Lincoln, Democrat?

Plaque on Public University?s Campus Identifying Abraham Lincoln as a ?Democrat? Ignites Controversy | TheBlaze.com

Creative history through saying something enough times it makes it true.

Revisionist history. Our history books in U.S. schools are full of it, so might as well do the plaques too I guess.
Thanks from azchurchmouse and pana8

That doesn't make him a Democrat, he was what he was.

Today he may choose another party or no party at all but he's not here today, so he is forever a Republican of history.

I agree. and the plaque is very old but I thought it was interesting anyway. Maybe Im a bit paranoid since I just finished up reading "1984" since I hadn't read it for many years. Manipulating history seems to be snowballing and there has even been a program funded by the gov. to accomplish this in the Common Core program.

Your party abandoned JFK does that make him a Republican. JFK and Reagan were one in the same.


MLK also was a republican..

and guess what.. Presidents still cannot borrow money.

The party of Lincoln literally became the party of anti-civil rights. Yes he was a republican, back when republicans were on the side of civil rights and many democrats weren't. Until all the racist democrats(Dixicrats) left the party and became republicans.

Lincoln was not a Democrat period.

The Democrats wanted segregation and slavery. They still do.

No shit Sherlock, I didn't say that he was a democrat. Pay attention or stay out of the conversation. And since you are unable to actually comprehend facts, let me again inform you of the actual history. The racist slavery supporting anticivil rights democrats left the party and became republicans, they were the Dixiecrats and they brought their racism to the republican party with them. It happened during the 1960s with the Civil Rights Act. The party of Lincoln is now the party of racists.
