Lois Lerner, a central figure in the IRS scandalous targeting of the Tea Party movement and other conservative groups, is making the headlines again. This time, however, it is for puzzling and derogatory statements that she made about Abraham Lincoln, who is considered by many to be one of the country’s greatest presidents.
In an email written by Lerner on March 6, 2014, which was disclosed on Wednesday in a bipartisan Senate report, Lerner said that Lincoln was, in her opinion, the worst president ever. Her opinion got worse from there.
Lerner said, “Look my view is that Lincoln was our worst president not our best.” Responding to a friend who disparaged the State of Texas as “pathetic”, she added, “He should [have] let the south go. We really do seem to have [two] different mind sets.”
WHOA. Democrat Lerner thinks that Lincoln, who freed 3 million slaves in designated areas of the South with the Emancipation Proclamation, is the worst president ever?
Given the fact Lerner, a hard core Democrat, was advocating for the Civil War to have never been fought and lamenting that Lincoln should have just let the south secede, the conclusion could be made that she supports slavery. If Lerner had gotten her way, blacks would still be shackled in chains by Democrats to this very day.
Also among the 1.5 million emails examined was significant proof that revealed Lerner’s history and pattern of calling conservatives “crazies” and “a–holes.”
Given the deep-seeded animosity that Lerner obviously possessed towards conservative and Tea Party groups, is it any surprise that she would use her position in regard to federal tax to harass, threaten, and intimidate them?
