Biden's Coronavirus Advisor Wants Old People To Die, He Told the Elderly to Avoid Flu Shots, Vaccines

Former Vice President Joe Biden — the presumptive Democratic nominee — may not openly support full-on socialized medicine, but his choice of advisors on a new Public Health Advisory Committee is very suspicious. Biden announced the committee as part of his plan to fight the coronavirus, but one of his advisors, Ezekiel Emanuel, published an op-ed in The Atlantic saying he wants to die at age 75 because life simply isn't worth living after that point. The op-ed isn't just personal, either — it attempts to convince the reader that death may be preferable to living in advanced age.

In fact, Emanuel's op-ed goes on to advise the elderly to refuse life-saving medical care — the exact kind of care needed to combat the coronavirus. Given the fact that the coronavirus poses the greatest risk for the elderly, Biden's choice of Emanuel is troubling — if not downright terrifying.

"Here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss," Emanuel writes. "It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic."

Ouch! Try telling older voters that their lives are not worth living in November — see how that will go over at the polls. Yet Emanuel's op-ed is not just insulting to the dignity of the elderly — it actively encourages them to avoid medical care.

Biden's coronavirus advisor actively encourages the elderly to "think of an alternative to succumbing to that slow constriction of activities and aspirations imperceptibly imposed by aging."

What about simple stuff? Flu shots are out. 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.
Yes, Biden's coronavirus advisor encouraged people over 75 to avoid flu shots. Joe Biden himself is 77. Yet Emanuel's advocacy against basic health treatments extends further:

Maybe he's just looking at Joe Biden and extrapolating.

The arrogance of the left is just nauseating.

This quote and the article from Zeke Emanuel go back to '14.

Zeke is afraid of not looking impressive enough to his kids. He's afraid that his family will shun anyone who doesn't look totally in control at all times.

He's a pathetic human being if he taught those values to his kids. As it is, his system (the Whole Lives system that's the basis of Obamacare) leans to giving treatment to taxpayers and killing off both children and the elderly who aren't paying peak income taxes. If a 50 year old taxpayer at peak earnings in their life needs a kidney transplant and a 10 year old child or 70 year old retiree on a pension has one, go ahead and kill the kid or the retiree and harvest their kidney.

I can't wait until somebody decides Zeke Emanuel has lived long enough.

Why does this doddering old fool have a Coronavirus "advisor"? Number 1, he's thankfully not involved in any policy decisions and number 2, aren't CNN and MSNBC reliable enough for him? Mucking Foron
