How Does President Trump Compare to President Lincoln?
A new film coming to East Texas theaters this Friday asks an interesting question. How does President Trump compare to President Lincoln?
The film explores politically charged ideas that compare elements of the Republican and Democratic parties both in times of the Civil War and today.
The official website for the film entited, Death of a Nation, gives this overview:
Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him.
Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right "by any means necessary."
But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them?
Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left?
Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths.
Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time?
I'm not a politically active individual. I am a student of history, and a person who is interested in exploring new and different ideas. I'm not sure if I will see this film in theaters or not, but after watching the trailer I'm certainly curious.
