Alex Jones' family is descended from generals and colonels in the Confederate Army who fought to defend slavery. He is now a deluded neo-Confederate adopting the position that the US Civil War was about a tariff, when in reality the documents from 1861 clearly show that the primary reason the states seceded was to defend slavery, and not just for economic reasons. Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens' Cornerstone speech is arguably the most white supremacist speech you will ever read. In it Stephens states that the cornerstone of the Confederacy was negro slavery due to the inferiority of the negro (as he puts it).

So with this background, using Trump's pick of Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions (named after the two prime Confederates, Jefferson Davis and General Beauregard) as an example, we can now ask the following question:

was Alex Jones' late uncle William Forrest "Biff" Hamman named after the founder of the Ku Klux Klan, Nathan Bedford Forrest?
