The Nazis' Murder of Jews, Communists and Gypsies In Gas Chambers Was an AMERICAN Idea

Believe it or not, the Nazis' murder of Jews, communists and gypsies using gas chambers was actually an American idea.

As the San Francisco Chronicle wrote in 2003:

the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power. California eugenicists played an important, although little-known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing.

Eugenics was the pseudoscience aimed at "improving" the human race. In its extreme, racist form, this meant wiping away all human beings deemed "unfit," preserving only those who conformed to a Nordic stereotype. Elements of the philosophy were enshrined as national policy by forced sterilization and segregation laws, as well as marriage restrictions, enacted in 27 states. In 1909, California became the third state to adopt such laws. Ultimately, eugenics practitioners coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in "colonies," and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning. Before World War II, nearly half of coercive sterilizations were done in California, and even after the war, the state accounted for a third of all such surgeries.

California was considered an epicenter of the American eugenics movement. During the 20th century's first decades, California's eugenicists included potent but little-known race scientists, such as Army venereal disease specialist Dr. Paul Popenoe, citrus magnate Paul Gosney, Sacramento banker Charles Goethe, as well as members of the California state Board of Charities and Corrections and the University of California Board of Regents.

Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America's most respected scientists from such prestigious universities as Stanford, Yale, Harvard and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics' racist aims.

Stanford President David Starr Jordan originated the notion of "race and blood" in his 1902 racial epistle "Blood of a Nation," in which the university scholar declared that human qualities and conditions such as talent and poverty were passed through the blood.

n 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples. From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislatures of America, as well as the nation's social service agencies and associations.

The Harriman railroad fortune paid local charities, such as the New York Bureau of Industries and Immigration, to seek out Jewish, Italian and other immigrants in New York and other crowded cities and subject them to deportation, confinement or forced sterilization.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.

Much of the spiritual guidance and political agitation for the American eugenics movement came from California's quasi-autonomous eugenic societies, such as Pasadena's Human Betterment Foundation and the California branch of the American Eugenics Society, which coordinated much of their activity with the Eugenics Research Society in Long Island. These organizations -- which functioned as part of a closely-knit network -- published racist eugenic newsletters and pseudoscientific journals, such as Eugenical News and Eugenics, and propagandized for the Nazis.


The most commonly suggested method of eugenicide in the United States was a "lethal chamber" or public, locally operated gas chambers. In 1918, Popenoe, the Army venereal disease specialist during World War I, co-wrote the widely used textbook, "Applied Eugenics," which argued, "From an historical point of view, the first method which presents itself is execution . . . Its value in keeping up the standard of the race should not be underestimated." "Applied Eugenics" also devoted a chapter to "Lethal Selection," which operated "through the destruction of the individual by some adverse feature of the environment, such as excessive cold, or bacteria, or by bodily deficiency."

Eugenic breeders believed American society was not ready to implement an organized lethal solution. But many mental institutions and doctors practiced improvised medical lethality and passive euthanasia on their own. One institution in Lincoln, Ill., fed its incoming patients milk from tubercular cows believing a eugenically strong individual would be immune. Thirty to 40 percent annual death rates resulted at Lincoln. Some doctors practiced passive eugenicide one newborn infant at a time. Others doctors at mental institutions engaged in lethal neglect.


Even the U.S. Supreme Court endorsed aspects of eugenics. In its infamous 1927 decision, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, "It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind . . . Three generations of imbeciles are enough." This decision opened the floodgates for thousands to be coercively sterilized or otherwise persecuted as subhuman. Years later, the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials quoted Holmes' words in their own defense.

Only after eugenics became entrenched in the United States was the campaign transplanted into Germany, in no small measure through the efforts of California eugenicists, who published booklets idealizing sterilization and circulated them to German officials and scientists.

Hitler studied American eugenics laws. He tried to legitimize his anti- Semitism by medicalizing it, and wrapping it in the more palatable pseudoscientific facade of eugenics. Hitler was able to recruit more followers among reasonable Germans by claiming that science was on his side. Hitler's race hatred sprung from his own mind, but the intellectual outlines of the eugenics Hitler adopted in 1924 were made in America.

