Joy Reid: 'Planned Parenthood Is Not a Eugenicist Organization!'


<p>MSNBC&rsquo;s Joy Reid was back at it again, Saturday, shouting down a conservative guest when they talked about the facts she wants to remain hidden. This time she shouted down Alfonso Aguilar, the President of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, for daring to mention Planned Parenthood and Founder Margaret Sanger&rsquo;s entrenched past in the eugenics movement. &ldquo;<strong>Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization,</strong>&rdquo; Reid exclaimed loudly on <em>AM Joy</em>, &ldquo;<strong>I think that is incredibly offensive.</strong>&rdquo;</p>

<p>Reid had brought Aguilar onto her show to talk about Steve Bannon&rsquo;s influence on the Donald Trump campaign, and Bannon&rsquo;s deep connections with the alt-right movement. But Aguilar turned the tables on Reid when he shifted the conversation to a controversial figure Hillary Clinton openly associates herself with: &nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>I think if we&#39;re going to play that same game, then we have to challenge Hillary Clinton, for example, when she says that she is an admirer of Margaret Sanger, for example, the founder of Planned Parenthood, an avowed eugenicist, who believed that people of color and unborn were undesirables. I mean, is she going to distance herself&mdash;</strong></p>

<p>Reid didn&rsquo;t appreciate that shot at Clinton, saying, &ldquo;<strong>Alfonso, eh, with all due respect, Margaret Sanger is dead and not running the Hillary Clinton campaign,</strong>&rdquo; before moving on to the other members of the panel.</p>

<p>But Aguilar would not let the facts rest. He brought it up again the next chance he had, and argued that it was a double standard that Clinton&rsquo;s willful associations were not being scrutinized the way Trump&rsquo;s were. &ldquo;<strong>You&rsquo;re mentioning a dead person for many decades,</strong>&rdquo; Reid spat in frustration while trying to move away from Aguilar. As he started to talk about Planned Parenthood Reid tried to shut him up, exclaiming, &ldquo;<strong>Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization!</strong>&rdquo; Reid followed up by claiming that Aguilar was somehow being &ldquo;<strong>incredibly offensive.</strong>&rdquo;</p>

<p>Shouting that a guest is being offensive to her seems to be a defense mechanism designed to keep facts that are damaging to liberals a secret. She did the same thing almost a month prior when she shouted down a guest for &ldquo;<a href="…; target="_blank">inventing</a>&rdquo; the fact that there are roughly 33,000 missing e-mails from Clinton&rsquo;s private server. She shouted the guest down saying, &ldquo;<strong>You cannot say things &mdash; You&rsquo;re putting out incredibly inflammatory information.</strong>&rdquo;</p>
