Comrade Abraham: Was President Lincoln a Closet Marxist? | Nomadic Politics

October 22, 2014 1 comment

When we think of Lincoln, most of us do not consider the sixteenth president as a Marxist revolutionary.

Yet, a little research uncovers some very interesting- slightly confounding- connections between Abe Lincoln and the father of the Communist movement. As fascinating as that might be, there is an even bigger shock in store when it comes to the origins of the Republican Party.

This quote in the meme above reportedly came early in his political career December 1847. For some of us who grew up thinking of “Honest Abe” as a folksy backwoods lawyer, it’s a bit jarring to hear him talking about labor issues. It’s not the image many of us have of the man who freed the slaves and held the nation together.

It’s hard enough to think of him as a Republican.But there was more to that quote. Lincoln also wrote in that same passage: These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people..MORE!​

This is one of those nagging little questions the “history” books will never bother to answer, not even address, if their authors can avoid it.

Fully 95% of the information dealing with the “Forty-eightersocialists involvement in the Union army and the early Republican Party has been carefully swept into a nice, neat little pile and quietly dumped down the memory hole…………

And yet… in spite of the fact that Barack Obama has already called the Ebola outbreak a “national security priority” … and in spite of the fact that he has the statutory and legal authority to do so… Barack Obama is REFUSING to ENFORCE THE LAW by implementing reasonable travel bans and visa and entry restrictions on people coming into the United States from Ebola infected countries.

The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forresth

Though Nathan Bedford Forrest was not a writer, had little formal education, never authored a book, and was not a professional speaker, he did leave us with a number of witty comments, profound words, and sublime statements. Award-winning author, Southern historian, and Forrest scholar Lochlainn Seabrook has gathered together some of the more memorable and impressive of these and forged them into a small but fascinating work:

Gunny G: Civil War massacre launched reparations debate….. “On a rainy night in early 1865, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton arrived in Savannah, Ga. — which the Union had captured weeks earlier — with a question: What should become of newly free black people? It was a question that many in power had been asking for some time. What was different this time was to whom the question was posed: the newly free black people themselves. It was a visit born of a massacre about a month before, and it launched a debate that continues to this day…………..”

On a rainy night in early 1865, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton arrived in Savannah, Ga. — which the Union had captured weeks earlier — with a question:

It was a question that many in power had been asking for some time.

What was different this time was to whom the question was posed: the newly free black people themselves.

It was a visit born of a massacre about a month before, and it launched a debate that continues to this day…………..

John Gibson:

Obama – How Did the ‘Smartest Guy in the Room’ Become the Dumbest?

Fox Nation ^ | September 5, 2014 | John Gibson Fox News RadioPosted on 9/6/2014, 4:01:32 PM by Kaslin

The last few days have proved to be a crashing reality for the idol worshipers who have left a trail of drool as they have followed Barack Obama since he announced he was the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln and offered his brilliance for the world’s top job.

He announced that he was smarter than his intelligence advisers, no matter what their speciality might be. Politics? Yes, I’m smarter he told us. National Security?

Ditto.

By Thomas DiLorenzoAugust 9, 2014Email PrintFacebookTwitterShareThe tall tales told by the Lincoln cult get funnier and funnier as more and more Americans learn the truth about their own history as opposed to the version fed to them by the Lincoln cult.

This time the source of their knee-slapping whoppers is a hilarious attempt to cover up the fact that their hero apparently read and studied a white supremacist screed.A recent article that appeared in the Huffington Post, FOX news online, the Daily Mail, and elsewhere described how Lincoln’s handwriting had been

verified by handwriting experts in an 1854 book entitled Types of Mankind. According to these news articles, the book argued that the different races developed at different times, and were therefore not susceptible to co-existing or amalgamation. “The book was used by nineteenth-century white supremacists!,” screamed the articles.
