But every once in a while, something comes along that makes me think Republicans are truly evil creatures. This is one of those times, and it was comments made by former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett that caused that lump of vomit return to the back of my throat.
Bill Bennett was responding to a comment from a caller asserting that part of our Social Security troubles is due to the abortions we have had over the past 30 years (i.e. lost revenue). Bennett tied to tie in the claim that crime is down over the past 30 years because of abortion... but, he didn't stop there.
From the September 28 broadcast of Salem Radio Network's Bill Bennett's Morning in America:
But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down.
Its good to know that this man has his own conservitive radio talk show. It just warms the cockles of my heart to that crap is being spewed on the air.
