Defund Police, Keep Planned Parenthood
Defund Police, Keep Planned Parenthood
It was only a matter of time before someone addressed the big elephant in the room. Enter Matt Walsh. All of this talk about how cities want to defund police departments in African-American neighborhoods yet not a peep about Planned Parenthood facilities.
The silence on this tone-deaf display of justice could only last so long. The organization that makes most of its revenue through abortions has not been far from silent on the topic, sensing the threat to their facilities:

Walsh calls protestors and activists out on the carpet:
Since we are on the subject of defunding things in order to protect black lives, it seems someone should make the rather obvious and unavoidable point. While defunding the police is sure to kill many more black people than it saves, defunding Planned Parenthood, and then abolishing abortion entirely, is sure to save many millions of lives while costing none.-Matt Walsh, The Daily Wire
Don’t dare say “all lives matter” here. Not even if you want to venture to say “all Black lives matter“-even down to the tiniest of them all. But let’s not defund Planned Parenthood, let’s defund the police.
It’s a valid question, though. If the police are so bad for fighting anti-racism, then what exactly is Planned Parenthood in this picture? Planned Parenthood has postured itself for decades as a “go-to” health clinic in African-American and Hispanic communities. They have done so under the guise of championing a woman’s right to choose and civil rights. They have used other Black politicians and members of their communities to advocate for abortions-err-family planning–uhhh-health care. In fact, the abortion rates for African-American women are four times higher than that of white women. How convenient Planned Parenthood is right around the corner! Want to talk injustice? In 2014, in New York City alone, more black babies were aborted than born. Where are the hags on the Upper East Side who are whining incessantly and teaching their private-school spawn about their privilege when we need them? Bring on the shrieking Brendas! Where’s the outrage of this injustice?
Doing the math, and taking into account the 330,000 abortions Planned Parenthood alone performs every year, it is fair to estimate that Planned Parenthood kills close to 100,000 black people annually. For comparison sake, police killed 1,000 people total last year — white, black, armed, and unarmed. Comparing just the number of unarmed black people killed by both groups, the ratio is 100,000 to 9. And yet police are the greatest threat to black lives?”-Matt Walsh, The Daily Wire
In order to understand this, we must harken back to Ms. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and a racist at that, plain and simple.
Sanger’s “Negro Project”, as she called it, was the mastermind of a white woman with a superiority complex. A white woman who felt that the genetic makeup of children who came from poor and minority families was inferior and therefore, disposable. Yet, Sanger was hailed a “champion for human rights“. To this day, publications defend Sanger and make justifications for her blatant racism, calling her bright idea of trimming down the “genetically inferior” (as she put it) population a bit more, uh, nuanced. Take some examples away from her speech entitled “My Way To Peace“:
(d) apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization, and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
(e) to insure the country against future burdens of maintenance for numerous offspring as may be born of feeble-minded parents, the government would pension all persons with transmissible disease who voluntarily consent to sterilization.
(f) the whole dysgenic population would have its choice of segregation or sterilization.
(g) there would be farm lands and homesteads where these segregated persons would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.”
Come again, what is the difference between the above and how Adolf Hitler felt about the Jews? Tainted progeny, she says? These are the musings of a sick person who advocated for sterilization, segregation, work camps, slavery and yes, ultimately, extermination. Let’s call this what it is. She founded an organization that is flush with funding from Democrat supporters. Let’s talk privilege and white supremacy and bigotry for but a moment. Sanger also didn’t fancy the idea of immigration too much, either:
(c) keep the doors of Immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feeble-minded, idiots, morons, insane, syphiletic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred from entrance by the Immigration Laws of 1924.”
Closing the borders to sick people or countries with diseases? Last time a rich, white guy did that, he got called a xenophobe and we got slapped with a pandemic and put on lockdown. But Margaret Sanger’s take on this was, of course, different, I guess. Why? Because she put Black people at the forefront of her “cause”. They stumped and advocated for her cause. What have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton done for these communities? Let’s just say, they’ve done more for Sanger and lined their pockets nicely. Sharpton has made a living out of this stuff.
“The forces that put many minority communities at risk during a pandemic have also put them at risk of police violence. Years of diminished economic opportunity, of marginalization, of structural racism, have led to both.” — https://t.co/mk5qADHuaT via @voxdotcom

And of course, nothing that Sanger said in her “Way To Peace” echoes the very plight these neighborhoods are facing now. Nothing she said reflects diminished economic opportunity, marginalization and a legacy of structural racism, does it? Nah. Of course not! That jolly old soul, (may she burn in hell), Margaret Sanger, meant nothing of the sort when discussing her white, intellectually superior, utopian society. By all means, let’s defund the police but don’t you dare defund Planned Parenthood, you racists!
