Former Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz cashed in on the living meme that is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren last week, and it was hilarious.
Naturally, the mainstream media reacted by calling it racist, but it’s hard to see how this is more racist than the fact that Senator Warren has been lying about her heritage throughout her whole adult life.
As you can see, Chaffetz snapped a photo of him standing next to a wooden sculpture of a Native American in a headdress, telling his followers that he was hanging out in Disneyland with the aforementioned Warren. Obviously, this is a direct dig at Senator Warren’s latest publicity stunt, in which she released a DNA test result that showed she has no more indigenous heritage than any average American.
Despite mainstream media headlines suggesting otherwise, the results made it clear that any connection the senator says she has with any Native American tribe is ambiguous at its very best. Even that is a bit of a generous overstatement.
So, of course the media called this racist. The media also left out the fact that the researcher who conducted the test clarified that Warren may in fact have a Native American ancestor between 6 and 10 generations back. That’s quite a far cry from the sob story she told the country, where her parents allegedly had to elope because one of them was too Cherokee for their family’s liking.
