Reminder: Scott Brown staffers do “Indian war whoop”, “tomahawk chop”


Sep 25, 2012 by    

9/22/2012, nearby Eire Pub in Boston, at a rally for Scott Brown including former Mayor Ray Flynn. Some supporters of Elizabeth Warren were also gathered around with signs. Here you can see Brown’s staffers making “war whoops” and “tomahawk chops”, presumably in reference to Warren’s Cherokee heritage. Identified in video making the chop are Brown’s Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard (camoflage shirt) and — we believe — Massachusetts GOP operative Brad Garrett, front and center with tan baseball cap and gray hoodie, leading the whoops and chops.

 

SCOTT BROWN this is a disgusting act of discrimination … misinformed Americans

Wrong about Boston

New York Post: Run a front page apology for your false reporting on the Boston Marathon Bombing

By Joel B.
brooklyn, New York

When multiple errors, exaggerations and blatant lies are disguised as news, it is the responsibility of the transgressor to formally apologize for their mistakes. The New York Post sensationalized the Boston Marathon Bombing, claimed the death toll was 12, told us they had a Saudi man in custody and eventually ran a front page photo of two innocent boys they claimed the FBI wanted for questioning.  Neither of them were identified by the FBI as suspects.  One of those kids, a 17 year old high school student whose face was recognizable in the photo is devastated and afraid ( I have blurred his face from the graphic in this petition). This sort of irresponsible and damaging reporting is unacceptable and should not be tolerated in a modern and civilized society. The New York Post must apologize and stop “standing by” their false reporting. Because in the end, sensationalized news and headlines may sell papers but publishing pure lies only sells your soul and integrity.

America Stands with the City of Boston


President Obama speaks to the American people about the act of terror at the Boston Marathon that wounded dozens and killed three innocent people on Monday, and says that through it all, Boston‘s spirit remains undaunted and Americans have proven they refuse to be terrorized.
