I’ve always known that General BetrayUs was a shithead, but the people who continued to support him because of his military record must be feeling abused and betrayed right now.
According to Petraeus:
“Yesterday afternoon, an Army spokesperson said that Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy is now “open to a bipartisan discussion” on renaming the bases (with Confederate names). That’s the right call. Once the names of these bases are stripped of the obscuring power of tradition and folklore, renaming the installations becomes an easy, even obvious, decision.”
Today, the pretext for “stripping your installations of the obscuring power of tradition and folklore” is being done in the name of fighting the racial injustice symbolized by the Confederacy. Tomorrow, it’ll be done to ALL public institutions in the name of fighting the racial injustice embodied by your very existence.
I wish I was kidding.
We’ll also be talking about Weev being wanted for arrest, our rapid descent into Weimerica, and the other news of the day.
