The Holocaust victims who no one remembers

There is one group which the Nazi persecuted and no one raised an eyebrow. They were the first group to be on the receiving end of euthanasia. There were no groups offering them refuge abroad. The persection was virtually 100%. Sadly even today they are the one group who are discriminated against without fear of criticism. Even last year councillor Brian Coleman decried them, describing them as these people in the council chamber. Was he drummed out for attacking their rights? Hardly anyone batted an eyelid.

Sadly, the disabled are still seen as fair game. I suspect they are the one group who you could talk openly about euthanasing, aborting or deny human rights without fear of rebuke.

I have one thing to say.. Until we have zero tolerance for disabled discrimination, in my opinion we have no moral right to think us any better than the NAZI's. That was where their murderous regime started.
