Bernie Sanders is apparently willing to slaughter millions of babies in poor countries in order to enact his plan to save the planet… or at least, that’s the way it sounded during the ‘climate change’ town hall. Sanders called abortion the “key.”
But his call for global eugenics didn’t sit well, even with one CNN host. But, the New York Times decided to keep that little bit of truth under wraps.
Breitbart News reported:
“Human population growth has more than doubled in the last 50 years,” an attendee told Sanders, adding that the planet cannot sustain such growth.
“I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact,” the attendee continued.
“Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” she asked.
“The answer is yes,” Sanders said, arguing that population control – in the form of abortion and birth control, specifically – is something he “very, very strongly” supports.
“The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions,” Sanders said.
“And the Mexico City agreement, which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that are – that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control is totally absurd,” he continued.
“So I think especially in poor countries around the world, where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity to birth control to control the number of kids they have is something I very, very strongly support,” he added.
The Daily Caller pointed out the duplicity of the New York Times:
The New York Times is keeping readers in the dark about Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ embrace of population control, including abortion, as a means of combating climate change.
Sanders was asked during CNN’s climate town hall on Wednesday whether he would support measures to curb population growth in order to protect the climate. The Vermont senator answered yes, and said using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion abroad, “especially in poor countries around the world,” is something he “very, very strongly” supports
Sanders’ endorsement of population control drew a sharp backlash, and was covered by some establishment outlets like the BBC, including right-of-center media.
“Let’s just state for the record: talking about needing ‘population control’ through ABORTION for the sake of CLIMATE is talking about EUGENICS,” CNN host S.E. Cupp commented on Twitter. “The fact that @BernieSanders is willing to entertain this vile idea is not only disgusting, it should be disqualifying,” she added.
“By advocating taxpayer-funded abortion in ‘poor countries,’ Sanders not only exaggerates the environmental threat of overpopulation but also displays grotesque chauvinism in his demand that the world comply with the West’s determination to exterminate our future,” wrote National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis.
Despite the uproar over Sanders’ endorsement of population control, the New York Times did not mention Sanders’ comments once in its coverage of the CNN town hall. The paper published several stories on the town hall, but none that mentioned Sanders’ population control remarks.
