Default Nathan Bedford Forrest, Civil Rights Champion. - 09-01-2009, 05:34 PM

I would like to recognize one of our great countries pioneers in the Civil Rights Movement. In True Christian Spirit, Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest overcame the shame he incurred by not being able to soundly defeat the Yankees during The War of Northern Aggression(He, like the rest of The South, had to settle for a draw). He returned to civilian life and began mending the racial fences that were brutally torn down by Northern carpetbaggers. The speech below is just one example of the Christian attitude of General Forrest.

On July 5, 1875, Nathan Bedford Forrest delivered this speech:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I accept the flowers as a memento of reconciliation between the white and colored races of the Southern states. I accept it more particularly as it comes from a colored lady, for if there is any one on God's earth who loves the ladies I believe it is myself. (Immense applause and laughter.) I came here with the jeers of some white people, who think that I am doing wrong. I believe I can exert some influence, and do much to assist the people in strengthening fraternal relations, and shall do all in my power to elevate every man, to depress none.
(Applause.)
I want to elevate you to take positions in law offices, in stores, on farms, and wherever you are capable of going. I have not said anything about politics today. I don't propose to say anything about politics. You have a right to elect whom you please; vote for the man you think best, and I think, when that is done, you and I are freemen. Do as you consider right and honest in electing men for office. I did not come here to make you a long speech, although invited to do so by you. I am not much of a speaker, and my business prevented me from preparing myself. I came to meet you as friends, and welcome you to the white people. I want you to come nearer to us. When I can serve you I will do so. We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment. Many things have been said about me which are wrong, and which white and black persons here, who stood by me through the war, can contradict. Go to work, be industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I'll come to your relief. I thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for this opportunity you have afforded me to be with you, and to assure you that I am with you in heart and in hand." (Prolonged applause.)
End of speech.

America needs more Americans like General Nathan Bedford Forrest in order for our great nation to have true racial equality.

God Bless

Even today, Major General Forrest's words are a true inspiration. His founding of openly active paramilitary organizations to keep the peace in the war-torn South following the exit of federal troops in 1876 likely averted a crisis and saved many sass-talking Negroes from fatally overstepping their bounds like Emmet Till.

Tell me, has anyone ever seen a kinder, more friendly face than this?



Forrest City, Arkansas is named in Major General Forrest's honor, and serves today as a testament to the benificence that he bestowed on a hopelessly inferior race.

Major General Forrest is truly one of the great pioneers of race relations in the late 19th and early 20th Century, along with Orval Faubus, George Wallace, Ty Cobb, David Duke, Strom Thurmond, George Allen, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Eugene Talmadge.

GLORY!!

NBF was truly a great fellow (though perhaps not frugal with horses).

Some sort of social group or gentleman's club should be formed in his honour.

Always makes me glad I'm not a schvartze this sort of stuff does!

1 Thessalonians 2:14 ... the Jews:
2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: 2:16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.

When you consider it was 1875, and he was encouraging Negroes to get jobs alongside white folk, that's quite a statement. After all, this is even before Negroes were declared fully human!

I had no idea Forrest was such a "progressive".

Why is it all the black folk hate him and call him a bigot?


Bible boring? Nonsense!
Try Bible in a Year with Brother V, or join Shirlee and the kids as they discuss Real Bible Stories!
You can't be a Christian if you don't know God's Word!

General Forrest was wrongly considered the first Grand Wizard of the KKK. First of all, he was much too smart to ever associate with a bunch of white trash idiots. Secondly, this rumor is attributed to his war time nickname, "The Wizard of the Saddle". He was called that by yankees due to his cunning as a cavalry officer. Also, he never admitted to being a member of the Klan. Once he made an estimate of the number of Klan members in Tennesee, and said he could raise more men than that himself.
At least the nigra mayor of Memphis recognizes General Forrests efforts. The good mayor refused to have his memorial removed.
