Cruz calls on Tennessee to change law honoring early KKK leader

Sen. Ted Cruz called on Tennessee to change a law honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest, a former Confederate general. ’He was also a slave trader & the 1st Grand Wizard of the KKK’, Cruz tweeted Friday. This comes after Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a proclamation marking Saturday as Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in the Volunteer State.

It's ok guys he was a Democrat, everyone knows democrats are incapable of being racist (even though he owned slaves and was a grand wizard of the KKK)! Reparations, amirite? ✊

No one is perfect. Bad people can do good things. Why not honor him for the good he did? Gandhi was a racist cunt too, particularly in his early life, yet we still honor him for the good he did. I see no problem with this.

Its one thing to honor someone who has faults. It is another to honor someone whos major identity is a negative stroke of our history. There are so many people to honor that ARENT people of questionable morals, we should be noticing.
