If you think Napoleon Bonaparte was a military genius because he defeated both the Austrian and Russian armies at Austerlitz in 1805 then that must make you a French imperialist. Likewise if you believed that Erwin Rommel was a good general for accomplishing a lot with limited resources then you must be an admirer of the policies of the Third Reich. Oh, and you there. You think that Georgy Zhukov and Vo Nguyen Giap were great generals? Okay, that makes you a lousy Commie!
Ridiculous, right? But no more ridiculous than Politico and the Washington Post slamming President Donald Trump for mentioning that Robert E. Lee was a great general. Of course, the whole point of the story that Trump told at his rally in Lebanon, Ohio on Friday night was to illustrate the greatness their native son, General Ulysses S. Grant, in finally defeating Lee. After all it wouldn't have been a great accomplishment if Lee were only a mediocre general.

“Accusations” only count when someone cares...I don’t.
Apparently Trump also has to do the American History Teaching that the commie-fas don’t want to do.
150 years after the Civil War, the Communists want to stir it up again. For 150 years we honored ALL of our American fathers, brothers, husbands and sons that sacrificed on the fields of battle. They did their duty, and now those who never wore a uniform are desecrating their memory, their sacrifices, and their graves. Dispicable!
They get away with that krep because they know for a fact that their audience has no knowledge of history and can barely read.
Nice going, Democrat-Socialist- Communists.
They aren’t media they are just Democrats. And the facts are Lee was a great general and a greatly respected man as well.
PC ‘thought crimes’ are the bottom - the Washington Post is officially unhinged.
Lincoln was extremely angry that none of his generals could defeat Lee. Allegedly, one Union general responded: “First, we have to get over the (A.P.) Hill, then march down a Longstreet and climb over a Stonewall (Jackson) just to engage him.”
How is it that the men who fought against Robert E. Lee have more respect for him than these jerkoffs?
The Left has a pathological hatred of the South and of White Southerners. The South has always championed limited government and decentralized power. This is anathema to Leftists.
Patton thought Rommel was a magnificent bastard. . . . he even read his book!

Those despicable people would no doubt want to excoriate President Lincoln because he directed a military band to play Dixie on the lawn of the White House following the conclusion of hostilities at Appomattox.

The “Jerk-offs” would be astonished to learn that Congress passed a Resolution according Confederate veterans the same recognition and benefits as Union veterans. And that there is a section in Arlington Cemetery where Civil War soldiers have been laid to rest. IDIOT ANTI-AMERICANS!
DJT, our POTUS, Greatest Leader of the World’s countries is the MASTER TROLLER of the Left and MSM (one and the same).
I hioe our POTUS makes them scream, and I luje to see the Proud Boys and other patriots deend themselves against their ku klux klan retreads: ANTIFA.
Trump is deliberately causing Leftist programming to error out. This can’t be coincidence, to happen so many times, in the exact same way.
Lee was a great General and Lincoln offered him overall command of the Army. Lee was also did not think secession was constitutional.
Let him go....he’s on a roll.
