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.
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.
