Was the Civil War About Slavery?

10 August 2015

What caused the Civil War? Did the North care about abolishing slavery? Did the South secede because of slavery? Or was it about something else entirely…perhaps states’ rights? Colonel Ty Seidule, Professor of History at the United States Military Academy at West Point, settles the debate.

Without Abrabam Lincoln‘s and his supporters’ opposition to the slaveowners of American southern states like North Carolina in the 1850s and 1860s, there would not be the Republican party in the USA today.

And without the 1960s ‘southern strategy’ of Republican presidential candidates Goldwater and Nixon, the present day apologists of these slaveowners would not be Republican politicians in states like North Carolina now.

GOP Lawmaker Compares ‘Tyrant’ Abraham Lincoln To Adolf Hitler

The North Carolina state representative also called the Civil War “unnecessary and unconstitutional.”

A Republican member of North Carolina’s House of Representatives on Wednesday compared President Abraham Lincoln to Adolf Hitler and called the 16th president of the U.S. a “tyrant.”

Larry Pittman also blamed Lincoln for the U.S. Civil War, which he called “unnecessary and unconstitutional.”

The remarks appeared in the comments section of a Facebook post Pittman wrote last month. Pittman began arguing with commenters on a number of issues, including his support for a law to make the Supreme Court ruling that legalized marriage equalitynull and void” in North Carolina. …

The comments drew swift rebuke, first within Pittman’s Facebook page and then well beyond.

“When American ultra-conservatives have come to believe beloved Abraham Lincoln is equivalent to Hitler, their politics have jumped the shark and gone from eye-rolling to dangerous for our democratic republic,” North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin wrote on his on Facebook page.

Pittman has made national news before, for cracking birther jokes about President Barack Obama and calling Planned Parenthoodmurder for hire.”

His Lincoln comments came just one day after White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed Hitler never used chemical weapons, a comment he later apologized for making.

Pittman has not yet addressed his own Hitler comments.

United States far-rightist Yiannopoulos advocates paedophilia

Yiannopoulos denies ‘defending paedophilia’ as shocking tapes emerge

20th February 2017, 12:24 PM

Far-right figurehead Milo Yiannopoulos is under fire after clips emerged of him allegedly defending men who have sex with underage boys.

Yiannopoulos has built a large following as a Donald Trump supporter, and is set to speak alongside senior Republicans at the upcoming CPAC [Conservative Political Action Conference] conference – which will be attended by Vice President Mike Pence, Trump advisor Steve Bannon, White House chief Reince Priebus and Senator Ted Cruz, among others.

The far-right figure and internet troll is already deeply controversial, previously claiming he would ‘cure’ himself of being gay if he coulddescribing trans people as “mentally ill gay men dressing up for attention”, and using a university lecture to single out and bully a transgender student on-stage.

Top conservatives are now facing questions about their ties to Yiannopoulos, however, after clips surfaced in which he appeared to defend sex with underage boys.

In one video reported by Uproxx, taken from an old livestream interview with the internet figure, Yiannopoulos attacks the age of consent as an “arbitrary one-size-fits-all policing of culture”.

He adds: “In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.”

He is also heard bragging about his sexual activity under the age of consent, defending a priest who he had sex with.

When others present protest that his comments “sound like child molestation”, Yiannopoulos insisted: “I’m grateful for Father Michael, I wouldn’t give such good head if it wasn’t for him.”

Pushed on whether he was defending child molestation, he said: “You’re misunderstanding what paedophilia means. Paedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old who is sexually mature, paedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty, who don’t have functioning sex organs yet, who are too young to be able to understand the way their bodies work. That is not what we’re talking about.”

The comments have reverberated around the political sphere, with CNN’s Jake Tapper taking to Twitter to question the plans for Yiannopoulos to speak at CPAC in light of the revelations..

He wrote: “This guy is speaking at CPAC??????

“Friend of mine, conservative, could not be more distraught by this Milo tape. Was molested as a child. Horrified.

“How on earth can CPAC defend this? Preying on children is the definition of evil. Justifying it in any way is sick and disturbing.”

