A Father Takes a Stand Against the Culture of Death

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’m sure most of us remember the heart-wrenching saga of Terri Schiavo in Florida. In March of 2005, Terri, after doctors pronounced her to be in a permanent vegetative state, despite the fact that she required no life support in the form of breathing tubes or such, her estranged and total bag of crap husband petitioned for and received permission from a judge to pull her feeding and hydration tube so he could collect on her insurance policy. It took 13 days for Terri to finally succumb in rather agonizing fashion. This past March, on the tenth anniversary of her death, Rush Limbaugh declared her death “the day our country hit rock bottom.”

Despite Terri’s family’s willingness to take her home and care for her, the judge still granted the gruesome death sentence. It reminds me of a couple of articles I wrote in 2013 entitled, “Grim Reaper on Wheels” and “Euthanasia Isn’t a Death Penalty…Apparently.”

In them I chronicled the rise of roving death squads in the Netherlands which traveled the countryside euthanizing its citizens and that the practice was gaining traction in other European countries. The Dutch government’s view was that for some who, according to authorities, were suffering – it was for the sufferer’s own good and the good of society. In 2013, “1 in 30 deaths in the Netherlands are [were] from euthanasia.” As of 2013, Holland had six full time “Death Squads.” read more

Grim Reaper on Wheels

For decades the Dutch government has been trying to extradite a war criminal from Germany. His name is Klaas Faber and he was a young Dutchman when the Nazis overran the Netherlands in 1940.


Faber was quick to embrace the Nazi way and volunteered to join the infamous SS. He then enthusiastically moved into the SS Einsatzgruppen (Special Task Force) “roving death squad” that killed countless Dutch Jews, resistance fighters, intellectuals and random Dutch civilians.


It’s interesting that the Dutch government would think Mr. Faber’s crimes so abhorrent for in 2011 they created a group of professionals tasked with doing something quite similar.


In 2011 Dutch health Minister Edith Schippers admitted that “mobile units” were “for patients who met the criteria for euthanasia but whose doctors are unwilling to carry it out.” Dutch citizens are calling these mobile units “roving death squads” like their SS predecessors. Well, that’s only a little chilling! read more
