Many of us have been noticing there’s a not-so-subtle hate-campaign against the elderly going on.
At a recent performance in Dortmund, Leftist hip-hop band K.I.Z. told a cheering crowd of predominantly women:
People are scared of some stupid virus. The truth is, only old white men die!”
“Corona is practically healing the planet”
Now we have a production again by ARD/ZDF German Public Television, Browser Ballet, that tops it all. The satire is titled: “Corona is rescuing the planet”.
In the skit the moderator begins by telling viewers:
We here at Browser Ballet say ‘yes’ to Corona because this virus is practically healing the planet by itself. Interesting is how fair this virus is. It’s ravaging the elderly, but the youth are withstanding this infection almost without effort. That’s only just because it is the generation 65 and over that has run this planet into a wall over the past 50 years.”
Especially responsible, says the moderator, are the overweight and ill adult Americans, who have been recklessly practicing earth-destroying “turbo capitalism”:
Maybe the Corona virus is merely a response to turbo capitalism, and it is working. Air travel has collapsed, production has been cranked back, consumption is declining. There couldn’t be better news for this planet. Air pollution in China, thanks to Corona, has decreased in a very short time. If that continues, then we may experience a new green paradise!”
And isn’t it the problem that there are just too many of us? Less people means less shortages of resources, which means less hunger, which means less war, and that means less causes for refugees. So, probably the Corona virus is simply a nice reflex of nature to tell people who’s the boss here. That’s why: enough with this silly egoism. Corona is here simply because we don’t deserve anything better. “
