#1 VA hospital repaints Confederate flag in war history mural by Cincinnatus 16.08.2015 15:15


"It’s probably a good thing there are no Confederate veterans left, as they would likely be denied care by today’s Veterans Administration.

To most Americans, the Confederate flag is part of our history, but to the VA, it’s a symbol worthy of erasure and political correctness.

Or more specifically, repainting.

The VA Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado recently commissioned a mural depicting American military history. It features a solider wearing a gas mask during World War I, as well as a jeep and fighter plane from World War II. All told, the scenes include imagery from the Revolution to the Iraq war.

It also includes two soldiers eye-to-eye with crossed muskets. One is in blue while the other is in gray. Behind them are the Union flag and the Confederate battle flag.

After the mural was made public, a call came to hide the Confederate flag, CBS 4 reports. Workers covered it with a poster for the VA Medical Foster Program.

“The decision was made that we would have to modify the painting, so we called the artist and asked him to ‘rework’ that part of the mural,” Paul Sweeney, Chief of Customer Relations and Public Affairs at the Grand Junction VA, tells Watchdog.

Sweeney claims the order came from on high.

“It was outside of Grand Junction. It could have been regional or it could have been national,” he says, apparently not wanting to divulge to taxpayers the identity of the real PC police.

The VA will now spend $200 to repaint the mural’s Confederate flag into an American one."


Winston Smith works as a clerk in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth, where his job is to rewrite historical documents so they match the constantly changing current party line. This involves revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs—mostly to remove "unpersons," people who have fallen foul of the party.

Incidentally the Confederate flag IS an American one.
