Yeah, Trump needs to tell them no and then see about making it so that these assholes have something more important to do.
The House Armed Services Committee has approved an amendment to the annual defense policy bill that would require the Pentagon to strip Confederate names from bases and other property within one year.
The amendment, offered by Reps. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) and Don Bacon (R-Neb.), was approved 33-23 as the committee considers its version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The vote fell largely along party lines, with just Bacon and Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-Mich.) crossing party lines to support it.ADVERTISEMENT
“A vast majority of Americans support this, a vast majority of members of Congress support this, and a vast majority of senior leadership, both civilian and military, at the Department of Defense and the service components seek this change,” Brown said. “We’re grappling with the country’s painful past and must acknowledge that the history and cause of the Confederacy is centered on slavery and oppression. Highly visible instances of racial violence and racism have underscored the immediate need for change.”https://thehill.com/policy/defense/505567-house-armed-services-votes-to-make-pentagon-rename-confederate-named-bases-in
