Red Republicans and Lincoln’s Marxists

Tenth Communist Party USA convention in Chicago, May 1938. Portraits of Lincoln, Lenin and Stalin flanked the stage, while the Party’s leader spoke.

 

The communist connections and participants in Lincoln’s War are too numerous to mention within the limited space here, so for time’s sake I will mention some of the more influential men and important connections.

After the failed socialist revolutions of 1848 which encompassed most of the European continent, many German, English, Hungarian, Bavarian, etc. atheistic socialists flocked to the United States having been banned from their homelands for treason. Ironically just about all of them wound up in the North (for a number of factors including an already strong progressive movement brought on by Transcendentalists and Unitarians) as ardent supporters of the Republican party. During the first GOP convention one of the main objectives of the Forty-Eighters was to assure that “Puritans and native born Americans” would not control the party.

The Germans, being the largest of the immigrant groups, contributed the greatest to Lincoln’s election. Frederick Engels (Marx’s brother in arms) pointed out, “had it not been for the experienced soldiers who had entered America after the European revolution — especially from Germany — the organization of the Union army would have taken still longer than it did.” The first GOP convention included 19 German -American delegates, most of whom were Forty-Eighters some of whom were personal friends of Marx and Engels. In fact, the GOP platform included protection of voting rights for foreign-born citizens and promotion of the Homestead Act under the nickname of the “Dutch” (i.e. German) planks. Lincoln valued the German vote so much that he even secretly purchased a German newspaper, the Illinois Staats Anzieger before his election. In fact, just about every, if not all, of the German communist participants were at some point journalists for German newspapers in the U.S.. It was the “default” vocation for exiled socialists.

When we turn our attention to the Non-German socialists the connection between the Republican government and socialism becomes even more clear. It is thought that Lincoln himself offered Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian leader of socialism against the Pope the position of commander of Union forces, a position Garibaldi declined upon Lincoln’s refusal to reframe the war as being “anti-slavery.”

Two of the members of John Brown’s gang were Forty-Eighters (from Bavaria and Vienna).

Frederick Hassaurek from Vienna edited a German newspaper in Cincinnati, campaigned for John Fremont (the first Republican candidate for president), and became a diplomat to Ecuador under Lincoln.

Julius Staul, a Hungarian revolutionary, became the US consul to Japan and Shanghai after serving under Fremont in the Union Army as a General. Fremont’s chief of staff was Alexander Asboth, also from Hungary. He went on to become a U.S. diplomat to Argentina. In fact, Fremont (the famous explorer, GOP presidential candidate, and general) is so connected with socialism judging from the men he surrounded himself with, most of whom are not included in this review, that it leaves little doubt that he himself was a socialist.

The commander of Fort Delaware (a notorious Union prison camp in which captured Confederates were tortured and killed) was Hungarian revolutionary Albin Francisco Schoepf.

Thomas Francis Meagher was an influential Irishmen who helped substantially in the raising and commanding New York’s Irish Brigade. He was also a journalist, lecturer, and not to mention a convicted criminal having been first deported to Australia (penal colony) by Great Britain.

Lorez Brentano, another Forty-Eighter became a senator from Illinois and served as a U.S. ambassador to Dresden.

Many of the early republican socialist leaders weren’t foreign at all. John C. Fremont was the first Republican presidential candidate, Senator John Sherman was General William T. Sherman’s brother, General Sherman himself was on a list of “approved communists”, Charles A. Dana who was according to Lincoln the “eyes of the administration” was Assistant Secretary of War and a very close friend of Marx and Engels. Horace Greeley, a committed communist, hired Dana as an editor for his paper The New York Tribune, and included Karl Marx as a columnist. If we broadened our margins to include Unitarian, Transcendentalist, and other Utopian humanists supporters of the Union we would have a very large list of influential socialists indeed.

Though the truth has been expertly hidden from 21st century Americans, as this 1910 socialist pamphlet shows, 19th and 20th century Americans were very well aware of who and what Lincoln was.

Logistic 101: Where does ISIS get it’s Guns-Global Research

Good article, but i noticed there is absolutely no mention of the criminal cabal, occupying Palestine, Holocusting the indigenous Palestinian people, being the MAMA of ISIS, treating them in their hospitals, arming them, bombing Syrian Government positions in support of ISIS.

“Want to know who controls you, ask who you are not allowed to criticize”

i on the other hand, do not depend on my writing to support myself, so they can not kill my income stream, as they can most commercial writers.

