Why am I not surprised...

...that the State of Mississippi is about to issue a commemorative license plate honoring... the founder of the KKK?

Note that Nathaniel Bedford Forrest wasn't just a short-term member of the KKK. He *founded* the damned thing, which is another level altogether over Robert Byrd and Hugo Black, both of whom were junior-level KKK members for only a short amount of time.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