During the '20s, Carnegie Institution eugenic scientists cultivated deep personal and professional relationships with Germany's fascist eugenicists. In "Mein Kampf," published in 1924, Hitler quoted American eugenic ideology and openly displayed a thorough knowledge of American eugenics. "There is today one state," wrote Hitler, "in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception (of immigration) are noticeable. Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the United States."


During the Reich's early years, eugenicists across America welcomed Hitler's plans as the logical fulfillment of their own decades of research and effort. California eugenicists republished Nazi propaganda for American consumption. They also arranged for Nazi scientific exhibits, such as an August 1934 display at the L.A. County Museum, for the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.

In 1934, as Germany's sterilizations were accelerating beyond 5,000 per month, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe, upon returning from Germany, ebulliently bragged to a colleague, "You will be interested to know that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought . . . I want you, my dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people."


More than just providing the scientific roadmap, America funded Germany's eugenic institutions.

By 1926, Rockefeller had donated some $410,000 -- almost $4 million in today's money -- to hundreds of German researchers. In May 1926, Rockefeller awarded $250,000 toward creation of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry. Among the leading psychiatrists at the German Psychiatric Institute was Ernst Rüdin, who became director and eventually an architect of Hitler's systematic medical repression.

Another in the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute's complex of eugenics institutions was the Institute for Brain Research. Since 1915, it had operated out of a single room. Everything changed when Rockefeller money arrived in 1929. A grant of $317,000 allowed the institute to construct a major building and take center stage in German race biology. The institute received additional grants from the Rockefeller Foundation during the next several years. Leading the institute, once again, was Hitler's medical henchman Ernst Rüdin. Rüdin's organization became a prime director and recipient of the murderous experimentation and research conducted on Jews, Gypsies and others.

Beginning in 1940, thousands of Germans taken from old age homes, mental institutions and other custodial facilities were systematically gassed. Between 50,000 and 100,000 were eventually killed.

Leon Whitney, executive secretary of the American Eugenics Society, declared of Nazism, "While we were pussy-footing around ... the Germans were calling a spade a spade."

A special recipient of Rockefeller funding was the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics in Berlin. For decades,

American eugenicists had craved twins to advance their research into heredity.

The Institute was now prepared to undertake such research on an unprecedented level. On May 13, 1932, the Rockefeller Foundation in New York dispatched a radiogram to its Paris office: JUNE MEETING EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE NINE THOUSAND DOLLARS OVER THREE YEAR PERIOD TO KWG INSTITUTE ANTHROPOLOGY FOR RESEARCH ON TWINS AND EFFECTS ON LATER GENERATIONS OF SUBSTANCES TOXIC FOR GERM PLASM.

At the time of Rockefeller's endowment, Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, a hero in American eugenics circles, functioned as a head of the Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics. Rockefeller funding of that institute continued both directly and through other research conduits during Verschuer's early tenure. In 1935, Verschuer left the institute to form a rival eugenics facility in Frankfurt that was much heralded in the American eugenics press. Research on twins in the Third Reich exploded, backed by government decrees. Verschuer wrote in Der Erbarzt, a eugenics doctor's journal he edited, that Germany's war would yield a "total solution to the Jewish problem."

Verschuer had a longtime assistant. His name was Josef Mengele.


Rockefeller executives never knew of Mengele. With few exceptions, the foundation had ceased all eugenics studies in Nazi-occupied Europe before the war erupted in 1939. But by that time the die had been cast. The talented men Rockefeller and Carnegie financed, the great institutions they helped found, and the science they helped create took on a scientific momentum of their own.

As Michel Crichton wrote in 2004:

Its supporters included Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Winston Churchill. It was approved by Supreme Court justices Oliver Wendell Holmes and Louis Brandeis, who ruled in its favor. The famous names who supported it included Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone; activist Margaret Sanger; botanist Luther Burbank; Leland Stanford, founder of Stanford University; the novelist H. G. Wells; the playwright George Bernard Shaw; and hundreds of others. Nobel Prize winners gave support. Research was backed by the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations. The Cold Springs Harbor Institute was built to carry out this research, but important work was also done at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford and Johns Hopkins. Legislation to address the crisis was passed in states from New York to California.

