Now youve done it! The Southrons of Free Republic will rise up in defense of old Dixie to explain how it was actually the Proto Facist Abe Lincoln and the Jewish bankers of NYC who started the Civil War!
We’ll, it seems we just heard from the liberal southern hating bigots on FR.
I don’t think too many of us here are particularly amused with the filthy Central Government bequeathed by Lincoln! Hmmm?
Abe Lincoln clearly started the war by sending a fleet of warships with orders to fire upon the confederates if they did not obey his will to keep a garrison in Ft. Sumter.
So far as I know, Jewish bankers had not a D@mn thing to do with it, but Wealthy, White, Rich, Privileged, Liberal Captains of Industry from New York and the North East clearly recognized that they would be heavily damaged or perhaps destroyed financially if the South was allowed to engage in European trade without their control.
This is why they offered the South the ultimate protection for slavery when they passed the Corwin Amendment with only Northern state votes.
