    In fairness, he had to sign the bill by law. But the fact that they haven't changed this law over the decades doesn't excuse that fact. Tennessee is another one of those states that if they decide to secede again, I say we let them.

    Gov. Bill Lee signs Nathan Bedford Forrest Day proclamation, is not considering law change
    Gov. Bill Lee has proclaimed Saturday as Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in Tennessee, a day of observation to honor the former Confederate general and early Ku Klux Klan leader whose bust is on display in the state Capitol.

    Per state law, the Tennessee governor is tasked with issuing proclamations for six separate days of special observation, three of which, including the July 13 Forrest Day, pertain to the Confederacy.

    Lee — and governors who have come before him — are also required by state law to proclaim Jan. 19 as Robert E. Lee Day, honoring the commander of the Confederate Army, as well as June 3 Confederate Decoration Day, otherwise known as Confederate Memorial Day and the birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

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

    Most Governors have bigger better things to do than worrying about white washing history to appease the politically correct crowd. The Governor said that he hasn't looked at the bill that he is mandated to keep updated, and will eventually look at it. He didn't cave to the PC crowd with some kneejerk reaction to their demands and I respect that.
    I'm against white washing history regardless of who likes it or not.

    The *** has zero relevance around the country. I realize these stories are news, but these Klan douchebags are only given relevance by us giving them attention.

    There is no *** celebration anywhere around the country and if the Dems would quit giving them credence they would be forgotten.

    Funny to watch Dimms criticize their past creations.It kinda resembles the current feud in Congress.They create the monster and it eats them alive.

    If the media and the Democrat party would stop giving those scuzzy ****ers attention they would just go away. Everyone thinks that they are radical douchebags. The Dems try to use them as a wedge issue for division, but for those with a clue, we link the klan to the Dems because that's who created them.

    I lived in Tennessee for 25 years and no one talked about these statues or state days...Tennessee passed a voter ID law...no outrage no nothing not even Al Sharpton blabbing his big mouth...nope everyone showed up at the polls with their state ID...

    I’ll tell what does get Tennesseans back up...some years back the state was going to institute an income tax...black white male female all marched on the state capital in Nashville...almost a riot and the state backed off...

    It's like Texas trying to declare its own independence from the USA in recent years

    I highly doubt that subject will ever come up again

    We fought a civil war over states wanting to leave the Union but nowadays I welcome places like Commiefornia leaving. Texas and Tennessee have no interest in leaving the Union.

    I love when the opposing view is refused the freedom of speech or assembly. You can't have it both ways people. If it's only right when you do it. YOU ARE THE NAZI. Just saying.
