  • What's it like not being able to check out a simple fucking quote on the internet to discover it's been made up by assholes with an agenda? It's not like Sanger was a saint, but no, you have to believe outright lies because they make people you don't like look bad.

    Do you know you're a lousy person, or are you deep in denial about it?

    • Sanger's views on race are well-documented. Perhaps her own recounting [freerepublic.com] of how well she was received by the KKK is a good starting place.
      • Yes, I know that. But you still elected to choose a fabricated quote. Why not use a real one?

        • It wasn't me, it was MarxistHacker. Nevertheless, I think his point is still valid.
          • First, sorry for confusing you with the OP, that was rude of me.
            Second, his "point" is literally 2 quotes, one of which is falsified. There's no substance to it at all.

            • In a December 10, 1939 letter, Margaret Sanger wrote to Dr. Clarence Gamble about her "Negro Project," saying, "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

      • Which, oddly enough, is where the quote comes from......But hey, mr "i kan read" who obviously can't, just keep believing the lies.

    • "Perhaps this is because the KKK's ideas and Margaret Sanger's ideas concerning race are so similar. No doubt the KKK must have been happy with Sanger's "Negro Project" which was designed to cut down on the number of black babies being born. In a December 10, 1939 letter, Margaret Sanger wrote to Dr. Clarence Gamble about her "Negro Project," saying, "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occ

      http://www.patheos.com/blogs/getreligion/2011/11/fact-checkers-agree-lay-off-sangers-eugenics/ [patheos.com]

      Looks like the fact checkers, only bothered to check one side of the story- the people denying that Sanger was racist.

    • And the same quote is at Wikiquote:

      • Even worse irony- as late as 1916, Margaret Sanger opposed abortion.
         
        And today, 40% of African American pregnancies end in abortion.
