Progressive Heroes Of Our Time: Margaret Sanger

78

The Roman Catholic Church may have its saints, but the progressive left has something surely far better – true heroes. Whilst the saints look beyond this mortal coil and try to build ‘treasure in heaven’ for later, our progressive heroes roll up their shirt-sleeves and build heaven on earth today.

No-one epitomizes this philosophy more than Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. She is as worthy a person as anyone to begin this exciting series of articles about inspirational progressives.

Born in 1879, in a time when traditional ideas of ‘family’ and ‘monogamy’ still prevailed, Sanger’s ideas would eventually revolutionize the way we think about sex. In many ways, her revolutionary ideas set the scene for the 1960’s ‘sexual revolution’, Roe v Wade, and so much since. Sanger was the first to hear the joke ‘when two people, a man and a woman, get together, three is often the result’ and say ‘it ain’t necessarily so’.

According to the infallible Wikipedia, Sanger was an ‘American birth control activist, sex educator, writer, and nurse. She popularized the term “birth control”, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established organizations that evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.‘ However, this short bio fails to do justice to all her many achievements.

Let us start not from the beginning but rather in the present age. Our true president in waiting, Hillary Clinton, is on record as saying she ‘admires enormously’ the “courage”, “tenacity” and “vision” of Sanger. This is high praise indeed as one would expect from one who was delighted to be awarded the Planned Parenthood’s Sanger award. As we know, Hillary Clinton is an excellent judge of character.

Like Sanger, much of Clinton’s life-focus has been about ensuring womyns’ reproductive rights, and that their ‘choices’ are respected, enabled, and paid for by all, including by those bigots who object. Like Sanger, Clinton recognizes that a child’s life only begins when a womyn says it does and that the child, whether born or not, is always and everywhere an intrinsic part of the womyn’s body.

Hillary was a worthy winner of the Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, declaring how awe-inspired she was by this true progressive hero.

Right-wing and Christian bigots have long argued that a unique (in terms of DNA) human being is created at the moment of conception. However, Sanger’s ‘tenacity’, ‘vision’ and ‘courage’ has enabled these spurious arguments to be disregarded and dismembered like a cluster of useless cells.

Having lost the reproductive-rights battle, the bigots have shifted the battlefield by using outright character-assassination against Sanger. They have the audacity to claim that Sanger was a eugenicist, a racist who referred to people of color as ‘human weeds’ who should be ‘exterminated’ and someone who even collaborated with the KKK to promote her ‘evil program’. As we say so often in such matters, extraordinary accusations require extraordinary proof.

In the first place, we are sure that these claims are without merit given how honoured Hillary was to receive the Sangar award. That should really close the debate forever, but, in the interests of examining these ridiculous and fallacious claims with an open mind, let’s begin.

The word ‘eugenics’ is forever associated with the Nazis’ desire to promote a ‘master-race’, a way of eliminating so-called ‘feeble minded, reckless breeders…spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Although this last quote is correctly atributed to Sanger, she was not a Nazi, however, and so it is unfair to accuse her in this way. Her only desire was that every born human being would have access to the same advantages as she did. If this was an unlikely outcome for the potential human, it was better to ‘cut it in the bud’ than allow misery to prevail. What could be wrong with that?

As for the racism charge, we recall the quote that is attributed to Sanger: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population“. Whilst it is possible she said this, the meaning of her quote is twisted. The only reason that she did not want this ‘word to go out’ was because that ‘word’ would be false. The truth is that she had great respect for people of color and actually viewed white men as the real enemy, even if there is no evidence to support this fact. This is precisely why Hillary’s endorsement matters. In researching this article, we can see that many Sanger quotes have been taken entirely out of context but please be assured we are working closely with the Ministry of Truth on this.

Speaking of white men, what are we to make of the meeting with the KKK?

Unlike Thatcher, this Margaret sought to build bridges, even if it meant meeting the KKK

Again, the answer is simple: whilst Sanger deeply despised racists like the Klan, she nonetheless sought to build bridges everywhere she went even if this brought criticism afterwards. This makes her an incredibly brave womyn who was prepared to sacrifice her reputation in the interests of the common good. Wow!

