The Leftists are so enamored with identity politics, they just can’t help pretending to be part of one of the designated classes of victim-hood. In just the last year or so, there have been three cases of Caucasian Leftists passing themselves off as victims deserving of your sympathy and special consideration (with Leftists, it’s never about meritocracy).
The worst is Elizabeth Warren who has built her entire academic and political career based on the notion that she is an American Indian. The next Democrat charlatan is Rachel Dolezal who passed herself off as an African American. Finally, there’s the pretty boy who changed his name from Robert O’Rourke to Beto so that voters in Texas would think that he is Hispanic.
