  1. Another completed task in the radical socialist’s mission to erase US history and establish a totalitarian state wherein it’s subjects know only the state’s fabricated history. Next will be national holidays – July 4th replaced by May Day, President’s Day replaced by the birthdays of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, Flag Day just gone, and Labor Day untouched, as it celebrates a victory for the proletariat. The current pronoun crisis will be solved by addressing everyone as “Comrade”.

  2. The re-naming of these bases and forts along with streets etc. Is long overdue. Just imagine all the positive local changes we will see. People who haven’t had a good night’s sleep since 1941 (yes, I actually once heard this said) will once again be able to sleep without the fear of dead Confederates looming in the shadows. Augusta crime will totally stop on the day the name ‘Ft. Gordon’ is cancelled. Drugs, vamoose…shopping at Augusta Mall will be safe again, with no fear of getting mugged in the parking lot. All the homeless and thugs will gladly search for work until they find it and thus become gainfully employed. We’ll no longer need the food banks. Storm water issues will disappear. Yes, a new day is dawning in the CSRA as CSA history continues to be erased from the books, a southern city loses part of its character and the homogenization of America continues.

  3. A waste of time and a lot money that should be put to a better use. Since schools do not actually teach history any longer, I bet nine out of ten people under sixty would even know who these military forts are named for.

    • The woke US Navy commissioned a ship named after Harvey Milk. USNS Harvey Milk (T-AO-206) is the second of the John Lewis-class of underway replenishment oilers, operated by the Military Sealift Command (MSC) to support ships of the United States Navy. At least it’s not a combat ship.

  4. It was not surprising to have domestic terrorists such as Antifa and BLM activists vandalizing and tearing down Confederate monuments. It is quite another magnitude of disappointment and betrayal to see our woke administration, Congress and Pentagon, join them in reversing and negating the significant efforts that were undertaken in the early decades of the twentieth century to bind the wounds, reunite the nation, and end the intense sectional animosity that remained after the so called “Civil War”. These included Congress officially declaring that Confederate veterans are US veterans, honoring the valor and patriotism of Confederate soldiers and officers, and naming of military installations, ships, etc. for Confederates, and the erection of monuments at cemeteries and battlefields such as Arlington and Gettysburg, (funded by memorial groups such as the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and not by US taxpayers). The term used for such peacemaking actions by formerly warring factions is “burying the hatchet”. Well the hatchet has effectively been dug up.
