In this short little op-ed piece he used the following Logical Fallacies.

Strawman- He posits that the Confederates motivations are the same as terrorists, then rails against how bad terrorists are so therefore Confederates = terrorists.

False Dilemma - Confederates are either terrorists or they are perfectly fine in their motivations etc. There can be no middle ground with this. "Confederates as heroic figures who should be honored and revered"

Appeal to the Crowd/People - Nazis and Terrorists were always bad in their motivations. (Then use the Strawman that Confederates are essentially Nazis or Terrorists)

I shouldn't be surprised by this guy being so angry at confederates, he is (Ad Hominem/Poisoned Well Falacy) a black guy so he's not really looking at this from an unbiased point of view.

The sad thing is that he got paid for that shit article and has no problem pissing on the memory of people that fought for the Confederacy.

Patrick Cleburne is why I want to punch Roland Martin in the face. Patrick was an Irish Major General in the Confederate Army that lobbied to free the slaves to help win the war for the Confederacy.

I guess we shouldn't honor the founding fathers since they owned slaves and fought for the right to own slaves, and many other rights, without British oversight....

I just love how everyone thinks that the North loved blacks, and hated slavery...dumb.
