A New Day For Jingoism

Want to hazard a guess who said this today?

“It has been suggested that we should rename as many as 10 of our Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc. These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom...The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations. Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!”

It is, of course, respecting our military to name its bases after guys who killed 350,000 of them.  And let us be clear; these ten Confederate generals do not have a history of winning; they have a history of losing. They do not have a history of victory; they have a history of defeat.  And they do not have a history of freedom; they fought and betrayed our country for the exact opposite. 

What they do have a history of is hatred, violence and treason. 

And that is what Trump really wants to be a part of.
