own specific patrimony is an intellectual poverty. But Senator Warren has not dug into Cherokee history, language, or culture. She simply used the fiction of her Cherokee identity to get something she wanted — a little political leg up on the rest of the sanctimonious white ladies. That’s cheap, vulgar, and wrong — and the Cherokee are right to be annoyed by it. And if Texas Democrats really want a Hispanic name on the ballot to put up against Senator Cruz, then they might consider — here’s a radical thought! — nominating someone of Hispanic heritage as their candidate. As for Rachel Dolezal — my best guess is that being Rachel Dolezal is its own punishment.
I don’t think the Democrats understand how sane people view all this stuff (not to mention all the gender insanity).
