Even though President Barack Obama also turned down the same exact idea of renaming military bases that have been named for Confederate generals in 2015.
The moment President Donald Trump rejected the idea, Democrats with their mainstream media cohorts and social media mob in tow, immediately pounced claiming this PROVES Trump’s a racist.
But as you know when it comes to Trump deranged liberal Democrats… ‘Feelings’ are far more important than ‘Facts.’
Today, while America is dealing with the aftermath of the horrific murder of George Floyd while he was handcuffed and in Minneapolis police custody.
The Democrats claim that the renewed idea of renaming these Confederate named bases stems from the brutal murder of George Floyd
The renewed effort to rename bases is, according to the media, being led by the Democrats stuttering alcoholic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is also calling for all Confederate statues to be torn down as well.
Of course, this would be just another fake news lie being told by the liberal-biased media hoping to show the ‘wokeness’ of the liberal left, while also creating another ‘America/Trump is racist’ talking point.
We can easily prove that this latest narrative is a lie since we reported on May 25th that the New York Times published an egregious op-ed titled, “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?”.
The subtitle read: “It is time to rename bases for American heroes — not racist traitors.”
But despite this easily being debunked, as usual when it comes to the liberal leftist, “Feelings not Facts” are more important.

I Assume Obama Is Also A Racist Since He, Same As Trump, Rejected The Idea Of Renaming Military Bases?
The idea of renaming military bases emerged in the wake of the mass shooting at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, in which a white supremacist murdered nine black parishioners.
In the aftermath, South Carolina’s Republican government leadership removed the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the state capitol, noting its history as a symbol of division.
But of course, no matter what you do, and no matter which side of the aisle you support, it’ll never be enough to appease the leftist lunatic mob, and with that, the idea of renaming military bases was born.
However, when the proposal to revise these Confederate named military bases was presented to the Obama administration. The Democrats Messiah rejected the idea out of hand, noting that many of the names had been adopted as symbols of reconciliation between North and South after the brutal Civil War.
As the Los Angeles Times reported at the time:
The Army’s top spokesman, Brig. Gen. Malcolm B. Frost, issued a brief statement in the aftermath of questions about whether the military ought to consider changing the name of bases like Fort Bragg, North Carolina, which is named after the man who led the Confederate Army of Tennessee, Gen. Braxton Bragg.
“Every Army installation is named for a soldier who holds a place in our military history,” Frost said. “Accordingly, these historic names represent individuals, not causes or ideologies. It should be noted that the naming occurred in the spirit of reconciliation, not division.”
