The Far Left Democrats who walk the Halls of Power in Washington, DC are determined to irreparably divide the United States of America.
FoxNews.com reports that
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday signed off on an independent commission’s recommendations to remove from U.S. military facilities, “all names, symbols, displays, monuments, and paraphernalia that honor or commemorate the Confederacy.”
“The installations and facilities that our Department operates are more than vital national security assets. They are also powerful public symbols of our military, and of course, they are the places where our Service members and their families work and live.” Austin wrote in a memo to senior officials on Friday. “The names of these installations and facilities should inspire all those who call them home, fully reflect the history and the values of the United States, and commemorate the best of the republic that we are all sworn to protect.”
Beginning on Dec. 18, 2022, the Department of Defense will begin renaming assets across the country, including hundreds of streets, buildings and other assets.
Among the changes is the renaming of nine Army posts: Forts Benning and Gordon in Georgia; Forts Lee, A.P Hill and Pickett in Virginia; Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Rucker in Alabama, Fort Polk in Louisiana and Fort Hood in Texas.
According to the commission’s report, Fort Benning will be named Fort Moore; Fort Polk will be renamed Fort Johnson; Fort Bragg will become Fort Liberty; Fort Gordon will become Fort Eisenhower; Fort Hood will become Fort Cavazos; Fort Lee will become Fort Gregg-Adams; Fort Pickett will become Fort Barfoot; Fort Rucker will be renamed to Fort Novosel.
Navy ships USS Chancellorsville and USNS Maury will also be renamed. Carlos Del Toro, the secretary of the Navy, will decide on the new names.
The federally mandated Naming Committee estimated the undertaking to cost as much as $62.5 million, according to Stars and Stripes.
I was watching Fox and Friends before I left for work yesterday and someone made the point that since the Biden Administration has turned our Armed Forces into Lab Rats for Wokeness Social Engineers, recruiting is down 25%.
It appears that the new “Woke” Armed Forces under the guidance of the Biden Administration is not as popular as the Far Left Brain Trust though that it would be.
Anyway, besides the obvious fact that the Far Left Democrats are erasing history on purpose, like all Marxist Totalitarian Governments have before them, in order to keep the masses uneducated and pliant, why are the Far Left Democrats trying to erase Southern History?
In every single presidential election, since I first voted for Future President Ronald Reagan in November of 1980, the voters of the South have proven to be the linchpin upon which all presidential candidates’ victory depended upon.
If you were able, as a Democrat or a Republican, to get the voters of the South to cast their ballots for you, you became the President of the United States of America.
The South, to this day, remains essential to winning the White House.
The Liberals in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, alike, or the Vichy Republicans, as I call them, are all too aware of this political fact.
However, those who believe that the South, in the Year of Our Lord 2022, is still backwards, or somehow inferior to their point of view, or political ideology, have jumped at the effort to negate a period of our history in which American blood on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line was shed in combat.
Why have these Far Left Democrat Politicians, along with Antifa and BLM, shifted the focus of the nation away from the incompetency and mental deterioration of President Joe Biden and created a cancel culture reminiscent of the Russian Revolution and the history-destroying Middle Eastern Rampage of ISIS?
Simple: Political Expediency.
By marginalizing the South as a part of this effort, the Far Left Democrats, from Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi on down the line, are hoping to diminish and possibly negate the leverage that Southern States have in molding the Political Landscape of America.
Even after the last 6 years of the Democrats’ continuous attacks on President Trump, “MAGA” Conservatives” and the American way of life, America is still a Center-Right Nation.
Through their efforts in the National Education System to indoctrinate American Children into despising what America has always stood for, these politicians and their minions hoped to swing the Political Pendulum toward their side of the Political Aisle and to create a “Democratic Socialist” (i.e., Marxist) country.
They know that, if somehow, they can place the Southern States in a “bad light” and at a Political Disadvantage, that perhaps our voice in the political affairs of this nation, will not carry as much weight.
Plus, between you and me and the water cooler, Liberals in the Northern and Western States remain ticked off that both American and International Businesses are still relocating to the South, where the climate is friendlier, the Unions have not made the cost of doing business unprofitable, and, where Old-Fashioned American Work Ethic still exists.
These Southern Americans, whom the virtue-signaling Far Left and Vichy Republicans seek to dishonor and hide away, like Bill Clinton’s little black book, were flawed men, as well.
However, the Federal Government recognizes them as United States of America Veterans.
” Every soldier’s grave made during our unfortunate civil war [sic] is a tribute to American valor… And the time has now come… when in the spirit of fraternity we should share in the care of the graves of the Confederate soldiers… and if it needed further justification it is found in the gallant loyalty to the Union and the flag so conspicuously shown in the year just passed by the sons and grandsons of those heroic dead.” …President William McKinley, 14 December 1898.
The names of the Military Bases, like the statues which the Far Left have already removed from sight, MUST be left alone, to serve as a reminder of mistakes made, by NORTH and South, and as a reminder that, like a family often does, we fight among ourselves, but our true strength lies in forgiveness, compassion. courage, and integrity.
Four character traits that both the Far Left Democratic Party and Modern American Liberals in general seemingly have forsaken in their quest to restore power to their minority political ideology.
Character traits which they had better suck up and find soon, because the young fascists of Antifa and BLM could very well turn on them after they are through treating them as “useful idiots”
And their “feelings” won’t matter at all.
Until He Comes,
