Karl Marx Congratulated Abraham Lincoln For Pretending The Civil War Was About Slavery

Karl Marx Congratulated Abraham Lincoln For Pretending The Civil War Was About Slavery.

DAS KAPITOL!

“I affirm as my conviction that class laws, placing capital above labor, are more dangerous to the Republic at this hour then chattel slavery in the days of its haughtiest supremacy. Labor is prior to and above capital, and deserves much higher consideration.” — Abraham Lincoln; taken from here

Present American Republicans should know that #1. Lincoln was no emancipator:  Forced Into Glory – The New York Times #2. Lincoln, (like the progressive he was) used the blacks to justify his war against the southerners to socialize all of America.    Just as the left uses blacks against whites, today.   #3. Lincoln was assassinated for a good reason: He brought death to his brethren and those that ‘live by the sword, die by the sword‘.    Lincoln was congratulated by one of the writers of the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx.   If you find yourself agreeing with Marx..you probably have Communist leanings without even knowing it.

Karl Marx to Abraham Lincoln:

We congratulate the American people upon your re-election by a large majority.   If resistance to the Slave Power was the reserved watchword of your first election, the triumphant war cry of your re-election is Death to Slavery.

The Communist & Socialists guided Lincoln into the “Civil war”, which was just a Communist/Socialist Revolution that the southerners were fighting against.  

Deal with THAT Republicans “Conservatives”.

More on left-wing, Commie Lincoln:

Awhile back, John Nichols, who writes for the Nation, did an article for the International Socialist Review which was entitled Reading Karl Marx with Abraham Lincoln–Utopian socialists, German communists, and other republicans. Very interesting title, and so very on target. The socialists don’t deny their involvement with Lincoln, they parade it right down Main Street, partly because they feel that decades of public “education” have rendered most Americans too dumb to realize what they are saying, and partly because they are just downright proud that Lincoln was among their number, whether he ever joined any socialist party or not (he didn’t, that we know of at this point). However, the mindset was there, which shows that socialism and communism in this country were a serious problem already by the middle of the 1800s.

And:

The point to this is that Lincoln was not just an armchair supporter of socialist and communist revolts in Europe. He knew many of those involved. He knew what they were all about, and not from a distance but from personal contact in many cases and he supported their efforts to create a new social(ist) order in Europe, one that would centralize everything in the hands of the leftists, all in the name of the “people.”  More @ Revised History

 

Lincolns Socialism, Look it up yourself if you don’t believe me:

Let’s consider the Lincoln record. During just one term (plus 45 days), Lincoln managed to do the following socialist-communist acts:

Taxed the Wealth Creators. In 1861, Lincoln signed a law enacting the nation’s first personal income tax. Eventually, those earning between $600 and $10,000 a year paid 3% and those making more paid a higher rate. This was the first move toward “progressive taxation” of individual effort and we still live with such taxes today.

Exploded Deficit Spending. When Lincoln took over from James Buchanan, the U.S. debt was $65 million; in 1865, it reached $2.7 billion — a 4000 percent increase!

Led a Federal Takeover of Currency and Banking. Lincoln’s Legal Tender Act of 1862 created “greenbacks,” Federal paper money that Americans had to accept in place of gold and silver coins. And then the banking laws of 1863 and 1864 established a system of federally-chartered banks that undercut state-chartered institutions, in disregard of the 10th Amendment.

Forced People to Work for the Federal Government. Lincoln instituted the first national conscription act, forcing American men to give up their farms and to follow the orders of his generals. Lincoln also allowed men to buy their way out of the draft with a $300 fee, exacting more money for the Federal government.

Indulged in Government Giveaways to Special Interests. Lincoln gave away huge chunks of valuable national property to vested interests:

(1) Colleges: In 1862, Lincoln signed the Land Grant act, previously vetoed by President Buchanan; it gave away 300,000 acres (or the cash equivalent) to northern states for each of their congressional representatives to be used to establish colleges that would teach agriculture, engineering, and military tactics. Today, universities like U.C. Berkeley exist on that gift, teaching subjects like sociology and Arabic.

(2) Railroads: The Pacific Railroad Acts of 1862 and 1864 signed by Lincoln authorized the federal government to give away land and to go into debt selling bonds in order to finance the first transcontinental railroad.

