No word yet if American flag will also be removed, since that follows same “logic”


A resolution to remove Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s remains from a public park was passed by the Memphis, Tenn., City Council.

The council unanimously approved the plan Tuesday night to dig up Forrest’s grave from under his statue at the Health Sciences Park on Union Avenue.

“I think it’s disgusting that people use the shooting in Charleston [S.C.] and use those victims to forward their own agenda and join this anti-Confederate hysteria that’s going on,” the Sons of the Confederate Veterans spokesperson, Lee Millar, told WREG, adding that the decision was a knee-jerk reaction. “To attack something like that now I feel is just really misguided.”

City council member Myron Lowery even admitted the Charleston church shooting spurred the decision.

“It was clearly after what happened in South Carolina,” he said. “It was clearly after what happened in the state capital of Tennessee.”

There’s no word if the American flag will also be removed from public areas around Memphis, since it flew over a pro-slavery nation far longer than the Confederate flag.

Also, Forrest was a proud Democrat, but there’s similarly no word yet if Democratic Party symbolism around Memphis will also banned, since that would follow the same logic as the removal of the Confederate flag.

The staff at Elmwood Cemetery, the oldest active cemetery in Memphis, offered to take Forrest’s remains, but said they didn’t want his statue currently standing above his grave.

Still, to remove the remains, a court has to sign off on the removal with involvement from Forrest’s descendants.

Some local residents are completely against digging up the general.

“We need to have a coming together of people, not a divide and conquer,” resident Katherine Blalock said.

  • Nathan Bedford Forrest (1821-1877) a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War…served as the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan…Forrest was accused of war crimes at the Battle of Fort Pillow for allowing forces under his command to massacre hundreds of black Union Army and white Southern Unionist prisoners…Wikipedia

    Confederates committed treason by attacking Fort Sumter, and taking up arms against the United States. Death was then, and is now, the punishment for treason. See Treason Against the United States, Published January 25, 1861 in the New York Times.

    There were over 100,000 U.S. Colored Troops available in 1865 to execute the surviving Confederate traitors, had President Lincoln entered such an executive order. If the Confederate traitors were all executed in 1865, the United States would have prospered far better, without the many obstacles to justice brought by Confederate traitors, such as the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, lynching, peonage, and other crimes against humanity. African-Americans could have taken their rightful place in history, and rightly taken the land and property of the vanquished. Don’t forget that Confederate-traitor sympathizers assassinated President Lincoln as part of a conspiracy to decapitate the government of the United States in a bid to revive the Confederate cause.

    Some military service deserves condemnation: The Confederacy, and the Nazis come to mind. People of good will around the world have had enough of Confederates and their sympathizers. The tragedy in South Carolina was the spark to ignite long-smoldering contempt of Confederate war criminals and terrorists, and the KKK, for Crimes Against Humanity.

    Nathan Bedford Forrest should be buried at sea, along with another terrorist, Osama bin Laden.
