Ruth Bader Ginsburg, eugenicist

September 21, 2020 By Monica Showalter 

Anyone notice an absence of black faces at the recent Ruth Bader Ginsburg memorials? She's being lionized, though, and several prominent supposed black leaders such as Rep.James Clyburn (the man who brought us Joe Biden) and the Rev. Al Sharpton have sung her praises.

Like the Black Lives Matter protests, though, it's mostly an all-white show with some black people out front. One reason may be that Ginsburg was Jewish, and anti-Semitism in the U.S. is the strongest in the black community. But there's also Ginsburg herself, who had some pretty questionable views about abortion and race.

Here's an actual quote from the New York Times magazine, dating from 2009

Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae — in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. 

It's so bad that I thought it had to be fake when I first saw it I had to look it up to confirm its authenticity.

Who talks like that in 2009? Heck, who talks like that in 1973? Ginsburg herself confirmed to her fawning reporter that it was an accurate quote...............To Read More....
