On her show Tuesday night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow slammed Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts for criticizing his opponent’s racial heritage.

She noted that at their first televised debate, Brown accused Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren of lying about being a Native American because she didn’t look like “a person of color.” Brown has claimed that Warren unfairly benefited from claims that her mother was part Cherokee and part Delaware.

“Scott Brown is also a one-man racial litmus test,” Maddow mockingly said. “Don’t know if your great grandmother was Czech? ask Scott Brown. He can tell right away.”

“Just in case the fact he’s running a race-based reelection campaign has not been clear enough, now it has to be getting too clear to ignore,” she added.

On Tuesday,<span style='font-size: 14pt'> video emerged of <u>top Brown staffers</u> mocking Native Americans with fake war chants and “tomahawk chops.” Brown said he did not condone the behavior, which was apparently targeted at Warren.</span>

The New England Historical Genealogical Society has said they could find no conclusive evidence that “Warren’s great great great grandmother O.C. Sarah Smith either is or is not of Cherokee descent,” though they did find that “various members of Ms. Warren’s extended family made references to being Cherokee.”

Hilarious.

Q </div></div>

No one can deny that the candidate sets the tone for his own campaign staff's behavoir. And this clip of Brown's own staff exposes just how desperate and repulsive the real Scott Brown is, confirming there is no limit to how low he will go.

This is really going to hurt him very much, since there are loads of people in his state who are linked through their blood liness to Native American ancestry.

His comment was racist, absolutely, and very offensive to most people, then his own staff shows up to display for everyone just how racist Brown actually is, and they prove it just as effectively his own words proved it originally.

He has a history of blaming all of his gaffs on his staff, just as he blamed them for his own plagiarism.


Look at his own staff's disgusting racist behavior!