Yiannopoulos responded in a Facebook post titled ‘A note for idiots’, having been previously banned from Twitter for allegedly encouraging racist abuse.

CPAC Blasted for Milo Yiannopoulos Invite After Pedophilia Remarks Resurface: here.

“The Milo Test,” wrote Charlie Sykes, a conservative former radio host who has written critically of the Republican Party since the rise of Trump. “Anti-Semitism, ok. Racism, ok. Alt Right, ok. Advocacy of pedophilia? Is THAT the bridge too far?”. Here.

SO IT WAS DEFENDING PEDOPHILIA THAT LOST MILO YIANNOPOULOS HIS BOOK DEAL AND CPAC APPEARANCE Videos emerged of Yiannopoulos appearing to condone sexual relationships between adults and 13-year-old boys. [HuffPost]

US Republican Gingrich praises Japanese Pearl Harbor attack

Newt Gingrich accused of praising Japan attackers in bizarrely timed Pearl Harbor tweets

7 December 2016

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich‘s attempt to show off his history knowledge backfired when he was slammed for praising the Japanese fighters who attacked Pearl Harbor.

Newt Gingrich Decides To Commemorate Pearl Harbor By Pointing Out Japan’s ‘Professional Brilliance’

Say what?

12/07/2016 09:15 pm ET

Newt Gingrich fired off an unusual series of tweets in commemoration of Pearl Harbor Day in which he noted Japan’s “professional brilliance” in carrying out the surprise attack.

While many marked Wednesday’s 75th anniversary by remembering the more than 2,300 U.S. servicemen killed in battle on Dec. 7, 1941, Gingrich took a different approach.

Apparently, as a sop to right-wing Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose government whitewashes World War II crimes, visiting Pearl Harbor. Apparently, according to Gingrich, having Abe as an ally against China and others is worth some whitewashing of history.

Like Australian right-wing Prime Minister Tony Abbott praised the Japanese World War II violent attack on Sydney. And like Abbott helped reviving the notorious Japanese Kempeitai secret police.

Donald Trump on Smiling Protester: ‘I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face’, during Nevada Speech

23 February 2016

After a protester interrupted a Donald Trump speech in Nevada, the presidential candidate told the crowd that he wished he could punch him in the face, and that he yearned for “the old days” when he’d leave in a stretcher.

“I love the old days, you know. You know what I hate?” Trump said as the protester was led away. “There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches, we’re not allowed to punch back anymore.”

“I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out in a stretcher, folks,” he said to applause.

“Here is a guy, throwing punches, nasty as hell, screaming at everything else when we are talking, and we are not allowed — the guards are very gentle with him. He’s walking out, big high fives, smiling, laughing. I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya,” Trump said.

Republican Elector Vows To Vote Against Donald Trump

“I owe no debt to a party. I owe a debt to my children to leave them a nation they can trust,” he wrote.

12/05/2016 09:30 pm ET | Updated 7 hours ago

A Republican member of the Electoral College from Texas has promised to vote against Donald Trump during the college’s meeting Dec. 19, saying the president-elect “shows daily he is not qualified for office.”

In an op-ed published Monday in The New York TimesChristopher Suprun, a paramedic and first responder to the Pentagon on Sept. 11, laid out a lengthy list of concerns about Trump. He called on fellow electors to “do their job” and unify around an “honorable and qualified” alternative such as Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.

The Federalist Papers, Suprun wrote, argue that the Electoral College is tasked with ensuring candidates are “qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence.” Trump, he said, does not meet these standards, and should therefore be rejected from the White House.

“Mr. Trump,” Suprun wrote, “lacks the foreign policy experience and demeanor needed to be commander in chief … Mr. Trump urged violence against protesters at his rallies during the campaign. He speaks of retribution against his critics.”

Suprun added that he has “poured countless hours” into serving his party, and will continue to do so. “But I owe no debt to a party,” he wrote. “I owe a debt to my children to leave them a nation they can trust.”

With his promise, Suprun becomes the Republican party’s first potential “faithless elector” this presidential election, The Guardian reports.

In a speech to a military audience in Florida, the US president twice cited the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal as a warning to the incoming administration of Donald Trump: here.
