With the man with the first known case of Ebola that developed in the United States having died yesterday and a possible second and third in the works, it looks like the virus has arrived regardless of what we've been told. Those of us who pay attention knew it was only a matter of time before it got here. Unchecked borders and political correctness leave the avenue for its travel wide open.
The President refuses to ban travel to the United States from the Ebola infected countries in West Africa. Many liberals believe it's not only wrong but that it's racist to ban travel from nations of mostly black people even though it's necessary to stop the spread of a deadly virus. Some people are so blinded by skin color that they can't see the truth. The truth is it's about keeping a virus out of this country that can and will kill people of all races and ethnicities, not just whites. But stupid is as stupid says.
We have had hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants cross our Southern border unchecked this year, with 60 to 70 thousand of them being children. Rather than close and reinforce the border, the Obama administration merely rounded up the illegals and shipped them all around the country, putting many of them on the streets with a piece of paper in hand to show up at immigration hearings on their own. Yeah - that worked out well.
Since the onset of this massive, government-sanctioned invasion from Central America, American children all across the nation have begun getting mysterious illnesses of a type not seen here before. Coincidence? You decide. But most of the Central American children who have arrived have never been vaccinated and who knows what they carry? In recent months measles, scarlet fever,whooping cough, tuberculosis, and a polio-like disease that produces paralysis have all been reported in the United States. Yet the borders remain open. How stupid are we?
President Obama somehow feels an "obligation" to help the African people - perhaps because of his own personal roots.
“But let’s keep in mind that as we speak, there are children on the streets dying of this disease, thousands of them," the President said recently. "And so obviously my first job is to make sure that we’re taking care of the American people, but we have a larger role than that. We also have an obligation to make sure that those (African) children and their families are safe as well because ultimately the best thing we can do for our public health is also to extend the kind of empathy, compassion and effort so that folks in those countries as well can be rid of this disease.”
That's all well and good and noble - except why does he have an "obligation" to the African people who are facing the threat of death but has no obligation to the innocent Christians in the Middle East who are being murdered at an even greater rate than Ebola patients? One can only guess at this point but it seems he favors Africa and Islam over all.
Finally, I'm going to re-visit the racist claims that have emerged, particularly since the death of Thomas Duncan yesterday, who happened to be black. Some people are saying that because Mr. Duncan was black he did not receive proper care, including the medication that seems to have saved the lives of the first two Ebola patients, an American doctor and nurse who were flown back from West Africa for treatment, and who happened to be white.
Anyone who has actually paid attention to this Ebola story knows that the medication they received was experimental, was available in a very limited supply, and was used in its entirety treating the first two. According to the President and the CDC, the chances of an outbreak of Ebola in the United States was "minimal." So apparently there was no hurry to develop a new batch of the medication. Was someone supposed to say "Wait - we might have a patient one day who is black and we need to let one of these people die so we can save that person instead"? Really?
Jesse Jackson went to Dallas to see what type of hatred he could spread around concerning Thomas Duncan's grave illness. Initially saying that Duncan was receiving sub-standard care, by the end of the day he was praising the hospital and its staff for the great job they were doing. Personally I wouldn't have given Jackson the time of day but thanks to the patience of the medical staff, Jackson came away convinced that the hospital was doing everything they could do to save the man's life. But that doesn't fit the mindset of those who want to make this a racial issue so Jackson is being ignored on this one. Too bad he's not ignored when the hatred is the other way around.
Nation of Islam leader Louis (Losing My Mind) Farrakhan made a public statement the other day that Ebola was developed by whites to eradicate the black population of the world. Hmmm.... does he not believe that he might be one of the first targets if that were true? And what about the demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri? Could that not easily be quelled if the white devils simply spread a little Ebola around?
Race baiters and hate mongers will use any and every situation to keep the fires burning. Ebola threatens everyone, not just blacks. Perhaps the haters will be quelled if a few more white people contract the disease and die? Geez - what a thing to wish for - racial equality in death rather than the eradication of the disease. America is going downhill quickly.
