Do you think that statement is over the top?
Feast your eyes on this gem from a confederate heritage idiot:
And what did this moron claim when posting this? “Any plan of gradual, compensated emancipation would have been welcomed, as it was in every other country that ended slavery in the Western Hemisphere. But having it forced upon us, when it was well-known immediate emancipation had been employed by the British to incite insurrection in the 1st Revolution?”
In another area of the internet another proconfederate idiot posts the following lies: “It was the oppression of the Northern States that forced a reluctant South to leave. Import tariffs-the South bore the brunt of it. Excessive export tariffs on cotton to fund the construction of Northern factories, suppression of Southern newspapers and Yankees throwing rocks and horse dung at visiting Southerners. This history is suppressed in favor of Treasury of Virtue.” We’ve dealt with the tariff lie a few times already in this blog. There were no export tariffs, of course, and the US Treasury didn’t fund the construction of factories. Also, there was no suppression of southern newspapers. Perhaps there was throwing rocks and horse dung at slave owners in the North attempting to kidnap blacks to bring south into slavery. But the rest of it is definitely a huge bunch of lies, which as we know is all confederate heritage people have.
This is proof these idiots have no clue about history and don’t really care to learn anything about history. They simply make things up and go with whatever makes them feel good. What’s really scary is these morons vote.
