These men sacrificed their lives to save America.
Give me one reason why what they did was bad.
>These men sacrificed their lives to keep slaves
Anyways just look at the end result, US was unquestionably the scientific and economic powerhouse of the 20th century and still remains as the foremost superpower today.
They died for states rights. Also we would be better off if the Southerners had been allowed to go through with their original plan of gradual emancipation rather than the retarded moralistic bullshit we got with the Yankee autocracy.
>institute a quasi-aristocratic economic/social system
>unilaterally chimp out to preserve this system when democracy doesn't go your way
>get your shit pushed in
>"we dindu nuffin muh northern aggreshun"
Also, the race issue in America is just about entirely the South's fault.
There was also a push to educate and economically reimburse the freed slaves, which would've gone much further towards closing the racial-economic gap, but of course, we couldn't hurt the South's delicate fee-fees, so we got another 100 years of actively discouraging blacks from assimilating and succeeding.
"The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his."
Their sacrifice was in vain. And thank God, because now a person cannot legally OWN another person. Do you not understand how obscene slavery is? You can hate niggers, and wish they'd go away, or back to Africa, or whatever... but to believe that a person should be able to own another person is edgy to the max and probably not very well thought out.
Why are mapleniggers so EDGY?
It's like every single Canadian flag is a 13yo with a single mom whose school-appointed therapist just doesn't get him
Read Jefferson Davis's writings rather than some Yankee drivel written by extremist abolitionists or SJWs. The real historical South and it's thinkers were miles from what they are portrayed as now.
inb4 muh Alexander Stephens speech
He was in the minority and a redneck rabble rouser
This is your daily reminder that Lincoln wanted to send the slaves BACK TO AFRICA and you inbred hicks assassinated him before it could be implemented.
That's right, every racist problem you faggots have is 100% your own faults. Fuck off back to your trailer Cletus.
lost the war LMAOing at you life familia
>Southerners had been allowed to go through with their original plan of gradual emancipation
Oh god, you told you this bullshit?
There were portions of Southern Aristocracy that literally wanted to expand slavery throughout the Americas
The only "states rights" they died for was the right to own people as slaves, and only because their plantation economy relied on it.
>Brits increase taxes
>Americans rebel and declare independence
>Americans celebrate this to this day
>North is intent on destroying the Southern economy
>South declares independence
>SOUTH IS EVIL
>mfw Yakns don't see the hypocrisy
That may be true but it's not accurate. These kinds of people you imagine are common to all rurally poor regions, even areas that weren't in the Confederacy. The appalachian areas, which were Unionist, are 10x worse than Southern flatlands.
Yes and no. It was to be expanded geographically but gradually phased out as it became economically inefficient and irrelevant. But it had worked very well for the last 50 years so there was no reason to stop it. Conditions for slaves were becoming more humane with a greater emphasis on feeding and health.
Guys STOP FIGHTING we are getting baited by a maplenigger!
The retarded giant at our doorstep! DON'T GIVE IN TO HIS AUTISTIC WAYS I BEG OF YOU
I've never met a northern who really gives a shit. They think its a joke.
If anything watching other southerns get called Yankees by foreigners is funny. To the rest of the world all Americans are Yankees.
>muh morality over economics itll work great!
It's immoral to have rice niggers in asia making your electronics for 2 cents an hour but we aren't going to suddenly start paying them a fair wage. It would be chaos, which is what universal emancipation was and it ruined the South.
We made several attempts at diplomacy with Britain.
The South literally started shooting shit up because they didn't like who we elected.
That's because Reconstruction was half-assed.
If the South had gotten a proper punishment, things would be different.
>Yankees were responsible for slavery by buying their factory made cotton shirts
Well, we did something about it.
>but gradually phased out as it became economically inefficient and irrelevant
It was already inefficient and irrelevant everywhere else but the South, which is why the Southern Aristocracy was so terrified.
Bloody Kansas was in direct response to the actions of Abolitionist.
>But it had worked very well for the last 50 years so there was no reason to stop it.
Also bullshit, the Fugitive slave act was an attempt to preserve a system that was becoming increasingly unstable. The ban of the Atlantic slave trade in 1808 was the catalyst for all these desperation measures.
Sherman didn't give a shit about niggers, he was an agent of the Federal government enforcing its tyranny over people that were too independent minded to stand for their oppression. If the American Revolution had gone differently Brits would shill for Gage or Cornwallis the same way you're shilling for that degenerate murdering looting fuck.
WHY THE FUCK DID THEY TRY AND INVADE THE NORTH? STUPID!
>people that were too independent minded to stand for their oppression
Your pleb ancestors literally fought to protect their rich masters in exchange for the insurance that there would always be a black underclass to keep them above the bottom rung of society.
Even to this day, Southern poorfags (bit redundant 2bh) are duped into voting for the party of the rich via racism (and Jaysus)
Race isn't your enemy.
Cultural difference,education, traditions and religious beliefs are.
The world is cut in such a way that these parameters change because people of the same color tend to have the same roots.
You don't need to kill everyone or enslave them, you just need to find a way of changing their ways.
Not saying this is easy since almost nowhere seems to be able to do it correctly
"The South began the war by seizing forts, arsenals, mints, custom-houses, etc., etc., long before Mr. Lincoln was installed, and before the South had one jot or tittle of provocation. I myself have seen in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi, hundreds and thousands of women and children fleeing from your armies and desperadoes, hungry and with bleeding feet. In Memphis, Vicksburg, and Mississippi, we fed thousands and thousands of the families of rebel soldiers left on our hands, and whom we could not see starve. Now that war comes to you, you feel very different. You deprecate its horrors, but did not feel them when you sent car-loads of soldiers and ammunition, and moulded shells and shot, to carry war into Kentucky and Tennessee, to desolate the homes of hundreds and thousands of good people who only asked to live in peace at their old homes"
Well, it's important to learn this now, because "South Africa" won't be around in 30 years.
I love it when Southcucks throw out the "muh Lincoln didn't want to free the slaves" argument and cite that debate.
If that was the case, then why did your ancestors chimp out in the first place?
you should share this with moodies! because our 30 year bonds are rated higher than america's.
oh but you are a nigger. maybe you should go sell some drugs so your mom can afford her next abortion.
>It makes Yankees mad
Up in NY the war is seen as a complete joke. Nobody gives a shit, if you ask the average man he will tell you that it was either:
- A war about slavery (incorrect)
- A war about the state's rights to own slaves (correct)
Would've been better to have just gradually freed the slaves over time allowing for big time farmers in the south to switch to new methods rather than just destroying their economy. Maybe the south wouldn't be such a shit hole today if that had been the case.
Can you read dipshit? I am clearly from the north, my ancestors were always here since the 1600s.
Lincoln didn't morally like slavery but saw it as sanctioned by the laws, so he just was going to let it die out.
