Dear 'Compassionate' Leftists: Your Complicit Silence on Alfie Evans is Deafening
Dear powerful, influential people of the United Kingdom who "love" the children: where is your compassion for the children now?
A royal baby was born to Kate Middleton today. A son. The United Kingdom celebrated this new life, as all new lives should be celebrated. But not far off in the tiny and once great nation, a different child is being slowly murdered by the same state celebrating the birth of another. Alfie Evans is but a commoner. Born to common parents. His birth celebrated by those members of his family, not his nation.
Italy has sent aid in efforts to take this child off your country's statist hands, relieving the NHS of Alfie's financial burden. Wouldn't want a little one like Alfie taking any more of his "fair share" of the NHS's limited resources.
But the UK government is forcing Alfie to die in the UK. Forcing his parents to watch. Not allowing his parents to take him for alternative care in another country at no cost to the UK at all.
One might say there are "no words to describe" what the UK is doing to Alfie Evans. But I have plenty: the treatment is monstrous, murderous, evil, barbaric. Backward. Detestable. Medieval. Hitler-approved. Not becoming of a nation which thinks so highly of itself as it looks down its nose at the rest of the world.
Not worse, but disturbingly, there is nothing but silence from the leftist elite of both the United Kingdom and the United States on Alfie Evan's treatment. J.K. Rowling is quick to lecture about the children of refugees needing a better life. Quick to offer aid to orphans near and far. But has, to my knowledge, said nothing publicly about the plight of Alfie Evans. Where is Jimmy Kimmel with his tears for this small boy who's socialized medical system, which is what someone like Kimmel loves? Where's Bernie Sanders? Hillary Clinton? Nancy Pelosi?
Your silence regards Alfie is a mark of complicity. Since many of you of the elitist left are quick to judge, quick to "speak out" for the children for politically correct causes, but there's nothing but silence for Alfie, what other conclusion am I to draw?
If Alfie was Kate Middleton's son, would not the Queen of England do whatever she could to save Alfie's life? Or would she swallow the hard pill NHS forced down her throat? Could not the Queen of England wave her hand and allow the Italians to take Alfie to Italy for care? Or would she, like so many of Britain's most loyal, brainwashed subjects, agree that the courts of the United Kingdom "know best" for her grandson?
Somehow, I think not.
Leftists in both the UK and the USA are silent about Alfie Evans because they approve. If the government funds the healthcare of its citizenry, does not the government get to decide when to stop funding its citizenry? The power and influence of the state must be protected at all costs. Alfie Evans is but another sacrifice to the altar of the state. As Steven Crowder so eloquently put it:
Alfie Evans is yet another sacrifice at the altar of the state. That's how socialism HAS to end. https://t.co/QEXAbHHvJb— Steven Crowder (@Steven Crowder)1524690013.0
He's right. The collective comes before the individual. Alfie must be sacrificed for the cause of government. His parents have no rights to protect or seek better care of their own child. Only the almighty government can decide what's best for the government's child.
Your continued silence on his treatment only bolsters my belief you approve of it. The state has ruled Alfie is terminal. Therefore Alfie is terminal. His parents wishes matter not once the court has ruled against Alfie's life. So what if one child dies? At least the NHS and your socialist stronghold remain firmly in place. To continue wielding its power over the peasants of the United Kingdom. Who just cannot care for themselves. Bless those poor little serfs.
So if you could, if you would, spare the rest of the world your chiding lectures whenever a child dies tragically. Spare us of your public relations-approved grief. Spare us your tear-filled tweets. Your government is killing sick children with full consent. And you did nothing to stop it.
