Wow. Of all times to attack our military over something absurd, the New York Times chose Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps they couldn't wait until Independence Day or Veterans' Day.
On Friday, the classless news source published an editorial that asked, “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” It was complete with a photo of a bullet shaped like a Ku Klux Klan member's robe.
Their argument was that there are U.S. military bases that are named after Confederate Army officers. They're literally throwing a massive fut over military bases being named after military officers:
This same toxic legacy clings to the 10 United States military installations across the South that were named for Confederate Army officers during the first half of the 20th century. Apologists often describe the names as a necessary gesture of reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War. 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 editorial also claims that “The federal government embraced pillars of the white supremacist movement when it named military bases in the South.”
It rejects the argument — offered by the U.S. Army during the Obama administration that “there was no need to expunge Confederate base names because the names were merely ‘historic’ and ‘represent individuals, not causes or ideologies.'”
The editorial also claims that the names were adopted “as part of broader accommodation in which the military embraced stringent segregation so as not to offend Southerners.”
The South has historically contributed disproportionately to the ranks of the U.S. military, and continues to do so today: in fiscal year 2017, it contained 33 percent of the nation’s young adult population, but provided 41 percent of the nation’s military enlistees.
That was literally the only example they provided to prove their point that our military is “celebrating white supremacy.”
Unlike New York Times, I would like to take today to remember our fallen, and all who gave their lives so that we could live freely today.

Tyrant Illinois Governor Makes Biggest Threat to Business Owners Wanting to Reopen, State Police Issue Response
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has certainly revealed himself as being one of the worst governors in America. I would definitely put him toward the top of a very short list of terrible governors among the likes of Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, and Andrew Cuomo.
Pritzker is so horrible that he has actually threatened to put business owners in prison for a year if they reopen their businesses. How does this even happen? How did we let it get this bad?
