Ken Turnage, a city official in Antioch, Calif. posted the following on his Facebook account:
“the nation and planet would strengthen when this is all settled.”
“this virus is like a human version of a forest fire, a forest fire will burn through and burn off all the dead trees, old trees, fallen brush, and scrub shrub-sucklings that drain the resources of the forest and causing it to be unhealthy.
”We would have significant loss of life, we would lose many elderly, that would reduce burdens in our defunct Social Security System, health care cost (once the wave subsided), make jobs available for others and it would also free up housing in which we are in dire need of,”
On Friday, Turnage was removed from his post by unanimous vote of the Antioch City Council.
