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.
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.).
All our high schools are doing that now.
And whites are smarter ?Most the people he interviews are of all races,
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.
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.
