Ron Weddington Quote

“But you can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I'm, not advocating some, sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who can't afford to have babies. There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true, but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in individual rights, we view any program which might treat the disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited Republican.”

~ Ron Weddington

letter to 'President-to-be' Bill Clinton, January 6, 1992

Meaning abortion is less costly than welfare, food stamps, free school breakfasts and lunches, and Medicaid.

The cat is out of the bag -- Democrats are eugenicists. And I suppose it will be up to them to decide who to eliminate. Such hypocrites to ignore that the progressive liberals share the same ideology as Hitler's national socialists (Nazis). Sick.

What he is saying is that a program for these purposes would risk being thought of as 'mean-spirited' and oh so "Republican" therefore assuming the compassion with which the Democrats would "eliminate" the "disadvantaged." That's 'equality' for you -- eliminate the disadvantaged. I am sure that the White House and the media could spin it.

The measure was ultimately put on the back burner once they realized that eliminating the poor and uneducated would seriously reduce their voting base.

Ron Weddington's statement is clearly coming from a selfish Jackass. How about the rights of the unborn?
I bet he has never stepped a foot in a soup kitchen or a food pantry to lend a hand to help his fellow man.

They won't need a voting base under a total dictatorship. Or under martial law. Knowing what has been done, cannot be reversed. So the wealthy sit and watch as the cities fall into chaos. Very arrogant statement indeed, to a socialist elite.

Mike, Norwalk

Ahhh yes, the bleeding heart liberal, speaking out both sides of his mouth. It is the religion of socialist patrons (Weddington, Clinton, etc.) that implement the policies that creates the down trodden of which they wish to murder, maim, and torture. One sick and viscous circle ! ! !
