Popstar Justin Timberlake declared to his millions of twitter followers on Monday that the people that built America “believed in and benefitted from racism.” What Timberlake posted exposes a far-left tactic, to claim leaders of the confederacy were founding fathers.
“When we protest racism in America, people think we are protesting America itself. Why is that the reaction? Because America was built by men who believed in and benefitted from racism. Plain and simple,” the “Mirrors” singer declared.
Timberlake used a post from the ACLU of Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, who was a confederate general, KKK leader, and also a Democrat.

If we plan to move forward, these confederate monuments must come down. https://t.co/j2IgZ8Nr7D

HE WAS NOT A FOUNDING FATHER NOR DID HE HELP BUILD THIS COUNTRY. Nathan Bedford Forrest was born in 1821 well after the Revolutionary War, was a rich Democrat elitist politician and a general in the confederacy.
The left is hoping you are stupid.
This is the left latest attempt to claim that members of the confederacy were founding fathers. In reality far left extremest are not just tearing down monuments of confederate statues, they are toppling monuments dedicated to abolitionists, women’s rights, and vandalizing war memorials dedicated to soldiers of all colors and creeds.
President Trump explained the far-lefts tactics on Friday during his speech at Mount Rushmore:
“In its place, they want power for themselves. But just as patriots did in centuries past, the American people will stand in their way — and we will win, and win quickly and with great dignity,” he promised. “They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery in America and, ultimately, around the world, ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years,” Trump warned. “Our opponents would tear apart the very documents that Martin Luther King used to express his dream, and the ideas that were the foundation of the righteous movement for Civil Rights.”
“They would tear down the beliefs, culture, and identity that have made America the most vibrant and tolerant society in the history of the Earth,” he added.
