Published

So, apparently, new reports are coming out that there’s a case of bubonic plague in China. Because, hey, why not? This year’s already brought coronavirus, murder hornets, UFOs, race riots, and other assorted nuttiness.

Why not throw the Black Death into the mix too?

Local health officials in the area reported on Sunday that a suspected case of the illness was discovered in the city of Bayannur, according to reports coming from Xinhua.

As a result of the discovery, a third-level health warning was issued, this is the second-lowest in a four-level system. People are advised to not hunt or eat potentially infected animals. The warning will be in place for the remainder of the year. Citizens are also encouraged to report sick or dead animals.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

The disease, caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria, is commonly spread by flea bites and transferred between rodents such as prairie dogs, mice, and chipmunks. Human-to-human transmission is rare but can occur through cough droplets when a person contracts plague pneumonia.

In the 14th century, the bubonic plague, which earned the name “The Black Death,” ravaged Europe, killing approximately 75 million people and affecting half of the continent’s population. The disease earned its name because of black spots that would form on the skin of those infected.

Before the invention of antibiotics, the death rate of the plague was approximately 66%. However, new drugs have reduced the death rate to 11%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The plague made its way across the ocean to the United States back in the early part of the 20th century. There have been an estimated 1,000 people infected with it between the years of 1900 and 2012. Back in 2017 and 2018 there were six cases of it reported here in our nation.

Curious as to whether or not you might have the plague? Symptoms of the illness include fever, headaches, chills, and swollen lymph nodes.

Can someone please tell me what in the world is up with China? First, the coronavirus. Then there’s the threat of a new swine flu. Now the Black Death? What’s going on over there? Does anybody know?

One thing’s for sure. These folks have got to stop eating dirty, filthy, unclean animals. Please. For the sake of the entire globe.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog.

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
