No, her claims of Native American ancestry have since been proven false; that’s how they were discovered in the first place.
Actually, it was discovered that she did not have any Native American ancestry, nor had she ever at any point been able to prove it. But despite her inability to prove it, she claimed to be of Native American descent anyway at a period in her life where doing so would have been of benefit to her thanks to Affirmative Action efforts and the like. It’s for this, her false claims and her lack of penance, that she got the nickname “Fauxcahontas”.
A few years ago, it was discovered that Elizabeth Warren had claimed Native American heritage during her younger years. When pressed about this, she tried to defend it by citing “family legend” and “her high cheek bones”. In response to this, a number of political commentators took to calling her “Fauxcahontas.” It took a few months for everything to die down, but the name still lingers on.
My body’s a mess of injuries that never healed right, and so sitting in any one position for too long is physically painful. I simply need a bit of extra space so that I can shift about.

That’s truth, folks, not narrative.
You do realize that the hero of the day is a member of the NRA, right? And that he was a firearms instructor with them?
As a member of a religious denomination that’s a common target for hatred and ridicule? The simple truth of the matter is that no matter how odious we may find certain things, they serve as a testimony to how things were. Without them around, it becomes that much easier to pretend that what they represent never happened.
When I got out of the theater, all I heard was people complaining about how it simply wasn’t scary and how they felt they’d wasted their time and money.
It is, indeed, established fact that a person with a drawn knife can generally move 21 – 24 feet in the time it takes someone to draw their gun from the holster and fire. Everyone from your average law enforcement body to the Mythbusters themselves have established this. 30 feet isn’t that much further out when you get down to it.
