Bennett Under Fire for Remark on Crime and Black Abortions--WaPo
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...


By Brian Faler
Special to The Washington Post
Friday, September 30, 2005; Page A05

Democratic lawmakers and civil rights leaders denounced conservative commentator William J. Bennett yesterday for suggesting on his syndicated radio show that aborting black children would reduce the U.S. crime rate.

The former U.S. education secretary-turned-talk show host said Wednesday 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." Bennett quickly added that such an idea would be "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do." But, he said, "your crime rate would go down."

How about GOP Babies? What an idiot.

1. That would have no effect on the theft of the American treasury
by Bennett and his Conservative ilk in the WH and the Congress. That is real robbery.

I am more peeved by the WH response (or lack thereof) than his comments.
