Breathtaking Genocidal Evil

You know, watching the total meltdown of political civility that followed the 9/11 massacre has been a trial for all of us. We hear each side accuse the other of being monsters, of being totally destructive abusers of the truth who have no grounds whatsoever of being taken seriously.... blah blah blah blah.

Those who think that global warming is nonsense are referred to as "deniers", as if they were the same sort of individual who denies that the Holocaust occurred. One leading columnist posited this in 2007 and has not yet withdrawn it.

Those Republicans who think that the U.S. government should not be in the health care business are compared to slaveowners and those resisting desegregation .

Those who think that Sarah Palin has something useful to say and to stand for are derided as redneck morons, and Sarah herself degraded and subjected to what has been called almost a public sexual assault: "wilding".

It is, to quote the Squire of Gothos, bad bad craziness.

But it is not often you see explicit and shameless calls for genocide in print.

As here, where one Diane Francis of the Canadian site financialpost.com calls for killing children who are like, oh, me.

The "inconvenient truth" overhanging the UN's Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.

A planetary law, such as China's one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.

...None will work unless a China one-child policy is imposed. Unfortunately, there are powerful opponents. Leaders of the world's big fundamentalist religions preach in favor of procreation and fiercely oppose birth control. And most political leaders in emerging economies perpetuate a disastrous Catch-22: Many children (i. e. sons) stave off hardship in the absence of a social safety net or economic development, which, in turn, prevents protections or development.

China has proven that birth restriction is smart policy.

I hereby formally name Diane Francis of FinancialPost.com as an advocate of mass murder (because that is what the one-child policy implies and requires--the involuntary killing of all children after the first).

She's a bitch, too.

AND the mother of two.

  1. John Holdren,Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology- - informally known as the United States' Science Czar and co-author of the book "Ecoscience" has this woman beat by lightyears in the genocide advocacy sweepstakes.

    Oh wait...it isnt "genocide" if you are proposing a "final solution" to a portion of all populations since "genocide" is technically, targeted at a specific race or ethnicity.

  2. Let us counterpoint two salient examples.

    Killing 10,000 people because they're (say) Bosnian Muslims is an unacceptable act of 'genocide.'

    Well, killing 10,000 people because they're children after the first in a family is also an unacceptable act of 'genocide'.

    The race/ethnic target of the program of example (2) is the "human" race.

    It is depressing to think that an act of killing huge numbers of people merely because of their age doesn't bother people, just because the victims were not of the same or similar ethnic group. Deliberately aborting, say, girls, is evil, but deliberately aborting boys AND girls is not bad. Huh?

    It is as if we cannot prosecute this crime because it is that is so enormous that nobody has come up with a separate word for it yet.
