Absolute Idiocy!

This is such a glaring example of colossal ignorance that it makes me want to cry, so I’ll just post the story and leave you with a link and a couple pictures in lieu of commentary:

MSNBC Panelist: White People Against Abortion Because They’re Trying to Build Up The Race

(You have to watch the video clip to understand, but it’s only about a minute long)

The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Plan for Black Americans

The aim of the program was to restrict—many believe exterminate—the black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s crème de la crème—those prominent, well educated and well-to-do—into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment,elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.

The Negro Project has had lasting repercussions in the black community: “We have become victims of genocide by our own hands,” cried Hunter at the “Say So” march.

Or, if you prefer to watch rather than read (actually, not only is this video historically accurate, it is devastatingly and shockingly damning of Planned Parenthood and its founder):

  1. Ok- without watching the link I’ll gladly posit that the person was probably an idiot. MSNBC is kind of a giveaway- the “liberal” response to Fox news.

    But I will take issue with your portrayal of Sanger. Not that it is completely off base. But that it is both taken out of the historical context, and irrelevant to todays planned parenthood.

    Yes- she was a supporter of eugenics- as where countless americans- and their government. Indeed- a case can be, and has been made that the Nazis eugenic programs were heavily influenced by the US’s pioneering work in this field. Carnegie, Rockefeller, Kellogg, Harriman among others where major funders of the movement. Luminaries from Alexander Graham Bell to Luther Burbank were proponets. The Womens Christian Temperance union lobbied for eugenics. Womens groups in the south were particularly voval proponets in general.

    Many US states enacted various eugenics laws- from forced sterilization, to forbidding”undesirables” to procreate, requiring sterilization of those with low IQ’s, forced sterilizations of those convicted of crimes, etc etc.

    California led the nation with more then 20,000 forced sterilizations (a program not ended until the 60’s). North Carolina was the most aggressive, and likewise proceeded well into the late 60’s.

    And pray tell- what does this have to do with planned parenthood of today? Yes- minorities probably lead in abortions in many areas. They also lead in poverty, lack of education- and as a result of the former two- lack of access to birth control. (and of course, these numbers tend to be worst in deep red states).

    And sorry- but I have a hard time believing that someone who names their blog after something from Ayn Rand, another prominent supporter of eugenics, does not ultimately support the idea of eugenics themselves. I suppose maybe your version of “christian” beliefs might preclude overt support for it- but you’ve made it damn clear you’d be more then happy if all those undesirables just happened to die off…

  2. I tried to like this post and the computer isn’t letting me. Maybe I broke something.

    B., I should like to reblog this. Would you be willing to jump over and play? The problem is that I really need to have my nose in the script and not on the computer screen; so I miss a lot. I think I would retitle the piece “Who’s Controlling Your Vagina?……Really. Who?” I’m sorry, but I’m the most provacative conservative I know.
