Now Abraham Lincoln Was a Racist

Some of the giants of history who personify our heritage will be erased, like Robert E. Lee. Others will be branded as thought criminals, as social justice warriors have tried to do to Lee’s opponent, Abraham Lincoln:

The University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor has shot down a student government request that a plaque be placed near an on-campus statue of Abraham Lincoln describing what they see as the president’s culpability in massacres of Native Americans.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank said she was not open to making the Associated Students of Madison’s desired change to the statute that has sat at the heart of the campus for over a century, student paper the Daily Cardinal reported.

Lincoln’s crime is that he commuted the death sentences of most but not all of a group of Sioux Indians who had been convicted of murder and rape.

ASM Chair Katrina Morrison said she wants UW to recognize Lincoln’s “brutality towards indigenous peoples.”

His statue will remain undesecrated for now, but today’s student government is tomorrow’s board of trustees. If trends continue, Honest Abe will be known to future generations as just another villainous white male.

On a tip from TCS III.

    “Villainous white male” is redundant!

    Today’s Circus World report – Abe Lincoln, the man who freed thousands of slaves, is a racist.

    We acknowledge people like Lincoln for doing exceptional things, not because they are without flaws! They do exceptional things in spite of their flaws, and so deserve our admiration.

    If we used Blank’s standards then, absolutely no one, nobody – zip, zero, nada – could be painted or sculpted or in any way be remembered. And no one would be worthy of a biography as well. We’re all flawed.

    Even Jesus Christ — this rebel rouser, this culture, social and religious criticizer — would be excluded according to her misplaced self-congratulating do-gooder smugness.

    And it become cliché.

    Here’s a twilight zone titled… “Libtard Time Machine”

    1.) Go back and kill Lincoln.
    2.) Pat self on back for saving the future.
    3.) New future is run by the Confederacy in USA and NAZIS in Europe!
    4.) Time machine breaks, libtard cries “WHHHYYYYYYYYYY” doomed to spend the rest of his days triggered!

    Is Ms. Morrison herself an “indigenous person?” Or just a guilt-ridden liberal?

    how massively useless do you have to be to spend your time searching for any tidbit that can be turn into trashing America?

    I can wager these butt wads are not STEM students and will never have a productive career that adds to the quality of life for the general population.

  10. ICEvictim says:

    THAT’s the point! Libtards are generally a waste of oxygen. They generate nothing but hate and strife. They do this to drag down any and all successful people as those folks make it obvious how useless these whiny little maggots really are.

    If you despise a person because of color you are racist no matter what color you are. It does go both ways even if the people in control of the narrative refuse to acknowledge it. in our politically correct times under progressive liberal media when the truth is uncomfortable we revise it or ignore it. We have changed the definition of anything that doesn’t suit the progressive liberals and they are the worst racist of all.

    By today’s standards Lincoln WAS a racist. His original solution to the race problem was repatriation to Liberia. His objection to slavery was more due to the competition it provided to poor whites rather than the bad treatment of Negros.
    He grew and changed with the fighting of the Civil War, but it needs to be remembered that his primary goal was to preserve the Union, not emancipation.

  13. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    ” We’re all flawed.”

    They don’t seem to have any problem with Che Guevara, Mao, Trotsky, etc. So I guess we don’t ALL have flaws. Or something.

    Just wait until they discover that Lincolns actions to end slavery arose not from a burning abolitionist sentiment, but rather a pragmatic policy to win the war and preserve the Union, which he saw as paramount, all other things were secondary. From a letter to Horace Greely—‘ If
    I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would
    do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves
    I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving
    others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and
    the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the
    Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not
    believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less
    whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the
    cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing
    more will help the cause.’
    Indeed Lincoln wanted to repatriate blacks back to Africa,possibly Liberia….pity he could not accomplish that–so much turmoil and cost could have been avoided.

    There’s just NOBODY righteous and holy enough to please today’s righteous and holy social-justice Pharisees.

  16. OldSailor says:

    How long will it be, I wonder, before the SJWs try to dig up the concrete block his casket is encased in (to protect his corpse from the SJWs and thieves of earlier days) in order to destroy his remains utterly?

  17. Hawk_TX says:

    Lincoln was a huge racist who wanted to kick blacks out of the country. Here are a few quotes demonstrating his racist beliefs.

    1. On the issue of the expansion of slavery Lincoln said:

    “There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races … A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation, but as an immediate separation is impossible, the next best thing is to keep them apart where they are not already together. If white and black people never get together in Kansas, they will never mix blood in Kansas …”

    2. On shipping blacks back to Africa he said:

    “In the language of Mr. Jefferson, uttered many years ago, “It is still in our power to direct the process of emancipation, and deportation, peaceably, and in such slow degrees, as that the evil will wear off insensibly; and in their places be, pari passu [on an equal basis], filled up by free white laborers.””

    3. On outlawing slavery in the south before secession. He said:

    “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.”

    4.On equality he said:

    “I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is physical difference between the two which, in my judgment, will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position.”

    5. On inter-racial marriage he said:

    “Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. Family life may also collapse and the increase of mixed breed bastards may some day challenge the supremacy of the white man.”
