Marine commandant banishes Confederate symbols from all Corps installations

Good on the Marines

Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger has ordered all Confederate-related paraphernalia to be removed from Marine Corps installations, his spokesman confirmed on Wednesday.

Military analyst B. A. Friedman first tweeted a document showing the commandantís decision on Wednesday.

The document did not say when all of the Confederate-related paraphernalia needed to be removed by.

Bergerís spokesman confirmed to Task & Purpose that the commandant had sent a directive to his senior staff ordering all installations to get rid of symbols of the Confederate States of America.

1. Confederate flags and Swastikas.

Why are the wingers so obsessed with losers? Or is it telling about their lack of self-esteem?

6. Racism.

I'm not sure it's anything more than that for many of them. They're largely symbols of white supremacy now.

7. They still think they're going to win.

In the last few days, I compared them to Wile E. Coyote.

2. I wonder this will apply to personal symbols

I worked on two USMC bases. whileI didn't see many, there were enough confederate flag stickers on vehicles & some actual flags seen on base. Good for the commandant ! if they enforce this it will send a message

Now get rid of posts named after them.

Iíve always wondered if it was related to the WPPA. West Point Protective Assn.

They should have shot every one of the confederate generals that graduated from West Point on their parade field.
