Another very common way of tricking you into believing in fairytales and the complete opposite of what is true is to rewrite history to fit the agenda. The examples are pretty much endless. Everything from blaming the ‘Great Depression’ on capitalism to arguing that Alky Aida had ties to Saddam Hussein.
A few stories surpasses the ordinary lying and becomes more than that, they become part of folklore, part of society and a part of who we are. Religious beliefs are the most blatant example of this; the manmade global warming scam is well on its way to be one to, albeit things have recently taken a turn in the opposite direction with that lie. They´ve also tried to do the same with smoking, fatty food and salt, with a decent success rate.
However I will here tell you another story, that of the evil Imperialistic despot Abraham Lincoln.
The story we get told in school and what is public “knowledge” is that Lincoln fought for U.S. unification and fought against slavery. He has been popularized by movies, papers and has his own statue in Washington. A hero.
This is a horrible and malevolent lie.
Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant, nothing else.
Don´t believe me? Of course you don´t, your entire life the lies have been feed to you, why would your brain all of a sudden accept something that is the complete opposite of what you think is true?
From here: Lincoln illegally suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus and imprisoned tens of thousands of Northern political critics without any due process; shut down hundreds of opposition newspapers; deported Congressman Clement Vallandigham of Ohio for criticizing him; threatened to imprison Chief Justice Roger B. Taney for issuing the (correct) opinion that Lincoln’s suspension of Habeas Corpus was unconstitutional; censored all telegraphs; rigged elections; imprisoned duly elected members of the Maryland legislature along with Congressman Henry May of Baltimore and the mayor of Baltimore; illegally orchestrated the secession of West Virginia to give the Republican Party two more U.S. senators; confiscated firearms in the border states in violation of the Second Amendment; and committed a grand act of treason by invading the sovereign states of the South (Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution defines treason as "only" levying war against the states, or giving aid and comfort to their enemies).
This is only one of many articles, books and reports showing the truth about a truly evil man, it is all dismissed and never talked about. And above is by no means all. It is on record, and very well documented, how deeply Lincoln disliked Negroes. He wanted them out of the country and time and again showed that he didn´t care one bit about the slavery issue. He was also pro-colonization and on several occasions expressed a liking of empire building, which is, more than likely, the reason why he, against the law and constitution, waged war against the South.
As he got into office, he launched a military invasion without the consent of Congress, which is unconstitutional; declared martial law; blockaded Southern ports, which is unconstitutional without declaring war; and he suspended the writ of habeas corpus and committed plenty of other atrocities along the way before finally a man stepped up and on April 14, 1865, and ended the life of one of the worst leaders in western history. I do agree that calling John Wilkes Booth “a hero” is to take it too far. Booth had several shady reasons for his act; however the end result, with a dead Lincoln, should be celebrated.
Lincoln was no hero; he was a despicable man and one of the main reasons why U.S. politicians started to ignore the constitution, which in turn has lead to a warmongering state of financial madness soon to crash and burn as all other empires before.
I have just revealed a lie to you. Feeling confused? Still don´t believe me? I suggest that you find out the truth for yourself, don´t take my word for it. In this case, as in most cases, the truth is easy to find, it’s just been tucked away and then we get the stories feed to us in a way that makes us not go and look for the truth ourselves. It’s hard to read, search and actually think for yourself (not really, but it is much easier to buy the lies), which is just what they count on…
