Dr. Ben Carson smears Margaret Sanger

By Tom Quiner

A Republican presidential candidate made highly uncharitable comments about the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger.

Talking to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Dr. Carson came on strong:

“Maybe I am not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood, but, you know, I know who Margaret Sanger is, and I know that she believed in eugenics, and one of the reasons you find most of their clinics in black neighborhoods is so that you can find a way to control that population. I think people should go back and read about Margaret Sanger who founded this place — a woman Hillary Clinton by the way says that she admires. Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany said about her.”

And what exactly did Nazis have to say about Ms. Sanger, Dr. Carson was asked?

“That she was a great person.”

Don’t you think Dr. Carson is kind of twisting Sanger’s words? For example, here is one of her quotes:

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go 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.”

Okay, okay, so she is advocating racial genocide, but that was then, this is today. Look at all the good her organization, Planned Parenthood, is doing for African Americans. They abort 5 times as many black babies as white babies. They locate most of their clinics in inner city as a customer service for black women. That helps explain why some 53% of all black babies are aborted.

Isn’t that a good thing, being sensitive to your customers?

As a result of Planned Parenthood efforts, the birth rate for the African-American community has now dropped below replacement level. In other words, if this trend continues, Ms. Sanger’s dream of black genocide will be realized while Planned Parenthood makes a boatload of money.

They get paid to abort black babies.

Then get paid when selling black baby body parts.

In this light, perhaps Dr. Carson’s squeamishness is understandable. Hillary Clinton certainly has no such angst. Margaret Sanger is her hero.

The mantra for a Hillary administration could very well be: “Let’s get over our love affair with the black fetus.”

Time to grow up, Dr. Carson.

    His strength of character is so encouraging. We need him more than the Left may ever know.

    He tells it like it is. We should change his name to, Sage Carson.

      Yes, he is a wise man.

    Great! Tweeted and Facebooked, but with an ‘irony’ alert, in case someone misses your point.

    • quinersdiner on August 13, 2015 at 1:29 pm

      The irony alert is a good idea. Some people are very literal.

    I love Ben Carson, he’s not only a neurological genius but he’s an excellent leader. I tend to share your posts quite often. Thanks for the read.

    An excellent line-up, Shawn. I might substitute Scott Walker for The Donald, though, lol. The liberals would all faint. Too much Christianity for their hardened hearts. They have to scorn us us so that they can live with their consciences.
