Whenever it seems President Obama can sink no lower, he outdoes himself.
In a show of moral obtuseness worthy of the Marquis de Sade, Obama on Friday addressed a gathering of Planned Parenthood members and supporters, the first sitting president to do so.
Obama predictably blasted critics of Planned Parenthood, complaining that they want to take the country back to the 1950s.
He thanked Planned Parenthood for its nearly 100 years of service to women who want to kill their babies.
The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an open advocate of eugenics, the notion of “perfecting” a society by killing or breeding out undesireables, meaning in Sanger’s thinking anyone who was poor, black or Latino.
Nearly 100 years later, after having led a taxpayer-assisted genocide against the poor and the non-white, we are witnesses to the spectacle of a black president praising Planned Parenthood for its role in killing more than 50,000(???) black babies alone in the years since Roe v. Wade.
What’s more, Obama had the gall to do it during the height of the Dr. Kurt(???) Gosnell trial, which has seen testimony that babies who had been born healthy had their necks snapped or spinal cords cut. Some of them screamed and struggled as the doctor or his assistants tried to kill them.
Planned Parenthood officials have admitted knowing about complaints about Gosnell’s clinic of horrors and looking the other way.
Planned Parenthood is technically a nonprofit organization, but that just means you end the year with a zero balance on your ledger. The multibillion-dollar operation has made many doctors and administrators very well off.
Officials with the group protest that abortions aren’t their main purpose, that they provide medical care and advice to girls and women. The advice includes programs that encourage teens to have unmarried sex (but use a condom, kids) with multiple partners, then when a girl gets pregnant it encourages her to get an abortion. The group has historically resisted any legislation that would require it to provide information about adoption.
Planned Parenthood profits from killing babies any way you look at it. In Obama’s world, that’s an admirable thing.
That’s why the president closed his speech by telling the Planned Parenthood representatives, “God bless you.”
It would have been far more appropriate to paraphrase Obama’s mentor, Jeremiah Wright: “No, no, no! Not God bless Planned Parenthood. God damn Planned Parenthood.”
