Abraham Lincoln the Monster

I’ve got so much stuff to post on this, but for now, here’s this via Rockwell: Judge Andrew Napolitano on Lincoln the monster.

With any luck, the ignorant "that’s not what I learned in 2nd grade" attacks on Ron Paul will continue. It’s high time that Lincoln’s credentials as deity come under serious and open public scrutiny. Already, thousands of people are for the first time in their lives learning that "Honest Abe" may not be all there is to the story. That can only be to the good.

One day, when speaking of history’s tyrants, Lincoln will at the very least show up in the same paragraph as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and so on. Start getting used to the sound of it. 650,000 people, people! Americans; killed by other Americans. Tens of thousands of women raped; hundreds of millions in property wantonly burned and otherwise destroyed.

    Paul should definitely bring this up next time someone on Fox brings up Lincoln with him.

    "Paul should definitely bring this up next time someone on Fox brings up Lincoln with him."

    Hah! Yes, that's right and correct, too. But I think he understands there are limits in what he can do from a practical political standpoint. Fully integrated honesty? Certainly not. Just a little more honest.

    I'm gratified for that, at least.

    That's not to say that he can't raise plain facts, but he's probably going to have to stop short of calling Lincoln the monster he is.

    I had lent my friend S. a copy of Rebecca West's The New Meaning of Treason and she observed (among other comments) that after reading it Ron Paul reminded her of William Joyce and that she could well imagine him making radio broadcasts of the same nature "for our own good" as she sarcastically put it. (After all, he has appeared on the Alex Jones show.)

    As is well known, my friend S. is a notorious extremist. but Representative Paul's associations with the Lew Rockwell Confederate crowd and the 9/11 Truthers tend to give the, uh, wrong impression.