These efforts had the support of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Medical Association, and the National Research Council. It was said that if Jesus were alive, he would have supported this effort.

All in all, the research, legislation and molding of public opinion surrounding the theory went on for almost half a century. Those who opposed the theory were shouted down and called reactionary, blind to reality, or just plain ignorant. But in hindsight, what is surprising is that so few people objected.


The plan was to identify individuals who were feeble-minded --- Jews were agreed to be largely feeble-minded, but so were many foreigners, as well as blacks --- and stop them from breeding by isolation in institutions or by sterilization.

Such views were widely shared. H.G. Wells spoke against "ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens." Theodore Roosevelt said that "Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind." Luther Burbank" "Stop permitting criminals and weaklings to reproduce." George Bernard Shaw said that only eugenics could save mankind.


Eugenics research was funded by the Carnegie Foundation, and later by the Rockefeller Foundation. The latter was so enthusiastic that even after the center of the eugenics effort moved to Germany, and involved the gassing of individuals from mental institutions, the Rockefeller Foundation continued to finance German researchers at a very high level. (The foundation was quiet about it, but they were still funding research in 1939, only months before the onset of World War II.)

Since the 1920s, American eugenicists had been jealous because the Germans had taken leadership of the movement away from them. The Germans were admirably progressive. They set up ordinary-looking houses where "mental defectives" were brought and interviewed one at a time, before being led into a back room, which was, in fact, a gas chamber. There, they were gassed with carbon monoxide, and their bodies disposed of in a crematorium located on the property.

Eventually, this program was expanded into a vast network of concentration camps located near railroad lines, enabling the efficient transport and of killing ten million undesirables.

After World War II, nobody was a eugenicist, and nobody had ever been a eugenicist. Biographers of the celebrated and the powerful did not dwell on the attractions of this philosophy to their subjects, and sometimes did not mention it at all. Eugenics ceased to be a subject for college classrooms, although some argue that its ideas continue to have currency in disguised form.


The scientific establishment in both the United States and Germany did not mount any sustained protest. Quite the contrary. In Germany scientists quickly fell into line with the program. Modern German researchers have gone back to review Nazi documents from the 1930s. They expected to find directives telling scientists what research should be done. But none were necessary. In the words of Ute Deichman, "Scientists, including those who were not members of the [Nazi] party, helped to get funding for their work through their modified behavior and direct cooperation with the state." Deichman speaks of the "active role of scientists themselves in regard to Nazi race policy … where [research] was aimed at confirming the racial doctrine … no external pressure can be documented." German scientists adjusted their research interests to the new policies. And those few who did not adjust disappeared.

Note: Obviously, not all Americans bought into crazy eugenics theories.


  1. Another issue is the connection between IBM/Hollerith, the connections between IG Farben and Zyklon B, and a whole series of other sundry associations that assisted the wholesale murder.

    IBM was responsible for the census/sorting machines, IG Farben provided the chemicals for the purpose. IG Farben was broken up into a series of other companies, ultimately ending up as BASF and Bayer.

    Bayer, however, has, according to international news, hidden the presence of HIV in blood products to fight hemophilia, selling the product in Asia after the discovery of HIV contamination.

    The particular medication was Factor VIII concentrate. It is used to help the clotting of blood in hemophilia patients.

    That's ignoring the Bush/Harriman Nazi connection in the 1930s-1940s, in the cruise lines and railroad, as well. Feel free to hold this comment until you can check. Look up the Sun Valley, Idaho nazi connection regarding Averill Harriman.

  2. This is such an interesting post on so many levels. I had no idea the Rockefellers were such big supporters of the movement, yet I find myself feeling very unsurprised too.

    To the chagrin of the state legislators who are debating compensation for sterilization victims, it is still a huge issue in NC. NC was implementing its eugenics sterilization program until 1974:

  3. It's amazing how many "social" movements are nothing more than the promotion of inbreeding, which will eventually have a result opposite of the desired effect.

    Think how many millions of lives could be saved from destruction if we collectively wised up enough to ignore anybody who claims to have outwitted nature.

