The Lincoln Factor, Part II
See Identity & Role and Credentials  

President Lincoln finally came to understand that if the Union was to survive, it must do so within the authority of the Declaration of Independence which would appease or turn back the anger of GOD, the Central Figure thereof, from destroying it. This was the crux of his Second Inaugural Address, saying...

·        “One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it.

·        These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war."

In fact, some historians consider the Emancipation Proclamation to be either the Second Declaration of Independence or the Part II of the same, as it rectified the hypocritical practice of professing “All men are created equal”, yet, this new “nation of immigrants” was holding human beings a living property (animal live stock), and claiming “inalienable rights” from England, while denying their fellows of them.


This is what the greatest civilian citizens means when he says, "...for many of our white brothers...have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom."

Enter The Ironic, Mister Patriot
Herein lays the ironic essence of Mister Patriot, which causes all Americans to be initially shocked with either patriotic inspiration and gratitude, or anger and ridicule, that a descendant of the chattel slaves and a last generation Jim Crow survivor, would have the audacity or foolishness to personify the US federal government icon of the Uncle Sam legacy.

Indeed, there are, and will be the few who view this particular, unique personification of the United States federal government as twisted mockery, foolish ridicule or even cause madness.


However, the majority of the American peoples will find it a pleasantness of irony, which actually has basis in historical fact and federal legislation.


From the beginnings of this nation of immigrants and chattel slaves, all the iconic symbols of patriotism and Americana have been images of American who are of immigration heritage, ranging from * Brother Jonathan to Uncle Sam in its evolutions. 


Even the imagery of Columbia, reflects the same heritage of immigrants in their physical features.

·        "Brother Jonathan" - Please google Brother Jonathan.


Now, for the first time in US history, a non-immigrant is assuming the serious, real and living role of Uncle Sam in the personification of Mister Patriot.


Concomitantly, while the Uncle Sam of tradition was/is a cartoon figure, Mister Patriot is an actual, living human being, but happens to be a descendant of the chattel slaves, etc, thereby making it the firs

“Black Uncle Sam” who is now an actual living person.
