Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Seems Fort Polk is now known as Fort Johnson…
Link is HERE
Now, I’m -not- going to bag on Sgt. Johnson. For all we know, he was a bad-ass mo’fo’ who really earned his MoH. I understand the institutional racism of the past, especially in light of the times. The MoH write up does give a pretty badass description of the events, and the Frogs did award him their version of “The Medal”
Considering that the Frogs, despite the reports, were almost as bad as the US Army back then in regards to blaqs, with only Jews being lower on the social standings, as seen by the Dreyfuss Affair.
Naming the Former Fort Puke… err… Fort Polk after a big blaq guy?
Sweet Jeebus, the Memes Write Themselves.
My photoshop skills aren’t as good as they used to be, but man, I could see putting two very large blaq dildos replacing those columns in the pic above. And in many respects, it’s not a lot to do with race per se… anyone who’s ever ‘done time’ either by being stationed AT Ft Polk or going TO JRTC knows that it’s a place that’ll fuck you in the ass, sans lube.
Between the nasty fucking swamps and the ‘skeeters that’ll drain you faster than Nosferatu, I’d put it just below Fort Hood on the scale of “DotMil Bases That Suck Harder Than a Black Hole”
Seriously. Shittiest. Place. EVER.
So… going to be doing another substack either tonight or tomorrow. Depending on work… People’s Glorious Tractor Factory has me going full speed and OMFG my days are filled chockablock stupid.
So More Later
