Reality vs. Lincoln, Slavery, and Civil War
The mainstream narrative about Abraham Lincoln is almost entirely myth. Lincoln is portrayed as all good and as one of the greatest men who ever lived. However, the reality is very different from the mainstream narrative.
Let’s first look at the handful of positive things we can say about Lincoln:
- Lincoln did not execute the Confederate generals or punish its soldiers as was customary in most warfare until that point. He even let them keep their guns!
- I think that Lincoln believed the following, “Slavery is wrong because no man has a right to the fruits of another man’s labor, which is one of America’s founding principles.”
- He was a world class writer, debater, and speaker.
In spite of the few positive things we can say about Lincoln, the facts prove that Lincoln was a reckless racist fascist democidal psychopath. For example, Lincoln:
- Committed genocide against Native Americans.
- Imprisoned the elected legislature of Maryland.
- Enthusiastically proclaimed in the Lincoln v. Douglass debates that he believed that blacks were inferior, should have lower social status, and should not marry whites.
- Did not mobilize for war as the South was mobilizing even though he intended to go to war, thus exposing his government to easy capture if the Confederacy had been so inclined.
- Started the Civil War, which killed 750,000 Americans – more than all other wars combined.
- Started the Civil war only to prevent secession (not to end slavery), and yet secession is a right (that’s how America had been formed); whereas, slavery was an atrocity.
- Started the war against the advice of his entire cabinet.
- Told his generals to sacrifice two Union soldiers to achieve each Confederate casualty if necessary to win the war.
- Was happy with the incompetent drunkard Ulysses S. Grant because Grant was willing to sacrifice three union soldiers to achieve each Confederate casualty.
- Attacked civilian populations.
- Declared, several years into the war, in his Emancipation Proclamation, that slaves in the Confederacy were free but that slaves in the 4 slave states in the Union were still not free. In other words, it was an utterly powerless, meaningless, hypocritical, racist, and ineffective proclamation.
Although governments, and especially US administrations, have a long history of perpetrating false flags, I have not verified the claims that the Union itself fired on Fort Sumter to get the war started. However, even if the South fired first, it is self-evident that the Union, under Lincoln’s orders, started the Civil War because placing one’s troops in a foreign country is an act of war.
For months after the Confederacy had seceded, it kept asking Lincoln to get his army out of Confederate territory and told Lincoln that if he sent more troops into Confederate territory, then they would be fired upon. Now, Lincoln knew the Confederacy was mobilized for war and was not bluffing, and he knew that Washington DC was undefended because he had been negligent, but he still sent troops to Fort Sumter, and thus it is self-evident that Lincoln started the Civil War.
When evaluating American history in relation to slavery and the Civil War, it is important to note several additional facts:
- Democrats were the pro-slavery party. Lincoln was a Republican and was more comfortable with slavery than were other Republicans, and thus Republicans have always said that no man has a right to the fruits of another man’s labor, and Democrats have always been willing to promise the fruits of other men’s labor to whoever would vote for them.
- All of the most politically correct leaders would have been willing and eager to own slaves (it’s in their genes): Clinton, Kennedy, FDR, Obama, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Al Gore, George Soros, Oprah, Golda Meir, Che Guevara, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, etc.; whereas, America’s founders were all very uncomfortable owning slaves. (To be fair, I suspect MLK might have have been uncomfortable owning slaves.)
- Free blacks owned slaves.
- Slavery was rampant in Africa (by Africans) before America, and it still exists in Africa today.
- It is looking as if black families were more intact under slavery than they are now because government dependency is an atrocity; it is the new plantation; and it is unconstitutional.
- Slaves in America revolted far less than in any other country because they were treated better (because the owners were on site).
- European countries ended slavery only because it became impractical because of slave revolts (because the owners were off-continent).
- Slavery was ending anyway because of the advent of farm machinery, such as the cotton gin.
- Southern states were being oppressed and exploited by northern states before the Civil War, continued to be exploited after the war, and continue to be oppressed and exploited to this day.
- Slavery was not one of America’s founding principles. Slavery contradicted America’s founding principles, and everyone knew it.
- Frederick Douglass bashed the Constitution … until he read it. Then, he praised the Constitution as the best hope for blacks.
- Black people in America today are much better off than black people in Africa, and thus have benefitted more than anyone from the enslavement of their ancestors.
