Oh, Good Grief… Phony Indian Elizabeth Warren’s Ancestors Rounded Up Indians & Put Them in Camps

This song is dedicated to Elizabeth Warren, a.k.a. Running Mouth.

Now we know.
Not only was Elizabeth Warren NOT an Indian, her ancestors actually rounded up Indians and put them in camps.

Another phony Indian

Breitbart.com reported:

For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American.  When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J. Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee.

After researching her story, it is obvious that her “family lore” is just fiction.

As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as “white” in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry.)

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

This new information about Ms. Warren’s true heritage came as a direct result of a lead provided to me by William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection, who in turn had received the information from one of his readers. Jacobson, who has questioned Warren’s explanation for her law faculty listing, calls this discovery “the ultimate and cruelest irony” of the Warren Cherokee saga.

    i hold her responsible for nothing more or less than her LIES..
    and also condemn hypocritical Universities who practice their
    own forms of discrimination..


  • Remco Kimber

    Wow! Talk about a little white, err pale-faced, lie coming back to bite you in lily white ass.

    Thank you, Granny Warren, you’ve provided some really good entertainment these last couple of weeks.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    And none of this will matter a single bit. Why? Because she’s a Leftists and, as we’ve come to learn, Leftists of all stripes pull-off this kind of stuff with complete immunity.

    more hypocrisy..

    Black Slave owners

    not to mention White Slaves..

    tis no mystery to me as to why the left is desperate to
    rewrite history.. especially when it comes to the Dems
    & Islam..

    hey, it was only a 1/32 of a mistake.. /s/

    I was an Indian Guide when I was in elementary school. Had a feather and a head dress too. Pretty sure that makes me 3/417ths Cherokee. Gave other kids indian burns too. That’s gotta count for something.

    Guess I’m supposed to check the box now. Never imagined this was how America left its White dominance and became multicultural.

    Remember, folks:

    Swedish/English/Scottish/German/American Elizabeth Warren is a Holy Minority.

    and Afro-Peruvian/American George Zimmerman is a Racist Cracker.

    A rather comical turn of events.

    Now I got something in common with Hiawatha Warren. My great-great grandfather was an old indian fighter. My great-great grandmother, well, she was pretty much an old indian.

    Looks like Lizzie got herself one of those shovel ready jobs…keep digging Lizzie

    As a 1/32 White – Hispanic – Irish – American Indian…I find this lady very disrespectful !!!

  • Stella Baskomb

    Just watch – – the Democrat narrative will now switch to one that holds Warren is a VICTIM of cruel people trying to smear her, and will hold she is being UNFAIRLY blamed for the sins of her ancestors.

    I say, that’s all in the past.

    But her character flaws are all in the present. Her LYING is in the present. Her self-interested use of a family story to promote her career is in the present.

    Therefore the voters of Massachusetts have the clear and present duty to relegate Warren’s political career to the past, along with the other junk about her life story.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! What a dumb-ass!

    Thanks for the joke Warrens, it was a hoot! Many thanks are also in order the the idiots who run our nation’s universities without whom this stupid joke would have been impossible!

    (Wild applause here.)

  • tommy mc donnell

    the real shame is that there really is an advantage to claiming to be non-white.

    #6…i played an indian on a float in the columbus day parade when i was in high school. does that count?

    re: “Now we know. Not only was Elizabeth Warren NOT an Indian, her ancestors actually rounded up Indians and put them in camps.”

    I don’t see how this could possibly be true. Have you seen her cheek bones? True, they’re like most Democrat ‘cheek bone’s’ – setting on her shoulders, while her head is stuck up her ask. But that’s just a minor point, they’re still pretty high.

  • CommieJuice

    No surprise there. If you look deep into Rahm Emanuel’s family, I bet either in Poland, Russia or Germany you would find they sold out their own people to the Dimocrats of their time aka the National Socialist in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The same probably goes for Eric Holder’s family selling their own people to the Spanish slave traders and probably 0bama’s father side did some of the same kind of dealings back in the day. Nothing new with the liberal bigots.

    Does this hurt her with the mindless drones in her state? Probably not as much as it should. I mean Richard Blumenthal lied about being in Vietnam multiple times, he was caught, called on it and was still elected. Dims have no principles or morals, just race and/or ideology.

  • hermie

    #11 The MSM is already providing support for her by having stories saying that Brown is attacking Warren’s family history.

    Good grief! She was the one boasting about her being Native American! Now not only has she gotten caught in a lie, but her family history is coming out that her ancestor was involved as a perpetrator of one of the most shameful events in US history against the Cherokee.

  • Nosmo

    Looks like Warren really does have Cherokee blood heritage…on her hands…

  • Les Hardie

    The Warren camp must be wildly trying to spin this. How about:
    “The Mormons did this— they keep all those damn genealogical records somebody looked at!”
    Or, “I’m a victim of white racism because some of my white ancestors rounded up my Indian ancestors. I’m not sure who is who, but I think I’m on the Indian side!”
    Or, ” This is a diversion from my high-minded campaign to bring honesty and character to Massachusetts politics!”

  • Richard Aubrey

    I thing she owes reparations for the Trail of Tears.

  • Hank

    I was once a fan of the Cleveland Indians. Therefore I claim my American Indian heritage and will soon be on my way to Harvard.

  • donh

    “Running Mouth” Warren speak with forked-tongue. Ugh!

  • MT Geoff

    The militia members of 1837 may have been enthused or may have been reluctant to carry out the orders to remove Cherokees. We have no idea if the Warren ancestor in question actually took part, which seems likely, or if he did so under orders.
    Whatever his role was, it was his role and not hers. As each of us has a sin or two of our own to consider, each of us has ancestors with their own sins. As Obama is responsible for his foolish anti-American actions, so is Warren for hers. Obama is not responsible for the recklessness of his parents, nor Warren for a distant ancestor’s actions more than a hundred years before she was born.
    But, yes, it is sure fun to see how her own fanciful claim has led to her hoisting with her own petard. I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.
