Twitter posters were up in arms after a follower posted a picture of a building affiliated with Northeastern Illinois University that includes a plaque honoring the nation’s 16th president — as a Democrat.

The Jacob Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies of Northeastern Illinois University has this plaque on its exterior, the news aggregation site Weazel Zippers found: “This building is dedicated to public service honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln Democrat.”

Mr. Lincoln, of course, was not. And Twitter posters were quick to point out the error.

“Shows you how uneducated the Dems/Libs are. Lincoln started the Republican Party,” one wrote.

Another wrote: “Lincoln a DEM???”



And in reply to that poster, another wrote: “No but these DEMs aren’t that bright. He was actually from the Whig Party then Republican.”
