Komen fundraiser calls for Brinkerís resignation
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/9/2012 | Caroline May

Posted on 02/09/2012 6:40:14 PM PST by jeannineinsd

Well, that didn’t take long.

A major Susan G. Komen for the Cure donor has called for the breast cancer foundation to “clean house” including Komen founder and chief executive Nancy Brinker.

In a letter to friends and family, published by The UK Guardian Wednesday, Eve Ellis, who spent six years on Komen NYC’s Board and raised over $250,000 for the group, explained that she does not believe Brinker’s claims that the decision to cut grants to Planned Parenthood were not politically motivated.

Ellis wrote, in the letter sent Monday, that in order to restore her trust Komen must replace the Board, Brinker must resign, and Karen Handel, the former senior vice president for public policy must be terminated (Handel resigned Tuesday).

“A clean house would enable Komen to carry on its much-needed, admirable work without the baggage of being the organization that had actually deliberated on and subsequently made the heartless decision to defund Planned Parenthood and to endanger the heath of thousands of women,” she wrote. “When we have a clean house, we should get answers to how this happened, and a clear refocus that Komen stands for all women’s health.”

According to Ellis, Brinker cannot be trusted and that politics were definitely at play in the decision to pull funding — not just because Handel, the supposed force behind the decision — but also because of Brinker’s past ties to the Bush administration and the fact that Brinker told affiliates on Saturday that former Bush White House Press secretary Ari Fleischer would be helping Komen with “crisis communications.”

“Nancy Brinker was a George W. Bush Ambassador appointee and is a Bush family friend. Is it just coincidence that the head of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, is the daughter of that feisty progressive nemesis of the Bush family, the late Governor of Texas, Ann Richards?” she wrote.

Ellis added that while the reversal of the decision to defund Planned Parenthood was “a step in the right direction” more needs to be done and that a “clean house” is the way to restore trust.

Brinker founded Komen in 1982. Cecile Richards has been with Planned Parenthood since 2006.

I had not heard of Eve Ellis before. Apparently, in her opinion she is queen in charge of everything, and she can tell everyone what to do and she must be obeyed. She does not wish to donate to a charity that employs people of a unacceptable political party. Therefore, the charity must get rid of the unacceptable people. She, Eve Ellis, queen of everything, decrees it so.

Here is a link to the complete letter as published by the guardian

We knew this was coming. Brinker blasphemed the most sacred sacrament of the left. She had to be destroyed.

It’s ironic that Komen, which fights breast cancer, should be funding a procedure (abortion) strongly associated with causing breast cancer).

Since Nancy Brinker founded the organization in memory of her sister, I would think there might be a legal way for her to prevent them from using her sister's name if Nancy were to be forced out of the organization.

I'd love to see Komen answer by simply dropping all support for all PP, in line with their previous statement noting PP doesn't actually do any screening, but merely offers referrals.

Adding the breast-cancer link would be icing on the cake and leave them invulnerable to reproach.

Maybe other organizations would follow suite and tighten support criteria, in which case Komen would benefit by being seen as a leading example of an effective and conscious fundraiser.

'Tis amazing that Komen receives donations and turns around and donates millions of dollars to a highly profitable Planned Predator organization. Does that make sense?

I had thought that every dime they get is supposed to go to medical research to "find a cure" instead of being stuffed into the pockets of a horrible, disgusting band of baby slaughterers.

And, unfortunately, every October we get deluged with pink crap on tv, during football games, pink footballs, pink sport caps, pink ref whistles, pink lanyards, pink shoes, etc. Gets disgusting when you realize that part of their donations are going to murder unborn/newly born helpless American babies.

My suggestion is that Komen fold up and go away. They also should refund every stinking damn dime that was donated by the people who thought Komen was washing their hands of PP. You could almost think that Komen did this deliberately to increase donations.

Well, any organization that transfers donated funds to a highly successful 1/2 billion dollar organization like PP could well come up with this quickie donation scheme. Huh? PP is probably laughing all the way to the bank.

No kidding - my thoughts exactly! Nancy shouldn't let these insatiable abortionists taint her sister's good name!

The Komen Foundation should not be sending money to organizations that do nothing for breast cancer treatment. Planned Parenthood does nothing with regard to breast cancer. Komen can probably be sued for using money for other than the foundation’s stated purpose.

Nancy is getting a good dose of the evilness of these rabid abortion supporters. She should immediately man-up and disassociate herself with them.

Planned Parenthood out of the mind of out of her mind Margaret Sanger must be relegated to history.

Very disappointed in the course Komen chose to handle this. A flip of the wee birdie IMO would have been in order. I read that the news of Komen cutting off PP actually caused an increase of donations during that brief period of time.

