Sen. Josh Hawley Defends Pro-Slavery Confederate Names on U.S. Military Bases

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) blocked an amendment to remove the names of pro-slavery Confederate officers from U.S. military bases by falsely claiming the historical racists somehow help the nation “embrace the cause of union, our union shared together as Americans,” notes Raw Story:

The purpose was to erase from history erase, every person and name and event not righteous enough and to cast those who would object as defenders of the cause of slavery.
