I know it was you, Newt.

Meet Dede Scozzofava. She’s one of the potential Republican candidates entering the special election to replace John McHugh’s congressional seat. She won the prestigious Margaret Sanger award. Plus…I mean, she’s a sweetie.
I mean, look at her! She’s got warmth and compassion oozing from every pore! Sure, a movement existed just months ago to draft her as a Democrat because she would vote like Hillary Clinton, but pish tush. Now, conversely, let’s look at bad ol’ Doug Hoffman, another candidate who is also running.
Oh, what a stick in the mud this guy looks like. Seriously. He’s not even smiling, emanating the power of a thousand rainbows. Finally, there’s this lady.
Ohhh, ha ha ha! The joke’s on me! This isn’t a candidate for Congress! This is Margaret Sanger! The lady whose award darling Dede won! Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m in my twenties…and I don’t remember reading much about this lady in high school…or college, for that matter. Well, a while ago, I did a little research on eugenics, this wonderful cultural and scientific movement in the early 20th century that spread all over the Western world, but particularly took root in the United States. Oh, and Germany.
In a nutshell, eugenics went like this: The superior human beings should be allowed to breed, and the inferior ones should…well…die. All they’re doing is mucking up the gene pool. However, just outright killing them might look kinda shady. So, how about we sterilize all these…um…let’s call them “undesirables.” What are undesirables? Oh, you know…the mentally handicapped(and those with low grades in school). Criminals. Prostitutes. Epileptics. The f***ing poor:
It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization. For upon the foundation of an enlightened and voluntary motherhood shall a future civilization emerge.
- Margaret Sanger’s pamphlet “What Every Boy and Girl Should Know”, 1915
Let’s just round them up, take them into a building, and forcibly operate on them to the extent that they can no longer bear children, because we know better. I hear it’s going remarkably well overseas! You know what else this wonderful ideology could achieve? It could get rid of those pesky black people!
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon
Oh, absolutely. Imagine if they rose up and refused to be part of a giant “purification” movement! That might avert the possibility that one day, the black population would account for over one-third of all abortions, despite being only 12% of the population! We can’t let that great achievement get away from us just because they think they’re equal to us!
So, decades later, an award named after one lovely woman is accepted by another lovely woman, Dede Scozzafava, and she’s just tickled about it. Newt Gingrich and the National Republican Congressional Committee are just tickled about it. Anyone else tickled about it?
