When is a racist a racist?
By Clenard Childress

Imagine for a moment you heard the following comments over the air waves or read them in your local newspaper. Would you consider this person to be a Racist?

    "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Or this one:

    "A nation rises or sinks on the physical or mental quality of its citizens. It cannot thrive when its fundamental structure is based on defective stock, the increase of morons, feeble minded, psychopaths or diseased slum populations."

Here is another:

    "One fourth of those that make up this nation are physically or mentally unfit to carry on the heritage of our civilization. It is this group (guess who) whom combat and weigh down the advance of this nation."

Lastly this riveting observation:

    "Colored people are human weeds and they are to be exterminated."

Do these comments sound Racist to you? What if you found out later this same person spoke occasionally at Ku Klux Klan meetings? What if you discovered she corresponded and met with Adolph Hitler? Or you learned, through this collaboration, "Der Führer" credited this individual for inspiring him to begin his murderous dispensing of those he deemed socially undesirable? Is this person a Racist?

Certainly at this point I am insulting your dignity and character by even asking the question. But if you have an ounce of insight and moral fiber in your being, you have come to the conclusion, with such obvious Racist comments and company — this person would be considered Racist.

Next question: What would you say to the person or persons who would not say she is Racist? Such it is with Planned Parenthood. The quotes you read are from its Founder, Margaret Sanger. You called her a Racist — Planned Parenthood refuses.

Why no such admission? Because America has not demanded a change (nor Barack Obama, for that matter) in Planned Parenthood's Racist agenda! America has failed to ask the hard questions demanding hard answers.

Sen. Robert C. Byrd, who was a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter, in 1946 said, "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be provided immediately and in every state of the union." Senator Byrd confessed his misdeeds publicly and has denounced his past behavior and comments. Margaret Sanger spoke at the Klan's meetings and there never was an apology by her and there has yet to be an apology from Planned Parenthood.

Remember Alabama Gov. George Wallace who stood at the door of Foster Auditorium at the University of Alabama blocking the attempt of two Black Students, Vivian Malone and James Hood, from entering? Gov. Wallace in his inaugural speech stated: "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever!" yet later repented of these Racist comments and behavior, and openly apologized for them. Planned Parenthood flat-out refuses to apologize!

This is an organization that gets $337,000,000 of tax payer's blood and sweat to kill babies. Last year Planned Parenthood reported a $114,000,000 profit, yet has repeatedly been charged of shielding Child Rapists, fraudulent Title Ten reporting, of targeting minorities for abortions, and purposely defrauding the citizens of California of millions in State and Federal Tax Dollars.

Will anyone hold them accountable? Why doesn't Congress call for a Congressional Investigation? Could it be because of the promise of Planned Parenthood to spend $10,000,000 on Congressional races in the fall? Has Planned Parenthood successfully bribed Congress into continuing to give them a pass so as not to investigate? America should look very carefully into the silence and compliance of those in Congress who refuse to hold Planned Parenthood accountable.

America must respond decisively. America must snap out of this hypnotic evil similar to the one which turned Germany into a calloused nation apathetic to the plight of the disadvantaged, the sick, and those culturally different from themselves. Adolph Hitler began his reign of Genocide with the poor on the streets by redefining his intended victims, thus bringing social acceptance to mass murder. What you and I would call the poor, he called, "useless eaters." Society did not bring any sort of challenge against him because the Holocaust began incrementally.

America, too, has become consumed with white-washed nomenclature which desensitizes our consciences, lulling society into acceptance. We kill the infirm and we call it Assisted Suicide; we kill the old and call it Mercy Killing; we kill the lame and call it Euthanasia; we kill the unborn and call it 'A Women's Right to Choose.' We kill a nation and all it we call it Ethnic Cleansing; we kill a race and we call it Genocide; we endorse perversion and we call it 'Alternative Life Styles.' We perpetuate poverty and we call it Welfare; we worship other's Gods and we call it Multiculturalism; we neglect the needy and we call it self-preservation. We pollute the air with pornography and call it Free Speech, and instead of saying it is a stage in one's precious life, we call it a Trimester.... The diabolical manipulation of terminology to condition culture into accepting immoral and/or unethical practices is rampant. This depravation is deliberate and has become systemic and we need to observe how depraved we have become.

What is the remedy, America? Let us start with our most egregious sin: Over 50,000,000 babies have been murdered in the womb of their mothers since 1973 and the leading perpetrator is Planned Parenthood. Let us call the Founder what she was: a Racist, and demand Planned Parenthood to do the same! When you pick up the phone to call your Congressman, give Planned Parenthood a call and ask why they won't admit Margaret Sanger was a Racist?

Could it be it's because they are carrying out her agenda today!
