Erasing History The Only Solution Offered As Cultural And Political Schisms Continue In The US

The US Congress wants to rename military bases named after Confederate leaders

In the latest development of the craze for elaborating a politically correct history, a spending bill for military construction currently being considered by the US Congress would block funding for projects at bases named after Confederate military leaders unless the properties are in the process of being renamed.

Instead of focusing on strategies to address the spiralling levels of violence, poverty and inequality afflicting the US or rebuilding its dilapidated infrastructure and faltering economy, the country’s politicians are instead still emphasizing superficial solutions as they continue to push military spending to record levels and antagonize geopolitical adversaries Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela – the only thing the various factions of the US Establishment can agree on.

Erasing History The Only Solution Offered As Cultural And Political Schisms Continue In The US

The guilty parties

The focus of their attention is now shifting from removing statues and monuments of Confederate leaders to renaming military bases. The fiscal 2021 appropriations bill for military construction and the Department of Veterans Affairs currently being considered by the Congress would prohibit funding from going to military construction projects “located on a military installation bearing the name of a confederate officer, except in the case that a process to replace such names has been initiated,” according to draft text released by the House Appropriations Committee.

The provision is included in a $250.9 billion spending bill that would give $10.1 billion to military construction in fiscal 2021. The House Appropriations Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Subcommittee is reviewing the relevant provisions of the bill this week.

If the provision is approved, the annual defence policy bill will require the Pentagon to rename bases and all other property bearing the names of Confederate military officers.

The debate over Confederate names and symbols has polarized US society and even led to violent confrontations in many cities over the last few  months amid nationwide protests over racial injustice sparked by the death of George Floyd after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes while he was being detained.

In the military, the most high-profile debate has been over 10 Army bases named for Confederate generals and a colonel.

President Trump has threatened to veto the defence policy bill if it requires the bases to be renamed, but both the House and Senate have included such a requirement in their versions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

    What’s going on with the American people? you can’t deny your own history becuase that is what made you who you are today. It’s like the Germans would want to forget their Nazi history, you can not change what has already happened only to learn from it. I think for us Israelis the biggest lesson is always remember why we stand on this land for all the historic, religious and cultural reasons. Never deny your past, for better or worse.

    • LR captain

      that is very sharp double edged sword mister Zion

      gaza was not part of pre-David israel.
      The golan was not part of israel

      philistines had settled the coastal area longer than the Jewish tribes
      The romans called coastline area Palestine while the more inland areas were known as juda. The Juda area makes up the Jewish heartland.

      as the for US they were a country built on lies from betraying the British empire to honest abe stripping away the rights of the individual states, which if the founding fathers would have allowed them leave union.

      Hell when they preached freedom for all men not, to qualify for this freedom you had to own land and had to be a man. Most the taxes the British tried to impose them were would have only effected rich wealth slaving owning land owners.

        And Syria as a country never existed. Its a malfunction mainly created by France and Britts.

        Same thing for Iraq.

        • LR captain

          but the Assyrians did exist and Babylon also did too. Thus both syria and iraq use them as the foundation as their state culture.

          Hell in fact Assyrians still exist as the major part of Syrian population today. Thus their state/country has gained legitimacy through the Assyrian population still living there. if you want to be more correct iraq should give the northern part of their country to syria.

          • Jens Holm

            Syria is a landscape name and Assyria is “after” Syria.

            Bý definition the landscape also had no coastline not even in Aqaba.

          • LR captain

            you’re a moron i spent the last three days off researching Mesopotamia cuase i was bored
            here was the Assyria empire 824 BC.
            you really need to stop trying cause you get nowhere in life and you’re are fucking parasite. IF you were living in Israel you would be considered worse than a Palestinian https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4750942632bf0e4a15cb7c0fd4c07a57f160a919677d5786c70ef94be749abf0.jpg

            That was a very violent occupation. They had Egypt too. So why is egypt not named As-Syria or Syria named as Egypt.

            That last pretender was the Bagdad Khalifat which started as the Damaskus Khalifat. It was not named Syria.

            The Mongold destroyed that and Bagdad down to the ground in 1258 and also took away 1/3 of Anatolia and by that re created a socalled great Armenia.

            I can never buy that old version. Its too infected.

          • LR captain

            you’re just a moron mongols were AD not BC where you seriously that fucking dumb to think you could fool me like that.

            also you’re trying rail road the topic to talk about Turks and Armenia. i caught that little trick too.

            seriously stop trying you are only making a fool out of yourself. In fact you and me debating this shit is only going to make people look up of themselves and find out that you’re full of shit. Thus leading less people even newcomers to site to see as nothing more than some one to ignore

          • Jens Holm

            I wrote the last pretender to the name of a Syrian statename was the Bagdad Khalifat. Thats 1258 after him on the cross.

            I jst tell You that Your Syria was based by Azzur in Iraq far away.

