Video: Scott Brown Staffers Chant Indian War Whoops, Wave Mock Tomahawks (LOL!)
BuzzFeed ^ | 9/25/12

Posted on 09/25/2012 9:38:03 AM PDT by pabianice

Staffers for Sen. Scott Brown were caught on video this week at a rally in Boston chanting Indian "war whoops" and making tomahawk chop gestures, mocking Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren.

Pictured in the video are deputy Chief of Staff Greg Casey, Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard, and a Republican operative named Brad Garrett, according to Boston's ABC affiliate.

A spokeswoman for the Brown campaign didn't immediately return a request for comment.

True, they shouldn’t have done it.

But, let’s face it, this video is just a desperate attempt by the Dems to turn the tide. I don’t think it will work.

The title says supporters, but the article says staffers. I guess it makes no difference to who ever wrote this article.

However, Scott Brown gave a great statment:

"It’s certainly something that, if I’m aware of it, I will tell that [staff] member never to do that again.” But "the offensiveness here is the fact that professor Warren took advantage of a claim, to be somebody – a Native American -- and using that for an advantage," Brown told the Globe."

I’m glad to see Scott Brown make a principal point here. But “the offensiveness here is the fact that professor Warren took advantage of a claim, to be somebody – a Native American — and using that for an advantage,” Brown told the Globe.

IF this were a bunch of independent citizens, I'd agree. But it is just the height of foolishness for Brown staffers to do these shenanigans. Leave that kind of nonsense to BO's SEU buffoons.

Harvard hired a blond haired, blue eyed woman and called her a Native.

The only evidence given for her claim is an anecdote from her aunt and a recipe in the book “Pow Wow Chow” - a recipe it has now been revealed she plagiarized.

Now we have videos of Brown supporters “war whooping” at a Warren event.

Guess which of these events has liberals outraged?

It’s a good initial statement from Brown, but mark my words, the Warren campain and the media will be obsessive about getting an “apology” and it will drown out the entire rest of the campaign.

I’m not so sure. Massachusetts and Rhode Island are numbers 2-1 in percentage Catholics and percentage Democrats. Most Massachusetts voters aren’t all that much different than Wisconsin Catholics. Most voters, outside the normal Democrat blocks (civil service, welfare, educrats, etc), are like anywhere else, only slightly more Catholic. The Endicott Peabodys and Cabot Lodges snubbed their Irish and Italian great-great grandparents 80 years ago, and they still haven’t forgiven the Republicans.

At a popular labor day parade my wife held up a sign that said, “Cherokee Nation for Scott Brown”.

Warren saw it. It got her thugs real mad too. We got a real kick out of it.

Yes,Liawatha will surely get every one of *those* votes but in order to be even in the polls here Brown must be appealing to at least some (and perhaps many) who have voted for the likes of the Senior Senator from Chappaquidick and Mumbles Mennino.

When did Conservatives become such wusses?

This may be complicated to understand so you may want to read the following very carfully.

See, there's something called "yourself" and then there are millions and millions of what are known as "other people." In elections, surprisingly, people other than "yourself" vote.

If something doesn't offend you personally, it is possible it may offend OTHER PEOPLE, and a perceptive person can predict when that will happen.

What CONSERVATIVES think of the video is irrelevant (I have no problem with it and if I lived in MA I'd still certainly vote for Brown). Every single actual conservative in MA is already voting for Brown and this video won't change that.

The problem is the race is tied and unfortunately to win, Brown needs to get the votes of tens of thousands of morons, aka "Undecideds." Said morons are easily influenced by the mainstream media, and the media is going to obsessively instruct said morons that they should be horribly offended by this video. There's no way around that.

Agree. Moonbats are already lost. Conservatives are already won.

Independents will understand that this is (funny!) partisan exuberance.

Ignorant independents may ask, “why would they do this?”

For those outside of MA, the major media is not covering Fauxahontas’ faux heritage, or yesterday’s revelation that she doesn’t possess a MA law license, despite the fact that she has acted as a lawyer since the mid ‘80s.

Doesn't the latest genealogical research confirm that Warren actually does have a Native American ancestor?

Even if Brown didn't personally authorize this, it makes him look petty. It undercuts the advantage he has as a sitting United States Senator.

I'm not sure that that's entirely true.My Irish Catholic parents,both depression children from *very* humble beginnings,entered the 1960's as democrats but by the end of the decade were both Republicans.In my youth,for a short time,I was a Rat but soon came to my senses after having seen my tax bills...and lots of other things.

And to his credit, Scott Brown brought a lot of stuff up in the debate that the media was purposely ignoring: her fake heritage, her salary, her work for Travelers Insurance.

In the next debate, he should raise the question that she was practicing law without a license. Let her spin her wheels trying to explain that one.

Howie Carr has been encouraging people to let out “Indian” war whoops and make tomahawk chops when passing Warren sign holders. Warren is risible, and has fully earned and merited any ridicule directed at her. Far more than she has earned her salary and position.

I want somebody to ask her:

Ms. Warren, did either of your adult children use the Native American designation for college entrance, scholarships, or job applications, and are you willing to provide copies of those to confirm your answer?

Do you think that voters care about ethics and integrity? They want results, meaning personal wealth at all costs, regardless of how it is accumulated.

Look at the polls. Guess what’s under 50%. The Constitution. The Declaration of Independence. Religious liberty and freedom of conscience. The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The right to eat what you want.

Guess what’s over 50%. Free birth control.
