What we’re witnessing with this mad rush to erase American history from everything is the actions of a party with no power trying to remain relevant. Democrats never even considered doing any of this when they were in power but now they’re acting like this is a national emergency.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democrats move to strip military bases of Confederate names
House and Senate Democrats are pushing bills to strip the names of Confederate generals from Army base names and other military properties.
Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., a Congressional Black Caucus member, is working on a bill that would mandate military installations be renamed in order to no longer celebrate men who fought for slavery’s continuance. Ten House Democrats from New York and New Jersey have signed on.
“Naming military property after armed insurrectionists with American blood on their hands is an affront to members of the Armed Forces, many of whom are people of color, who take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution,” Clarke said. “There are an ample number of meritorious members of the Armed Forces, who loyally served the United States, for whom military property could and should be named.”
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., also plans to introduce a bill that would require Confederate leaders be removed from inside the U.S. Capitol building, according to a McClatchy report Thursday.
This is pointless. It doesn’t do anything to help the American people who are still hurting financially. It doesn’t help the military, either. It’s political theater, nothing more.
