In 1926, Margaret Sanger spoke to a KKK group, as cited in her Autobiography, (1938):
“Always to me any aroused group was a good group and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing.”
She stated in a radio interview on WFAB Syracuse, February 2, 1924 ("The Meaning of Radio Birth Control," April 1924, p. 111):
"Just think for a moment of the meaning of the word kindergarten — a garden of children ... In this matter we should not do less than follow the example of the professional gardener.
Every expert gardener knows that the individual plant must be properly spaced, rooted in a rich nourishing soil, and provided with sufficient air and sunlight.
He knows that no plant would have a fair chance of life if it were overcrowded or choked by weeds ... If plants, and live stock as well, require space and air, sunlight and love, children need them even more ...
A farmer would rather produce a thousand thoroughbreds than a million runts. How are we to breed a race of human thoroughbreds unless we follow the same plan? We must make this country into a garden of children instead of a disorderly back lot overrun with human weeds."
