Sound off for Feb. 16, 2014

At the Fairfield-Suisun school board meeting Thursday, government watchdog George Guynn Jr. suggested we need a holiday to honor John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln, saying “Lincoln is probably the worst example of a president we ever had.”

Here are some comments on that article from our website:

  • Wow, enough tea already. Put the pot down and give it a rest. We exist as a nation today because of this man’s courage to step beyond the bounds for a while. Pick your favorite founding father and ask him what he would have done to save our nation. I know you think you have that ability. What would your country look like today if Lincoln had been meek?
  • I’m reading “Lincoln Unmasked.” George is so right on this. Lincoln’s objective was to further the Hamiltonian cause to destroy any vestige of the Constitution that held protections for the individual states and the people . . . and he accomplished it with a great loss of American lives. And don’t think that Lincoln was all about ending slavery . . . he wasn’t. Today we would call him a racist of the highest order!
  • I have an actual history degree, but if I’m not wasting my time reading a (book that contains a) nut job’s vendetta against Lincoln, I’m uninformed? Fantastic.
