This time, she’s talking about the Obama health-care plan, “reinforcing” the euthanasia, death-to-old-people fantasies of the extreme wing-nuts and ditto-heads. On her Facebook profile (way to be hip with the kids, yo), The Daily Beast reports, Sarah Palin stated on Friday “that health-care reform, or what Palin calls Obama's ‘death panel,’ may kill her infant son, Trig”. Here’s what she had to say:
“The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil”
She’s referring to page 425 of the House Democrats’ bill, which has nothing to do with euthanasia, just what voluntary options will be available to the elderly to help them decide what to do about their care, should they require certain procedures or help if they become too infirm to care for themselves. The Daily Beast again:
“As for Palin's description of mandatory Sparta-style murder of Down Syndrome babies, the paranoid vision doesn't match up with any component of any health care plan being discussed.”
Once again, Palin is using her children for political gain – despite slamming the Media for talking about her children, as well as warning them against bothering the new Alaskan governor’s family. By bringing Trig into things, he’s going to be referred to again and again as people try to (once again) figure out what planet Palin’s actually from.
