Memorial Day soldiers ArlingtonThe New York Times chose the Memorial Day holiday to suggest the U.S. armed forces is supporting white supremacy.

The editorial complains that there are ten military bases in the South – among them three in Virginia and two each in Louisiana and Georgia – that are named after Civil War generals. Perhaps the two largest are Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

The editorial called for all ten to all be renamed.

Curtis Houck of Media Research Center says it's shameful that the Times chose Memorial Day to disparage our military.

New York Times logo (NYT)“It all just makes for a really disgusting smear, I think,” he tells OneNewsNow.

Thinking about the issue farther, however, Houck adds this would be disgusting any day of the year.

“You have The New York Times that is empowered under the First Amendment in the Constitution, that every service member takes a pledge, an oath to uphold and defend,” he observes, “they're using that to beat them over the head.”

The media analyst points out this is the same New York Times that got behind the discredited 1619 Project, despite protests from numerous historians about its accuracy, which earned the venerable publication a Pulitzer.
