Things Never Really Change!
On Good Friday, 1865 a few hours before President Lincoln was assassinated, the Copperhead anti – administration newspaper the “Constitutional Advocate” of Ashland, Pa. printed a story blaming President Lincoln for the “slaughter of two millions of people, and the crushing of unborn generations beneath the mountain of his debts.” In its next issue, it piously observed that “President Lincoln died just when the nation needs the parental guidance of a moderate, unassuming, unambitious man.”
This story is so funny its as though I am reading the same type of reporting that is reported by the liberal press of today.
I guess things never really change.
