Planned Parenthood: The next relic from our racist past that must be purged

Deace, Steve (syndicated radio host)In both word and deed, there has never been a more successful racist in America than Margaret Sanger and the Planned Parenthood she gave birth to. Her group's systematic extermination of black America isn't some random coincidence, but rather a well-coordinated plot.

While we're busy exhuming the remains of Nathan Bedford Forrest in a progressive effort to purge our politically correct culture from all vestiges of its past racism, I'd like to humbly suggest the next target for cultural cleansing.

I'm sure it's just an oversight by our friends on the Left that this particular target was overlooked for their hit-list. That's despite the fact it's arguably the most viciously racist of them all. So many racists, so little time I always say. Still, I'm obviously infected with white privilege (that has never actually given me anything), and even I can see this is the next relic from our racist past that must be purged.

I'm speaking of Planned Parenthood.

Since 1973, Planned Parenthood has helped execute 13 million black babies before they were born. That's more than 20 times the total number of Union soldiers the racist Confederate army killed, wounded or captured during the entire Civil War. If the carcasses of all the black babies Planned Parenthood has killed and dismembered were its own state, it would be the 5th-most populous state in the nation.

That, my dear comrades, is a lot of dead babies.

And this systematic extermination of black America isn't some random coincidence, but rather a well-coordinated plot that dates back to the death merchant's original founder.

It's been suggested that if we're going to replace Founding Father Alexander Hamilton's likeness on our currency with that of an influential woman, why not go with Margaret Sanger? It is doubtful any American woman has peddled more influence than she. After all, she did initiate a genocide and many men can't even claim that. But in the name of gender equity we must wonder if she was paid the same as her male mass murderer counterparts? Feminists everywhere are dying to know.

Don't just take my word for it, though. Sanger left behind a documented legacy of racist screeds. Long before Democrats got a former grand wizard of the KKK named Robert Byrd elected to the U.S. Senate, Sanger proudly proclaimed the following:

"(We) are seeking to assist the white race toward the elimination of the unfit (blacks)." (Birth Control and Racial Betterment, 1919) 

"Birth Control to create a (white) race of thoroughbreds!" (Subhead to Sanger's magazine The Birth Control Review)

"We are paying for and submitting to an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings (blacks) who never should have been born at all. That our wealth is being diverted from the progress of human civilization … Our eyes should be opened to the terrific cost to the community of this dead weight of (black) human waste." (The Pivot of Civilization, 1922)

"Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks – those human weeds (blacks) which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization." (New York Times interview, 1923)

"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan … I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses … I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak … In the end, through simple illustrations (explaining the problems with inferior races), I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, 1938)

Sanger established her first full-service "clinic" in Harlem in 1929. Why Harlem? Because, silly, that's where a lot of the black people she often referred to as "human weeds" lived. Sanger described it as "an experimental clinic established for the benefit of the colored people." In this case, she defined "benefit" as the overall reduction of the black population.

This was all the result of a plan Sanger laid out in an essay titled "We Must Breed a Race of Thoroughbreds," in which she argued her "clinics" should be established to "breed out of the race the scourges of transmissible disease, mental defect, poverty, lawlessness, and crime since these classes (e.g. blacks) would be decreasing in number instead of breeding like weeds."

During a 1924 radio interview in Syracuse, New York, Sanger actually said this on the air: "A farmer would rather produce a thousand thoroughbreds than a million runts. How are we to breed a race of human thoroughbreds unless we follow the same plan? We must make this country into a garden of children instead of a disorderly back lot overrun with human weeds (blacks)."

This was the core of Sanger's soul-less message and the justification for spawning the Planned Parenthood that is so prevalent today. Its precursor was called "The Negro Project," a racially motivated population control plan she launched in 1939 thanks to the help of several wealthy progressive benefactors, including Clarence Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame.

Here's how Sanger described her wretched plot in a letter to Gamble:

"It seems to me from my experience that while the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table – which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubts. We would hire three or four black ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds and engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to their population is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it should occur to their more rebellious members."

In both word and deed, there has never been a more successful racist in America than Sanger and the Planned Parenthood she gave birth to. Together they have killed more black Americans than all the Confederate flags combined. Even more than the Dukes of Hazzard, if you can believe that.

And they keep on gruesomely killing and dismembering them to this very day – upwards of 1,800 black babies every day of the week according to some estimates. And almost 80 percent of the so-called "clinics" are located in minority neighborhoods. Just as Sanger intended all along.

Sanger and Planned Parenthood should be purged, just as they've tried to purge an entire race for decades. I'd suggest exhuming her remains as well, but given the extremely warm place where she's likely spending eternity it may not be worth the added expense.
