Abort Gambling Addict Bill Bennett

From CNN.com:
Former Education Secretary William Bennett told a caller to his syndicated radio talk show Wednesday: "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.

"That would be an impossibly ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down."
And through Bennett's bloody, hypothetical prenatal dragnet would slip future Enron executives, 99.9% of serial killers, spoiled rich fratboys who will highjack elected offices and launch wrongheaded, pre-emptive wars based on lies, P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act creators, World Bank and IMF vampires... I mean, executives, and industrial polluters (name a single person of color who headed/heads a company that left a tract of land so vilely unhabitable that the U.S. federal government had to create the "Super Fund").

William Bennett is a racist.

Anyone who has ever publicly taken Bennett's side and does not, now, censure him is a racist.

From CNN.com: "[Bennett] is a Fox News contributor..."

Of course he is.

Update

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (CNN) -- A white South African has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a black farm worker and feeding his body to lions.
Granted this person is not a white American, but as criminality is not restricted to race, insanity is not restricted to geography.

Glad you pointed out his ignorance. Someone should mention to him that 90% or so of all crimes are committed not by blacks, but by men. It's not the skin color that gets us in trouble.

Planned Parenthood Advocates Abortion to Reduce Crime

And the bizarre thing is that Bennett, who explicitly rejects abortion, is under attack.

Bennett ought to be vilified, demonized, ridiculed, hounded, tarred and feathered. The man is a racist pig who offered up one of the most patently false, intellectually insulting, socially indefensible hypothetical situations I've ever heard. I've read his quote in full. It is not bizarre that "Bennett, who explicitly rejects abortion, is under attack" -- it's bizarre that anyone would offer up the least defense of his indefensible statement.

But..... an accident of geography can, apparently, keep murderous mercs from the Hague.

Even if they are neither stupid nor insane.
