Can death camps be far behind?

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Dec 01, 2004

When they legalized euthanasia in the Netherlands, they said it was only for those who specifically requested it. Then they started killing those who couldn't ask for it themselves, calling it "mercy killing". After sometime they proposed lowering the age of euthanasia to 12 years old or even younger. It was only a matter time before euthanasia and abortion met at a demonic crossroads.

A hospital in the Netherlands has not only proposed guidelines for killing newborns, it has begun doing so and reporting it the government. See, in the Netherlands, you start by breaking the law and then ask the government to change the law.

In August, the main Dutch doctors' association KNMG urged the Health Ministry to create an independent board to review euthanasia cases for terminally ill people "with no free will," including children, the severely mentally retarded, and people left in an irreversible coma after an accident.
Thus the elites will be given free rein to decide the fates of the unwanted, the defectives, those who are burdens on society. Who's next? The homeless? Gypsies? The overpopulating underclass? We can all see where this is headed?

Remember the C.S. Lewis novel "That Hideous Strength" and the sinister organization called N.I.C.E. (the National Institute of Coordinated Experiments)? They were villainous materialists who used the totalitarian rule of law for force opponents into submission and to strip them of their human rights. Doesn't sound so far-fetched anymore.

Anyone want to take bets on when the first death camp will open?

    Is it only me, or does anyone else see the connection between Holland's descent into nihilism and the rise of Islamofascism and the murder of Pim Fortyun and Theo van Gogh? Pure & simple: God is not mocked. Unless Europe returns to Christianity, it's all over for them. At least in the USA we're still putting up a good fight. She said hopefully.

    Not like the Nazi's though. They aren't intrested and killing on race. Only those who cannot help pay the bills. Whatever. It can only last for so long, though.

    Dear Gil, I like your insight. It isn't "today" and "tomorrow..." It isn't "we" (that is adults) and "them" (that is infants and old people) Rather, it is "us" and "NOW" If they hate "them" enough to kill..., then they really hate us ALL, even perhaps enough to kill... given the "right" circumstances.

    With the US, current unfunded social security liability of $54 trillion, 86% of which is due to Medi-care, guess where the next big push for euthenasia will come from. And it won't be just for the indigent, and the defectives. It will be for all those in need of health care but who are judged to have lived their "fair share" of time on this planet. The same elite who push abortion because babies consume too much time and resources won't stop with fetuses.

    And perhaps a further "question" would be in order... When "they" (the death camps) DO appear... Will we do a "story" on it (them)... or will we act???

    It's perfectly clear where it's headed: back to the principles that justified the Nazi camps -- but now, not to benefit a master race, but a consumer society that doesn't want to be burdened with inconvenient people. Evil is perennial. In 'Prince Caspian', the resurrected White Witch tempts Caspian to use her demonic powers to achieve his ends, and says "... whoever heard of a witch that really died? You can always get them back." Well, we've got her back.

    What do you mean, "when the first death camp will open?" The whole point of the story is that the Dutch are operating death camps and have been for years. Only they now take infants into them.
