Warren Claims to Be Cherokee, Her Real Ancestor Enforced GENOCIDE On the Trail of Tears
Kirsters Baish| Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has been claiming that she is part Cherokee as a ploy to further her political career, but she has never done anything to back up her claims. We have never seen any evidence supporting her claim to be part Native American.
Breitbart’s Michael Patrick Leahy wrote about Warren’s claims a few years ago. He pointed out some interesting and pretty disturbing details about Warren’s actual heritage that we should take a second look at. Warren’s recent outburst at President Donald Trump over a comment he made in which he called her “Pocahontas” has been all over the media.
Leahy explained that there was no solid evidence that supported the claim that O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford was actually Cherokee at all. She was actually listed as “white” in the 1860 census.
A lead was handed to Leahy by William Jacobson, which brought Leahy to an even more interesting discovery. This discovery involved Senator Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, Jonathan Crawford who served in the East Tennessee Mounted Infantry Volunteer Militia that was commanded by Brigadier General R. G. Dunlap from later in 1835 to 1836. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather was a member of Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion… a battalion which was repsonbile for removing Cherokee families from their land in Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. They “relocated” these Native Americans to designated “Indian territory.”
Nearly 4,000 Cherokee Indians were displaced during the Trail of Tears, which started in January of 1837.
History.com wrote that around 125,000 Native Americans were living on millions of acres located in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Their ancestors had occupied the land for years.
The facts don’t quite add up to the claims that Senator Warren has been making. Leahy also reported that Crawford went to Florida in November of 1837, serving there for six months. His unit was then disbanded in May of the following year. Crawford’s time in the battalion was confirmed by Smith-Crawford’s 1851 pension application in Tennessee.
Leahy explained that O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford never claimed that she was of Cherokee heritage the entire time that she was alive. Jonathan Crawford or any of their seven children never claimed to be Cherokee either.
So, why has Elizabeth Warren claimed time and time again that she is Cherokee?
It would be a pretty good laugh for all of us if Warren continued to use this ploy in order to gain sympathy and political control. She has been proven to be the great-great-great granddaughter of a man who aided in forcing Native Americans to leave their homes.
Warren’s connection to the Cherokee is a lot different than the story she has painted for us. Her “facts” aren’t adding up, and it’s about time that she tell the truth. This woman is nothing more than a liar and a fake.
