‘United States armed forces, stop honouring Confederacy’


This August 2017 video from the USA says about itself:

The Truth About America: Army Bases Around Nation Named After Confederate War Figures

Roland Martin and #NewsOneNow are going to expose the Truth about America. #TruthAboutAmerica will feature and expose the lies and half-truths taught in schools that still promote white supremacy.

Today’s focus on #TruthAboutAmerica exposes military bases named after Confederate generals who LOST the Civil War. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there are ten army bases named after Confederate generals.

From VoteVets.org in the USA today:

Add your name to our petition asking the Army, Navy and Air Force to join the Marines in banning all Confederate flags and materials, and to rename 10 Army bases named after Confederate generals.

ADD YOUR NAME

Last month the commandant of the Marine Corps, General David Berger, ordered a ban on all Confederate flags and materials on Marine bases.

Now, VoteVets is launching a petition asking the secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force to join the Marines in banning Confederate symbols and requesting the Army rename 10 bases that bear the name of Confederate generals.

This isn’t about history — it’s about keeping symbols of hate out of our nation’s military. Soldiers of the Confederacy have a place in books, museums, and other educational centers that can properly teach – not honor – what they fought a war against the United States of America for.

If you’re with us, we need your signature on this petition today. Our military should not honor the Confederacy or those who decided to take up arms against the United States to defend slavery. Sign if you agree.

ADD YOUR NAME

These symbols have become rallying cries for hate, violence, and white supremacy. As the largest group representing veterans and military families, we have a unique voice to lend on this topic — so let’s send a message loud and clear.

Thanks for joining us,
