Quote Of The Day: Pat Robertson Says Planned Parenthood Founder Wants To “Lead Black People Toward Euthanasia, THE LIBERAL AGENDA HURTS BLACKS
Televangelist Pat Robertson slammed Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger on Wednesday, saying her writings advocated a plan to drive minorities “toward euthanasia.”

“Go back and read her writings,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club.”“What Margaret Sanger believed was there were defective, genetically defective people. They were Roman Catholics, they were evangelical protestants, they were Southern Europeans, they were Latinos and especially, they were African Americans.” Robertson went on to say Sanger wanted to find a “highly respected” leader in those communities to be the spokesman for Planned Parenthood in order to “lead the black people toward euthanasia.”

Robertson also compared Sanger to “the Nazis,” who he said “found people that they thought were defective and they wanted to sterilize them and of course, ultimately murder them.” It’s not the first time Robertson has compared Sanger to Nazis. In April, he said Sanger “set the stage for Adolf Hitler.”Hmmmm and here’s what Sanger had to say in response to Robertson’s allegations:

The infamous out of context quote that she wanted to find prominent Negro physicians to help with birth control in the South was to counteract Black fears of birth control so that Black women could control their family size just as whites were doing.
These statements by Robertson are part of a long pattern of falsehoods and distortions by the anti-birth control crowd who have no valid arguments against birth control, so they resort to smearing a women who has been dead for a half century.

She did endorse compulsory sterilization in limited circumstances but in general opposed it as much as she opposed compulsory motherhood.

She said:“Compulsory motherhood is the cornerstone of the subjection of women and the subjection of women is the basis of all the evils of over-population. Birth is the woman’s problem, and she must be put in a position to solve it for herself. She must have the right to her own body, and the right to choose when she will bear a child. If this right be made absolutely hers, there will be an end to the bearing of children for whom the world has no room and no opportunities; there will be an end to the bearing of diseased and defective children…”

WELL SHE FOUND THAT DOCTOR IN PHILLY

That may be unfair. But those who are interested in education are intimidated by the prevailing ghetto culture that demeans education and glorifies decadence, drugs, and crime.

Shooting down a domestic airliner is far different than blowing up a bunch of Muslims in Benghazi. There was zero warning on the first three planes. But we were apparently prepared to shoot down the fourth plane.

There was no downside in blowing the crap out of Benghazi, even after we knew that the Americans were dead. Send a message, the only message that those people understand.

Amen, Brotha....lookie here in Michigan where many urban-cooked school districts are calling on Lansing to bail them out for many MILLIONS. Deetroit, Saginaw, Flint, Pontiac....the list is big and getting bigger every day.
Which means that all of the responsible school districts elsewhere are being funded by taxpayers, too, who are now told to also pay for black school district malfeasance.
The bow is going to break very soon.
Didja know that the inept, crooked DEEtroit City Council called in their 'big guns' Teeny Weeny Alvin Sharpton and greazy "Reverend' Jesse to play their skin game here but to no avail?
They even publicly called on Eric Racist Holder and the Boy Messiah to intervene and bring the weight of the entire Federal Justice Dept. down on Governor Rick Snyder....but nothing happened:]
Deetroit's School board is even more corrupt than Deetroit's City Council. As time passes, they become increasingly irrelevant as the Governor's appointed EM's shove them aside, roll up their sleeves and fix things.
Nice post. Agree.

By your logic; the government should institute forced marriage and stone people to death for having sex before marriage!
Oh yes, the rightwing authoritarian at his finest.
Then you can hire sex police to make sure no one is doing it; they can knock on doors; "papers please?"
"Book 'em Danno, these two aren't married"
I thought Galt's post was quite pointed and insightful. Why didn't you answer his question? "By your logic, why bother with marriage at all, straight or homosexual? Just screw away, like ghetto bunnies."

So...why bother with a definition? Someone else is bound to come up with a different version. Are you going to be the one who excludes them and denies them their rights?

From NC to CT! Should be good for business in Florida, they're sticking around for 6 weeks! What a nightmare.
(Right, Grampy is responding to trolls today)

New grandson is doing great. He's coming over in about an hour with his mom.

I remember watching the cicadas swarm at the PGA Memorial a few years back in Dublin Ohio. Here in CT we get some cicadas hatching every year. They are not all on the same 17 year cycle. This year's cicada din won't be as bad as it was 17 years ago, only because my hearing is worse than it was then...
