Media Matter's is all in a flutter about Bill Bennett and his statements on his radio show Morning in America:
"Bennett, on his radio show, "Morning in America," was answering a caller's question when he took issue with the hypothesis put forth in a recent book that one reason crime is down is that abortion is up.
"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down," said Bennett, author of "The Book of Virtues."
He went on to call that "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."
Responding later to criticism, Bennett said his comments had been mischaracterized and that his point was that the idea of supporting abortion to reduce crime was "morally reprehensible."
That's the way I I took it after listening to the whole show. Amazing how that works eh?
Ok, so what's the beef? No where.
But typically, as the left is known to do, they are jumping all over this, trying to throw their "racism" mantra around again.
Let's be clear - they have no room to talk.
Who is - by and large - the most racist political party in American?
Read here. The evidence is clear, over history the one party that has consistantly shown a racist and intollerant attititude and indeed showed resistance to the 1964 Civil Rights Law and the 1965 Voter's Right act - it's the Democratic Party.
Not to mention for Democrats to get in a flutter about this statement when this "Group" is volunteering to kill more kids (specifically black), is astounding.
Where is Media Matters? Where is Henry Reid? Nancy Pelosi?.....
Like the Bible says, "Thou brood of vipers, thou Hypocrites!"
By the way Mr. Rangel
Bull Conner was a Democrat. In fact so was George Wallace and Lester Maddox.....oh, and Robert KKK Byrd. Yep, for Democrats to be jumping on Bennett for being "racist", when the evidence is quite to the contrary, and even considering their own history, well, it's like calling the kettle _____.
Tracked: Narcissistic views on News/Politics, also with Cpt Ed.
