The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey was released on Monday. The results were “based on 170 usable responses from current and former members of the American Political Science Association’s presidents and executive politics section.” Leftists as well as mass media outlets have been having a field day because predictably they ranked President Trump in last place. The survey says a lot about the scientists as well as the people who celebrate the results because the president they ranked as the best was Abraham Lincoln- a racist and tyrant who`s presidency led to the death of over 700,000 Americans.
While academia has mostly tried to cover up Lincoln`s racist statements, they are pretty well known none the less. Among other things, Lincoln was quoted at a meeting with freed black ministers- “You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffers very greatly, many of them, by living among us, while ours suffers from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated.” Read more quotes here
Lincoln was also a tyrant. As quoted from President Abraham Lincoln: An American Tyrant: “Lincoln continuously circumvented the law and in many cases suspended the Constitution of the United States altogether. In doing so, Lincoln denied the rights of citizens he was sworn to protect. He suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus, closed courts by force, and arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. Lincoln also raised troops without the consent of Congress, and closed-down newspapers whose writers displayed any dissent to U.S. policy.”
It`s no surprise the radical left would place a guy like this on a pedestal. If they name a racist tyrant like Lincoln as #1, then it`s good that they place Trump last.
