    Army’s Apache under assault: PC police call helicopter’s name racist

    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.

    Kevin Schooler wrote: “What floors me is that for the most part, it isn’t American Indians who are offended. It is guilt-ridden white liberals being offended on their behalf. How’s that for paternalism?”

    Should we change the Militaries use of Native American tribal names?

    You GOT to be kidding me.


    It's called Apache because it is BADASS, like Apaches. Badass isn't insulting, unless you're some kinda wuss.



    Ye gawd, this PC crap has gone insane...

    Depends on whether or not we want to project consistency in our political correctness.

    I'm going to say the PC crowd won't give this any attention, unless they can get the Redskins to change their name.
