Progress..l

The commandant of the Marine Corps has ordered that all symbols connected to the Confederacy be removed from Marine installations.

Commandant General David Berger is said to have instructed that all Marine bases remove any "Confederate-related paraphernalia" worldwide, reported Task and Purpose.

The directive was sent out as part of a memo, seen by Military.com, in which Berger demanded several initiatives be put in place, including finding ways to place more women in combat positions and to update their recruitment policies to prohibit those with prior domestic abuse convictions.

Many of the new policies were revealed by Berger via Twitter on Friday.

"While I am aware of the good work already being done across the force in support of my planning guidance implementation, these are some of my most important matters for immediate execution," he tweeted.

The line in the memo about the confederate symbols being removed also tweeted out by military analyst B. A. Friedman.

"Last week, the Commandant of the Marine Corps directed specific tasks be reviewed or addressed by Headquarters Marine Corps staff," Captain Monica Witt, communication strategy officer for Marine Corps, told Newsweek in a statement.

"Many of the tasks were published on Twitter Friday. Other tasks not published previously are mostly administrative matters.

"Any official policy decisions, changes or implementation plans will be published via appropriate orders and messages."

The decision arrives amid long-running debates about the prominence of Confederate flags and monuments in states such as the Carolinas.

A renewed push for the removal of Confederate statues was brought on in the wake of the mass shooting of a black church in Charlestown by white supremacist Dylann Roof, who was pictured posing with a Confederate flag on social media prior to the attack.

The order also arrives after a survey conducted by the Military Times revealed 36 percent of active-duty troops say they have personally witnessed examples of white nationalism or racist ideology from service members within their ranks in the last few months.

The poll was conducted after a string of incidents in which Marines were investigated over their alleged neo-Nazi ties.

In 2018, Lance Cpl. Vasillios Pistolis was kicked out of the Marine Corps and sentenced to 28 days confinement and reduction in rank after he was found to have attended the white supremacist "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"We have the need within the country to try and create as much unity as possible and to suppress white nationalism and racism within the ranks of the military because, every once in a while, it crops up and causes an issue," Richard Kohn, history professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told Military.com.

What is 'white' nationalism anyway?
A made up term by anti-American Democrats in order to try and silence patriotism?
What happens when an African-American is a nationalist?
Is patriotism then acceptable because of that individual's color?

What a crock of long winded horse sh!t from a lying, fraudulent, communist idiot.

Sorry my communist lil' butty… even the slaves are leaving your plantation.

The meanings of white supremacist and white nationalist have pretty much merged, and I don't see where being either is being a patriot. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a volume in common use, a white nationalist is a militant white person
who espouses white supremacy and advocates enforced racial segregation, among other things, while a white supremacist is a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races.

I don't see the patriotism in either position. Perhaps you can explain without using your snarky language or moronic GIFs.

That would be why I continually remind you that you're an idiot... lest you forget.

I don't see any truth in either presumption.

We all know what a white supremacist is, what assclown made a supremacist a nationalist in an attempt to make nationalism a bad thing?

You're on the misinformed and losing side lil' butty… stay golden pony boi.

Nationalism definition is - loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially : a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups.

Explain how putting Black White Latino Asian or other creeds in front of this word makes it derogatory?
I ain't buying it [email protected]$$. I can understand commies don't like it, so I say F'K them.

I am white
and I believe America to be the greatest nation on earth
therefore (according to the heavily flawed "logic" of the left) I MUST be a racist.

is this not what you believe Lousy?

If you can’t differentiate between simple
nationalism, or love of country, and white
nationalism, then you are not equipped to intelligently discuss the topic.

I am a white nationalist, though I'm not really white, but were I black, red, or yellow I'd be a black, red, or yellow nationalist.

Skin color has nothing to do with it; appreciation and pride do.

Take it up with the Marines...they don’t want white nationalism or supremacism...l

"We have the need within the country to try and create as much unity as possible and to suppress white nationalism and racism within the ranks of the military because, every once in a while, it crops up and causes an issue," Richard Kohn, history professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told Military.com.”

Perhaps you might get Curt or one of the other literary aces here to read aloud the entire article for you so you can hear what the Marine chain of command thinks of racist supremacists or racist nationalists like you.

mouthy louse bsv:
for your info nationalism is not simple it requires involved individuals to care and protect it. It also does not care what color you are.
Also the Jarhead that came up with this is only doing this for the news media no other reason.
Didn't the Civil War end one hundred and fifty five years ago?
Do you seriously think slavery will be re-instituted in this country?
If you think that a flag, symbol or statue will return this country to slavery you are a F'k'n moron.
White, Black, Red or Yellow supremacists, what percentage of the population are included in these groups?

Liberals are incessantly telling us that white supremacy is a major problem in the United States and they’d be absolutely right if this were the 1920s when Klan membership was over 4 million people and the KKK was able to gather 25,000 members to walk through DC. That number is even more staggering when you consider that the population of the United States back then was a little over a 1/3 of what it is today. In other words, imagine a 12 million-strong Ku Klux Klan that was able to gather 75,000 members for a public march and you have an idea of what a cultural force the KKK was back then.

Today, the Ku Klux Klan is still America’s most prominent hate group and purveyor of white supremacy, but they’re estimated to have around 3,000 members. Meanwhile, the most notorious gathering of white supremacists in recent years was at Charlottesville, where a mere 500-600 tiki torch-carrying racists showed up.

Although the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is essentially a fundraising scam at this point, claims there are over a 1,000 hate groups in America, their numbers fall apart once you give their list of hate groups even the most minimal amount of scrutiny:


The KKK counts between 5,000 and 8,000 members nationwide. Back in the 1920’s, when cities across the south were erecting monuments to Confederate generals, the Klan had 4 million members. As Roger L. Simon points out, this would be an impressive decrease even if the population of the U.S. hadn’t swelled since the 1920’s. Back then, the Klan constituted about 4 percent of the entire U.S. population. Now, the KKK is near its nadir. That would make them less than 0.003 percent of the population, even on the higher end of the SPLC’s estimate. Simon writes.

Extrapolating population numbers for all races still only show >.01% are racially motivated by hate of race. So blow your racist bullsh!t out your @$$ your a race baiting POS, let me rephrase that your a [email protected]$$ POS race baiting waste of skin.
