Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln, but actually they DO THE OPPOSITE!

 

Lincoln freed the slaves and fought the Civil War to end slavery, BUT:

  • Republicans allow their party members to bring Confederate flags to Republican Party events.
  • Republicans pass laws to prevent teaching school children about racial discrimination in U.S. history.
  • Republicans have prevented immigrants from African nations.
  • Republicans vigorously oppose efforts to reduce gun violence, even though Lincoln himself was murdered by a gun.

 

If Republicans REALLY were “the party of Lincoln, they would STRONGLY SUPPORT:

  • Black Pride
  • Black Lives Matter
  • Teaching kids about racial discrimination throughout U.S. history
  • Eliminating racial bias from local police behavior and from unjust criminal sentences
  • Making sure African Americans had health care as good as white people have
  • Vigorous efforts to end poverty throughout all of the U.S. — rural and urban areas alike

 

Etc.
