The Honorable James Webb, Mark Warner, and Rob Wittman,
I just learned that the U.S. Navy is planning to name a new Ammunition/Cargo ship after Marxist agitator Cesar Chavez. This is a travesty of justice. I grew up largely in California and I remember being accosted at the grocery by Chavez’s thugs. I remember the turmoil this Saul Alinsky acolyte created in those days. This is a slap in the face to all the men and women who served honorably in the Armed Forces and opposed Communism around the world. Cesar Chavez illustrates what is wrong about our country right now rather than what is right – honoring him in this way is despicable.
Please do what you can to name TAKE-14 after someone who loved America rather than someone who worked to bring her down.
