Elizabeth Warren: A Self-Loathing American

Breitbart:

Democrats on Monday reacted with dismay and disbelief to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s release just three weeks before the midterm elections, of a DNA test showing she may have traces of Native American ancestry.

Jim Messina, Obama 2012 campaign manager, tweeted, “Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now? Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???”

Why did Elizabeth Warren want to know if she had any Native American ancestry? Was it something she was ashamed about? Did she want to prove that she was actually 100% British or European in origin, like the Founding Fathers aboard the Mayflower? And also isn’t it kind of racist to have such a DNA test done? Doesn’t it show that you care about what genes you’re carrying? And if you care about what genes you’ve got yourself, you’ll care about what genes other people have too. And if you care about what genes other people have got, you’re a racist.

But Elizabeth Warren isn’t in the least bit ashamed of having traces of a Native American ancestry. She’s proud of it. And that’s why she wanted the world to know that she counted herself as a Native American, and was wearing American Indian headdresses  long before she had a DNA test done, if the photo at right is of her, and hasn’t been photoshopped.

But real Native Americans are incensed:

Cherokee Nation condemns Elizabeth Warren’s ‘inappropriate and wrong’ DNA test to prove her heritage

What’s clear is that Elizabeth Warren would like to be a Native American. She’d like to be not just 1024th Native American (which is what the DNA test showed), but a quarter or a half Native American. And that’s because she’s not proud to be an American of British or European ancestry. She really wishes she wasn’t one of them, although the DNA tests would seem to show that’s actually what she is. Elizabeth Warren is not proud of America. And that’s why she’s trying to distance herself from it.

What Elizabeth Warren is really is a self-loathing American. She’s ashamed of her own country. She probably ashamed of how her European ancestors conquered much of North America, decimating the native tribal peoples. And maybe she’s probably ashamed of lots more things in America history, like southern slavery, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Vietnem war, and maybe the Iraq war too. Maybe she’s ashamed of everything America has ever done.

There are quite a few of these self-loathing Americans around these days. They started appearing in large numbers in the 1960s during the Vietnam war. Most Democrats now seem to be self-loathing Americans (they used not to be). Hillary Clinton is one. Barack Obama is another one. And of course Elizabeth Warren too. They reject most of their heritage, which they regard as “deplorable.”

By contrast most Republicans are proud Americans. Donald Trump is the quintessential proud American. He’s pretty much the living embodiment of America and the American spirit. And he even wants to Make America Great Again. And that’s why self-loathing Americans like Elizabeth Warren hate him: he’s not ashamed like they are. He’s not looking for forgiveness like they are.

This connects to something else that I’ve said before: that antismoking is anti-American. For about the first thing that the deplorable colonists who arrived in America aboard the Mayflower did on arrival was to start smoking tobacco. And tobacco rapidly became America’s principal gift to the world. Tobacco is what made America rich in the first place. And so self-loathing Americans are not just ashamed of being descendants of European colonists, but ashamed that not only did these deplorables start smoking tobacco, but they also got shamefully rich by shamefully selling tobacco to the rest of the world. Shame. Shame. And yet more shame.

Why did smoking tobacco instantly become such a shameful thing to do? Because smoking was a Native American custom. And when the early colonists started smoking, they started going native. And their compatriots probably detested people going native, doing things the Indian way (even if it happened to be the best way). Smoking was something the Indians did, and the antismokers were essentially racists who looked down on American Indians and everything they did. So antismoking is disguised racism: underlying it is contempt for the Indian culture from which it came.

Of course it’s not just Americans who can loathe their own countries. Here in Britain there are lots of people who are thoroughly ashamed of the British Empire and the Industrial Revolution that began in Britain. And I once even came across a self-loathing Russian, who had emigrated to the USA. When I told him that Russia had won WW2 on the Eastern Front, he denied it vehemently, and said it was only thanks to US-supplied trucks and jeeps that they’d managed to win. And I suppose that it’s the same everywhere: you’ll either love the country in which you were born, or you’ll hate it. And maybe the more that some people love their country, the more others will hate it.

People like Elizabeth Warren make a living from calling proud Americans like Donald Trump racists. But Elizabeth Warren is the real racist. She’s a racist for wanting to know whether she had any Native American DNA in her genome: if she had not been a racist she wouldn’t have cared. And she’s also racist for hating Native American tobacco. So the charges of racism that she and her ilk throw at people like Donald Trump could be (and should be) thrown back in their faces.

    That’s about as much as me!
    My sister had it done last year and yes, we are rather puzzled where that infinitesimal speck came from too.

  2. Russtovich says:

    Frank,

    Just FYI but she’s been claiming to be Cherokee in order to scam the system for years now.