Fuck Israel!

They are the enemy of America, and have attacked the American people more than once.

America first.

Collaborators, need a fair Common Law Trial, and a fair hanging!

Get er done America!

Logistics 101: Where Does ISIS Get Its Guns?

King Philip

General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s last horse of the war (and one of his most favorite) was King Philip. King Philip gained a reputation during the war for hating yankees. During battle, he would kick, bite, and trample yankees.

King Philip came home with the general after the war and Forrest ordered that no saddle ever touch his back again. Like his owner, he never really lost his martial ardor. In August 1866, a troop of yankee cavalry passed by General Forrest’s plantation.  They had been out on an unrelated errand and rode a little out of their way to see the home of the fearsome Rebel General. They intended no harm and were more tourists than anything else. Unfortunately, King Philip was grazing in the yard and he did not know the war was over. He did what he always did when he saw bluecoats – he attacked them. The startled yankees tried to keep out of the way, but he stood up on his hind legs , snorting and trying to kick them. The Northerners tried to protect themselves. One yankee was severely kicked and threatened to kill the horse. Seeing this, Jerry, Bedford’s servant, rushed out with a pitchfork to defend King Philip. Bedford rode up at that moment and helped to restore peace.

Though he wore no saddle, the retired war horse was occasionally forced to endure the indignity of being a carriage horse. One day, while the family was visiting in Memphis, Mary, Bedfords’s wife, and some of her friends, decided to go shopping. They were having a happy day until King Philip looked up and saw a platoon of yankee recruits forming up on the sidewalk. Their uniforms were blue and that was enough for him. His ears went back, his tail went up, he snorted with hate and down the sidewalk he went, at full speed, ignoring the screaming women in the carriage. Shoppers dropped their packages and gentlemen jerked their ladies out of the path of the charging war horse, who had blood in his eyes.

The recruits heard the commotion and, seeing the rampaging and rapidly advancing horse, they broke formation and fled down alleys, ducked into doorways, and took cover under water troughs in order to escape.

In the end, King Philip stood proudly on the spot previously occupied by the ‘enemy,’ all alone except for the hysterical ladies, who were still screaming.

King Philip definitely knew how to break-up an enemy formation.

Anarchy and Voluntaryism

You’re likely aware that I’m a libertarian. But I’m actually more than a libertarian. I don’t believe in the right of the State to exist. The reason is that anything that has a monopoly of force is extremely dangerous. As Mao Tse-tung, lately one of the world’s leading experts on government, said: “The power of the state comes out of a barrel of a gun.”

There are two possible ways for people to relate to each other, either voluntarily or coercively. And the State is pure institutionalized coercion. It’s not just unnecessary, but antithetical, for a civilized society. And that’s increasingly true as technology advances. It was never moral, but at least it was possible, in oxcart days, for bureaucrats to order things around. Today it’s ridiculous.

Everything that needs doing can and will be done by the market, by entrepreneurs who fill the needs of other people for a profit. The State is a dead hand that imposes itself on society. That belief makes me, of course, an anarchist.

People have a misconception about anarchists. That they’re these violent people, running around in black capes with little round bombs. This is nonsense. Of course there are violent anarchists. There are violent dentists. There are violent Christians. Violence, however, has nothing to do with anarchism. Anarchism is simply a belief that a ruler isn’t necessary, that society organizes itself, that individuals own themselves, and the State is actually counterproductive.

It’s always been a battle between the individual and the collective. I’m on the side of the individual.

I simply don’t believe anyone has a right to initiate aggression against anyone else. Is that an unreasonable belief?

The US-ISIS Nexus in Afghanistan Becomes Hot Topic-Stratigic Culture

When the USA-ISIS prodigy thing is brought up, one thing to keep in mind.

CIA and Mossad got blind stinking drunk and stoned one night, ISIS was conceived in that orgy of drunken ass evil ass holes.

When you see American children, in uniform, invading, murdering, occupying, some country and people who have in no way attacked America, what you are seeing, is American children, being used to fight Israhell zionist wars for the Greater Israel Project.

ISIS, Israeli Secret intelligence Service, goes where Israhell sends them.

USA, who is the wimp takes orders from the zionist bitch Israel, transports ISIS where Israhell wants them.

Let me make the chain of command of ISIS plain.

Trump has his arm up ISIS ass.
Pence has his arm up Trumps ass.
Nitwityahoo has his arm up Pence’s ass.
Any questions as to who is running ISIS?
