Happy Juneteenth!

As we celebrate our first official Juneteenth National Independence Day, I find my mind turning to John Wilkes Booth who assassinated the tyrant Abraham “Africanus the First” Lincoln. It is worth remembering why Booth assassinated Lincoln. He killed him to avenge the South, to cut down a tyrant and to strike a blow against what the curse of “Black Republicanism” represented.

Politico:

“When Abraham Lincoln was running for reelection in 1864, a typical Democratic Party newspaper warned that should Lincoln earn a second term in office, his administration would bring about the “blending of the white and the black”—an epidemic of black men and “snow-white bosomed” women falling into sexual liaisons—a profusion of “squint-eyed yellow babies” born to “every Abolition woman … quickened by the pure blood of the majestic African.” It was a common refrain that ugly election season, in which Democrats cast the coming election as a battle for the sanctity of the white race, a struggle with a clearly identifiable villain: “Abraham Africanus the First,” rumored to be “of negro blood … brutal in all his habits. … He is obscene. … He is an animal … Filthy black nigger, greasy, sweaty, and disgusting, now jostle white people and even ladies everywhere, at the President’s levees.”

This is what the Democrats were saying about him in 1864. It is also what Stephen Douglas warned would happen in the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans wanted to Africanize the country and degrade Whites to a social position inferior to blacks. In retrospect, we can look back on their dire warnings and conclude they were right as that is exactly what has happened.

U.S. News and World Report:

“In the span of only a few years, though, as war consumed his presidency, Lincoln’s views on slavery dramatically shifted. He surprised his own cabinet in 1862 with his plans to issue an emancipation proclamation. And though he still occasionally floated the idea of “colonizing” African-Americans, in the months before he died, Lincoln had not only given slaves their freedom; he’d also begun to promote full equality, including voting rights, for blacks. …”

In what was arguably the single most dramatic moment in American political history, John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in Ford’s Theater in Washington, DC in April 1865.

Booth leapt from the presidential box, raised his dagger over his head and yelled “Sic semper tyrannis, The South is Avenged!” Thus always to tyrants is the official state motto of Virginia. It is on the state flag. Back in those days, many Americans still identified with the classical republican tradition.

The decision, sadly, would prove to have dire consequences. When John Wilkes Booth, a young actor sympathetic to the Southern cause, heard Lincoln’s promises, he told a friend: “That means nigger citizenship. Now, by God, I’ll put him through. That is the last speech he will ever make.” Three days later, Booth shot Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington. …”

This is what John Wilkes Booth believed and why he killed Abraham Lincoln. It is also what the Confederacy fought for in the War Between the States. The Confederates fought to preserve the “Union As It Was” for posterity, NOT for a “New Birth of Freedom.”

“This country was formed for the white not for the black man. And looking upon African slavery from the same stand-point, as held by those noble framers of our Constitution, I for one, have ever considered it, one of the greatest blessings (both for themselves and us) that God ever bestowed upon a favored nation.”

This was the Republican National Convention last year!

Donald Trump ran for reelection on Juneteenth and the Platinum Plan.

“The Miscegenation Ball at the Headquarters of the Lincoln Central Campaign Club, Corner of Broadway and Twenty Third Street New York Sept. 22d. 1864 being a perfect fac simile of the room &c. &c. (From the New York World Sept. 23d. 1864). No sooner were the formal proceedings and speeches hurried through with, than the room was cleared for a “negro ball,” which then and there took place!

Some members of the “Central Lincoln Club” left the room before the mystical and circling rites of languishing glance and mazy dance commenced. But that Many remained is also true. This fact We Certify, “that on the floor during the progress of the ball were many of the accredited leaders of the Black Republican party, thus testifying their faith by works in the hall and headquarters of their political gathering. There were Republican Office-Holders, and prominent men of various degrees, and at least one Presidential Elector On The Republican Ticket.”

This is what John Wilkes Booth wrote in his diary:

“After being hunted like a dog through swamps, woods, and … chased by gun boats till I was forced to return wet, cold, and starving, with every mans hand against me, I am here in despair. And why; For doing what Brutus was honored for, what made Tell a Hero. And yet I for striking down a greater tyrant than they ever knew am looked upon as a common cuttthroat … I hoped for no gain. I knew no private wrong. I struck for my country and that alone … I do not repent the blow I struck. I may before my God but not to man.”

