    The National Park Service sought out footage of "conservative - right-wing demonstrations" to revise the video shown to visitors at the Lincoln Memorial (search) after being pressured by conservatives who complained the display implied Abraham Lincoln supported abortion, homosexuality and liberal causes.

    Park Service documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (search) show officials purchased video of President Bush, pro-gun advocates and pro-Iraq war rallies and also considered removing images of Democratic former President Clinton at the memorial.


    SO sad

    They'd better get rid of the "I Have a Dream" clips. It implies that Lincoln was black.

    Eventually, but they probably want to get the easy prey first and work towards that later.
