Only in America…
Only in America could an individual find a minuscule detail of a huge military victory and justice being served to complain about.
Loretta Tuell is the top staffer for the Senate Indian Affairs Committee and she says it was inappropriate to codename Bin Laden as “Geronimo EKIA”. She claims, “Inappropriate uses of Native American icons and cultures are prevalent throughout our society, and the impacts to Native and Non-Native children are devastating”. Paula Antoine, of he Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota says, “It is another attempt to label Native Americans as terrorists.”
Alright you two, pump the breaks and give your right to freedom of speech a rest for a minute. First of all, Ms. Tuell… Devastating? Really? I haven’t seen any picture or video of kids crying over the codename used for Bin Laden and Ms. Antoine, when was the last time anyone referred to Native Americans as terrorists. I mean, Andrew Jackson probably did, but the only people I’ve ever seen labeled as a terrorist are the people who fly planes into buildings or strap bombs to their chests and walk into crowded areas. I’m all for having pride in your heritage and ancestry, but this is ridiculous.
