We are supposed to die from Ebola if necessary because we’re responsible for slavery and the formation of the country Liberia in, wait for it…wait…wait…in 1926!
David Quammen, a so-called expert on Ebola, doesn’t want air travel from Liberia limited.
He told Anderson Cooper on 360Thursday that:
You can’t isolate neighborhoods, you can’t isolate nations. It doesn’t work. And people talk about, “Well, we shouldn’t allow any flights from Liberia.” I mean, we in America, how dare we turn our backs on Liberia given the fact that this is a country that was founded in the 1820s, 1830s because of American slavery. We have a responsibility to stay connected to them and help them see this through.
He’s the author of Spillover, The Song of the Dodo, & Ebola. No surprises there.
Also not surprising is he knows nothing about Liberia.
Liberia was founded in 1826 after prominent American abolitionists helped thousands of freed African-American slaves colonize a patch of western Africa. The ex-slaves set up slavery for the locals.
After a bloody coup, the Liberian-Americans left and moved back to the United States.
The people now living in Liberia have nothing to do with American slavery and live in a brutal culture.
This was – excuse me – over 200 years ago. Hello!?! This is irrational.
If we all contract Ebola over here, that will really help all those people over there.
Mr. Quammen should get his butt right over to Liberia and help everyone with Ebola. If he gets Ebola, he can consider it atonement for slavery in 1826.
I can’t take this crazy talk any longer. I’m sick of it. All the liberal nutcases need to shut the heck up.
How long are we going to tolerate this utter nonsense?