  4. Explains why DeArnold is so at home as governor of California...

  5. interesting and informative article, this obviously all took place before, and in reaction to the Marxist multiculturalist who took over because today the so-called white race is fast disappearing from the face of the earth

  6. Scary stuff.

    Can you see the parallels with man-made global warming theory?

    If you want to get the grants, the funding, the findings will fit the theory.

    A national newspaper in Canada actually published an opinion piece arguing for the need to enforce China's one-child policy on the entire world in order to save the planet.

  7. This is a excellent article.
    Do you have a version that includes citations for your sources?



  8. The American populace in general lines is absolutely ignorant about the subject of eugenics in their own country. Conversely, the Nazi regime was also engaged in business dealings with Zionist organizations for relocating thousands of German Jews into British-controlled Palestine prior to WWII (known as the Transfer Agreement").

  9. This idea originated from England, and not from the States and was part of the socialist movement to "improve' the lives of the "poor" by social experimentation, based on scientific evidence of the time. Those who inhabit this great land are direct children and grand children who survived the attempt to cut their balls. So do not be surprised how it is easy to manipulate and make fools out the majority using their lack of mental capacity to see the simple and clear game offered to them. Why kill the cow when you can milk it.

  10. The entire history of the eugenics movement is documented in Erwin Black's, "Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race". This is an amazing book that reads more like an intriging page-turning story than a history book. Every fact is foot-noted. The research effort that went into to this book is utterly remarkable. Just read the 26 reveiws on amazon (much more in detail than what I have to say here). I read this book last summer and it was an eyeopener....eugenics hasn't died out, it is still lurking about, more secretively but ever omnipresent. Watch-out!

  11. 75 reasons to be skeptical of global warming.

    Whut!? Whut!?

  12. And people STILL think "it could never happen here"? That's a joke.

    Interesting that Averill Harriman was involved with both the Nazis (see "The Total Idiot"s comment) AND the Soviet communists. As American ambassador to the USSR, Harriman practically ran the Soviet Union during the last 2 years of WWII, when Stalin was suffering a nervous breakdown.

    The Anglo-American establishment has a long history of supporting tyranny.

  13. soo, did everyone notice the comment of 2/21 at 11:02 a.m. mentioning the "lack of mental capacity" of "the majority?" Does that Anonymous realize how ignorant and simplistic or at least really pompous that comes off?

    Maybe being a conspiracy theorist goes hand-in-hand with thinking those who don't have the same view must be either incredibly stupid or part of the conspiracy.

    anyway, what's important to me is preventing awful things happening, not just sifting thru ashes trying to find who invented fire.

    Hatred's been around awhile. if anyone's going to be hanged for this stuff even if it were absolutely proven.... It is good to be wary of secretive organizations. Simultaeously, try to give your collective blood pressure a break -- do positive things in the here and now rather than scooping up mud to throw at evil ghosts.

    sign me as another anon.

  14. Can you provide proof of gas chambers being used for the killing of human beings, rather than disease-carrying insects?

  15. Sick F%^*NG bastards, and I am a California native!? Proves that there are too many nutcases in this state that further proves it's miserably failed as part of the union. I hang my head in shame especially for those that are totally oblivious to what is about to happen to them.

  16. Christians have been duped by the unholiest hoax in all history, by so-called Jews. This is considered their most effective weapon."

    "This 'big lie' technique is brainwashing United States Christians into believing that Jesus Christ was "King of the Jews", in the sense that so-called 'Jews' today call themselves 'Jews'. This reference was first made in English translations of the Old and New Testaments, centuries before the so-called Jews highjacked the word 'Jew' in the 18th century A.D. to palm themselves off on the Christian world as having a kinship with Jesus Christ. This alleged kinship comes from the myth of their common ancestry with the so-called 'Jews' of the Holy Land in the Old Testament history, a fiction based on fable."

