Skip to comments.Beck to the Future: Beck Exposes Dangerous Link Between Nazi Eugenics and ObamaCare Reform Experts
Posted on 08/29/2009 1:02:55 PM PDT by wagglebee
WASHINGTON, D.C., August 27, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - "Question with boldness." That is the motto of radio host and FOX News television host Glenn Beck, who says he asks questions no different than ordinary Americans - he just has an army of researchers to help him explore these questions. But what the question explores is the disturbing relationship between eugenics, Nazism, and the imposition of Obama's health care plan upon the United States.
Like the old adage "those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it," Beck has looked back to the past to get a glimpse of the future. Throughout the past few weeks, Beck has given considerable attention to the Obama Administration centralizing power under the Executive Branch away from Congress through the appointment of more than 31 powerful "Czars" or "special policy advisors" as the Administration prefers to call them.
Beck argues that the Obama administration's appointment of czars unaccountable to Congress, ramming massive legislation through Congress, and especially his health-care plan, bear close resemblance to how Germany's National Socialists consolidated overwhelming powers under the executive led by Adolf Hitler in such a way that strangled democracy in Germany.
Although many people remember the National Socialists for their brutal extermination of the Jews during World War II, Western leaders like Winston Churchill had condemned National Socialism as a regime contrary to the very root of Christian civilization and "guided by the lights of perverted science."
The question Beck asks is, why does Obama surround himself with so many advisors to reform health-care, who do not believe all human lives have equal value?" And one of Obama's czars believes that even after birth, a child is not yet human.
Roots of Nazi Eugenics
"They tried to figure out how much is a life worth and put a price on how much each individual is worth," said Beck, making clear that the logical conclusion is that some lives are worth more than others.
The roots of Germany's eugenics program, however, began in England and the United States. Beck traces its beginning with the social progressives creating laws mandating compulsory sterilization for groups which the state deemed "procreation inadvisable": such as the destitute, criminals, and the mentally disabled, some of the most vulnerable members of society. Illinois passed the first compulsory sterilization law in 1907, and more than 30 other states would follow before the Nazis rise to power in Germany.
One of the most egregious cases of this type of human rights violation is Buck v. Bell in 1927. In that case, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes ruled that Virginia was right to sterilize Carrie Buck against her will because, "three generations of imbeciles are enough." Buck, however, was poor but not mentally disabled. Buck's sister Doris was also sterilized forcibly when she was hospitalized for appendicitis, but she never found out why she could not have children until 1980.
Beck said that "no one is saying that eugenics is coming" or the "master race," but a lesson should be drawn from Germany, which descended down the dark road of perpetuating crimes against humanity once they had accepted the principle that there was "Lebensunwertes Leben" or "life unworthy of life."
Nazi Germany: Cutting Costs By Making Judgments on Quality of Life
For Beck, the idea of "life unworthy of life" gets personal. His daughter has cerebral palsy and he tells his viewers that doctors told him that statistically she would never walk, talk, or feed herself.
"She went to college. They were wrong," Beck says.
But Germany, which provided universal health care, began to view Germans with conditions like cerebral palsy as primarily a drain on health resources that could be allocated to healthier Germans. Beck choked up as he held a Nazi poster that featured a man with cerebral palsy and said it costs 60,000 Marks to keep him alive. Another poster said that the resources spent for one year on a mental institution could have built homes for Germans.
"What happened in Germany was that they could not afford health-care for all," warns Beck.
Beck repeats that he does not mean to say that President Obama is building a euthanasia program, like Germany's T4 program, which put to death around 70,000 human beings they deemed physically or mentally unfit. However, what Obama and his advisors have in common with Germany is the idea that some lives are worth more than others, and in the crisis of the Depression.
But the danger is that since Germany succumbed to National Socialism after its inflationary practices destroyed the economy in 2009, there is a real danger that the enormous national debt of the United States and its inflation of the money supply in order to stimulate the economy could lead to a similar collapse. Such a situation would create, amongst many other dire outcomes, near unavoidable rationing of healthcare.
"If there is a crisis what will they do? Whose voice will he hear?" asks Beck.
Beck says that answer lies with what President Obama himself said on the campaign trail: if one wants to know his policies, then pay attention to his advisors.
So when it comes to health-care reform: four advisors behind the effort deserve special attention: Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel, Health Reform Policy Advisor; John Holdren, Science Czar; Cass Sunstein, the Regulatory Czar; and Van Jones, the Green Jobs Czar.
