Pat Robertson, boy eugenicist
After mucking up his grand plans for a Jesusland theme park by claiming that God smote Ariel Sharon for returning portions of Palestine to the Palestinians, Pat Robertson is back on idiot street.
During an on-air sermon (and please, do we really need to ask why they invite him? It's FOR this reason...) discussing the concept of Hope and birthrates in Europe the good reverend claimed that the legacy of Sartre was inviting "racial suicide." [VIDEO].
Clearly a disgusting and bigoted concept, I decided to do a Google search for the term "racial suicide."
The first result, from writer and teacher of the year John Taylor Gatto, points out that the term "racial suicide" was first used by the president of MIT in 1891 and:
"After that bombshell, an orchestrated campaign of scientific racism swept the United States and didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t flag in public energy for forty long years. Racial suicide was the Red Scare, Fifth Column, and AIDS epidemic of its day all rolled into one.""Scientific racism," or "eugenics" was begun here and exported to Germany where, well, you know the rest. And we all know that Google doesn't lie. Check the rest of the results from that search and you get white supremacy white supremacy hallelujah white supremacy. (MediaMatters)
