Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren may be planning an apology tour because she recently got busted telling another a whopper of a lie.
The standard playbook Democrats use tends to cast them as advocates of non-Americans, pushing identity politics that aligns them with a minority group, and if nothing else works, posing as victims. The Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential primary candidate easily checks the first box with her calls for open borders and even giving illegal immigrants “back pay” in a recent tirade. That may sound outrageous considering that the cash would come out of the taxes paid by hard-working American families. Her thinking is also based on illegals not getting the compensation she believes they deserve after undercutting American citizens and stealing jobs.
That claim might sound crazy enough to be fake news to working families if it were not for the fact that she earned her nickname, “Fauxcahontas,” for lying about having Native American heritage. President Donald Trump poked fun at her for years, calling her “Pocahontas.” That flipped for the “faux” after failing a DNA test and evidence surfacing that at least one of her ancestors may have been part of the brutal Trail of Tears incident that starved and killed Native Americans. After failing to check the minority box for her potential presidential bid, Fauxcahontas appears to have perpetrated the unforgivable lie of leveraging motherhood.
“When I was 22 and finishing my first year of teaching, I had an experience millions of women will recognize. By June, I was visibly pregnant — and the principal told me the job I’d already been promised for the next year would go to someone else,” Fauxcahontas tweeted. “This was 1971, years before Congress outlawed pregnancy discrimination — but we know it still happens in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. We can fight back by telling our stories. I tell mine on the campaign trail, and I hope to hear yours.”
Exploiting motherhood is a cringe-worthy deceit that even the most liberal extremists may find difficult to swallow. For years, the Massachusetts liberal has been floating her pregnancy history as one that reflects female empowerment. She previously described the events as if she were a loving, traditional mother who stayed home and put the interests of her infant above all else. She doubled-down on her motherly commitment by highlighting the struggles of a mom who took excellent care of her child and pulled herself up through education.
“I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me.’ I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do,” she said.
It’s hard to tell fact from fiction when the Massachusetts senator speaks. The tale about her early struggles is understood in the context that she lied about being a Native American on a lawyer certification bar application, and used the false designation to get a job at Harvard University. So, when she says she got the boot because her belly was showing, it’s growing increasingly difficult to believe her.
“When someone calls you in and says the job that you’ve been hired for, for the next year, is no longer yours, ‘we’re giving it to someone else.’ I think that’s being shown the door,” Fauxcahontas said in a campaign interview.
But her previous adaptation of her story included a small caveat that she did not have the required certification for the job. In essence, her employer was doing her a favor even hiring her in the first place.
“My first-year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system, but I worked with the children with disabilities. And I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ’emergency certificate,’” the senator stated.
But the shortcomings of Senator Warren’s words go far beyond being unqualified, getting a favor, and lying she was fired. Recently surfaced documents show that she was actually rehired while pregnant – despite not having the required certifications.
“Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job,” the Free Beacon reports. “That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was ‘accepted with regret.’”
It’s terrible to lie about being a Cherokee when you are not. It’s utterly disgraceful to leverage and lie about motherhood to get a political advantage.
