Commission to Review Items to Determine if Their Names “Commemorate the Confederacy.”

On March 30, 2022, the congressional Naming Commission announced that it would review  “more than 750 Department of Defense items” to determine if their names “commemorate the Confederacy.”

According to a report by The Hill, the commission plans to “assess the cost of renaming or removing names, symbols, displays, monuments, or paraphernalia” that commemorates any individual who voluntarily served in  the Confederacy, according to a statement the commission recently released.

The entire list of items that will be reviewed include everything ranging from military bases to stickers and flyers. These items are found at military facilities nationwide and in other countries, such as a Japanese naval base. 

“We will update the inventory list in collaboration with the Department of Defense, including its sub-agencies and the military branches, as we continue to identify assets within our area of consideration,” retired Admiral Michelle Howard, chair of the Naming Commission, declared in the statement. “This work is vital to understand the scope and estimated cost of renaming or removing Confederate-named assets and will enable us to provide the most accurate report possible to Congress.”

The commission was established through the passage of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, and was heavily scrutinized by former President Trump when it was first established in 2020. 

One of this committee’s original goal is to review renaming 9 military bases, which includes Fort Lee, Fort Bragg, Fort Hood, and Fort Benning, due to their connections with leaders of the Confederacy.

Estimates for the costs of the proposals for the renaming or removal of items are set to be featured in the commission’s final recommendations to Congress, which are slated to be sent to the House Armed Services Committee and Senate Armed Services Committee on October 1, 2022.

Elements of the cultural Left and the spineless Right are committed to erasing American history with their constant removals and renaming of monuments. It’s part of a larger plan to wipe out the country’s broader identity and pave the way for a post-Western political order.

Countries are more than just economic zones, they represent a people and a place. It would behoove the Right to understand this and start taking much stronger stances in culture war battles. 

Our country’s very identity is at stake.
