A younger Elizabeth Warren once did something naughty. She claimed to be a minority even though she’s as white as Rachel Dolezal. Since Liz wants to be president (and Trump keeps taunting her about her fake roots), she had to neuter the problem with outreach to American Indians.
And here she is, backing an Indian casino at the expense of exactly the blue collar workers she claims to be fighting for.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s bill to clear the way for a $1 billion tribal gaming resort is meeting with resistance not only from locals who don’t want a casino, but also from a struggling Massachusetts city that does.
Brockton Mayor William Carpenter said the Warren legislation on behalf of the Masphee Wampanoag tribe would destroy his community’s plans for a casino, a project designed to bring badly needed jobs and economic development to the blue-collar burg.
“Year after year we’re running multi-million-dollar deficits in our budget. We’ve laid off school teachers for three years in a row,” said Mr. Carpenter. “We desperately need the revenue.”
He spent six hours Tuesday on Capitol Hill urging lawmakers to defeat the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Reservation Reaffirmation Act, which would override a federal judge’s decision last year blocking the tribe’s plans for a luxury casino and resort in East Taunton.
Ms. Warren’s advocacy on behalf of the Mashpee casino came despite her previous opposition to legalized gambling in Massachusetts, and after her vow earlier this year to champion Native American issues in response to President Trump’s dubbing her “Pocahontas,” a reference to her unproven claim of Cherokee ancestry.
Oh what a wicked web we weave, when first we practice to list ourselves as minorities. Elizabeth Warren, she’s all about the working class. Except when she’s ripping them off to cover up her past.
The Masphee casino hired former Congressman Bill Delahunt, fresh of his pot project, to lobby for them. And that’s bad. Here’s a reminder of who Delahunt is.
