Imagine what would happen if a sitting United States president was the keynote speaker at a racist organization’s annual fundraising dinner. And what if, at that same dinner, this racist organization handed out an award named after a person who devoted her life to the extermination of, among others, blacks?
Sadly, you don’t have to imagine what this would be like. It will be happening for real later this year when President Barack Obama delivers the keynote address at Planned Parenthood’s fundraising gala. And at that same gala, Dr. Ruth Westheimer will be given the Margaret Sanger Award because of her lifelong commitment to helping men and women talk about sex.
Margaret Sanger is more than just the name of a Planned Parenthood award. Sanger was the woman responsible for founding Planned Parenthood. She was a big supporter of eugenics as a means of reducing the growth of the black population. Her plan of attack was called the Negro Project. Is it any wonder that today Planned Parenthood is so determined to spread their “care” among blacks?
Randy Alcorn’s words are worth noting.
“I do not believe that most people who support abortion rights are racists, any more than I believe there are no racists among pro-lifers. I am simply suggesting that regardless of motives, a closer look at both the history and present strategies of the pro-choice movement suggests that abortion for the minorities may not serve the cause of equality as much as the cause of supremacy for the healthy, wealthy and white.”
If Gerald Ford or Bill Clinton gave the keynote address at an Aryan Brotherhood rally where the Adolf Hitler award was given out, I’m sure that we would all be outraged. And we should. Just as we should be outraged upon finding out that our current president will be speaking for a racist organization where a racist individual will be honored.
President Obama didn’t just show up on the political scene. No, he got here on the shoulders of men like Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers. Men who fought against injustice. Men who refused to look the other way. Men who were a voice for those who had no voice.
Imagine what would happen if our president would follow the example of those great men.
