#1 We wondered when this bullshit would begin.

All confederate graves are considered by law to be US veterans. Doesn't matter what you think about Forrest, he is a US vet and you have desecrated a veteran's grave.

Further action will result in your idiot asses being buried next to him.

#2 I would think digging up any grave would be illegal without some kind of judicial documentation (permission from kin, etc). Can't have that sort of stuff no matter who or what.

#3 He was never a member of the KKK and wrote letters calling for their disbandment.

#4 in January 1869, faced with an ungovernable membership employing methods that seemed increasingly counterproductive, Forrest issued KKK General Order Number One: “It is therefore ordered and decreed, that the masks and costumes of this Order be entirely abolished and destroyed.” [63]
In August 1874, Forrest “volunteered to help ‘exterminate’ those men responsible for the continued violence against the blacks.” After the murder of four blacks by a lynch mob after they were arrested for defending themselves at a BBQ, Forrest wrote to Tennessee Governor Brown, offering “to exterminate the white marauders who disgrace their race by this cowardly murder of Negroes.” [64]

#6 Could be that we seeing an unrolling of the Left's analog of The Schlieffen Plan.
I mean, assume Hillary is POTUS.
Left wing attacks on Confederate monuments are escalated until there is a violent response - and I don't mean somebody pressing on the gas, but a few dozen "protesters" shoot. President Hillary decrees emergency situation ans suspends habeas corpus.

#7 Movie Forrest Gump showed him as a Klan member so it must be true.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
