This isn’t getting a lot of play in the media, mainly because it would require actual reporting and background investigations on the part of journalists, but the word is out now that John Holdren, the “Science Czar” appointed by President Obama, co-authored a book in the 1970s with population scare-mongers Paul and Anne Erlich that advocated forced sterilizations and forced abortions.
While this is certainly as good a reason as any for outrage, I’m not entirely sure why anybody would be surprised by this. One of the hallmarks of the Progressive movement of which Obama is a proud descendent is an absolute contempt for actual living, breathing people hidden under a cloak of a love of “humanity.” The Progressives always loved Mankind and hated people, and this was clearly evident in their advocacy of forced sterilizations, forced abortions, and eugenics in order to strengthen the overall human race.
If that sounds like the Nazis, it should. Fascism, Naziism, and Progressivism were cut from the same cloth and shared many of the same ideological tenets.
What reporter will ask Obama this simple question: “The man you have appointed as ‘Science Czar,’ John Holdren, is the co-author of a book that finds a Constitutional rationale for forced abortions and forced sterilizations, and has advocated, but not disavowed, those policies. Do you think it is appropriate to appoint a man who holds these views to be in charge of science policy for the United States?”
It’s a simple question, but not an easy one. Which is, of course, why no one in the mainstream media will ask it.
