The U.S. Army confirmed Wednesday it won’t be changing the titles of bases named after Confederate generals.

For the military, the generals aren’t being honored because of their ideology, but because of their individual characters, Stars and Stripes reports.

Following the shooting at a black church which left nine dead in Charleston, S.C., many have called for symbols representing the Confederate States of America to be removed from government property. That call has included pressure on the Pentagon to strip military bases across the country named after prominent Confederate military figures, namely Fort Benning, Fort Bragg and Fort Hood.

Fort Bragg, for example, takes after Gen. Braxton Bragg, who started out as an officer in the United States Army and then moved to general of the Confederate Army of Tennessee. Benning is named after Henry Benning, who sat on the Georgian Supreme Court and served as a Confederate army officer.

Lets face it, most Blacks don't know who the bases were named after. Good question for Waters World at Black Colleges. That is if we still have colleges that are considered Black.

Oh, yeah, there are many; they're the ones graduating people who can't read, write, or do math (Hank Johnson, Sheila Jackson-Lee, etc.).

Theyre the ones with all the government jobs still speaking in ebonics and 'axing' too many questions because they don't have a clue.

All our high schools are doing that now.

And whites are smarter ?Most the people he interviews are of all races,

Seriously,they don't even know who their daddies are.

That's almost as bad as Father's Day in Oakland California..None of them know their daddies either........

It started with the flag, moved to statues, then street names, building names, now military installations. Liberals are never satisfied. Why don't we have someone just stand up and tell these idiots no more. Just shut the F*** up and move on.  

Exactly!!  People need to stop kowtowing to these fascists!!  

Doesn't our pissant President tweet from WTF? 

The fact that he insisted on doing the eulogy of the black pastor in Charleston was much like dropping a turd in a punch bowl. People with faith and class are handling the situation quite well. He needs to make it a political push to further destroy our heritage - as promised and idiots still voted for him - and to take our means of personal defense away as ISIS lone wolves are showing their demonic faces all over the west - even slaughtering Muslims in the process.

Hopefully they'll slaughter all the Muslims. They offend me so they should be removed.. I'm not black though so that won't happen.

Couldn't have said it better.  This country could become utopia tomorrow and the liberals would not be happy.  I believe it is physically impossible for a liberal to be happy about anything.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
