- (LPAC) -- Several blogs picked up immediately on the
LPAC report of July 21: "Ezekiel Emanuel: Death to Those With Dementia,
as Useless Eaters." In one case, Newsvine.com linked directly to the
LPAC wire, which in turn generated comments from over 100 readers. While
a few frantic wackos warned against anything coming from LaRouche, nearly
all the responses express shock and rage that such a Nazi is functioning
openly within the Obama Administration.
- Several responses reprint the key paragraph by Emanuel
quoted in the LPAC report, before adding their own comment (that paragraph
by Emanuel: "This civic republican or deliberative democratic conception
of the good provides both procedural and substantive insights for developing
a just allocation of health care resources. Procedurally, it suggests the
need for public forums to deliberate about which health services should
be considered basic and should be socially guaranteed. Substantively, it
suggests services that promote the continuation of the polity - those that
ensure healthy future generations, ensure development of practical reasoning
skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public
deliberation - are to be socially guaranteed as basic. Conversely, services
provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming
participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious
example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.")
- Some of the comments:
- "Hitler would be proud to learn that his ideals
are alive and well with Ezekiel Emanuel.... Do you want a repeat of this?"
- "Now I know who he reminds me of - Joseph Mengele,
the symbol of Hitler's Final Solution."
- "I can tell you that as a mom with a four year old
girl with severe speech apraxia that prevents her from being able to speak
intelligibly, this scares the living hell out of me."
- "From now on, I will ask my doctor if he graduated
from Harvard. If he did, I'll change doctors."
- "That is one of the most cruel and cold-hearted
things that I've ever heard of. He obviously doesn't take into consideration
that most of the people who get Alzheimer's or dementia are people that
have worked hard all of their lives, and paid money into the government
so that when they retire, they supposedly will have the medical care that
- (Responding to a diatribe against LaRouche:) "LaRouche's
article is only pointing out the fact that Ezekiel has published his utopia
of killing the elderly... That has nothing to do with LaRouche, except
thanking him for bringing this atrocity to the masses."
- "What a mess we've made of our country. I never
thought I'd see the day when some idiot who is writing a healthcare bill
would actually be in favor of something like this. The sad part is, for
America, I think I can actually see that happening now. God help us."
- "My dad passed this past year, and in a weird way,
I am glad he is not here to see what has become of this great nation that
he served and sacrificed for as an enlisted man in WWII. It makes me sick
to my stomach. If they try this crap with my mom, they will have one hot
dang fight on their hands."
- Also of note is that at least two of the other blogs
which reproduce the LPAC release also carry the youtube video of Tony Chaitkin
exposing Dr. Mengele Emanuel to his face.
