So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. – James 1:19-20
Liberals managed to pressure South Carolina lawmakers to remove the Confederate flag from the state house because a white man in Charleston killed black people in a church. They’re calling for lawmakers to remove Confederate monuments and even dig up Confederate graves.
Now a group has called for the removal of a black monument from the South Carolina state house grounds, because it was erected as a compromise to keep the Confederate flag flying.
Where will it end? If we’re going to tear down reminders of people who held views back in the day that are unpopular in 2015, you could argue for the destruction of the entire country. Just wipe “racist” America off the map.
But not even liberals want to do that. Where else could they make up things to complain about and denounce ideas that protect their right to complain and denounce? Despite America’s history of slavery and government-mandated racial segregation, and the sad reality of abortion and the redefinition of marriage to the point of absurdity, this is still the best country on the planet.
Pro-lifers are proving that two can play at the removal game. A group of black pastors asked the National Portrait Gallery to remove a bust of Margaret Sanger from its “Struggle for Justice” exhibit. Led by E.W. Jackson, the group wrote that Sanger was a eugenist and no champion of justice. She had “an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers. Also, the notorious ‘Negro Project’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate, black births, was her brainchild.”
This request comes in the wake of five videos that show Planned Parenthood executives discussing and haggling over the sale of aborted-baby body parts. The videos also show lower-level employees picking through dead babies for intact body parts.
Now that the “Black Lives Matter” narrative is here to stay for the time being, no matter how disingenuous and cynical, pro-lifers can co-opt it to save unborn lives. The pastors wrote that “elective abortion remains the number one cause of death among black Americans, higher than all other causes combined…Sanger was no hero.”
It doesn’t end there. A group of black pro-lifers have called for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood. They’re “outraged” that President Barack Obama won’t protect the unborn and vowed to veto efforts to bar taxpayer dollars from funding the abortion mill.
