ABC NEWS Sept. 29, 2005 — William Bennett Defends Comment on Abortion and Crime
After pondering on his radio program how aborting every black infant in America would affect crime rates, best-selling author and self-styled "Values Czar" Bill Bennett is vehemently denying he is a racist and defending his willingness to speak publicly about race and crime.
On the Wednesday edition of his radio show, "Bill Bennett's Morning in America," syndicated by Salem Radio Network, a caller raised the theory that Social Security is in danger of becoming insolvent because legalized abortion has reduced the number of tax-paying citizens. Bennett said economic arguments should never be employed in discussions of moral issues.
If it were your sole purpose to reduce crime, Bennett said, "You could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down.
"That would be an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down," he added.
This maroon was once the Secretary of Education, thank you very much. And he defends his statement! oy my gawd!
How about proper education for all American children (like actual books in all the classrooms across America for example) and racist pigs like Bennett keeping their big mouths shut would make the crime rate go down. asshole. How about not exporting jobs overseas so that there would be jobs here, would keep the crime rate down? How about the government not aiding and abetting drug importers keeping the crime rate down? How about not cutting needed social programs would keep the crime rate down?
I know from my experience even here on my little island that the crime rates are higher in the neighborhoods where the school districts suck... and these school districts have a large number of black students. Why are these schools underfunded? Because the tax base is poor. They have no books, no computers, and lousy administration. Yet one village over, where the schools are well funded, the crime rate is low except for occassional overflow.
When I have suggested in my county that we skim some funds from all the well funded school districts and give some to the underfunded districts everyone scoffs. The reasoning I use to get through to the racists is that I just don't want to be mugged. There are gangs forming in those neighborhoods. This is serious. They don't get it. They just don't drive through those areas. Well that's just fine, Christian fucking hypocrites and Jewish so-called liberals.
Excuse me while I throw up.
