As if the “pow wow chow” recipe mockage wasn’t hilarious enough, now it turns out that Elizabeth “Running Joke” Warren plagiarized her faux-Cherokee recipes. Will she be billed as Harvard’s “first plagiarist of color?”
Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com:
Howie Carr released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey.
Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members of the Cherokee tribe, are described in a New York Times News Service story as originating at Le Pavilion, a fabulously expensive French restaurant in Manhattan. . . .
The two recipes, “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing,” appear in an article titled “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat,” written by Pierre Franey of the New York Times News Service that was published in the August 22, 1979 edition of the Virgin Islands Daily News . . . .
Leahy goes on to say that particular recipe is a word-for-word copy, with one exception: “Ms. Warren says, ‘Let cook until firm and lightly brown . . .’ and Mr. Franey says ‘Let cook until firm and lightly browned . . . .”
Oh, well. Brown … browned… totally different! Also, racist.
So she wasn’t content with oppressing Native Americans by usurping their heritage, but she also had to steal their recipes? This aggression will not stand. Or will it? You never know with Massachusetts; Ted Kennedy left a woman to drown and was still elected over and over.
Still, giggles abound and show no signs of stopping.
