From your prior post to me, #41: “So, are you suggesting that the same sort of traitorous bastards who turned their backs on their country....” That’s where I got that, OK.
To disabuse you of some ignorant righteous indignation of the same “tut-tut” variety discussed in this thread:
The colonies of Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia were all later Southern states. Those colonies produced Founding Fathers who created the US, who had descendants and these descendants seceded from the US, in consultation with their state legislatures (in which many,if not most were in a leadership role) based on their understanding of the Constitution.
A few examples: the Lees of Virginia (all of them- one a step grandson of George Washington), President John Tyler(who fought secession until there was no choice), John B. Gordon (GA),Lt. Col. Waller Patton and his brother Col George S. Patton (yes, the grandfather of Gen. George S. Patton (all descendants of Rev. War Gen’l Hugh Mercer, Washington’s right hand man)and Vice Pres. John Breckinridge. ALL of these descendants of our Founders seceded from the US. Traitorous bastards, yeah, right. PC history must have glossed over who they were.
There were also in Northern states, descendants of Founders and Framers who sided with the South in its secession, again based on an understanding of the Constitution that most in the US had. These were mostly not in on the greedy railroad and West expansion cartels.
All of these people seceded in much the same understanding of the Constitution that Federalist delegates from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island had when in 1814, they threatened to secede in their opposition to the War of 1812, intending to make a separate peace with Britain. Presaging the coming divide of North from South.
The truth of Lincoln is pretty well known with all his inconvenient truths and ludicrous portrayals in Hollywood. For obamao and his minions to try to compare him to Lincoln is beyond laughable, and at the same time indicative of the deviousness of these lying social justice marxists. Still working the white guilt vote, to continue the racial divide and set back race relations 50 years. It is an old communist tactic in the US- no surprise in sychrony with leftie Hollywood- and disgusting. We cannot have a pretender king pretending to be an emancipator while systematically destroying our Constitutional Republic. The South will definitely not have it.
Yep, traitorous bastards.
