'Unite the Right 2' Speaker Is Disbarred Ex-Lawyer Accused of Running Foreclosure Scam

Before he started defending Confederate monuments, Charles Edward Lincoln III was an attorney with a checkered past who was once busted by the FBI.

One of the keynote speakers at this month’s “Unite the Right 2” rally in Washington, D.C. was a Confederate apologist named Charles Edward Lincoln III. While he was presented as a “civil-rights activist from New Orleans,” it wasn’t mentioned that he is, in fact, a disbarred ex-lawyer who has a history of criminal convictions, including a felony conviction for using a false Social Security number, and a long list of complaints against him by clients for alleged scams.

At the far-right event, Lincoln ranted that America’s modern ills, including mass incarceration, can be traced back to the Confederacy’s defeat in the Civil War.

“We live in one of the most repressive—I mean, there’s still North Korea, there’s still Saudi Arabia—but we live in one of the most repressive and controlled anti-freedom countries in the entire world today. It’s worth comparing, it’s worth thinking about the comparison, which country was freer: the United States in 1860, or the United States today? Today, we imprison a larger population than existed in the United States when the Constitution was adopted.”

“The transformation took place with the immediate post-war amendments to the Constitution,” Lincoln said, pointing to the amendments that outlawed slavery, granted equal protection under law for all persons, and prohibited racial discrimination in voting.

2. Oh, it's Charles!! I watched him speak at his rally!! He was incoherent, rambling and hyper-

boring, and then someone below him in front of the stage yelled “SHUT UP!” and Charles ended his “speech” by saying, “I’ve been told to shut up!”, so he did.

Whasssupp, Charles Lincoln III?!?

5. He is right.

 

Much of America's ills today are caused by the South not integrating its schools and not treating Blacks as humans at the end of the Civil War. My racist neighbor blames Whites for most of the problems. Since I know many of his friends, I don't think he knows what racist means.

If so they should demand a refund!

7. Actually slept with Orly Taitz!


Oh yes he did....

https://www.browardpalmbeach.com/news/orly-taitz-at-the-head-of-the-birther-movement-has-her-love-life-displayed-in-court-6334235

"Isn't it true that you had relations, sexual relations, in your dental office with [Lincoln] on November 3, 2009?" Berg asked Taitz at one point. Taitz didn't answer; Snow — for neither the first nor the last time — told Berg that the question wasn't relevant.

Taitz and Lincoln do have a history. "It was a professional relationship to start out with," Lincoln said on the witness stand. "But frankly, I fell in love with her, and we did have a romance."

That revelation shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been paying close attention to Taitz's travails. In October, Lucas Smith — a felon who had supplied Taitz with what was purported to be Obama's Kenyan birth certificate and who later had a falling-out with Taitz — published an "affidavit" that, among other things, quoted Lincoln as confiding that Taitz was "hotter, hornier, wetter, tighter, more of a nympho than I've ever met." In December 2009, Lincoln himself posted on his blog a letter he had sent to Taitz in which he said Taitz, who is married, had wanted Lincoln to live in San Clemente as her "boy toy."

"I'll bet you didn't tell [your husband] what we did on your dentists' chairs, or if you did, I'll bet you didn't describe it in much detail," the letter read.

8. "Today, we imprison a larger population than existed in the United States when the Constitution ...

was created." A fact of absolutely no significance what so fucking ever. People are going to pay for to listen to that crap????

I can do it, too. There are more guns on the street today than there were in 1776. More planes crashed last year than there flights in the entire 19th century. More books were published last year than were published in the entire 1860's.

There was more freedom in 1860 than today? Ask the 3,950,343 slaves the first US Census counted in 1860 how much freedom they had. Ask poor whites how lack of property and how poll taxes kept them from voting. Ask so called free women how it felt not having the vote or access to income or the right to own property.
