President Donald Trump is always the talking point of the mainstream media, especially when they can use opportunities to portray him negatively. One of their most recent attacks on the President just backfired in their face.
Monday, during a White House event to honor Navajo code talkers, President Trump acknowledge they are “special” people who were here first. He then said, “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.” The media went wild. But one of the code talkers told Joshua Green that Trump’s comments didn’t offend him — as the media tried to portray.
The President was, of course, referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Warren pretended to be a native American for decades until she was finally exposed.
She claimed that family stories, and the fact that her great grandpa had “high cheekbones,” is how she knows she is Native American. Many would argue that pretending to be Native American for 20 years to reap the benefits of the label is actually racist –as opposed to the media’s definition of racism.
Warren and the media have accused President Trump of racism for his Pocahontas comments.
President Trump told the Navajo code talkers, “I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here. Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time, longer than you, they call her ‘Pocahontas.’”
The attacks on the President went all the way to the White House press briefing. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if she found the President’s comments offensive.
Huckabee Sanders responded by saying, “I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career.”
The media was silent. The Left plays the moral high ground while refusing to acknowledge that Warren lied about her heritage and then used it to her advantage.
She allegedly checked the Native American box at Harvard, which “may” have played a part in getting her hired. Her decision may have prevented the hiring of someone who really is Native American. Warren was touted as a minority, and even listed as such in the Association of American Law Schools directory — though she maintains she never used her “heritage” to get ahead.
Are people reacting immaturely to this?
Reporter and writer Joshua Green met up with one of the code talkers named Thomas Begay. The opportunity to ask Begay about President Trump’s comments arose, and Green seized the opportunity. Begay noted that he was “puzzled” by the comment, but it didn’t offend him. Begay also said, “The Marines made us yell ‘Geronimo’ when we jumped out of planes, and that didn’t offend me either.”
Everything the mainstream media has been pushing is faux anger, as they create an outrage on behalf of others. Instead of having the journalistic integrity to ask the code talkers directly if they were offended by the comments, they simply pushed the narrative about offensive comments. Now that the truth is out there, this myth of “offending the code talkers” can be put to rest.
