TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Fauxcahontas is on the warpath this evening. For decades, as you know, the senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren has claimed to be an American Indian. Now, she did this to advance her career, and it worked. Harvard Law School once boasted that Warren was the first women of color to ever serve on their faculty. A woman of color.

But Warren also used her fake Indian heritage to frame herself as somebody affected by America's sad history of racial discrimination. Warren posed as a victim because on the left, victimhood is power. Watch her do it.

...

Her own Trail of Tears. Well, as it turned out, old Lie-watha couldn't come up with a single, not one American Indian in her family tree, the rest of the country laughed at her, and rightly so.

...

Hold on a minute, who's mocking Native Americans? Well, if anyone's doing that, it's Elizabeth Warren. She's the one who has stolen their identity and leveraged their suffering to climb the greasy pole of our fake meritocracy. No High Plains whiskey trader ever acted with more ruthless cynicism than she has.

It doesn’t matter if Fake-ajawea is one percent Indian or ninety percent Indian. DNA should never matter except to physicians treating inherited illnesses. Your bloodlines should not dictate who you vote for, what job you get, where your kids go to school, whether you get promoted or anything else. Our ruling class sends the opposite message.

Better to stick to our ideals where we do our best, not always successfully, but we try to treat people as individuals and judge them by their behavior and what they do, not their ancestry. Under that system, Fraud-azuma would’ve never bothered to make up a fake family tree.
