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
