The U.S. Naval Academy has renamed a building that once honored Matthew Fontaine Maury, the founder of modern oceanography. It is now named for President Jimmy Carter, a failed president whose most significant achievement was ordering the failed rescue mission of American hostages in Iran.
The reason Maury had to go: He served in the Confederate Navy, all things Confederate now being the subject of a communist campaign of lies and hate.
The attack on Maury is part of a larger campaign that began in earnest after a mass shooting at a black church in South Carolina, and intensified further after George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose while being restrained by Minneapolis police.
