C4GC File Eugenics Class Action
I am not responsible for the genesis of this post, but would like to express my thanks to the person who is.
Not satisfied with the NC Senate’s removal from the budget of compensation for eugenics victims who were sterilized, despite having posted a ridiculous claim that the vile act was carried out by progressives, Guilford County’s Tea Party conservatives have filed a class action suit against the victims and any surviving children for the expenses incurred.
From Charles Davenport, Jr., editor of The Greensboro Guardian:
This is just the beginning. We also expect to sue for expenses incurred by slave owners. There’s no telling where this could lead. Those who have been sterilized or sold into slavery need to know there is a price to be paid for their actions.
Echoing this thinking is The Evil Dr. Guarino, columnist for The Greensboro Guardian:
The gay sociopolitical agenda has cost conservatives a lot of time and energy, not to mention money, in the fight against the gay lobby to keep them from turning this into a Gay America, where our children will be forced to enter into same-sex marriages. Thankfully, we’ve beat them back for awhile with NC Amendment One, but we must remain vigilant against their untiring efforts to violate natural law.
Rather than suing gays, The Evil Dr. Guarino plans to raise money with a series of dances, featuring big band music from the ’40s. He will also donate the proceeds from his wildly popular fan dancing shows at Copa Rocka Cantina.
From serial failure in business and politics, and co-founder of C4GC, Jeff Hyde:
Eugenics has been pushed into the shadows of public awareness because of who initiated the idea, who embraced the theories, and who made them public policy. They are a long list of influential families, business and industrial leaders, philanthropic foundations, non profit organizations, universities and academic scholars–the elite of our state and nation. They are the ruling class do-gooders. These people, to this day, believe that forced sterilization may have been carried out wrongly, but that it is their obligation to society as the elites to act “in the best interest of the individual and of the public good.”
Unfortunately, Hyde refuses to be more specific regarding those behind the eugenics program, but like Joe McCarthy before him, steadfastly maintains they represent a real and present danger to our democratic way of life.
From Dr. Ada M. Fisher, also a columnist for The Greensboro Guardian:
What are black leaders, the NAACP and others thinking about in supporting or standing quiet on legislation which gives those who are not citizens rights on par with those who are? Promoting those non-citizens between 18-40, who were brought to this nation as children, through no action or fault of their own, as deserving of preference to stay in this nation continues to relegate to the back of the bus two groups of citizens who were not immigrants to this nation: Native Americans were here to begin with, meaning America could not have been discovered by Christopher Columbus, and African Americans were forcibly brought to this country as slaves for cheap labor.
She contends at the very least, Latinos given amnesty should sit at the back of the bus.
