Of Pots and Kettles

Monday night on Hannity's show, Reverend Al Sharpton for reasons that remain unclear, was enraged at Senator Rick Santorum's comments that as a black man, President Obama ought to show more concern for the unborn victims of abortion.

The Reverend consumed most of the air time with his confusing street confrontation act and was unmoved by Santorum's point that abortion is legal for the same reason slavery was tolerated: both the slave and the unborn are not considered full "persons" entitled to the protection of the law.

Sharpton was likewise unconcerned with the fact that if it weren't for abortion, the black population would be twice what it is today. Nor was he bothered that a fetus in a black mother's womb is 5 times more likely to suffer destruction in an abortion than one in a white woman.

Sharpton also dodged Hannity's asking him if he was pro-choice. After listening to Sharpton's barrage of doubletalk it's still hard to see why he was so upset with Santorum. What's not hard to see is he appears far more at peace with the quiet destruction of black people in his own back yard.

It was Margaret Sanger herself who wrote in 1939:

We do not want 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.

Could it be?