          • LR captain

            Azzur is still an Arabic term moron
            Bagdad khalifat is still Islamic
            Assyrians today are christian

            Refugees can move population west you know. Many Assyrian refuges fled in to Phrygia after their capital was sacked.

            just like how the radical Muslims are going to Denmark to fuck it over.

          • Jens Holm

            Thats no Assyrian population anymore. You hardly can see it in DNA.

            As I recall it the main gamechangers are the arabs.

            Many many many of the time where Assyrians posseded the are was killed by the Assyrians and also many others.

            Romans and Persians are good examples too. You might add Saladin with the 8 passportes as well.

            Thats why I deny Good Old Days of Assur and Ninive.

          • LR captain

            “Assyrian population anymore. You hardly can see it in DNA.”
            i can argue the same shit for the Jewish population in Israel

            but also like Israelis they have full population that claim decent from ancient Assyrians. If you’re gonna sit there and tell me that there are no more than i can state there are no more true Israelis either.

        That border wasnt even made by You. You not even liberated Yourself.

        You not even try to be a country as they and others do.

        After only 2 years, You attacked them and then again 1956, 1967, 1973 and with many incidents too. No wonder they took Golan forever after Jom Kippur.

        By Arafat You sold the Westbank and for that matter Gaza as well.

      ‘Jews’ have no relation to the Hebrews who lived briefly in the Levant. ‘Israel’ is a construct of the Anglo Empire to divide the ME. And when the Empire slips quietly into history, the levies will break and a furious human tsunami will erase that abomination from the Earth. Palestine was the first, and will be the last, European colony.

          Jews are not jews but many kind of jews, so Your “really” doesnt fit.

          And why jews???

          What we see for the world now is a try to moderate all filthy talk and connect it to race. We also should moderate what victories are and remember the loosers are people too.

          I have heard arabic as well as turkish muslim talking about us here in Denmark. Parts of them dont hold back.

          I see exact the same here about me. Its not even allowed to have an oppinion about raising women for sale and buy and so many men never are raised with selfcontrol, when they see a single women in the streets.

          If it was Saudi Arabia, You would have whole villages, where men had no hands.

      I agree or partly do. Its also making Yourself better then You are as a country. I also see those people actually made USA and even today are of importance for the country as well as the world. FOR BETTER AND WORSE.

      It is the whites which invented most things and it is the whites, which were able to expand to the whole world.

      No state from Africa did that.

      I would prefare they took some few away and for the rest explained what those people did.

      That goes for others too. The worst example for me has been naming the world city Konstantinopel respected as name by Ottomans into Istanbull. bull? bullies? Eastend bullies?

      Well Kobani is smaller but naming a modern railway town center into water and some goat and sheeps in the old days is wrong.

    • Boris Kazlov

      Your past is not on that land but in the Khazarian Empire, you are not semites, but blood-thirsty hypocrites, and LGBTI

      • Jens Holm

        LGBT are the best. They make no children and can work more and by that also are very good taxpayers.

        • Lazy Gamer

          Imagine the number of broken biological families right now. Now imagine the less than close familial relationships these lgbtq people have. All that binds them is just feelings, that wont be the same 10 years from now. Because society’s foundation needs to be broken for its complete dehumanization. (sarcasm) lol

          • Jens Holm

            The broken family relations are not broken. They are replaced by something much better named as individuel devellopment by education and with that culture.

            We are not farmers or factory owners dependend on land and property as well. In Our system 80% of our production is based on stockmarket companies, which is much more effective then the ones based on family.

            When women are udeucated and work as men, they are indeopendent. Therefore they are given no money at a divorse. But both pay to their children and the state pay the rest(school, health, hospital etc).

            And People must be veryu stupid if they cant see people by that can live as they wish unless they harm others.

            I see LGBT people dont harm any. I see people harming them.

            Families as institutions are highly overrated. 2/3 of all crimes are there by them or affiliated. It makes more sense, to spread out and choose who You want to be with – in relationships or just friends or work with.

            And yes some might name it as funny and name it as dehumanisation. I would never choose to something worse. But we do see all do that and therefore LGBTs are less visible.

            I have always wondered why 90% normal has to make hereashments to those people. Is herasment a good thing. I dont think so. I have been herassed myself a few times. Thats a very bad life.

            People are not asked to be born as they becomes. To me the importance is raising people well and thats non herasments and all can go free in the streets, to educate themselves and work with all qualified to the jobs and visit who they want and when.

      Why ALL Whites must DIE! The INTENSE Jewish HATRED of the White Race: What Jews OPENLY SAY!

      Jews are very passive aggressive. They hide their real feelings and
      they are careful how they talk, but it should be clear that they have an
      INTENSE HATRED OF US. I know this from my own discussions with my
      Jewish friend at the time. I began to realise that Jews HATE white
      people. They HATE US more than you can believe.

