GOP Candidate: Euthanize Poor People!

16 May 2018

A gubernatorial candidate in Oklahoma is catching some heat for some comments made on his Facebook account recently. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, host of The Young Turks, break it down.

Republican gubernatorial candidate in Oklahoma proposed euthanasia for people on food stamps who are too disabled to work.

It looks like that idea is inspired by the practice of German old nazi Adolf Hitler, and of Japanese neonazi Satoshi Uematsu. And by the mockery of disabled people by the Republican president of the USA, Donald Trump.

In a Facebook post made by a page purporting to be for Oklahoma governor candidate Christopher Barnett, the administrator initially posted a poll about food stamp requirements — and then made comments claiming euthanasia is a solution to the “issue” of the poor and disabled.

In a post made by Tulsa resident Lisa Schwart, screenshots of the thread from the Chrisforgov campaign page that shares a name with Barnett’s campaign website revealed the comments. “Most receiving food stamps work, or are disabled”, a user commented on the poll post. “Some are elderly.” “The ones who are disabled and can’t work…why are we required to keep them?” the Chrisforgov account responded. “Sorry but euthanasia is cheaper and doesn’t make everyone a slave to the Government [sic].” Defending his now-deleted comments, the account admin mused as to why American taxpayers should “have to keep up people who cannot contribute to society any longer?”

‘WOMP WOMP’ DROPPED Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was axed by his speakers bureau after mocking a 10-year-old with Down syndrome with a now-infamous “womp womp.” Of course, Lewandowski was not dropped by CNN, who had him back on the network Thursday so he could refuse to apologize.

  1. While I am not shocked or surprised at such a comment and the lack of compassion consideration and respect due ALL mankind, especially those who are infirm or unable to take care of themselves, is it not the responsibility of those in authority to assist them?


    • That Republican politician, like more Republican (and also some Democratic) politicians, seems to think his responsibility is to assist the 1% richest people to get even richer.


  2. It’s hard to believe that anyone could be serious… but I suppose that if someone is so benighted as to make such a remark, they probably don’t know any history either, and don’t realise that Hitler had the idea first !!


    • That is a possibility indeed, Valerie. Though he very probably knows of, and approves of, Trump’s recent mocking of disabled people. And though ‘clever’ neonazis like the Daily Stormer Internet site do know a selective distorted lying ‘revisionist’ version of Hitler’s history.


    • Yes, this proposal to kill disabled people is an extreme consequence of the hatred of poor people which is rather widespread in the present Republican party. An influence on this is, eg, Ayn Rand’s far-right novel ‘Atlas shrugged’. Which has a supposedly ‘happy’ end, as all poor people die and only millionaires survive.
