An outspoken pro-life sheriff from Wisconsin is challenging Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to return her Margaret Sanger Award and denounce the racism she promoted during her lifetime.
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has decried how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry have disproportionately targeted black preborn babies, and he is now asking the former first lady to reject the award she received from the abortion giant that was founded nearly a century ago by the notoriously racist Margaret Sanger.
In a recent tweet, Clarke appealed to journalist Jake Tapper in an attempt to have Clinton dissolve her ties with the racial eugenicist.
“Ask Mrs. Bill Clinton if she’ll return Planned Parenthood founder Sanger award and denounce endorsement,” the African American sheriff tweeted to the journalist on Wednesday, according to LifeSiteNews.
Clinton has made it very clear throughout her 2016 presidential campaign that she is unconditionally standing behind Planned Parenthood —even in the midst of its recent selling of baby body parts scandal. Earlier this year, the former secretary of state said she was “honored” when she received Planned Parenthood’s first-ever endorsement of a candidate in a presidential primary — being the only recipient in its 100-year history.
Sanger a hero?
The current Democratic frontrunner has had close connections to Planned Parenthood for some time, and has often commended Sanger for her legacy in so-called “women’s reproductive rights,” despite the founder’s racist agenda to depopulate “inferior” races through abortion.
“But the presidential endorsement wasn’t the first time Planned Parenthood honored Clinton,” LifeSiteNews reports. “In 2009, Clinton proudly accepted Planned Parenthood’s self-described ‘highest honor,’ its covetedSanger Award. She blushed and gushed that she was ‘in awe of’ the racial eugenicist.”
The White House hopeful made no mistake about it that Sanger is her American idol.
“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously — her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” Clinton proclaimed when she accepted the award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas. “I am really in awe of her. There are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.”
Pro-life advocates are not holding their breath after Clarke’s plea for Clinton to give up her award — or her allegiance to Sanger’s abortion ideals — noting that she has attempted to lift Planned Parenthood’s founder into the ranks with American history’s greats.
“In April 2009, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, dialogued with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on foreign policy,” LifeSiteNews’s Steven Ertelt informed. “At 4 minutes 25 seconds into this video, Hillary Clinton compares the eugenics advocate and racist Margaret Sanger to Thomas Jefferson. Clinton even seems to say that Sanger is superior to Jefferson.”
Acclaimed Christian author Eric Metaxas has often pointed out Sanger’s extreme racist views.
“Sanger wrote about the ‘deterioration in the human stock’ and ‘the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents, and dependents,’” Metaxas explained. “Lest you have any doubt about what this woman of so-called ‘courage, … tenacity, [and] vision’ meant, Sanger was committed to reducing the number of African Americans through contraception.”
Sanger’s own words have often been used to prove that her racist views are more than conjecture, as can be seen from this quote, where she is seen directing others to conceal her controlled genocide of black populations within America.
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities,” Sanger urged. “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.”
According to recent reports from the Associated Press, a major sector of Clinton’s strongest supporters are the same black women who supported Barack Obama in the previous two elections. In light of fact that Clinton unapologetically backs Sanger and all that she stands for, pro-life advocates find it ironic that the very voters targeted by Planned Parenthood’s assault on their preborn are actually lifting her up at the ballot box.
“Isn’t it amazing that a woman who said what Sanger did isn’t vilified more generally as a racist intent on eliminating African Americans?” Ertelt pondered.
