The Washington Post is, after all, the self-appointed defender of truth, social justice, and the American way of democracy from the treasonous Trump and other insidious purveyors of racism, inequality, and incipient fascism such as the white-privileged Founding Fathers and the horrific traitorous secessionists of the Southern Confederacy.
Historian Brion McClanahan performs a heroic, honest and thorough demolition of the court historians attack on revisionists of the War for Southern Independence who have long provided authoritative documentation of the destructive impact of the German “48ers” on Abraham Lincoln and the course of the Civil War.
Yeah, these German guys were real, honest to Marx, commies who had fled the German Confederation (principalities such as Prussia) in Europe during the Revolution of 1848, and came to the good old USA. And it turned out the hated revisionists were right all along but that the commies, like Lincoln, were the good guys according to the Washington Post.
Check out Karl Marx’s famous letter to Honest Abe.
And finally check out how the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) gathered in a massive 1939 Chicago rally in September (just days after World War II erupted in Europe). A giant iconic image of Lincoln dominates the stage. This was when the Party, led by General Secretary Earl Browder, was pushing the slogan, “Communism is 20th Century Americanism.” Who better to choose than the Great Emancipator as the symbol of their duplicitous campaign of subversion and class warfare because Lincoln, as the destroyer of the decentralized federal republic of independent sovereign states created by the American Framers, precipitated the murderous War for Coercive National Unification.1:59 pm on August 1, 2019
