@ltgovmcnally “American hero” used in the same Twitter thread as “Nathan Bedford Forrest.” All I can say is thank you General Sherman. Shame you didn’t fuck up more stuff than you did.

@mikejason73 Yeah, some people have cause so much harm to others IDGAF if they were nice to their mom or helped an old person cross the road at one point in their lives. Hitler. Pol Pot. Stalin. Nathan Bedford Forrest. They all can rot on the ash heap of history.

You do not, by any stretch of any kind of imagination, under any amount of comparative analysis, gotta hand it to Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Had someone argue against taking down Nathan Bedford Forrest statues because Joe Biden is more racist than the KKK Grand Wizard who slaughtered hundreds of Black soldiers after they surrendered, and nobody is trying to take down statues of Joe Biden. Always wild on the bird app.

@ltgovmcnally It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant & obtuse our elected officials are, both democrats & republicans. These people have no morality or values. You don’t even know Nathan Bedford Forrest & can’t see the repugnance?

Quick Lesson: In Ring ni Kakero, the makeshift Team America that takes on Golden Japan Jr. in the Pacific War Chapter was a man named Forrest, in reference to the real-life Nathan Bedford Forrest, right down to being a KKK wizard. He was defeated by Kenzaki with one punch

@GovBillLee THANK YOU! for not standing with the racist vitriol that @ltgovmcnally has publicly spewed today. While I respect his right to his opinion, the process followed for the removal of Nathan Bedford Forrest’s bust from the State House was in accordance w/ TN law. 1/

@ltgovmcnally All this political spin to defend a prominent member of the KKK, fck all the way off Randy. My God. There are plenty fine examples of people from Tennessee, Nathan Bedford Forrest is not one of them.

@ltgovmcnally If you are still thinking Nathan Bedford Forrest is any kind of hero, you need to look in other places for heroes.

Literally the only thing that Nathan Bedford Forrest is known for is founding the KKK there’s no redeeming reason AT ALL for leaving a statue of him up
