MERICA! Army Denies Dems’ Demands to Rename ‘Confederate’ Streets on Historic Base

Historical aspects of America are being destroyed little by little until nothing’s left.

During the last few months of the Obama administration, several historical monuments were removed from their place of honor because democrats deemed them as ‘racist.’

Obama’s utter disrespect for American history began with the removal of the Churchill bust from the Oval Office and continued with the removal of the Confederate leader, Jefferson Davis, a memorial in New Orleans.

Watch Here:

Now democrats want to continue Obama’s legacy of destroying everything that made this country what it is today.

Democrats in New York are demanding that the Army base located at Fort Hamilton remove any and all street signs commemorating Confederate leaders such as Stonewall Jackson and General Lee.

Thankfully the Army has denied this request and infuriated democrats which makes for a good day in my books.

Via Fox News:

Fort Hamilton – which sits at the foot of the Verrazano Bridge – combined with Fort Wadsworth on the Staten Island side to serve as a crucial defense of New York Harbor.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D) of Brooklyn was one of several city Democrats who demanded that streets on the base like “General Lee Avenue” and “Stonewall Jackson Drive” be renamed.

Clarke joined Nydia Velazquez, Hakeem Jeffries and Jerrold Nadler in sending a letter of protest to the Army over the Confederate names.

“These monuments are deeply offensive to the hundreds of thousands of Brooklyn residents and members of the armed forces stationed at Fort Hamilton whose ancestors Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson fought to hold in slavery,” Clarke wrote, according to the New York Daily News.

“For too many years, the United States has refused to reckon with that history,” she said.

The Army’s deputy assistant chief of staff, Diane Randon, told Clarke that changing the names would be “contrary to the Nation’s original intent in naming these streets, which was the spirit of reconciliation.”

Basically remembering people like Martin Luther King Jr. or Rosa Parks is completely acceptable, but any commemoration of historical white leaders in racist.
