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.
Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.
One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.
While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley”
Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”
However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.
The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed. In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.
Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.
She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.
The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