    "American Christians little suspect they are being brainwashed twenty-four hours of every day over television and radio, by newspapers and magazines, by motion pictures and plays, by books, by political leaders in office and seeking office, by religious leaders in their pulpits and outside their churches, by leaders in the field of education inside and outside their curricular activities, and by all leaders in business, professions and finance, whose economic security demands that they curry the favor of so-called "Jews" of historic Khazar ancestry. Unsuspecting Christians are subjected to this barrage from sources they have little reason to suspect. Incontestable facts supply the unchallengeable proof of the historic accuracy that so-called "Jews" throughout the world today of eastern European origin are unquestionably the historic descendants of the Khazars, a pagan Turko-Finn ancient Mongoloid nation deep in the heart of Asia, according to history, who battled their way in bloody wars about the 1st century B.C. into eastern Europe where they set up their Khazar kingdom. For some mysterious reason the history of the Khazar kingdom is conspicuous by its absence from history courses in the schools and colleges.

    "The historic existence of the Khazar kingdom of so-called "Jews", their rise and fall, the permanent disappearance of the Khazar kingdom as a nation from the map of Europe, and how King Bulan and the Khazar nation in about 740 A.D. became so-called "Jews" by conversion, were concealed from American Christians by censorship imposed by so-called "Jews", of historic Khazar ancestry, upon all U.S.A. media of mass communications directed by them. Then in 1945 this author gave nation-wide publicity to his many years intensive research into the "facts of life" concerning Khazars. The disclosures were sensational and very effective but apparently angered so-called "Jews" who have continued to vent their spleen upon this author since then solely for that reason. Since 1946 they have conducted a vicious smear campaign against him, seeking thus to further conceal these facts, for obvious reasons. What have they to fear from the truth?

  17. Hmm, reading your comment rules, you state that you delete any comments that criticize any class as a while. Yet your article writes that America hatched the idea for the holocaust. As if our country was responsible. How about not painting our country as a "whole", and instead try naming the perpetrators or groups responsible in your title.

    You are lame, and simply trying to stir up anti-american sentiments.

  18. WATCH IT AND LEARN: The most important video you'll ever see! There is NO EVIDENCE of a plan for mass extermination. They were work camps. There is NO EVIDENCE OF GAS CHAMBERS. The Holohoax was a GREAT exaggeration given to us by the Zionists! This article is nothing but BS propaganda used to keep our eyes focused on this country and away from the real perpetrators who gave us WWI, WWII, the current wars in the Middle East, the first and second banks of this nation, the Federal Reserve, U.S.S. Liberty, and yes - 9/11 - ISRAEL! It's no surprise Zionist gate keeper Alex Jones is promoting this on his site. Mossad / Israel did 9/11. Time for so called truthers to break through the propaganda from within the movement!

  19. Thousands of years of evolution and we get Anderson Cooper? No Thanks

  20. I urge you to get a copy of the FULLY DOCUMENTED film: Maafa21. The producers of Maafa21 went directly to the source, researching the information from the papers of Margaret Sanger , Planned Parenthood, their board, and their eugenic supporters. Fully documented quotes and video of the founders and US eugenics society links to Hitler and the Nazis will leave you stunned. Maafa21 shows evidence that Margaret Sanger – founder of Planned Parenthood was a member of the American Eugenics Society (AES), spoke to their meetings, met with their VP’s and also spoke to the KKK (proof in Sanger’s autobiography). In addition, other Planned Parenthood members were Eugenics Society members. Maafa21 shows the connection from Rockefeller money to RU486 and Zyklon B. This film is a MUST SEE! Get a copy of Maafa21 - here (clip)

  21. Wow!!!
    I thought I wouldn't read this blog again, but most of you people amaze me! You're like a cartoon. I am so glad bizarros stay in the closet most of the time and vent where nobody gets physically injured.

    Tell me, is this coming from your DNA?

    Ain't it great the bell curve has very few individuals at each end?!

  22. Cui Bono?

    One group of people got exactly what they wanted from the Holocaust.

    Follow THAT trail, and see how deep the rabbit hole really is.

    Cui Bono?

  23. The events in this country during the pre WW2 era are a good lesson in what can happen when science becomes God instead of God. Does this sound like the "settled science" of global warming and evolution ?? The same kind of ridicule and subversion of scientific debate. It's interesting that most of the social activist that promoted eugenics were liberals that were able to play on the fears,greed and dark motives of big business to bank role and promote these ideas. I sincerely hope we learn from the past that the social engineering so popular in today's liberal circles are potentially as harmful if not to the body certainly to the mind and spirit of a free people.....

