President Trump welcomed the Navajo code talkers in the White House Monday, to honor them for their service during the World War II, and as expected the mainstream media only focused on one remark President Trump made during his speech.
However, one of the honored guests doesn’t get why the liberals criticized Trump, seeing how he didn’t find the comment to be insulting at all.
The Navajo code talkers were a specially recruited group of Native Americans to serve in the Pacific Theater against the Imperial Japanese forces.
Starting in 1942 and until the end of World War II, the group of Navajo Native Americans devised a complex code using some words from the Navajo language. The language was so foreign to the Japanese, as they were largely unfamiliar with it. Since there wasn’t any alphabet, it was nearly impossible to be learned by an outsider.
Military historians agree that the Navajo code talkers had a significant role in the American effort to destroy Japan, and because of that, they deserve respect and a great honor.
However, the liberal media decided to ignore the guests of honor and focus on Trump remark about Sen. Elizabeth Warren. He called her “Pocahontas,” something he has done many times before, and now many are talking as some kind of “racial slur.”
“I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here,” President Trump stated. “Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time … longer than you — they call her Pocahontas.”
Trump was talking about Warren lies when she publicly said she has “Native American” heritage to gain wider support for her political agenda.
When she worked as a professor in Harvard Law, the school used her alleged background to defend itself against the claims that its professors weren’t “diverse” enough.
However, after Trump’s remark Warren immediately appeared on TV to complain about it, in an interview on MSNBC, she said how “unfortunate” it was that Trump can’t hold even one ceremony without using a “racial slur.”
Many agreed with her, with some even pointing out that the ceremony was held beneath a portrait of former President Andrew Jackson, who signed the 1830 Indian Removal Act that relocated tens of thousands of Indians from their ancestral lands in the Southeastern United States to reservations west of the Mississippi, killing may in the process.
Some Native American political organizations expressed that they found Trump’s joke inappropriate though they were pleased that he took time to honor the veterans.
One of the guests of honor, Thomas Begay, said that he was “puzzled” by Trump’s remark about Warren, but he didn’t feel it was insulting.
In fact, he added, “The Marines made us yell ‘Geronimo’ when we jumped out of planes and that didn’t offend me either.”
