The Democrats have a strange propensity for putting forth people who fake their ethnicities for profit or fame. Remember Rachel Dolezal, who darkened her skin and frizzed up her hair so she could pretend to be black. She even got herself elected president of the NAACP!
Elizabeth Warren, fondly known to her friends as “Pocahontas,” furthered her career by taking advantage of all the perks available to American Indians. The only problem was that when she finally took a DNA test, she had less American Indian DNA than I do – and I’m Irish! She used this lie to get into college, to receive preferential "minority" treatment on numerous occasions, and when she applied for her Texas bar membership.
Warren, who has been forced to apologize publicly numerous times, including an apology to the Cherokee Indian Nation, saw her scam come to an end with the DNA test. I wonder why she took it, since she has known all along that she had no Indian heritage.
“Beto” O’Rourke is just as bad. His real name is Robert Francis O’Rourke. But Beto is a common Mexican nickname, so he “adopted” it for political reasons – there are lots of Mexicans who vote in Texas. His twisted explanation went like this. Roberto is Spanish for Robert (his real name). And Beto is sometimes used as a diminutive for Roberto. When the fallacy of this logic was pointed out, he claimed that he had been called Beto since he was a baby. (He even produced an obviously Photo-Shopped photo of himself with the word BETO on his sweater.) If that were true, his would be the first Irish family in history to give their child a Mexican nickname.
His fake name helped him win the Democrat primary against a real Hispanic. This was in a district that was 75% Hispanic and 2% Irish. But it didn’t help him win against Cuban-American Senator Ted Cruz.
O’Rourke’s real problems will emerge when some of his teenage fantasies come to light. He wrote that he dreamed of running down small children with a car, and the thrill he felt when the car bumped over their little bodies.
These two are a perfect match – both liars and fakers.
