Lincoln Was a Democrat? Seriously?!

trigger warning

Looking back at the Daily Kos (a far left hate site that substitutes the basest of emotions for any semblance of intellect)…

I found this oldie, but goodie:

Abe Lincoln Is A Democrat, According To A Plaque On NIU’s Campus That Actually Isn’t Wrong

lincoln plaque

There’s a plaque on the campus of Northeastern Illinois University that refers to Abraham Lincoln as a Democrat.

Recently, a few websites noticed a plaque on the Frank Lloyd Wright Building, which houses Northeastern’s Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies, that reads “This building is dedicated to public service honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln – Democrat.”

One could argue about how Honest Abe would more likely be in the Democratic party today, rather than the GOP. But that’s only speculative, and the fact is Lincoln was the first Republican president of the United States.

But NIU isn’t actually saying Lincoln belonged to the Democratic party.

The university explains that it’s not meant to refer to any political affiliation:

The Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies at Northeastern Illinois University is housed in a building that bears historical significance. From time to time, the integrity of a plaque honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln is questioned. Installed in the building for its opening in 1905, the plaque includes an inscription of the word “democrat” following Abraham Lincoln’s name. According to building archives, the word democrat was used because Lincoln was an advocate for democracy—the political or social equality of all people. The word was not chosen to reflect a political affiliation. 

Unfortunately, that explanation probably won’t stop these people from freaking out on Twitter:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/06/abe-lincoln-democrat-plaque_n_4228689.html

From there, the imbecilic writer goes on to try to portray people with good sense and a knowledge of history in a negative light, for “…freaking out…” over President Abraham Lincoln – the FIRST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT – being ludicrously compared to democrats (you know; the scumbags that murdered him).

According to building archives, the word democrat was used because Lincoln was an advocate for democracy—the political or social equality of all people. The word was not chosen to reflect a political affiliation. 

Leftists are the revisionist historians of the world, and their word is never to be trusted.  This is why I advocate the destruction of teachers unions, breaking down of the public school system, restoration of parental guidance and input in curricula, and, building up charter schools, making private schooling more affordable, keeping people that advocate destructive ideologies out of positions where they can influence children (leftists, socialists, left-wing activists, etc.).  Leftists have an inability to face reality, and so, to deal with this, they lie.

Can’t deal with the fact that the DNC is the party of slavery, abduction, torture, racism, institutional racism, etc.  Then lie about it by saying they were really Republicans, and that the parties had a mythological “switch”, some indeterminate time ago.

No, PRESIDENT Lincoln was not an advocate of “…democracy…”, he was an advocate of republicanism.

Republicanism is the political value system that has dominated American political thought since the American Revolution. It stresses liberty and rights as central values, makes the people as a whole sovereign, rejects aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent and calls on them to perform civic duties, and is strongly opposed to corruption. The American version of republicanism was formed by the Founding Fathers in the 18th century and was based on English models as well as Roman and European ideas. It formed the basis for the fighting the British in 1775, the declaring independence(1776) and creating a powerful written Constitution (1787); it appears in highly influential statements from Abraham Lincoln and others.

Republicanism is not the same as democracy, for republicanism asserts that people have inalienable rights that cannot be voted away by a majority of voters. In a true democracy, the voters have no limits. Republicanism and democracy are two political philosophies (along with classical liberalism) that have dominated all American politics. Indeed the terms are enshrined in the names of the two major parties, but both parties in practice combine both republicanism and democracy.

The republican ideal of civic duty was succinctly expressed in 1961 by the Democrat John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

This is democracy:

Democracy means the people rule and can do anything they want by majority rule.[1] In the U.S. “super majorities” (over 50%) are required for many decisions, such as ratifying a treaty or passing a constitutional amendment. Republicanism means there is a system of rule of law, or inalienable rights, which no majority can vote out.

No, Abraham Lincoln was not advocating lawless mob rule.  That’s what democrats/liberals do.  Lincoln stood in opposition to democrats.  What were democrats advocating?  Let’s take a look.  Pay special attention to point 7:

Democratic Party Platform of 1840
May 6, 1840

dnc head up ass

1. Resolved, That the federal government is one of limited powers, derived solely from the constitution, and the grants of power shown therein, ought to be strictly construed by all the departments and agents of the government, and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers.

2. Resolved, That the constitution does not confer upon the general government the power to commence and carry on, a general system of internal improvements.

3. Resolved, That the constitution does not confer authority upon the federal government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the several states, contracted for local internal improvements, or other state purposes; nor would such assumption be just or expedient.

4. Resolved, That justice and sound policy forbid the federal government to foster one branch of industry to the detriment of another, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common country—that every citizen and every section of the country, has a right to demand and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to complete and ample protection of person and property from domestic violence, or foreign aggression.

5. Resolved, That it is the duty of every branch of the government, to enforce and practice the most rigid economy, in conducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised, than is required to defray the necessary expenses of the government.

6. Resolved, That congress has no power to charter a national bank; that we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the best interests of the country, dangerous to our republican institutions and the liberties of the people, and calculated to place the business of the country within the control of a concentrated money power, and above the laws and the will of the people.

