VIDEO: Cross on Elderly: 'Let's Get Rid of Them a Little Sooner'
MRCTV (Media Research Center TV) ^ | 8/23/2011 | Joe S.

Posted on 08/23/2011 7:24:05 AM PDT by blog.Eyeblast.tv

So-called comedian David Cross appeared on Current TV's Countdown with Keith Olbermann and refers to a study that claims watching one hour of television shortens your life by 22 minutes (not including commercials). He offers up his novel solution of not having to medically support worthless elderly who are "not contributing anything."

This was such a funny joke everyone forgot to laugh...

I question whether either one of them sitting at that desk will last as long as the people they’re discussing. Not because of violence but lifestyle. Of course, they’re not smart enough to consider that...

While he is at it why doesn’t David Cross suggest that elderly people be turned into soylent green? As Bugs Bunny would say, “what a maroon”!

If he gets more and more heat for this he’ll just use the well-used excuse that he was just joking.

No kidding! They'd have to get rid of the entire democrat base! (On second thought, that may not be a bad.....never mind)

David Cross' claim to fame is portraying Ian, the evil band manager who woos Alvin and the Chipmunks into taking part in his self-aggrandizing schemes.

There is a new Chipmunk movie coming out this Christmas - Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked

Let the producers at Fox 2000 Pictures know that you don't appreciate their choice in actors by keeping the kids home from this stinker.

Actually Cross’ true claim to fame is playing Tobias Funke on the Fox series “Arrested Development”.

Here's the truth: the elderly vote Republican. Dems want them dead.

Getting liberals to make jokes about it, then to discuss it, then to come up with 'humane' programs to 'help' the elderly on their trip to the other side ... etc will happen. Jokes are step one - it starts the process of breaking down resistance to the idea.

On the other hand liberals will happily call for the full support of flash mobbers and their 'disabled' mothers, fathers, aunts, and uncles...(because that's their voter base)

This is what I find so utterly depraved and disgusting about the left:

They vehemently oppose the death penalty for the most vile of murderous criminals under any circumstances.

They will not support drug testing for the most vile of leeches who demand an never ending upward spiral of public assistance to support their criminal lifestyles.

And yet, they demand the death penalty either directly (via abortion) or indirectly (via neglect) for the weakest, most innocent and most vulnerable members of our society.

INDEED.

The Marxist globalist oligarchy has long planned to

get rid of the “useless eaters” until the population globally is reduced to 200 million or so.

That’s what Agenda 21 and related plans are all about.

Commediots are merely stooges getting the idea in the public square to desensitize folks first and then sell the idea.

Can you spell

“Logan’s Run?”

or

“THX 1138”
