    FOXNews.com - Seneca Nation Wants Bloomberg Out Over 'Cowboy Hat and a Shotgun' Comment

    Are the Indians being too thin skinned, or should Bloomberg resign? Or maybe they're pulling the race card to help them avoid paying taxes.

    Nothing some more cigerettes and fire water can't fix.

    Is this the same idiot mayor who is going all out to push the mosque on NYC?

    What a jackass. That sort of joke would pass between a guy and Indian friends (who would counter with an equally tasteless joke about scalping or god knows what) but essentially it sounds like he's saying they need to rob the Indians. While it is pretty insensitive on the surface, it's the stealing and threatening implications that make it unacceptable.

    Doesn't it?

    It certainly wasn't a politically correct comment.

    I don't see where Bloomberg even mentions Indians

    Secondly, Cowboys did not fight Indians. Cowboys were involved in cattle drives and did not typically engage Indians. No cowboy ever met a Seneca Indian. The cavalry fought indians, settlers fought Indians.


    Only in Hollywood did cowboys fight indians

    Something about a blind guy wielding a shotgun that just doesn't sit right with me.

    This is funny and wrong at the same time.

    I'm no fan of Bloomberg, but seriously?

    Fuck'em if they can't take a joke. No one has the right to not be offended.
