This petition had 95 supporters

Abe Lincoln like Jefferson Davis was born in KY. Some Historians are not too sure if Abe was born in KY. Abe Lincoln like Jefferson Davis left KY for a better life elsewhere. Lincoln was between 3 to 7 yrs old when his family moved to Indiana. The Davis Family moved from Kentucky when Jefferson was between two to five years old. Davis went on to serve his nation in the Mexican War as well as Sec of War  and as a US Senator. Abe Lincoln served as an Illinois militia man. 

As the country was heading toward a war. Jefferson Davis did his best to keep the union together. Abe Lincoln invaded the southern states to enforce a 40% taxation. Kentucky as a sovereign state declared her neutrality but it was breached and Abe Lincoln invaded KY. He through his General. US Grant expelled all the Jewish people from Paducah KY 

Lincoln made the following  remarks on 18 September 1858.  They came at the beginning of his opening speech at the fourth of seven famous debates with Stephen Douglas, during Lincoln’s unsuccessful campaign for the U.S. Senate in Illinois. Lincoln had been under attack from Democrats who accused him of supporting racial equality, and his comments were a defense against those allegations. ....

During his famous debates with Sen. Stephen Douglas, Lincoln explained to the crowd: “I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races … I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”


Lincoln was a white supremacist. (Original Link  )

And Finally Lincoln was not a Republican in 1864 nor 1865 when he was killed, He left the GOP in 1864 to form a third party to win reelection.

Kentucky Voted against Lincoln in 1860 and in 1864.

Lincoln IS NOT a SON of KY, He did not grow up in KY, nor has KY ideals,  nor should we honor him as such.

Just as the Paducah Sun disowns Gen Loyd Tilghman as he wasn't born in KY nor from Paducah and it is ok to disown Tilghman. I am using the same logic, Lincoln may not have been born here, he wasn't from KY, He invaded KY and murdered many of our sons and daughters, He Expelled the Jewish people and hated the Black folks. His antisemitism and racist ideas should not be HONORED by the fine folks of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
