Farah on the ‘Cloward-Piven-Ebola Strategy’

Apparently Joseph Farah hasn’t gotten the memo that the election already happened so there’s no more reason to spout idiotic paranoia about Ebola anymore. Then again, spouting idiotic paranoia is pretty much the only talent he has, so he’ll keep going as long as his readers cheer him on.

Many are scratching their heads trying to figure out why Barack Obama appears to be doing everything in his power to spread the Ebola virus.

Most people chalk it up to error, bad judgment, misguided thinking and other charitable conclusions. Some go further. They suggest irrationality, ideological and multicultural blindness. Others, like my good friend Michael Savage, attribute the policies to insanity.

Let me suggest there might be another reason for Obama and his band of progressives to put more Americans at risk by closing the borders, restricting air travel, prohibiting quarantines of those exposed to Ebola – except, of course, members of the U.S. military who are being shipped by the thousands into the hot zones in Africa.

If these policies were merely the result of insanity, it would have to be considered criminal insanity, given the risks to the American public…

I fear it is their evil nature. I fear it can best be described by recalling the motivations behind the Cloward-Piven Strategy. I fear we may be experiencing the effects of the Cloward-Piven-Ebola Strategy.

Apparently it has escaped Farah’s notice that there isn’t a single case of Ebola anywhere in the United States. Not one. If Obama was really “doing everything in his power to spread the Ebola virus,” he’s doing a really, really shitty job of it. It’s a lot like the accusation that he’s a socialist, while the stock market and corporate profits have skyrocketed since he’s been in office. If he’s a socialist, he’s the most ineffective socialist in history. But these kinds of paranoid delusions have no relationship with reality whatsoever.

    Ebola is so October 2014.

    The up and coming diseases are flu, dengue, Chikungunya, and Chagas disease.

    1. As EB points out, right now the number of Ebola cases in the USA is…zero, none, nada.

    2. What “we” meaning the world, UN, Obama, and the USA are doing about Ebola is working. The US is Ebola free with only two cases of in country transmission, both by xians at the Texas Presbyterian hospital in Dallas.

    Senegal, Nigeria, and Spain ended their Ebola problem.

    The epidemic is way down in Liberia, sort of stable in Guinea, and Sierra Leone still isn’t looking so good. Mali is so far stomping on their outbreak.

    Joseph Farah shows why xianity fails.

    1. Farah, a fundie xian minister pandering to a fundie xian audience, lies to spread fear and hate for money and power.

    2. The rest of the world is spending billions of dollars and sending thousands of people to Africa to end this outbreak of Ebola. Some of those people have and will get Ebola and some of them will die of it. Meanwhile, governments, corporations, and scientists are spending billions of dollars to come up with vaccines and drugs against Ebola. All with some success.

    Xianity isn’t a source of morality. It’s Weinberg’s rule. Good people will do good. Bad people will do bad. But it takes religion to make good people do bad.

    Fuckface Farah is a grifter and he is just grifting in this post on his website, the whacknutdaily.

    Well EV-D68 fizzled out and ebola still hasn’t taken off – there were two of the right-wing batshit talking points before the election a few weeks ago. But I’m sure that respected epidemiologists like Michael Savage will still find ficticious reason to hate Obama.

    Others, like my good friend Michael Savage …

    Well, there is no need to read any further than that.

    I used to have all the Cloward-Piven-Ebola albums, wish I knew where I put them.

    Funny how you mention this peripheral idiot’s lies about Ebola, but totally failed to mention part-time-libertarian Rand Paul’s far-more-insidious lies. Rand Paul is now a central figure in the US GOP, and he’ll almost surely run for President in 2016 — so why did you ignore his fearmongering, when you can bet it had a much bigger audience, and thus far more likelihood of causing harm?

    Rand Paul falsely pretends to be a “board-certified” opthamologist — after creating his own “board” to certify himself, because he never bothered to get certified by the national board that certifies nearly all other opthamologists in the USA. He then used his fake medical credentials to pretend he was an expert in virology and disease-control, and swore up and down that you could get Ebola at a cocktail party. And unlike Farah, Rand Paul did his demagogic schtick BEFORE election-day, with the intent of influencing the election. Why no response from you then?

    Wait a minute, I thought they wanted us to close the borders?

  • Nemo

    At first I read that as “Coward-Driven Ebola Strategy”, but that would mean we were talking about the policies of Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo and Paul LePage.

    @andrew #8: Yeah, there seems to be a missing “not” there somewhere.

    Obama is running around licking your spoons. That’s as good a reason as any to vote Republican!
