    Right wing smear machine to blame for Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee problem (again)

    Right wing smear machine to blame for Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee problem (again)

    Hey, you know who is to blame for Elizabeth Warren’s false claim to be Cherokee?

    Definitely not Elizabeth Warren if you are a defender of Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.  No, this is far deeper and vaster than Elizabeth Warren, it goes well into the world of “right wing extremists” according to Warren’s press secretary.

    And now, according to the left-wing Boston Phoenix, there’s a vast right wing conspiracy, Massachusetts voters are about to get an up-close look at the right-wing smear machine:

    Massachusetts races have rarely drawn the full attention  of what I have previously dubbed the movement-conservative marketplace, so  people here have mostly witnessed its ugliness from a distance, if they’ve  noticed at all

    But the intense interest on the right for the  re-election of Brown — and the mocking demonization of Warren — ensures that  plenty of money will be spent attacking her, while conservative consumers lap it  up. One major site, Michelle Malkin’s, ran 27 posts about Warren in  May alone.

    Once they’ve zeroed in on an enemy, as they have with  Warren, the appetite of these national dirt-diggers is insatiable. And nobody  here in the state is doing anything but encouraging them…

    As for the right-wing smear machinery, they will keep  churning out material, which will seep into the state through the blogosphere,  direct mail (which is not included in the Warren-Brown “People’s Pledge” against  third-party campaign spending), and radio. That’s what they do — as  Massachusetts is about to learn all too well.

    First of all, Michelle Malkin doesn’t own Hot Air anymore — you need to catch up on Who’s Who in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

    Second of all, give the conspiracy some credit for electing Brown in the first place — we are the ones who made Martha Coakley refuse to shake hands with fans outside Fenway, who told Coakley to take Christmas off, and who slipped the question to David Gergen to ask about the Kennedy seat at the debate.

    Yeah, that’s how good we are when we want to be.

    And we want to be really good in the Brown-Warren race.

    We’ve been planning this since the mid-1980s, when we told Warren to list herself as Native American for the law faculty directory so she could make it to the list of “Minority Law Teachers”; we submitted the plagiarized phony Cherokee recipes to Pow Wow Chow and put Warren’s name on them; we convinced Warren to report herself as Native American to Penn and Harvard Law; we convinced the Harvard Women’s Law Journal to list Warren as a Woman of Color in Legal Academia; we told Harvard to promote Warren as a Native American hire.

    Yeah, we were there when it mattered, and we also told Warren to pretend she didn’t know about any of those things and to pin the blame on her Aunt Bea for telling stories about high cheekbones.

    I told you, when we’re good, we’re really good.

    And we will get better before it’s done.

    The most pathetic thing about the Brown vs Warren race is that conservatives are forced to support a man like Scott Brown for the very reasons expressed in that Boston Phoenix article.

    Conservatives need to wake up and understand something very basic: most people are just plain stupid. It’s really that simple. Most people do not want to be free. They want to be taken care of. That is the default human position. What makes America exceptional is the idea that being American makes it possible to dream of something better than that. There is no such thing as a “race” of Americans. It’s just an idea. And the Left, whether you call them liberal/progressive/socialist/communist/statist or Democrat it all means the same thing.

    They hate this country and everything it stands for and their goal is the destruction of civil society from within so they can take control.

    Scott Brown voted for Dodd/Frank because he’s just as stupid and unprincipled as the people whose votes he wants to get. Ninety five percent of the people who read that article from the Phoenix will believe every word it. Most of the rest don’t give a crap.

    We need the Republicans to take control of the Senate. So we need Scott Brown to hold that seat. But nobody should kid themselves that he will ever do the right thing because he’s already proved he’s too stupid to vote against a bill authored by the two biggest crooks to ever serve in Congress.

    Putting the spotlight on those who screech against the ‘rightwingsmearmachine’, it’s a tactic of the Left which Richard Fernandez, over at Belmont Club, has absolutely nailed today. Lies and projection in the service of the nomenklatura:

    The poisonous academic theories that Gelertner rails on about are sold not by argument but by disinformation; dezinformatsiya and bullying. They are advanced by the process of group think and peer pressure. This is how the theories of Climate Change, Critical Race Theory and alternative history became the “scientific consensus”

    – and how the Boston Phoenix attempts to deflect attention from Elizabeth Warren’s crooked tactics of entitlement to mendacious namecalling against those who have noticed her behavior.

    At least she didn’t find out about us wiping out the herds of crab that once roamed the plains of the Southeast, which were a traditional part of her ancestors’ diet….Until some of her other ancestors made them pack and head west. The Cherokees, not the crabs. Does anyone think she realizes that she has rightwing extremists among her ancestors? I’m pretty sure she’d go on the warpath.

    This reminds me of Hillary Clinton defending her husband on the Today Show in the middle of the Lewinsky scandal.

    Hillary knew the truth at that point but still unleashed the “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy lie.

    The press let Hillary get away with it. She used VRWC against Republicans during the 2008 presidential campaign.

    The media knew the term was a lie shortly after she said it but continued to let her and others use it. If they called her on it, the term would have never been used again.

    But back to Professor Paints on Fire. She can honestly be labeled a lying left-wing extremist.

    I imagine The Boston Phoenix feels Fast & Furious is another right-wing witch hunt.

    The Phoenix has it all wrong, as usual. It was Justice Roberts who outed her as Fauxcahontas, and of course it was also he who signed her up for Hahvard as Native American.
