Trump Will Not Bow Down to Jacobin Mob and Rename Army Bases
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.
