What they actually wanted was segregation, but they will now settle for incarceration and murder of all, or most non-white men and women.

Planned parenthood to the GOP in 1972 was all about keeping black babies from happening.

Republicans weren't invading people's lives? I don't believe the wider conservative movement was ever interested in letting anyone's freak flag fly, much less anytime in recent memory. Certainly not since they went fully evil by embracing the dixiecrats and then went full john birch/racist/religious zealotry.

optikeye: Planned parenthood to the GOP in 1972 was all about keeping black babies from happening.


No it wasn't. In 1916 when it was founded almost every married woman was dying from childbirth after about their twentieth pregnancy, due to the unavailability of convenient birth control.

They're fascists. Religion is a tool of oppression to them. There are a few Conservatives in America, but most were actually fascists wearing a mask while out of power. The mask fell away when the corrupt failed former President pandered to these monsters.

Nixon...  Well, maybe...

On Jan. 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court struck down laws criminalizing abortion in Roe v. Wade, President Richard M. Nixon made no public statement. But the next day, newly released tapes reveal, he privately expressed ambivalence.

Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster "permissiveness," and said that "it breaks the family." But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases--like interracial pregnancies, he said.

"There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white," he told an aide, before adding, "Or a rape."

/Technically, he still wanted to intrude on private decisions, as long as it meant preventing mixed-race children from being born...

There's been Prohibition, Red Scare, Reefer Madness, Satanic Panic, Moral Majority, Bathroom Police, and probably dozens of other forms of paternalistic fearmongering I can't call to mind right now.  From before I was born (early 80s) and probably until well beyond my life span conservatives will never not be losing the last few scraps of their minds over imaginary monsters so they can pretend to ignore the very real horrors in their midst with some semblance of what their delusions perceive as dignity.

I said a few days ago I miss when they were just Conservative lol. Don't think one needs to keep a logbook of names, dates, and every viewpoint to see the current GOP is way more fascist and zealous than ever.

Shiat it was only a decade ago they were preaching about keeping govt out of things that didn't concern the govt. It's pretty close to a 360 on some topics.

optikeye: Planned parenthood to the GOP in 1972 was all about keeping black babies from happening.


Maybe, if you are talking about the GOP west of Colorado where Goldwater, Reagan, and Nixon were from.  In 1972 in the South Eastern United States, and in many parts of the East, the GOP was still the party of Lincoln that fought to free the slaves, and opposed Jim Crow.  Out west though, there were no Dixiecrats, so the Republicans had evolved into Law and Order Republicans, which was how they tried to dress up their hatred of blacks, Latinos, and Asians, all three groups they were actively trying to exclude from participation in society.  Eventually these West Coast Republicans would join up with Southern Democrats, who needed a new image to hide their toxic past, so it was natural for them to join up and form the modern conservative movement.  1972 would be at the early part of this change.

And her involvement in the eugenics movement, which sadly was common in that era - has been used by fundamentally dishonest people as an avenue of bad-faith attacks on Planned Parenthood.

Yes, that is also true. But as you say, it was common in that era.
Note, I wasn't attacking Planned Parenthood....but it does have a history to be acknowledged, as does most people of that era in the USA. It really wasn't started for 'women's health'.

They've been trying to control who's allowed to do one with their genitalia, who's allowed to love who, and who's allowed to control whether or not they have kids for basically as long as they've existed in their modern incarnation - at least 100 years. They've also created a surveillance state under Bush - which is NOT the first time they've done it, see McCarthyism. Additionally, they've been trying to outlaw porn, hate the 4th amendment, and are perfectly fine with companies like Facebook making billions by tracking and harvesting your activity. They have NEVER respected privacy or private lives.

The Patriot Act was the most extreme invasion of privacy in modern US history.
Overturning Roe and Casey will make 2002 look like an innocent time.
The GOP have been building towards this for many years.  Besides the Patriot act, we had state sanctioned torture, murder, imprisonment without the right to a trial, civil asset forfeiture, repeal of critical pieces of the voting rights act, Citizens United, Chief Justice Roberts hiding #45's tax returns from congress and federal prosecutors, and justice Thomas and his wife Ginny's organizing/funding/participating in the January 6th coup attempt.
It really looks like the SCOTUS is trying to destroy this country and install a dictator doesn't it?

Some of Nixon's best states in '72 were in the Southeast, and the trend had begun way before '72.

AL:  72.43
FL:  71.91
GA:  75.04 (his second-best state)
MS:  78.20 (his best state)
NC: 69.46
SC:  70.58
