These were proud Cherokee women who came to Boston in good faith in the hope that Warren would do the right thing, meet with them, look at the evidence, and stop making false claims to be Cherokee.
And they were met with Alinsky Rule No. 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy.
Warren’s behavior has been disreputable and should be disqualifying. Warren talks a good game about fighting for the downtrodden at the same time that she steps on the backs of generations of Cherokees.
The way Warren has treated these Cherokee women is the way a schoolyard bully treats physically weaker classmates.
Yet miraculously and in a myriad of ways Warren always portrays herself as a victim. Warren tells stories about being Cherokee, yet somehow is the victim when Cherokees demand she tell the truth.
