Amanda Marcotte accuses Mitt Romney of supporting eugenics

On April 27th, Mitt Romney gave an address at Southern Virginia University. In the course of a 17-minute long speech, Romney mentioned that he thinks college graduates should marry young and have lots of babies.

“If you meet someone you love, get married. Have a quiver-full of kids if you can,” he said.

To sane people, this of course is completely innocuous advice.

But for some on the Left, it was just too much to take.

Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill, for example, called Romney a “religious fanatic”:

Amanda Marcotte took the attack one step further, ludicrously accusing Romney of espousing eugenics. Yes, really:

We thought these tweets might be from a parody account, but no. That’s Marcotte’s actual Twitter account.

As Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey said, “There are fanatics in this conversation … but Romney isn’t one of them.”

      Accusing others to make herself self feel better about her own abortions.

      • GaryTheBrave

        I don’t know anything about her so how many abortions has she had?

    • Krokamo

      Marcotte is so racist she thinks only white people are capable of going to college and marrying someone.

    Jeez, take a pill Mandy. Some of us just love babies.

    • CatHerder

      Of course, the flip side is encouraging minorities to abort theirs. Hmm…?

        OUCH! Poignant, and damning.

      That would make you a religious fanatic, right? These people are way beyond help.

  • Bemani Dog

    Was Marcotte in a coma for the past year? She does know Mitt Romney isn’t running for anything, right?

    • mickeyco

      Bush isn’t either, but they’re still after him.

      • Junie3

        That was a long time ago, as Jay Carney says.

  • tops116

    Should Marcotte really be talking about “submissive followers?” She reacts to everything someone tells her without bothering to find out what’s actually going on.

    • Gary Freeman

      Which coincidentally, is how all liberals make their voting decisions.

  • Steve_J

    Eugenics, wouldn’t that be a pet project of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood?

    • Garth Haycock

      Yes it would. And it seems that this Marcotte woman believes that Romney is telling those graduates to follow Sanger’s advice.

      Yeah, I know. It doesn’t make any sense to me either.

  • D Dunlap

    Amanda Marcotte is already a parody of a rational human being, and the fools on CNN don’t even rate that highly

  • I M Free

    conservatives: go marry and have babies, work hard and teach them values.

    liberals: go have sex and if you get pregnant go to planned parenthood for abortion and if you become a single mom, go get gov’t welfare.

    clear contrast, huh!?!

    • Gary Freeman

      Yeah, and which one is painted as the evil stance?

    • Frank Drebin

      On the one hand – Graduate, get a decent paying job, have as many kids as you can afford.

      On the other hand – “Somebody needs to be held accountable, and they need to pay.”

    • wwbdinct

      Good point.

  • $23089169

    What a misguided and unhappy young woman she is. Everything she writes is full of anger and venom. Perhaps someday she will find love and realize the joys of having children.

    I am not a Mormon and do not understand all of their doctrines. However, I’ve never been treated with anything but tremendous respect by Mormon neighbors and business colleagues. I’ve been fortunate to have several Mormon men mentor me early in my career. In truth, I received better treatment from professional Mormon men than I did from “feminist” women, especially when I decided to combine a career with family. It was the feminists who treated me like my career was over and that I was failing “the cause” while my male colleagues treated me with great respect (AND continued to promote me!)

    “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
    “Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”
    Margaret Sanger.

      sometimes I wonder if at all possible, but then they prove it with people like this…who unfortunately have voting rights.

  • grais

    Republicans are telling white people to breed more? Mitt Romney is “Republicans?”
    Southern Virginia University has only white graduates? Or Mitt was only talking to the white ones? “Quite literally?”

    Does this woman have a history of drug use?
    Someone who cares about her should get her the help she needs.

  • Expat61

    I am pretty sure that it is the Democrat Progressive’s Peoples Republic, and their Icon, Margret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who advocated using abortion to get rid of the brown and black people in the USA, who are the Eugenists. Forty percent of babies aborted belong to African Americans in the USA. Strange stance, that the innocent in the womb should be killed, but it is inhumane to execute murders, rapists, and child molesters. Progressives/Liberals/Socialists/Communists are deranged.

    • Christoph DeHaven

      Precisely. PP’s real slogan: Black people–safe, legal, rare.

