Video: Scozzafava accepts Margaret Sanger Award

posted at 11:38 am on October 26, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

How much of a “Reagan Republican” is Dede Scozzafava, running as the endorsed Republican candidate in the NY23 special Congressional election? Maybe Newt Gingrich should have done a little more research before jumping into this race with both feet — or better yet, that’s what the county GOP officials who put their heads together to come up with Scozzafava in the first place should have done. It’s one thing to be pro-choice out of a sense of libertarianism, but another entirely to be a Margaret Sanger acolyte … and March 2008 award winner:

As Kathryn Jean Lopez says, Congress hardly needs another Sanger fan. After the Mona Lisa Project exposed so many of these Planned Parenthood offices as lawbreakers and exploiters of potentially abused young girls for profit, this connection should have been a red flag to the GOP.

Update: This got covered by Michelle last week, and by Madison Conservative in our Green Room.

LibTired on October 26, 2009 at 11:41 AM

All the bogus cries of “Racist!” water down the word for when we really do meet a genuine racist like Sanger. Why would anyone accept an award that bears her name?

pedestrian on October 26, 2009 at 11:42 AM

Next she’ll come out in favor of ethnic cleansing.

Hoffman now leading, Scozzafava in 3rd according to C4G polling.

Hoffman – 31.3%
Owens – 27.0%
Scozzafava – 19.7%

That’s pretty much what the Sanger award is for, isn’t it?

jwolf on October 26, 2009 at 11:46 AM

eh; it’s a stepping stone… first the Sanger Award, then the Mengele… eventually she’ll do so little as to qualify for a Nobel.

hindmost on October 26, 2009 at 11:46 AM

Here’s the proper quote, BTW:

“How small of all that human hearts endure, That part which laws or kings can cause or cure! Still to ourselves in every place consigned, Our own felicity we make or find. With secret course, which no loud storms annoy, Glides the smooth current of domestic joy.”

Dr. Samuel Johnson.

Not sure why she’d be quoting Samuel Johnson, since unlike her, he was actually a conservative.

mcg on October 26, 2009 at 11:46 AM

it’s time for Scozzafava to drop out or face an embarrassing defeat!

Washington – A poll released today by the Club for Growth shows Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman surging into the lead in the special election in New York’s 23rd congressional district to replace John McHugh, the former congressman who recently became Secretary of the Army.

The poll of 300 likely voters, conducted October 24-25, 2009, shows Conservative Doug Hoffman at 31.3%, Democrat Bill Owens at 27.0%, Republican Dede Scozzafava at 19.7%, and 22% undecided. The poll’s margin of error is +/- 5.66%. No information was provided about any of the candidates prior to the ballot question.

This is the third poll done for the Club for Growth in the NY-23 special election, and Doug Hoffman is the only candidate to show an increase in his support levels in each successive poll. The momentum in the race is clearly with Hoffman.

http://www.clubforgrowth.org/2009/10/cfg_poll_hoffman_leading_in_ny.php

Bulldogger on October 26, 2009 at 11:47 AM

Hoffman should make an ad out her praising Planned Parenthood and receiving the award.

fourdeucer on October 26, 2009 at 11:47 AM

Only in New York would someone this blatantly liberal be termed a “republican.” Feh.

Mad Mad Monica on October 26, 2009 at 11:48 AM

If this C4G poll is accurate, it’s time to shift fire in the last week of the campaign – Scozzafava is now irrelevant, time to move on to taking down the choice of the NYC fatcats, Owens!

Hoffman CAN win!

Red Cloud on October 26, 2009 at 11:48 AM

Yeah, as I normally tow the GOP line…normally…She’s gotta go. I would think it would be hard for the GOP to retract their endorsement (has this been done before?) but I’m confident the voters in her district will make the right choice.

JetBoy on October 26, 2009 at 11:49 AM

Man, the GOP is practically being handed the 2010 election. It only needs to up real, conservative candidates and play back all of obummers lies. And they are screwing it up in the name of inclusiveness. Get a clue people, Conservatism IS inclusive. It wants EVERYBODY to have a chance and succeed and live the American Dream! Why can’t the idiot republicans make this message clear??

Spectreman on October 26, 2009 at 11:49 AM

Scozzafava has to withdraw and she needs to take Michael Steele with her. Steele has been nothing but an unmitigated disaster. This is beyond ridiculous.

This is for you. by G.K. Chesterton

If trees were tall and grasses short,
As in some crazy tale,
If here and there a sea were blue
Beyond the breaking pale,

If a fixed fire hung in the air
To warm me one day through,
If deep green hair grew on great hills,
I know what I should do.

In dark I lie; dreaming that there
Are great eyes cold or kind,
And twisted streets and silent doors,
And living men behind.

Let storm clouds come: better an hour,
And leave to weep and fight,
Than all the ages I have ruled
The empires of the night.

I think that if they gave me leave
Within the world to stand,
I would be good through all the day
I spent in fairyland.

They should not hear a word from me
Of selfishness or scorn,
If only I could find the door,
If only I were born.

He’s finished. The conservative base was all he had going for him and that’s been squandered thanks to NY-23(along with the photo ops with Pelosi and Sharpton). It’s not like he’s all that popular with independents and Dems dating back to his days as House Speaker.

I gotta give credit where it’s due, George Stephanopoulos did a great job getting Gibson’s ignorance of ACORN off the table with a quick “let’s set that aside”. He’s an effective Press Secretary for Obama.

I’m not! I am sick to death of both sides using that as an effective wedge issue.

We’re letting other real issues go by the wayside when we let the insiders pull this. And frankly, I think, this article is doing just that.

That issue is NOT the major problem facing Congress this year.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Not really. Sanger was for the most part against it.

“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.”

