Congress to Investigate Use of "Geronimo"

BREAKING NEWS: With unemployment surging last week, budget battles and the debt ceiling debate looming, what is Congress concerned about? This.

The Senate Indian Affairs committee will hold a hearing Thursday on racist Native American stereotypes, a hearing that will now also address the Osama bin Laden mission and the code-name Geronimo.

While the hearing was scheduled before the mission, a committee aide today said the linking of the name Geronimo with the world’s most wanted man is “inappropriate” and can have a “devastating” impact on kids.

“The hearing was scheduled well before the Osama bin Laden operation became news, but the concerns over the linking of the name of Geronimo, one of the greatest Native American heroes, with the most hated enemies of the United States is an example of the kinds of issues we intended to address at Thursday's hearing,” Loretta Tuell, the committee's chief counsel, said in a statement.

“These inappropriate uses of Native American icons and cultures are prevalent throughout our society, and the impacts to Native and non-Native children are devastating,” Tuell said. “We intend to open the forum to talk about them.”

That's right folks, using the name Geronimo will be devastating to children. Instead of celebrating the take down of the world's most dangerous man, political correctness has struck again in order to prevent hurting people's feelings and leave it to members of Congress to believe it is their duty to "investigate" the situation.
