Ebola Panic Reaches New Highs: Korean Bar Bans "Africans"

Tyler Durden's picture

With race-relations in American at a boiling point, it is perhaps worth a glance at Asia for some context. As Media Equalizer's Brian Maloney reports, one restaurant in South Korea is refusing to serve black people due to fears over Ebola! As he concludes: imagine the uproar were this sign to appear anywhere in the US...

 

 

As Maloney adds,

Given that many American soldiers stationed in Korea are African-American, it’s hard to believe this isn’t generating more attention here at home.

Africa already went 'medieval' as we noted here.

Cordons, common in the medieval era of the Black Death, have not been seen since the border between Poland and Russia was closed in 1918 to stop typhus from spreading west.

 

The phrase cordon sanitaire, or sanitary barrier, appears to date from 1821, when France sent 30,000 troops into the Pyrenees to stop a lethal fever raging in Spain from crossing the border.

 

Plans for the new cordon were announced on Aug. 1 at an emergency meeting in Conakry, Guinea, of the Mano River Union, a regional association of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the three countries hardest hit by Ebola, according to Agence France-Presse. The plan was to isolate a triangular area where the three countries meet, separated only by porous borders, and where 70 percent of the cases known at that time had been found.

 

...

 

“It might work,” said Dr. Martin S. Cetron, the disease center’s chief quarantine expert. “But it has a lot of potential to go poorly if it’s not done with an ethical approach. Just letting the disease burn out and considering that the price of controlling it — we don’t live in that era anymore. And as soon as cases are under control, one should dial back the restrictions.”

How long before this 'segregation' scare comes to the rest of the world?

I did a little research and discovered that Nobel Peace Prize Winner Barack Hussein Obama has killed more civilians in drone strikes this year than have died due to ebola and Missouri police shootings, combined!

He is one deadly mulatto, yet no such signs appear at The 19th Hole in Martha's Vineyard.

Add in the proxy killings performed by groups supported by the Obama administrations (Ukrainian civilian deaths, MH17, ISIS in Syria and Iraq) then the golfer in chief is about ready to recieve another gong for peace.

Liberia's armed forces have reportedly been given orders to shoot people trying to illegally cross the border from neighbouring Sierra Leone, which was closed to stem the spread of Ebola.

Soldiers stationed in Bomi and Grand Cape Mount counties, which border Sierra Leone, were told to "shoot on sight" any person trying to cross the border, said deputy chief of staff, Colonel Eric Dennis, according to local newspaper the Daily Observer.

The order comes as Liberian officials continue the desperate search for 17 Ebola patients who fled an attack on a quarantine centre in the capital, raising fears they could spread the deadly disease. "We have not yet found them," Information Minister Lewis Brown said, adding that "those who looted the place took away mattresses and bedding that were soaked with fluids from the patients."

On Saturday youths wielding clubs and knives raided the medical facility set up in a high school in the dense-populated West Point slum, some shouting "there's no Ebola", echoing wild rumours that the epidemic has been made up by the West to oppress Africans.

Stupid is as stupid does.

We seem to have a fair amount of the same thing running around here lately.

Yell it loud enough and often enough and you must be right.

I've been reading up on blood clotting and proteins to see if any of the alt med stuff I'm familiar with might be of some use.  This makes rocket science look easy.  Darwin's Black Box has a good summary, in layman's terms, but here's the catch.

The reason that topic is in that book, is because it is one of the most complex, interconnected processes in the human body, therefore hard to explain based on "random mutations."

We are well and truly fucked.

Omg that sign is so racist!!

What? It wasn't posted by white people?

Well only white people can be racist so I retract my previous statement and apologize to the oppressed minority who posted the sign.

The Mulatto Messiah has killed far more people of color than any Hemorragic fever. Maybe we should rename him President Ebola.

Not only that, but they will shoot people in the river that they are bathing and filling their canteens in.

Could have avoided all of this by grounding flights and imposing a no fly zone.  Now it's time to reap the whirlwind.  Whatever it becomes.