      Jews have a deep hatred especially for the whites of Europe and most
      especially the Germans because Hitler spat in the face of the Super Rich
      Jews. The whites of Europe kicked the Jews out of 359 locations when
      they had had enough of the Jewish malicious nonsense. That’s why the
      Jews hate white people so intensely.

        Exactly. Its also forgotten, that the whites didnt catch the black ones in Africa themselves.

        Tribes/countries did and took enemies and even internel enemies for it.

        Most populations in te world long time before USA already had slaves. Faraos had slaves, old greeks had slaves, chinese had slaves, arabs and vikings had slaves.

      Not so, HItler has nothing to do with this as your warped neo-liberal LGBTI, BLM, Antifa, pseudo-marxist mindset leads you to believe in those falsehoods and degeneracy.
      The Russian Federation showed the world recently that by upholding its sovereignity, respecting historical truth, enshrining the family as the basis of society and prohibiting the eulogy of deviant sexual practices, it is the true standard bearer of civilization and our last hope, while Yankistan devours its own bowels.

        They never did. Not even the Tzars did. If You were Russian in Russia You also would be in jail. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7299d93cf56c8195d489fba4b480997febdd09a10d0b74636f9cb1a1c0a6d5c2.jpg

        When Russia collapse again we already has 500 of these for You. Under an assassination of him, we got his thumb and cloned it.

        We also have Albert Speers if You want to try to save Your economy or whatever it is Engels did and none repaired.

        There might be a problem: You have to pay in dollars for the Trump reelection campaign. .

  • Although the marxists think they are erasing history by defacing our art, destroying our monuments and renaming our places, these acts will never be forgotten and there will – in the not too distant future – come a day when the marxists’ monuments will be stricken from the public square, when their garbage “art” will be melted down for scrap, and every Revrum Dr. Martin Loofa Kang Jr Blvd will be duly renamed.

      “The latest crop of terrorists arrested in Portland are about to learn that the feds are not going to placate to them like the city and county do. Seven antifa rioters were charged with a variety of federal crimes after the multiple attacks on Hatfield Federal Courthouse over the weekend. Unlike Multnomah county district attorneys, who have a penchant for dropping charges on violent protesters, these “suspects” will be facing federal prosecutors.

      The official DOJ press release reads:

      PORTLAND, Ore.—U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that seven people have been arrested and face federal charges for their roles in weekend riots at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland. …

      Rowan Olsen, 19, of Portland, is charged with disorderly conduct, creating a hazard on federal property, and failing to obey a lawful order; Shant Singh Ahuja, 28, of Oceanside, California, is charged with destruction of federal property; and Andrew Steven Faulkner, 24, of Beaverton, Oregon; Gretchen Margaret Blank, 29, of Seattle, Washington; Christopher Fellini, 31, of Portland; Cody Porter, 28, of Portland; and Taimane Jame Teo, 24, of Eugene, Oregon, are charged with assaulting federal officers. …

      The Hatfield Federal Courthouse has been a repeated target of vandalism, sustaining extensive damage. U.S. Marshals Service deputies and officers from the Federal Protective Service, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection working to protect the courthouse have been subjected to threats; aerial fireworks including mortars; high intensity lasers targeting officers’ eyes; thrown rocks, bottles, and balloons filled with paint from demonstrators while performing their duties.

      On July 2-3, 2020, Olsen is accused of using his body to push on and hold a glass door at the Hatfield Courthouse closed, preventing officers from exiting the building and causing the door to shatter. With the door broken, a mortar firework entered the courthouse, detonating near the officers. The officers used shields and their bodies to block the open doorway for approximately six hours until demonstrators dispersed.”

      • RichardD

        I’ve been in these situations several times. I’ve got more important things to do with my life then wasting time getting involved with these idiots. If I can de escalate and disengage I do. Which so far I’ve been able to do. If I have to use force because there’s no alternative if I don’t want to get hurt, killed or have equipment damaged. Then I’ll try to minimise it commensurate with the threat faced. The greater the threat the greater the force that I’ll employ to mitigate it.

        Unfortunately I’m currently in an occupation with company apps that prohibit weapons possession while the apps are in use. So far I’ve complied with that. Other than a folding pocket knife in my pack in the trunk. Obviously if you’re driving the vehicle itself can be used as security equipment. I’ve read that car windows are more difficult to break if they’re rolled down half an inch so that they’re not seated in the frame.

        What you don’t want to do is get stuck. So moving the vehicle forward and backward to avoid getting hung up and create free space is a usable tactic. And using the flashers and horn as a warning to try to minimise escalation is an option. At this stage I take work into the city if I get it. Turn off the apps to prevent new city work from coming in. And head back out of the city to cover work in the suburbs and country. So 90+% of my work is outside of the city.

        If we get hit with a bioterror attack being outside of the city is also the place to be. Though I have a full face respirator with 40mm NBC filters and a fire extinguisher in the trunk with my pack.
