She Died With Her Boots On

 

Elizabeth Warren a Direct Descendant of Militia ‘Indian Fighter’ Who Fought Seminole Tribe

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion of Tennessee Volunteer Militia from November 1837 to May 1838, a six month time period during which it fought two battles in Florida against the Seminoles.

Today, there are two federally recognized Native American Seminole tribes, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which has 4,000 enrolled members, and the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, which has more than 18,000 enrolled members.

Lauderdale’s battalion fought against the Seminoles at the Battle of Loxahatchie River, in present day Jupiter, Florida, on January 24, 1838. Then on March 22, 1838 they fought against the Seminoles again at the Battle of Pine Island, in present day Fort Lauderdale.

A native of Virginia, Lauderdale moved to Tennessee, where he was known as the latest in a long line of Indian fighters, as the Daily Press reported in 1992.

Gosh, I never knew she had it in her. I should have looked more closely cause those facial features are a dead giveaway. Yep, she’s definitely an old Indian fighter.

Our hearts so stout has got us fame…

    Columbo,

    Soon our authentic stories of Indian culture will be taken down from YouTube because of cultural appropriation/political correctness. Let’s take one last look before it’s all gone.

    I guess Warren didn’t know what high cheekbones really meant. When will her newfound ancestry be made public knowledge? I can’t wait to see how her forked tongue gets her out of this one . . .

    Stad,

    Warren genetically obtained, from a distant relative, her uncanny ability to immediately have a deep knowledge of someone’s character from a quick look at their bone structure. The distant relative was also a very famous Indian fighter.

    Yehoshua,

    Listen, my friend, you’ve got the right idea. Lately, the Seminoles have sounded kind of pissed off. Now would be a good time to say you were sorry.

    Warren’s ancestor is part of a proud history of Florida of which I am a native, born in Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami in the middle of the last century.

    The Seminole Wars really took off with the 1835 massacre of Col. Dade’s force of 110 men. Ironically, it was a distant relative of Al Gore who demanded a recount but it actually was just 110 men lost.

    The great Seminole leader Oceola was dumb enough to trust the US government and was seized while under a flag of truce and died in captivity of tonsillitis which according to my best friend in the fourth grade was like the dumbest thing ever. Tonsillitis? Seriously!? (How Florida Man is that?) In his memory, Liz’s Cherokee grandmother gave her the nickname Oce -Ol which many of us also use for her today.

    Colonel Lauderdale, commander of the force in which Senator Liz’s ancestor served, achieved several significant victories but most notable was his claim in advance of a key encounter with Seminole forces that he would make it safe “to surf this beach.” It was actually Liz Warren’s ancestor who paddled out to the breakers under Seminole fire and successfully brought the ride in though certainly not at tournament levels.

    The city of Fort Lauderdale was incorporated in 1911. The Florida Speaker of the House in the legislature in Tallahassee was quoted as saying “We wanted to name it after that brave surfer dude but nobody knew his name so we went with the name of the fort instead.”

    If the above is not true then I am not a descendant of Geronimo, Lorenzo de Medici and PT Barnum. Check my cheekbones, haters.

    I just instinctively can’t stand Warren. She’s as obnoxious as Hillary and then some.

    But, new rant. I didn’t listen to the “debates” but a friend told me she advocated reparations for gay people since non-recognition of gay marriage deprived them of tax benefits for many years.

    If true the reparations for gays will probably hurt her. Even average liberals haven’t thought about anything as far out as that. So, if you were autistic or OCD or anything ever at all that there wasn’t a treatment for, or recognized with special benefits that held you back, you need REPARATIONS?

    That is kind of a philosophy that when society changes or invents some new ”right,” it should always have been there, hence the past deviance from the future becomes a legit grievance. Eventually women could cite a pile of them and we’d ”OWE” half the darn human population, yet they also were spared a lot of hazards, so how do you tabulate that? About the only reparations I could see arguable are for those actually drafted to serve, and put in harm’s way in the military. And even that could be seen as just the former state in which society operated. If a majority (in recent times = judges) disagree with part of the social order, it changes and the ”benefits” start. Non recognition of ”gay marriage” for taxes seems bogus since the ”marriage bonus” was a result of modern tax laws that fit with thousands of years of older values. Nobody seems to consider that taxes themselves are another load on us all.

    The illegals will be next….ie,, they didn’t get automatic citizenship. How can we ever get to the end of a list of invented rights derived from a context of artificially created government functions?

    What interesting times we live in. Every twist and turn in the opera of our public life seems stranger than fiction. Its just too delicious this must be a hoax.

    Whats even more inflammatory, is the other name for these Indian Battles … Its was part of the campaign called “The Trail of Tears” … but wow… What a way to bring up the history of the democratic party and Native Americans.
