Indians Finally Find an Excuse to Be Offended


The SEALs used an apt code name for Osama bin Laden; they called him Geronimo, after the Apache warrior who was an enemy of the USA (and Mexico) and famously hard to find. But this isn’t going over well with racial grievance snivelers, who have been waiting for so many generations for somebody to insult Indians that they’re ready to burst into tears at even the most preposterous pretext:

Geronimo: The U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee didn’t know when it scheduled a hearing on racial stereotypes that members would have such an emotionally charged name to discuss. But the use of the Apache leader’s moniker as a code name for Osama bin Laden has appalled many Native Americans and drawn calls for an apology. …

Many Native Americans say that while they are angered, they are not surprised. They say the code name is yet another insult in a long, tumultuous history with the federal government.

Meanwhile, back in the funhouse that passes for reality in Washington, the House of Representatives passed a bill in 2009 honoring Geronimo for the bravery he exhibited while killing Americans.

Geronimo probably wouldn’t have burst into tears.