  24. Every nation on this planet has committed atrocities, whether in the name of a flag, a God or in the name of freedom, equality or some other banner, whatever will stir-up the masses the best.
    Which is all this article is, a sh~t stir.


  25. I so agree with this opinion piece. There are way too many people on this planet.

    A national newspaper in Canada actually published an opinion piece arguing for the need to enforce China's one-child policy on the entire world in order to save the planet.

  26. I can't tell from this posting whether or not you are just sharing historical information or are advocating for the racist policies of the early Eugenics movement and that of the Nazis.

  27. Without compulsory birth control we are going to have a world wide tragedy of overwhelming proportions. This world is already over populated to a dangerous, toxic and non-sustaining level. Poverty and disease are both driven by over population as are wars. If one child per male were the exclusive rule we could get this problem under control. That way divorce can not effect the numbers of children born. Keeping DNA records of all males and every new born child could act as the enforcement tool.
    Failure to act towards population control will result in the greatest slaughter in all of history if we live to record the event.

  28. Yes, eugenics -- precisely as promoted by "Plan Against Parenthood" pioneer Margaret Sanger. Her plan, and the organization she, ironically, birthed and mothered, is now responsible for MORE DEATHS EACH YEAR than the 10 years of the Holocaust combined.

    Because of murder mills like Planned Parenthood and others, MORE BLACK CHILDREN ARE SLAUGHTERED IN ABORTUARIES EVERY YEAR than are born alive.

    This is the fruit of master-race eugenics, and the 20th century was only the beginning.

  29. I accept that certain aspects of this could be true, but without citations how can the assertions be verified? Certainly eugenics was a theory that some explored during the early part of the twentieth century, but it's quite a leap to conclude that their beliefs and research directly led to the Holocaust. To conclude that they in fact ever had such a "solution" in mind is ridiculous.

    Finally, even more ridiculous is the assertion in one of the comments that "they were only work camps." There is so much contemporaneous evidence to the contrary, so many photographs, eyewitness accounts, and thousands of oral histories from death camp survivors that believing that mass murders never happened is like believing that the stork delivers babies. My father helped liberate one of the camps; he took many pictures. I still have them. It happened.

  30. Anonymous asks:

    "I can't tell from this posting whether or not you are just sharing historical information or are advocating for the racist policies of the early Eugenics movement and that of the Nazis."

    I am 100% against Eugenics, and think it is crazy.

  31. I actually liked this comment it was interesting that this happened and that it is not common knowledge. I would like to see sources because it would make researching this a little bit easier but for anybody that truly wishes to be skeptical you should also want to investigate it.

    Thanks for the point on topic it was enlightening.

    And for the people that posted comments...
    I saw a few who actually wrote intelligent comments but things such as "MORE BLACK CHILDREN ARE SLAUGHTERED IN ABORTUARIES EVERY YEAR" and "Which is all this article is, a sh~t stir." you need to make yourselves more informed or in the later posts case just stop posting.

    I am picking on these two a bit but for the first one black children are not the only children dying around the world so get off your racial pedestal your wasting peoples time with your bs posts.

    For the second, just because you have no clue what is going on and wish not to know the truth does NOT mean that it is meant to cause problems it just means the weak of heart are too scared and lazy to do their duty to themselves and the society around them.

    To end my rant I will add one more, "Christians have been duped by the unholiest hoax in all history, by so-called Jews. This is considered their most effective weapon." Keep your religious fanaticism to yourself, religion was a tool formed to help vastly uneducated and primative peoples to live with one another. I like to think we as a species have come a long way from stone spears and coconuts so grow up and learn that you are the only person that vastly effects your life and that religion is only a tool to control the masses.

  32. Progressives will be Progressives, no matter the time or place.

    Easy to see how deadly ideas spread so easily with the right amount of cash, and "good intent".

  33. Sheesh!! Some of you make a really good case for not listening to anonymous posters!
