(Natural News) British television personality and former The Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins is well on her way into senior hood, a stage of life that she recently told Radio Times means a person is ripe for termination. Old people, she says, should be put to sleep much like animals at the kennel because they're too much of a drain on society, in her view, suggesting "euthanasia vans" as the solution.
When asked what she would do "if Katie Hopkins ruled the world," the now-divorced shock columnist -- Hopkins' former husband left her, prompting her to apply for The Apprentice -- told Michael Buerk that she would start by stamping out the elderly. There's too many of them and it annoys her, apparently, so the best way to deal with this problem would be to send out crews of senior-killers to deliver euthanasia door-to-door.
"We just have far too many old people," the disgruntled feminist told Buerk. "It's ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people."
Killing the elderly before their time can even be glamorous, Hopkins suggests. It doesn't have to be done in a dimly-lit hospital room with grandma strapped down to a table and forcibly injected. Cutesy little vans filled with euthanasia workers can drive around town and deliver termination pills to seniors' front doors, Hopkins says.
"Euthanasia vans -- just like ice-cream vans -- that would come to your home," is how she described it, in her own words. "It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they'd play. I mean this genuinely. I'm super-keen on euthanasia vans. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it's not necessarily the right thing to do."
This wouldn't be the first time that Hopkins has shown such disdain for the more vulnerable members of society. A recent "tweet" she posted to Twitter openly mocked dementia patients and their propensity towards forgetting things, writing:
"Babe I'm here again, I'm here again, where have you been. Babe I'm back again. I'm back again. Where have you been? Take That Dementia style."
And just like how she views the elderly, Hopkins is of the persuasion that dementia patients are pointlessly taking up space in hospitals and care facilities, and should be put to sleep. The Mirror Online reported on a related Hopkins tweet that stated, "dementia sufferers should not be blocking beds." It proceeded to question the point of their lives.
It's inevitable that Hopkins will someday become one of the many senior citizens in British society that she so despises. And based on the continued regression of health throughout the West, she's also got a pretty good chance of developing dementia at some point in the future.
Both of these factors make Hopkins' distasteful comments rather harrowing for her own survival -- who, but the most gracious among us, would repay such a vile woman with kindness in her old age? Considering Hopkins isn't married and loves to run her mouth off at every chance possible about the merits of euthanasia, it's difficult to see how she'll even make it into her sunset years.
