I’m not a particular proponent of Neil deGrass Tyson as either a scientist or a valid authority on sociopolitical issues, but Tyson’s oddly apt in the case of his recent tweet about mass shootings, deaths in general, and the mass market response to such things.
There’s too many people – sheeple really – who go into hysterics over the ever-hyped by the Democrats’ Lamestream Media occurrences like “mass shootings” but are apathetic towards so many other avoidable ways in which people die on daily basis. They just dutifully bleat about what they’re told to bleat about so that the grifters of the Left can profiteer off of this tragedies.
So, kudos to Mr. Tyson for actually applying reason and facts to the situation and putting in a more rational perspective.
It’s quite true that illegal immigrants come to America with far more and far worse than the clothes on their backs. They invade our nation carry with them a plethora of diseases and parasites, putting our people – especially our elderly and our children – at risk.
And again, this is quite true despite our domestic enemies’ and their dutiful intelligentsia’s repeated claims to the contrary. Their refutations are nothing but claims that there has been to-date “no significant” impact upon American society from immigrant-borne diseases and parasites. But by what criteria does one judge significance? And, when has America ever had to deal with an invasion of illegals at the scale that we now face?
Our domestic enemies certainly have no consistent of objective answer to the question of significant impact. Just refer to how the scream about measles outbreaks and vilify the anti-vaxxers as some sort of apocalyptic plague bringers. And this is measles we’re talking about, not something far worse for either the victims or society as a whole.
Measles Mortality Risks:
1:10,000 (0.01%) of measles cases are fatal
3-3.5:10,000 (0.03–0.035%) of measles cases result in seizure
1:20,000 (0.005%) of measles cases result in measles encephalitis
1:80,000 (0.00125%) of cases result in permanent disability
7:1,000 (0.7%) of cases are hospitalized
Yet they utterly ignore America’s most lethal and widespread disease, the common, ordinary, nameless Flu, which has an 18% mortality rate and claims the lives of 36,000 Americans annually, again mostly small children and the elderly.
Yeah, those sorts who will say anything to refute the clear and present dangers and health risks that illegals present to Americans have no measurable basis for their stance on the issue. Then, like with most things, our domestic enemies’ stance on this is based upon Identity Politics and hate, not statistics or other repeatable facts.
With our domestic enemies’ political arm, the Democrats having gained a slim majority in the House, we can expect the coming blight of their ever-more-petty insurrection and war against our President. Be ready, for there is no place to low for their sort to go in their quest to destroy President Trump and the American people and there is no action too base or too vile for them to engage in.
While vermin are vermin and need to dealt with, each variety carries and spreads its own brand of disease. It’s important to recognize this so that one can treat, quarantine, or cull the afflicted and trace the contagion back to the disease-bearing tick so that it can be eradicated.
