The way her bogus claims of native ancestry are boomeranging, it’s almost enough to make one believe in Poetic Justice.
Elizabeth Warren famously wrapped herself in native culture and leveraged it into a really lucrative career, even teaching in an Ivy League school. (And leaving others to wonder if her bogus ‘native’ status gave her an edge that edged someone else out.)
And considering the reparations she’s been calling for, ‘edging someone else out’ is NOT a good look for her.
But could ‘edging someone else out’ be MORE of a family trait than those ‘high cheekbones’?
Some Americans look back at their family history and point to service in a World War. Some might point to the Civil war, or even the War of Independence.
But how many can claim to be personally descended from soldiers who fought to throw people off their land as part of the Trail of Tears push?
As it happens, Elizabeth Warren CAN make such a claim. In fact, her grandfather was something of a SPECIALIST in fighting what were then called ‘Indians’. As for the fighting aginst the Seminoles, he explicitly VOLUNTEERED for that job.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion of Tennessee Volunteer Militia from November 1837 to May 1838, a six month time period during which it fought two battles in Florida against the Seminoles.
…Lauderdale’s battalion fought against the Seminoles at the Battle of Loxahatchee River, in present-day Jupiter, Florida, on January 24, 1838. Then on March 22, 1838, they fought against the Seminoles again at the Battle of Pine Island, in present-day Fort Lauderdale.
A native of Virginia, Lauderdale moved to Tennessee, where he was known as the latest in a long line of Indian fighters, as the Daily Press reported in 1992:
Like other Virginians of his day, Lauderdale developed into an Indian fighter. In 1803 he marched as a Tennessee volunteer to the Louisiana Territory to fight for the United States against the Spanish and the Indians. In the War of 1812 he served under Gen. Jackson and fought against the Indian allies of the British in what are now Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
William Lauderdale became Gen. Jackson’s trusted understudy in the War of 1812. When the Creek Indians rose up to massacre white settlers in Alabama in 1813 and President James Madison ordered Jackson to defend the area, Capt. Lauderdale and his Tennessee Vols helped win the battle of Talladega. Lauderdale went on to play a part in Jackson’s defeat of the British in the battle of New Orleans in 1815, which ended the War of 1812.
Evidence supporting Jonathan Crawford’s service under Lauderdale in Florida was brought by his widow, Neoma O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, also known as Neona Crawford, to the Bledsoe County Commission of Bledsoe County, Tennessee in 1850 and 1851, when she applied for a pension from the U.S. government for her husband’s service during the 1837-1838 Second Seminole War.
With Warren gunning for top spot in the polls, we can’t wait for the other Democrats to tag her with this.
An if not?
Well, then maybe Trump will get the chance to beat her up with it a little.
Nobody MADE her embrace a pay-for-the-sins-of-your-fathers policy in reparations.
Nobody MADE her fake her way into claiming a minority status for years.
Now it looks like it’s time to pay the piper.