(3) Land-Grabbers: In 1862, Lincoln signed the Homestead Act, also previously vetoed by President Buchanan. It eventually gave away 420,000 square miles — 10% of all American land — to squatters. Moreover, the Homestead Act generated a lot of waste, fraud and abuse.

Expropriated Private Property for Redistribution. With the stroke of a pen and no constitutional authority, Lincoln expropriated about $4 billion worth of private property (in the form of human chattel), today equal in value to at least $100 billion, and handed it over to poor blacks (the human chattel themselves). Not even FDR was as redistributionist as that!

From the left-wing Berkeley Edu site:  See it yourself!

The Civil war and the Confederate flag had nothing to do with slaves.  It had to do with shoving Communism & Socialism down our throats.

And, this is why I support flying the Confederate flag.  Don’t like that?  Shove it up your a$$.

Little sermons in socialism by Abraham Lincoln

  • LINCOLN USED FOREIGN OFFICERS AND GENERALS:

    *** As Marx pointed out in his Presse article of March 26, 1862, the
    “considerable mass of military experience that emigrated to America” was
    of great help to the Union armies. Many immigrant officers recruited,
    organized, trained and commanded Northern troops. A considerable number
    of them attained high rank.

    Among the foreign-born officers who were breveted Union generals,
    there were at least ten Scots, six Canadians, five Hungarians and five
    French, and one each from Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and
    Switzerland. There were also twenty-four generals born in England and
    Wales, and twenty-seven in Ireland.

    But it was the Germans who contributed the largest contingent to the
    Union forces. Many of the German-born officers were radicals whom Marx
    knew personally. Among them were the Union colonels Friedrich Anneke,
    Friedrich Franz Hecker, and Joseph Weydemeyer — the latter, who
    commanded in St. Louis, Mo., an especially close friend of Marx.

    Among the generals whom Marx had known in their days as German
    revolutionists were Louis Blenker, who commanded a division in the Army
    of the Potomac; Alexander Schimmelfennig, who fought at Bull Run,
    Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg; Carl Schurz, who commanded a division
    at Bull Run and an Army Corps at Nash¬ville; Franz Sigel, who saw
    service at Bull Run and in Missouri; and August Willich, who commanded a
    brigade in Ohio. Marx was later to become a comrade of the French-born
    General Gustave Paul Clusseret, a Paris Communard in 1871, who served
    under both McClellan and Fremont.

    • Remnants of the failed commie revolutions of 1848.

      • After really researching Lincoln, he was just a fking Socialist who wanted ALL of America to come under Socialism/Communism

        • Indeed. Thank you kindly for posting this.

      • Hey 13: I BET that ya all learned this in Eastern Eu, huh?

        • Nope…I wasn’t born there…learned it from research my husband was doing on the War Between the States.

          Sadly, I’m a red diaper baby…parents and grandparents were leftists, big time. I ended up being just about as conservative as a person can be.

    I am somewhat surprised that Karl Marx actually knew that but considering it was Lincoln I am not at all surprised.

  • Mary Sewall

    So Harry Turtledove was right in his alternate history books in saying if Lincoln lived longer he would have been a Socialist.

    Wait… are you referring to the Emancipation Proclamation here? You’re not seriously referring to blacks as “private property in the form of human chattel”, are you? And you’re posing it as a bad thing, that he freed them?

    Hell, I’d break the Constitution to free slaves, too. And Lincoln was too nice on the Confederate slave owners, who owned “human chattel”. I would have had all the slave-owners slowly beheaded, while they were being stabbed in the back and whipped with chains. Same thing for the owners of sex slaves, today. Slave-owners of living people all deserve to be beheaded, or murdered in some other, horrific way. Lincoln was too forgiving of the Confederates.

    Yeah, and there are people who claim that Lincoln was “gei” (i.e., “gay”) and I don’t believe that, either. It’s easy to revise history and make up back-formations after the fact. Lincoln is not here to defend himself. Lincoln was a Christian, not a Commie and not a “Chicago agitator”; what he did was to finance the war and try to save the Union. Of course he believed in the value of LABOR. He was a hard-working, honest Kentuckian. It’s disgusting to try to foist modern-day Communist Chicago-isms onto the man, 50-100 years after his death!

    Lincoln:
    … corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by
    working upon the prejudices of the people, until ALL WEALTH IS AGGREGATED IN A FEW HANDS, and the Republic IS DESTROYED!

    –He sure had that right, and this is exactly where we are today in America!
