Pocahontas Leads Dozens of Dems to Demand Renaming of Confederate Tributes

'We’re going to see to it that provision doesn’t survive the bill...'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and 36 more Democratic senators want to expedite America’s cultural revolution by renaming anything named after Confederate officers, according to a press release.

The senators sent a letter to the members of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, demanding that the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act compel the Defense Secretary to “rename all military property, including the ten Army installations,” that bear Confederate names.

Republicans did not sign the letter, but many of them support the measure.

“The Senate and House strongly supported the inclusion of this requirement by passing their bills with overwhelming, veto-proof, bipartisan majorities,” the senators wrote. “The requirement also received bipartisan support in committee markups.”

Section 2829 of the House’s NDAA and Section 377 of the Senate’s NDAA call for a period of one and three years, respectively, to finish renaming the properties.

Despite bipartisan support, committee chairman Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., plans to scrap the proposal.

“We’re going to see to it that provision doesn’t survive the bill… I’m not going to say
how at this point,” he said.

The letter warned that Inhofe would kill the proposal “behind closed doors in conference.”

Those who signed onto the list include Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Doug Jones, D-Ala., Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Jacky Rosen, D-Nevada, all of whom the corporate media describe as moderates.

Jones recently lost his longshot re-election bid, flipping control of the Senate seat back to the GOP in Alabama, one of the former Confederate states where many still regard the South’s Civil War insurrection with a welling of pride and a sense of heritage.

Peters appeared to survive a serious Republican challenge, although revelations of massive systemic vote fraud and demands for a recount could put his seat back into play.

While the provision itself may come from a noble purpose—to rename “installations named to honor traitors that killed Americans in defense of chattel slavery”—conservatives fear that the spread of politically correct cancel culture seeking to curb the free expression of controversial opinions will not end there.

In fact, during recent race riots, left-wing vandals made clear that the cultural purge will not end with Confederate officers.

As movements like Black Lives Matter promote historically dubious theories to assert America’s original sin of systemic racism, the elimination of monuments to white-supremacist, patriarchal heroes such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln will soon follow.

Their stated goal is to create a new environment that honors the “nation’s diversity and values”—which translates to the elimination of every remnant of America’s Western European, Judeo–Christian-dominated culture.
