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!​

If the Constitution established the United States as a decentralized federation, unfortunately federal aggrandizement of power in the long run prevailed. In an incisive essay, Thomas DiLorenzo explores the steps by which the old order was upset.

As he makes clear, from the beginning of our national history, Alexander Hamilton, whom Cecelia Kenyon aptly termed the “Rousseau of the Right” p. 72, and his followers, dissatisfied with the decentralized government of the Constitution, endeavored to substitute for it a regime of centralized power. In this endeavor, Hamilton had the very considerable help of Chief Justice John Marshall, whose nationalist opinions often echoed Hamilton’s words. Marshall also repeated Hamilton’s bogus theory of the American founding, claiming that the “nation” somehow created the states. He amazingly argued that the federal government was somehow created by “the whole people.”…

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

All of the men in Lincoln’s cabinet were Knights [of the Golden Circle], save for Lincoln.

And it is all complete nonsense. “Honoring” paid killers for the state for participating in non-defensive, unjust wars only serves to make it more likely that there will be even more unjust wars in the future.
