Lieawatha clearly just makes stuff up. We’ve seen it before. She just says whatever make her feel like she’s getting an advantage.
She knows that being a wealthy white girl doesn’t score well on the left’s victim hierarchy. She’s desperate to find something; anything, to hold up as an example that she lives something other than a life of ‘privilege’. Doesn’t she have terrible problems? We should all feel sorry for her lack of victimhood, right?
Her entire political vision has a very ‘soak the rich’ theme to it. Some might observe how hypocritical that appears. So far claiming Cherokee descent didn’t work out so well. Shame drives her to take a DNA test. The results turn her into a laughingstock.
Wait, I’m not Cherokee?
It got even worse with the discovery some of her ancestors were actually hostile to the Cherokees. They played an active role in the Trail of Tears. Oops. She’s managed to have that lie hidden. It is very conveniently forgotten by the left. The question is now; how many times can she get called out for lying about her victim status? Well, how many times before her support wears thin?
But I am a woman
She claimed to be a victim on account of being a woman. Her next discrimination experience came as a teacher. The discrimination was for getting pregnant. She said her firing from her job because she was pregnant. Except, it wasn’t. It was yet another pandering lie from Lieawatha.
Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting show the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Board meeting minutes from June 16, 1971, indicate Warren’s resignation acceptance with regret. Washington Free Beacon has the copies of the minutes.
My firing was for being pregnant…
Warren’s claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant. Well, that’s a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to explain her jump from teaching into the legal world. She also uses it to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. Warren’s version of the story has the principal of the school showing her the door at the end of the school year because she was “visibly pregnant.”
Except I didn’t…
In reality, she gives a very different version of the story… in her own words. It’s been discovered on a YouTube video. (Starting at the 6:29 mark) In it she says:
“I was married at nineteen and then graduated from college [at the University of Houston] after I’d married,” Warren, then a Harvard Law School professor, said in an interview posted to YouTube in 2008. “My first year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. 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,’ it was called.
“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,’” Warren says. “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?’” Source: AmericanThinker
And then I lie to improve my election chances…
The American Thinker piece points out that it is one of a series of lies she tells, including falsified research. Faking results for the work you are doing is kind of relevant to know. Especially if she’s embarking on a national job interview, wouldn’t you think? Here are a few of other links you may find interesting.
It’s a little more directly relevant to job performance than an inflated view of your own self-worth. Say what you will about Trump’s ego. At least he never had the hubris to claim his election would literally mark the beginning of the healing of a planet.
Win, Place and Show
So to recap the win, place and show positions of current crop of Democrat Presidential candidates. In the show position we have got a commie bum with a bad heart. Then in the Place position there’s an admitted plagiarist, braggart. He boasts about causing the firing of a public official in another country. The official took too much interest in his son’s company’s conduct. There is no apparent concern for the appearance of conflict of interest.
In the win position we’ve got a habitual liar, so desperate to be a victim, she’s making crap up as she goes. She expecting nobody to catch her in the lie or if she does not care. Lizzy Warren with an Ax Dealt Her Credibility 40 Whacks. That’s what it takes to make the TOP tier of Democrat contenders. Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.
