    House defense bill would prevent use of Confederate names for military bases and ship

    The House of Representatives adopted an amendment Thursday to its annual National Defense Authorization Act that would prohibit the Pentagon from naming military assets after anything related to the Confederacy.



    Amendment 628 was sponsored by Reps. Gregory Meeks and Joyce Beatty, both Democrats, and approved by voice vote. The amendment would prevent Department of Defense assets, such as bases and ships, from being named after Confederate era leaders or locations.


    “The Secretary of Defense may not give a name to an asset that refers to ... the Confederate States of America ... including any name referring to a person who served or held leadership within the Confederacy or a city or battlefield significant because of a Confederate victory,” the amendment reads.


    The amendment considers Pentagon assets to be “any base, installation, facility, aircraft, ship, equipment, or any other property” controlled by the Department of Defense.



    According to Military.com, 10 army bases are named after Confederate officers: Fort Benning, Fort Bragg, Fort Hood, Fort Lee, Fort Polk, Fort Gordon, Fort Pickett, Fort A.P Hill, Fort Rucker, and Camp Beauregard.



    While the amendment bans future naming of Pentagon property after the Confederacy, it is unclear how existing ships and bases would be affected.


    This proposal comes as the culture war surrounding Confederate monuments and names is heating up. According to the Smithsonian, localities throughout the United States have torn down at least 110 Confederate monuments since 2015.


    This contentious amendment is just one of hundreds the House is considering for their version of the National Defense Authorization Act. The Republican-controlled Senate passed their version in late June with bipartisan support.....snip~

    The Demos keep pushing with the Culture War. If Repubs in the Senate don't block this.....The Deviates will then look to change the bases and ship we do have with Confederate names.

    There is quite a bit more here than pandering. This represents an attack on our heritage. Decades of fostering racial resentment and hatred for white America have consequences. Nancy Pelosi, for example, is beginning to understand that.

    Certainly the Democrats are trying to create a wider racial divide. That’s been their goal for generations.

    They've succeeded in spades (no pun intended) but I have to admit I'm of two minds about this. I find it satisfying that the likes of Nancy and other white Democrats have to face the consequences of their short sighted and ultimately suicidal political strategy.

    Good for them. I’m sure no-one would want any military asset to be named after the Taliban, so there should be no issue here, irregardless of those that whine about “heritage”.

    Now, I’m sure those that resent my comment will clutch their pearls tightly, but I really don’t give a $#@!.
    “Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future”

    The Taliban isn’t an important element of our nation’s history.

    I do not know. Of course Confederacy was evil.

    Identity Politics is a great wrong. At that time the main form of Identity Politics was White Nationalism.

    Democratic Party today disavows old identity politics, but they embrace new identity politics. Democrats are the modern version of Confederacy.

    It was used as an example, so if the Taliban was an “important element” of our nation’s history, you would have no problem with military assets, that is funded by your taxpayer’s money, to have their name on them?

    I suspect not.

    Identity politics has never been about nationalism, white or otherwise.
