Lincoln was a white supremacist

During one of the famous 1858 debates with Senator Stephen Douglas, Lincoln told Douglas and the debate spectators:

“I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races . . . I am not now nor have ever been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people . . . there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

Off with Lincoln’s head! Tear down those statues. Blow up the Lincoln Memorial and move the MLK monument to where Lincoln’s used to stand.

(Thanks to former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson for the Lincoln quote.)

Up until fairly recently most educated white people believed blacks were genetically inferior. That good liberal Woodrow Wilson (a solid democrat academic) was the one who formally segregated the ranks of the U. S. Army.
