Snowflakes have been freaking out a lot all over America and it seems like there are so many triggers for these people that we’ll never find a safe space big enough for them to all fit into.
Within that context (and only that context), it made total sense when the liberal editor of Mother Jones magazine suggested that native Americans should be outraged because the U.S. military’s long-range, subsonic missile system is referred to as the “Tomahawk Missile.”
That the missiles are callled tomahawks must enrage a lot of Native Americans

Of course, Ms. Jeffery wasn’t the first to freak out about appropriating Native American culture in the U.S. military. According to the Washington Post, there are a number of different “slurs” being used by our armed forces.
Some of those include:
- Apache attack helicopter
- Black Hawk helicopter
- Chinook heavy-lift transport helicopter
- Huron transport aircraft
And of course, the Navy Seals who killed Osama Bin Laden did so under a mission codenamed…. “Geronimo.”
Oh, the horror!
Jeffrey’s ridiculous comment was met with a barrage of replies from the Twitter-verse:
Only those looking for a reason to be pissed off. It’s tribute not mockery. https://t.co/wYAk08PMWN

@ClaraJeffery Metal tomahawks were based on the British Navy’s boarding axes. They’re as white as NPR.

@ClaraJeffery I don’t think many Native Americans are snowflakes.

@ClaraJeffery I served in the 1/501 Parachute Infantry Regiment; the Geronimo Battalion. We were proud to represent our Native American Warrior Brothers.
