According to this new story over at Fellowship of the Minds which was reporting on a recent interview done by Dr. Drew Pinsky, many of America’s big cities are approaching unlivable conditions, with Dr. Pinsky going so far as to compare the conditions in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles to those in Calcutta. Warning of the potential of life threatening illnesses in the cities turning into very real ‘plague‘ conditions, with Medieval diseases already returning to them, we’ve long been warned to pay very close attention to what is happening in big US cities to get an indication of where America is going.
And if that’s the case, with 52 people shot in Chicago this past weekend while homelessness is spiraling out of control across big Democrat-run cities across the nation, America is heading into grave danger. First, from this new story over at Fellowship of the Minds with much more below including Dr. Pinksy’s video interview with Laura Ingraham as the 1st video at the bottom of this story.
The filthy conditions of Democrat-run U.S. cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are so alarming that even the New York Times‘ opinion columnist has acknowledged that fact in a May 22 op/ed, “America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals”.
On May 23, the Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million — prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer.
A week later, after news that an L.A. police officer had contracted typhoid fever, a rare and life-threatening illness that fewer than 350 Americans contract each year, Dr. Drew repeated his prediction, saying that he believes bubonic plague — a pandemic that killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century – “likely” is already present in Los Angeles.
Last Thursday night, May 30, 2019, on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Dr. Drew said:
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now. We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down.
We have a typhus outbreak last summer; we’ll have a typhus outbreak this summer. I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely already here…. And finally, we have this fecal-group contamination, which is typhoid fever — three cases, one confirmed, probably three. This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World.
This is medieval. Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk. And God forbid…if measles gets in, I just have an image of myself on my knees in the gutter attending to people. This summer is likely to be a very profound problem….
And while Dr. Pinsky tackles the 3rd world diseases that are now proliferating thanks to the conditions in Democrat-run cities, what he doesn’t mention is the potential spread of ebola within such cities and the unimaginable results should an ebola outbreak suddenly take Los Angeles or San Francisco or any other big city by storm and totally unprepared.
As Ray Gano reports in this new story that Steve Quayle had linked to on his website Tuesday morning, ebola has likely already hit Texas with reports of between 9 and 15 people from the Congo now being held at the US border with Mexico possibly infected. Yet as this story over at the Red Bluff Daily News reports, we really shouldn’t be the least bit surprised at what is now happening to the big, left-run US cities as most Democrats in Congress really could care less about their constituents, anyways.
Given news from our “left coast” bastions of progressive governance, “woke” cultural, political wisdom and subsequent societal degeneration, one cannot avoid the shock, even disgust, at the plague of homelessness, drug usage and accompanying filth. Diseases—rightly, proudly thought eradicated since pre-enlightened, backward societies—now show up in supposedly advanced metropolises like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
We notice reports on news media, in articles, recordings and essays, with documentation, anecdotes and studies. Understandably, those with the means are migrating to less degeneration-friendly locales not dominated by the progressive Democratic elite. That ironically dovetails with the bunkering of the well-off in walled (funny, that) enclaves with gated access, even private security.
It’s as if those with political power overlap the economically wealthy among the information industries benefiting from cheap workers. Remarkably, their values oppose development and support protecting open spaces from “sprawl,” defined as the “BANANA” approach (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody— “anybody” being themselves). Have they even heard of the “law of supply and demand”? The dearth of housing development creates unaffordable units of legacy housing.
Then enter the new, enlightened world guided by an aversion to telling anyone or any group “No!” No, you may not set up camp, roll out sleeping bags, or endlessly reside in your RV at a public curb or space. No, you may not use drugs in those same public spaces. No, the addicts and obvious mentally ill will not be tolerated among the otherwise law-abiding and well-behaved homeless. No, the outdoors is not your trash receptacle and toilet.
That all seems unnecessarily harsh. Unnecessary, perhaps, until those being effectively told “anything goes,” “make up your own rules” while living free and easy absent any kind of traditional responsibility, begin to overwhelm the space they occupy. Too harsh unless such overflowing encampments force themselves on the taxpaying, working, upstanding residents of what were once tidy, safe neighborhoods. Too harsh until kids start finding needles and condoms and feel scared to walk to school.
Getting and keeping a job is such an imposition on a lifestyle of sleeping in and declining personal hygiene. Staying alcohol- and drug-free, acting responsibly with good work habits, saving one’s earnings and avoiding the company of druggies, bums and criminals—you must be joking to ask that from people. What a hater you must be. As Deputy Barney Fife would say, “Nip it! Nip it in the bud!” That time is long passed for the above listed cities. Can we say “no”?
In “Woke Los Angeles is the New Typhus Hotbed: Homeless Catastrophe Makes City of Angels Unlivable,” you’ll find videos, photos and links to “Sky High Piles of Trash Making Downtown Los Angeles Unlivable,” and “Rats and other vermin infest LAPD downtown station…”
It starts “Why are Democrat-run cities such hellholes of infectious disease and humanitarian catastrophe?” And don’t even get me going about San Francisco, where the current California Governor Gavin Newsom left behind a legacy of human feces, heroin junkies shooting up on the sidewalks, and progressive NIMBY losers turning away with indifference. California really is a lost cause.” Rest assured, Red Bluff will never join that trend, will it?
