Eugenics- A Historical Perspective

 

I find it quite ironic, that leftist activist social justice warriors are so adamant when it comes to removing statues or memorials of Confederate Generals, or Confederate flags, while Planned Parenthood advocates for straight up genocide with blatant discriminatory racial implications. Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), founded the Birth Control League that was the precursor to Planned Parenthood (PP). This feminist firebrand was the face of a brand of eugenics that relied heavily on coercion. In Sanger’s speech “My Way to Peace” (1932), she advocates for segregation and sterilization imposed by the state. The first class of people that she wanted to sterilize were those suffering from mental or physical disability. She outlines the process that would slowly eliminate what she referred to as morons, mental defectives, and epileptics. Other undesirables like illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, drug users, prostitutes, etc., would be lead to forced sterilization or given the alternative of being placed in state work camps. They were then offered a ticket back to the mainstream if they displayed good behavior and agreed to sterilization so that they could not reproduce. This utopia that Sanger longed for, that she estimated would result in the incarceration and sterilization of 15 to 20 million Americans, would deliver on its promise to eliminate poverty and illness. But this elimination of the so called “undesirables” would disappear at the hand of government coercion, sterilization, and outright elimination of those that the government deems a detriment to society. In Sanger’s autobiography, she proudly speaks of her address to women of the KKK in Silver Lake NJ, in 1926. Sanger’s letter, penned December 10, 1939 to Clarence Gamble, highlights the racial intent that she had in the implementation of her twisted eugenics agenda. She states in the letter, “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.”

George Bernard Shaw, is another name that can be linked to the history of eugenics. As a playwright, Mr. Shaw had a certain degree of influence and he is still revered today, as any literature education that one may receive will speak highly of him. But aside from his literary talent, he was an advocate for elimination of undesirable people from society, via means up to and including gas chambers. Why do the social justice warriors ignore the history that surrounds those that are Sympatico with their ideological leanings? The reason is quite obvious, as we have allowed academia to erase American history as it happened and replace it with falsehoods, while insinuating that there is something inherently evil that is at the root of our country’s founding. Academia and its recent shift to communist ideology as gospel truth, is destroying America and our youth. Professors that are guiding our young people in universities today, would have followed the Rosenbergs into the death chamber to meet the electric chair 50 + years ago. It is incredible, and chilling to see the short time that it has taken us to go from the red scare, and executing communists, to a time where our education system is teaching our children that communism is favorable. Planned Parenthood, abortion on demand, communist policies, class warfare, the labor movement, and all the other staples of modern leftist ideology, are sold to the masses under a veil of lies and deceit. The Democrat party, as it existed in JFK’s time, is dead. It has been co-opted by communist/progressive revolutionaries and they are starting to infiltrate our federal government. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is only the first taste of this Anti-American world view that has started to take hold. This ideological contagion will continue to spread as long as Americans are duped into believing the lies. We have to take back education and we have to return to the place and time where we feared communism and the potential that exists in those that sing its praises.
