Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized Monday to a Native American audience over her handling of past claims of native ancestry, telling a group of tribal leaders that she realized it had been a mistake.

“Now, before I go any further in this I want to say this: Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” Warren, appearing at a forum for presidential candidates, said at the outset of her presentation. “I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot. And I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.”

Warren was widely panned last fall when she promoted the results of a DNA test revealing that she has some native ancestry going back six to 10 generations. Advocates as well as the Cherokee Nation ripped the senator for appearing to appropriate a tribal identity in order to settle a political controversy, namely President Donald Trump derisively referring to Warren as “Pocahontas.”

The moniker stems from accusations Warren tried to leverage her native ancestry to gain access to employment privileges afforded to minorities, though an extensive review by the Boston Globe found there was no evidence to support those claims.

This is a bullshit “controversy” but Warren is smart to take pains to put it behind her. 

And one of the great things about Elizabeth Warren is that she is not shy about taking on controversy and seems to have no problem apologizing for any mistakes she has made. 

In this current political climate that is a breath of fresh air.

    During the rally, Warren focused on three major actions she plans to take if elected president: Tackle corruption within the government, make structural changes in the economy and protect American democracy.

    Those ignorant catholics and evangelicals don’t apologize for shit. They treat the earth like it is at the service of man, separate from man; that man is separate from man, and therefore need “protection” ie guns; and that they are at some vertical pinnacle of lifeform particularly and exclusively endowed with a specified unique “materialized salvation”.

    They are one giant fucking scrotum of ignorance. And the earth will have the last laugh.

      To be clear, the earth will have the last laugh at man’s disappointment that there is no “separate salvation” or “separate savior”.

    Remember when the natives were pushed off the land they inhabited prior to white man landing?

    Trump inspired hate

    Federal agents arrested a Washington state man who allegedly threatened to “exterminate” Latinos as part of a race war he believed would be launched by President Donald Trump.

    According to court documents, Eric Lin frequently praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler online and sent multiple death threats against a woman in Miami and plotted to pay a man to beat her up, reported the Miami New Times.

    “The time will come when Miami will burn to the ground — and every Latin Man will be lined up against a Wall and Shot and every Latin Woman Raped or Cut to Pieces,” Lin wrote Aug. 8, according to investigators.

    Even though the thought puts you to sleep every night, she is not going to be President.

      If Elizabeth Warren isn’t elected as our next president it will only be our country’s loss. We could use a dozen Elizabeth Warrens to set this country back on the right path. She is nothing short of incredible.
