Tennessee Gov. Signs Proclamation Honoring The Founder Of The KKK

Gov. Bill Lee (R) has signed a proclamation that honors Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the KKK.

Tennessean reports that Governor Bill Lee has signed a proclamation that makes July 13 Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in Tennessee. The day is meant to honor the former Confederate general and founder of the Ku Klux Klan, Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Governors of Tennessee are bound by state law to issue proclamations for six days of special observation. Three of these days, including Forrest Day, relate to the Confederacy. January 19 is required to be proclaimed as Robert E. Lee Day. Robert E. Lee commanded the Confederate army.

"I signed the bill because the law requires that I do that and I haven’t looked at changing that law," Lee said.

Lee did not mention whether he thought that the state law should be changed. One effort in the past to change the law was unsuccessful.

“I haven’t even looked at that law, other than knowing I needed to comply with it, so that’s what I did,” Lee said.

If this doesn't prove the devilry behind the Republicans I don't know what does. Albert Pike is the real creator of the KKK. They are lying so that they can hide the true identity and origin of the logic and Doctrine which is based on, luciferian ideology. Albert Pike was a confederate general, self-declared sorcerer 33rd degree Mason, and author of morals and Dogma and creator of the 4th through 33rd degrees of Masonry. They are lying through their teeth to hide the truth. And the truth is they worship Lucifer as Christ. It's that simple, wolves in sheep's clothing.
