If the US is Nineveh, Then Canada is Sodom

Mass euthanasia is already an epidemic in North America.

By John Zmirak Published on August 29, 2022

Some 14 years ago I published a satire, a funny piece meant to point up a deadly serious subject. A leader of the official ob-gyn organization in Canada had publicly denounced then-Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Why? Because she had said that she was glad she hadn’t aborted her Down Syndrome child. And the Canadian doctor worried that she might influence Canadian parents to do the same. To welcome the child God had sent them, instead of killing it. She ought to be silent, this Canadian doctor demanded.

So I wrote a piece called “Kill More Canadians.” In it, I pretended that I wished to empty Canada of all its current inhabitants, so the U.S. could annex it and make it a theme park. And I praised the abortion-happy doctor for helping us get a start on “culling the herd” in the Great White North:

The process of gradually clearing out the blank space on the map which lies to our North — I’ve always called it The Annex — should be accomplished in classic Canadian style: with deference, almost with diffidence. There is no call for broken windows or blood on the ice. As we gain for our overcrowded nation a measure of much-craved living space, we owe it to the brooding, bleating herds of lumbering Canucks to ensure that their last days are spent in peace and comfort.

I invite you to go read the piece.

Canada: Five Years Ahead of the U.S. on the Road to Hell

Sadly, that piece has aged all too well. The culture of death in North America advances inexorably, a little more quickly in Canada than in America. Here as in other indicators of decline (think of the savage crackdown on the truckers’ protest) Canada is five years ahead of the United States, on the slippery Gadarene slope that leads down to the sea.

My old friend, the intrepid conservative journalist Richard Poe, called my attention to what’s happening more quickly in Canada than here. The facts are appalling, if not exactly surprising. I beg you to go through the whole of this sobering Twitter thread which Richard posted:

Don’t Laugh. We’re Next.

Do you think the U.S. is immune to this brutal, utilitarian killing of the helpless and the innocent? Far from it. Leave abortion aside for the moment, and the crass vivisection of unborn babies for the production of untested, dangerous vaccines.

During COVID we witnessed in practice a mass euthanasia of patients in nursing homes. Too many even on the right still tell themselves the thousands of COVID deaths in such facilities were the result of Democrats’ “incompetence” or “apathy” or “cluelessness.”

I don’t believe it. Not for a second. All that death was premeditated and intentional, as I argued here back in May. I’ll repeat the salient points, which I believe justify us in speaking of the Blue State Nursing Home Genocide of 2020:

  • When the COVID panic first really took hold, fueled by credulous media, Joe Biden chose as his chief advisor on COVID … Ezekiel Emanuel. Emanuel has publicly said that there is “no reason” for anyone to live past age 75. In fact, the government and hospitals ought to withhold life-saving medicines for anyone over that age.
  • Governors in the largest blue states, such as New York, Michigan, New Jersey, and California (among others)… forced nursing homes to admit thousands of COVID patients. That action caused a quick spread of infections throughout those homes, killing uncounted tens of thousands of Korean War veterans and grandmas.
  • Governors did this claiming they needed hospital beds for new COVID patients. Yet in New York, thousands of hospital beds went vacant and unused — at the Javits Center, at Samaritan’s Purse, on the U.S.S. Comfort. So that clearly wasn’t the real reason.
  • These nursing home deaths created a sudden spike in the death statistics in those blue states, which Democrat governors used as a pretext for total lockdowns. In New York, Cuomo cited a state of “COVID emergency” in an executive order seizing guns. In Michigan, Whitmer violated the state constitution with her power-grab, only later getting rebuked by her state’s supreme court.
  • One casualty of the COVID panic was election security. Months of voting by mail were suddenly authorized, along with insecure drop-boxes where election fraud could flourish — as the new film 2000 Mules documents with devastating effect.

Don’t Miss the Little “Tells” That Reveal the Left’s Hidden Cards

An old saying goes, “When someone shows you what he really is by his actions, believe him.” When vaccine fascists went on social media and wished mass death on the unvaccinated, they meant it. When public officials in once-free countries like Australia and New Zealand said there was “no room” in society for people who didn’t comply, they meant it.

When Bill Gates says he wants a global population reduction in the billions, he means it, too. Likewise when transhumanist “big brain” Yuval Harari says: “We just don’t need the vast majority of the population,” I believe he’s stating his beliefs quite sincerely. Here he is giving a TED talk to his fellow “elites,” explaining the uselessness of … everyone who doesn’t get invited to go to TED talks.

When I say that we’re facing not people confused by bad ideas, but elites possessed by demons, I mean it too.
