Quote of the day—Benedict Rogers

Many prisoners of conscience—Falun Gong members, Uighur Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists and “underground” Christians—have been subjected to medical testing and had their organs forcibly removed. Those organs have fed an enormous trade in organ transplants.

Well, I guess that is one way to make true the communist claim of better health care than in capitalist countries. You can get your organ transplant in days instead of months or years.

Isn’t communism wonderful!? Aren’t you looking forward to government supplied health care so we can have the same benefits in our country?

Or as Paul put it, “It’s more like Larry Niven’s “organlegger” dystopian plot line.”—Joe]

  1. On the bright side, any organ that’s been “forcibly removed” (presumably while the “donor” is still alive) will be nice and fresh.

    • I’m just curious how soon the embarrassment from that comment set in after the 5 minute edit window expired. Was it immediate shame that you felt or did it set in after the haze from all the keyboard cleaner wore off?

  2. Sorry if my sense of humor offended you. The practice is barbaric and I certainly don’t condone it. I also don’t condone eating the Irish.
    Have fun in your safe space.

  3. Don’t know if anyone will read this, but here goes:
    I’m probably the only commenter here who has arrested and convicted a genocidal mass murderer. During my investigation, I interviewed witnesses in two countries, and their statements still disturb my sleep fifteen years later. (Quick example: A witness was being chased by the murderer, and only escaped because the murderer stopped to shoot a baby.)
    So whenever I read about a new barbarity, it dredges up unwanted memories that I can only try to dispel through sick humor. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
    I remember reading somewhere about judging and being judged. Or maybe not.
