150 Years Ago Today, Republicans Freed The Slaves – Liberal Media Quiet on Event

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

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.”

Where’s the media on this? LOL. Mainstream Liberal Media quiet once again. Oh well, they can’t enjoy this like republicans can!

Some Republicans may think Obama is a Muslim haven't heard any say he was a actual terrorist, Most just think his policies are destructive to the country, that is a policy debate and has nothing to do with the color of his skin. The LGTB debate is a religious issue for the republicans and some like me feel it should be left to the states or individual communities. The only Problem I have with the LGTB debate is when you see most of there rally's or demonstrations it for the most part looks like a den of debauchery which I know they are not but perception is everything. The fight for marriage as I see it is a monetary fight but there is a fix for that by working to inact one law and that is to give those with civil unions the same rights as a religious married couple, I also believe that if a state and community allow marriage it should be a churches right to perform or not perform the ceremony but that judges would be obligated by law.

Yes, congratulations on doing the right thing ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO! lol How things change!. 150 years later the very same party are treating the LGTB community like 2nd class citizens and still insist our black president is a Muslim/terrorist. Today's Republican party with it's backward thinking ethos is hardly in a position to be getting on it's high horse.

Wow. This is pretty sloppy thinking of you, isn't it? First you throw in a couple things that have nothing to do with the article. Next you ignore the thoughts of the majority of the Republican party and smear them by attributing the thoughts of a few to the entire group. Finally, you call them backward thinking when it's the liberals who are trapped in some endless baby-boomer nightmare and living on issues that were tired even back during the Clinton era when he created don't-ask-don't tell. What you don't mention is the outrageous hypocrisy of so many in the Democratic party, including the president. He opposed gay marriage long after Republican leaders, such as a former VP endorsed it. He has a terrible record on employing women and childlishly flips them off or calls them demeaning names ('sweetie'). The current VP is incredibly racist (towards Indian small business men and towards those he threated with straw men "chains).
