The new Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library is a $10 million, 21,000 square-foot facility that makes Mississippi State University one of only six universities in the country host of a Presidential Library. But with the opening on November 30, MSU and Mississippi politicians surrendered the state’s pride.
With an order issued from Oxford, Grant kicked Jews out of the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi under the threat of arrest. He also described “the Israelites” as “an intolerable nuisance.”
The U.S. Grant Library is Mississippi’s second Presidential Library. The Magnolia State’s true and rightful Presidential Library is in Biloxi, the Jefferson Davis Presidential Library at Beauvoir. Davis was born in Kentucky but moved to Mississippi at a young age. After graduating from West Point Academy, Davis represented Mississippi in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, he was the Secretary of War, and Jefferson Davis was the last Senator to resign and leave the Senate before the Civil War. He served as President of the Confederate States of America for four years.
Locating the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library in Mississippi would be tantamount to putting a monument to fiery Andrew Jackson on an Indian Reservation—it’s the wrong place for it. The Grant Library in Starkville honors the man who crushed Mississippi. Don’t expect any questions as to the appropriateness from the liberal left, it’s the wrong fight for them. Social Justice Warriors and Antifa would be outraged if they didn’t hate white men and Southerners so much.
The current state of Southern politics at the close of 2017 is a Second Reconstruction. The Confederate Battle Flag is stigmatized as the Nazi Swastika. Historic monuments funded and erected by Southerners to commemorate Southern veterans after the end of Reconstruction are being removed. And the anti-Semitic drunken butcher commander of the Union Army is now honored in the Deep South land he conquered. The heritage and culture in the South is being erased at a very fast pace. The War of Northern Aggression wages on.
