Joe Biden has named oncologist, bioethicist, and creepy mad scientist Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel to his coronavirus task force, despite the quack’s controversial views on aging. The good doctor believes we should all die at 75, as life is not worth living after that. Speak for yourself, Mengele.
Hmmm, didn’t another government, a foreign one in Berlin in the 1930s, believe in weeding out the weak and aged? Yeah, I think so. By the way, the doctor’s father fought for the Irgun in pre-state Israel. Wonder what his dad would think of his Berlin-centric inclinations?
The controversy stems from an article Emanuel wrote for The Atlantic in 2014, where he stated that he wanted to die at the age of 75, as past that “renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived.” Thus, if you’re over 75 Ezekiel Emanuel wants you dead. 70? Begin to pack for your journey across the River Styx.
Emanuel said that Americans were focused with health treatments in a “valiant effort to cheat death and prolong life as long as possible,” and that “I reject this aspiration. I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive. For many reasons, 75 is a pretty good age to aim to stop,”

Joe Biden is 77. So, Crazed Doc Emmanuel thinks the man who appointed him to his post should be dead. That should make for some interesting staff meetings. The White House weighed in.
“Dying at 75 will not be a tragedy.”
– @JoeBiden’s COVID task force pick, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, on why life is not worth preserving after 75

Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, “A member of Biden’s new coronavirus task force is a lockdown enthusiast who has written that living past 75 isn’t worth it. Americans want our country opened up, not creepy bioethicists who enjoy playing God.”
Emanuel also wrote a paper about “vaccine nationalism.” The paper states, “Public sentiment in some countries for retaining vaccine developed within their borders is strong, and many governments will also try to obtain vaccines produced elsewhere. But an ethical framework has broad relevance even in the face of nationalist attitudes. Rather than simply asserting that might makes right, governments typically appeal to national partiality: a country’s right and duty to prioritize its own citizens…What you end up doing is giving a lot of vaccine to rich countries, which doesn’t seem like the goal of fair and equitable distribution.”
Translation? “If we develop a vaccine we don’t get it first. That would be mean. Everyone else gets it before we do because (see above) we’re ‘rich’.” And this is the guy who will be running the virus program. Oh gee, can’t wait.