This is however a Margaret Sanger issue.

“The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind.”

You are right. Maraget Sanger was a great person. She only wanted to improve the conditions for blacks by sterilizing them and convincing them not to procreate./sarcasm

And the Kennedy family gave their daughter a lobotomy. I really don’t like judging past decisions quite so harshly.

It was an awful life in the past for people encouraged to institutionalize mentally disabled people. It was worse in poor areas. People were often locked in attics.

The fact is that people do the best they can. The one thing I do NOT like about conservatives is judgmentalism. It’s pretty darn rampant.

It is appalling that there is even an award named after Margaret Sanger and it is appalling still that the general population has no idea that she and Planned Parenthood are all about eugenics.
Period.
This wingie dingie nut Scuzzyfava and Newt ought to both be finshed by this debacle. But I almost hope Newt is positioning himself for a run. It will be interesting to see him eliminated once and for all.

I don’t agree with Newt on probably 40% of his stances, but I do respect him. He’s one of the best when it comes to articulating conservative viewpoints.

His endorsement? Not gold-plated. Neither is Palin’s. Or anyone’s.

Endorsements are just that….and voters take them in stride, I think. I think they are good at getting attention drawn to the candidate. If people like what they hear, they’ll vote for the candidate. If not, they won’t.

Mr. Davis and I got into quite the spat via email during the Sarah Palin/Letterman bit. I’ve learned to listen to him with quite a large grain of salt, if I listen to him at all. I heard he railed against conservatives backing Mr. Hoffman; I didn’t hear the rant personally. But if he did, it says alot about where his priorities stand.

It’s clear who the DNCC thinks is the bigger threat in the race as they’re running attack ads against Hoffman and ignoring the Sanger-laureate.

CDeb on October 26, 2009 at 12:15 PM

BTW Ann, that was a pretty judgemental post there. Want to tell us again how being judgemental is so awfull.

I know. I’ve never figured out how to express that without drawing that criticism.

I do think there’s a difference between using judgment and being judgmental.

But I guess that has to be explicated through numerous examples.

I try NOT to judge those of you who make anti-abortion the center of your politics.

I am not afraid to tell you that I think it’s a wedge issue, it has been the focal point for some people for FAR too long, and it’s time, in my opinion, to discuss other issues.

I do think the issue has led to actual murder. That’s awful.

I personally refuse to let it define ANY politics today. I grit my teeth sometimes with the left. They ALSO do the the same. They trot out some hocus-pocus vote and “prove” the person isn’t liberal. Ditto for the right.

I’m tired of both sides on this issue.

Who are you to shout “no” at an 11 year old girl who only wants to be a human trampoline for drunk middle aged men and shatter her dreams?

NoDonkey on October 26, 2009 at 12:19 PM

That’s extrapolating to an absurd point.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:21 PM

Ok who are you, and what have you done with AnninCA? : )

Annietxgrl on October 26, 2009 at 12:20 PM

Actually, I’ve been stating this, in many ways, for 18 months.

You just probably have stereotyped me due to other issues.

(I remain for public option.)

All the bogus cries of “Racist!” water down the word for when we really do meet a genuine racist like Sanger. Why would anyone accept an award that bears her name?

Because they can bury her vile racism under the “purity” of abortion. That is the sacrament of liberalism and its glory shines above all else. Also, racism is easily ignored in the home of true racism.

I stand corrected, eviscerating live human infants in the womb is just so mainstream, how could I be so thoughtless?

Because most people do not ignore history.

Our forefathers owned slaves. Do you dismiss them as unworthy because of this?

Of course not.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:28 PM

Oh good gravy, the abortion issue again?

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 11:50 AM

It’s one thing to be pro-choice out of a sense of libertarianism, but another entirely to be a Margaret Sanger acolyte

AnninCA et al: Forget hearing the message again, and forget politics. Abortion is murder, so why not focus on morality instead of murder?

NoDonkey on October 26, 2009 at 12:26 PM

Whatever. I honestly do not relate in the least with those of you obsessed about this issue.

Judge away.

I’ll never get it.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:29 PM

Jeez Dede, you accepted that award?
You look up to Sanger’s thinking?
Whoa.

NoDonkey on October 26, 2009 at 12:26 PM

It’s just not high on my morality list.

I share common ground with people appalled by ACORN’s approval of the sex trade, abusing young women/men.

I think there’s plenty of common meeting ground, in other words, or morality.

Frankly, not on this issue.

It never has made sense to me. Never.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:32 PM

It is really amazing. Margaret Sanger was a raciest and was about eugenics. How minorities do not see this is amazing. How could the GOP allow this and support her?

It really amazes me.

Octavia on October 26, 2009 at 12:12 PM

The Left controls the media. While they are generally supportive of eugenics in private, they realize it still has a stigma. So, any reference to her in their media will treat her as an early feminist and humanitarian without discussing what are actually beliefs were.

It is like Leftist Taqiyya.

Because you are a heartless, brainless, void of a human being, perhaps?

But at least you’re not judgemental. And that counts for something.

NoDonkey on October 26, 2009 at 12:33 PM

I just am amazed that people think this way over abortion in this day and age.

I accept it. Obviously, some of you really do, let that control your voting, and make it your devotion in life.

But I’ll never get it.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:33 PM

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:29 PM

What’s so hard to understand about taking a human life?????????

chai on October 26, 2009 at 12:34 PM

The fact is that people do the best they can. The one thing I do NOT like about conservatives is judgmentalism. It’s pretty darn rampant.

AnninCA on October 26, 2009 at 12:03 PM

Isn’t every person with a strongly held opinion “judgemental”? Look at the anti-Prop 8 protesters or Global Warmists as a good example of the Leftwing side of things…
