Jon Stewart's Lying Lincolnites

Thomas DiLorenzo

Not surprisingly, Jon Stewart ambushed Judge Napolitano last night on his “Daily Show” during the discussion on Lincoln by springing on him a game show format with THREE academic Lincoln cultists (and a black female with a Lincoln beard) to argue with him.  It has been my experience over the past dozen years that such people are, without any exceptions that I know of, liars.

LIE #1:  Last night Judge Napolitano stated the plain historical fact that the Morrill Tariff, which more than doubled the average tariff rate, was passed in the House of Representatives during the 1859-1860 session, and eventually signed into law by President Buchanan two days before Lincoln’s inauguration.  It was the cornerstone of the Republican Party platform of 1860.  This is an undeniable historical fact, but was dismissed by Stewart’s lying Lincolnites who simply said “It’s not true.”  Oh, OK.

LIE #2:  The Judge also pointed out that Lincoln sent federal marshals to apprehend runaway slaves and return them to their owners in the South.  The panel of liars chanted in unison, “It’s not true.”  Well, yes it is true.  The latest scholarship on the issue of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, which Lincoln very strongly supported in his first inaugural address, is Stanley Campbell, The Slave Catchers (University of North Carolina Press, 2011).  Campbell writes that “The Fugitive Slave Law remained in force and was executed by federal marshals” all during the Lincoln regime, just as Judge Napolitano said.

Campbell also writes this:  “In May, 1862, the Superior Court of the District of Columbia ruled that the Fugitive Slave Law was applicable to the District of Columbia as it was to any of the states.  The docket of the court for 1862 listed the claims of twenty-eight different slave owners for 101 runaway slaves.  In the two months following the court’s decision, 26 fugitive slaves were returned to their owners from the fugitive slave tribunal in the nation’s capital.”

Once again, Judge Napolitano was absolutely correct and Stewart, the “bearded” black woman, Eric Foner, and the other two Lincoln cultists were lying.

7354 Right. Not a real gameshow. Not even a real public debate. If you are anxious to point out the hypocrits in America you are pulling the proverbial pud on the wrong end of the political spectrum. All the real liars are on the right.
