With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Going to be hard to put a coalition together for that one...I don't believe a word that comes out of the mouth of Trump nor should any sane person.  I would not follow the USA on any foreign policy decision, it has disaster written all over it.

Looks like Flynn is being dropped like a hot stone.

Both Sally Yates and Chris Christie warned against Flynn, and both got sacked.

Obama told Trump not to hire Flynn and was, predictably, ignored. Because Trump is a moron who will lie after the event to try and claim he is a victim.

Suggestions are the Trump is planning to pardon some people convicted of war crimes.

With all the focus on abortion rights in the US, I found it particularly interesting that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist and a racist who hated black people. As the head of the female KKK chapter, she would be very happy with the work planned parenthood is doing considering that African Americans make up the majority of abortion stats. Of course you’d never find this info in the media. 

Could you imagine if the founder of the NRA belonged to the KKK and was openly racist? The media and white leftists would be shouting it from the rooftops.

Yes, you will never find this easily accessible information in the media which is where I read it this week.

She was a eugenicist and did give a talk (once) to a chapter of the KKK.  Unfortunately that’s not enough for YK so he has to embellish it so she was now the head of the female chapter of the KKK and an all out racist.

"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan ... I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses ... I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak ... In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered" (Margaret Sanger, "An Autobiography," Page 366)

“Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks—those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” (Apostle of Birth Control Sees Cause Gaining Here, The New York Times, 1923-04-08)

Comparing blacks to monkeys:

“The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.” (Margaret Sanger, What Every Girl Should Know)

 

But no, Margaret Sanger was not a racist.......

Another one:

“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." -- Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble,

And what did she say about the KKK?

"Always to me any aroused group was a good group," Sanger writes, "and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing."

And

"Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand,"

The quotes I gave are damning enough evidence. I don’t think anybody can defend her. Her views on black people cannot be justified nor defended

What exactly is YK trying to distract from with his latest posts?

What is the relevance of someone who died 50 years ago to the current issues of the current Republican party? 50 years ago Nelson Rockefeller was a Republican, the Dixiecrats hadn't yet fully switched en-masse from the Democratic party to the Republican party and through the '70s most Republicans were pro choice.

A lot has changed since then. One thing is that the far right is now fully enmeshed in the Republican party where before it was outside it.

Probably that Planned Parenthood are the real racists and the abortion ban is justified as an anti racist measure.  Or something.  

Most of the quotes are selective of course, and politifact, etc give the context.  She was wrong about some things of course, much like most people of the time were.

Trump reacting to a segment on Fox news.  No really.  Not reacting to his intelligence or military committees, but to a segment on Fox.

I can’t help but giggle at your futile attempt. It’s actually quite shameful to even try to defend a racist. In case you didn’t read the quotes properly, she compared Aboriginals to apes. Enough said

What makes you think it’s a distraction? Is abortion not a hotly debated topic right now in the US? 

Planned Parenthood is at the centre of abortions in the US so its origin is pretty important one would think.

Of course there is always some justification when the left is caught with their pants down. The good old out of context excuse. She said what she said, I don’t know see anybody making the same excuses for the confederacy. No, in fact they are held to today’s standards so why is it different for Margaret Sanger? Doesn’t take long to figure that one out.

She died before they ever offered abortions.
