CBS´s Nancy Giles: Whites
Oppose Abortion ´To Build
Up the Race´

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/13/2012 9:51:52 AM

Wow! On MSNBC´s Melissa Harris-Perry Show Saturday, CBS´s Nancy Giles said the reason white people are "trying to eliminate all these abortions" is "to build up the race" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary, file photo): Host Harris-Perry was discussing with her guests the results of Tuesday´s election by demographic group. When she got her chance to comment, Giles said, "It´s been weird to watch white people report on this." "You know when you just showed that graph of the decline in the numbers," she continued, "I thought, ´Maybe that´s why they´re trying to eliminate

Comments:
And they call us racists. Leftists are such hypocrites and no one will say a word about her outrageous comments. I guess she´s never heard of Margaret Sanger.

Throw our borders wide open to 20 million Eastern European immigrants, just to make it "fair".
Why should Mexico continue to send us illiterate uneducated people, when we can have educated people willing to assimilate from elsewhere.

And she gets paid more than you do, even though she is an obvious idiot with zero comprehension of American history. I blame her, her employers and the viewing audience that enables CBS to stay in business. Too bad there isn´t an alternative, and NO Fox is not an alternative to leftist propaganda.

By that logic, Caucasians would be pro-abortion, advocating to have all Black babies aborted versus just most as it is today. Nancy Giles should be made to wear a scarlet M on her forehead so anyone who still doesn´t know she´s a moron would be so advised.

Nancy, you are sadly very misinformed by your Democrat buddie. It is your own race that are the top clients of Margaret Sanger´s House of Horrors aka Planned Parenthood. Latinos are their second largest client group. When you see white people praying at abortion clinics they are praying for ALL babies and the mothers but if you want to denigrate this issue by color they are praying for mostly Blacks and Latinos to wake up to what the Democrat pushers are selling as "pro-choice" is eugenics for ALL who partake in the bleak solution for races of ALL ethnicities.

17 million black babies aborted since 1973...Blacks account for 13% of the US population but 36% of all abortions...murder rates in the inner cities are bad enough yet black babies are 3 times more likely to be murdered in the womb...this is genocide.

All I know is most of the clients at the Planned Parenthood where I go to pray Saturdays are Black. From what I understand, though the data may be out of date, 30 percent of abortions are of Black children, while Black as a whole is only 12 percent of the country. Still, I don´t keep track of the numbers because actually i do not care. Abortion destroys peace, and is infanticide by another name; that is why i am against it.

Idiot racist should look at the abortion and birth rate statistics of Europe. White Europe is quickly being over-run.

The New York City Department of Public Health needed to publish a study in 2009 to prevent the number of abortions from making the city look like it was a third world city in terms of pregnancies surviving to childhood. For non-Hispanic blacks, the percentage of pregnancies terminated stayed above 40% for very young girls through age 25. Only for the group from 25 to 35 did the percentage fall below 40%. The Hispanic population showed a lower pregnancy rate and a much higher percentage brought to term. Margaret Sanger would be investigating where they were going wrong with the Hispanics.

The numbers don´t lie.

2007, 62,097 abortions reported. Of those 9,288 were black women, a full 42.8 per 1000 black women. The same measurement for white women was 13.8 per 1000. Black women are 3 times more likely to kill their unborn children via abortion than white women.

Blacks, in 2009, as a race committed 37.9% of all murders in the US, most of which were against black victims. Of the total 5890, 4034 were committed by blacks between the age of 17 and 34 and 91% of those were committed by black males.

Statistics aren´t racist. They are just numbers. By these numbers the LBJ´S "Great Society" and Planned Parenthood´s abortion eugenics are working as Sanger intended.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority."

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided.

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

A female transgender student wants an apology from a North Carolina college for being detained by a security officer and sent home for using the women’s bathroom. The 22-year-old freshman, Andraya Williams, believes she was discriminated against during a March 19 incident at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C. because of her looks. The freshman said she was leaving the restroom and going to her social studies class when a female officer stopped her and requested her student ID, according to a statement released by the Transgender Law Center. The officer then laughed while asking the student if

U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin spent the week defending his decision last weekend to attend an event in Corbin, Ky., that most attendees knew was a rally to legalize cockfighting in Kentucky. Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"
