Republican Official: Execute Anyone Who Comes In Contact With Ebola, ‘It’s Just Math’
Former South Carolina Republican Party executive director Todd Kincannon, who is now apparently a legal “corresponant” (see above), took to Twitter to propose that anyone with Ebola should be executed. But, you know, humanely.
“People with Ebola in the US need to be humanely put down immediately,” Kincannon tweeted on Saturday.
“The protocol for a positive Ebola test should be immediate humane execution and sanitization of the whole area,” Kincannon tweeted. “That will save lives.”
“Ebola has a strong transmission vector through health care personnel,” another tweet said. “No effective way to contain while treating.”
A Twitter user named Madison Tucker called Kincannon out, pointing out that in some cases the disease is 50 percent fatal and asking if he wanted to execute the 50 percent that would survive.
“How many new infections are there per victim?” Kincannon replied. “If the number is more than 1, euthanize at 50/50. That’s just math.”
Another Twitter user, Grace Lidia Suarez, said that visa restrictions would be more effective.
“I’m fine with that too,” Kincannon replied. “But if somebody gets through and has Ebola, kill it with fire and salt the earth. Compassion is a killer.”
“Not all Ebola victims die,” Another Twitterer said. “You would kill the medical workers we brought back? The cameraman?”
“With zero hesitation,” Kincannon said. “There’s just no other way with Ebola. We need to be napalming villages from the air right now.”
Then he proposed another novel solution for solving the epidemic…
“We should put Wendy Davis’ vagina in charge of the Ebola outbreak,” Kincannon tweeted. “It will kill all of them without mercy and go to Nordstrom’s afterwards.”
See? Because she had an abortion? Good one, Todd. Now go pontificate about how “pro-life” and Christian you are while proposing indiscriminate execution of sick people. You know, like Jesus would have.