To close this article, we are delighted to see that Chelsea Clinton has written a new book called “Governing Global Health: who runs the world and why?” Whilst we are open-minded about the idea of re-incarnation, could it be true that Chelsea is the re-born Margaret Sangar? We can only hope.

Excellent article Pbier. Using identity politics, we know that Margaret was a good person because she was a womyn, a feminist and a Democrat, who supported womyns’ right to choose whether their fetus is human or not, and at what point it is no longer OK to terminate it.

When it comes to the KKK and racism, I just say, let’s stop looking at the past and instead look to the future. This is how “The View” responded to the racist Anne Coulter accusing the Democratic party of being the main supporters of slavery. When it’s convenient to progressives, we should constantly bring up the past. But when it’s inconvenient to progressives, we should should instead look to the future.

The RIGHT TO CHOOSE is a FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT. Not only is it EXPLICITLY in the Constitution in the penumbras of the Fourteenth Amendment (it says “liberty”!!! — what else could it mean???), but people have long exercised the right to choose. For example, the Ammonites and other Canaanite People of Color had a practice of passing their “seed” through “the fire to Molech.” That is obviously a reference to the “right to choose”!!!

Chelsea for U.N. Women’s Czar!!!

Precisely. When a fetus is inside of a womyn’s body, or in some cases only just born, it is PART OF HER BODY and therefore has no rights! Therefore the only argument we need to make to right wingers is “MY BODY MY CHOICE”, and that pretty much destroys all of their arguments.

AccreditedThinker

We had a quite.. “passionate”… discussion about this in my department recently!

It’s universally understood that a fetus is just an extension of a womyn’s body. But one of our more promising students, Kwame, asked: doesn’t this assume there is no pre-existing privilege relationship between the mother and the father, and, by extension, the fetus itself? What if the mother is White, and the father is Black, Muslim, and/or LGBTQ+, like Kwame xerself ? That would mean a White person would be aborting a fetus that was at least half-Black, half-Muslim, or half LGBTQ+! Haven’t People of Colour had enough genocide perpetrated against them by Whites already? How much more oppression are Minorities – who comprise, let’s not forget, 95% of the world’s population – have to endure?

Furthermore, xe continued, we know gender is a social construct. What if the mother, in addition to being White, is actually male? And the child is female, Black, Muslim, or LGBTQ+? Kawme suggested we need to start thinking in terms of the Oppression Pyramid before deciding whether the right to abort the child is universal, particularly in the case of male mothers, and I have to say; I thought xer made a very convincing argument.

This adds a vital new dimension to the debate, I think most would agree; and in fact a quick show of hands established everyone present thought the University should extend the institute more funding, preferably at the expense of one of the more useless departments, like the Physics Faculty.

AT, During your ongoing debates on this critical matter I want to be sure that an incredibly important detail is not over looked. The fact that it is a white person taking advantage of a minority can’t be overlooked. Interracial Sex is not sex it is rape. Due to the hierarchy the white is taking advantage of the Oppression pyramid. It is no different than if a prison guard has sex with an inmate. It is rape.

Any sex between a man and womyn is RAPE since celebrated feminist Andrea Dworkin said so.

Liberty is actually the right to go from place to place. Way back in the days of feudalism, if you lived on a nobles property you could not leave. Basically you were his taxes providing asset, and his right to your taxes were greater then your right to find a less abusive noble to live under.

Then of course there is the right of “transportation”. That was the right of government to “transport” anyone and everyone it chose to a place of their choosing.

For instance Australia.

One of St Margaret Sanger’s more memorable quotes involves that noblest of savages, the Australian Aborigine:

“It is said a fish as large as a man has a brain no larger than the kernel of an almond. In all fish and reptiles where there is no great brain development, there is also no conscious sexual control. 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. According to one writer, the rapist has just enough brain development to raise him above the animal, but like the animal, when in heat knows no law except nature which impels him to procreate whatever the result. “

Margaret Sanger is truly a Progressive Hero!

trav777

Well, some would say that everything Ms. Sanger said in that paragraph was DEAD ON BALLS ACCURATE TRUTH.

But, as progressives, we must reject even the truth if it stands in the way of progress.

Abos are known for having one use for gasoline, huffing, and sleeping lying in the road despite repeatedly being warned of the dangers. So maybe they totally lack abstract reasoning capacity as shown by their abysmal IQ scores or else WHITE PRIVILEGE.

