The Real Abe Lincoln: What They Won’t Teach You in School!

7 posts in this topic

We were taught in school that Abraham Lincoln was a great guy, a sensitive patriot and sort of a savior that freed the black man from the shackles of slavery.

But history records a different Lincoln than we’re accustomed to hearing about.  One who racked up for himself a multitude of unconstitutional, freedom-stripping acts.  But you won’t hear this side of the famous historical figure, who graces a copy of every five dollar bill, taught in the propaganda machine known as the Public School system.

This man, who some call a “tyrant” is credited with, among other things: launching an invasion without the consent of Congress, blockading Southern ports before formally declaring war, unilaterally suspending the writ of habeas corpus, arresting and imprisoning thousands of Northern citizens without a warrant, censoring telegraph communications, promoting racist views, confiscating private property, including firearms, effectively gutting the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, robbing, raping and burning the homes of undefended Southern civilians, not just men and women, but as Sherman would freely admit in his memoirs, children as well.

Even worshipful Lincoln biographers and historians called him a “dictator.”  In his book,Constitutional Dictatorship, Clinton Rossiter devoted an entire chapter to Lincoln and calls him a “great dictator.”  “Lincoln’s amazing disregard for the . . . Constitution was considered by nobody as legal,”

Abraham Lincoln, named the great emancipator and champion of the constitution by government school textbooks, was more concerned with exercising federal control over sovereign states, than he was in freeing the negro from the shackles of slavery.  He himself made this clear in no uncertain terms.

On March 4th 1861 Lincoln clarified his position on slavery in his first inaugural address on the East Portico of the Capital building: 

“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

While America’s children continue to be brainwashed into believing that Lincoln was the savior of the black man, the Congressman from Illinois tells a different tale in his Fourth debate with Stephen Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, 1858):

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about, in any way, the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior.  And I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”Abraham Lincoln
(1809-1865) 16th US President

Its not well taught, but is fairly widely known in 'adult' circles that the civil war was economic. Slavery was tacked on to make it more palatable to the unwashed masses.

I;ve never seen this about Lincoln before, but it not surprising. Bringing slavery into the mix concerning the civil war was a brilliant way to destabilize the south from within.

Too bad we ever fell for slavery in the first place. Would have been interesting to see where this nation was today without the polarizing white vs black racism issue constantly cropping up.

Which reason?

Violating the Constitution?

Suspending the Writ of Habeas Corpus?

Or, being a white supremacist?

I still like Lincoln. He was a long legged mack daddy like Obama.

Guys we should demand that this guy be taken off the penny and $5 bill in the us based upon this info and probably more. What can we do to make this happen? I mean we all know that most things we are told are fake, but they are basically flaunting it in front of everyone while at the same time probably laughing their azz off.

Lincoln freed the black slaves because he was half black, he freed his own people. After the 14th Amendment passed, all native born Americans were made American citizens except the Native Indian, who remained a ward of the state, and a non human being until 1924.
