The Lincoln Project: Which Side of History

The following comes from the official press release from The Lincoln Project:

July 1, 2020 – The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “Which Side of History,” released today, commends Mississippi for taking a historic step in lowering their state flag, the last to feature the Confederate emblem, and beginning the process of reconciling our country’s painful past, while lamenting President Trump for continuing to sow hate and division, this time tweeting out a video of alleged supporters in Florida yelling, “White Power!”

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project said, “This week, Mississippi chose the right side of history. Unfortunately, it’s not a choice our problematic President cares to make. It’s more important to Trump to peddle his deplorable racist agenda — stoking division, fear, and chaos — rather than to help our country heal.”

“If the last three and half years weren’t reason enough, Trump has succeeded in making it impossible for any true, patriotic Republican or Independent to support anyone but Joe Biden this November. The Lincoln Project endorses Biden, and is confident he will restore integrity and character to the office of the Presidency once again,” said Galen.

The Lincoln Project – Crowds

Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Ad. Says “Trump’s Fantasy Has Come True”

The following comes from Lincoln Project’s official press release:

June 9, 2020- Contrary to all evidence, since his inauguration, President Donald J. Trump has been lying about the size of the crowds that he says have come out to cheer him on.

Finally, this week, in cities across America, from coast to coast, and small towns in between, crowds even larger than he ever imagined possible have gathered — not to cheer Trump on — but in solidarity with one message: It’s time for him to go.

Donald Trump, the American people are speaking directly to you with a simple message: It’s time to start packing your bags.

The Lincoln Project: Steps

From YouTube description: 📺 159 years ago Abraham Lincoln asked, “Will you risk the commission of so fearful a mistake?” Today, we hope our elected leaders will listen.

The following is taken from Lincoln Project’s official press release:

June 6, 2020- The Lincoln Project has grave concerns about the Trump Administration’s response to the Americans who today choose to exercise their First Amendment rights to peacefully assemble and to petition our government in our nation’s capital.

These laws are the foundation of our Republic. And even while serving as the president of a divided nation, Abraham Lincoln held these principles above all others.

This makes Lincoln’s concerns so long ago relevant again today:“Before entering upon so grave a matter as the destruction of our national fabric…with all its benefits, its memories, and its hopes… would it not be wise to ascertain precisely why we do it?”

It is almost as if he were speaking from his grave to question our elected leaders today: “Will you risk the commission of so fearful a mistake?”

The Lincoln Project AMERICA IS A WAR ZONE

Lincoln Project – War Zone

Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Advertisement. Says America is a War Zone, Trump Adds “Kerosene to the Fire”

The following comes from the Lincoln Project’s official press release:

June 3, 2020-The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “War Zone,” released today, lays bare the state of the nation under President Donald Trump’s regime. In this moment of upheaval and unrest, our country needs real leadership.

“Donald Trump has completely failed at governing,”said George Conway, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “He’s no longer hiding that he’s a brazen authoritarian, so desiring of control and power that he’s willing to turn our once peaceful cities into war zones for his own political gain, at the direct expense of American lives.”

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said, “Donald J. Trump has no qualms about inciting violence and mayhem, from the safety of his White House bunker. In an explicit show of totalitarianism, he has taken the U.S. military and police forces and mobilized them against our own citizens. The United States must choose: America or Trump?”

No American should live in fear due to the color of their skin, their political affiliation, or their religion. Donald J. Trump has taken the side of the oppressor and the American people have made it clear they will not stand.The Lincoln Project will fight to protect all Americans and our democracy and ensure that Donald J. Trump is not re-elected come November, and Joe Biden is sworn into office come January.
