Another post by Al Mackey, this time he tells a bit of the truth. let’s just take a look at one of his outstanding paragraphs where he shares some truth.
“One side committed treason against the United States and fought to establish a nation based on the perpetuation of slavery and white supremacy. The other side fought to preserve the Union under the United States Constitution and also, in the second half of the war, to destroy slavery. One sides victory would mean the dissolution of the Union and possibly the destruction of the United States by establishing the precedent that a state could secede because it didn’t like the results of a free, fair, legal, constitutional election. The other side fought to maintain the nation intact and to keep it safe. The victory of one side would mean the continuation of slavery for as long as they could possibly keep it going. The victory of the United States meant the destruction of slavery and led to amendments making African-Americans citizens of the United States and saying they could not be prohibited from voting on the basis of their race.”
Now let me break this down a bit more a challenge Mackey to prove his points. I do know that he won’t or can’t but let me give it a shot anyway.
!. Mackey prove treason. We don’t want your ignorant biased opinion, show us the actual section of the constitution that states treason is leaving the US.
2. Prove the war was all about “perpetuation of slavery and white supremacy.” I’ll bet you can’t
3. Wasn’t slavery LEGAL under the US Constitution? I think so. Destroy slavery?? nope, West Virginia was allowed into the Union as a slave state. The Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in the “rebelling areas.” Read the EP Mackey, I am sure you know where to find it.
4. Not one Confederate state was trying to destroy the united States. All left in a peaceful manner and was attacked by Lincoln’s armies. In fact. it is true that the United States destroyed another country. Isn’t that right Mackey?
%. So Mackey the war was over voting rights? I think not. Didn’t the war also insure the slaves could now move into Ohio and Illinois where the Black Codes kept them from living didn’t it also mean that Blacks could now move into the territories where Lincoln so disparately wanted to keep them out???
6. Oh and by the way Mackey, wasn’t it the United States Army that attacked women, children and old men in the Confederate States? wasn’t it this same Union Army that destroyed, and stole everything of value in front of them? Wasn’t it this same greet moral army you speak of who committed countless atrocities against Confederate Prisoners of War.
Mackey you know you are not telling the truth. Do you have the backbone to face me in a online debate. I doubt it. But you are right about one thing–
There Is No Moral Equivalence Between the Confederacy and the United States