    • FIrst I’ve EVER heard of that cavil against ‘Honest’ Abe.
      But the more I read of history, the less I even honor the memory of that Traitor.

      And the bLACKs? They grow more ugly and loathsome, every day.
      They are not, and never were, the recipients of Christ’s favor, for they are not, and never can be, Israelites [Matt. 1:21, Acts 1:6, Rom. 1:16ff.]. Anathema sit.

  1. ‘The age old Republican dream of Africanizing America has finally been realized in the 21st century’

    This is the spirit of New England – bleed for it, sweat for it, hunger and die for it go through an incredible struggle for it, and then?

    Give it away to someone else.

    Can or you say Puritan?

    No?

    How about Anabaptist, Congregational, or Unitarian?

    Call it what you want – it still is the same thing – ascetick lunacy.

  2. Well, that’s the Official Story of why JWB killed Lincoln – like so many events in history we’ll never hear the actual reason.

    • He might have been another Jack Rubenstein. The tribe assassinates leaders they don’t like at the drop of a hat. Even ones they previously supported.

      • There was a lot of stuff going on with “Greenbacks” and the European Jewish Banking Oligarchy(Rothschilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, Pincuses etc)when Lincoln was in office. Lincoln did not want to pay the kikes’ demand for 25% interest on the issue of debt to fund the Civil War so Lincoln issued debt-free Greenbacks and – just like with Hitler – that was a big no-no. Rest assured – freeing the niggers had little to do with Lincoln’s assassination.

      • “tribe assassinates leaders they don’t like at the drop of a hat”

        History is filled with examples.
        ( I wish someone would compose a book of jwsh assassin’s, throughout history. T would be a valuable lesson, for generations. )

  3. The past is prologue. It took 100 years to achieve the beginning of the end of the White race. Ironically, the North lost just as much as the South from Lincoln’s “new birth of freedom”.

  4. Lincoln was a monster but do we really know Booth’s motivation? We don’t know the truth about 70% of WWII and that was only 75 years ago.

  5. Booth’s act condemned the South to Reconstruction by angering the North. Lincoln was of a lenient disposition.

    • Iincoln had one stellar virtue, he planned to recolonize blacks to afreeka or the Caribbean.
      Booth acted at the very worst moment in history.

      • Read the post.

        It was Democrats in the Lower Midwest and Border South who wanted him to do that. He went along with it to “preserve the Union” and made a few token gestures in that direction. Some free blacks were sent to Haiti only to be brought back. As the Confederacy collapsed, Lincoln changed his position and endorsed giving voting rights to black veterans in Louisiana, which is why Booth killed him. Booth was standing in the crowd when he gave that speech. It is what set him off.

        • Lincoln, 3 days before his assassination, to gen. Butler

          “I can hardly believe that the South and North can live in peace, unless we can get rid of the negroes. I believe that it would be better to export them all to some fertile country…”

          Texas was considered, when other alternatives were considered impractical.

    • @Mainz…

      “Booth’s act condemned the South to Reconstruction by angering the North. Lincoln was of a lenient disposition.”

      Sir, Booth did nothing to bring on or change the tyrannical nature of The Spirit of New England, that, not only ran in New England, but was present in other Northeastern States, where ‘Radical Republicanism’ ran rife.

      As to Lincoln being ‘lenient’, I do not know how you can say that when he is, bar none, the greatest war criminal in the history of The US.

      His blockade of The South, to try and starve out and deprive of medical supplies, Southern women, children, and old men, is the mid 19th century equivalent of Sir Arthur Harris firebombing campaigns of Germans cities, some 80 years later.

  6. I say that this Government was established on the white basis. It was made by white men, for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever, and never should be administered by any except white men.
    — Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln-Douglas debates, Fourth Debate: Charleston, Illinois, 09/18/1858

    …I am told that I have but eight minutes more. I would like to talk to you an hour and a half longer, but I will make the best use I can of the remaining eight minutes. Mr. Lincoln said in his first remarks that he was not in favor of the social and political equality of the negro with the white man. Every where up north he has declared that he was not in favor of the social and political equality of the negro, but he would not say whether or not he was opposed to negroes voting and negro citizenship. I want to know whether he is for or against negro citizenship? He declared his utter opposition to the Dred Scott decision, and advanced as a reason that the court had decided that it was not possible for a negro to be a citizen under the Constitution of the United States. If he is opposed to the Dred Scott decision for that reason, he must be in favor of confering the right and privilege of citizenship upon the negro! I have been trying to get an answer from him on that point, but have never yet obtained one, and I will show you why. In every speech he made in the north he quoted the Declaration of Independence to prove that all men were created equal, and insisted that the phrase “all men,” included the negro as well as the white man, and that the equality rested upon Divine law. Here is what he said on that point:

    “I should like to know if, taking this old Declaration of Independence, which declares that all men are equal upon principle, and making exceptions to it, where will it stop? If one man says it does not mean a negro, why may not another say it does not mean some other man? If that declaration is not the truth, let us get the statute book in which we find it and bear it out.”

