US school named after KKK founder

On Monday, as result of Ty Richmond’s petition signed by 160,000, the Duval County School Board voted unanimously in support of changing the name of Nathan B. Forrest High School in Florida, Jacksonville.

In 1959, the school was named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate general with Jewish family roots, who infamously slaughtered Black Union soldiers who’d already surrendered and who was a founding member of the original Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

It is especially troubling that more than half of Forrest High attendees are African American – the school is named for someone who would have kept their ancestors enslaved and who helped lead an organization, the KKK, that went on to terrorize, intimidate, and disenfranchise Black people for nearly a century. Naming a public high school for so divisive a figure is a relic of a bygone era – a legacy that must be actively rejected. I urge you to reject the legacy of Nathan Bedford Forrest by renaming Forrest High immediately,” Ty Richmond wrote in the petition.

Recently, Israel-Firster Glenn Beck held up a sword that belonged to Gen. Forrest while David Barton claimed was used at Fort Pillow to skin Black Union soldiers alive.

Jewish historian, Robert N. Rosen in book ‘The Jewish Confederates’ has listed several Jews who held important positions in the South during the Civil War, including Judah P. Benjamin, a member of Jefferson Davis’s cabinet; Col. Abraham C. Myers, quartermaster general of the Confederacy; Maj. Adolph Proskauer of the 125th Alabama; Maj. Alexander Hart of the Louisiana 5th; and Phoebe Levy Pember, the matron of Richmond ’s Chimborazo Hospital. He narrates the adventures and careers of Jewish officers and profiles the many “Jewish Johnny Rebs” who fought in infantry, cavalry, and artillery units in every major campaign. But, he ignores to mention Forrestdue to his links with the KKK.

John Alan Martinson Jr, an American blogger (@Jewish Problem Com), in a U-Tube video, claims Gen. Forrest was a racist and terrorist Jew.

Evan Hughes in June 28, 2011 article at The AWL wrote that the Jewish inventor of Sea-Monkeys, Harold von Braunhut (d. 2003), helped KKK buy 83 guns in 1980. Read more here.

Minister Louis Farrakhan in book, ‘The Secret Relationship Between Alabama’s Blacks and Jews’, exposes the close relationship between KKK and the Jews. “Members of both groups stood alongside each other in local wing of the American Legion, which organized a series of public sporting events in the city every year. There were open communication between the representatives of the Klans and Jewish community, primarily through Joe Denaburg, who supplied Klansment pistol and sheets,” it says.

  1. Another little tidbit.

    Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro original mascot was Forrest and the team names were ‘Blue Raiders.’ A student would dress up like Forrest for the games. Later in the 70’s the mascot was changed to a coon hound and now is a horse named Lightning which was allegedly the name of Forrest’s horse during the Civil War. The ‘Blue’ was dropped and is now just ‘Raiders.’

    During Vietnam, all male MTSU males were forced to have two years of ROTC or they couldn’t attend the college. Four years of the program would get you a 2nd lieutenant’s commission and a ticket to the war although few did that. The name of the ROTC building was and still is Forrest Hall although the frieze depicting him on the side of the building was removed due to protests.

    Forrest’s jewish roots have been well hidden. Officially it is not mentioned anywhere as far as I can tell. The speculation is mostly based on his being a slave trader which was almost exclusively a tribe endeavor. I don’t doubt his jewishness but definitive proof is hard to come by.

    Thanks Rehmat for the history reminder. With Forrest and Albert Pike one has a duo in southern history that is as nefarious as it is interesting.

  2. Hello,
    I read your comment on TUT and appreciate your input.
    However, I do not believe that John A Martinson is correct. In fact, he is dead wrong.
    Martinson is not a historian, nor scholar, but a biracial Jewgro, and what he purports about Nathan Bedford Forrest and KKK is factually incorrect. Bedford is an English name and Beck a German name. Those were the maiden names of his Mothers.
    The KKK was established as a counter measure to Jewish activities via the Jewish carpetbaggers and black violence against Southerners which had the same Jewish agitators. I think if you research this further, you will find it to be the case. I do agree with you that the KKK was later infiltrated and now is discredited and completely infiltrated.
    Kind Regards.

  3. AGREED. AS A GENEALOGIST, THOSE NAMES ARE FIRST APPLIED TO THE LOCALS AND SOMETIMES PICKED UP BY INHABITANTS LIKE JEWS ALSO, BEDFORD WAS THE LEADING FACTOR IN MANY NEGRO BUSINESSMEN BEING ESTABLISHED. THE NEGRO COMMUNITY PAID MUCH RESPECT AT HIS FUNERAL FOR ALL HIS EFFORTS.
