Not unexpected, but it still makes me angry.

West Point expected to be ordered to take down portrait of Robert E. Lee

A congressionally established commission is likely to recommend the removal, sources say.

 Trump administration named four individuals to the commission … President Joe Biden’s Defense secretary, Austin, removed all of these members.

Robert E. Lee is in the bones and the heart of West Point.  He was it’s Commandant prior to the opening of the Civil War.  He is the graduate with perhaps it’s finest record of accomplishments.   Not just in the Civil War, but as a young officer in the Mexican War.  He was in command when the Harpers Ferry insurrection of John Brown occurred.   And he beat on the battlefield almost every other graduate of West Point during the Civil War.

In his abilities, his deportment (old value concerning character, look it up), his personal courage, his victories;  he is one of the greatest and finest Americans that ever lived.

By this act, West Point and America isn’t disgracing Robert E. Lee, that is far beyond their power.  West Point and the current generation of radical sycophant’s are disgracing and exposing themselves.

Robert E. Lee if he were alive today would probably accept the insult with his stoic grace.  But I’m made of more common stuff, I’ll rage about it for him.
