Instagram Censors Conservative for What He Said About Blacks and Planned Parenthood

Share

A black conservative who was conceived in rape is lashing out at Instagram after the social media site censored a meme he made that criticized abortion provider Planned Parenthood’s targeting of African-American women.

Ryan Bomberger, the meme’s creator, wrote in an article published Monday at LifeSite News that he had wanted to make a political point about Planned Parenthood for World Population Day, July 11.

“The meme juxtaposes the vile, racist and elitist worldview of those in white coats who unapologetically set out to control the population with the same racism that drove the murderous acts of a bunch of cowards in white sheets,” Bomberger wrote.

“The online graphic reads: ‘We kill more black lives in 2 weeks than the KKK lynched in a century … Planned Parenthood: Eugenics. No Matter What.’

“The URL in the meme provides the context of how abortion has become the leading killer in the black community. And finally, an image of a noose appears above those words as an instrument of racial violence (which killed an estimated 3,446 African-Americans).”

The whole package sent Instagram officials into a rage spiral, apparently.

“Instagram deleted our post, threatening to restrict or disable our account if we violate their guidelines again,” Bomberger wrote.

“The meme wasn’t threatening violence — it denounced racial violence, no matter the era. But Titans of Tolerance have no interest in the truth. They can delete our posts, and even our account, but they can’t delete the truth. And of course, there was no due process, no appeal process, no one to reach to correct this injustice. There was no option other than to click OK and the purge was complete.”

In his post, Bomberger wrote that he was simply exposing the racist past of Planned Parenthood — particularly the woman who started it.

Do you think Instagram went too far with this?

“Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, boasted about keynoting a Ku Klux Klan meeting in her autobiography,” he wrote.

“And no, not everyone was a racist in 1938, nor was every political figure open to speaking to a terrorist organization like the KKK. But Sanger found it amusing to address a secret meeting with KKK members and bragged about getting a dozen offers to speak to similar groups…

“Eugen Fischer, the NAZI scientist who conducted heinous experiments in 1906-1908 in Germany’s Shark Island holocaust to try to prove that blacks were inferior to whites, was an esteemed colleague of Sanger’s,” he also noted.

“She included him on her advisory council in her 1927 World Population Conference. Fischer’s work, ‘Principles of Human Heredity and Race Hygiene,’ heavily influenced Hitler’s vile manifesto, ‘Mein Kampf’ (My Struggle).”

These are facts, sadly — and Instagram doesn’t like facts, apparently.

But Bomberger, who has written movingly about his birth mother’s decision to carry him to term and give him up for adoption, is very big on facts. (He calls himself a “factivist.”)

Yes, the image was provocative. However, so are many things on the social media platform. We usually don’t hear about them being taken down like this — and whether liberals want to hear it or not, Bomberger had a point.

It’s a point that the “Deities of Diversity,” as Bomberger called them, didn’t want to hear.
