Ã¢â‚¬Å“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro populationÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬â€œMargaret Sanger, Founder, Planned Parenthood
Speaking in Hilo Friday, Rev Walter Hoye of the Progressive Baptist Church of Berkeley, CA told a gathering of 50 Hawaii religious leaders about forces of Ã¢â‚¬Å“black genocideÃ¢â‚¬Â which he says now kill as many African-Americans every three days as the KKK killed in 86 years of lynching.
Hoye arrived in Hilo after being released from an Alameda County, CA jail, where he was sent after Oakland, CA authorities crafted an ordinance designed specifically to stop him from speaking out in front of a Union City, CA Planned Parenthood abortion clinic about black womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right to choose alternatives to abortion. Hoye explained that Ã¢â‚¬Å“The African-American community is the abortion industryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s biggest customerÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. African-Americans are now reproducing below replacement levelÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. Thirty-seven per-cent of abortion comes from just 12% of the population.Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoye further pointed out that the 37% of abortions are coming from black women of childÃ¢â‚¬â€œbearing age–only 3% of the US population.
Hoye spoke at the Hawaii Family Life Issues Conference held Friday and Saturday at HiloÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s St Joseph School and sponsored by Hawaii Right to Life. Also speaking, Bobby Schindler, brother of Terry Schaivo and Joseph M. Scheidler, National Director of the Pro-Life Action League.
HoyeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reasoning is backed up by Angela Franks, author of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Legacy: The Control of Female Fertility.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Planned Parenthood dates its founding from 1916. To understand Planned Parenthood, one must understand the ideology of (its founder) Margaret Sanger.
While Planned Parenthood adamantly insists otherwise, it is clear that Sanger (1879-1966) was a eugenicist. She believed that birth control served a great eugenic purpose by stopping those she described as the genetically “unfit” from reproducing.
In her 1920 book, Woman and the New Race, Sanger explicitly called her work “nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or those who will become defectives.” As she wrote in The Birth Control Review, “the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the overfertility of the mentally and physically defective.”
Sanger did not rule out coercion if the “wrong” people had children. She wrote, “Possibly drastic and Spartan methods may be forced upon society if it continues complacently to encourage the chance and chaotic breeding that has resulted from our stupidly cruel sentimentalism.” “Choice,” indeed.
Sanger was not the only eugenicist involved with Planned Parenthood. Alan Guttmacher, president of Planned Parenthood from 1962-1974, once told a Planned Parenthood gathering, “The mentally retarded and the mentally defective . . . insidiously are replacing the people of normal mentality.”
Guttmacher, Sanger, and others in Planned Parenthood actively courted the involvement of eugenicists. In the 1920s, the “National Council” of her American Birth Control League had at least 23 persons involved at a prominent level in eugenics-nearly one-half the entire council!
The American Eugenic Society (AES) officially endorsed her group in 1932, and Sanger was a dues-paying member of the AES through the 1960s. Among those on her council was Lothrop Stoddard, a prominent racist who wrote The Rising Tide of Color Against White Supremacy and who also published eugenic articles in Sanger’s magazine.
Said Hoye citing figures from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, Ã¢â‚¬Å“African-Americans are first, Hispanics are secondÃ¢â‚¬Â in the percentage of abortions performed in the US. After decades of assault on the black family, progressive ministers such as Hoye are leading an effort to reverse the tide.
Interestingly black voters in California last November backed the anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 by a 70% margin. Hispanics were second in their level of support for Prop 8.
The reaction among gays was ugly–but revealing. One gay activist describes the scene last November in West Hollywood when the results were announced:
It was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks. YOU NIGGER, one man shouted at men. If your people want to call me a FAGGOT, I will call you a nigger. Someone else said same thing to me on the next block….
Over 500 abortions are performed in Hawaii County every year. Most are Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders.
