What's it like trying to get a DIRECT answer from Kevin Levin ?
This picture says it all !
Trying to get a Direct answer from him is kinda like nailing Jello to a wall.
Unless it's an anti-Confederate statement.
Then it's like placing concrete.
I visited his blog the other day,
And true to form his spotlight on slavery was as bright as ever !
Typical Levin, nothing new there.
In the comments section Kevin said ---
"Ending slavery was certainly not the primary goal of the United States from the beginning to the end. The goal was preserving the Union. Slavery became a way to do that by 1863. The goal of the Confederacy from beginning to end was the preservation of slavery and white supremacy."
So that statement prompted me to ask a question --
"Wouldn’t that imply that the North was fighting for a Union
that included the preservation of slavery ?"
Well Jell-O Man did reply but indirectly, and of course had to spin his reply --
"If the war had ended before the end of 1863 it is likely that the United States would have continued as a slaveholding nation. Of course, the war continued and slavery ended with it. That is something that all of us can celebrate. If the Confederacy had proved victorious the enslavement of roughly 4 million people would have continued. We can all be thankful that it failed."
Like I said getting Levin to admit that the North was fighting for a Union that included
The Preservation of Slavery, is like nailing Jell-O to a wall !
