The Silver Lake Conspiracy: Did Margaret Sanger, the Ku Klux Klan and Planned Parenthood Conspire to Eliminate the Black Race

In 1926, Margaret Sanger (the foundress of Planned Parenthood) was the keynote speaker at a Ku Klux Klan Rally in Silver Lake, New Jersey. As a result of this speech, Sanger immediately received at least a dozen more invitations to speak to similar groups.

How do we know this?

Margaret Sanger admits it in her own Autobiography:

Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and 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, P.366)

Several years later, Margaret Sanger wrote the following in a letter to Clarence Gamble:

"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, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.

Eighty years after Margaret Sanger's Historic speech to the Ku Klux Klan, the following situation exists:

*A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby.

*Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.

*Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

*Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.

*Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

*About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

You are completely misinterpreting Sanger's quote. She is not saying that she wants to exterminate the black race. She imagined a world where only people physically able and financially secure would reproduce. During the time Sanger was campaigning for birth control, minorities were not given the same rights and privileges as whites. Therefore, they were not as fit to support a large family because they were not allowed the means to do so. She wanted to provide ALL women the right to choose whether or not they wanted to be mothers and if so, how many children they would have. The quote "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." Is not saying that she is trying to exterminate the negro population and she doesn’t want people to find out, but rather she doesn’t want people to misinterpret her work as this (exactly what you are doing) and the best way to let the negro population know that this is not her intent is through a partnership with ministers who could explain the real goal to confused and/or offended blacks (because this would be the best means to reach them and a minister would be considered a reliable source to them.)
She didn’t want to stop just poor black women from reproducing; she felt the same way about poor white women. Her goal was not to keep women who wanted children from having them, but rather to give women the option to choose whether or not they have children, and if so, control over how many they have.
Also, the fact that you attribute the abortion rates of blacks to Sanger’s speech at KKK is absolutely absurd. There are many different factors that contribute to these statistics and to put blame on a speech made over 70 years ago is ridiculous.

When you view the profound piles of aborted fetus since the kickoff of planned parenthood, it is absurd, wretching, and an adbomination! Certainly it did not then and does not today carry the stamp of approval of any Christian Religion, organized or otherwise!!!

And Hillary Clinton said she was her hero.

Trying to pretend that Sangeler was not a raciest when many documents exist that says she was is an attempt to revise history. And I am suspect of anyone who tries to deny this perhaps they just agree with her raciest views of eliminating the black race.

Planned parenthood did not perform abortions until 7 years after Sanger died.

Margaret Sanger made it plain she offered contraception as an alternative to abortion, which she was was dangerous and viscious.

As to the racial issues, I get pure racists comments from right wingers all the time. Mongrel, feral, etc.

Some even lauded the death of Michael Brown as eliminating another feral animal.

Look at all the quotes used to accuse Sanger. They are the exact same quote, exactly, not even a bit longer or shorter. There is never a single reference to the original source, no way to check it, no context.

Basic rule I learned for dealing with quotations I learned very long ago, the shorter the quotation the more likely it is fake.

By spreading unsupported claims that appear to be lies you just lose credibility.

Sanger was a eugenist. Do you understand what that means? She was a heavy fan of scientific racism
