It can fairly be said that Leftists hate people, especially the poor and unwashed. In fact, they believe that people are a severe inconvenience on this Earth, and so they wish they would hurry up and depart post haste. In fact, some of the Lefties concoct ways that can accelerate the extermination, and the Left holds them up as heroes!
Margaret Sanger is the patron saint of Lefties and women’s lib groups. She essentially is the founder of Planned Parenthood, and was a big believer in eugenics. Most women don’t know, but that means she wanted to get rid of the undesirable members of society, such as those who had lower IQ’s, who were poor, and who were minorities. She promoted and encouraged the abortion of black babies because they were less desirable and beneficial to society. You know, more for the rest of us.
Paul Erlich is another Lefty that has garnered awards and praise for years and years. What is his seminal work? The 1968 classic titled “The Population Bomb,” which stated that we were on the verge of mass starvation. Abortion is always the quick answer for these guys, and they also are determined to get rid of all the extra people so that elites like themselves can thrive and survive. The “Green Revolution” put the lie to his theory, but he never recanted. And mostly these folks on the left are convinced that socialism is the answer. Venezuela therefore has a population problem, not a political problem, because the people are starving, and socialism can’t be wrong. It must mean there are just too many people.
Then we come to another ‘genius’ on world population, Sir David Attenborough. He, too, has a pretty low opinion of the proletariat, and says we are headed for extinction. Guess what his solution is?
These Lefties sound like a broken record. It does not matter that they are wrong time after time, or that world hunger has nothing to do with too many people, it has to do with distribution and power. There is an abundance of food in the world, but it cannot be distributed because the worlds tyrants, virtually all of them left or hard left leaning, will not let it happen. Not willing to let facts get in the way, Attenborough holds forth with typical Leftist nonsense:
The television presenter said that humans are threatening their own existence and that of other species by using up the world’s resources.
He said the only way to save the planet from famine and species extinction is to limit human population growth.
“We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times.
Sir David, who is a patron of the Population Matters, has spoken out before about the “frightening explosion in human numbers” and the need for investment in sex education and other voluntary means of limiting population in developing countries.
“We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia; that’s what’s happening. Too many people there. They can’t support themselves — and it’s not an inhuman thing to say. It’s the case. Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a coordinated view about the planet it’s going to get worse and worse.”
