Senate Panel Votes in Favor of Assaulting American History by Approving Motion to Rename Military Bases

Published

on

The Senate Armed Services Committee, which is led by Republicans, approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would mandate the Pentagon to rename bases and other facilities that are named in honor of Confederate military leaders, according to a report from the The Hill.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren offered the amendment and the amendment was approved by a voice vote on June 10, 2020 during the committee’s “closed-door markup of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).” Under this amendment, the Pentagon would be given three years to remove the Confederate names.

This news was originally reported by Roll Call after President Trump said he would “not even consider” renaming Army bases that were named in honor of Confederate leaders.

During a press briefing on June 10, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also indicated that Trump would veto the NDAA if the policy bill had language that required the renaming of the bases.

“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” Trump tweeted.

“Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,” the president added.

Two days before Trump made his tweets, an Army spokesperson said Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper were receptive to renaming the 10 bases that are named in honor of Confederate military leaders.

The bases, which are located in Southern states, are Fort Lee, Fort Hood, Fort Benning, Fort Gordon, Fort Bragg, Fort Polk, Fort Pickett, Fort A.P. Hill, Fort Rucker, and Camp Beauregard.

The decision to change these names came during the national hysteria over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died when a police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes, which allegedly caused him to suffocate.

One Republican senator on the Armed Services Committee voiced his opposition to the amendment.

“I opposed this amendment, spoke against it, and voted no in the committee,” Senator Josh Hawley tweeted on  June 11. “Congress should not be mandating renaming of our bases and military installations.”

According to The Hill, the “NDAA covers everything from routine matters such as troop pay and how many planes and ships the military can buy to, often, the hot-button defense issues of the moment.”

“LET HIM VETO THE NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT OVER THIS ISSUE LET’S GO!” Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz tweeted on June 10 in response to the news about the amendment.

It’s good to see that there are elected officials like Josh Hawley who are willing to stand against political correctness and defend American history. Sadly, most of his republican colleagues would rather join the PC left in trying to erase American history.

Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.

A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.

Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”

Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”

She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.

Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.

Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.

Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.

Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.

Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
