Now Leftists Want Military Bases Named After Confederate Generals to Be Renamed

It’s not enough for liberals to do everything they can to get the confederate flag banned. They apparently won’t rest until everything that has anything to do with the Confederacy is destroyed, and their latest target is military bases named for Confederate generals.

First they came after the Stars and Bars.

Now the left wants the US military to rename several bases named after Confederate generals.

… Stars and Stripes reported:

What do these US military bases have in common?

** Fort Bragg
** Fort Rucker
** Fort Hood
** Fort Lee
** Fort Benning
** Fort Gordon
** Fort A.P. Hill
** Fort Polk
** Fort Pickett
** Camp Beauregard (Operated by the Louisiana National Guard)

They are all named for Confederate generals. There’s been talk for years about whether this is appropriate, and now in wake of Charleston and the South Carolina Confederate flag, it’s coming up again.

Whether a Confederate flag should be flown from a state capitol building is certainly up for debate, but trying to scrub every vestige of the Confederacy from the public eye is ludicrous in the extreme. History is not always pretty and perfect and pleasant, but that doesn’t mean that we pretend it doesn’t exist and do all we can to completely erase it.
