The Architect Speaks
American Thinker, by Allan Erickson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/16/2013 8:09:55 AM

Ezekiel Emanuel, ObamaCare architect, Ph.D, bioethicist, Harvard M.D., a brilliant man who displays his intelligence by continuing to defend ObamaCare. He is the president´s top healthcare adviser. He is famous for promoting the idea that medical resources should be primarily directed in support of adolescents and young adults. The elderly and infants should take a back seat, especially if medical resources become scarce. Many have accused Ezekiel of advocating a ´bioethical´ stance that would allow the very old and the very young to die, untreated

Poor Ezekiel... His Utopian fantasy is collapsing all around him. Of course, it will always be someone else´s fault.

Ezekiel should move to Afghanistan, Iran, or Iraq. Those people would welcome him and give him the opportunity to enact his Utopian fantasy, as long as it included beheading old folks and killing children.

It´s obvious these folks have never understood or studied the effect of either a free market economy or the spiritual aspects of human life.
I wonder if the concept of God ever enters into their discussions.

When you look at this man and his brother, you see the face of evil. Both are sons of Satan. Their father is a holocaust survivor. Between him and Margaret Sanger, eugenics is their dream. Kill the old and abort as many as you can. Then, we will all be replaced by illegals and their dream of millions on government dole will come true.

"Doctor" Ezekiel Joseph Mengele Emanuel is an evil toad. What he proposes is absolutely no different than what the Nazis did. People, we had better be prepared to resist this, civil disobedience, including civil disobedience. The Dutch medical profession elevated itself by its defiance of Hitler. However, they have also sunk low, low, with euthanasia; Belgium is now proposing euthanasia of children as well. God will judge them, and he will judge this nation, you can be sure, if we do not stand up against this.

Another narcissistic personality disorder with the familiar delusions of grandeur. The curious -and dangerous- thing is that people like this man not only take themselves seriously, they are taken seriously in some quarters by others. But who is Ezekiel Emanuel that we should be mindful of him? How did he become so wise - a source of moral, social and political authority, competent to design and prescribe vast schemes for society? What is it that drives him to pursue such an agenda? Are we supposed to believe that his motives are pure, that he only desires what is best for others? That he knows what is best? What is source of his super-human wisdom? What are the signs by which we can recognize that he possesses it? Why should we not rather regard and dismiss him as a self-righteous, megalomaniacal crank obsessed with the need to meddle in other peoples´ business and to compel them to submit to his private idiosyncrasies about matters there is no reason to think he understands any better, if as well as, anyone else?

There have always been cranks - but they have not always commanded large audiences or been taken as seriously as they are today.

Why is he described as "brilliant"?

He is a wacko ideologue who has a cockamamie idea that has been publicized because his wacko brother was close to a wacko president who picked it up.

We´ve had mad scientist types and social engineers for eons. They are not necessarily brilliant.

Dr. Zeke E-vil is just about a century behind the FACTS of what medicine means and how our society is structured. It´s only in a socialist context that one worries about rationing medical care - or food or water. OUR society is more about managing a plentiful supply of things. Western medicine has a long history of being about relieving pain, the Hippocratic oath is not about dealing death. Zeke should have all of his degrees rescinded, he´s a maroon.

It will be interesting to watch Zeke in the years to come as he approaches age 60 and beyond. Perhaps he will be the first volunteer to waive any type of healthcare so that the young and strong can live to be as old as he is.

Supposedly he is a bioethicist. His views do not seem to square with those of a majority of our citizens. Hopefully no one will consult Zeke over who should be allowed to live and who should die. And that from a Jew! Truth is stranger than fiction. Evil continues to prevail.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day.
