Lincoln was a vehement racist and were he to say the thing he said today he would be shunned forever.

Lincoln was a homosexual.

His wife learned of his affair with his aide and shot him.

Booth was murdered so there would be no trial.

The elite knew well and good who really killed him and why. That is why his widow never got her widow's pension. She moved to Europe and shunned public life.

Lincoln's plan was to ship all former slaves to Liberia. Had his wife not murdered him he would have succeeded.

WARNING to youth looking for homework resources. THIS and thousands of other works, are trying to cause your impression of the United States, and it's historically great people who fought and died to assure you could live - to be usurped by socialists attempting to destroy your future. No matter what anyone says, this nation, and people like Abe Lincoln, did nothing but fight and die and exist to free people all around the world from what was, and is slowly becoming again, an oppressive world of tyrants.
I don't know how people can "praise" this article of yet another feeble but apparently successful attempt to rewrite the history of a great man, which in turn aids in supporting the neo-socialist-democrat party's work to destroy the nation's successful purpose of warning tyrant governments and perverse dictators everywhere that "the people" will stand up and fight against them? Clearly, at least 51 percent of this nation has been so brainwashed with the success of work like this, they even voted to re-install a man who already proved to be one such a tyrant? That’s how socialism works. It actually succeeds in making people so perverse, they’ll work to oppress themselves?
The fact this self proclaimed "resource" of history willfully, recklessly plucks out a "fragment" of a speech to spread its hatred for freedom, is astonishingly shameful but strangely, widely accepted?
Did any of you bother to read the entire letter quoted selectively in pieces to cause you to think so ignorantly?
As has ALWAYS been known,(until socialists took over re-writing our history) Lincoln was thoroughly disgusted with slavery, and knew it was an affront to the Declaration of Independence, which he regarded as the most important document ever to be written for the freedom of ALL people throughout the WORLD. Lincoln's primary objective was to "save the Union" which is uttered multiple times in the same letter. The same letter also says, "if I could save the union by freeing ALL slaves, I would."
As for the homosexual calling Lincoln a homosexual, you might decide which side you're on before you open you redundant bucket mouth.

Lincoln ranks as the worst president this nation ever had. Next worst was FDR. But that traitor is for another thread. Lincoln goaded the south into rebellion and then illegally sent troops to quell the legal succession of the states from the Union. No state would have joined the usA if anyone had thought they could not leave if it did not work out.

You cannot argue that Lincoln was not for deporting all blacks back to Africa. Liberia exists solely as a place to send former slaves. It is why it was formed. It would not be a country had Lincoln not had a hand in it.

I get sick of flag waving retards who lack the ability to research going and praising such an evil man. Lincoln was evil and nothing but evil. He is directly responsible for over 300,000 American deaths. Hitler never came close to killing that many Americans.

Read your history. Lincoln was a closet fag who was killed by his wife for fooling around on him with a man. Can you come up with another reason his wife did not get her federal widow's pension? No one else can. Why would she leave the country and not return? She left to escape justice.

Next thing you're going to say is that Johnson did not order Kennedy killed. But we all know he is the one who killed perhaps the only decent president this nation had in the 20th century.

Lincoln wanted to deport all slaves back to Africa.

Lincoln wasn't popular when he was president.

Lincoln wanted to punish the soul of slavery.And punish those who mocked him. He wanted to free Whites of the fleshly corruptions of slavery.

Biological equality doesn't exist. That's why we have equality before the law.

In Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation of Sept. 1862 he said:

"I have urged the colonization of the Negroes,(back to Africa), and I shall continue. My Emancipation Proclamation was linked with this plan (of colonization). There is no room for two distinct races of White men in America, much less for two distinct races of Whites and Blacks.... I can think of no greater calamity than the assimilation of the negro into our social and political life as our equal ... Within twenty years we can peacefully colonize the Negro ... under conditions in which he can rise to the full measure of manhood. This he can never do here. We can never attain the ideal union our fathers dreamed, with millions of an alien, inferior race among us, whose assimilation is neither possible nor desirable."

