After Ku Klux Klan Speech: A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups

In her autobiography, Margaret Sanger tells us that in 1926 in Silver Lake, New Jersey, she spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally. Not surprisingly, the made-for-TV movie about Sanger, Choices of the Heart: The Margaret Sanger Story , forgot to mention Maggie's Klan rally speech, but the event has begun to get more attention of late from some commentators.

Rereading Sanger's own account of her Ku Klux Klan speech, one thing really jumped out at me the other day. Here are some of the more relevant passages:

"Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan..."

"After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. "

"In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York."

12 invitations to speak to similar groups! That must have been one heck of a speech to our nation's premiere hate group! What could the racist founder of Planned Parenthood possibly have said to inspire such a reaction? How did she engage this hate group so that the "conversation went on and on" late into the night? What were the "simple illustrations " that made this hate group go so ga-ga over Maggie?

Of course, if Margaret Sanger simply repeated some of the things she had said elsewhere, the Ku Klux Klanners would have been puddy in her hands:

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

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go 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."

Yes, a couple of lines like the one's above, and you can imagine the murmur in the crowd as the Ku Klux Klanners whispered to each other things like:

"We really must have her talk at our next Klan rally in Peoria...this lady is phenomenal."

"Oh yes, they will love the way Maggie refers to Negroes as 'human weeds.'"

"My husband will love her...she sounds just like him!"

Given Sanger's long history of racist quotes , it is no surprise "the conversation went on and on" between this racist women and the Ku Klux Klan.

Yes, Maggie must have really brought her "A-game" that night to get 12 additional invitations to similar hate groups.

Since Margaret Sanger was so open about speaking to the Ku Klux Klan and so outspoken about her hatred of Blacks, I am always surprised when critics object to my annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest. What can possibly be wrong with depicting Margaret Sanger at a Ku Klux Klan Rally when she openly admits to it in her autobiography? She even refers to the women "parading with banners and illuminated crosses" and describes it as "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing."

Of course, if Sanger had been a conservative Christian, any made-for-TV movie about her life made by Hollywood would necessarily open with Margaret Sanger giving her fiery speech before the adoring women of the Ku Klux Klan with her past racist quotes inserted into her mouth in an attempt to most accurately depict the event. There would be entire books and plays dedicated to the event and elementary school students would learn about it in 4th, 6th and 8th grades.

But since Sanger founded the McDonald's of the abortion industry, Planned Parenthood, the mainstream media, who are just as ga-ga over Maggie and the Klan was, just ignores that magical night in Silver Lake when Maggie cut loose and won the hearts of a hate group. So until Hollywood does its job and tells the true story about Margaret Sanger, our tiny blog will continue with its annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest - - so begin preparing now for the 3rd Annual contest in October.

Is that the best race baiting scandal you can dredge up as a right wing extremist? A few "artist conceptions" and some "what if" suppositions?

There's more racism and hatred in every sentence uttered by Ann Coulter and/or Bill OReilly.

I think you are missing the point. At the time Sanger gave this speech, the KKK was burning down black peoples homes and lynching them.

Or do you also believ Sanger faked her own autobiography?

Hey - I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and I like your blog. Margaret Sanger is one of the biggest racists in American history with her main objective for abortion being to "exterminate the Negro population."
If it's okay I'd like to add you to my blogroll.

What has demolished the blacks in the past 50 years is the Great Society and its making the ticket out of the house for three generations (short generations, I must add, as 'old enough to bleed old enough to breed' becomes in this situation the norm) of Black females the simple expedient of spreading their legs.

It has produced a number of White trailer trash as well, but they are not a significant vector for the Whites yet. For the Blacks it was and is devastating, shaving many precious points of average IQ-and worse, debasing the hereditary character-off the Black averages. For welfare breeding makes the laziest and most indolent females be impregnated by the most vicious, indiscriminate males.

300+ years of Black progress were immolated in thirty or less.

Your quote "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." is a lie. No, Margaret Sanger never said that. That's a complete fabrication.
