Pat Buchanan: “Disappearing” White Man Heroes
Excerpted by Nicholas Stix
Purging America’s White Male Heroes
“With that kumbayah moment at the Capitol in South Carolina, when the Battle Flag of the Confederacy was lowered forever to the cheers and tears of all, a purgation of the detestable relics of evil that permeate American public life began.
“City leaders in Memphis plan to dig up the body of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest, who is buried in a city park that once bore his name. A statue of the great cavalrymen will be removed….”
I have to correct one mistake I believe Buchanan made:
“Slave owners from 1619 to 1865.”
While chattel slavery is as old as human society, my understanding is that black chattel slavery was founded in America in 1654, by Anthony (Antonio) Johnson, a black man.