    She was hired by Harvard pretending to be Cherokee:

    She submitted fake Cherokee recipes to a cookbook:

    It’s so bad there’s a whole (fake) wiki page on her! (LOL):

    Native American is anyone born in America.
    Native born American Indian is a different concept.
    Warren just wants the privileges that come with minority status.

    She is a narcissistic sociopath.

  4. waltc says:

    Do you really not know her history and why she had the test?

    She get a post at Harvard by claiming she was Cherokee (not 1/64th let alone 1/1024th, but just…Cherokee) and getting it based on affirmative action. And Harvard officially boasted about having a gen-you-wine Indian on its staff. She then played it for all it was worth, contributing “original Cherokee” recipes to the cookbook “Pow Wow Chow” — one of which was later discovered to have been plagiarized from a recipe earlier published in the Times and created by a French chef. This faux Indianism came back into the spotlight when she ran for the senate. She defended it first by saying that her family always told her there were Cherokees in there somewhere “because we all had high cheekbones” and there was a later story about her great grandparents objecting to her grandparents’ marriage because of her grandma’s Cherokee blood.

    But it was Trump who fatally baited her. She dogged him viciously when he was running for president, literally calling him every kind of sleazebag and he responded by dubbing her Pocahontas. At one point, he said he’d hand her a DNA kit and challenge her to take the test and if she passed, he’d donate a million dollars to a charity she chose. The Democrats are now predictably calling him a welsher but the 1/1024 aside, the test itself was analyzed by a friend of hers who’s not a genetic expert and who didn’t compare her sample to North American tribal blood (let alone Cherokee) but to blood samples from Peru, Mexico and Columbia. Only the True Believers on the left think she proved any point except that she’s an idiot; the rest have quietly buried their faces in their palms.

    • Philip Neal says:

      The episode goes to show that Donald Trump is far smarter and funnier than his enemies think. Elizabeth Warren fell right into his trap. ‘Pocahontas’ will now spend the rest of her life shouting “Fake news! I’m not 1/1024th Native American, I’m actually 1/256th Native American.”

    • Frank Davis says:

      Do you really not know her history and why she had the test?

      Yes, I do know. And it makes no difference to the case I make: that Elizabeth Warren belongs to a class of self-loathing nationals (who are present among all nationalities). Such people make up the “globalists” of our era, and they don’t see themselves as belonging to any particular nationality, and in fact don’t even recognise nation states. These globalists naturally wish to see open borders everywhere, and they see themselves as “progressives” to whom the future belongs. But to patriots of any nation, they appear to still be what they were formerly known as: traitors.

  5. Lepercolonist says:

    I am a male, white, cisgender Christian, SMOKER. The most deploable American imaginable. The lowest of the low. Responsible for all that ails our country.

    The backlash was displayed last election with Trump winning and the momentum will continue.

  6. Rose says:

    Something that puzzled me when I was looking to see who else had been segregating people other than modern anti-tobacco when the beach and park bans were being proposed, I found it written in many places that it was the Democrats who brought in the Jim Crow laws, is this true?

    • Furtive Ferret says:

      According to Wikipedia it was:

      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws

      And I’m sure I’ve read it somewhere else too when I studied American history briefly some years ago.

      • Rose says:

        I just found this when looking again at Jim Crow, but it’s subscription only.

        The Democrats’ Missing History
        Aug. 13, 2008

        “As Democrats prepare to nominate Sen. Barack Obama to be the first black president, the Democratic National Committee and its chairman, Howard Dean, have whitewashed the party’s horrific and lengthy record of racism. The omission is in the section of the DNC Web site that describes the party’s history. The missing history raises the obvious question of whether the Democrats, unable or simply unwilling to put their party on record as taking direct responsibility for one of the worst racial crimes of the ages,”

        • Furtive Ferret says:

          This looks like it might be the same article republished here:

          https://spectator.org/43179_democrats-missing-years/

          It’s lengthy so I won’t quote it here.

        • Rose says:

          Oh very well found, FF, yes it seems to be.

          “The reason Civil Rights heroine Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the front of a “whites only” bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.

          * There is no reference to the formation of the Ku Klux Klan, which, according to Columbia University historian Eric Foner became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

          It’s like the little American history I thought I knew has been completely turned on it’s head.

          As an aside, now I’ve been properly briefed, it will be interesting to see how the BBC handles this tonight.

    It was also liberal hero, President Woodrow Wilson, who introduced segregation to Washington DC (segregated bathrooms for govt workers) and the armed forces. He also criminalized dissent, jailing even ordinary citizens for criticizing his entry into WW1, as well as political dissidents like the socialist Eugene Debs. A terrific book by Jonah Goldberg, “Liberal Fascism,” goes into all that and more about the general fascistic bent of American “progressives.”
