For those of you who might have forgotten the fiasco that ensued over Crane Eater because our focus has been on Elizabeth Warren, I thought I would repost a past blog (with a few modifications) to remind you of the determination of the ancestor stealer to cling to a fictitious story about Indian ancestry despite all the evidence saying this person's family was white. (Sounds a lot like Elizabeth Warren, doesn't it? For those readers who started following because of the Warren false claims, read on. You will see this phenomenon is nothing new.)
Because I have done such extensive research on the Cherokee man named Crane Eater, it is not uncommon for me to do a Google search on him periodically. I saw something in January 2012 on a genealogy forum that was incorrect and decided to respond to it. (And contrary to the lies posted by that hack website out of Massachusetts, I am not banned from posting there!) I think people have the right to get accurate information. Let's just say things got interesting after that!
Like I have said so many times before, some people really don't care about the truth when it comes to Cherokee genealogy. They want to be Cherokee, so by gosh, they are going to be, whether they really are or not! And, the debate on the forum proved this point.
One message posted said,
"You're waging a losing battle. I'm going to continue my research; Nothing you say or do will stop my efforts or what I blog about. I've dug in, baby."
If that doesn't prove everything I have been saying all along in this Crane Eater saga, I don't know what does.
"You're waging a losing battle."
"Nothing you say...will stop my efforts or what I blog about."
"I've dug in, baby."
It is now perfectly clear, nothing, I mean, NOTHING, I say, no matter how accurate it is, no matter how much it is based on actual documentation, no matter how honest I am about it, NOTHING will stop this person from wrongly claiming Crane Eater as their ancestor. NOTHING. After all, this isn't a quest for truth, but instead, it is a "battle" and they've "dug in." Not only are such comments cocky and arrogant, they also show someone grossly underestimates the documentation I have. Isn't that sad? I thought we were doing genealogy here.
Anyway, apparently I am now in battle...
Gee, an Anglo going to battle against an Indian. That's nothing new.
But, before this apparent battle begins, I would like to remind everyone about a bit of history. Remember a man named George Armstrong Custer? He, too, was arrogant and cocky. He, too, wanted to go to battle. And he, too, underestimated the Indians. Now you tell me..........how'd that work out for him?
Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
