Major Update: I was linked by some foul mouthed childish liberal nut, who had a good point – this Lincoln quote I saw in a Washington Times article is an internet fake. Of course I cannot fact check the news media, and if the emotionally stunted blogger would have simply emailed me with the fact this was one of those urban legends I would do what I am doing now, alertiing folks that the quote is a fraud. Of course it would have come with a sincere thanks if the poor sap had shown some maturity. But his faults don’t change the fact this is not a Lincoln quote. My apologies to Lincoln (not those who give aid to our enemies).
This is a wonderful quote from “honest Abe Lincoln” that should be on every conservative website as a reminder to America why the Dems are not to be trusted with our national security:
Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.
â€” President Abraham Lincoln
Now who is going to argue with Abraham Lincoln? If you oppose the Democrat plans to surrender Iraq, post this quote someplace.
Addendum: I should note that at the time, the enemy was our American brothers in the South. Alliances and connections to our brothers in the South were not a big surprise or limited, so Lincoln’s comments must be seen in his desire TO END the war quickly to stop the bloodshed. It is hard to imagine how liberals would tolerate a lesser standard of allegiance with regard to the Islamo Fascists than was quartered our own people, but they do. It simply illustrates their hate of America, and therefore their irrelevance to the debate.
