Dr. Drew: Los Angeles Faces Imminent Outbreak of Bubonic Plague

Joel B. Pollack – Breibart July 19, 2019

Dr. Drew Pinsky said Friday that Los Angeles faces an imminent outbreak of bubonic plague because of the growth of the homeless population and the failure of state and local authorities to deal with rodent problems.

Dr. Drew made his comments during a Periscope broadcast by Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who has become a popular political pundit with a daily live audience of thousands of people.

Dr. Drew told Adams that he had predicted the recent typhus outbreak in Los Angeles, which was carried by rats, transferred by fleas to pets, and from pets to humans.

Bubonic plague, Dr. Drew said, like typhus, is endemic to the region, and can spread to humans from rodents in a similar fashion.

Though commonly recognized as the medieval disease responsible for the Black Death in the fourteenth century, which killed one-third of the population of Europe, the last outbreak of bubonic plague in the U.S. was nearly a century ago, from 1924 to 1925 — also in Los Angeles. Only a “heroic effort” by doctors stopped it, Dr. Drew recalled, warning that conditions were perfect for another outbreak of the plague in the near future.

Los Angeles is one of the only cities in the country, Dr. Drew said, that has no rodent control plan. “And if you look at the pictures of Los Angeles, you will see that the homeless encampments are surrounded by dumps. People defecate there, they throw their trash there, and the rats just proliferate there.”

Moreover, he said, homeless people were defecating directly into city drains, which flowed to the Pacific Ocean. “We have the sewage of 60,000 people hitting the ocean every day,” he said.

Though there were adequate financial resources, Dr. Drew said, homelessness would not be solved by building more housing, because the fundamental problems were mental illness and drug addictions, which created an “attachment to this lifestyle” on the streets.

The city had been successful at absorbing hundreds of thousands of “undocumented immigrants,” Dr. Drew observed, which showed that the focus on housing was a “hoax.”

But changes in mental health policy — partly as a result of public reactions to films like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was harshly critical of mental health institutions — had made it much more difficult to commit people to institutional care.

Dr. also said that prison reform initiatives, such as Proposition 47 of 2014– which reduced sentences, but without improvements to rehabilitation — had also played a role by letting more criminals out on the street, some of whom joined the homeless population.

And efforts at relocating the homeless — either to treatment or to prison — ran into lawsuits from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), whom Dr. Drew described as “do-gooders” without any idea about how to solve the underlying problem.

“How many people must die before you change your philosophy?” Dr. Drew asked, rhetorically.

Some, Dr. Drew said, said that the situation in Los Angeles was approaching a national emergency that would require the intervention of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Red Cross, and the National Guard. He said that he himself had not reached that conclusion yet, but that he was “ready to pull that trigger if we start to see the diseases that I think we are going to.”

Recently, President Donald Trump threatened to intervene in California’s growing homelessness crisis, prompting L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Governor Gavin Newsom to push back — without offering any solutions.

“I have a government that is ignoring the basic needs of human civilization,” Dr. Drew said, exasperated.

A recent count of the homeless population revealed that it had risen 12% over the last year, to nearly 60,000 people. Mayor Eric Garcetti, who promised to end homelessness when he first ran for office in 2013, has failed to deal with the problem despite local tax hikes to provide additional revenues. He now faces a recall effort over his failure.

    Part One: The Bubonic Lifestyle
    By Diane Harvey

    The machinery of the Bubonic Lifestyle is cutting down all the branches of the Tree of Life and tearing it up by the roots. We are decorating the ugly, heartless, mass-produced substitutes for our own existence with machine-made junk and techno-tinsel, and calling this living. We have forgotten what living even means, and that it is above all an internal subjective affair. We have substituted the meaninglessness of an entire world of factory products, and glossy exteriors, for the meaningful world of well-crafted objects, life made by hand with love, and a full subjective existence. And since we don t collectively see through the facades to the invisible running sores, staring skulls, and wasted souls accompanying such a devastating epidemic, it continues to be highly infectious.

    Unregulated Consumption, or the Bubonic Lifestyle, is a disease that has become an epidemic of unprecedented proportions. Instead of fulfilling our destiny as a species of reasoning beings, looking ahead to our personal and collective future, we are becoming a species of blind rabid devourers. The majority of us are being reduced these days to a lifetime of feverish consuming, to no end whatsoever. We are becoming a race of eaters, who can never get enough of anything. We fill our bodies by consuming gross oozing poisonous substances, and we call these disease-ridden waste products Food. We fill our emotional natures with brutalizing inanity, vicious ugliness, 10-cent sex, maudlin sentimentality, and blaring racket, and we call these disease-ridden waste products Entertainment. We fill our minds with hypnotic forms of outright outrageous lies, heavy-handed multinational corporate propaganda, fear-induced commentary on obvious power-struggles for dominance, and flashy meaningless bits of techno-fluff, and we call these disease-ridden waste products News. It is very sad to contemplate that most of this society actually relishes these kinds of physical, emotional and mental boils, buboes, and sickbed ravings.

    In such a many-sided attack on human health and sanity, to survive relatively unafflicted is difficult. Egos grow visibly and invisibly obese, in a treadmill of doomed effort to satisfy unregulated appetites of various kinds, while the inner human souls slowly starve to death. A sleek smug glittering crowd of increasingly wealthy revelers, fussily dining in the most absurdly expensive restaurant, and a downtrodden crowd of the increasingly poorer, overweight and under educated slave classes, heaping junk food in a supermarket cart, are just two halves of one empty whole. Both ends of the economic spectrum generally seek as much obliviousness as possible, and generally find it. That the middle classes, traditionally significant carriers of lively and useful germs of reasonably steady progress, are now joining enthusiastically in the overall death-by-willful-stupification, presages eventual disaster.

  2. Bankster Jews are using governments and their political puppets like LA Mayor Garcetti to push immigrant invasions and sanctuary cities to destroy white christian culture.

  3. If there has been no breakout of the rats being a problem in the Mayor’s office, the state house, and the Governors mansion, I would wait to see when it happens there to have concern in other places. For no where in the entire state is there more rats then these places.
