Nancy Pelosi “to be associated with the great Margaret Sanger is a distinct privilege”
Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. In addition to her Birth Control advocacy, Margaret Sanger also pushed for euthanasia. (read here )
Sanger founded the American Birth Control League which later changed their name to Planned Parenthood in 1942. A documentary produced in 2009, Maafa21, detailed the racist and eugenics agenda of Margaret Sanger and even tied Planned Parenthood to racist eugenics boards. The film clearly showed that Sanger was NOT an honorable person but rather a biased racist who wanted to rid the world of those she deemed “defective”, “feebleminded” or “unfit.” Watch Maafa21 here for that history – http://www.maafa21.com.
Nancy Pelosi’s acceptance speech makes it clear that the elitist Congresswoman agrees with Margaret Sanger and her Planned Parenthood philosophy, “: I thank all of you for the honor of receiving the Margaret Sanger Award. ..To be associated with the great Margaret Sanger is a distinct privilege. To be associated with past winners of this Margaret Sanger award is among my highest honors. I accept this honor tonight on behalf of my colleagues…Over the years, the opponents of family planning have targeted Planned Parenthood for one reason, and one reason only: Planned Parenthood is effective… thank you for the Margaret Sanger Award,” Pelosi said as she accepted the award.
Pelosi is not the only high ranking political official to sing the praises of Margaret Sager:
April of 2009: Congressman Jeff Fortenberry dialogues with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on foreign policy At 4 minutes 25 seconds into this video, Ms. Clinton compares the eugenics advocate and racist Margaret Sanger to Thomas Jefferson. Secretary Clinton even seems to say that Sanger is superior to Jefferson.
I guess it would be okay with Ms. Clinton if she praised a member of the KKK as long as they did something admirable in her eyes. Racism by Sanger and Her Cronies is NEVER acceptable to those who are the target of it. But a Wealthy White Elitist Woman like Hillary Clinton will never know that type of racism.
Hillary Clinton, ” I Deplore statements that you have referenced [ about Margaret Sanger] ”
And here is Hillary Clinton accepting Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award : Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepts the Margaret Sanger Award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas.
Hillary Clinton, ” I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” said Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life”
Margaret Sanger once bragged that she gave a speech to the Klan. In her own autobiography, Sanger claimed she received a dozen invites from the KKK for her beliefs.
In all the times that the racism label has been thrown around I have to wonder why Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton’s acceptance of an award named after a Klan Speaker and Eugenicist has not been decried by Americans in general and Black leaders specifically.
Perhaps most don’t even know what they really believe; I hope we can change that.
