If you’re from New England, you know Howie Carr as the popular conservative radio talk host who has never been a fan of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Carr recently attended an event for Donald Trump in Maine and asked the crowd if they’d ever heard of Warren. Then he launched into an Indian war cry.

Liberal pearl clutchers are outraged, naturally.
Conservative Pundit Mocks Elizabeth Warren With Stereotypical Native American ‘War Whoop’
Speaking at a rally for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday, conservative radio host Howie Carr impersonated a stereotypical Native American war whoop, tapping his open palm over his mouth and whooping.
Carr made the gesture at a rally in Bangor, Maine after mentioning Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whom Trump has given the racially-charged nickname of “Pocahontas.” Trump has accused her of lying about her heritage, and his supporters have also chanted Indian war cries at previous rallies, the New York Times reported.
“We are outraged at the lack of cultural sensitivity and ignorance being portrayed as the race towards the White House continues,” said Jackie Pata, executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, in a statement on Wednesday. “This is not a fight about political correctness, but rather a matter of respect for our people, our lands, our governments, and our youth.”
If a Republican had lied about being a Native American, armies of progressives in Cherokee garb would follow them around constantly to mock them and the media would eat it up.
