It may seem like the United States’ myriad of government agencies involved with the handling of the one confirmed (and now fatal) Ebola case in America are trying to stop the American public from panicking. They appear to be trying to convince everyone that there is not a massive epidemic looming. They appear to be warmly reassuring us that there is nothing to fear, and then they started taking people’s temperature as they get off flights just to make us feel a little more sure that they are trying to a little something to guarantee the safety of American citizens.
That’s a bunch of malarky, as Vice President Joe Biden would say if someone put a microphone in front of him for too long. The truth is quite simple. The government absolutely loves something like this. See, the only thing more dangerous than a full-blown Ebola outbreak in the United States is a whole lot of people being deathly afraid that there is one about to happen. Fear is the number one friend of any government in our world, and Ebola has come along at the perfect time. Think about it. So far, what has Ebola allowed President Barack Obama and the United States to do?
- The Ebola outbreak has taken some of the attention off a confusing, unorganized war that no one wants to call a war in Syria and Iraq with an opponent the United States government can’t even decide on a name for.
- It has allowed Congress to approve another three-quarters of a billion buckaroos to go to “the fight on Ebola” whatever that means. That’s almost a billion dollars that no one can explain for one second what it is for, but no one dares question it because it’s for a “good cause.”
- It has allowed President Obama to craftily send over 6,000 American troops to Africa to help stabilize a government that it is in America’s best interest if it stays in power.
- The death of Mr. Duncan, the first verified American Ebola victim, has already become yet another racial issue in America, adding more fuel to a fire that is already raging out of control in Ferguson, Missouri, and if the government has its way, will reach to every street corner in America between now and 2016.
That was just the short list, hitting the high points. That’s a lot of real estate out of a virus that has infected and killed one person that basically fled the outbreak zone to get back to America just so he might have a fighting chance. Not everything that happens is a conspiracy from the beginning. We’re not saying that it was planned for this outbreak (which is definitely quite bad in Africa and claiming thousands of lives) to happen at this time. And we’re not saying that they could have known that a black guy was going to be the first American to come down with Ebola. But, man oh man, they know how to jump on a good situation when they see one, and the political spin-zone is revving out of control presently.
That goes for both sides, by the way. The Republicans are already trying to convince everyone that President Obama should have somehow prevented this one guy from dying of Ebola. As if the President of the United States has anything to do with this sort of thing. The CDC would be the agency to blame for this, not the President. And right now, there really isn’t anything to blame.
The mainstream media does enough fear-mongering of its own, but now the internet is out of control as well. An article is making the rounds through email and social media that the CDC has acknowledged that the Ebola virus is now airborne. Now, if this were true, mind you, it would be catastrophic. The Ebola virus at the present time can only be transmitted by pretty intimate contact with someone that is infected. This means open wounds, blood, semen, you get it. Think HIV. You’re not going to get Ebola because you were on the same bus with someone that has Ebola. Now if you cut your wrist open and have some sort of blood brother mob ritual with someone that has Ebola, you probably need to seek medical attention. Anyway, airborne would be really, really bad, as then the virus would be able to travel at a much more dramatic rate than what we have seen so far. However, there is absolutely zero evidence that we know of so far that the virus is airborne. The CDC definitely did not acknowledge this. This was created by someone and spread (incidentally like a virus) to make a splash and cause more fear.
In case you were wondering, the Ebola virus has never been airborne since it was discovered. For it to become airborne, it would have to mutate. The Ebola virus mutates constantly because of the way it replicates. However, it is extremely unlikely that the virus mutates to become airborne. As a matter of fact, there is no documented evidence of such a thing ever happening.
Ebola is dangerous, and if it goes wild in America, that would be a bad thing. Remember this one thing though as you watch the news’ horror stories about what might happen. The World Health Organization reports that over 600,000 people died from malaria in 2012. Do you remember the mainstream media saying anything about that? Do you remember being scared to leave your home because of malaria? In case you haven’t figured this out from the barrage of articles on this site over the years, take this one thing away: the mainstream media picks and chooses what it wants to go big on and what it prefers to leave under the rug.
