Margaret Sanger is viewed as a champion of birth control rights and founder of Planned Parenthood. She is a feminist icon and revolutionary. But what were her real motivations? Her own words, which are below, speak for themselves:
On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people.
On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12.
At this point, you may be wondering what the hell is going on here? Isn't this horrible feminist cow long dead and discredited? Who the hell cares about Margaret Sanger except for some dried up shrews like Gloria Steinem? Well, you would have thought that would be the case, unless you have come across the incompetent NYC Mayor's new schools chancellor, Cathleen Punty Black. Her friends call her Cathie, but I prefer Cunty. This arrogant whore is basically the new Margaret Sanger.
When she was orginally selected to be NYC School Chancellor, she lacked the basic credentials for the job. She needed a waiver to even get the job. But that didn't stop Mikie Bloomberg from pushing her through without a public search for a job that requires someone with strong management skills and an interest in public education.
Cunty, on the other hand, has no experience in public education and was displaced from her position at Hearst Corporation. She was so bored shopping at Bergdorfs with her multi-million dollar severance package that Bloomberg took it upon himself to find her a position, which NYC taxpayers will be financing.
So far, Cunty has equipped herself fantastically and demonstrated her views of those who attend NYC public schools. At a hearing in January on school overcrowding, Black quipped that the solution to overcrowing in the classrooms may be birth control. If you think that was bad, she went further and stipulated that making decisions about classroom space is like "Sophie's Choice." Thus, her job is so hard that is like deciding which child to send to the concentration camp.
Perhaps if Cunty had any experience for the job she was chosen for, making decisions about school overcrowing would not be so difficult. Furthermore, what she failed to mention is why schools in NYC have become so overcrowded. For many New Yorkers trying to get their children into Kindergarten, there are now waiting lists for the local public schools.
I realize Bloomberg would like to claim it is because he has done so much for the quality of schools that people can't get enough of them, but that would be like claiming that he did a good job cleaning up the snow after the December blizzard, when he was off in Bermuda at his multi-million dollar home, while the real New Yorkers were burried in snow and piles of garbage.
But what has really happened was that Bloomberg let all his billionairre friends in real estate develop all these new real estate ventures in New York in exchange for tax breaks, but he failed to build the infrastucture to support the increased population. Thus, birth control had nothing to do with it as Cunty suggested. It is greed and showering friends with financial incentives.
This was an important priority for Bloomie so that he could increase his real estate tax collections to finance all the giveaways he provided to the municipal unions. Bloomie likes to claim that he is a great fiscal manager, but if that was the case, New York City would not have raised property taxes by over 50% since 2001 since his first term in office. But now that the real estate market is slow, he can't finance his deficits and incompetence with the same gusto.
Cunty apologized for her racial eugenics comments almost immediately, I wonder if that was another "Sophie's Choice" that she had to make. But Cunty is the gift that keeps on giving. Recently, at hearings on February 1 and 3 about failing schools, Cunty mocked the audience for their boisterous reaction to the closings. Under her breath, she was probably thinking how horrendous it was that she had to put up with all these Negros and Spics who are mad about closing schools. Life was so much easier at Hearst when every one was white. Poor Cunty!
Bloomie seconded her and condemned those who were outspoken for being so revolting. In other words, how dare these uppity blacks are for questioning their grand plans to make their lives better? This raises another question. Bloomberg claims he has dramatically improved the NYC public school system. He boasted about the improved test scores on the state standardized tests and of the over 65% high school graduation rate. However, like every good crony capitalist, Bloomberg knows how to cook the books with Enron like finesse. How else do you think he earned all those undeserved billions that financed his purchase of the NYC mayoralty?
In the Summer of 2010, we learned that the State Board of Education had to adjust all the state achievement tests because the US Department of Education found the tests to be insufficient and there was significant grade inflation. Thus, when this new methodology was implemented to correct the distortion, we learned that test scores in NYC remained at the same level as they were before Bloomberg took over the schools seven years ago. Not only that, we just learned this week that the number of students graduating from NYC high schools who are ready for college stands at about 23%. Most of these students need remedial classes when they get to college. Thus, Bloomberg can talk of his high graduation rates, but what good are they when little Pedro or Juanita can't read or write when they get to college.
Obviously, Cunty, with Bloomberg's tacit approval, think we are better off trying to abort or sterilize all these children who are making them look bad. No matter how much Bloomberg tried to turn the public education system into a corporation, his methods are failing. He has had no notable achievements in improving the schools as noted by the stagnant test scores. In corporate Amerika, bodies start rolling when the profits are down. Thus, the solution for having underachieving students is to promote birth control to the ignorant masses via Margaret Sanger.
If corporate Amerika is such a magnificent model for efficiency and effectiveness, how do we explain the last few years where we have all witnessed the benefits of corporate Amerika. We have seen unbridled greed and risk taking result in devastating economic consequences. This had nothing to do with free market capitalism. This had all to do with corrupt corporate barons who have bought and paid for all the politicians in Washington who gave them a pass when it came time to regulate and investigate their slimy actions. Remember, Madoff was best friends with Clinton's SEC Commissioner.
Thus, when arrogant assholes like Bloomberg can't even get the streets plowed after a snow storm, you have to wonder why New Yorkers would tolerate him running our schools into the ground. The crony capitalist model has been an unmitigated failure and is nothing but our version of a totalitarian communism system. As if such tactics would work in reforming education.
Bloomberg and Cunty have been miserable failures. How anyone with half a brain would want to entrust them with management of our schools is beyond me? But unlike the bitter small town American who cling to their guns, religion and bigotry, New Yorkers are just so much smarter. They see the widsom in re-electing this petty dictator even when he subverted term limits to get elected, not to mention spending more money per vote than any politician in American History.
Recently, Bloomberg has been attacked in the media because he is too good to let people know where is on weekends. He has homes in Paris, Bermuda and Colorado. If he wants to take a break and let snow and garbage pile up on the streets, who are we to complain. If he wants to limit our salt and trans-fat intake, that's your problem. After all, too much fat ruins the foie gras. If you want to smoke, that is also out if the Emperor who wears no Clothes doesn't like it.
What's next? I understand that Bloomberg also doesn't like penises since his is so puny. It will only be a matter of time before he starts chopping that appendage in the public square. This is what happens when the sophisticated New York crowd gets bought like a private plane by an incompetent dictator who lucked out in business through Soros' like dirty tricks. But now that the chickens have come home to roost, we can all see what that has gotten us.
