Lincoln Re-Examined

-- Lincoln was a learned man, but he was earthy, too. He drew on deep learning and applied it widely. He talks in parables and finds a story to illustrate just about every situation and strategy. -- Further evidence that hawkish Neo-cons like Mrs. Fields and others idolize Lincoln to the point of worship. "He talks in parables"? Is he being elevated to the same status as Jesus, all of a sudden? Once again, the Neo-cons show just how close they are to their Progressive brethren, who also idolize Lincoln's love for power and big government. Arguably, Abe was the first in an ignoble series of Fascist presidents that stomped on the Constitution and our rights, for instance: Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Johnson, Nixon, etc.

Arguably you're a simpleton. Lincoln DID like a homespun parable for good effect. That says he was a man of the people; don't you like those kinds of men? Did he ever claim to be a saint? Why do you hate the man? He never touched your daughter.

Furthermore, you SOB,

I have no "progressive brethren." I'm strictly me; careful of whom I support. Neither too right-wing nor leftist either. Mine are people of GOOD WILL. Why not try that on yourself? You're just another knee-jerk gangster.

I assume that you use "Neo-con" in the sense of meaning Jews. Yep, Neo-cons and Leftists have a common goal -- weakening American society. They disagree on foreign policy and domestic economic policy, but all want to cripple American society. Jews have experienced extreme persecution everywhere they have ever lived. But most Jews-in-America immigrated from Europe. All social animals fear/distrust others not of their race. This is Human Nature: hard-wired, natural, innate, immutable, inherited. It's also Human Nature to have trouble seeing facts that make your wishes impossible. Jews want to be able to live in other societies in peace. Human Nature makes this impossible. So, they imagine alternate realities that do not. Jews tend to believe

that their problems in Europe were caused by the Christian religion. This was the foundation of European/Christian/Western Civilization. So, European Jews became the spearhead of every anti-Christian movement in Europe. First and foremost -- Leftism. Jews are much more intelligent than Euro-white people, but they seem to have blind spots. Even stupid goys quickly figured out that Leftism was an atempt to destroy Christian culture, religion, morality, art, etc. And they didn't appreciate it. Even in our benighted way, we began resisting Leftism. As Jews were easily identifiable as the brains and the bankers behind Leftism, Jews became one major target of resistance. This is modern times; Jews also had other problems in the Middle Ages....

Anyhow, to weaken white-American society, alliances with those competing with whites makes sense. In addition to direct attack via the ACLU and SLPC, support of black power movements (AKA civil rights) has also worked well (affirmative action, quotas, set-asides, hate-crime laws, etc.). Naturally, Lincoln, who crushed Southern whites (forget the slaves) will be a major hero. Reconstruction was a progenitor of all modern civil-rights legislation, doing nation-wide what Reconstruction had done in the South -- make whites second-class citizens in our own country.

"White-American society."

There's the whole matter in a nutshell. You think racial prejudice is your God-given right. No other "society" should get a break.

Thanks for showing us your duece in the hole, Pal.

Don't tell me that Jews, Chinese, or others are "more intelligent" than other peoples. An intelligent people would never have believed that their "Semitic brethren" on the western edge of the late 19th century Ottoman Empire would welcome them; or that a religion whose supremacism is written into its most sacred texts would feel anything but contempt and loathing for them, even if it was also anti-Trinitarian. Some Jews are intelligent, others are dumb; lust like every other tribe on the planet.

Kepha: As a matter of fact Jews ARE more intelligent than other peoples. There is a reason: I will NOT explain -- I’d rather let you twist in the wind. But if you’re curious, and wish to know, you will find the answer in Ernest Van Den Haag’s brilliant book “The Jewish Mystique” available used on Amazon.
Every schoolchild with enough smarts and curiosity to get beyond the latest video game of "Call of Duty" ought to go see "Lincoln," the movie, and check out the references and his own attention span. It requires patience, but it shows through dramatic action how a self-taught rustic from the deep backwoods had the emotional and intellectual discipline to overcome poverty and grow up to be a president to rank among the greatest.

This is not about the American Dream or a Horatio Alger story. (Does anybody remember him?) Nor is it mythmaking. It's made of sterner stuff than that....
