‘The planet is too crowded – let’s kill the right people’

During a recent appearance on the StarTalk Radio Show, Real Time host Bill Maher expressed his desire to see more people killed via abortion, suicides and the death penalty because “the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”
Asked by host Neil deGrasse Tyson what he thought about the death penalty and abortion, Maher re-affirmed his support for both, remarking, “The Pope is consistently pro-life, I am consistently pro-death.”
Expressing how he was pro-death penalty, Maher said, “my motto is let’s kill the right people.”
“I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving – that’s what I’m for,” said Maher, adding, “It’s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”
Explaining how he knew many people who felt the same, Maher went on to say that “people who’ve earned it” deserved to die, remarking, “kill the right people.”
The HBO host emphasized how he disagreed with the notion that all life is precious, referring to an argument made by Rick Santorum that prenatal testing should not be covered by the government because it encourages people to have abortions.
“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that,” said Maher, expressing his support for abortion and noting, “It’s not that hard to create life, it’s teeming everywhere, it’s something a dog can do.”
Maher’s eugenicist views are shared by many liberals and others who consider themselves to be part of the elite.
As we highlighted in a separate article today, a biotech scientist who works for a well known company recently contacted health blogger Anthony Gucciardi to express his joy at how genetically modified food causes infertility.
“If this **** causes infertility… Awesome!!” wrote the scientist, adding, “The world is over-populated, and people need to stop having children. This is one of earth’s largest problems….This is why GMO is actually saving the planet.”
Maher’s overpopulation schtick is not only highly offensive – it is completely inaccurate.
The UN Population Division’s own figures show that by 2020, that population is set to stabilize in 2020 and then drop dramatically after 2050 and indeed that underpopulation is going to be the real long term issue. As the Economist reported, “Fertility is falling and families are shrinking in places— such as Brazil, Indonesia, and even parts of India—that people think of as teeming with children. As our briefing shows, the fertility rate of half the world is now 2.1 or less—the magic number that is consistent with a stable population and is usually called “the replacement rate of fertility”. Sometime between 2020 and 2050 the world’s fertility rate will fall below the global replacement rate.”
Meanwhile, in coutnries like Russia, the government is having to incentrivise and beg its citizens to have children in a desperate effort to head off a “frightening” population decline.
As the video below clearly documents, the overpopulation bomb is a complete myth.
