Arkansas Lawmaker Loy Mauch Defends Slavery
Here we go again with this “black folks should be glad they were captured and shipped off to America” bullshyte!
According to Huffington Post:
A Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives has a history of writing in support of slavery and the Confederacy, along with comparing Abraham Lincoln to Karl Marx. State Rep. Loy Mauch (R-Bismarck) wrote a series of letters to the editor of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, defending slavery and attacking Lincoln, the Arkansas Times reports.
The revelations about Mauch’s letters come days after it was reported that state Rep. Jon Hubbard (R-Jonesboro) wrote that slavery “may have been a blessing” in a 2010 book. The Arkansas Republican Party has condemned Hubbard’s comments, along with comments by Republican legislative candidate Charlie Fuqua, who advocated expelling Muslims from the United States.
Mauch, a first term legislator, wrote the letters starting in 2000. He has called Lincoln a “fake neurotic Northern war criminal” and said the 16th president committed “premeditated murder” on the Constitution. He called Lincoln and Civil War generals “Wehrmacht leaders” — the name for the armed forces in Nazi Germany. He also praised his ancestors for standing up to “Northern aggression” and said the Confederate flag is “a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.”
Think that’s bad, here’s what that Mauch character had to say about slavery directly in 2009:
If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?
SMH. He just looks like a racist son-of-a-b*tch.
