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.

Ron Paul Leads Presidential Poll

Ron Paul currently leads my unscientific presidential poll. I thought it might be interesting to see what friends of The Truth About Margaret Sanger blog thought about the upcoming presidential election. Nine days left to vote and feel free to post comments below about your favorite candidate whether it be Ron Paul, Sam Brownback, Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, Tom Tancredo or one of the others.

Aside from Ron Paul, Sam Brownback and Duncan Hunter also seem to be running well.

And from Catholics against Rudy, we get this quote from Giuliani:

In the 1990s, Giuliani also spoke at a Planned Parenthood convention and declared a “Planned Parenthood Day” and issued a proclamation honoring eugenist Margaret Sanger.”

Pit Bulls Pull Ahead of Unborn Babies...Will SUV's Be Next?

I knew unborn babies were not too popular with the media, but I never thought I would see the day when Pit Bulls pulled ahead of unborn babies in terms of popularity.






The outcry and public protests due to the mistreatment of pit bulls has been overwhelming. If only unborn humans were loved so much. Where is the outrage when this little fella is killed?



For now, at least, the unborn remain more popular with the media than SUV's.

Vick Dog Fighting Scandal 'Reminds Me of Other Cruelty' Says Dr. Alveda King


Contact: Jerry Horn, Priests for Life, 540-220-0095


ATLANTA, Ga., July 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that the allegations of animal cruelty announced in the case against star quarterback Michael Vick highlight the disparity in societal protections for animals and unborn humans.


"The appalling cruelty to dogs described in the complaint against Michael Vick immediately reminds me of another kind of cruelty that is not only not punished, but is protected by our authorities," said Dr. King. "I'm talking about the incredible cruelty suffered by babies who are stabbed, have limb torn from limb, or have their skulls crushed in the womb by abortionists. The pain these children endure is undoubtedly excruciating, yet we close our eyes and look the other way in the name of 'choice.'"


'Yes, of course we should ensure humane treatment of animals," said Dr. King, "but shouldn't we also humanely treat humans?"

Margaret Sanger to Ku Klux Klan: "Mission Accomplished!"


I couldn't help but think of Margaret Sanger when I saw the above cartoon from Kranky's Cartoons.

If Margaret Sanger were to return today to Silver Lake to speak once again at a Ku Klux Klan Rally where she spoke 81 years ago, she would certainly say "Mission Accomplished!"

*In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born.

*A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby.

*Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.

*Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

*Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.

*Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

*About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

In fact, many now even refer to the organization that Margaret Sanger founded as Klan Parenthood.

We do not know exactly what Margaret Sanger said at the Silver Lake Klan Rally when she spoke there 81 years ago, but if she could have predicted the devastation her organization would bring upon the Black community, the racists would have gone away very happy.
If the goal of the Ku Klux Klan 81 years ago was to wreak havoc and death upon the African-American community, Margaret Sanger could proudly report today: "Mission Accomplished!"

The Democratic Party's Stealth War on Black Americans

An interesting article at Town Hall... The Democratic Party's Stealth War On Black Americans :

***

Of course, we can’t forget about abortion. Like most black Americans, the Republican Party is staunchly opposed to abortion. But, Democrats don’t see it that way – and don’t kid yourself, part of the reason why Democrats are so rabidly pro-abortion is because they believe it helps lower the number of black Americans. Today, they won’t come out and say that, but Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was never so circumspect about her motives. From La Shawn Barber, ”More controversial is Sanger’s ‘Negro Project,’ devised in 1939. The eugenicist set out to implicate black ministers and doctors in her efforts to spread her message of contraception, sterilization, and abortion in the black community. ‘The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not 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 occurs to any of their more rebellious members,’ she wrote.”

Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans

Chittlin Talk has a very informative post on Margaret Sanger and her talk at the KKK Rally in Silver Lake. It follows below in its entirety:

The Negro Project

Go to http://www.citizenreviewonline.org/special_issues/population/the_negro_project.htm

Say it aint so!:

"In 1926, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a guest speaker at a KKK rally in Silverlake, New Jersey."
(http://www.catholicity.com/commentary/coyne/neonazi.html)

"In fact, she was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, N. J. in 1926"
(http://www.scholarscorner.com/ethics/Anti-Semitism.html)

"In 1926, in what she called "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing", Sanger even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey, a group she found so ignorant she had to use only "the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand."(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger)

And go to http://members.cox.net/gaelic/SangerKlan.jpg for an interesting photograph. Let's not "whitewash" history. I sincerly hope I am mistaken and she advocated birth control for KKK members. The friend of my enemy is my enemy.

Margaret Sanger: What did she say to the Ku Klux Klan?

When trying to figure out what Margaret Sanger said when she spoke at the Ku Klux Klan Rally in Silver Lake, one might want to start by reviewing what she said in other venues.

Diane Dew has a pretty good collection of Margaret Sanger quotes that can be seen here:

Margaret SangerFounder of Planned Parenthood In Her Own Words

My guess is that she began her talk at the Ku Klux Klan Rally with something similar to this one:
