The Navy Names New Ship After President Andrew Jackson And Liberals Are Furious

Liberals want to entirely white-wash history, per usual.

Their latest tirade against the history books is when a Navy ship was named after[1] a US president. Oh the horror!

The commissioning of the USS Jackson, a littoral combat ship, has stirred the ire of the NAACP and a leader for the Cherokee Nation.

The ship is named in honor of Mississippi’s capital of Jackson, which in turn was named for the nation’s 7th president, Andrew Jackson. Jackson, like several of the early American presidents including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison was a slave owner.

“This is totally appalling,” Connecticut NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile told CNN[3], who described Jackson as “a big-time slavemaster, pro slavery, the whole nine yards.”

 

So now all US presidents are offensive and racist?
