Define hypocrisy.


I'm not 'insinuating' anything.
 
Lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation as a war measure to deprive the confederacy of a vital resource.
 
Slavery continued in areas not in rebellion.
 
The 13th amendment freed all the slaves.
 
Maryland and Missouri freed their slaves before the ratification of the 13th amendment.
 
'hypocrisy' is your opinion which, like personal taste, cannot be argued. Solid opinions are strongly fact-based, not just repeated in loud voices...
