Bill Bennett: "[Y]ou could abort every black baby in this country, and you
I'll give you 9 to 1 odds that Bill Bennett's career is over. There is simply no way to spin or recover from this statement. The new party of Lincoln has let their racist cat out of the bag.

Addressing a caller's suggestion that the "lost revenue from the people who have been aborted in the last 30 years" would be enough to preserve Social Security's solvency, radio host and former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett dismissed such "far-reaching, extensive extrapolations" by declaring that if "you wanted to reduce crime ... if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." Bennett conceded that aborting all African-American babies "would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do," then added again, "but the crime rate would go down."

Did he say that crime would be reduced if "white" babies were aborted?

No, he singled out black babies. He and his party are racist and I urge all to yell at all media possible to get this out.

He admits droppoing 8 mil to gambling and then turns around and makes a racist remark? What a g****** bigot and fool.

Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 11:23 PM by are_we_united_yet
I'm making reference to the tactic of distraction which give wingnuts some garbage argument to hold onto and debate. Kind of like typewriter fonts in the late 60's and early 70's.

I liken Bennett saying stupid shit to Gibson saying stupid shit but in the end, they are both worthless mouth piece morons, hell bent on propagating hate and being intentionally inflammatory.

Personally, I won't let this distract me from the much more politically meaningful events such as Delay's indictment, Frist's stock investigation, Fitzgerald's looming indictments involving the CIA leak, Abramoff's troubles etc., Safarian implications etc., but that's just me.

12. You got to wonder...Does Bill Bennett even know any black
people? I mean, really know them. Eat in their houses, see their kids, hear them talk, listen to what they say.

A statement like that is so crazy, so stupid...it's like a black man's worst imaginings of white America synopsized. Abort black kids, it would really reduce the crime rate.

Amazing...

Using the same logic, if Bennett had been aborted we could have reduced national stupidity by at least one ignorant mouth.

Enough conservatives were put off by Bunnypants' "FDR" speech that they needed a way to energize the base. Red meat for the base.

It's also taking advantage of the media spinfest regarding the "looting" and "raping," "mayhem" and "murder" that never happened in NOLA. Republicans are opportunistic SOBs and they are playing on the theme and preying on the fears of their base, by dehumanizing black people.

22. The implication is that MBAs in pin stripe suits do not hurt anyone.
As if only black people commit crimes. Just like any group - the odd one will to anything to get more power, money, etc.

Fact is I think that the abortion issues & crime is more tied up in "Woman who find themselves pregnant and do not want anything to do with the father"..may have figured out the father is an asshole or a sociopath. That is likely why the crime rate goes down with abortion. Evolutionary strategy for the sociopaths is to impregnate and not be invested emotionally. Sociopaths are well distributed amongst all populations. If Ted Bundy's mother could have had access to an abortion when she was single and pregnant and alone.. think of all the trouble & crime that would have saved the world. As it was - she found someone else to marry and for that baby to have a name. And the rest is history. Sociopaths are equally distributed across all population in America. I would guess that this is the most significant reason why crime rates go down with the legalization of abortion. Cause some sociopathy is inherited.

Now we know the "science" Bennett & his pals talk about at cocktail parties. Science that sees their enemies (black people) as the logical outcome of any negative scientific trends. Once again scapegoating. I would wonder what the rate of abortion is per population. I would imagine part of Bennetts problem is he wants to put all the abortion on "them" as if white girls didn't have any. Or - mistakenly - end up with a sociopath.

27. Republicans don't care. Not a single one will shun him.
This is what they believe. They'll almost certainly start praising him. Bennett could say that a return to good old fashioned lynching would spur rope sales and revive the economy, and his audience would stroke their chins and nod approvingly. They think there's nothing wrong with this country that a little ethnic cleansing couldn't fix.

I'll be interested to see if any prominent right wing voice condemns Bennett. My money's on "nope".

Well, I suppose we can give Bennet credit. He didn't simply come outright and say, let's just sterilize all black people....or let's kill all black people.

Nah, let's just kill all their babies...

Then again, this kind of shit isn't rare among the RR. Remember Robertson's response to the one-China policy? "Ohhh...they're doing something they have to do".

38. It's terrible not only that they say these things but that they clearly
Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 05:09 AM by Nothing Without Hope
feel quite complacent in saying such things, as though their audience will not disagree all that much if at all. To me it's not so much the presence of the outspokenly vicious racists themselves - those have always been around - but the ATTENTION given to them and the RECEPTION that they expect to receive...and too often do.

That comment of his should have ignited a firestorm of protest - but apparently it did not, at least not at that time. It's that Rush Limbaugh "excuse" - "I'm brave enough to say what you are all thinking but too chicken to say yourselves."

Despicable. I see no reason why Bill Bennett should ever be invited as a speaker - it's clear he's supposed to dish out these hate-bombs while the freeper audience giggles. The act of inviting him should be cause for a barrage of letters to the sponsors of any commercial station. He has a right to his sick opinions, as long as he doesn't act on them or incite others to do so, but he should never be invited to spew them over our country.

Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 09:21 AM by omega minimo
men have made of the world.

Not only is the concept insane, that statement is insane.

Only someone completely out of touch with reality could say this:

<Bennett conceded that aborting all African-American babies "would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do," then added again, "but the crime rate would go down.">

THIS IS THE INSANE DISCONNECTED VIEW OF ABORTION THAT MANY MEN --WHO ARE RUNNING THINGS, BY THE WAY-- HAVE OF ABORTION.

This is "abortion on demand" :puke: Insane men with fantasies of a national eugenics program.

53. Umm, I really don't see a problem with that...
If you ACTUALLY think about the statement, and to what he was replying it makes sense. This caller, was making a case for banning abortion based on lost SS revenue....to point out how extremely silly that is he made a case for required abortion based on crime rates. He wasn't suggesting it...Also it's true. Just as aborting every white baby in the country would bring the crime rate down. Again...I don't see how this is so horrible...can we stick to real issues to fight them about, not this stupid shit...

54. It is the simple fact that it will be read and construed to mean
that he tried to justify the abortion of black babies to bring down the crime rate. While your notion indeed makes sense...look at the underlying reason for Bennett to say that, he is still a racist jerk. He could have made the analogy in any of a hundred ways, he chose a remarkably stupid one.

56. I agree wholeheartedly...Bennett and those who similar thought...
should sit down and shut up.

For one thing, it is none of their business what a woman does with her body, unless they were directly responsible for the pregnancy, even then, circumstances dictate they have a secondary voice.

Bennett has no 'use' for blacks, hispanics, asians etc. He is a blowhard racist that decries 'the immorality' of others, but fails to see his own horrid ignorance.

67. His take on race and crime....
There is a relationship between socioeconomic status and crime and blacks might have a lower overall socioeconomic status. So, while there might be a relationship, it is spurious insofar as the true causal connection does not directly connect race to crime...and I heard the comment too...He is such an asshole...
