Rob Lowe's Joke About Elizabeth Warren Isn't Racist, Because She's Not Native American
Jim Treacher, PJ Media
Way, way back in the old days before October 2018, it was racist to make fun of Elizabeth Warren for claiming to be Native American. We were supposed to assume that it was her true heritage because she said so, and therefore any jokes about her were racist. (In addition to being sexist, of course, because she's a woman.) Then Warren took a DNA test that conclusively proved she's not Native American, although for some reason she and her enablers in the press initially thought it was a vindication of her claims that she's Native American. Now that she's been forced to admit she's not Native American, you still can't make jokes about her because it's, um... racist?
