Not to run too far down the rabbit hole but the problem with the "COULD have as much as 1/64th Native American ancestry" thing is that it's so tenuous. Don't know if you've taken any DNA tests yourself (Ancestry or 23 & Me), but I have. And do you know what it shows? I COULD have as much as 1/32nd Native American ancestry (double (3%) the percentage of Warren (1.5%), or within the 5th to 8th generation back, rather than 10th.) I also have the same percentage of the following: Iberian, Scandinavian, Coastal West African, and Ashkenazi Jewish. Which is neat. But if I were to attempt to claim minority status on the basis of any of those -- for any purpose -- I'd rightly be laughed out of the room.I am not a supporter of Elizabeth Warren in any sense, and think she would be a weak candidate in the general election. As I've said before, "she just doesn't play well in Peoria".
But I always wonder about the folks who call her a 'Proven faker'. She said her family heritage told her that she had some Native American ancestry. The DNA test showed that, in FACT, she DID. The DNA test showed that she COULD have as much as 1/64 th Native American ancestry. If anything, the DNA test vindicated her claims.
And here is the definition of a 'Clown': a person who calls John Hickenlooper a 'Communist', as you have done, even though he spent his precious few debate moments criticizing 'socialism'.
One senses that you simply don't understand such terms as 'Communism' and 'socialism'.
