150 Years Ago Today… Republicans Freed the Slaves

Another Great moment in Republican Party History.
On this day in 1863 Republicans freed the slaves.

Republicans rejoiced. Democrats cursed.
Grand Old Partisan reported:

On New Year’s Day in 1863, the Republican Party’s Emancipation Proclamation came into effect. While Republicans rejoiced, Democrat politicians and newspapers denounced President Abraham Lincoln (R-IL) for freeing slaves. Demonstrating their depravity, New York’s Gov. Horatio Seymour, who would be the 1868 Democrat presidential nominee, denounced the Emancipation Proclamation as “a proposal for the butchery of women and children.” The Louisville Daily Democrat called it “an outrage of all constitutional law, all human justice, all Christian feeling.”

    Look at the consequences now

    As soon as the blacks got the vote, the democrats manipulated them and bought them off for slave wages. In other words, most blacks are still slaves. They are and it is depairingly sad. I despise democrats for exploiting the black man’s opportunity to be freedom.

    And 100 years later Liberals started to reverse the process with welfare, foodstamps and the bigotry of low expectations. 150 years later…They have succeeded

    Oops. Wrong thread. Sigh. New Year’s Day.

    And now they’re instrumental in destroying America from within. Not sure if this is the outcome Lincoln foresaw? Expect things to get worse going forward. They have smelled victory and together with the liberals, Muslims, bitter Hispanics and other third-world immigrants with no skin in the game, America will become a shell of it’s former self.

    and the democrap party has spent the last 140 years trying to re-enslave blacks and all thier opponents.

    right after the civil war the democrap party should have been outlawed.

  • Lady Mondegreen

    That was then, this is now and things have certainly changed. I need only cite the constant racist comments on this blog. GP readers racist???? I know, I know…. Fire away, I’m logging off for the evening. Happy new year.

    A Liberal Republican ( Lincoln ) was the driving force in emancipating the slaves in this country. Moreover, the hardline Republicans of the day – and yes, some Democrats – were against this. And as anyone with even a partically functioning brainstem should easily recognize, the centrist Republican party of Lincoln’s era is NOTHING like the Republican party ( centrist or otherwise ) of today. I find it quite ironic and more than a shade pathetic that the Modern American Right excuse or deflect their actions in today’s socio-political climate by saying “oh, oh, oh, but WE freed the slaves!!!!” To quote Joe Biden…………..MALARKEY!!! For all his hyper-partisan dribblings, Hoft likely knows that this post – and a plurality of the vaccuous nonsense he vomits out into the cyber-landscape – flies in the face of well recorded history and the reality of our modern era. But, if it makes you sleep better at night to boast that the Republican party actually care about the oppressed in this country, that’s your perogative. Unfortunately, that won’t make it correct.

    I agree with several of the comments. The blacks are still slaves, but they don’t realize it. They are slaves to the Democrat party which keeps the majority of them down and “in their place” in crime infested cities, where they aren’t allowed to protect themselves (GUN CONTROL). Many millions of black babies have been murdered on abortion tables, thanks to the Democrat mentality that its “your choice”. Funny how Democrats are only “pro choice” when it comes to baby killing, but they don’t want you to have a choice to be able to protect yourself with a gun or have a choice whether or not to work for a union. Most of the major cities are run by Democrats, which has gone on for decades and nothing ever gets better for black people. Despite all this, blacks continue to vote Democrat.

    Another reason NOT to vote Republican.

    It’s more than time for the Republicans to demand that actual history be taught, not the version which keeps the blacks in victimhood. The first black slave owner, fully a slave not an indentured servant, was a black man named Anthony Johnson.
