Fort Lee to Fort Gregg-Adams
The commission also proposed renaming Virginia’s Fort Lee to Fort Gregg-Adams after Lt. Gen. Arthur Gregg and Lt. Col. Charity Adams. Gregg helped desegregate the Army, including at Fort Lee, while Adams, in 1944, “was selected to command the first unit of African-American women to serve overseas.” Her mission involved leading the 6888th Central Postal Directory in England.

Do they not understand that EVERY part of American history is what led us to the present? Good, bad or ugly, American history is the history of every American. Just my 2 cents…

Nope--they do not understand, Morlok.

THEY want everything THEIR way. No slack for anybody or anything.

They are, essentially, DESTROYERS, and build nothing.

It ain't over...

Robert E. Lee, St Paul's Episcopal Church, Richmond VA, June 1865


Have heard mumbles that they want to take down the church simply for it being the
one Marse Robert frequented.

Ike was right...


"Get it all on record now—get the films, get the witnesses—because somewhere down the
road of history, some bastard will get up and say that this never happened.”

He was referring to one enormous terrorist act, but it applies to this one as well.

See renaming them causes people to not learn the history, therefore they are doomed to repeat it.

Re-naming the bases is just setting the precedent for further “hope and change” down the road.

I don’t believe that any of the people who propagated these changes have any love for America or its institutions, but they also know that they can’t go as far as they’d really like, just yet.

So for now, they’re finding acceptable icons for their naming convention, but later on down the road, you’ll start seeing things like Fort Lenin, Fort Obama, Fort Tubman and Fort Sparkles the TransVampire or other absurd shit.

The left reads the works of Orwell and Huxley as instruction manuals instead of cautionary tales.
