WASHINGTON, DC – GOP leader Michael Steele is in trouble for using the phrase “Honest Injun”.  To make up for it, he hosted a Republican Multi-Cultural Celebration.

Appearing on Fox News Monday, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele used the phrase “Honest Injun.”  Fox re-wrote transcripts to try and hide the event.  However “Honest Engine” isn’t a phrase so no one believed the “Fair and Balanced” news network.
Rep. Dale Kildee, a democrat and co-chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus, said, “Michael Steele should apologize for this derogatory comment.”  He went on to say “And seriously, who says that anymore?  You’re a black political leader, how are you stuck in the 1950s?”
Giving in to pressure from this and various other groups Michael Steele hosted a Republican Multi Cultural Day in Washington, DC.  Cultures from around the world were displayed in various pavilions on the Washington Mall, all as seen through the eyes of Republicans.  Steele himself showed up as a cowboy, though no one is sure why.
To prove he isn’t racist Michael Steele led the group, starting with the Native Americans.  Republican officials scoured their ranks for any Native American members but were at a loss, so several white Congressional pages sat around wearing feathers and face paint trying to “look” Native American while Michael Steele read from a Wikipedia printout.  Unfortunately he ended this section by reminding the group that there would be “a heap big cocktail party after, with free firewater at the open bar.”
Steele led his guests through the other cultural pavilions.  The South American pavilion featured a live mariachi band and free tequila shooters.  Three of the guests were Colombian and asked, “Are we going to address any other Latin cultures?  Mexico isn’t even in South America!”  Steele quickly moved the group on to the next pavilion, Africa.  The African pavilion consisted mostly of a film presentation of scenes from Roots and The Lion King.
As guests went through the rest of the pavilions they became increasingly upset or uncomfortable.  Characters representing the various cultures were all white pages and interns, clearly wearing cheap Halloween costumes. Bobby Jindal was asked to speak about his cultural heritage in the Asian pavilion; he looked very uncomfortable and had to speak from a Wikipedia printout as well.  Finally the group came to the largest of the pavilions, the America exhibit.  “And now, for the best and most important culture of all,” said Steele “the Americans!”  Unlike the other exhibits, which only lasted a few minutes, the American pavilion took an hour.
At the cocktail party afterward, Steele said, “I think it was a big day for multiculturalism in America, and Republicans.  Finally people can stop saying that we’re insensitive or out of touch.”

  1. It is now consider to be offensive due to our over sensitive reaction to spoken words. Where it
    came from"
    HONEST INJUN – "from Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, has been traced back to 1851, but it is probably much older than that. Originally it was probably an expression of sarcastic derision – 'as honest as an Indian.' But later it came to mean about the same thing as the British 'honor bright' or the American 'scout's honor' – a pledge of truth and honesty." From "Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins" by William and Mary Morris (HarperCollins, New York, 1977, 1988).
    So when you say it you sure better be and honest person.

  2. Give me a break Honest Injun is simply a reference to a statement of truth so all you folks who find it "offensive" get over it. Grow -up

    • Ok, Whitey! Is that one ok? I guess you conveniently forgot (or just plain don't know) that many racists still use the term "Injun" as a slur. Yes, Massa, whatever you say! How do you feel about that, or phrases like "Honkey" and "Dumb Pollack"? Are those politically correct? I guess you also think it's appropriate for white political pages to dress up in offensive costumes and pretend to be Indian? And offering "firewater" to those so-called "Indians"? Yes, Michael Steele, offer us the very drink responsible for a plethora of problems in my People (and in many other races as well), just like the greedy land-grubbers did. "Here you go, you lost your sacred land and are now stuck on what amounts to a concentration camp, and many of your people have been brutally murdered, raped, or died from our communicable diseases, but this here firewater will make you forget all about it."
      And before you try to say that reservations are nowhere near what concentration camps were, take a drive and visit any reservation in South Dakota…Then do a little bit of research… you just may find out that Hitler got his idea for the concentration camps from the U.S. government's treatment of its indigenous people.

  3. By the way, I know the bit about the "Multi-Cultural day" and "firewater" is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but firewater does sound like a word Michael Steele would use…

  4. Dale Kildee is not Native American, nor are any other members of the Congressional Native American Caucus, Native American. Unlike the Congressional Black Caucus, which is racist and allows only African Americans as members, the Native American Caucus is open to anyone in Congress. This includes many who are actually anti-Indian. Kildee has no business talking for Native Americans and is only seeking personal attention with his remarks and demands.