Another article will detail Beck's unusually frank and alarming revelations about Obama's advisors - revelations made on his Fox television program that is skyrocketing in popularity and which Obama supporters are frantically attempting to shut down.
"What happened in Germany was that they could not afford health-care for all," warns Beck.
And Zero will use the same excuse in America.
“Question with boldness.”

Wesley J. Smith
Terri Schiavos father, Robert Schindler, died last night of apparent heart failure at the age of 72. His health was broken by the ordeal of trying to save his daughters life and he never fully recovered from the horror of watching her dehydrate to death. The family is grieving.
Letters of condolence can be sent to: Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, 5562 Central Avenue ~ Suite 2 St. Petersburg, FL 33707
[Wesley J. Smith is an attorney and an expert on bioethics and more importantly, on bio-ethicists — who the big names are, what they write, whom they influence, etc. Do check out his blog site for interesting and relevant articles on this subject:
Remember the liberal activist who was on television criticizing Sarah Palin because she didn’t have the good sense to abort her ‘retarded’ child? They can’t tell us they’re not supportive of eugenic atrocities!
Down with steven hawkings!what has he ever done productive.
NewRepublic: America’s Future was the title of Glenn Beck’s series. The word ‘Future’ slanted downward in the graphic that entitled all his special series.
I think the reference to a “New Republic” was meant as an affront to Obama’s inner circle and the crap he has around him that have not been vetted by the CIA or the FBI.
I wonder when we will start seeing the "czars" referred to as "fuhrers".
My FIL was born in 1944 Germany, premature (2-3 months). His mom took him to the hospital where they said it was not worth the resources to help him since there was so little chance he would survive anyway. They were sent home. Luckily, she didn’t give up. He just turned 65 this past June.
Wow! That is an incredible story.
My youngest brother was 2 and a half months premature when he was born. The doctors didn’t think he would live and thought that if he did he would be small and weak his whole life. By the time he was a senior in high school he was a nationally ranked cross-country track runner, he went into the Army after college and completed Ranger school (though he was never able to be a Ranger due to a subsequent injury).
My hubby interviewed his Opa in the mid 80’s for an AP history class. He asks many questions about Hitler, the times, why people didn’t stop him, Weimer Republic, etc. He was 10 or so during WW1, so the history account is informative to say the least. It is an amazing video although many people can’t understand the thick accent.
I am glad that your brother got to prove the doctors wrong. I pray that babies will be able to do that forever and not have some government mandate that forbids it.
We thank your brother for his service.
I saw a news bit on Teddy Kennedy’s brain cancer that explained that the life expectancy was extremely low for people with his condition. And the expensive procedures he had to prolong his life by one year had a very poor prognosis, statistically. Under Obamacare, Kennedy would never have received his expensive life extending procedures.
I wish Sarah Palin and others in the spotlight would point this out.
Having a son (30yrs now) with the most severe form of CP (yet brilliant) who is dependent on a trach/mist/o2/feeding tube and other medical care.
I have designed a self how to program for him if this type of selective health care is passed.
We were trained by the best Stanford U ect in grants to communicate (I am his interperator 30yr now) and all his daily care is about hygiene and other things I can do and have done on my own at home.
Docs (God Bless them) have taught me to do (over the years) procedures and tricks of their trade that would normally require day surg or if not done ended his life due.
So I WILL be able allow my son to live albiet without the medical equip and meds ect it would mean his care would take all day as opposes to 4-5 shifts it requires now and he would be less able do to time restraints to go to all his outside of home social events.
But Yes we Will survive.
Before having private ins. back when he was an infant -6yrs I did this kind of care and I just talked to a woman who lost her CP brother in Mexico due to a stomach issue had I met her a year ago I could have gave her Mom some tricks that awesome Docs have taught me.
The other thing I am trying to find out if is fact/fiction is Ezekial Emmanual is claiming to have sister with CP (dont know how severe) so that is suppose to prove he would not have the intent with his ethics to allow the disbaled to die off.
A freeper said that there is no sister in the Emmanual family.
Can anyone verify this?
My point being for those who have severely physically disabled loved ones the Govt Health plan (God willing it will tank before getting lift off) should not be fearful that thier life is going to be ended by the Govt it means you will have to sacrafice enormously and selflessly as God aims us all to do to care for that loved one.