7. Resolved, That congress has no power, under the constitution, to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several states, and that such states are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the constitution; that all efforts by abolitionists or others, made to induce congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people, and endanger the stability and permanency of the union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend to our political institutions.

8. Resolved, That the separation of the moneys of the government from banking institutions, is indispensable for the safety of the funds of the government, and the rights of the people.

9. Resolved, That the liberal principles embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, and sanctioned in the constitution, which makes ours the land of liberty, and the asylum of the oppressed of every nation, have ever been cardinal principles in the democratic faith; and every attempt to abridge the present privilege of becoming citizens, and the owners of soil among us, ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the alien and sedition laws from our statute-book.

Yep.

Now let’s take a look at the earliest GOP party planks that I could find:

Republican Party Platform of 1856
June 18, 1856

gop symbol

This Convention of Delegates, assembled in pursuance of a call addressed to the people of the United States, without regard to past political differences or divisions, who are opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise; to the policy of the present Administration; to the extension of Slavery into Free Territory; in favor of the admission of Kansas as a Free State; of restoring the action of the Federal Government to the principles of Washington and Jefferson; and for the purpose of presenting candidates for the offices of President and Vice-President, do

Resolved: That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in the Declaration of Independence, and embodied in the Federal Constitution are essential to the preservation of our Republican institutions, and that the Federal Constitution, the rights of the States, and the union of the States, must and shall be preserved.

Resolved: That, with our Republican fathers, we hold it to be a self-evident truth, that all men are endowed with the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and that the primary object and ulterior design of our Federal Government were to secure these rights to all persons under its exclusive jurisdiction; that, as our Republican fathers, when they had abolished Slavery in all our National Territory, ordained that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, it becomes our duty to maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts to violate it for the purpose of establishing Slavery in the Territories of the United States by positive legislation, prohibiting its existence or extension therein. That we deny the authority of Congress, of a Territorial Legislation, of any individual, or association of individuals, to give legal existence to Slavery in any Territory of the United States, while the present Constitution shall be maintained.

Resolved: That the Constitution confers upon Congress sovereign powers over the Territories of the United States for their government; and that in the exercise of this power, it is both the right and the imperative duty of Congress to prohibit in the Territories those twin relics of barbarism–Polygamy, and Slavery.

Resolved: That while the Constitution of the United States was ordained and established by the people, in order to “form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty,” and contain ample provision for the protection of the life, liberty, and property of every citizen, the dearest Constitutional rights of the people of Kansas have been fraudulently and violently taken from them.

Their Territory has been invaded by an armed force;

Spurious and pretended legislative, judicial, and executive officers have been set over them, by whose usurped authority, sustained by the military power of the government, tyrannical and unconstitutional laws have been enacted and enforced;

The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been infringed.

Test oaths of an extraordinary and entangling nature have been imposed as a condition of exercising the right of suffrage and holding office.

The right of an accused person to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury has been denied;

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, has been violated;

They have been deprived of life, liberty, and property without due process of law;

That the freedom of speech and of the press has been abridged;

The right to choose their representatives has been made of no effect;

Murders, robberies, and arsons have been instigated and encouraged, and the offenders have been allowed to go unpunished;

That all these things have been done with the knowledge, sanction, and procurement of the present National Administration; and that for this high crime against the Constitution, the Union, and humanity, we arraign that Administration, the President, his advisers, agents, supporters, apologists, and accessories, either before or after the fact, before the country and before the world; and that it is our fixed purpose to bring the actual perpetrators of these atrocious outrages and their accomplices to a sure and condign punishment thereafter.

Resolved, That Kansas should be immediately admitted as a state of this Union, with her present Free Constitution, as at once the most effectual way of securing to her citizens the enjoyment of the rights and privileges to which they are entitled, and of ending the civil strife now raging in her territory.

Resolved, That the highwayman’s plea, that “might makes right,” embodied in the Ostend Circular, was in every respect unworthy of American diplomacy, and would bring shame and dishonor upon any Government or people that gave it their sanction.

Resolved, That a railroad to the Pacific Ocean by the most central and practicable route is imperatively demanded by the interests of the whole country, and that the Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient aid in its construction, and as an auxiliary thereto, to the immediate construction of an emigrant road on the line of the railroad.

Resolved, That appropriations by Congress for the improvement of rivers and harbors, of a national character, required for the accommodation and security of our existing commerce, are authorized by the Constitution, and justified by the obligation of the Government to protect the lives and property of its citizens.

Resolved, That we invite the affiliation and cooperation of the men of all parties, however differing from us in other respects, in support of the principles herein declared; and believing that the spirit of our institutions as well as the Constitution of our country, guarantees liberty of conscience and equality of rights among citizens, we oppose all legislation impairing their security.

THIS is what Abraham Lincoln championed.  This is what the GOP was made for.  Saying that Lincoln shared ideology with the democrats is disgusting, and, considering this is from the Daily Kos, not surprising, considering what disgusting scum made the site, and what disgusting, left wing, racist scum frequent it.