In many ways the feminism of Margaret Sanger was grounded in a lot of racist facts that have since been eradicated from academic institutions for being inappropriate. Since then, feminism has moved on and is now solely concerned about the REAL rape culture which practiced exclusively by white males. The more Muslims, Africans and Aborigines we have, the less rape culture there is, because the lower the percentage of white males. This what feminism wants.

” In her will, for example, she has asked that her skin be turned into wallets”

She has a simple-minded view of the relationship between people and animals. Pets are toys, to be put on a leash, fed synthetic foods, tagged, neutered, and finally euthanized when old or sick. This may be true in US, but there are many parts of the world where animals are family, and the bonds are much stronger than between humans. The relationship is also a lot more playful. Extra perception of dogs will be useful if there are poisonous snakes, or wild animals around.

If we replace natural pets, with artificial toys, that are shallow, and mechanical, there is more harm to one’s mental health and the environment.
Wearing silk or eating honey will make people provide an environment for silkworms or honey bees. But finding synthetic replacement, will mean more factories, more pollution, and more meaningless work.

She has been very clever in getting movie stars, college students and the media to go along with her. In countries like India, government regulators, and judges have simply fallen for the PETA propaganda.
But there is a backlash now, with people moving away from her idiotic ideas against use of animals for farming or pets.

Also, do you know what is an estimated date of wallet-production? The problem is that if a skin of an old person/animal is used, the product will not be durable. Ms. Ingrid is advised to enter wallet-production cycle earlier, as an old Ingrid could be converted only into sub-par quality merchandise.

drb6, The quantity to be made was not specific. She does not carry a lot of skin mass, like your typical Feminist, so supplies are limited.
My guess is the umbrella stands are already gone but the nuggets are plentiful.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
She is known, in particular, for the media stunts that she organizes to draw attention to animal-protection issues. In her will, for example, she has asked that her skin be turned into wallets, her feet into umbrella stands, and her flesh into “Newkirk Nuggets

Air Conditioning.

Air conditioning is a smaller version of the climate change hoax.
If you believe in air-conditioning, then you will also want climate (i.e. temperature, rainfall, wind) to be kept in a narrow range.
In the tropics, sweating not only cools the body, but eliminates some forms of waste. You need all the temperature variations, small ones when a breeze blows, larger variations over the course of the day, and much bigger variations as seasons change, to keep healthy.
People in western countries with synthetic vitamins, fake food, and no elimination of toxins through sweating because of air-conditioning, end up with cancer, allergies, or other forms of inflammation inside the body.
Crowded air-conditioned places, during winter leads to spread of colds and flu.

If you would say that AC was invented by FUCKING WHITE MALES, then progressives would agree with you and stop using it. Phrasing like you do, there is nothing wrong with AC.

I would also advise against taking any synthetic vitamins, despite scientific data showing that lack of D vitamin causes rickets, which was quite wide-spread before so-called “civilization”. Problem with vitamin D is that its method for industrial production was developed – guess by whom? – a FUCKING WHITE MALE from Wisconsin.

trav777

how about Scurvy? Or smallpox…

caw

You mean there are not enough fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C?
Scurvy might have been a disease of the sailors, foolish enough not to take sources of vitamin C with them. It is not something that chinese or indian sailors have recorded, even on their long trips.

Rickets from lack of vitamin D, is also not common.
B vitamins depend on gut bacteria. In fact most modern deficiencies might have to do with gut bacteria.

Don’t give up on synthetic vitamins or antibiotics. If you don’t know what you are doing, you’ll end up sick or dead.

But there is a far better way to life. It looks like a myth today, because of the heavy dose of propaganda by the drug companies.

I’ll skip smallpox, except to say that people who got cow pox became immune to it.

Take your synthetic vitamins, live in air-conditioned spaces, that is all ok with me. There are times when modern interventions are useful. Inventions by whites are good in a relative sense, not absolutely good everywhere, that you should look down on those who don’t use them.

I’m just putting an alternative view point, that has nothing to do with whites.
Jock itch is not common in tropics where people wear loose clothing. But if you prefer suit, coat and tie in the tropics, or jeans, then you’ll get it.
You might even get these in temperate regions with air-conditioning. It has more to do with too much clothing, stress and sweating in closed spaces.