Lincoln actually proposed an amendment to the constitution that would've authorized congress to recolonize all freed Blacks back to Africa. On Aug. 15, l862, Congress did appropriate over half a million dollars for that purpose. Thousands of Negroes had been shipped back when Lincoln was shot.

SO THE FUTURE OF THE USA IS TO SEND ALL BLACKS BACK TO AFRICA. THE BLACK MAN IS TO RECLAIM HIS AFRICAN SUB-SAHARAN CONTINENT. AMERICA WILL FREE THEM.

THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR BLACKS TO ADVANCE THE WORLD IN THEIR OWN RESPECTIVE LAND. THEY ARE AN ANCIENT PEOPLE WITH THE MOST INFERIOR RESULTS OF ANY LIVING THING ON EARTH.

AMERICA HAS BEAUTIFULLY EQUIPPED AMERICAN BLACKS TO RECLAIM THEIR MOTHERLAND. THEY HAVE TO PROVE THE WORLD THAT THEY CAN LEAD THEIR PEOPLE LIKE MEN AND NOT LIKE BEASTS.

Everything Lincoln did was not so that blacks can just be the White man's beneficiary.

He abolished slavery so that we'd be cleansed of all the corruption this slavery has bestowed upon us.

I know that there are liberal powers out there who are working very hard to make sure we don't reach this paradigm too soon. Or liberal powers who stay loyal to their own perceived view of the situation by brainwashing others to view blacks as biologically equal...

...to see Lincoln as a noble negro lover that everyone loved during the times he was president.To see him as a radical liberal who smiled with ''humanity'' as the beautiful dramatic music played in the backround every time he spoke.

But he wasn't like that. Lincoln stood for freedom. But Lincoln also stood for punishment for enslavement while recognizing the inferiority of the blacks. And this is NOT shown by mainstream liberals up in Hollywood because it works AGAINST their own political agendas. And they profit from the naivete of the people to ENFORCE this view on others with extreme power when they feel the world is not embracing scientific biological egalitarianism.( CORRUPTION)

The only thing that shall exist until everyone realizes that the black man is not equal to Homo Sapiens Sapiens is equality BEFORE THE LAW.

( Realize it by studying crime statistics, studying the burden they have placed in American society, studying the rate of violence,rape,their ''gangsta'' culture, their promiscuity,their savagery, Africa today, disease etc and by experience) Equality before the law is enough for the blacks to prove that they are biological equal.( So far -- they have failed greatly)

Whites have the freedom to oppress blacks. Whites have the freedom to create a new way of thinking. And most of all, Whites,Mestizos,Asians have THE RIGHT to follow the real Lincoln's vision: TO SEND BLACKS BACK TO AFRICA.

It will take what it's gonna take but it will happen.

No army in the world can stop an idea who's time has finally come.

Somebody has been reading C. A. Tripp and accepting every word he said. There is insufficient evidence to sugggest that Lincoln was a homosexual. Granted, there is speculation. But as far as Mary Todd learning about her husband's
feeling for other men, there is not a shred of information to back that up. Besides, what does it matter if he was homosexual? He was undoubtedly our greatest president. How he presided so magisterially is utterly beyond me--especially when one considers his humble origins in Kentucky and Indiana and on into Illinois. Lincoln had to be a devoted husband to tolerate the neurosis of Mary Lincoln. She was unquestionably a shrew of the first order. So if Lincoln turned to another man for human warmth, who can possibly blame him?
But as far as his being exclusively homosexual or even bisexual, any great belief that this was the case is based on very flimsy---almost nonexistent--evidence. As I said earlier, someone has been reading C. A. Tripp and taking his words at face value. Stick to David Herbert Donald or Doris Kerns Goodwin. They have the truth of Lincoln's life.
