Oklahoma GOP candidate proposes euthanasia for disabled and poor to avoid food stamps

A Republican gubernatorial candidate in Oklahoma proposed euthanasia for people on food stamps who are too disabled to work.

In a Facebook post made by a page purporting to be for OK governor candidate Christopher Barnett, the administrator initially posted a poll about food stamp requirements — and then made comments claiming euthanasia is a solution to the “issue” of the poor and disabled.

In a post made by Tulsa resident Lisa Schwart, screenshots of the thread from the Chrisforgov campaign page that shares a name with Barnett’s campaign website revealed the comments.

“Most receiving food stamps work, or are disabled,” a user commented on the poll post. “Some are elderly.”

6. "For some reason"

But not a shady one as you're trying to imply.

That reason is that the Facebook comment was posted by the candidate's account, meaning it may have been posted by someone with his campaign, not directly by the candidate.

Of course Raw Story probably should have made the headline a question rather than a statement, as they admit the comments may have been from a staffer. But that's Raw Story.

But don't act like it's all make believe. Barnett - OR - someone with his campaign said “The ones who are disabled and can’t work…why are we required to keep them?” Sorry but euthanasia is cheaper and doesn’t make everyone a slave to the Government”

That's core Righty philosophy whether you want to admit it or not.

Euthanize one $billionaire and you can feed and house every poor and disabled person in Oklahoma for the rest of their lives

unequal health care based on ability to pay (which may be the case in venezuela. neither of us know.) is an attribute of capitalism.

36. You can't possibly be serious.

From CNN (just so you won't complain ...)

"Newborns and the elderly hit hard

Since 2016, newborn deaths have been on the rise, but official records are difficult to come by. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro fired Health Minister Antonieta Caporale in early 2017, days after her department released its first batch of health- related data in two years. It showed soaring infant and maternal mortality rates. Pregnancy-related deaths rose 66% and 11,466 infants died -- a 30% increase.
The governor of Táchira state, Lady Gómez, told CNN recently that three people died in her region on the same day due to power outages. Two of the deaths happened at Hospital Padre Justo de Rubio, where a battery failed. The other death happened in an emergency room, where staff didn't have enough gas to run the hospital's generators. The deaths included a 4-month-old and a 78-year-old man."

43. Germany's Doctors of Death.

I read the whole 4 volume series. Nicely bound leather covers and bindings, printed in Switzerland it says.

The German doctor's would telephone a relative: "Pops had a heart attack." Or, "We are sorry to inform you, your wife and child have tragically died during childbirth."

5 years later, the Germans were still oblivious that their own government had an extensive euthanasia program that was being used against Germans as well as minorities, disabled or anyone they determined to be defective.

This Okie is amateur, if he even said those words.
