FK – Now I know prager u is controlled opposition.
What percentage of southerners or southern soldiers owned slaves? What percentage of Yankee soldiers and officers were slavers? What did most of their letters home say about this? Read ‘The Life of Billy Yank‘ and ‘The Life of Johnny Reb.’
What happened when Lincoln issued the ’emancipation proclamation’ that only ‘freed’ the slaves still in territory controlled by the Confederate Army? Kentucky officers almost mutinied because they proclaimed “That’s not why we’re fighting.'” Many of them owned slaves. They were fighting to ‘preserve the union,’ by force. What are you if can’t un-volunteer for something you volunteered for? Are you no less a slave than those who picked cotton?
Read ‘The Real Lincoln.’ The republicrat party of that time was the original party of big govt.
Why did the Yankees invade the southern states? To ‘save’ the slaves and ‘free’ them? What absurdity. Only a child would think that as ‘racist’ and ‘supremacist’ as most ‘whites’ were at that time that they set out to kill 600,000 white soldiers and thousands of civilians to free the black slaves. The hard corp abolitionists were a minority like most political activists of whatever time period.
Did the big plantation owners who controlled the governments want to preserve slavery because it was the only economy they knew? Of course. By today’s standards they’re ‘evil’ but slavery had existed through all human history and still exists. See my column link below. We are not free here.
The slaves weren’t freed until the 13th Amendment was passed and they were raised into another form of slavery and then through the 14th Amendment we were all lowered into that same form of slavery.
As with all conquerors, our own empire, the Yankees who only won because they did have a larger industrial base and population and were taking recruits straight off the boats from Europe, and the ancient tribalists who killed the pagans for their ‘promised land’ an excuse has to be generated for all the death and destruction after the war as in “We fought for democracy, to free the slaves or to take the land promised to us by ‘our god’ regardless of what those other peoples’ gods had to say about it. WE WON so we must be right!
Might always makes right doesn’t it? The victors always write the history books and indoctrinate the next generation of soldiers so they’ll be good killers for the empire.
The uniform doesn’t give you credibility: The empire’s military hasn’t fought a war for Liberty since 1865 and the bad guys won that one.
And now that I’ve watched most of it, I”ll blatantly write you’re a lying sack of shit and proud killer for the empire and the banksters that run it. War is a racket.
The Bill of Rights is what we’re fighting for.
As always, we’re fighting the wrong war:
FK – We should’ve kept the troops home from Korea and Vietnam and had them kill the commies here first.
And from my must read/watch page:
FK – Hey, it was on Fox News so it must be true right?
