The New York Times editorial board, “a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate, and certain longstanding values,” decided to use a weekend that we honor our fallen military to claim they “celebrate white supremacy.” The New York Times couldn’t go lower than they did with this editorial. They turned a day to honor the fallen into a political statement using the race card. They even used a KKK hood shaped like a bullet for the editorial’s photo:
The editorial’s main complaint is that there are military bases named after Confederate Army officers:
This same toxic legacy clings to the 10 United States military installations across the South that were named for Confederate Army officers during the first half of the 20th century. Apologists often describe the names as a necessary gesture of reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War. In truth, the namings reflect a federal embrace of white supremacy that found its most poisonous expression in military installations where black servicemen were deliberately placed under the command of white Southerners — who were said to better “understand” Negroes — and confined to substandard housing, segregated transportation systems and even “colored only” seating in movie houses.
How dare this leftist rag publish such a pathetic editorial during Memorial Day weekend.
