  • 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    It has been 18 months since I postulated my theory about why the Democrats in the U.S. Senate are filibustering President Bush's judicial nominees. I said it then, and I say it now – many of the leading Democratic politicians in America are racist to the core. While, superficially, the Democratic Party courts the black vote with promises of favoritism and charity, there's always been something condescending about this attitude. There's always been something patronizing about it. There's always been something insulting about it. I've suspected there are essentially two motivations behind the Democrats' promotion of racial preferences – or...

To the neo-Nazis, Muslims are almost all members of ``inferior`` races; and to the Islamic terrorists, the neo-Nazis are almost without exception either atheists or members of fringe quasi-Christian sects. But the reality is that there has been close cooperation between Muslim extremists and Fascists ever since the founding of the Nazi movement in the 1920`s. For all of their differences, Muslim extremists and Nazis have always been united by a common group of beliefs and...

    If you believe everything that Michael Moore says in Bowling for Columbine and his books, then you would think that "pro-gun" people are white racists, and that "gun control" would be a wonderful way to help minorities. But a look at America's past reveals what historian Clayton Cramer has accurately called "The Racist Roots of Gun Control." After the Civil War, the defeated Southern states aimed to preserve slavery in fact if not in law.

    Dr. Condoleezza Rice was confirmed as the new secretary of state by the U.S. Senate last week in an overwhelming 85-13 vote. Her confirmation came as no surprise, and her critics were the “usual suspects:” sore loser Democrats like Ted Kennedy and John Kerry, whose only goal in life is to make things difficult for the Bush administration. Most of the 12 dissenting Democrats (and one Democratic-leaning independent) voted as they did more for political reasons than anything else. They didn’t vote against Dr. Rice because she is unqualified: Virtually everyone, including her critics, agrees that she is. They voted...

    Auction house to start bidding on KKK robes 1/29/2005, 6:13 p.m. ET By DAVID EGGERT The Associated Press HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — Gary Gray said he felt more like a teacher than auctioneer Saturday, as visitors perused Ku Klux Klan robes and other KKK items ahead of an auction that has attracted a level of interest he's never seen before. He said a steady stream of people visited the auction house in Howell, about 35 miles east of Lansing and 55 miles west of Detroit, in the hours leading up to the big evening auction. He plans to sell seven...

    http://www.klanparenthood.com/ In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted than are born. A black baby is now more than three times as 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 have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined. Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history. Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics...

    The U.S. Supreme Court (news - web sites) rejected on Monday a free-speech challenge to a New York law banning the wearing of masks at public gatherings by a group claiming ties to the Ku Klux Klan. Without comment, the justices let stand a ruling by a U.S. appeals court that upheld the law as constitutional and rejected the challenge by the Church of the American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. The group advocates white separatism and "white pride." It calls itself an "ideological descendant" of the original Klan, but says it does not use violence. Members wear white...

    Eugenics Backer Causes Stir in Tenn. Race Tue Aug 3, 1:59 PM ET By AMBER McDOWELL, Associated Press Writer NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Republican congressional candidate James L. Hart acknowledges that he is an "intellectual outlaw." He is an unapologetic supporter of eugenics, the phony science that resulted in thousands of sterilizations in an attempt to purify the white race. He believes the country will look "like one big Detroit" if it doesn't eliminate welfare and immigration. He believes that if blacks were integrated centuries ago, the automobile never would have been invented. He shows up at voters' homes wearing a...

    Jewish World Review ^ | March 8, 2001 | Michelle Malkin
    EX-KLANSMAN Robert Byrd, the senior senator from West Virginia, casually used the phrase "white nigger" twice on national TV this weekend. Enraged civil rights groups organized a protest campaign against Sen. Byrd and demanded that he undergo sensitivity training ... not. The ex-Klansman, you see, is a Democrat. Democrats can join hate groups and utter the ugliest racial slurs and get away with it because they are Democrats. They belong to the party of racial tolerance and understanding. They're paragons of virtue, and the rest of us are bigoted rubes. The ex-Klansman showed his true colors when asked by Fox...

    A local Ku Klux Klan initiation ceremony turned bloody Saturday when one member accidentally shot another in the head. Washington County deputies said they arrested Gregory Allen Freeman, 45, Elizabethton, close to his home after he fled from the ceremony in Limestone, and charged him in the shooting of Jeffery S. Murr, 24, Erwin. According to Washington County Chief Deputy Patrick Littleton, the KKK group began the initiation Saturday of a new member, whose identity was not released, by driving him blindfolded around the county and ending up in a wooded area near 363 Bill West Road around 8 p.m....

    Just saw Mr. Large Breasts on Weekend Live with Tony Snow. Tony asked Bustamante four times to disassociate himself from the racist motto "For the race, everthing; for those outside the race, nothing." He absolutely refused to do so, completely avoiding and dodging the question each time. He talked about his record, and how college was a long time ago, but flatly refused to denounce the racist motto.

    Senator Byrd, As a retired Naval Officer, with two Gulf carrier deployments under my belt, I find your criticism of President Bush's visit to the Lincoln offensive in the extreme! This is the first time that the Commander-in-Chief took time out of his busy wartime schedule to pay a visit to thank those who served in the line of fire, in way that was both dramatic and meaningful to those on the carrier. Perhaps if LBJ got off his fat ass to do something similar, our troops' morale in Vietnam might not have been so low. As a Naval officer,...