Alas, he is an asymptomatic carrier of a different virus, yet to be officially recognized: the OBOLA virus.

Symptoms vary from person to person, but include:  Headache, Bloating, GI issues, Sleeplessness, Mood swings.  Often fatal.

Antidote:  Time.  Because all other quick-acting antidotes are highly illegal.

Cure:  Time.

Bearish if in Ferguson.

Look at what the bar has on the top shelf, I'll pass. I've seen more attractive watering holes in Ebolaland.

No. Look at Japan and Korea. The "Not Welcome" sign for third worlders is out. Contrary to Western Europe, where over 1 Million Africans and Middle Easterners are camped out onthe north shore of Africa waiting to get boats across the Medit to Italy and Spain! This according to Italian Military Intelligence. Italy just warned the United Kingdom, that Italy was sick of people arriving in Italy seeking to move to the UK, so they told Cameron that from now on Italy would accept all immigrants from Africa and forward them north with Bus and Train tickets for France where they awit cross channel transport to the UK. Read UK papers, thousands are camped in France trying to hitch rides on boats, trains, planes even rafts, anything that can bring them to England and their promised land. UK benefits inclued a free apartment or house, free health care, a cash payment every month, free education, free legal services and food assistance.

WOnder why 1 Million are camped out waiting to start the journey. Meanwhile, the fuckhead Cameron does nothing!

Watch for similar efforts at cultural enrichment when the YKW depart our destroyed countries and bless the Orient with their particular talents and organizational skills.  A divided and atomized country is much easier to milk.

Apparently offering to take in even more deadwood is perceived to be the winning ticket in European politics. Swedish PM Frederik Reinfelt is campaigning on the promise of taking in an additional 50,000 "refugees" if his party keeps in power this coming fall. Even promised to build an additional 50000 housing units to keep them in. Bullish for swedish housing!

Only one million? There are only 899 million left to go on the continent of Africa waiting for a nice cozy home in Europe or USA.

This is almost sounding like a replay of 1346 - 53.

However, the history books may be incorrect, it may have been ebola, or something similar to it, that caused the carnage, and not the bubonic plague after all.

I believe they have found Yersinia pestis DNA in bones excavated in archeological digs at mass graves dating from the Middle Ages, confirming that the plague that swept through Europe was bubonic.

It was already determined not to be bubonic plague but pneumonic plague instead.

http://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/mar/29/black-death-not-spread-ra...

"The Black Death arrived in Britain from central Asia in the autumn of 1348 and by late spring the following year it had killed six out of every 10 people in London. Such a rate of destruction would kill five million now. By extracting the DNA of the disease bacterium, Yersinia pestis, from the largest teeth in some of the skulls retrieved from the square, the scientists were able to compare the strain of bubonic plague preserved there with that which was recently responsible for killing 60 people in Madagascar. To their surprise, the 14th-century strain, the cause of the most lethal catastrophe in recorded history, was no more virulent than today's disease. The DNA codes were an almost perfect match.

According to scientists working at Public Health England in Porton Down, for any plague to spread at such a pace it must have got into the lungs of victims who were malnourished and then been spread by coughs and sneezes. It was therefore a pneumonic plague rather than a bubonic plague. Infection was spread human to human, rather than by rat fleas that bit a sick person and then bit another victim."

From wiki:

Pneumonic plague, a severe type of lung infection, is one of three main forms of plague, all of which are caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. It is more virulent and rare than bubonic plague. The difference between the versions of plague is simply the location of the infection in the body; the bubonic plague is an infection of the lymphatic system, the pneumonic plague is an infection of the respiratory system, and the septicaemic plague is an infection in the blood stream.

The Mirror describes the woman as British Nigerian owning a property in the Austrian Alps. Talk about there goes the neighborhood, alpine valleys used to be a refuge from the plague.

If there is a quarantine in place in the US, it will certainly be after it's too late.

Yes, it's extremely unlikely you will catch ebola until it's not.
