Just for logistics reasons alone, this is a terrible idea.

Things could be worse.  If hillary had won, the transgendered military could be doing some fabulous training at Fort Ramon.

I demand that every MLK street/school/community center/etc in America be renamed immediately.  It's a reminder of our racist past and must be changed.

I also demand that the "African American" museum be closed immediately and destroyed as well as the "Civil Rights Monument" for promoting Black Supremacy.  We have to destroy this blatant racism and remove its symbols nationwide.  TEAR IT DOWN!

The legacy of those bases come from the soldiers that trained there and not from the person who it was originally named for.  Say the words 'Bragg', 'Rucker', or any of the other base names to a military guy and ask them what it means to them.  I guarantee they will not say 'that was a Confederate General'.

Here's another tidbit for the 'rename' crowd to chew on...

Arlington National Cemetary is located on land once owned by Robert E. Lee... or more correctly, owned by his wife, Mary Curtis Lee.  Mrs. Lee had inherited the 1100 acre estate from her father, George Washington Parke Custis, upon his death in 1857. Custis was the grandson of Martha Washington and had been adopted by George Washington when Custis' father died in 1781.

So here we have the most revered cemetary in the country, final resting place for patriots and presidents, built by a man who was the adopted son of a slave owner and left to the wife of the best known general of the Confederacy.  

ETA.  The federal government had laid claim to the land through an'insurrectionary tax sale' that required to owner to pay in person.  The government bought Arlington at the tax sale auction - they were the only bidders.  In 1882, the US Supreme Court ruled the tax was illegal and title transferred back to the Lee family.  Arlington was given back to Lee's son, Custis.  Since it had already been turned into a cemetary with thousands interred there, Custis sold Arlington to the federal government.

More BS from politicians!

Camp Lejune has to go as well.
He was the son of Confederate States Army Captain Ovide Lejeune.

Yeah, not happening.

No need to re-name it.  There was a General Rucker who was Quartermaster General of the (Union) Army.

The Racist Democrat party are in Mass white washing their past to become the party they want to portray. What is it? With no history, whatever they claim.
