Dispelling the myth, so you might see the truth!

Most don`t know the historical Abe Lincoln as well as they think and I submit that most Blacks–who spout this myth about “Lincoln didn’t free the Slaves because he thought it was wrong, he did it to weaken the south’s industry & bring them back to the union”— are mendacious, or uninformed in the least.

Abe Lincoln made open commentary about his hatred of Slavery at least twenty years before he became president!

Check out some excerpts of his major speeches on Slavery …

Speech at Chicago, Illinois
July 10, 1858

I have always hated slavery, I think as much as any Abolitionist. I have been an Old Line Whig. I have always hated it, but I have always been quiet about it until this new era of the introduction of the Nebraska Bill began. I always believed that everybody was against it, and that it was in course of ultimate extinction.”

Definition of Democracy
August 1, 1858?

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy.

This rant came out of a response to a knucklehead’s comments in the Blackplanet political forum–where I lurk and destroy–where he sanctioned race baiting by Democrats as viable to drive Blacks to the polls!

Using racial hatred and dredging up the worst fears of lynching–by the KKK as a reason to vote for the Democrats of today–is despicable. Anyone promoting this kind of Race-Pimp Politics should be ridiculed by everyone, including Blacks.

I will never condone this type of racially charged campaigning by the people who lynched my people–aka Democrats. I am grateful that I have a long memory and I remember which party refused my people civil rights, until we would not be denied. n The Democrats got on board begrudgingly and away we went!

That is what this ad is promoting! The people who assaulted our people with water hoses are now asking us to vote for them —under the guise of Johnson’s unsuccessful Raw Deal incentives. They want to grease our palms with tickets, instead of promoting the conditions for us to pursue our own opportunities.

Thank you, God that Abe Lincoln not only had hatred for Slavery in his heart but had the strength of character to do what was just. Can you imagine what kind of man he must have been to sign that document–the emancipation proclamation–in his day? Kerry can’t even decide if he voted for or against the War on Islamic Terrorism!

(hat tip: some Blackplanet knucklehead)

PS..This is the article that provokes this rant–can you believe a Black man supported this tactic to get Blacks to vote? He’s an imbecile!

    i see what youre saying, but didnt the emancipation proclamation only free slaves in southern states, over which he had no real legal power since they had by then formally seceded? i could be wrong. id like to look into the matter more.

    Thank you for commenting, Tim.

    The emancipation proclamation was a guiding policy of the Lincoln administration, which lead to the 13th admendment(abolishment of slavery throughtout America).

    But my main point remains: what allowed Lincoln to take these bold acts is, he believes in the equality of man.

    The Democratic party does not.
