Yankees Hang Lincoln on Presidents Day ( Old news but well worth reading)
It took the Yankees in Keene, New Hampshire about 150 years to figure out (or acknowledge) what we have known about that wicked tyrant, Abraham Lincoln, down here in the South since the War to Prevent Southern Independence. Better late than never I guess...
So, why did these Yankees hang the Empire's favorite son?
According to the Keene Free Press, this patriotic display by the New Hampshire Sons of Liberty was a result of them being "Disturbed by current efforts to justify totalitarianism by appealing to Abe Lincoln's legacy."
Truer words were never spoken!
The effigy of the president was hanged without the benefit of clergy on President’s Day, after a short program that began at 8 p.m. in the town square. The charges for which he was hanged were affixed to the effigy and were as follows:
• That he suspended the writ of habeas corpus – treason, and an act of war against the American people.
• That he imprisoned tens of thousands of Union political opponents – treason, and an act of war against the American people.
• That he shut down hundreds of Union opposition newspapers – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution, specifically the first amendment.
• That he waged total warfare on the South, burning her cities, permitting rape of Southern women, and destroying the agriculture and means of food production, intentionally targeting civilians – treason, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
• That he pledged to support a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting the federal government from ever interfering with slavery – crimes against humanity, particularly African Americans.
• That he was a lifelong white supremacist who advocated deporting slaves to Africa – crimes against humanity, particularly African Americans.
• That he waged the bloodiest war in American history to prevent them instituting “new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness” – treason.
• That he deported opposition leader, Ohio Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham in 1863 – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution, specifically the separation of powers.
• That he launched an invasion without the consent of Congress – treason, and a war crime.
• That he censored all telegraph communications – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution, particularly the first amendment.
• That he imprisoned a large percentage of Maryland’s legislature and the mayor of Baltimore – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution, particularly the tenth amendment.
• That he orchestrated the Unconstitutional secession of West Virginia from Virginia, in defiance of the Constitution’s mandate that no new state may be formed from part of another state without that state’s permission – treason, and violation of his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution.
• That he signed an arrest warrant for the 84 year old Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Roger B. Taney, for ruling against him on the suspension of habeas corpus – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, particularly the separation of powers.
• That he carried out a campaign of intimidation against federal judges in order to prevent them from ruling against his actions, specifically by surrounding their homes with federal marshals – treason, and a violation of his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, particularly the separation of powers.
No Southerner could have articulated the crimes of Honest Abe better themselves. These patriots of the North have got it exactly right.
It is reported that the dead president “hung around” the town square approximately 24 hours before being taken down.
While the federal Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission is coordinating three years of events surrounding the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth on February 12, 2009, we hope all Americans, North and South, will reflect upon what was gained and what was lost at Appomattox. Perhaps the commission will consult the citizens of New Hampshire as to the proper way to get the party going. Well, perhaps that is asking too much!
