Not long ago, the idea of Americans tearing down Abraham Lincoln's statue was unthinkable. Then it actually happened. And another in Portland just this week. Here's why Lincoln deserves to be remembered.

Fun Fact Abraham Lincoln was actually really racist. He did free the slaves but he also wanted to send them all to Liberia. Lincoln believed that Whites and Blacks couldn't live in the same society. Lincoln is remembered and taught incorrectly, he is debatably the most racist president. Edit: spelling error

People who are defacing statues of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln along with people like Dwight David Eisenhower Teddy Roosevelt and Winston Churchill should be shot for being traitors! Nazism is anti-American, and people who would do things like that deserve to be capped off in the head, and yes I'm a firm believer in protecting our heritage of men like Generals Ulysses S Grant and Robert E Lee as well as Admirals David G Farragut in Franklin Buchanan!

I’ve been watching this video series, and all these “statue tippers” should do their dang research FIRST before they start jumping the gun with a tear-down “revolution.” I’m APPALLED that their “freedom of speech”and “pursuit of happiness” is the destruction of America and its MANY founders who’ve done incredible work for us in history. Does everyone have skeletons in their closet, secret sins, hidden wrongs? Sure, probably why it wasn’t completely made public like what we’re doing today...but does it encompass and define their life? NO! Y’all need to STOP focusing on the mistakes of man and redirect your foolish thinking to their accomplishments for our country, yours and mine. This act of retaliation is how my four-year-old child acts when he can’t get his way...newsflash, y’all need anger management!

“I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than a dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice anything but honor for its preservation.” Robert E Lee 1861 “I, Robert E. Lee of Lexington, Virginia do solemn, in the presence of Almighty God, that I will henceforth faithfully support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, the Union of the States thereafter, and that I will, in like manner, abide by and faithful support all laws and proclamations which have been made during the existing rebellion with reference to the emancipation of slaves, so help me God.” -Robert E Lee 1865

I was undecided, and am as independent as they come, never registered with the Dems or GOO. But, I have now decided that I will be voting for Trump this 2020 election. While I respect my fellow Americans that have decided on Biden. Make no mistake, there are fundamental flaws with both candidates. It’s a matter of what issues are most important to you. Is it the economy, healthcare, social issues, judicial appointees, low taxes, foreign policy etc etc? Don’t believe what everyone tries to tell you about this election being good vs evil, by either party! If there was a legitimate chance the greens or libertarians could win, I would vote for one of those two instead, as there is much I disagree with by both parties. -From the great state of Florida! #Trump2020 #independant

I never head about Abe Challenging Christianity, i would love to know what it said and know what he was thinking. He kind of got a wake up call from God telling him to not challenge him and only after his two sons died he went back to God and the Bible. But tbh i would really would have loved to know what he wrote down, was it just the same thing people use today in trying to tell you there is "no God" ( even tho everything shows that God is real but you can not see it ) or was his paper about something different. Either way he seems to have gotten a answer to what he was asking because he went back to the Bible for the answers.

He "saved the union", no, he enslaved the states. The constitutionally protected right to secede from the union was violated with a long bloody war to enforce it. Saving the slaves was never his goal, worldwide opinion was already shifting on this issue, it would have happened soon anyways. I was taught growing up that he was an undisputed hero, I truly believed it. It wasn't until I really looked into why the war actually happened (no it wasn't slavery), that I actually saw how ignorant I was, and how tyrannical and harmful a president "honest" Abe was. Most people believe in free markets and competition to create a better deal, so imagine how much better we would be if we had more choices on what government to fall under in America. Right now there is hardly a difference between states because the federal government is so powerful. We wouldn't be on the verge of civil war 2.0 right now if we hadn't had the first civil war, started by good old Abraham Lincoln. Still, statues and history should remain, no matter your current opinions.

Names such as Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. [Among others] Is Joe Biden OK with this? Are most Americans who consider themselves 'Democrats'?

dude are u historically illiterate? The modern day democrats don't want slavery and id go as far to say the republicans wouldn't want it either. Slavery along with being just wrong, in the united states just wouldn't be profitable.The cost of buying and caring for slaves wouldn't make for the cost of actually just hiring workers and paying them cheap minimum wage. That was the main reason the north was against slavery because it was becoming unprofitable. So the democrats and republicans who both just like making profits wouldn't be for it. Instead they (the republicans and in some cases the democrats) would push for policies that would negatively affect the workers and benefit the C.E.Os (their donors.) Also the us (again both parties) don't really care about child workers in other countries, or atrocities that are still going on in these other countries.

The number of Lincoln worshipers in the comments is mind boggling. So many clearly have not studied history sufficiently. Have a read of the three Lincoln books by Thomas DiLorenzo, read the citations, and I strongly think that a reasonable person will come to a new conclusion about the man. Those who do not, suffer from cognitive dissonance.

The main problem with people liking Lincoln so much is that they end up excusing outright blatant violations of the Constitution and tyrannical actions because Lincoln did it. Everybody nowadays considers Lincoln a great Constitutional lawyer when in reality he was just a corrupt railroad lobbyist and that is it. That is why he pushed for the trans continental railroad. He was throwing billions and billions of dollars at his buddies in the railroad industry that got him elected in the first place.
