Abraham Lincoln

I have often heard that Abraham Lincoln mentioned the Corwin Amendment (the original 13th amendment) in his first inaugural address. I finally have gotten around to fact-checking this and have discovered that he did indeed:

"I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution—which amendment, however, I have not seen—has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service. To avoid misconstruction of what I have said, I depart from my purpose not to speak of particular amendments so far as to say that, holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable."

The Great Emancipator? Had no objection to an amendment to the Constitution that made slavery permanent? With no hope of abolition? Hmmm. It's amazing what you can find out if you go to primary sources, isn't it? Hear the man in his own words and not through the reconstructionist Yankee filter and you can't help but reach a different conclusion than is taught in the Yankee government schools of 2007. Unless, of course, you prefer to believe the Yankee government over the words of Abraham Lincoln himself, which, I understand, is quite plausible in the occupied reconstructed South of today.

While he undoubtedly spoke the truth when referring to his desire to make slavery permanent, America's Hitler lied when he spoke these words:

"In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow-countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of civil war. The Government will not assail you. You can have no conflict without being yourselves the aggressors. You have no oath registered in heaven to destroy the Government, while I shall have the most solemn one to "preserve, protect, and defend it."

The Government did indeed assail us. It burned Columbia. It burned Atlanta. It burned Richmond. We did not burn one single Yankee city. We did not rape one single Yankee woman, unlike the Yankee army that raped our black women whenever and wherever they encountered them. Lincoln also got his own oath wrong: the oath he took was to preserve, protect and defend THE CONSTITUTION not the "government." Another fact overlooked by the revisionist Yankee educators in our reconstructed South of 2007.

To anyone who complains of the "war" in Iraq: Why are you surprised? This is the Yankee army doing what it has always done. Nothing has changed. Rape, murder, burn, pillage...Yankees are barbarians and they are only doing what comes natural to them.
