Abe Lincoln the Tyrant

In response to Robert who wrote a comment on my last post, I had to reprint my response:

I appreciate your comment Robert. You gotta take a second look into the war between the states to really get my point. Never do I endorse nor support slavery in any way. But simple and plain... Abe Lincoln did not wage the war to free the slaves nor did Able care for their well-being or equal rights (he wanted to deport them back to Africa!) The war was about taxes (money). There is ample evidence that supports this. If you believe that the "Civil War" was about slavery than you must also believe that the Iraq war was about WMDs.

My point is that a so-called Catholic high school is putting a war-monger up on a pedestal as a model for proper conduct. It makes no sense because Jesus Christ was obviously anti-war (and anti-state for that matter).

During the 1860's there were many abolitionists (those who were working towards abolishing slavery) who were also anti-war, especially Lincoln's war of aggression. Read up on Lysander Spooner as a great example.

The brutality and viciousness of that war, then using the slaves as a scapegoat towards the end is what lead to the creation of the Klu Klux Klan by disgruntled and defeated Democrats. (For every action you get an equal and opposite reaction.)

Why do you think Dr. King's non-violent civil rights movement was so successful? The 1960's did more for equal rights than Lincoln's so called emancipation ever could. Lincoln used war, terror, homicide and humiliation to achieve his goals. Dr. King used love, peace, brotherhood, community-bonds and civilized discourse to help free those who were oppressed. (Peaceful action eventually reaps a peaceful reaction, like Obama being elected, makes sense?) The motivations and the results from both campaigns are like night and day.

We will eventually stop worshiping President Lincoln when we all realize the truth about this Republican, homicidal tyrant who disregarded the constitution and human life as well.

Old Abe was a lot like Old Clinton in the fact that he sent in American troops to kill Americans on American soil (aka WACO, Ruby Ridge, etc.) Why would anyone deify Abe Lincoln? I wouldn't wipe my cow crap covered boots on him or his memorial.
