Why Obama Administration Doesn’t Seem Very Concerned About Ebola

To judge by its refusal to close the borders, to prevent more Liberians from flying into the country, and even to refrain from senselessly sending American troops into the Ebola zone, the federal government is not eager to prevent an Ebola epidemic in the USA. Insane as this sounds, our liberal rulers could have both strategic and ideological reasons for their seeming indifference.

From the beginning, Obama’s misbegotten regime has capitalized on crisis. As his former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel put it,

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

That is, every crisis is an opportunity to expand the power and scope of the federal government faster than they normally could without sparking a rebellion.

As for the ideological reason for thinking an epidemic of a horrific disease in the USA might not be the worst thing in the world, consider this remark from writer David Quammen on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360:

“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 no right to defend ourselves from Ebola because many generations ago there was slavery in this country as in many others.

A similar sentiment caused people to vote for an unqualified presidential candidate who clearly never meant this country well and has spent the last 6 years methodically destroying it.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. Either we cure ourselves of the neurotic guilt and self-hatred that the Democrat Party has institutionalized, or we are going down, if not by Ebola then by some other means.

CNN dismisses the possibility of keeping infected Liberians out of the country.