  • Richard Jefferies

    Open mouth, insert foot. Of course nobody noticed. Hey Amanda, why don’t you take five seconds and blow the dust off a dictionary and look up the word eugenics.

    such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits

    I’m pretty sure that’s what the abortion crusaders are advocating when they use rhetoric about being forced to carry a diseased fetus in their body. Only someone so colossally stupid would think to apply philosophies they themselves wholly embrace –to their opponents as a negative.

  • TocksNedlog

    Only a progressive commie maggot would see ‘allowing nature to take its course’ as a program of eugenics.

  • Gordon

    Says the disciple of Margaret Sanger. Geez that Marcotte scares the hell out of me. She is so ideological and angry that reason doesn’t work anymore. I have no doubt she would order thousands to re-education camps if given the chance.

    • wwbdinct

      But I’ll bet you she’s not so tough one on one! Just a loud mouth, feminazi full of bluster and BS!

    It’s the Left’s playbook. Commit massive election fraud, claim the opposition is rigging elections. Support Nazi ideology, call the opposition Nazis. Support the eugenics-based genocide that is abortion, call the opposition eugenicists.

    Only in Liberal world does taxes mean Investment, pro choice means murdering unborn babies,George Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, Work Place Violence means terrorism, and Eugenics means have lots of babies ….. my goodness

  • detroit19

    Wow! Thank goodness we have abortion death squads with the welfare/amnesty/death-to-all-inconvenient ‘ball of cells’, future gimme generation’s view balancing out Mitt Romney’s life affirming view. I know I’ll sleep better, hopefully before I become the ‘too old version of the current death culture.’ Blessed that my children still value human life/have morals.

  • DavidKramer

    Can we split the country already, I am sick of listening to these insane freaks. Hey Obama suggested the two state solution for Israel, why not a two state solution for the US?

  • Cy

    How ridiculously racist do you have to be to hear “fall in love and have a lot of kids” and somehow think it means “minorities are having too many babies, so have white babies and brainwash them to vote Republican”? This chick seriously needs medication.

  • Bob McLeod

    Romney was quoting and applying the Bible verse Psa. 127:5 discussing children “blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”

    “quite literally” Amanda, Romney’s choice of “Quiver” and “full” are quoting the Bible, a verse well known to Christians and his audience re: children and a common blessing among Christians of their future children..

    Sad to think how quickly someone wants to jump to impure motives.

  • Christoph DeHaven

    Amanda, why don’t you read up on the history and present-day policies) of Planned Parenthood? Margaret Sanger was this country’s foremost proponent of eugenics, and abortion was her recommended method. Even today I have heard–in person–PP speakers refer to unwanted children as “weeds.” Mitt Romney’s speech was the opposite of that.

  • Brian H (wackobird)

    Wow, just wow……..I sure hope someone points out a definition of eugenics to her. Then again, might cause a psychotic break of some sort. The left is never wrong you see.

  • Gary Freeman

    I guess libs are offended by Romney saying this because he wasn’t saying, “make sure you abort as many babies in your lifetime as you can!”

  • carlloeber

    Romney’s advise was simple wisdom except that it is so strange to the hears of these latter day generations .. it is just something your father should have told you ..

    • GaryTheBrave

      She probably considers having babies is the man’s way of enslaving his wife.

    My this amanda mar cootie thing is an idiot. mandy honey if you think the right is going to breed libturds like you out of existence, you can have babies.


  • Rulz

    I hope that social conservatives continue to have kids while the party of abortion on demand, contraception and so-called “gay marriage” breeds itself out.

    “As the country becomes more racially diverse, one should be clear what Republicans are doing when they tell white people to breed more.”

    It’s called continuing civilization. Even Hispanic and Muslim birthrates are on the downswing .

  • descolada9

    Is she a Planned Parenthood or “pro-choice” supporter? If so, she is the eugenicist.

  • Lee Mc Donald

    She’s accusing him of eugenics? Of wanting “WHITE” people to breed so they can keep “The Majority”? Was he speaking at a “WHITES” only college, or were there only white people there? Since the answer is most likely “no”, that self-loathing “person” should stick her head back up her arse. The oxygen is eating her brain.

  • Karl Winrich

    Well then if the right is just going to breed submissive followers then they should eventually win every election, since the left just kills their unborn off, Oh wait….they still get to vote even after being aborted!.

    I still am willing to bet that winning elections because of submissive voters is better than winning by subversion, deceit, obfuscation, and coercion.