    Lincoln maintains there that the Declaration of Independence asserts that the negro is equal to the white man, and that under Divine law, and if he believes so it was rational for him to advocate negro citizenship, which, when allowed, puts the negro on an equality under the law. I say to you in all frankness, gentlemen, that in my opinion a negro is not a citizen, cannot be, and ought not to be, under the Constitution of the United States. I will not even qualify my opinion to meet the declaration of one of the Judges of the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case, “that a negro descended from African parents, who was imported into this country as a slave is not a citizen, and cannot be.” I say that this Government was established on the white basis. It was made by white men, for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever, and never should be administered by any except white men. I declare that a negro ought not to be a citizen, whether his parents were imported into this country as slaves or not, or whether or not he was born here. It does not depend upon the place a negro’s parents were born, or whether they were slaves or not, but upon the fact that he is a negro, belonging to a race incapable of self-government, and for that reason ought not to be on an equality with white men. (Immense applause.)

    My friends, I am sorry that I have not time to pursue this argument further, as I might have done but for the fact that Mr. Lincoln compelled me to occupy a portion of my time in repelling those gross slanders and falsehoods that Trumbull has invented against me and put in circulation. In conclusion, let me ask you why should this Government be divided by a geographical line-arraying all men North in one great hostile party against all men South? Mr. Lincoln tells you, in his speech at Springfield, “that a house divided against itself cannot stand; that this Government, divided into free and slave States, cannot endure permanently; that they must either be all free or all slave; all one thing or all the other.” Why cannot this Government endure divided into free and slave States, as our fathers made it? When this Government was established by Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Jay, Hamilton, Franklin, and the other sages and patriots of that day, it was composed of free States and slave States, bound together by one common Constitution. We have existed and prospered from that day to this thus divided, and have increased with a rapidity never before equaled in wealth, the extension of territory, and all the elements of power and greatness, until we have become the first nation on the face of the globe. Why can we not thus continue to prosper? We can if we will live up to and execute the Government upon those principles upon which our fathers established it. During the whole period of our existence Divine Providence has smiled upon us, and showered upon our nation richer and more abundant blessings than have ever been conferred upon any other.

    Senator Douglas’ time here expired, and he stopped on the minute, amidst deafening applause.

    And the original union was NOT PRESERVED by Lincoln’s War to Prevent Southern Independence.

  7. “Read the post.”

    Much of it is drawn from the current SJW press, who will take pains not to tarnish the reputation of “the Great Emancipator”.

    Seems to me, Lincoln was following the pattern set by PM Wilberforce’s government.
    To free blacks and repatriate them to Africa, as the British did with their blacks, sending them to Guinea. However, the US lacked the wealth and naval resources to do the same with it’s millions of blacks. So, more practical options were considered, i.e. texas.

    The current political clutter obscures so many facts. I think Lincoln was right, a divided nation would be easy pickings for the Great Powers in Europe. Davis was wrong , in restraining Beauregard from taking Washington DC. The war would have ended quickly and we could be living in a much freer CS.

    • @John…

      For Southerners, this is just the 3rd round with this kind of thing.

      Yes, every half century, or so, New England throws another looney fit and focuses itself on The South.

      That said, this is a little different in that I think they are now focused on every Rural and Smalltown White man in this country, including in their own New England!

      That said, Southerners are increasingly coming to grips with the pointlessness and cheerlessness of staying in a nation that is totally invested in finding ways to disenfranchise us, marginalize us, and replace us.

      We won’t have it, and whether the change comes from flashpoints in The Northwest or not, we are simply not going to live this way.

  8. Of course, “Juneteenth” was the end of slavery in the South- but NOT the north. Northern states such as Delaware continued with full legal slavery up until the 13th Amendment was ratified.
