Brown and Mustard’s Classy Hatchet Jobs on Elizabeth Warren
Things are getting more than a little silly in Massachusetts at the moment, where brave culture warrior Scott Brown, having been tricked into facing Elizabeth Warren in verbal combat by Harry Reid a few days ago, kicked off the debate he couldn’t wriggle out of by insisting that Warren couldn’t possibly be of Cherokee lineage because, “Just look at her.”
Now Boston-based WCVB’s News Center 5 has some choice video to share:
Sen. Scott Brown staffers caught on video chanting Indian war whoops, making tomahawk chops
Rally video surfaces after campaigns release ads about Warren’s heritage
Staffers for Sen. Scott Brown chanted Indian “war whoops” and made “tomahawk chops” during a rally for the Republican senator this week in Boston.
In a video posted on YouTube, Brown’s staffers are seen holding campaign signs near the Erie Pub, chanting and making tomahawk chops, presumably in reference to Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Cherokee heritage.
Brown’s Deputy Chief of Staff Greg Casey and Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard, State Director Jerry McDermott, special assistant Jennifer Franks and GOP operative Brad Garrett are pictured in the video, NewsCenter 5’s Janet Wu confirmed.
“It is certainly something that I don’t condone,” said Brown when asked about the video.
Hmm. OK so far.
“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.”
Thanks, Mr. Hasbeen Hottie. I’m so glad we’re now all clear where the real offense lies.
But if there’s poo to be flung in furtherance of a wingnut cause, Col. Mustard and his cavalry are ever ready to ride to the rescue. Jacobson’s doubling down on his widely derided and debunked allegations of yesterday that Warren contravened state regulations by taking on federal law work with another desperate face-saving post today that’s short on fact and long on insinuation:
I’m sure this will end well. Probably with a tearful post from Col. Mustard decrying the continuing lack of civility in political discourse from liberals.
