More Liberal White Guilt … PC Police Look to Change US Military Helicopter’s Racist Names like Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne & Kiowa
When will this PC nonsense end … Now PC police going after the Apache helicopter.
How can it possibly be deemed racist to name a protector of America freedom an Apache helicopter? Or is it just more liberal white guilt on behalf of Native Americans? One would think that any group would be honored to be named after something that protects freedom.
Veterans aren’t happy with a recent op-ed by the Washington Post, which charged that the Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne and Kiowa military vehicles were a “greater symbolic injustice” than the NFL’s Washington Redskins’ name.
“Even if the NFL and Redskins brass come to their senses and rename the team, a greater symbolic injustice would continue to afflict Indians — an injustice perpetuated not by a football club but by our federal government,” Simon Waxman of the Boston Review wrote for the Post on Thursday.
He added that the helicopter names were “propaganda” that needed to end, because Native American life expectancy statistics indicate the “violence is ongoing, even if the guns are silent.”
Readers at the popular military news gathering website Doctrine Man reacted Friday.
“I suspect that the author is less unhappy that our choppers have Indian names, and more unhappy that there is a U.S. military,” wrote Alex Kuhns.
Oh yeah, add in the Black Hawk, named for a leader of the Sauk tribe. Don’t forget there is the Tomahawk, a low-altitude missile, and a drone named for an Indian chief, Gray Eagle and Operation Geronimo was the end of Osama bin Laden. So my first question is Black Hawk, eh? Dies that mean the PC police is going after the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks next? Second, Exactly how is a name like Apache, Comanche, etc racist? I guess these fools will soon be going after Winnebago RV ‘Braves”.
