Civil War?

by thoughtfulconservative

Let’s see. To paraphrase:

#WIunion is a rebellion against a democratically-elected government by union members when they lost an election in a system rigged to protect them. They demonstrated in order to preserve their ability to enslave taxpayers…

Amplify’d from
The Civil War was a rebellion against a democratically-elected government by white southerners when they lost an election in a system rigged to protect them.  They committed treason in order to preserve their ability to enslave African-Americans.

From the “What was he thinking?” files

by thoughtfulconservative

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell, reviving a controversy that had been dormant for eight years, has declared that April will be Confederate History Month in Virginia, a move that angered civil rights leaders Tuesday but that political observers said would strengthen his position with his conservative base.

via McDonnell’s Confederate History Month proclamation irks civil rights leaders.

Who in the world thought this was a good idea?

If you want to declare something, how about “Civil War History Month?”

So much for an up and coming Republican.

How many times can they shoot themselves in the foot?

Didn’t we fight a war about this?

9 US States Declare Sovreignty

I believe this is called secession, and I’m pretty sure we fought a war over this. So why is it coming up again?

On a somewhat related note,  Human Events offered a book The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War which looks designed to show the North and her leaders did nothing right and the South and her leaders did nothing wrong regarding the Civil War.

It will show

Why Robert E. Lee had a higher regard for African Americans than Lincoln did

How, if there had been no Civil War, the South would have abolished slavery peaceably (as every other country in the Western Hemisphere did in the nineteenth century)

How the Confederate States of America might have helped the Allies win World War I sooner.

Leading Northern generals–like McClellan and Sherman–hated abolitionists

Bombing people “back to the Stone Age” got its start with the Federal siege of Vicksburg

General Sherman professed not to know which was “the greater evil”: slavery or democracy

Stonewall Jackson founded a Sunday school for slaves where he taught them how to read

General James Longstreet fought the Battle of Sharpsburg in his carpet slippers

Is this really “the truth of the Civil War?”
