Sanger was a progressive and she is forgiven anything and everything.

A conservative must be pure as the driven snow, and even then he will accused of thought crimes.

Where did you find this? Silver Lake, NJ, the sign says. Just a bunch of ignorant redneck southerners. Northwest of New York City, according to Mapquest.

Yes, please give us the source…I want to make certain that it is not faked, and then exploit the living HECK out of it…woo hoo!

Alas, philosoph, you may be right. It looks like a scan of an old newspaper page, but close examination reveals the print on the back side is upside down. And the registeredmedia.com credit leads to a headline which says “Humor, Satire, Parody News & Discussions.”

Margaret Sanger was, of course, against reproduction of the “unfit” which included, in her definition, blacks, among others.

Tastes like a P-shop. Sanger’s image is too crisp compared to her soulmates’, and the font and perspective on the sign is wrong.

Don’t know whether the photo is legit, but Sanger did in fact speak to the KKK:

Thanks, Matt+. Doesn’t surprise me at all that Sanger would have spoken to the KKK in the service of her “gospel.” The excerpt from her diary quoted at your link says she was cautious about not mentioning “abortion” to the delicate ladies of the KKK.

I would like to know if the photo is legit, or “fake but accurate,” though. If this is going around the net, somebody with expertise will tell us.

Yes, I think that it is pretty clearly a fake photo. However, as Matt Kennedy pointed out, it has a basis in fact.

Even today, Sanger’s grandchildren [sic], with the assistance of tax money, of course, are working to scrub her memory. “Out, damned spot!”

this is the type of stuff that winston smith
would flush down memory hole.(if is true or not)

I noticed that Sanger’s account which Matt+ linked to refers to a talk she gave at Silver Lake, NJ. So maybe the picture is legitimate, Katherine!

It was part of a contest to show her speech to the KKK in an artistic way.

Yes, Sanger spoke to KKK groups.

Sanger and Hitler never met, but their ideas were congruent and came into being about the same time. They were both white supremacists and believed non-whites were inferior and unfit to multiply, were a threat to society and expendable, and their numbers should be limited/altered by sterlization, contraception or abortion (Sanger)/extermination (Hitler).

In spite of their similarity of thought, Sanger was appalled by Hitler’s military aggression and violence and wrote in one of her diaries about a dream/nightmare she had about Hitler:”[Tucson, Ariz.] Feb 3rd 1942. – Last night I dreamed of Hitler–- Saw him in a room so close that I could see his eyes wink. Dream not very clear at 3 Am. just awoke–- But house I was in with others raided by Nazis. I hid under a table with others but one womans leg was discovered then we all were brought forth. Hitler came in to execute war plans & operations using this house as his base. A bird flew into the room from the window & lighted near me-– It was white & a dove-– Hitler caught it held it up high over my head & told me to pick out a feather–-I did so & awakened.”

One online source claims Sanger was an alcohol and demerol addict.

In another newspaper clipping, Margaret Sanger writes about ‘Woman and The New Race’ (1922).

Some claim Sanger inspired Hitler, not the other way around.

No, Allen Lewis, alas, it must be a fake. Why would all the hooded people be saluting Sanger? And the state abbreviation “NJ” came in with the innovation of zip codes and automated postal reading equipment decades later.

Jonah Golberg’s “Liberal Fascism” explores the parallels between American Progressives, including Sanger, and European socialists/fascists (national socialists as distinguished from international socialists, i.e., communists). Many American socialists and progressives admired aspects of both the Communist and Fascist regimes in Europe. They were also prone to ignore or deny the humanitarian horror reports. While some mainstream people in America were willing to sanction forced sterilization of the “unfit,” happily the Nazi insanity of a “final solution” did not occur here, probably, as Goldberg suggests, because of American culture which would not tolerate mass murder. The ideological connections are there, but it would be a stretch to posit a direct link from American Progressives to the Nazi atrocities.

It is fake and it is freely acknowledged as such. See my link above.

Gosh, Sanger was TALL!

Or KKK women are all midgets.

Well the photo is fake. But she did speak to a KKK group at Silver Lake.

@FW Ken – looks to me as if she is standing on a table in the photo.

Whether the picture is a fake or not does not really matter. Sanger was one of those people who think they know better than anyone else and were perfectly willing to use the power of the Federal Government to implement their plans.

Not such a desirable trait, in my not so humble opinion!

Yes, Paula, I saw the link. Somebody had fun.

Well, she only wanted to kill “THEM,” and “THEY” now have the highest abortion rate. Of course, after “THEM, ” she wanted to kill all the lesser breeds – Slavs, Italians, Asians, Irish. Which would leave just the “BEST,” e.g. those surrounding the Saint of Eugenics in the photo.

Allen – I think she is standing behind that table. At least that seems to be her feet, which speaks to the quality of the fake: the table looks about the right height to be part of the pic with the klansmen/women.

Now photoshop that lady who wrote “Silent Spring” being saluted by the Klan. She killed more black people (through banning DDT before malaria was erradicated in Africa) than the Klan ever did.
