A Negro Congresswoman is demanding that the U.S. Army change the names of two streets.
It’s impossible to imagine the Army standing up for two Confederate generals while Barack Obama was president.
President Trump is slowly changing the culture. There’s no doubt that social justice warriors will continue to press for the obliteration of white history and culture. The thing is that now they’re being met by resistance.
The U.S. Army has shot down demands to rebrand two Brooklyn streets that bear the names of famous Confederate generals at the city’s only active military post.
The streets at Fort Hamilton — General Lee Ave. and Stonewall Jackson Drive — honor fighters who were “an inextricable part of our military history,” the Army wrote in a rejection letter to the New York Congressmembers who had demanded the change.
“After over a century, any effort to rename memorializations on Fort Hamilton would be controversial and divisive,” Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff Diane Randon wrote to Brooklyn Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, who received the letter over the weekend.
“This is contrary to the Nation’s original intent in naming these streets, which was the spirit of reconciliation,” Randon said.
Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson — the men for whom the streets are named — both served at Fort Hamilton in the 1840s, about two decades before they became leaders of the Confederate Army in the Civil War.
Clarke blasted the decision — and said she’ll keep fighting it.
“These monuments are deeply offensive to the hundreds of thousands of Brooklyn residents and members of the armed forces stationed at Fort Hamilton whose ancestors Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson fought to hold in slavery,” she said.
“For too many years, the United States has refused to reckon with that history.”
She said that her “fight isn’t over yet,” and that she would continue pushing the Army to rename the roads.
The Army did not return requests for comment.
Yvette Clarke, the agitator behind the road renaming movement, has never been a slave. The Negro is perpetually aggrieved, egged on by (((intellectuals))) who fan the flames of their butthurt.
America is suffering from Negro fatigue. Back off, lady.
