Mansfield “disheartened” by Senate’s disregard for eugenics victims (Audio)

As the N.C. General Assembly works to wrap-up its seven-week session, Senator Eric Mansfield says there were several missed opportunities.

Mansfield, who appeared last weekend on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon, says among this session’s biggest disappointments was the failure of his colleagues in the Senate to even consider compensation for victims of the state’s now defunct forced-sterilization program:

“It seemed not indicative of what I thought most of our Senators were, which even if they were nothing else, I thought the majority of them were empathetic and compassionate,” said Senator Mansfield.

The legislature is expected to conclude its summer session on Tuesday.

    Only one of many missed opportunities, hardly worth the mention.

    The hand out left is at it again.

    Why was this never brought up by Democratic legislatures , and was never an issue ?

    @Alex, if you mean Democratic Party legislatures, it was not brought up for two very good reasons. 1. The Democratic Party traditionally strongly supported eugenics, and 2. the scientific elite (atheist materialists) that form the most powerful faction of the modern Democratic Party are still eugenicists, and therefore don’t want a Democrat to bring it up today. If you attack eugenics, you are almost immediately accused of being a stupid religious far-right extremist Christian racist Republican. As absurd as that is, it’s the truth, and Mansfield just ran into that hateful wall of obstruction that has hitherto been hiding in the darkest shadows of this country: the deep, dark secret of the Democratic Party and its fundamental disrespect for life. After all, eugenics is only an easy logical step to take once you publicly teach that all life is nothing but a special kind of evolving physical motion (materialism) and that it can and should be controlled by the powerful (atheism). Combine that philosophy with nationalized healthcare, and you will get eugenics again in an effort to save money on medical care (greed). It’s coming. And it won’t be because of Republicans. Just ask any scientist what he thinks about the Republican Party. Democrats give scientists whatever they want, however much money they want, and they blanket every hesitation with the charge that you must be “anti-science!” and “anti-progress!” if you oppose evil science. Well, I hope Sen. Mansfield has finally been woken up to the ugly truth.
