Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke is no stranger to taking a pro-life position on abortion and highlighting how abortions disproportionately target black babies. Now, Clarke is asking pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to  return an award from the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation named for its racist founder Margaret Sanger.

In fact, Clinton can boast the first-ever endorsement of a candidate in a presidential primary in the nearly 100-year existence of Planned Parenthood. In a statement, Clinton said she was “honored” by the endorsement.

But the presidential endorsement wasn’t the first time Planned Parenthood honored Clinton. In 2009, Clinton proudly accepted Planned Parenthood’s self-described “highest honor,” its coveted Sanger Award. She blushed and gushed that she was “in awe of” the racial eugenicist.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Now, Clarke has tweeted that Clinton should return the award and denounce Sanger’s racist views. In an tweet to journalist Jake Tapper, Clarke asked him to “ask Mrs. Bill Clinton if she’ll return Planned Parenthood founder Sanger award and denounce endorsement.”

Don’t expect Clinton to return the award anytime soon, as Clinton says she admires Sanger:

In April 2009, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry dialogued with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on foreign policy At 4 minutes 25 seconds into this video, Hillary Clinton compares the eugenics advocate and racist Margaret Sanger to Thomas Jefferson. Clinton even seems to say that Sanger is superior to Jefferson.

And here is Hillary Clinton accepting Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award : Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepts the Margaret Sanger Award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas.

Hillary Clinton, ” I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” said Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life”

Margaret Sanger’s racist views have long been established. As writer Eric Metaxas notes:

Sanger wrote about the “deterioration in the human stock” and “the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents, and dependents.” Lest you have any doubt about what this woman of so-called “courage, … tenacity, [and] vision” meant, Sanger was committed to reducing the number of African Americans through contraception.

Quoth Sanger: “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Isn’t it amazing that a woman who said what Sanger did isn’t vilified more generally as a racist intent on eliminating African Americans?
