Trump Again Mocks Warren As “Pocahontas,” Ignorant Of Her Illustrious History

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Following results of the New Hampshire Democratic Primary, American President Donald “Shithole Country in Chief” Trump, took to Twitter – as usual – and made some bizarre remark about Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who had a somewhat lackluster showing in the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation primaries – though better than Biden – who quickly fled to South Carolina to lick his wounds, remind them he was VP to Obama, and hopefully garner support from among the African-American community there.

Biden hopes for strong Obama-coat-tail-winds, though he’s only getting a puff-and-pass.

The Twitterer in Chief wrote that,

“Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night. I think she is sending signals that she wants out. Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a “nice cold beer” with her husband!”

What the Idiot in Chief/Liar in Chief apparently doesn’t realize is that Pocahontas was a daughter of a Chieftan, which would make her a Princess.

Though little is known about her early life – save that she was born circa 1597, member of an Algonquian-speaking tribe around the Jamestown area, her real name was Amonute, and had a more private name Matoaka – much more is known about her later life, especially after she married John Rolfe, an English widower who later earned renown as a wealthy tobacco farmer in Virginia.

Before she met Rolfe, she was the victim of a kidnapping scheme, taken to Jamestown, and later Henrico, described as “a small English settlement near present-day Richmond,” where she was held as ransom for weapons and English prisoners taken by her father Wahunsenaca, who was also known as Chief Powhatan.

Once Chief Powhatan learned of Pocahontas’ capture, he was inclined to acquiesce to English demands, and initiated exchange negotiations. During that time, Pocahontas had been in the care of Reverend Alexander Whitaker, then a resident of Henrico, where she learned English, religion, and customs.

Although she had earlier freely married Kocoum in 1610, a man described as a “private captain” by Englishman William Strachey, who also may have been a member of the Patawomeck tribe, the years of her absence as a kidnapping victim and other surrounding circumstances, led to her falling in love with John Rolfe. The Powhatan people had what some would describe as an advanced, or liberalized social society, and a rudimentary form of divorce in which two consenting parties desiring to make a life change, were immediately recognized as such by society.

In 1614, Pocahontas converted to Christianity, and was baptized as “Rebecca,” while in April that year, she and John Rolfe were married, which also resulted in a cessation of the frequent, and often-violently bloody conflicts among the English and Powhatan people, which became known as the “Peace of Pocahontas.”

Shortly after their marriage, she bore a son named Thomas, and the Virginia Company of Read the rest of this entry »
