The New York Times confirmed its status as the enemy of the people over Memorial Day weekend by publishing an article from the entire editorial board asking, “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?”
The op-ed claims that the “government embraced pillars of the white supremacist movement when it named military bases in the South” after Confederate Army officers. “[T]he 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… and confined to substandard housing, segregated transportation and even ‘colored only’ seating in movie houses.”
The U.S. Army explained under Barack Obama that “there was no need to expunge Confederate base names because the names were merely ‘historic’ and ‘represent individuals, not causes or ideologies.’”
That’s not enough for the same race-mongering paper that wants to date America’s founding from 1619, when the first blacks arrived on our shores in slave ships.
