Americans deify their presidents almost as fully as North Koreans. The most sacred of all presidents, he who you must not criticize because he is single-handedly responsible for ending slavery worldwide and saving the life of every black person ever to exist, is Abraham Lincoln. Or so American-colored history tells us. In the non-patriotarded version of history, Abe was the first American tyrant. Reading history books used every day around the country in elementary schools, we find the following myths that are patently false:
Myth #1: Lincoln invaded the South to free the slaves.
Myth #2: Lincoln’s war saved the Union.
Myth #3: Lincoln championed equality and natural rights.
Myth #4: Lincoln was a defender of the Constitution.
Myth #5: Lincoln was a “great humanitarian” who had “malice toward none.”
Myth #6: War was necessary to end slavery.
Read a short column debunking these views here. Let me just throw in a quote from the man, so we are clear here.
I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say, in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And in as much as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.
Have you ever thought about the oddity that is the Lincoln Memorial? It resembles a temple to Zeus or a god even greater than that. Move along, though. It’s normal.
Here are some other presidents everyone thinks should be kinged. No FDR image in included, because most patriots think he is the one true God and accordingly are unable to draw him.
