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

Euthanasia Isn’t a Death Penalty…Apparently

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

A few weeks ago I wrote an article entitled “Grim Reaper on Wheels”.  It was regarding the Netherlands increased tolerance and actual promotion of non-voluntary euthanasia.

Holland has sanctioned six national “Roving Death Squads” who travel the countryside in search of candidates that “request” suicide assistance. It started out as a voluntary program but government progressive eugenicists seized the opportunity to expand the “assisted suicide” program into a quality of life program. Ezekiel Emanuel would be proud.

In other words, if one is deemed to be saddled with a poor quality of life such as severe mental retardation, dementia or disease, one would expect a visit from the “Roving Death Squad”.

After all, it’s neither compassionate nor fair to expect one to live a life of pain and anguish. It’s for your own good and the good of society. As I stated in the Grim Reaper article, this is how it started in the Nazi regime.

And as is typical of Europe; it’s progressive monkey see, monkey do. Other countries are adopting this compassionate practice.

So I found it ironic when last week I discovered an article by Lachlan Markay entitled, “European Union Financing Efforts to End Death Penalty in U.S.”. What? 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
