Democrats have been infiltrating all facets of government for years. They won’t stop until every part of America bows to their ideology.
And the U.S. military just admitted to blowing MILLIONS on this Leftist plot.
The United States military has been defending this great nation for centuries.
As the great Marines’ hymn goes:
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
But rather than focusing on keeping this country safe, the military is wasting the taxpayers’ money going woke.
Last week, the Department of Defense said that work had begun at the Pentagon to change the names of military buildings and facilities that were named after the Confederate States of America. This will be done by the start of 2024.
Nine U.S. Army bases, two U.S. Navy ships, and more than 1,000 other things on American military installations are going to get new names.
“Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment William LaPlante, today directed all DOD organizations to begin full implementation of the Commission on the Naming of Items of the Department of Defense, a.k.a. the Naming Commission and those recommendations,” Pentagon spokesperson Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder told reporters on Thursday, according to Task and Purpose.
Crews have already started taking down the 108-year-old monument at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia that shows Southern troops marching to war with slaves following behind.
“I think we are confident, you know, each of the services has clear instructions in terms of what it is that they need to focus on, and where the secretary is confident that the services are and will continue to take that seriously,” Ryder said as reported by Military.com.
Ryder did not say how much the whole project would cost. But the final report from the Naming Commission said that the amount was about $62.5 million.
About $21 million of the money would be used to change the names of nine Army bases in Southern states that are named after Confederate leaders. These bases are Forts Benning, Gordon, Bragg, Hood, Rucker, Polk, A.P. Hill, Pickett, and Lee.
The commission will suggest new names for the bases, like changing Fort Bragg to Fort Liberty.
Reports say that commission members have suggested that Benning be renamed Fort Moore after Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, who served in the Vietnam War.
The two Navy ships that will get new names are the USS Chancellorsville and the USNS Maury. However, commission officials have not yet given the new names for these ships.
The USS Chancellorsville was named after a Civil War battle that the Confederate side won. The USNS Maury was named after Matthew Fontaine Maury, who quit the Navy to sail for the Confederacy, according to Military.com.
About $41 million of the money will go to different roads, signs, buildings, and street names.
The announcement comes after West Point Academy officials removed monuments and references last month that “commemorate or memorialize the Confederacy.”
Over the holiday break, the 220-year-old U.S. military academy said it had started a “multi-phase” process to remove all 13 references and monuments that West Point says honor the Confederacy. These include a portrait and bust of former West Point Superintendent Gen. Robert E. Lee.
This is because the National Defense Authorization Act requires it and because the Department of Defense (DOD) told them to in October.
After George Floyd died in May 2020, there was a huge backlash against Confederate monuments across the country. As a result, many statues were taken down. In September 2021, a statue of Lee in Richmond, Virginia, was taken down. It was the largest Confederate monument in the U.S.
