We’re used to Gordon Klingenschmitt saying crazy, paranoid things. This is, after all, the man who claims he can turn gay people straight by casting out demons from their bodies. Here’s his latest: Obamacare is going to “exterminate the elderly, systematically.”
Euthanasia is coming from Obamacare. He already de-funded Medicare Advantage by 800 Billion dollars, taking care away from the elderly to pay young people who refuse to work. Democrats see cost savings by eliminating the red line above. Federal bureaucrats will enforce Obamacare to exterminate the elderly, systematically. We must take a stand.
And by “take a stand,” of course, he means “send me your money.” I report on so much of this stuff that I almost begin to have some weird admiration for the ability of some wingnuts to invent new paranoid conspiracy theories. It seems we are forever just this close to the most horrifying future imaginable, yet that future never comes. I’ll make a prediction: Right wingers will continue to make up shit like this and the fact that their dystopic predictions never actually happen will do nothing to dissuade either them or their followers. Death and taxes are not the only certainties in life.
