  • Margaret Sanger to Ku Klux Klan 81 Years Later: "Mission Accomplished!"

    Margaret Sanger Blogspot ^ | Wednesday, July 11, 2007 | DefundAbortionGuy
    I couldn't help but think of Margaret Sanger when I saw the above cartoon from Kranky's Cartoons. If Margaret Sanger were to return today to Silver Lake to speak once again at a Ku Klux Klan Rally where she spoke 81 years ago, she would certainly say "Mission Accomplished!" Her evidence would be: *In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born. *A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby. *Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent. *Twice as many African-Americans...

    The alliance with Obama, combined with the turnout of top Democrats at the filibuster rally, is yet another indicator of MoveOn's growing presence on Capitol Hill. It also shows a strong alliance with Byrd, the 87-year-old senator who has taken the lead in the Democratic effort to justify the judicial filibusters. Byrd "is fighting an attempt by Republicans to change the 200-year old rules of the Senate that would allow Republicans to ram federal judges through the Senate with no regard for what others might say," Obama wrote in the MoveOn letter. "Above all, Robert Byrd understands just how sacred...
  • Democrats and Al Sharpton: "Racist hatemongers appeal to the absolute dregs of society"

    This is an argument that our side has yet to make. While the Democrats' decision to appear at Al Sharpton's National Action Network (Black counterpart of the Klan or Aryan Nations) should obviously be repugnant to every single "[Jewish] diamond merchant," "white interloper," "Greek homo," and "N***** whore" (phrases used by Sharpton himself), and to every "bloodsucking Jew" and "cracker lover" (his entourage's terminology), we are missing a very vital point: Racists, anti-Semites, and similar hatemongers appeal primarily to the absolute dregs of the societies they claim to represent. The Democrats are appearing with Sharpton because they say he...

    This is what Ronald Reagan said and did when, in 1980, the Ku Klux Klan offered him its endorsement. [Picture of Reagan, words denouncing the Ku Klux Klan added] "I said that I have no tolerance for what the Klan represents, and would have nothing to do with any groups of that type. ...I firmly believe that there is no room for partisanship on this question.

    AUSTIN, Texas — The Civil War ended nearly 142 years ago, for most of the country anyway, but bitter battles over how zealously that war should be remembered are erupting in Austin, the Texas capital. First, rock musician Ted Nugent wore a T-shirt featuring the Confederate battle flag — a banner sometimes employed by Southern white-supremacist groups — at the Jan. 16 inaugural ball for Texas Gov. Rick Perry, prompting criticism from civil-rights groups. A few days later, the state's elected land commissioner, arguing for a more "balanced" view of history, marked Confederate Heroes Day — an official state holiday...

    GASTONIA, N.C. — Fears over illegal immigration are fueling a resurgence in membership to the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina and across the country, according to Klan officials and organizations that track hate groups. In Gaston County near Charlotte, the imperial wizard of the Mount Holly-based chapter of the Klan says membership is growing faster than he's seen since joining in the 1960s. "People are tired of this mess," said Virgil Griffin, 62. "The illegal immigrants are taking this country over."

    Jimmy Carter. Southern Democrat. Peanut Farmer. The worst ever President. Contemporary of Sen. Byrd (Grand Kleagle of the Klan who was shocked-shocked I say, to learn the KKK was a racist organization). Jimmy speaks fearfully of an all-powerful Jewish lobby, and some strange jewish ability to censor news and views they don't like world wide. He authored a book that cannot call a murdering palestinian a terrorist. Maybe Jimmy's underlying theme connects closer to Byrd than we might think. Maybe membership in the Klan was more common in 1950/60s rural southern farmers than we realized.

    Officials say Former Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard Samuel H. Bowers died today in a state penitentiary in the Mississippi Delta. He was serving a life sentence for the 1966 bombing death of civil rights leader Vernon Dahmer. The 82-year-old Bowers was convicted in August of 1998 of ordering the assassination. Dahmer, a civil rights activist had fought for black rights during Mississippi's turbulent struggle for racial equality. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Tara Booth said in news release that Bowers died at approximately 11:30 am of cardio pulmonary arrest in the Mississippi State Penitentiary Hospital in Parchman.

    It is hardly breaking news to state that Soros-funded is a hotbed of racism, Marxism, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. This story has been widely circulated and Web sites like WMD have extensive coverage of the whole debacle. The story even made The Washington Times recently, and the moderators of MoveOn’s “Action Forums” have been forced to disable the forums due to their inability to control the hate speech being posted on their site. Luckily, many of the offending quotes were saved by disgusted viewers, a selection of which, thanks to the work of W.M.D., I present below:

    About 30 Ku Klux Klan members proclaimed hatred for blacks, Jews, gays and Latinos as they stood behind barricades at the Civil War battlefield where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. Gordon Young of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan also called Saturday for the U.S. to pull its troops out of Iraq and use them to patrol the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration. The World Knights obtained a permit in July for the two-hour demonstration. The National Park Service granted it under the group's First Amendment rights to free speech.

    Sep 3, 2006 — A member of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan held an umbrella over Wrightsville resident James Lewis on Saturday, keeping the steady drizzle from his tall pointed hood and long white robe with black accents. The robe's an old one. His other one has green stripes added to show his new status as Grand Dragon of the Pennsylvania chapter of the Klan, a position he took two weeks ago. Lewis, a Klansman since he was 15, was one of three in white robes who led a group of about 26 Klan members and supporters...

    Back to Basics for the Republican Party ^ | July 25, 2006 | Michael Zak
    Addressing the NAACP’s annual meeting, President Bush made good progress in reaching out to African- American voters. The warm reception from the audience must have worried Democrats who consider themselves owners of the African-American vote. Even more important, however, than how the NAACP views the Republican Party is how the Republican Party views itself. As Republicans embrace their heritage as “the party of Lincoln,” they will understand the true heritage of the Democrats to be “the party of slavery” and “the party of the Confederacy” and the party of the Ku Klux Klan.” Laudable as his remarks were, President Bush...

    Open Anti-Semitism in San Francisco by Lee Kaplan Jul 06, '06 / 10 Tammuz 5766 Although I'd written about it many times, and read about it in second-hand reports, I never actually heard it said with my own two ears. After all, this was America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where religious intolerance might exist in closed circles, but which was generally not openly voiced in public except by fringe hate groups like the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Palestinian supporters in America team up with those groups against Jews, but don't like...

    The son of a former Ku Klux Klan leader was arrested Tuesday on charges that he beat and critically injured his father during a fight Saturday. Indiana State Police say they arrested Anthony D.

He was being held in the DeKalb County Jail without bail Tuesday on a felony charge of aggravated battery, said Indiana State Police Detective Mark Heffelfinger. Berry's father, former KKK leader Jeffrey Lynn Berry, 53, was in critical condition Tuesday at a Fort Wayne hospital, Heffelfinger said. A probable cause affidavit said that the elder Berry...

    Senator Robert Byrd, 88, one of Congress's most eloquent and outspoken critics of the US military presence in Iraq, became the US Senate's longest-serving member. The frail octogenarian who hobbles through the corridors of the Senate with the aid of a cane in each hand was first elected to the legislature's upper chamber in 1958. Known for his florid oratory, in recent years he has given numerous speeches from the Senate floor against the upward spiraling cost of rebuilding Iraq and the US motives for invading that country. He has represented the eastern coal-mining state of West Virginia the Senate...

You better believe that. If the House impeaches you, the Senate will try you. The Senate, don't forget it, serves as a court of impeachment and has an equal say with the House on legislation. The Senate has an equal say with the other body on legislation.
