I wanted to post this on Monday, but I didn’t want to be called a racist for posting it on Martin Luther King Day. Our uber-woke military has decided Robert E. Lee must be canceled, and the jackasses at West Point have started removing his memory, his statues, and his very existence.
Over the summer, Washington’s Naming Commission — comprised of four civilians and as many retired military vets — came to final conclusions regarding seven different Department of Defense “assets.” In its report, the group recommended a renaming of sites honoring Confederate General Robert E. Lee, along with Generals P.G.T. Beauregard and William Hardee.
And over the holidays, the United States Military Academy at West Point began the process of purging Lee from its hallowed halls.
It’s telling that no one at West Point made any mention of all the good Robert E. Lee has done. Fighting for the United States, being named Superintendent at West Pont, and was pardoned by President Johnson in 1868.
As relayed by the Daily News, Superintendent Lieutenant General Steve Gilland released a December 26th statement:
“During the holiday break, we will begin a multi-phased process, in accordance with Department of Defense directives, to remove, rename or modify assets and real property at the United States Military Academy and West Point installation that commemorate or memorialize the Confederacy or those who voluntarily served with the Confederacy.”
Our military has become a sick joke, and I can truly understand why no one wants to sign up anymore. Why would you?
I think it’s ironic was can embrace traitors like Bowe Bergdahl and Chelsea Manning, but we cannot do the same for someone like Robert E Lee.
