The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

Friday, May 11, 2012



My grandmother once told me, as an interesting bit of family trivia, that though she was Italian, one of her grandparents was originally a subject of the Dual Monarchy, making me 1/16 Austrian. Thus my children are 1/32 Austrian. I hope that they would not claim citizenship or other benefits from that country on the basis of being 3% Austrian.

Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren, Democratic candidate for the Senate in Massachusetts, claimed to be a minority on the grounds of being 1/32 Cherokee. This is pretty scummy, but then it transpired that she was not even Cherokee at all, and the ancestor in question may well have shipped Cherokee along the Trail of Tears. Which would be like claiming an Austrian pension because one of your great-grandparents was related to Gavrilo Princip.
