Begoggle: Lincoln was a real Republican who supported states rights and heritage.


Unfortunately, James Earl Jones is a current Republican.

Wait. Is it now patriotic to celebrate Lincoln, or is he the one who according to a previous Fark thread "approved the mass hangings of 38 Dakota men in the largest mass execution in the history of the United States"?

Kind of right if you squint.  Lincoln supported a strong federal government and the Constitution.  If he was alive today, not only would he be 211 years old, he'd be a Democrat.

Good stuff, subby.  Thank you!

Y'all are the only ones who ever thought these farkers were perfect. I've always considered them deeply flawed, powerful men that are important to the history of the country.

Worthy of statues and reverence? Perhaps, to some. I however, don't care if every statue of these guys is taken down.

You couldn't have Lincoln today because of political correctness.

patriotism is just government propaganda and brainwashing

there are no current reasons we are better than anyone

Sure we could, because if Lincoln were alive today, his positions would be indistinguishable from any of our current Democratic public figures. He'd be a progressive of whatever time he lived in.

Lincoln's first and only priority was the preservation of the Union. He would be fine with slavery if it would lead to that goal. And he thought freed slaves should leave the country, as white and black could never be/living together in perfect harmony.

There are no heroes. There are no devils. There is only people.

And Zuul.

His pushing for emancipation led to the break up of the Union. Lincoln was not fine with slavery.
