Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears
Breitbart ^ | 8 May 2012 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Posted on 12/02/2017 9:28:17 AM PST by Mount Athos

For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American.

After researching her story, it is obvious that her “family lore” is just fiction.

Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee–the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in for generations in the three states that the Cherokee Nations had considered their homelands for centuries: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

While these involuntary home removals were not characterized by widespread violence, the newly displaced Cherokee mothers, fathers, and children found an oppressive and sometimes brutal welcome when they finally arrived at the hastily constructed containment areas. An estimated 4,000 Cherokees were warehoused in Ross’s Landing stockades for months awaiting supplies and additional armed guards the Federal Government believed necessary to relocate them on foot to Oklahoma.

It is time for Ms. Warren to publicly acknowledge the truth of her ancestry. It is time for her to admit that she has no Native American heritage that she can prove; and it is time for her to acknowledge instead, that she is likely a direct descendant of a Tennessee Militiaman who apparently rounded up the ancestors of those who truly have Cherokee heritage, the first step in their forced removal from the Southeastern United States to Oklahoma over the long and tragic Trail of Tears.

I couldn't resist reposting this one from 2012.

Not only is Warren lacking American Indian ancestry -- her actual ancestor rounded them up for the trail of tears!

Thanks for posting this.

This oped gets really good and interesting for our side with and after this paragraph:

“Jonathan Crawford, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford’s husband and apparently Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, served in the East Tennessee Mounted Infantry Volunteer Militia commanded by Brigadier General R. G. Dunlap from late 1835 to late 1836. While under Dunlap’s command he was a member of Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion, and Captain Richard E. Waterhouse’s Company.”

Go the link below and read the probable reality of Warren’s ancestors, not Cherokee but those who rounded up the Cherokees and started them on their trail of tears.

Her side will be she is descended from one of the natives that were raped by the white oppressors. And I refer to rape-rape, not just rape.

I love these turds being exposed as the liars and reprobates they are.

I know these elites look down on us common folks and funny thing is it seems to blind them from understanding how pathetic and undignified they really are. Money cannot buy class.

Oh, great. Now Warren is going to start calling herself a vet, and asking for veterans preference.

It shows you how the Left just lies and promotes their evil irrational Narrative. Their WHOLE life is about promoting a false, irrational Marxist Narrative where all white heterosexual males are EVIL and should be exterminated.

Why? Because it was the Mind of the white Christian heterosexual males who created the Age of Reason, Modern Science and the most perfect political systems in the history of mankind, including our “odious”/sarc. constitution.

For Slaves for the Marxist NWO—the total dehumanization of mankind—they have to ERASE the ideas which took thousands of years to embed in children so that they could “think” so profoundly they could understand the essential element of Freedom and the necessity of Private Property Rights and Natural Rights from God only, which is free will, individualism, identity and understanding history/traditions/past so mistakes will not be repeated.

If the Concepts of “white” males are ejected, then the minds of our children will regress back to the paganism of Sparta where slavery, sodomy, homosexuality, pederasty, pedophilia, misogyny, polygamy, child sacrifice were ALL “normal and good”.

Ignorance is slavery and our educational system destroys virtue formation in children (Wisdom, Courage, Temperance, and Justice)-—all essential for free will-—ability to think for self. The Pubik Skools only embed dependency and stupidity. or evil

BTW, woman have ALL the power in the USA “patriarchy” Ha ha— since our inception, since they control or kill the minds of the future and either create evil men and women, or good men and women. They either pick an evil male to be father to their children, or a good man to be the father of their children. They create the Charles Manson’s or the Tesla’s (always with the help of their fathers like Tesla’s who was an Orthodox priest or like a Manson’s-—no known father but raped by stepfathers because the mother never ever nurtured or protected him which destroyed trust in mankind completely and ability to be moral (have empathy).

Elizabeth Warren telling the truth about this would be like Barack Obama admitting that his ancestors enslaved other blacks in western Africa and sold them to Dutch and English ships to send to America to pick cotton. It could happen, but very, very, unlikely.

And then she pretended to be an Indian to steal money meant for Indians.

She’s just a dirty thief.
