    Two senators revoking Medal of Honor medals for Wounded Knee massacre

    2 senators back revoking Wounded Knee medals for US soldiers

    FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Two Democratic senators plan to introduce a companion bill to a U.S. House measure to revoke Medals of Honor for soldiers who participated in the 1890 Wounded Knee massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

    Medals of Honor were given to 20 soldiers for participating in the massacre that killed an estimated 250 Native Americans, many of whom were women and children.

    Unfortunately all of the people who participated in the genocide of Native Americans during the 19th Century are no longer around to get their just deserts.

    Very bad idea.

    This will open up a can of worms.

    Was the Medal of Honor given out during the Vietnam War?

    If so, should they all be revoked?

    This is one reason why people dislike SOME Dems.

    SOME Dems are always looking for an excuse to show how "woke" they are.

    Let sleeping dogs lie is usually the wisest policy in life.

    An act of retroactive wokeness.

    like many liberal schemes-it will allow the people who did this to pretend they are morally superior above others, and pander to like minded SJWs who think societal justice has been advanced by such idiocy
