Liz Warren Suggests Revoking Medal of Honor from Wounded Knee Soldiers

With Warren slipping in the polls, her motivations and timing are coming into question.

You would think that, after the inanity of her previous controversy surrounding the indigenous people of America, Elizabeth Warren would try to steer clear of the subject as much as possible.

Warren, Senator from Massachusetts and 2020 Democratic presidential Candidate, was called out by President Trump over her continued insistence on having Cherokee Nation heritage.  Trump, not believing her, dared Warren to take a DNA test to prove it, even offering a $1 million charitable prize if she could prove her ancestry.

The test did not go as Warren planned, and the was soon out on the road apologizing for First Nations people across the country.

Despite this ancestral misstep, the sometimes-frontrunner of the 2020 race is again dipping her toes into Native news, this time adding in a dash of historical revisionism while she’s at it.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced a bill Wednesday that would posthumously revoke 20 Medals of Honor awarded to U.S. soldiers who slaughtered hundreds of Native Americans — mostly women and children — at the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890.

The Remove the Stain Act accompanies a House version introduced earlier this year by Democrats Paul Cook of California, Denny Heck of Washington and Deb Haaland of New Mexico.

“The horrifying acts of violence against hundreds of Lakota men, women and children at Wounded Knee should be condemned, not celebrated with Medals of Honor,” Warren said in a statement. “The Remove the Stain Act acknowledges a profoundly shameful event in U.S. history, and that’s why I’m joining my House colleagues in this effort to advance justice and take a step toward righting wrongs against Native peoples.”

While the massacre itself was an undeniably horrific act, Warren’s maneuver feels more like grandstanding than moral outrage, especially given the timing coinciding with a recent slip in the polls.