  • misterp

    UMMM MARGARET SANGER??? FDR?? EUGENICS is an ENTIRELY left wing creation! Anti-reliious creation at that. Charles DARWIN?? HELLO????

  • stuckinIL4now

    And who the blank is Amanda Marcotte?


    The libturded answer is to have as much promiscuous sex as possible (especially gay sex), and abort as many babes as possible in the process.

  • W Randall

    Well since the left is pro gay marriage and they are killing babies at an alarming rate, it stands to reason that their views are at risk of extinction. That is the reason they have to try and force their influence into schools and colleges on our children, they try to influence the Hispanic vote with free amnesty, they push for no voter ID requirements to aid in their voter fraud, all on top of trying to destroy conservative values and morals with their false attacks and outright lies.

  • gjsmith_62

    “Quite literally, the “quiver full” argument”

    She’s a “writer”? Guess she gets her arguments from a quiver as well. Problem is it is literally empty. Does she believe kids should be in a quiver literally?

    She’s a real genius and probably shouldn’t “breed”. Literally.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Only the whack jobs on the left could turn what Romney said into a Eugenics argument….these people are completely deranged in their attempts to smear those who don’t agree with them. She also shows a COMPLETE ignorance of what eugenics was about in her comparison. Just about what you expect from ‘journalists’ today.

  • Philip Ronestone

    When did it become evil to get married and have children? Crikey, what’s wrong with these people who heap guilt on women who have a desire to marry and have a family. This story is as sick and twisted as it gets.

  • JR48

    Uh, the only eugenics going on is the left encouraging the destruction of certain minority groups because of abortion.

    Amanda Marcotte keeps using that word, I don’t think it means what she thinks it means.

    This is why I say the white liberal has a mental defect…They are the only group of people in the history of the world to yearn for the downgrade,decline and extinction of their own race.

  • HoneyTree EvilEye

    Wait…we’re the ones “breeding” submissive followers? I guess since white Libs don’t see fit to have children they’re not breeding their own. They’re just brainwashing the students whose Liberal parents already laid the groundwork.

  • Robby Gregg

    wow get lifes you leftist loons

  • camnpat

    A feminist who likely considers marriage and kids as something that keeps women down. Why am I not surprised she would say something this ridiculous?

    In her world women don’t get married because that’s some sort of prison. As a result the idea of having a baby goes from being a shared blessing, commitment, and sacrifice by both partners to being a hindrance no better than an infection that only women can get.

    • Mark81150

      Sadly.. some if not many arch feminist zealots see it that way, in their world, men are unfit by the nature of their gender to have an opinion.. They are merely permitted to parrot her idiot point of view.. or else they’re worser thans them Nazi guys.. whom she’d swear to you were ONLY men..

      This is a brain dead fanatic so deep dipped in dogma, she can’t even see what a hateful liar she has become..

  • Zathras11 @B5

    Amanda Marcotte has no grasp of history. The Nazis wanted to know what they did wrong, because they had simply followed the eugenics theories preached by American Progressives (sic). She might also be surprised to learn that DemocRATS started the KKK (and several famous members were prominent Democrat politicians; Harry Truman, Robert Byrd).

    • jb1111

      Who is Amanda Marcotte anyway ??

      I’d bet she was a hate spewing bigot long before Gosnell.. and guilt is something she’s only a carrier for, inflicting on others what she lacks herself… no shame, no guilt, no conscience..

      She smears and hates.. because that’s what fanatical leftists do..

      being a compassionate, empathetic human being, requires integrity, honesty, a moral compass, and the deep wisdom to know, they have no lock on truth, if they must lie to advance it, just the opposite.

    or is that reserved for people on the right, who get accused by these brain dead a-holes of racism just for existing on their planet?

    The thing is you MSNBCRAZY leftists..

    We’ve been laughing at your moronic philosophy for YEARS.. The hard left progressive is the only creature on earth, sorry for having existed, but the punishment they call for, isn’t on them, but on everyone else..

  • Mark81150

    Mitt Romney, politics aside, is a good and decent man who gives freely and easily of his own fortune to those in need.. He dwarfed the charitable contributions of the top ten democrats.. giving away 16% of his fortune..

    She screams “choice”.. but makes it damned clear, the only “choice” she accepts, is one she would pick.. everyone else is a Nazi eugenicist on her planet crazy.

    “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” — Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood
