Cherokee chief: Scott Brown staffers racist By: Kevin Robillard September 26, 2012 11:25 AM EDT
The head of the Cherokee Nation called staffers for Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown downright racist Wednesday for making tomahawk chop motions and yelling war whoops at a rally Saturday for the Republicans reelection, and called on Brown to apologize.
The conduct of these individuals goes far beyond what is appropriate and proper in political discourse, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said in a statement. The use of stereotypical war whoop chants and tomahawk chops are offensive and downright racist. It is those types of actions that perpetuate negative stereotypes and continue to minimize and degrade all native peoples.
Video of Brown staffers, including his congressional deputy chief of staff, whooping and chopping their arms emerged Tuesday after a liberal blog posted it. Brown said he didnt condone his staffers actions, but declined to apologize.
The real issue here is, and the real offense is the fact that Professor [Elizabeth] Warren checked the box, Brown told reporters. She said that she was white, and then she checked the box saying she was Native American.
Baker wants Brown to go farther.
We need individuals in the United States Senate who respect Native Americans and have an understanding of tribal issues, he said. For that reason, I call upon Sen. Brown to apologize for the offensive actions of his staff and their uneducated, unenlightened and racist portrayal of native peoples.

really now the cherokee are playing race card?
Tell it to Hanoi Jane and Jimmah Carter.
in other words she and her campaign have been looking for an indian to attack Brown and have now paid off this idiot
is this the cherokee dude leading the gang to kick out the black cherokees?
He respects them enough to not lie about being one.
I’m sure this story was just a small blurb in the bigger story of Warren’s fraud on an educational institution by claiming Native American ancestry, and the Chief was expressing his outrage over it. And I’m also sure the article was mentioning Warren’s unauthorized practice of law, which is actually a criminal offense in most states.
Lying leftist media propaganda organs of the communist party. Now I know what the Russians had to endure for so many years.
At least they’re not liars.
If I where Scott Brown I would take o the airwaves to demand that Warren apologise for Lieing about her heritage, for committing FRAUD by claiming minority status for personnal gain and demand that the local District Attorney bring her up on charges of theft by deception against Harvard and other organizations she has defrauded!
Ok, NA Indians use or still use Tomahawks, they chop - so making an air Tomhawk and air chopping is racist why?
Ok, NA Indians use or still use war cries going into battle - so making the same war cry is racist why?
Are NA Indians the only ones who can use Tomahawks and war cries?
HMMM! Bill John “Dances With Bolsheviks” Baker speak with paleface forked tongue. Party of Asses need MUCH FIREWATER to bring voters to polls!
"Furthermore, if his staff keeps this up... Scott Brown doesn't have a chinaman's chance in winning reelection against our 1/32nd blood-sister Liz Warren!"
Gadzooks! That's awful white of Chief Bill... ain't it?
Well, I called that one yesterday.
Brown will be unable to do any interviews without the media hounding him about this.
looks that way
Stuff it in your peace pipe, chief!
The chief has a bee in his war bonnet. Too much firewater?
Nope, too much Kool-Aid. Chief Bill attend many liberal victimhood pow-wow learn to make big wampum from DNA. Him heap big victim now.
