Plan approved to remove Confederate references from DOD property

| October 7, 2022

The Department of Defense has approved a plan to remove Confederate references from military posts, ships, monuments, and tributes. A working group has been convened to oversee the removal and replacing of Confederate related tributes beginning in December. The Defense Secretary lauded the planned efforts to remove them.

From the Army Times:

“I thank the Commission for its tremendous work and dedication, its determination to respond to the directives of our elected representatives in Congress, and its sensitivity to the concerns and emotions raised by this important discussion,” he wrote. “The Commission’s thorough and historically informed work has put the Department on a path to meet Congressional intent — and to remove from U.S. military facilities all names, symbols, displays, monuments, and paraphernalia that honor or commemorate the Confederacy.”

Among the forthcoming changes are:

* The renaming of Forts Lee, Pickett and A.P. Hill in Virginia; Fort Bragg, North Carolina; Forts Gordon and Benning in Georgia; Fort Rucker, Alabama; Fort Polk, Louisiana; and Fort Hood, Texas.

* The renaming of the cruiser Chancellorsville and the oceanographic survey ship Maury, at the discretion of the Navy secretary.

* Renaming of buildings and street names, as well as removal of artwork, monuments and other tributes at the U.S. Military Academy and U.S. Naval Academy.

The commission has drawn the ire of many who believe that the rebranding paints over U.S. history and undoes the reconciliation with the South that many of the original names intended.

Former President Donald Trump was a vocal critic of the effort, though Congress overruled his veto of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, with an overwhelming majority, to put the commission into law.

More information can be read on the Army Times and on the Department of Defense memorandum.

I’ll say it again. Find names of honorably serving service people K.I.A. in U.S. service who had the same surnames as the forbidden Confederate surnames. Re-dedicate the forts, and save money on replacing street signs, etc.


If a had the horrific racist history of the Democratic Party, I too would try cover up its existence.
-Ku Klux Klan
-Jim Crow
-Actual Insurrection in 1898 Wilmington, NC
-Joe Biden’s record on well, everything

Yup! Focus your efforts on THIS, Austin, because it’s REALLY important shit!

Our military has become a “woke” joke and can barely meet recruitment goals, but let’s make erasing our history a PRIORITY!

This “working group” must be composed of hand-picked retards and fuck-ups.


“Commision” is half “Communism”

Practice “Irish Democracy”. You pretend to tell us, and we pretend to listen.
You pretend to feel good with a useless gesture.
Meanwhile we continue to call things by their same old names.

See how that works? Easy.


Democrats are in charge so they can use their post CW names like Stennis, Byrd, Wilson,

Hack Stone

So which post will be renamed Fort George Floyd?


Fort Apache, The Bronx


Fort Chix-with-Dix


What do we expect from a bunch of war mongers?

The august statesmen is dead. Long live the the Summer Parti Socialiste

since the native americans also lost their wars are we also going to remove all references to them?

Named changed again, LL. Next time I’ll “award” you a board name I guarantee you won’t like.


Very few Natives owned slaves so they get a pass. Also they got over their racism a long, long time ago.

Like 2011 when they expelled all of the blacks from the tribe.


Gosh, after a 157 years, that’ll really change stuff. /sarc

Green Thumb

Are they going to pull Confederate Soldiers from Arlington?

What a fucking clown show.


Yes, but before or after these Tolerant Souls bulldoze Montpelier and Monticello?

(Don’t give them any ideas…………)


Personally I am in favor of keeping Ft. Bragg and Ft. Polk. They did more to help the North win the CW than nearly every Northern General.

Also nothing says misery like Ft. Polk. Just hearing the name is enough to make most soldiers groan; “We aren’t going to that shit hole again are we?” Renaming it say… Ft. Patton would just feel unkind to old blood and guts.


So the Army’s a several thousand people short, so where are they gonna find the details to do all the work?  🤔 


A money-saving solution for Fort Bragg–rename it after Union General, Edward Bragg:

“The Wall” Vietnam Memorial has most of the surnames that we need.


My RINO Kongress Klown Kritter is on this “Commission”. Austin Scott by name. He gets re-elected because he is usually the lesser of the 2 evils. The district is chopped up and spread out all over the state. The mofos pushing to get rid of all things Confederate forget the original reason for these Posts being named as they were. “…with malice toward none, and charity for all.” Southern Americans have long provided a higher % of cannon fodder in every war we have fought since the beginning of the Country.

“If I had known how those people would become, I would have died with my sword on hand.” “…adventurous abroad and despotic at home…” RE Lee

“Do not remove the ancient landmark which your fathers have set.” Proverbs 22:28

A Lincoln “…we are preserving these states (KS/NE) for the homes of free white people (1854)”

Next history class will be on the origin of “Jim Crow” laws. Spoiler alert…not the South.

I need a drink!
