(View the horrific monologue (if you have limited time to listen to the entire 8 minute clip, start listening at 2:00)

We the undersigned, as older and younger people who are proud that old people are vital, engaged, and capable human beings, demand that Trevor Noah, an otherwise progressive voice for humanity, publically apologize for his monologue that equated Donald Trump’s horrific policies and actions as caused by his old age. 

Mocking, labeling, and dismissing old people with hateful stereotypes has no place on television or anywhere else.  The language and images Noah used are similar to those used against people of color, women and the LGTQ community as a way to discredit their human dignity and the dignity of their struggles. We therefore demand that Trevor Noah make a public retraction of such demeaning images on his show.

Trevor Noah, if you are fortunate to live long enough to become old…and we hope that you do… you will stay as radical, progressive, and forward-thinking as we who are Radical Agers today, regardless of the slander still thrown our way by those who mistakenly think they will be forever young.
