After Scott (Cosmo) Brown amped up rhetoric accusing Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren of using her Native American heritage to her professional advantage a video shocking video surfaced showing Brown staffers making racist Native American ‘war whoops’ and tomahawk chops in a face-off with Warren supporters, mocking Warren’s Cherokee heritage.
Here you can see Brown’s staffers making “war whoops” and “tomahawk chops”, presumably in reference to Warren’s Cherokee heritage. In the video identifies as making the air chop is none other than Brown’s Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard (camouflage shirt) and Massachusetts GOP operative Brad Garrett, (tan baseball cap and gray hoodie), leading the war whoops.
When confronted with this “It is certainly something that I don’t condone,” said Brown. But it certainly wasn’t something that he condemned either using the moment to attack Elizabeth Warren’s racial heritage once again. “The real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure.”
Well Elizabeth Warren responds new ad political ad to about Brown’s racist attacks and her Native American background:
“As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage. What kid would? But I knew my father’s family didn’t like that she was part Cherokee and part Delaware — so my parents had to elope. Let me be clear, I never asked for, never got any benefit, because of my heritage. The people who hired me have all said they didn’t even know about it. I’m Elizabeth Warren, I approve this message. Scott Brown can continue attacking my family — but I”m gonna keep fighting for yours.”
The US is 40 years behind western Europe in terms of racial issues. How can it be allowed for a politician to criticize someone based on their ethnicity? Do that in Europe and you lose your career.
This is just just another checkmark on a long list that proves that Scott Brown is not qualified enough or intellegent enough to hold public office
