Between the Blackface/KKK photo and his position on infanticide, Governor Northam’s personal crisis brings up a conversation that’s long overdue.
*Update — a meme with a wrongly attributed quote has been removed from this story*
Democrats see themselves as the only option for minority voters, especially black voters.
They also venerate Margaret Sanger as a secular saint. There’s a problem (that should be obvious) with trying to hold both views at the same time.
The aggressive support of abortion on the left we’ve seen in recent years should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention. When Obama was still a Senator, he voted in favor of the exact same infanticide protocol that got Governor Northam in hot water.
Obama prioritized the mother’s intent for abortion over the medical care of an infant who — in the process of an abortion attempt — miraculously survived.
That lines up with the stance New York, and some other blue states, have been taking in throwing off all restraint to abortion at ANY point.
Margaret Sanger would be thoroughly pleased.
Why wouldn’t she be, she WAS a black-hating eugenicist, after all.
Funny how Democrats claim that REPUBLICANS are somehow ‘afraid’ of what they term the ‘browning of America’. Republicans aren’t the ones making it possible for more black babies in New York to be aborted than born.
And with New York’s new laws, that number can only go higher.
Just imagine what the black population would be today if they had survived the womb?
Like I said, Margaret Sanger would give a Big Thumbs Up to how successfully the Democrats are convincing Black Americans to self-destruct, at levels FAR greater than that of any other ethnic group in America.
One example of her views, in her own words:
Sanger’s eugenics project carried its own racial preoccupation. In a letter of Dec. 10, 1939, to Clarence Gamble (cited here), she explains the nature of her organization’s outreach to the African-American community: “The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to get 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.” In her autobiography she proudly recounts her address to the women of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, N.J., in 1926.

Read that phrase again, slowly.
“Exterminate the Negro Population”
Hey Democrats — does that phrase make you at all uncomfortable?
Right now people are near losing their minds over blackface. But they still hail this racist woman with murderous intent as a ‘hero’.
Is that REALLY that attitude of someone we ought to memorialize in America? Or should she be considered a blight and a stain on our history, one we learn from and carefully avoid repeating, no matter WHAT you may think about her role in mainstreaming birth control?
The WSJ published a story about the comparative birth rate and abortion rates of black babies, but since it’s behind a paywall, we’ll link our readers to this story that relates some of the numbers cited.
According to a city Health Department report released in May, between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. By contrast, births far surpassed abortions among whites, Asians and Hispanics.
What about nationally? Riley writes
Nationally, black women terminate pregnancies at far higher rates than other women as well. In 2014, 36% of all abortions were performed on black women, who are just 13% of the female population. The little discussed flip side of “reproductive freedom” is that abortion deaths far exceed those via cancer, violent crime, heart disease, AIDS and accidents.
Think about that. 13% of the female population, 36% of all abortions!
Our single issue focus means we will not explore what Riley sees as the hypocrisy of those who value black lives out of the womb but are silent about the slaughter of black lives in the womb.
What we can say is that every abortion is a failure and a tragedy multiplied on a scale in the black community so vast that it almost defies description.
Since the Left has been trying to tell us that Blackface was commonplace in the 1980s and we should shrug and dismiss it as the behaviour of people who lived in ‘less enlightened’ times or something, consider this story from 1982.
President Reagan paid an impromptu visit late today to a suburban Washington home to reassure its black owners that the cross-burning they experienced five years ago was ”not something that should have ever happened in America.”
The President decided to make the visit after reading an article in today’s Washington Post about the troubles that Barbara and Phillip Butler suffered when they moved to the College Park Woods subdivision early in 1977.
”I thought maybe I might just call attention to how reprehensible something of this kind is,” Mr. Reagan told reporters as he left the tan brick home after a 20-minute meeting with the Butlers, their four-year-old daughter and Mrs. Butler’s mother.
Republican heroes look a lot different from the Democrat’s heroes, don’t they?
So if a Democrat tries to say that people ‘back then’ didn’t know it was wrong, tell them that may be true of Democrats, but Republicans knew better — even ‘back then’.
MLK, unlike Sanger, was opposed to abortion.
Should it really surprise us that the party of race-baiting intersectionalist victimhood has aligned itself against MLK’s OTHER priorites, too?
