And therefore Romney is president and Sarah Palin is Empress of Alaska etc. etc.

Small-"d" democrat, maybe...

Why even put a party identification on there in the first place?
 
2013-11-04 10:17:23 AM
Yeah, sorry, we forgot to tell you guys that we changed the history books. We'll be emailing out a flyer later today. We traded Kennedy for Lincoln.

It actually refers to Abraham Schlomo Lincoln IV, a retired tailor who used to work the booths on Election Day. He WAS a Democrat, as it turns out.
 
2013-11-04 10:20:02 AM
Really should list him as National Union...

Fox News is unimpressed.

While the stupidity must be strong with the individual who let this one fly, equally stupid will be the denizons of Mongoloid-Americans who will come in here and take copious sh*ts on this thread defending Lincoln as a stalwart of their party when he couldn't be farther from the derpitudes of insanity that currently infect the GOP.

If Lincoln were alive today, today's republicans would want him shot.

I thought Lincoln was a tyrant who fought a war of aggression against the South who were only defending their right to property and state sovereignty?

He was that, too. It's called "doublethink".

Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond were well-known Democrats.  That's how you know that Democrats are the Real Racists.

Lincoln threw people in jail without trial, or even evidence.(during the war)  I can't say I approve of that then anymore than I did when Bush did it.

This guy from the comments:

Let the libs have him. Lincoln jump started the decline in constitutional adherence. He destroyed states' rights. After all it was the states that created the fed not vice versa. Slavery should have been abolished within the framework of the constitution.

This guy has studied it out so hard he's seen the farking matrix.

THIS. GUY.!.

I was talking to a guy in my office the other day who said he didn't know Lincoln was a Republican until he watched the recent "Lincoln" movie directed by Steven Spielberg.  Kind of blew my mind.

What party Lincoln would have been in is a) irrelevant and b) complicated.  The political issues of the mid-19th century don't really cross over to the 21st century.  Lincoln would have supported a lot of things that the Republicans support, and a lot of things that the Democrats support.

He certainly wouldn't have been an extreme conservative or an extreme liberal.

On a past segment from 60 Minutes David McCullough told about a grad student who came up to him after a lecture and told him until his lecture she never realized there were thirteen original colonies.

Well to be fair, Illinois is pretty far from his hometown in Pennsylvania.    They should be given a little slack for missing one tiny detail.

No, no, sillies, the word "Democrat" is in the vocative case - the plaque is addressed to any Democrat that happens to read it.

The difference is there was a declared war during Lincoln's presidency.

Now, now. It's not nice to pick on Ron Paul supporters like that. They can't help the fact that they're autistic.

Twelve, actually. I've always found South Carolina fairly derivative.

What popular will? Weren't Southerners (not counting their "3/5th property" vote) only around 1/5 of the US population at the time of the Civil War?

Depends on the argument being made by the Grand Ole Potato.  If they are trying to appeal to moderates, Lincoln was a Republican and the best one ever at that (sorry Ray-gun).  If they are trying to appeal to Derp-Americans, Lincoln was the biggest tyrant something something what you said that every somethinged.

No he is right. Abraham Lincoln, William Tecumseh Sherman, Ulyss. S Grant founded the third United States. They are the founding fathers we should be looking too, not Jefferson, Washington, and Adams. They were for a strong federal government, weak states, and the rule of equality. Those are my founding fathers and they should be yours too.

They had a solid voting majority in favor of succession within their proposed territory.

Certainly there were plenty of slaves within same who were non voters, but Lincoln is repeatedly on record as having been willing to keep slavery around and deeply opposed to equality so it doesn't seem relevant.

Yeah, but they were voting on an issue that would have direct effects beyond their own borders and onto other states as well. Not an issue that only a majority within their own proposed territory should have a say in.
 
2013-11-04 10:51:32 AM
I'm going out on a limb and say that plaque has probably been there since the institute opened in 1966, And because in 1966 Republicans weren't the party they would become just yet.  That they meant democrat vs dictator instead of Democrat vs Republican.
That this is all a storm in a teacup where Conservatives will feel good about making a lot of noise and heat about nothing.

But hey, I could be wrong. It could be new and stupid.
