DiLorenzo on the New Lincoln Movie

14th November 2012      by: Tom Woods     

Tom DiLorenzo, author of The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked, will be speaking in Orlando this Saturday afternoon on the Hollywood Lincoln vs. the real thing. The event will be live-streamed for people who can’t be in attendance, and archived for later viewing as well. For details, click here.

Unlearn the Propaganda!

    Can’t wait to hear DiLorenzo’s take on the movie. As for the movie itself – I’d personally rather watch “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” It’s probably more historically accurate.

    Saw the trailer during the rare event of going to the movies and I instantly became agitated and irate. My girl had to keep me from blurting out “unpopular” comments during this statist indoctrination advertisement.
    The timing is also interesting as its release happens at a time when the principle of secession is taking on a popular notice. Will Obama become the next Lincoln?
    I think not. More like a Stalin or Hitler style to me, as secession is not a political discussion in our form of statism (unlike prior to mid-nineteenth century).

    The secession petitions are merely a PR stunt by the promoters of the new Lincoln movie. ;)

    Heh, yeah. In all honesty I don’t know if I could stomach a sycophantic movie about a tyrannical dictator. I’d probably be throwing up my popcorn on the poor movie goers in front of me.

    It’s too bad because Daniel Day-Lewis is such an incredible actor.

  • Jeremy

    Yeah, true. It’s such a waste of his talents. Too bad.

    I’m going to see the movie because it will be entertaining, but also so I know what I am dealing with. DiLorenzo’s books are amazing and I recommend them to all my friends.

    Today, Lincoln would be considered a war criminal. As so would Grant and Sherman!

  • Luke Sunderland

    As well they should. But, I feel I should point out, a good number of people at the time (mostly in the south, not surprisingly) felt that same way.
