What an awesome story, it seems that Elizabeth Warren proved her point that she has some Injun blood in her. Just look at this DNA report that shows she probably had an Native American ancestor six to ten generations ago which gives her anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1024 of the ancestry that Senator Warren has laid claim to. Here are some statements from the report Senator Warren cites:
“Conclusion. While the vast majority of the individual’s ancestry is European, the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual’s pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”
Here’s another statement from the “Background Information“:
“For maximal accuracy, we use reference populations that have been fully sequenced (complete genomes) rather than references that had been genotyped at only a subset of sites. These samples come from the 1000 Genomes research project, which sequenced full genomes from individuals around the world (1000 Genomes Project Consortium, 2012). For Native American references, we used samples within the 1000 Genomes project of Native American ancestry; these samples come from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia. (It is not possible to use Native American reference sequences from inside the United States, since Native American groups within the US have not chosen to participate in recent population genetics studies.)”
Perhaps I’m just too much of a plebeian but I don’t really see how this document proves that Senator Warren has some Cherokee in her. Isn’t it weird how so many people who claim to be Native American almost always say that it’s Cherokee? Another thing that I don’t understand is how Senator Warren though this would help her party out. This must be part of some big-brain strategy that I just don’t get. It must be because I’m a white, male, RethugliKKKan. The Democratic Party is arguing amongst itself as to whether Warren is wasting time or not and it’s worth taking a look at what some party figures are saying.
The Cherokee Nation doesn’t seem to appreciate Warren’s claims and the Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. had the following to say:
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation,”
The Boston Globe story that Warren loves so much has also been corrected twice already. Who needs editors when you have to get the desired headline out?
If you want you can even join the Fact Squad and spread
approved party propaganda pointless narrative the facts concerning Warren’s heritage, donate your capitalist exploitation units, and even join the Fact Squad! Isn’t that just wonderful?!
Bonus Round: I wonder if Pocahontas really thinks that this video makes her look any better? Is this reality? Is this satire? You decide!
