NY Times Decided Memorial Day Weekend Was A Good Time To Slander Military For 'White Supremacy’

By now, it should be obvious that the majority of reporters and editors at The New York Times hate America — not just President Trump but the country as a whole, including our history, our traditions, our culture…and our military
Why else would they pick Memorial Day to trash the men and women who selflessly serve our country in uniform, many of them having paid the ultimate price in doing so?
Under the headline, “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” The NY Times Editorial Board once again picks the scab of our country’s past by complaining that some U.S. military bases are named after Confederate Army officers.
“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,” the editors wrote.
“As the official Defense Department history of this period now acknowledges, the federal embrace of the Jim Crow system undermined the country’s readiness for war and destroyed morale, introducing black recruits to a brand of hard-core racism many had not experienced in civilian life,” they continued.
“As the military opened more and more such bases across the country, the history notes, it ‘actually spread federally sponsored segregation into areas where it had never before existed with the force of law.’ In other words, the base names were part of a broad federal sellout to white supremacy that poisoned the whole of the United States,” the editors said.
The editors went on to chastise Confederate Gen. George Pickett, claiming he was a “coward” at the Battle of Gettysburg (where he led his 11,000-man division to slaughter), and claimed that the Daughters of the Confederacy “valorized” the Ku Klux Klan and ‘rewrote the history’ of slavery in the U.S.
In fact, it should be noted:
— The Klan was a Democrat creation, yet the Times never recognizes this because the paper constantly “valorizes” Democrats still to this day;
— The U.S. military led the way in desegregating American society;
— While detailing some Confederate outrages, the editors completely whitewash the fact that Union Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman decimated one southern city after another including Atlanta, leading to widespread starvation and deprivation with his ‘scorched-earth’ policies;
— Just because they were Confederate officers does not mean they did not commit heroic acts;
— Racism during the Civil War was just as pervasion in the ‘saintly’ North as it was in the South.
— Along those lines, not everyone living in the Confederacy agreed with slavery, and damned few Southerners actually owned slaves.
But beyond all of this, choosing to trash the U.S. military on Memorial Day is beneath contemptible, though the editorial board of The New York Times is beyond shaming because you have to have a conscience first.
Needless to say, the ill-timed and factually light op-ed drew no small amount of outrage.
Some of the same fools who constantly complain about President Trump’s ‘divisive rhetoric’ just accused the U.S. military of ‘celebrating white supremacy.’ How tone-deaf can you get?
