Lincoln: Racist Instigator of the Federal War Machine
Among Lincoln's unconstitutional acts were launching an invasion without the consent of Congress, blockading Southern ports before formally declaring war, unilaterally suspending the writ of habeas corpus, arresting and imprisoning thousands of Northern citizens without a warrant, censoring telegraph communications, confiscating private property, including firearms, effectively gutting the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, robbing, raping and burning the homes of undefended Southern civilians, not just men and women, but as Sherman would freely admit in his memoirs, children as well.
Even worshipful Lincoln biographers and historians called him a “dictator.” In his book, Constitutional Dictatorship, Clinton Rossiter devoted an entire chapter to Lincoln and calls him a “great dictator.” “Lincoln's amazing disregard for the . . . Constitution was considered by nobody as legal,”
Abraham Lincoln, named the great emancipator and champion of the constitution by government school textbooks, was more concerned with exercising federal control over sovereign states, than he was in freeing the negro from the shackles of slavery. He himself made this clear in no uncertain terms.
On March 4th 1861 Lincoln clarified his position on slavery in his first inaugural address on the East Portico of the Capital building:
“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”
While America’s children continue to be brainwashed into believing that Lincoln was the savior of the black man, the Congressman from Illinois tells a different tale in his Fourth debate with Stephen Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, 1858):
“I will say then that 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 – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the 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.”Abraham Lincoln

Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858
(The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146.)
The long list of Lincoln’s recorded remarks which would readily and fervently be condemned as racist hate speech today, includes his views on
the expansion of slavery. Lincoln wrote,
“There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation (mixture) of the white and black races ... A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation, but as an immediate separation is impossible, the next best thing is to keep them apart where they are not already together. If white and black people never get together in Kansas, they will never mix blood in Kansas ...”
On equality, Lincoln said,
“I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races.
There is physical difference between the two which, in my judgment, will probably forever
forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes
a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race,
to which I belong, having the superior position.”..
On interracial Marriage, Lincoln said,
“Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. Family life may also collapse and the increase of mixed breed bastards may someday challenge the supremacy of the white man.”
