On June 10, 2020 President Donald Trump declared that he “will not even consider” renaming Army bases that use names from Confederate military leaders after leading Pentagon officials floated their support for the idea.
In several tweets, Trump contended that the bases form an integral part of American history and should not be “tampered with.”
“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” Trump tweeted. The president highlighted how “HEROES” who participated in America’s victories in both world wars received training on the “Hallowed Grounds” of the bases.
“Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,” Trump added.
The Hill reported that “Minutes after Trump posted his comments, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany began Wednesday’s briefing by distributing them to reporters and reading them in their entirety from the podium.”
“That was directly from the president. We spent some time working on that, and I wanted to deliver that to you,” she stated.
Trump’s tweets came two days following an Army spokesman declaring that Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper are “open” to giving the bases new names.
During discussions about the Army bases, other military branches have banned the display of the Confederate battle flag over the past week.
On June 5, 2020, the Marine Corps issue guidelines which banned public displays of the flag, “including on clothing, mugs, posters and bumper stickers, following up on Commandant Gen. David Berger’s February commitment to do so.”
The Navy announced on June 9 that it would also ban the flag on bases and ships.
President Trump understands the Left unlike most of his Republican colleagues.
Their push to destroy American history is part of a larger plot to undermine American civil liberties.
Think about it, the Left is on the warpath against historical figures who were slaveholders or held racist beliefs. By the Left’s logic, not only do these individuals’ memories merit erasure, but their concepts should also be discredited. From there, American civil liberties established during the early years of the Republic are fair game for the iconoclasts because a few of them were slave owners or who held unconventional views on race.
America is entering uncharted waters and the Right cannot afford to get caught flat-footed in this battle.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
