A group of African American pastors have demanded that the Smithsonian remove a statue of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.The Left doesn't care about anything but the Narrative. They have secured the "Right" to kill en masse, and they will protect that Right despite any facts or evidence. They cannot relinquish that "Right", and they will fight any attack on that "Right" with all their resources, legal and otherwise.
The museum displays the Sanger bust in their “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, which is supposed to honor “champions of justice”.
The museum has so far refused to do so.
Smithsonian Director Kim Sajet stated, “There is no ‘moral test’ for people to be accepted into the National Portrait Gallery.”
Now, the black pastors, along with other pro-life advocates and Republican Senator Ted Cruz, have taken it one step further, rallying outside the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery to demand the removal of the statue.
They pointed out that from from being a champion of justice, Sanger supported eugenics to rid the nation of those she deemed “defective” and “feeble-minded”, by stopping the growth of their populations, particularly blacks and other minorities.
Star Parker said: “Margaret Sanger is a racist who wanted to end the black population through birth control and abortion. But The Smithsonian, funded by our tax dollars, celebrates this woman, even mentioning her advocacy of eugenics! They don’t even hide it! It is breath-taking in its idiocy.”
“That’s why Senator Ted Cruz, black pastors, and I will not only demand the removal of Sanger from this exhibit, but also demand an apology to all Americans!” she continued.
Margaret Sanger books reveal how she viewed minorities and the poor. In her book, “Pivot of Civilization”, she describes African-Americans and immigrants as “human weeds”, “reckless breeders”, and “spawning… human beings who never should have been born”.
In “Women and the New Race”, Sanger even wrote: “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
Sadly, you won’t hear about this protest from the ‘fake news’ mainstream news media who know about Sanger’s racist views, but conveniently overlook them as well as this event, because it doesn’t fit in with their political agenda.
The pastor’s wrote, “Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies, an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded’; speaking at a rally of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers.”
They added, “Also the notorious ‘Negro Project’, which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild. Despite these well-documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice. The obvious incongruity is staggering!”
A report by Lifenews pointed out that Planned Parenthood, who continues Sanger’s work places 79% of their abortion facilities near minority neighborhood.
Watch for the Smithsonian to invoke "Free Speech" and the First Amendment.
