The Prophetic Margaret Sanger
Catholic Exchange ^ | 1/2/2014 | Dr. Paul Kengor

The Prophetic Margaret Sanger Dr. Paul Kengor

President Obama has awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to feminist icon Gloria Steinem. Steinem, in turn, said she hopes Obama’s action “honor[s] the work of Margaret Sanger,” liberalism’s iconic racial eugenicist.

It indeed has.

Margaret Sanger longed for a time when birth control would be (as she put it) “part of the regular welfare service of the government.” In this, she was inspired by Stalin’s Soviet Union—literally. In 1934, she undertook a hope-filled, fact-finding pilgrimage to Moscow. She was greatly impressed.

Upon her return, Sanger glowingly reported that “there are no obstacles to birth control in Russia. It is accepted … on the grounds of health and human right.” She said of America: “[W]e could well take example from Russia, where there are no legal restrictions, no religious condemnation, and where birth control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government.”

But there was more to Margaret Sanger’s vision. She wanted to advance what she called “race improvement.” She lamented America’s “race of degenerates.” This meant purging the landscape of its “human weeds.” This included a “Negro Project” especially close to Sanger’s heart.

Not surprisingly, among those most impressed with Sanger’s work was the KKK. The Klan invited the progressive heroine to one of their celebrations. She accepted. Margaret Sanger addressed her hooded brethren at a KKK rally in Silver Lake, New Jersey in 1926.

Today, Sanger’s Planned Parenthood is America’s most prolific killer of black Americans.

And now, in 2013, America’s first black president honors Gloria Steinem with an award that Steinem says honors Margaret Sanger.

The Devil works in mysterious ways.

Maybe you intend sarcasm, I trust.

Liberals are still human, and murder is murder.

Certain obnoxious evil groups can only grow by recruiting with lies.This obviously goes for abortionists.

OK, I see here in your first post:

“From a strategic viewpoint, keep abortions legal, more clinics in liberal neighborhoods.”

You’re pointing out the strategic advantage of keeping abortion legal, not necessarily that you promote it.

> The baby murdered in an abortion will not be an innocent baby. He or she will grow up in a liberal single mom household and taught to vote Dem and take from the haves (ala you and me). Wars are won by doing what is strategically necessary.

Man, that's one harsh point of view.

Those babies are innocent until proven guilty. I was raised in a virulently liberal Democrat household, but no way in hell am I a liberal Democrat today, though my Dad was until the day he died, and my Mom still is. I have stopped discussing politics with her, it only upsets both of us.

Don't condemn the innocent to murder. Figure out some better way to win that war.

The strategic killing done in warfare is supposed to be restricted to military combatants, not civilians, and certainly not babies. I think (I hope!) Fee is making a point by using outrageous examples and descriptions.

Abortion should never be used as a weapon of war, same as napalm on children. It's just evil, and bargaining with the Devil to win a war is not a good long-term strategy.

IIRC, one of the main Douchebagger operatives for Gore in the 2000 recount was a Sanger blood descendant. Don’t recall his name.

The Devil works in mysterious ways.

This might provide some insight ..

“Everybody is vulnerable to the work of Satan” and that “the devil loves to take over those who hold political office.”

I concur absolutely. I like to believe Fee was noting the irony of the statistics.

Old Chinese military adage. If the enemy adopts a policy that harms their strengths and numbers, let them. Majority of out of birth mothers already adopted a licentious way of life. Their kids will be raised the same way. Most will vote Democrat and Progressive. Why increase their numbers. Nice thing about abortions, it is not forced upon Conservative women, but Democrats are willing to embrace it. From a strategic viewpoint, keep abortions legal, more clinics in liberal neighborhoods. You want to win wars, one must be inscrutable. Fight by Queensbury rules you will lose.

This LEAPED out at me: they are killing their own and are aborting their own future. Their price to pay will be extinction. I wonder if they figured that out yet.

Politics indeed makes for strange bedfellows. My brother is a Pro Life lobbyist and, at times, gets support from a Pro-Life Lesbian group. They are anti-abortion given that they cannot procreate outside of their chosen lifestyle without breaking that choice they would rather adopt and knowing that all these babies are being killed each day and that they can’t have one really annoys them!

That was a good read. It came to mind too that one of the reasons why Priests (especially exorcists) are better off being single is that the Devil cannot get at them through their family.

I have been involved, only in a small way, with leadership and demonic stuff and yes the devil is always looking at ways of getting back at you and the easiest way is through your kids. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should or if you do then you should have a mentor, such as this Priest, that leads you through it . This stuff takes a lot more wisdom than can be gained at a few weekend conferences!

I grew up in Brownsville and East New York. Brooklyn the neighborhood of the first Sanger store front.

Demographics-wise, Brownsville is predominantly African American and West Indian. The 2000 Census shows less than 1% of the population of Brooklyn Community District 16 (which includes Brownsville and Ocean Hill) identifying themselves as white non-Hispanic.

Brownsville extends from Ralph Avenue to Junius Street, between Liberty and Hegeman Avenues. With more than two hundred thousand people dwelling in its 2.19 square miles, it is the most densely populated district in Brooklyn. The population is predominantly Jewish.

• 34.3% (37.2%) are Black or African-American

Area was ripe for Sanger’s murders of Jews and Blacks.

The demographics have always been that way especially during the depression

Abortion is one of the weapons to keep Dem voting population down.

That's one of the most cold-blooded things I've ever read on Free Republic.

The same thing can be achieved without promoting abortion. First, put an end to a welfare system that rewards people for having more children. Once you create a financial disincentive to have more children, you'll be amazed how many fewer poor women will become pregnant to begin with.

Second, deport illegal immigrants and their children, and place severe restrictions on who can enter this country from the third world.

Do these two things and the demographic base of the "Progressive" pyramid crumbles. There simply aren't enough starry-eyed college students and aging hippies out there for Democrats to win elections without a growing ghetto caste of dependents.
