    Warren introduces bill to revoke Medals of Honor awarded for Wounded Knee Massacre

    "Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced legislation on Wednesday moving to rescind 20 Medals of Honor awarded to U.S. soldiers who murdered hundreds of Lakota Indians in the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890. "

    She seems to have some backing.

    "The Remove the Stain Act was co-sponsored by Warren's fellow Democratic 2020 contenders and Senate colleagues Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California, in addition to Sens. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., Ron Wydan, D-Ore., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. "

    The intellectual decadence of nihilism in full flower.

    It’s a pointless gesture. It has no meaning or consequence. This is very typical political grandstanding. Warren is a stupid snatch.

    She's trying to make up to being a fake Indian. It's called "over-compensation."

    Next she'll be wanting to give back Manhattan for a handful of trade beads.

    So now we can call her "ChiefDancingOnTheBacksofDeadIndians

    Even now she tries to exploit Native Americans for personal gain.

    It's certainly grandstanding. There's no questioning that.

    So far as the medals themselves go, they never should have been awarded in the first place. There was nothing honorable about how that all went down. It's an insult to those who have truly earned the medal. In fact, it degrades the award itself. Or should.