Once again the media is not sharing the actual facts. Of course there is no way to know if all the money Planned Parenthood has received from Komen is being spent to help women receive free breast exams. It is supposed to be spent on the free exams and not abortions. Hopefully they made sure the money they gave PP was only used for free breast exams. Of course PP has initiated the murder of millions of babies since it’s inception, so hard to trust they didn’t use some of the Komen money to murder babies. An organization founded by a eugenicist, who in her writings called the “negro race”, “weeds in the human garden that needed to be eliminated”. An organization that has started in the black inner cities and killed far more black babies than white babies.

This Ellis bitch is using the opportunity to move Brinker out and make sure one of her pals gets the position. She knows she’s lying, that the decision had nothing to do with politics. The charter of The Komen Foundation clearly forbids funds being channeled to another charity under investigation, and that’s why Komen stopped sending money.

But what the media refuse to point out is the Komen had not cut a single penny from the funds set aside for free breast exams, the money PP would have received was going to be directed to other organizations and used for free breast exams.

The media made it sound like the Komen Foundation was spending less on free breast exams, they didn’t share the truth. They made it sound like Komen, who was supposed to be helping fight breast cancer, was spending less.

The MSM remains the single greatest threat to our freedom. As long as they control the messages being peddled to the sheeple, America continues its decline.

So much of Sangers writings were restricted from public view until recently, and of course the media has not shared the truth about this vile elitist... Here are some quotes from her writing on The Negro Project, launched in Harlem in 1939.

She talked about using prominent blacks to take the lead, because if white people did the blacks might think there was a plan to reduce their population. Very touching what she wrote about using ministers, because black were very religious.

“The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Here’s another gem from this women’s vile writings

“The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets. According to one writer, the rapist has just enough brain development to raise him above the animal, but like the animal, when in heat, knows no law except nature, which impels him to procreate, whatever the result”

And to think they still hand out an award every year in this monster’s honor.

That would be a shame if their good work fighting breast cancer is affected by this fiasco. They should have stayed the course and kept trying to get the word out, “We are not cutting back on the money we donate to organizations who coordinate free breast exams, we just will not be giving Planned Parenthood fund for this purpose. The money designated for PP will be going to (another charity setting up free breast exams)

Once again the an organization will not stand up to the media and call them for the misinformation they are spewing. They folded and perhaps less money will be raised by the Komen Foundation.

Planned Parenthood is almost a billion dollar corporation. Isn't is amazing that the cancellation of a chump change donation of $650K would cause them such agita?

I read that The Komen Foundation made this decision back in December, but it was Planned Parenthood who 'leaked' the information this week. I guess they needed that 6 weeks or so to line up their willing accomplices in 'outrage', so that as soon as the news broke, there would be a 'spontaneous' firestorm against Komen.

Too bad the folks at Komen didn't stand their ground and say they wouldn't bend to extortion. The millions they received just after the news broke should have clued them in to the fact that supporting PP meant that they were missing out on a whole host of supporters, but I guess they didn't want to make their liberal friends mad, thinking that the libs would stop giving. But wouldn't that say something about the libs who stopped giving money for Breast Cancer research simply because the pre-eminent foundation didn't throw some money toward their favorite abortion provider?

Why isn’t PP donating money to Komen? Ought to be a two way street. It sounds like Komen and PP are nothing more than an employment agency for rich bitches.

LOL Why doesn’t Komen just bring in the whole executive board from Planned Parenthood and make the pro-abortionists completely happy? Komen is finding out that it just got bitten by the fleas of the dog it is in bed with.

Thanks. I’m watching this closely. I’m signed up to walk this year but can’t get motivated to raise money. I had originally thought I would just train with my team but not do the big walk. 3 of those folks however have supported PP on FB so not very comfortable with it. I never was totally in it for the cause but rather because I love to walk long distances with friends. Its going to be hard to replace that. But if Nancy goes, or Sheri, then I go too. I’ll scope out Avon.

PP figured this was at cross purposes to kill babies, so they accepted the donations, did not give the data to research and voila, we have this stink now.

Thanks for the link to the other article. Chilling, to think they give a Margaret Sanger award every year to people who “advance the cause of women’s reproductive health” and it’s named after a women who we know spoke at KKK rallies and in her writings is clearly a racist.

The America left and the media white-washing the truth about this vile human being, because she helped launch birth control and eventually legalized abortions.

Amazing they gave this award to Martin Luther King in 1966, I guess he didn’t know what she really thought about “colored people” and that black leaders like Kings were pawns in the “Negro Project”, getting the black leaders and ministers to sell birth control and abortions to their people.

She finally made her way to hell Sept 6 1966. I wonder if she was alive when they handed King the award and probably laughing inside “Stupid inferior human weed, doesn’t even realize he’s helping me to control the black population by providing birth control and abortions to more blacks than whites in our offices. See I’m right they are ignorant and inferior and shouldn’t be polluting the human race.”
