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:
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.
