Joe Biden said during the campaign that he would defer to the experts when making decisions on the Coronavirus.
So, it was very telling when he selected Ezekiel Emanuel to be one of his “experts.” Emanuel said during the pandemic that within 4 weeks, 100 million Americans would contract the disease.
It never happened. In fact, worldwide, during the entire pandemic only about 51 million contracted the disease.
And like all liberal Democrats, his idea is to let older Americans die, not by sending people with the disease into nursing homes but just by refusing them vaccines as well as cures for anyone who is elderly.
Emanuel was a chief architect of Obamacare and not surprisingly it was his ides that led to the death panel by denying healthcare for the elderly.
If this is the kind of expert Biden is going to follow, he could actually be a worse president than any of us could ever have imagined. Bidencare could be worse than Obamacare was even.
If that isn’t bad enough, Emanuel is the equivalent of a eugenicist when it comes to the elderly.
In 2014, he wrote a piece for the disgraced Atlantic titled “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” Basically, he sees the elderly as a drain on our health care system and doesn’t believe life is worth living after age 75, which is an interesting belief for a guy advising a 77-year-old presidential candidate about a virus that hits the elderly much, much harder than any other age group.
How crazed are Emanuel’s belief on this subject? The 63-year-old doesn’t believe anyone over age 75 should receive a flu shot.
“Flu shots are out,” Emanuel argued. “Certainly if there were to be a flu pandemic, a younger person who has yet to live a complete life ought to get the vaccine or any antiviral drugs.”
Emanuel is all for rationing healthcare even for things as simple as flu shots and colonoscopies. And the rationing is based on your age and sometimes your health. This man is a monster and if you are over 65 you have good reason to be afraid, Be very very afraid. Kind of odd for a man who is an advisor to a 77-year-old man.
