RUSH: Do you know how Elizabeth Warren knows that she’s one-thirty-second Indian? High cheekbones. (interruption) No, no! I kid you not. Her grandpappy, her grandmom, whatever, “had high cheekbones, like all the Indians do.” (interruption) Damn right, it’s profiling. It’s stereotyping, too. (interruption) How the hell can she do it? She’s a woman! She’s a woman; she’s a minority. She can say this stuff. (interruption) You don’t believe me? All right, let me get it. Grab audio sound bite number 10. Grab 10 and 11. You know, I don’t just make claims here. We got the backup.

This is yesterday in Braintree, Massachusetts. Elizabeth Warren held a press conference. This is what she said about her Native American heritage…

WARREN: My Aunt Bee has walked by that picture at least a thousand times, remarked that he — that her father, my papaw — had high cheekbones, like all of the Indians do! Because that’s how she saw it, and she said, “And your mother got those same great cheekbones and I didn’t.” She thought this was the bad deal she had gotten in life.

RUSH: What have I always told you about liberals?

Well, many things, I know.

They categorize people. They make moral judgments on people on the basis of surface matters. They don’t see the humanity of an individual. They see the skin color; they see the sex, the gender, the orientation — and from there they make their judgments on people. And here’s proof of it. She is an Indian, one-thirty-second of an Indian, because her papaw had high cheekbones. And all Indians have high cheekbones.

Every one of them! Every Indian out there has high cheekbones. I know she denied putting this on her Harvard application. Then she said she decided that she would put it on there as a means of having friends, of having people like her. That’s the next sound bite. Here she explains why she listed herself as being Native American in law school directories.

WARREN: I was listed because I thought (snickers) I might be invited to meetings where I might meet more people who had grown up like I had grown up. And it turned out that’s… There really wasn’t any of that.

RUSH: So she lists that she’s a minority, that she’s an Indian because she thought she might meet more people. She might be invited to more stuff. (interruption) What? (interruption) Yeah. Oh, yeah, I think that’s right. This is the woman Obama wanted to run a consumer fraud division or what have you. But what reservation did this woman grow up on? When was the last reservation she was at? What’s the last pack of cigarettes with no sales tax that she bought? But this is who they are. “Oh, yeah!” (interruption) No, she’s not being “run out of the race.” (interruption)

Well, we’re laughing at her. I don’t know if they’re laughing at her in Massachusetts. I’ll tell you what they’re doing. Scott Brown has a daughter who is still on his health insurance plan, and they’re criticizing him for that in Massachusetts. I thought that was one of Obama’s great things in the health care plan is your kid can stay on your insurance plan until age 26. So they’re ripping Scott Brown for keeping one of his daughters on his insurance plan.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren… This is the woman who says nobody ever got anywhere on their own. It never happened. You rich people, if it hadn’t been for everybody building the road to your factory and building your factory, you wouldn’t have amounted to anything. It’s all in here. Grab sound bite number 1 10 again. I can’t say it any better than she says it.

WARREN: My Aunt Bee has walked by that picture at least a thousand times, remarked that he — that her father, my papaw — had high cheekbones, like all of the Indians do! Because that’s how she saw it, and she said, “And your mother got those same great cheekbones and I didn’t.” She thought this was the bad deal she had gotten in life.

RUSH: Look at how these people look at people. “All” Indians have “high cheekbones.” But somebody here… I lose track who she’s talking about, mamaw, papaw, Aunt Bee. I don’t know. She didn’t talk about Barney or Andy. But somebody didn’t get high cheekbones and so their life was over! Their life was ruined. When the high cheekbones were being passed out, what, did they get big ears instead? I don’t know. But it didn’t work out well, and so on this woman spent her life miserably because she didn’t get the high cheekbone that “all” Indians have.

Somebody needs to ask this woman: “Well, what characteristics do ‘all’ African-Americans have?”

I’d love to ask her: “What characteristics do ‘all’ white people have? Name one, just one characteristic.”

‘Cause “all” Indians have high cheekbones.

You hear her say it.


RUSH: Milwaukee. This is Charles. Thank you for calling, sir. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: (whispering) Yes, sir. Thank you for having me. I just had to call and say that all the stuff that you played before —

RUSH: Hey, Charles? Charles, could you speak a little bit more directly into the telephone microphone there?

CALLER: Can you hear me better now?

RUSH: That’s much better, like 110% better. Yeah.

CALLER: Oh, okay. I’m sorry. The only thing I wanted to talk about was, I forget her name, but she was talking about “high cheekbones” and Indians and all that?

RUSH: That would be Elizabeth Warren, Senate candidate in Massachusetts. Yes.

CALLER: Yes. Elizabeth Warren. That statement, to me, is monolithic racism. It’s just painting us all with the same brush.

RUSH: It’s bigotry.


RUSH: It’s racism, “monolithic” or otherwise. But you’re exactly right. I know what you mean by that: “All” Indians have high cheekbones. That’s just it: “All” Indians have high cheekbones.

CALLER: That’s horrible.

RUSH: And how many of them have blue eyes like she has and blond hair? (interruption) Okay, gray hair then if it’s dyed! How many of them have blue eyes and gray hair?

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: You’re right, but I don’t really know what the reaction she’s getting in Massachusetts is. Snerdley asked me if they’re laughing at her. I really don’t know, and I would be afraid to hazard a guess. I would assume that the Brown campaign is trying to make something of it, but the media will give her a pass. They’ll say, “Ah, well, you know what her intentions were here.” The real joke here is that she’s claiming one-thirty-second of Indian is blood coursing through her veins, so she’s now a dual minority, and therefore deserving of special favors.

She’s a woman, which makes her a member of the only “majority minority” I’ve ever heard of. Because there are more women than men or anybody else, but yet they’re still considered a minority. And then she’s Indian, one-thirty-second Indian. So she’s a double whammy, and she is deserving of special favors — special attentions and special favors — because she is from a discriminated-against minority: Indians. And they “all” have “high cheekbones.” That’s further evidence that she is one because she has high cheekbones, as “all” Indians — every one of them — does.

That makes her an Indian.

Who knew?


RUSH: ABC News: “After facing her own controversy for questions about her Native-American heritage, Elizabeth Warren, the likely Democratic nominee in the Massachusetts Senate race, has accused Sen. Scott Brown of being a hypocrite after he told the Boston Globe that he still insures his 23-year-old daughter, Ayla, on his health care plan. … ‘Brown’s still promising to repeal the very reforms that allow him and the parents of 2.5 million other young adults to keep their kids covered,’ Warren spokeswoman Alethea Harney said in a statement. ‘It’s not right. Scott Brown spells health care: H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y.'” ABC says, “The timing is also unfortunate for Brown, who had started out the week in a good situation,” but now that Warren has proven she’s an Indian ’cause she’s got high cheekbones, it’s a problem for Scott Brown.

This is in the media. Ha ha!
