Imagine an ice cream van cruising down your street, playing old Lawrence Welk tunes. Old people would gather with their walkers and canes, enter the van to be euthanized.
This would be reminiscent of the 14th century, when during the Black Plague carts were pushed down the street with men yelling, “Bring out your dead,” a scene was hilariously depicted in the movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” but if the Left get their way, reality would imitate art.
British feminist celebrity Katie Hopkins has proposed that the old be euthanized in exactly that way. In an interview with Radio Times magazine, as reported in The Mirror, Hopkins said:
“’We just have far too many old people.’
She added: ‘It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.’
Asked for her solution, she said: “Easy. Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home.”
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant added: “It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans.
We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.’”
Hopkins is no stranger to outrageous and controversial comments. She once mocked dementia patients on Twitter, stating they take up too many hospital beds and should be “put to sleep.” Back in April, she described migrants as “cockroaches” and “feral humans.” I can see Hillary Clinton handing over her crown of Ms Margaret Sanger to this feminists!
According to The Mirror, she wrote a column in The Sun entitled, “Rescue boats? I’d use gunships to stop migrants“.
The 40-year old Hopkins is unmarried and the mother of three might well watch her words. Liberals raise self-centered brats, so this vile example of feminism might find herself a prime candidate for soylent green.
Here’s a bit of entertainment irony. Hopkins is launching her own panel show next month called “If Katie Hopkins Ruled The World.” The network didn’t pull the show and it appears she’s not being penalized in any way. Contrast that with what happened to Donald Trump when he made controversial comments about Mexican illegals. Trump didn’t threaten to kill them, but to merely enforce America’s laws, and NBC pulled his show “Celebrity Apprentice.” Next, Univision canceled his deal to televise the Miss USA pageant and Macy’s pulled his ties off the rack.
Compared to Hopkins, I’d nominate Trump for sainthood.
