wow a governor considers the founder of the KKK as a right wing hero... and the right wingers love it.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/tennessee-gov-bill-lee-honors-kkk-grand-wizard-proclamation-213013165.html
Quote:

Despite public outcry, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) re-signed a proclamation Thursday declaring July 13 as Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in the state, honoring the Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and former Confederate general.

Each year, according to state law, the governor is supposed to sign six such proclamations for days of observation, three of which are in honor of the Confederacy, according to The Tennessean. Though they’re mostly symbolic, the governor says he signs them out of a sense of duty.

“I signed the bill because the law requires that I do that and I haven’t looked at changing that law,” Lee told The Tennessean on Thursday.

His decision was roundly panned by the media. New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie tweeted: “Very cool that Tennessee has a day honoring a confederate war criminal and founder of America’s oldest and deadliest terrorist group.”

Forrest is known to history as a bloodthirsty slave trader and the KKK’s very first grand wizard. In 1864, he led Confederate soldiers to commit what’s known as the Fort Pillow Massacre, according to The Washington Post. Three hundred Union soldiers, including 200 black soldiers, were murdered there, often at point-blank range.

Residents have been petitioning to remove two statues of Forrest ― including a bust from the state Capitol ― for years. But Lee defends Confederate monuments and the Ku Klux Klan as “part of our history.”

Tennessee has 99 monuments to the Confederacy, so celebration of treason is not new. But that is well behind Virginia with 247 and North Carolina with 170. The white nationalist right are willing to resort to violence to protect those sites, and the current President has described them as “good people.”

Not really surprising that some in the south find an “f word” from a soccer player more disturbing than statues of traitors commemorating a violent assertion of white supremacy.

After online threats, FBI agents arrest Ohio teen in home with dozens of guns, 10,000 rounds of ammo


Quote:
FBI agents arrested 18-year-old Justin Olsen, of Boardman, Ohio, on a federal charge of threatening to assault a federal law enforcement officer. Agents began investigating Olsen early this year after discovering his “ArmyOfChrist” social media account on iFunny, where he expressed support for mass shooters, disdain for federal agents, and admiration for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.


Olsen admitted to Tsarnas during his arrest that he posted comments about violence on iFunny from his cellphone but said they were “only a joke,” the affidavit says. He said the comments regarding shooting federal agents were “a hyperbolic conclusion based on the results of the Waco siege … where the ATF slaughtered families,” according to the affidavit.

sounds like right wingers homes from this forum

Quote:
When officers went to Olsen’s father’s house on Aug. 7, they saw about 300 rounds of ammunition on the stairway leading to the second floor. They entered the home for a safety sweep, seeing a computer and iPad in Olsen’s room. In another bedroom, they found rifle cases, thousands of rounds of ammunition, camouflage clothing and camouflaged backpacks, along with a large gun vault, the affidavit states.

Inside the vault were AR-15-style rifles and shotguns.

In all, the search of the house resulted in the seizure of 15 rifles, some of which were assault-style, as well as 10 semi-automatic pistols and an estimated 10,000 rounds of ammunition, according to the affidavit. Authorities also found a machete in the trunk of Olsen’s car.
