Tom DiLorenzo Exposes "The Real Lincoln" During Interview With Marc Clair

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes in Thomas DiLorenzo, author of “The Real Lincoln” and “Lincoln Unmasked.” Mr. DiLorenzo explains why he first became interested in debunking much of the mythology of Abraham Lincoln, addresses many of the commonly held beliefs about his Presidency, and details his many crimes in the prosecution of the Civil War. As usual, Marc wraps it all up with one of his classic rants!

Remember, you can listen to a live stream every Friday night at 7PM EST on Daily Paul Radio!

Good episode

It inspired me to read Lincolns first inaugural address. Makes me wonder why the judge didn't just quote the things Lincoln said.

Don't stop there.

Read Jefferson Davis' inaugural address as well. Then compare the Confederate Constitution with the U.S. Constitution with regard to taxation and internal improvements.
The Judge could have quoted facts and Lincoln all day long, but it would not have helped. The Comedy Central crew would have just contradicted him or edited the segment to make him look bad.
If the show gets people to educate themselves on the real issues that led to the war, it is for the good.
The hatred between Massachusetts and Virginia goes back to the English Civil War. There was a cultural animosity that motivated the Yankee New Englander abolitionists to end slavery generations later, not as a way to aid slaves so much as a way to hurt Southerners.
The key to understanding the U.S. war is the South controlled the federal government until 1860. After that it did not and there was little prospect of it ever regaining control. That is what motivated secession.
After 1861, the North was powerful enough to pass its agenda of taxing the South out of international trade in cotton, and thereby destroying its economy. To prevent that, the first seven states seceded. To prevent them from escaping, Lincoln went to war.
Beyond the destruction of the war, the new federal tariffs kept the South impoverished for decades to come.
