In school we learned that the U.S. Civil War was fought over the slavery issue. Abraham Lincoln was a “hero” because he freed the slaves. Actually, as we discover, when he declared war on the southern states which decided to secede from the Union, old Abe violated the Constitution allegedly to “preserve the Union.” The Civil War was in reality the War for Southern Independence – freedom from rigid economic controls by northern industrialists who influenced government – NOT an issue of slavery.
Most importantly the War for Southern Independence expressed the inviolable right of the people to be self-governing. States which voluntarily “joined” the Union of States retained the power to withdraw if it was deemed necessary. Those who say otherwise are ignorant or liars.
The U.S. Congress, in compliance with Bill Clinton’s edict, (was) contemplating legislation which would make reparations to ancestors of slaves. Aside from the insanity of such an idea you will discover upon reading Alabama State Senator Davison‘s speech that if reparations were to be made they should be made to WASPs because our ancestors were slaves long before the Africans… and for much longer. Along with this ridiculous plan, is a concerted push to ban the flag of the Confederate States of America… the southern flag.
We should keep in mind that the power elite which is orchestrating the present situation are progeny of the same elite which set into motion the events which promulgated the war. Southerners did not want war. Hired professional agitators manipulated the unsophisticated who were uneducated in the ways of propaganda. When the war started – as was expected – able bodied men, both black and white, took up arms to defend their homes and homeland.
Our intent in presenting information is not to create diversionary issues. Talk of reparations to ancestors of African slaves and the present emphasis on removing all traces of the Confederate flag is merely another tactic to reinvent history, to obliterate the truth and create hatred between races. Hopefully, as we discover how we were maneuvered into the existing chaos we’ll give up the lies… let go our belief in the invincible power of a handful of godless lunatics and begin reclaiming our Heritage as children of our Father / Creator. >>Source
ABRAHAM LINCOLN, in his debate with Senator Douglas at Quincy, IL, on Oct. 13, 1858 and quoted in Abraham Lincoln – Complete Works, published by The Century Co., 1894, Vol. I, page 273 stated:
“I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have 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 inter-marry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there ia a physical difference between the White and Black races which will ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality, and in as much 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.”
