Sara Holbrook joins Margaret Sanger on eugenics watchlist - Seven Days

Reporter Courtney Lamdin reports that 20th century children's rights advocate Sara Holbrook, for whom the North Avenue, Burlington social services center is named, was an active supporter of the eugenics movement - right along with Margaret Sanger, UVM president Guy Bailey, and many other Vermont leaders from a century ago. 



"The executive director of the Sara Holbrook Community Center said leaders of the nonprofit organization learned of the connection about two years ago but decided it wasn't egregious enough to warrant drastic action on their part. The center was in the midst of a multimillion-dollar fundraising campaign for a new facility at the time."

    Sara Holbrook comes from the same cloth of racists as Bertrand Russell, Sir Francis Galton, the Rockefellers, the Carnegies, all progressives of their time. Funding the extermination of the mentally ill, sterilizing inferior breeds as they saw it. These are the same people that gave us the United Nations who tell all of humanity what they can and can not do for a sustainable future. All power in the hands of unelected few. Give me a Trump any day of the week. Trump makes you think about important subjects so you can make up your mind. Eugenicists of today (most progressives) use the government to force you to think the way they think and punish you if you don’t.
