First statues, now military instillations.

Hasn't been an issue for 75 years but now......

Quote:
AUGUSTA, GA (WJBF) – The move comes in a letter to the Secretary of Defense because the military installations named bear the names of Confederate soldiers.

Representative Mike Thompson (D) California, along with 21 other representatives sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis on Wednesday asking for the change. Among the list of military installations, Fort Gordon in Augusta.

The letter states, “Unfortunately, several of our installations bear the name of figures who fought against our Nation as part of the Confederacy. These designations only serve to promote a dark and divisive time in our history and do not uphold the best of our country.”

In a statement about the move, Representative Thompson told the media, “As a veteran, I know what a high honor it is to have military installations named for heroic Americans. It is an honor that no Confederate figure should enjoy. Their actions and ideology were repugnant and they should not be celebrated by the country they fought to dissolve.”

The United States operates 10 military installations across the country named for Confederate figures:

Camp Beauregard, LA
Fort A.P. HIll, VA
Fort Benning, GA
Fort Bragg, NC
Fort Gordon, GA
Fort Hood, TX
Fort Lee, VA
Fort Pickett, VA
Fort Polk, LA
Fort Rucker, AL
All the members also committed in the letter, which you can find here, to working with Secretary Mattis to ensure he has the necessary resources to initiative and complete the renaming process. Congressman Mike Thompson is a Democrat who represents California’s 5th district. There has been no response from Secretary Mattis or Fort Gordon about the request for the name change.

Georgia’s 12th district Congressman, Rick Allen, in Augusta today was asked about the letter and recommendation to change the name of Fort Gordon. Allen tells NewsChannel 6, “When you bring the military into all those kind of outside issues… our military has a mission because its a dangerous world and we need to keep these outside issues to ourselves.”

Fort Gordon Georgia was named after Confederate Lieutenant General, John Brown Gordon.

And the costs will be...

I guess that my sealed Dukes of Hazzard DVD collection and my new, still in the box, air horn set may actually become some of the last remaining signs of the confederacy. It's the hi-end 5 horn model too!!!

Make me an offer before they are outlawed!

Let the SJWs protest at Iron Mike on Bragg. That should be their rally point.

Barack Obama’s ancestors owned slaves.

A genealogist at the Library of Congress discovered in 2008 that Barack Obama’s ancestors owned slaves.

The Chicago Tribune reported

They are living in the delusion that this is what the majority of Americans want and are concerned about, not infrastructure, jobs, illegal immigration, education or crime.

They whined and cried all night on election night when Trump won and they said they wanted to understand how it could happen to fix and yet they are continuing what made them lose by a factor of 10 in the last 7 months.
