Do Liberals Care if Third World Illnesses Infect Americans?

by Jeannie DeAngelis

One of the favorite pastimes of liberalism is to try to inflict guilt on people of European descent for being part of a lineage that they believe, in the words of Bill Ayers at the Dartmouth Debate with Dinesh D'Souza, "murdered" the American Indians by way of contagious disease.

Calling it the "European Invasion," liberals believe that prior to Christopher Columbus' arrival American Indians were virtually disease-free. Never mind that syphilis, which originated in the New World, was brought back to Europe, where spirochete bacterium was not present until after Columbus and his fellow discoverers returned in 1493.

The Columbian theory concludes that invaders from across the sea brought to the Americas the scourge of bubonic and pneumonic plague, chicken pox, cholera, diphtheria, influenza, measles, scarlet fever, smallpox, typhus, tuberculosis, and whooping cough.

Even though Indian tribes were slaughtering each other, lefties argue that their lack of immunity was solely responsible for American Indians dying en masse after exposure to infectious diseases, and are persuaded that 80-90 percent of the Native American population perished after Europeans landed in the New World.

Whether that scenario is truth or fiction, there remains a problem with the argument. Liberals incessantly harp on the fate of unsuspecting American Indians being infected with European maladies, yet that outrage doesn't jibe with their insistence that amnesty be granted to illegal aliens, some of whom carry diseases eradicated long ago from North America.

At the turn of the century, immigrants coming to America through Ellis Island were screened for disease, just as law-abiding persons immigrating via legal channels today require a medical exam as part of the process. Meanwhile, irresponsible politicians on the left, who portray Christopher Columbus as a marauding murderer, choose to ignore the influx of modern-day intruders carrying with them highly-contagious Third World diseases into the US.

Liberal logic approves of government making vaccinations mandatory to protect the American public, but then proposes legalizing anywhere from 11 to 30 million completely unscreened illegal aliens.

The hypocrisy is stunning. Do amnesty advocates care that blood tainted with malaria, a disease eradicated from the USA back in the 1940s, was deemed responsible for outbreaks in California, New Jersey, NYC, and Texas?

How about Asian illegals introducing dengue fever, a viral disease previously unknown in the US, as well as hemorrhagic dengue fever, which is fatal if untreated?

Could it be that amnesty advocates feel that, as part of the retribution for white European ancestors contaminating America's indigenous people, hundreds of years later it's acceptable that innocent children require lifesaving platelet transfusions to cure dengue fever?

The Biblical scourge of leprosy, a "slow-growing bacillus...parasite with a tropism for peripheral nerves, skin, and mucous membranes...upper respiratory tract, anterior chamber of the eye, and the testes," is also within our borders. In 2002, there were only 900 total cases of leprosy in the US. In the next three years there were 9,000 , mostly in states with the largest immigrant populations.

Dr. William Levis, head of the New York Hansen's Disease Clinic, told Columbia News Service, "[Leprosy] is a real phenomenon. It's a public health threat. New York is endemic now, and nobody's noticed."

Do those hostile to 15th century European exploration feel that although it was once rare in America, an increase of reported leprosy cases adds to the multicultural diversity liberals embrace with such affection?...

Actually, it looks like maybe your own denial of personal ape ancestry is causing you some analytical deficits.

Again, it's very simple.

Jesus healed leprosy while on this Earth.
Further, Jesus created mankind with the intellect to develop cures for diseases.
Leftists, however, aid the spread of diseases -- even those formerly eliminated by mankind from modern society.

So...progressive.

So, in your little strange world, conservatives never spread diseases, and science is good, a gift from God, unless the science in question is evolutionary theory.

Tell me more. This is fascinating to me.

The Columbian theory holds that syphilis was a New World disease brought back by Columbus and Martin Alonso Pinzon. Columbus's voyages to the Americas occurred three years before the Naples syphilis outbreak of 1494.[3] This theory is supported by genetic studies of venereal syphilis and related bacteria, which found a disease intermediate between yaws and syphilis in Guyana, South America.[6][7]

They've got it backwards.

It is your disingenuous, unspoken hypothesis.

The author has her facts correct with respect to the spread of syphilis [i.e., Columbian Theory]; she merely misstated "Columbian theory" for "Columbian Exchange" in the following paragraph.

I'll give you that.

I can see how universal healthcare would aid the spread of disease. And how the current broken US healthcare system, with its emphasis on monetizing every aspect of healthcare to the detriment of what is in the patient's best interests, would lead to the eventual cure of every disease.
Not.
Seriously? LMAO at your desperate defense of Obamacare, which is not at all the topic at hand.
Furthermore, healthcare -- whether private or nationalized -- does not force anyone to partake of its services.
