Rush Limbaugh said on his show today that he thinks non-conservatives in America are eventually going to blame Ebola on "powerful majorities." He says this because conspiratorial thinking about Ebola is being disseminated by Louis Farrakhan -- an incredibly influential person among non-conservatives who are stuck in a bend in the time-space continuum where it's still 1988:
RUSH: Now, some predictions as to the way this is gonna go because of political correctness....One of my commenters also brought this Farrakhan thing up. (On Twitter, Farrakhan called Ebola and AIDS race targeting bioweapons.) I don't expect this idea to spread very far on my side of the fence. On the other hand, I see that the doomsday-prepper site SHTFplan.com ("When it hits the fan, don't say we didn't warn you") -- where there a lot more gun and ammo ads than you tend to see at, oh, say, Mother Jones or Daily Kos -- the notion of government involvement in Ebola dissemination is already being taken very, very seriously:
If Ebola starts spreading quickly in the United States, and if the death toll rises rapidly, I want you to be prepared for the fact that this will be a disease created by the CIA or other powerful majorities for the purposes of wiping out minorities. That is how it will be -- and not in kookville. This will be mainstream stuff. College professors will tell their students this.
Others will discuss it on cable television, much like they discuss the "art" in a movie on how to assassinate George W. Bush. They will discuss whether or not we need to consider such theories; could they, in fact, be possible. In fact this prediction's already beginning to come true because Calypso Louie, "Minister Farrakhan" of the Nation of Islam, is already saying so.
The CIA created AIDS, too. It's out there now, and Calypso Louie, think of him as a kook, if you will, but he's got followers that believe everything he says. They tell other people who believe what they say and it mushrooms.
Report: "Disaster Teams Were Notified Months Ago They Would Be Activated in October"And, of course, according to this post, everything you think you know about Ebola is wrong!!!1!1!
A public tweet from a large government supplier of emergency response products specializing in "high risk events" says that Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October. The shocking revelation, made on the Goldenstate Fire/EMS Twitter page, suggests that not only did someone know that the Ebola virus would be reaching America, but that they knew exactly when it would happen....
What we are now hearing is just the tip of the iceburg as we enter October. #Ebola virus will cripple EMS and hospitals. The wait is over!— GoldenStateFIRE/EMS (@GoldenStateEMS) September 30, 2014
@FutureMoneyTren DART teams were notified months ago they would be activated in October. Timing seems weird. Source: current DART member.— GoldenStateFIRE/EMS (@GoldenStateEMS) September 30, 2014
... The traditional thinking here is that the virus made its way to the United States simply by one infected individual coming into contact with another, and so on. But, a growing chorus of contrarian researchers suggests another possibility -- the Ebola virus may have been weaponized by a government or rogue terror cell and it has been deployed as a bio weapon....I'm not worried about Farrakhan. I am worried that, if Ebola really does establish a significant footprint in this country, the response to it will be hampered by the refusal of many True Patriots to cooperate with even minimally inconvenient procedures meant to stem the spread of the disease, because FREEDOM! Also because FIRST STEP TO OBAMA SOCIALIST TOTALITARIANISM AND GLOBAL CALIPHATE!
Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show notes that the U.S. Army is intimately involved in Ebola research, adding further fuel to speculation that it has been used to develop new bio weapon systems....
Over the last several years the U.S. government has been actively preparing for a widespread crisis scenario. Whether that crisis is Ebola or something else remains to be seen. But, what we do know is that they have stocked up not only armaments and ammunition, but tens of thousands of Hazmat suits, body bags and what are believed to be millions of disposable FEMA coffins.
Moreover, the President updated several Executive Orders over the last several years authorizing, among other things, forced quarantines and round-ups in the event of a pandemic emergency and the appropriation of private resources like food, water and human labor....
Here's what they're doing in Nigeria and other affected parts of Africa, as reported by Alexis Okeowo in a New York Times op-ed:
Most people I know now carry hand sanitizer around and religiously cleanse several times a day; they know that, in contaminated areas, chlorine can be used to kill the virus; and, before being allowed to enter public buildings, they submit to checks by security guards armed with "temperature guns" that detect a fever. On a recent excursion to a nightclub, a guard put one of these devices to my head and then told me I had "passed"; at the entrance we were required to take hand sanitizer from a dispenser just to be sure.If things get bad in America, or in New York, would I do that? To stay alive? Sure. But I'd worry that a lot of wingnuts would balk. I fear they'd propose mass internment (or execution) of all aliens who aren't ethnic Europeans, plus a solid line of nuclear missiles on the Mexican border, before they'd willingly adapt to the new reality.
