By and large, the American people are ignorant of history – even their own history.

As a result, they have often been manipulated to believe false accounts of famous figures.

Quite often we have been told very bad things about god God-fearing people and, conversely, we have been told many good things about some very evil people.

What I am about to reveal to you may shock you and it may make you mad – even mad at me.

I want you to listen to the following statement which you will find racist and obscene. It was said by someone who supposedly gave his life for the cause of racial equality.

“I will say…that I am not, nor ever have I been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

That was Abraham Lincoln. Yes, that’s right, the Great Emancipator. The truth is that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was specifically designed to do the opposite of its name. The Emancipation Proclamation freed no slaves.

Regrettably, the tactics of the party that Lincoln founded – the Republican Party – have not changed. Witness the Patriot Act; police state legislation whose name sounds like something that loyal Americans should embrace. However, many, including Congressman Ron Paul, have declared that it is really an act of terrorism directed at the American people by their own government. And it seems to have the full support of the party of Lincoln – the Republican Party.
