TheHayride: If New Orleans officials are truly interested in getting rid of racist iconography that has been used to generate money, they do not have to look any further than Planned Parenthood.
After news broke yesterday that New Orleans officials would be taking a good look at all Confederacy iconography in the city, including the statues of Robert E. Lee in Lee Circle and Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard in City Park, there has been uproar from social media.
It seems that New Orleans’ public officials, which are primarily Democrats, are quick to assume that all Confederacy-related symbols are inherently racist.
Even if this is true, they should take a good look at the background and business practices of Planned Parenthood, which are undeniably racist.
Take for instance Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, who is heralded by the Left for being a women’s rights activist and the first major proponent of birth control.
What is often left out and denied by Planned Parenthood is Sanger’s long history of racism and eugenics.
