Cherokee Genealogist: Elizabeth Warren's Claims of Indian Ancestry are "Ludicrous"

Fauxcahantas.

A Cherokee genealogist on Wednesday dismissed Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claims of Indian ancestry as "ludicrous," arguing that the Massachusetts Democrat "has no respect for true Native Americans."

Twila Barnes, who has done extensive research into Ms. Warren’s family tree, added that the high-profile progressive leader has angered some Native Americans by appearing to leverage her dubious heritage to advance her career.

...

The Berkshire (Mass.) Eagle, which endorsed her in 2012, called on her last week to take a DNA test to resolve the issue once and for all, while independent candidate Shiva Ayyadurai has sent her two DNA kits, both of which were returned.

Previously, Elizabeth Warren refused to say she would take a DNA test, claiming that she knew in her heart who she is.

The thing is, lady, "who you are" changed depending on if you were seeking a promotion or had just received one. You were Indian while job hunting and non-Indian once you'd gulled a diversity hiring director to give you a job.

"Fox News Sunday" host John Roberts brought up an editorial last week from the Massachusetts newspaper The Berkshire Eagle, which wrote Warren needed to resolve the debate over her heritage.

"We call upon our senior senator to screw up her courage and take the spit test," the newspaper said, referring to the DNA-heritage tracking labs that advertise on television.

"Would you be willing to take a DNA test to put this issue to rest?" Roberts asked.

Warren didn't answer on that front. Instead, she responded by telling the story of her parents, who she said met as teenagers in Oklahoma. Her father's family, Warren said, was opposed to his marrying Warren's mother because she was part Native American, and the couple went on to make it through "hard times" and raise her and her three brothers.

"I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers. It's a part of who I am, and no one's ever going to take that away," Warren said.

This just in: The alleged Party of Science reject science, says "lore" and "feelings" trump facts.

By this illogic, isn't Warren saying that Danny Williams is in fact Bill Clinton's unacknowledged illegitimate son, because his mom told him he was and he believes it?