The GOP has changed, over the years, becoming more like the DNC in the fact of their increasing political corruption.  This is an existential threat, and was great enough to push me out of the party, and into the Conservative Party (http://home.conservativepartyusa.org/).

The DNC?

Still the same.

democratic-party-campaign-poster

They’ve been a white supremacist movement, thinly disguised under the paper-thin veneer of being a “political party”, since it’s inception (as you can see from it’s own party planks).

Neo-Confederates like to try to pretend the Democrats (Confederates) started the American Civil War over states’ rights, but only idiots think that.  There was no states’ right to enslave, rape, murder, etc.  Keep saying that, and you just make yourselves look like bigger buffoons.

Some call it the “war of aggression”.  I guess beating and torturing people, based on the color of their skin, wasn’t aggressive enough for them.  The DNC has not changed.

Democratic Party Platform of 1876
June 22, 1876

Reform is necessary to correct the omissions of a Republican Congress and the errors of our treaties and our diplomacy, which has stripped our fellow-citizens of foreign birth and kindred race, re-erasing [re-crossing] the Atlantic from the shield of American citizenship, and has exposed our brethren of the Pacific coast to the incursions of a race not sprung from the same great parent stock, and in fact now by law denied citizenship through naturalization as being unaccustomed to the traditions of a progressive civilization, one exercised in liberty under equal laws; and we denounce the policy which thus discards the liberty-loving German and tolerates the revival of the coolie-trade in Mongolian women for immoral purposes, and Mongolian men held to perform servile labor contracts, and demand such modification of the treaty with the Chinese Empire, or such legislation within constitutional limitations, as shall prevent further importation or immigration of the Mongolian race.

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=29581

Democratic Party Platform of 1880
June 22, 1880

11. Amendment of the Burlingame Treaty. No more Chinese immigration, except for travel, education, and foreign commerce, and that even carefully guarded.

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=29582

The Democrats were responsible for many things, leading up to the present day:

Dred Scott Decision

http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/speech-on-the-dred-scott-decision/

The Fugitive Slave Act

  • In 1850, Democrats in Congress passed the “Fugitive Slave Law”.  That law required Northerners to return escaped slaves back into slavery or else pay huge fines.

  • Because the “Fugitive Slave Law” allowed Free Blacks to be carried into slavery, this law was disastrous for blacks in the North; and as a consequence of the atrocious provisions of this Democratic law, some 20,000 blacks in the North left the United States and fled to Canada.
  • The “Underground Railroad” reached the height of its activity during this period, helping thousands of slaves escape from slavery in the South all the way out of the United States and into Canada – simply to escape the reach of the Democrats’ Fugitive Slave Law.

The Formation of the Ku Klux Klan

http://www.conservapedia.com/Ku_Klux_Klan

It should be  noted that Politifact (http://www.politifact.com/virginia/statements/2013/jun/10/stephen-martin/state-sen-stephen-martin-says-democratic-party-cre/) likes to claim that this is not true, and Republican are lying about this, it should be noted that Politifact is, in fact, the liar.

The first KKK was an movement of white Southerners who opposed Reconstruction. It was founded in 1866 by members of the Democrat Party to inflicting violence against black leaders and white Republicans.[1] One of the founders, and the first “Grand Wizard,” was former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. The Klan was broken up by President Ulysses S. Grant and the U.S. Army using the Civil Rights Act of 1871 (also known as the Ku Klux Klan Act). It had disappeared by 1872, although similar violent groups persisted in some localities around the South.

http://www.conservapedia.com/Ku_Klux_Klan

Let’s break that down, so even a publicly schooled liberal can understand that:

One of the founders, and the first “Grand Wizard,” was former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Confederates weren’t Republicans.  The DNC existed before the GOP, and the DNC controlled states were the ones that traitorously, unconstitutionally and illegally seceded from the Union.  That means the Confederate States/Confederates (http://www.conservapedia.com/Confederate_States_of_America) were DEMOCRATS.

Jim Crow

http://www.conservapedia.com/Jim_Crow

The Black Codes

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Codes_(United_States)

And so on.  YOU DEMOCRATS (I’m sure some of you are reading this, and fuming with anger) elected presidents and stacked the Supreme Court with members of your political party’s clandestine paramilitary terrorist wing, the Ku Klux Klan.  YOU DEMOCRATS elected members of the Ku Klux Klan to Congress.

YOU DEMOCRATS opposed civil rights legislation.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/04/10/whos-really-responsible-for-the-civil-rights-act/

YOU DEMOCRATS tried deporting all former slaves, and preventing them from becoming citizens, prompting the GOP to create the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv

And it is YOU DEMOCRAT scum that pioneered gun control and the violation of the 2nd Amendment, in order to pursue your racist socio-political agenda, and to disarm Blacks!

https://www.firearmsandliberty.com/cramer.racism.html

And you racist scum STILL are pushing it, for the SAME REASONS!

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/feb/8/sughed-michael-bloomberg-suggests-disarming-minori/

I could go on and on.  If you democrats/liberals (REDUNDANCY!) had half as much energy used for spreading lies put to use defending the country, we’d be a lot better off, today, in the world.

I am VIRUS-X, REPUBLIC COMMANDO, and I approve this message.
