Very Old New Hampshire Legislator Wants to Send the Defectives to Siberia

Welcome to New Hampshire road sign the sign says, "Welcome Bienvenue New Hampshire" with the state saying, "Live Free or Die".

Martin Harty, a 91-year-old first-term — and, we're pretty sure — last-term Republican state representative in New Hampshire, thinks the world is too overpopulated, and that we should solve this by killing off "the mentally ill, the retarded, people with physical disabilities and drug addictions — the defective people society would be better off without." Don't you just love it when adorable old men say crazy things!

Omand says Harty then stated, "I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population."

Omand said Harty appeared to be serious. After Omand responded that his idea sounded like what Adolf Hitler did in World War II, Omand said Harty responded, "Hitler did something right, and I agree with (it)."

Harty's next bill: changing the state motto from "Live Free Or Die" to simply "Die!"
