The Middle Ages, Coming to a City Near You

In the long process of climbing down from the trees and walking upright man has left behind a lot of myths and superstitions. Witchcraft, animism, pagan lore, have all generally fallen by the wayside. Well, given today’s green movement, at least witchcraft and pagan lore have.

But at least one irrational notion still haunts the human psyche. It is collectivism as expressed by the modern-day left. It is the notion that socialism, a herd ideology based on envy and bitterness, can bring anything but waste to humans. However, in America’s major cities the human waste wrought by the left has taken on quite a literal meaning.

According to public health sources, one being Dr. Drew Pinsky in a recent interview on Fox Radio, there is serious potential this summer for medieval era epidemics to infect cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco because of the amount of human waste strewn across their streets. Not only that but with rats, aside from the ones in office, running rampant and flea and louse-borne diseases already apparent, homeless people tightly congregated in tents and outside quarters could spread such maladies like wildfire amongst themselves and others.

We’re talking typhus, tuberculosis, even plague.

Yes, plague.

And who is in charge of public health in these paradises? Who has run the municipal governments for decades? Whose economic policies have encouraged homelessness in these previously livable cities? The record shows only one political party. The party that breathes in socialism and attendant ruin like oxygen: the Democrats. Their de facto political bacillus is not limited to the left coast. Other U.S. cities have Dem regimes in place and may be well on their way to this squalid state. Some may be near you.

We may take legitimate polemical license sometimes with the Dems. But this is no exaggeration to score points. The Dems have actually and presently brought these cities to such a point they have thrown off centuries of public progress and have been reduced to the kind of places where civilization has given way to approaching chaos, where humans who deserve better are surrounded by virulent infection and squalor.

Such are the wages of leftism. Such is what the Democratic Party offers.
