I had NO idea that Crazy Right-Wing Freeper types hate LINCOLN.... [View all]

...and no, not the movie. The president. The bearded guy who appears on our pennies and $5 bills and Mount Rushmore and stopped a little problem called the Civil War from destroying the Union and OH YEAH--essentially launched the powerful political party most of them now belong to.

Who wouldn't be proud to call Abraham Lincoln their party's first President? Well, here are some choice quotes from a typically delusional FreeRepublic thread about secession:

I think Iíll just side with Lincoln on this one.

You'd be siding with the American Caesar and original statist. Lincoln Fairly Tales are just so much reconstructed history. It sells books and movies.

Yep. You can thank Lincoln for everything from the EPA, the federal gun laws to 1.5 liter-per-flush toilets. He is the person most responsible for destroying the federalist system our country was founded on.

Some "conservatives" (poor things) still believe their public school indoctrination and think he's a great guy.

F*** Lincoln.

Sic Semper Tyrannis.

I'm with you. Lincoln's "story" is a classic example of how history can be written to be anything you want it to be. Lincoln seriously messed up a great idea (the Constitution)!

Yup. Lincoln was a tyrant, no doubt about it. One of the biggest frauds foisted on the American people was that Lincoln was the savior of the United States. The fact is, he was the singlemost influence in setting in motion the ultimate destruction of the United States as a consitutional republic. But then the victors get to write the histories, so there you have it.


Well, there you go folks. Some Freepers think Obama is ALMOST as bad a president as Abraham Lincoln. I really didn't think that site could shock me anymore, and now they've managed to do it. (And no, this isn't satire. You can check out the thread here)
