North Carolina GOP Lawmaker Calls Abraham Lincoln a 'Tyrant' Like Adolf Hitler
Time ^ | 4-12-2017 | Alana Abramson

Pittman replied, "And if Hitler had won, should the world just get over it? Lincoln was the same sort of tyrant, and personally responsible for the deaths of over 800,000 Americans in a war that was unnecessary and unconstitutional." Pittman did not respond to request for comment from TIME to clarify his remarks.

Completely agree with him. Too bad it will probably cost him his career.

Comparing Lincoln to Hitler is stupid but a lot of people believe Lincoln was a tyrant who exceeded Conditional authority.

You know, I understand having conflicting views about Lincoln. However, how incredibly stupid for a politician to spew such noxious garbage to the public. Nothing positive can come out of it.

Why are these neo-Confederates in the Republican Party at all?

Lincoln wasn't Hitler. Lincoln was Caesar and Booth was Brutus.

Sic Semper Tyrannis. Lincoln and Caesar the destroyers of republics.

I’m smart enough not to say a lot of things I think. Too bad this guy isn’t that smart.

Lincoln was a power hungry brutal butcher that destroyed the original republic, but other that, I have no problem with the man.

Hitler had people taken off the street for: Race, religion, undesirable, homosexual... had them put in boxcars and sent to extermination camps. He wanted to kill every Jew in Germany. He implemented a plan that made a big dent toward that goal.

Lincoln at worst disagreed with people and tried to enforce his mistaken impression of what was right or wrong via war.

There is a massive difference.

The South disagreeing with Lincoln also waged war to prevail asserting their views.

Other than ruining or killing off an entire generation of good American Christians and splitting a nation over grievances that could have easily been settled diplomatically, yes he was a great man!

Well, to all of you Lincoln haters, what can I say? I guess it all depends on what criteria you use to judge him. I can only say I’m not familiar with some of the criteria being used here.
