Having virtually eradicated TB more than half a century ago, the disease is now making a spectacular comeback in Ireland. The most recent outbreak has been in the select, if unfortunately named Crab Lane primary school in Cork. Naturally, this has attracted a huge amount of media attention. All of it totally useless because it resolutely avoids identifying what everyone knows to be the source.
The source of course being the vast population of sub-Saharan (and to a lesser degree South Asian) cultural enrichers that now calls Ireland home.
The journal Social Science & Medicine, in a research paper from 2008 points out that “this increase is largely associated with economic immigrants attracted to Ireland by the ‘Celtic Tiger’ economic boom.” It also reports that “spitting has led to the increase in TB infections as it is prevalent in some communities from Sub-Saharan Africa and the Asian Sub Continent.” In the UK a Health Protection Agency team examined 28,620 TB infections and reported that "many (read 'most') of these patients came from sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian subcontinent."
But as with so many academic papers, an exhaustive academic research exercise comes up with findings that are self-evident to the ordinary man-in-the-street. And the man-in-the-street has spoken. According to a poll in the Irish Independent, 76 percent of people said that all immigrants should be obliged to undergo an examination. This of course was denounced in the usual hysterical terms as ‘racist’.
Now there’s little point in using this development to underline yet again the deleterious effects arising from the mass influx of unsuitable immigrants to Ireland. The point I want to emphasise is that, with not a single exception, the MSM in Ireland has studiously avoided mentioning what is probably the most important consideration- the likeliest source of such infections. I know from friends working at one Irish national daily that even blog comments referring to it are intercepted before possible publication. A doctor friend has told me that ‘all’ the new cases of TB originated with immigrants from at risk regions.
Yet the truth is ruthlessly suppressed.
Now I ask you, could anything be more irresponsible than turning a blind eye to the source of the problem? How irresponsible can it be suggesting, as many have done, the inoculatation, at colossal cost and inconvenience, everyone in Ireland against the disease, when we know that only certain groups carry it?
But that's what’s happening here. Nobody has come out and stated the blindingly obvious. My point being that the PC tyranny has real, practical and damaging effects.
And by the way, the school at the centre of the current crisis is in such demand that only a small fraction of the local residents can get their kids into it. Clearly such impediments don't apply to African cultural enrichers.
And a PPS, it seems bed bugs are back ‘in swarming numbers’, having been eliminated fifty years ago. The cause? ‘more foreign travel’ apparently.
