There’s a fair amount of consternation, online, over that fact that the public aren’t up in arms about the government’s halving of benefits for disabled children. Personally, I’m not surprised at all.
The public, subjected to 18 months of lies and disinformation, demonising and criminalising the chronically sick and disabled, which emanated either directly from Cameron, whose hatred of us knows no bounds and is, arguably, not actually sane, from Osborne, who is simply an incompetent and mendacious shit, and from IDS, who would have problems with the truth even if you put a gun to his head, either directly or dribbled out to the press and the BBC, through a propaganda machine hat would have made Joseph Goebbels cream his jackboots in envy, and which was, and still is, published totally uncritically.
We – the chronically sick and disabled – are officially-sanctioned, government-sponsored, hate figures, and the parallels with the plight of the German Jews in the mid thirties are, as I’ve been saying for over a year, all too real, and with the rise in disability-related hate crime, getting closer all the time.
Is it any surprise, then, that the public, on the whole, don’t give a shit about disabled people, including children?
And, given Cameron’s all to obvious hatred of us as a class (and hell, IDS is giving him a run for his money, too), could the huge reduction in child benefits be seen as a sneaky method of reducing the number of future disabled adults?
Not only would it, to a degree as yet unknown, militate against the very survival of some kids, it would also quite likely generate an increase in foetal screening for disabilities, and subsequent terminations, given how much harder it will become to support a disabled child financially.
Eugenics by benefit reduction…?
