Just as we thought we were out of the woods with the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control has declared a new public health emergency. Now that Joe Biden is “running” the Executive branch (ha!), the CDC has shifted gears from COVID. According to Biden’s CDC Director, the new public health threat is… racism.
Oh, dear me! How do we protect against that? Should we wear triple masks? Use lots of hand sanitizer? I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking we should all stock up on toilet paper again, just to be on the safe side.
We’re really lucky that we caught this in time. In fact, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky says it was because of the COVID pandemic that her crack team of doctors even discovered the racism virus. She says that COVID “illuminated inequities that have existed for generations and revealed for all of America a known, but often unaddressed, epidemic impacting public health: racism.”
While she didn’t say whether the CDC will be launching Operation Woke Speed to come up with a vaccine for racism, Walensky says that the CDC will begin accelerating its work to “address racism as a fundamental driver of racial and health inequities in the United States.”
But wait a second…
She’s calling racism an “epidemic.” Even though Rochelle Walensky is a Biden appointee, she’s also an epidemiologist. She’s supposed to be a pretty good one. She used to run the Infectious Diseases division at Massachusetts General Hospital. Her Wikipedia page says she’s “an expert on AIDS and HIV.”
How exactly is racism an “epidemic,” you might ask. And that’s a good question. Here’s the literal definition of an epidemic from the CDC’s website:
“Epidemic refers to an increase, often sudden, in the number of cases of a disease above what is normally expected in that population in that area.”
In other words, by calling racism an epidemic, one of the leading epidemiologists in the country – who is supposed to know what she’s doing – is saying that racism is a disease and it’s spreading. Really? Where’s the evidence of that, Dr. Walensky?
We have some more questions:
How is the racism disease spread? Is it from sneezing and coughing? Or touching contaminated surfaces? Or eating Italian food?
What tests is the CDC administering to determine whether someone has caught racism? Is it a blood test? Urinalysis? Chinese booty swab?
By the way, congratulations to Dr. Walensky and her team for identifying the racism virus. We look forward to her winning the Nobel Prize for Medicine on this one. Locating and identifying a new virus is always a step forward for medical science.
Does the CDC have any estimates on how many Americans have contracted racism so far? How many states have infected people turned up in yet?
And has the CDC identified the racism ‘Patient Zero’ yet? Wait, wait! You don’t need to answer that. Dr. Walensky works for the Biden regime, so we already know who will be blamed for every disaster they cause: Big Orange!
And that’s really what this is about. The CDC will no doubt be announcing a new initiative in a few days that medical schools will be required to turn into United Airlines. That airline announced an insane initiative to start training and hiring 50% of new pilots based on non-white skin color, rather than aptitude. Don’t be surprised when the CDC calls on medical schools to do the same. Dr. Walensky will throw medical competence out the window in favor of woke identity politics.
The CDC isn’t supposed to be a partisan organization. They’re supposed to be doctors watching out for public health. It’s right there in their name: Disease Control. Declaring racism to be an epidemic is dangerous and stupid. That’s as insane as hiring someone to build a bridge base on their skin color, rather than their engineering skill.
But that’s the Biden administration in a nutshell. Woke politics is simply the rebranded communism that Joe Biden’s handlers are trying to force down America’s collective throat. Communism, Inc. has never been able to divide Americans by class. So instead, Communism, Inc. is now dividing us up by skin color, thanks to the post-1965 immigration policies of the ruling class. The plan is working beautifully, so far. I hope that you’re not denied medical care in the near future because of your skin color – because that’s exactly where we’re headed under Biden’s handlers.
