While there is no doubt that Harvey Milk died in the service of his country, his contribution to American history pales in comparison to the Silverback magnificence that was Harambe. Harambe who gave his life in a volley of friendly fire. Harambe.
It also offers a strategic advantage: the name Harambe even whispered will demand respect, obeisance, and awe. A USS Harambe will strike fear in the hearts of our enemies in a way that the name "Milk never could. USS Harambe will remind the world that America never forgets its heroes.
USS Harambe, this who we are.
How’s about “Farty-MacFartly?”
An excellent comparative measure of the respectability of radical liberalism.
Takes too many flags to semaphore.
USS Kunte Kinte
So they won’t insert the oil pipeline in the rear hatch?
I remember that name from Roots, I’m old enough to know. But heard out of context, some may think it’s a tad misogynous.//
Hear, hear! The USS Harambe is a huge improvement!
Naming a Navy ship Milk is the thousand pound gorilla in the room.
True. Do they still even teach the Seamen about semaphores?
I wonder. They should, just like Celestial Navigation, there is a place for this technique.
Keep in mind JR’s a navy vet, Doggie? We don’t want to cross his T.
Yes they do (always had at the USCG Academy)
And the Navy does now due to concerns about GPS vulnerability.

How about “USS Pedophile?” Harvey Milk was one!
How about the Auggie Ben Doggie?
Someday, in the future, there will be a battleship armed with rail guns named the USS Trump.
