1. Her family has discussed before she was famous that part of her family was cast aside because it was said the part of the family them "mixing with native Americans"
2. In her little video all she said was yeah there's some native American background in your DNA which could support that family claim
3. She said she respects and recognizes tribes have their own criteria for membership and won't challenge that

So what's the issue? It's her family history I don't get why people are so quick to tell her about her own family history...

1. How are you basing that claim?
2. Don't think she's claimed that as a huge portion of her background.....sooo

Her publicizing the DNA test as though it (or anything) would convince her right wing critics on this was a real misjudgment. The sort of thing Chuck Schumer would do because he still hasn't grasped what he's dealing with.

Setting aside what actual Native Americans have said on the matter and some of them feeling that she trivialized an issue of their identity.

1. Because her actual native American ancestry is so damn minimal, that 2. bringing it up at all was a fucking joke.

It is like me claiming I'm black even though I only have less than 1% African ancestry.

Literally all she had to say when the results came out was that she was mistaken because it had been a story passed down in her family. Everyone has stories like that, and everyone would understand if one of them came out to not be entirely truthful.

So what's the issue?

That she enrolled in college as a minority to get preferential treatment claiming she was native american.

She gamed the system for her own benefit by claiming minority status.

The college has gone on record stating she did not claim she was a minority on her college application, nor was there any evidence i5 was a factor in any of her hirings.

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/05/is-elizabeth-warren-native-american-or-what/257415/

"Warren, who graduated from the University of Houston in 1970 and got her law degree from Rutgers University in 1976, did not seek to take advantage of affirmative action policies during her education, according documents obtained by the Associated Press and The Boston Globe. On the application to Rutgers Law School she was asked, "Are you interested in applying for admission under the Program for Minority Group Students?'' "No," she replied"

actually-help-elizabeth-warren-get-ahead-but-complicated/wUZZcrKKEOUv5Spnb7IO0K/story.html

Your hatred of her as a liar is, ironically but unsurprisingly, built on lies. Have fun with that knowledge. You should feel shame, but if you can't even spare the effort to make sure your claims are factual I doubt you can be bothered to acknowledge your own failings.

It does, and will, get dragged up every time her name is mentioned. We are not the bad guys for shining light on the truth, and it is not something that needs to be "forgotten". I don't seek to bury the truth, and I just want every to acknowledge it.

The difference between many on the left and right. You'll still get people on the left who do want to bury but most will at least reluctantly want the truth found.
