My grandfather was a member of the KKK. I'm not particularly proud of that, but I loved my grandfather. He was a good man, and he discovered that in Brown County, Texas, in the early 1900s if you were not a member of the KKK your business would not be patronized. Papa had no white sheet and no pointy hat, and if he ever attended a meeting I am not aware of it. But as business people today join the Rotary Club, business people of his era in the south were members of the KKK. It's a fact. It happened, and it cannot be reversed, no matter how many graves the mayor of Memphis, Tennessee, desecrates.
I saw one person who said he wonders how those Memphis folks would feel in a hundred years if someone desecrated their graves for the sake of politics!
Nathan Bedford Forrest was a Confederate general during the American Civil War. That's a fact. He fought, with thousands of others - including my kin - for what he believed. That war was NOT about slavery but a war about states' rights. He was buried in Memphis along with his wife, and there is a park to his memory honor there. He may, or may not, have been the first grand wizard of the KKK...that is something history cannot prove. But, hey, guys, he's dead. He's been dead since 1877. He is an historical figure. Does that give anyone the RIGHT to desecrate his, and his wife's, grave? That is just an un-American, un-Christian thing to do, but, by golly, those folk in Memphis are going to do it!
Now, these same liberal idiots want to ban the book, Gone with the Wind. They care not for the fig for the United States Constitution First Amendment which states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The Supreme Court has proved that many times this summer!!
Presidental candidate and Texas US Senator Ted Cruz's book, A Time for Truth, has sold at an astronomical rate since it was released this past week, but the New York Times refuses to put it on its best seller list. There goes the liberal media - not wanting to admit a conservative book is being read all over America!
Warner Brothers is stopping the showing of reruns of the "Dukes of Hazzard" because of it's Southern content. They also want to do away with the top of the Dukes' car, the General Lee.
And in a final idiotic move which happened sometime ago, Portland, Oregon, endeavored to ban peanut butter sandwiches in the schools because they are racist! It seems that because it's made on white bread, and some African or Hispanic children are not accustomed to eating white bread, they feel the sandwich is biased against those children. They went on to say the sandwich should be made on peta bread or tortillas! Oh, come on, give me a break! After all, who invented peanut butter - a black man named George Washington Carver, that's who!
Hey, America, what is going on? Why are we allowing this to happen? When will we NOT be the Silent Majority? When will we step up, ask God for forgiveness, and bring back what used to be the greatest country in the world?
