The New York Times is a far left publication, and everyone knows this.
Even so, they sometimes advance a narrative that’s so grotesque that it’s shocking.
It is Memorial Day, a time when we remember those who gave their lives defending the United States of America. We celebrate these heroes for their selflessness, their sacrifice, and their dedication to protecting freedom.
The New York Times thought this would be a perfect time to accuse the U.S. Military of celebrating white supremacy.
New York Times on Memorial Day: The U.S. Military Celebrates White Supremacy
The New York Times editorial board published a column this weekend that asked readers to consider, “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” At the crux of their argument, the board, self-described as “a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values,” says that military bases in the southern states bearing the names of Confederate leaders should be renamed.
“It is time to rename bases for American heroes — not racist traitors,” the article promises readers as its thesis. To support the argument, the writers compare the history of the Confederacy to modern day white supremacy and draw on the 2015 massacre in South Carolina as proof to support that claim.
Dylann Roof, who killed nine people attending church in Charleston in the name of wanting to begin a race war, was convicted of multiple hate crimes and murder. He is currently awaiting execution for his heinous acts…
“Apologists often describe the names as a necessary gesture of reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War,” the board writes. “In truth, the namings reflect a federal embrace of white supremacy that found its most poisonous expression in military installations.”
What is WRONG with these people?
The New York Times celebrates Memorial Day by equating the United States military to the Ku Klux Klan. Is anyone surprised anymore? https://t.co/xrLB4Ja29e

From The New York Times.
On Memorial Day weekend.
This is so disrespectful to all who have served and lost their lives for our great country.
Look at this headline and photo and tell me these people don’t hate America. Gross.https://t.co/LW7vpX7TND

Leave it to the pathetic anti American New York Times to publish this headline about the US military on Memorial Day Weekend. Unconscionable and evil. https://t.co/4pn17WLXyc

On Memorial Day weekend when we take the time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, the New York Times has the audacity to equate the military to the KKK.

Our military heroes deserve so much better.
