Trump Moves to Halt Bid to Drop Confederate Names From Military Bases

Once again, the pathetically limited nature of “liberal” thinking is revealed. What matters is not the names of military bases. What matters is the dissolution of the military-industrial complex, national security state, and imperialist empire for which it is the enforcer arm. Liberals typically think all of that is fine as long as it is properly sanitized, multicultural, feminized, and rainbowized. Ideally, military bases would be called “Anti-Imperialist Militia Training Centers.” However, the success of the revolution depends on the desertion, defection, or acquiescence of rank and file military, about 40% of whom are the hated southern white, and who are heavily concentrated in the infantry. Think strategically, folks.

President Trump on Wednesday sought to extinguish a growing national debate over whether 10 U.S. Army bases honoring Confederate officers should be renamed.

“My Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,” Mr. Trump said in a series of tweets. “Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!”
