The Shameful Politicization of Ebola

Former presidential Chief of Staff and close adviser to President Obama, Rahm Emmanuel once said: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste." Thus, implying that any crisis can be used to your political advantage.  So, its no wonder that Ebola is being used (abused) in that very fashion.

Louis Farrakhan, in order to gin up more black hatred of whites, claims that Ebola was weaponized by the CIA to kill blacks while sparing whites.  For sure, Obama's former pastor, Reverend Wright, can't be too far behind on this theory either.  He's already on record claiming that HIV/AIDS was invented by white people to kill off blacks and gays.

MSNBC claims that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is making Ebola worse because the President's nominee for Surgeon General is being blocked by the efforts of that group. In other words:  How can we fight Ebola without the nation's top doctor on the job? 

Then there is the inevitable: Blaming Ebola on Global Warming.  Even, the liberal online magazine 'Salon.com' isn't buying this one.  In their article 'Stop Saying Global Warming Caused Ebola!', they chastised the numerous attempts to link Ebola to climate change.

Finally, there's this from liberal activist and former Special Adviser To President Obama, Van Jones:  Democrats should use Ebola as a campaign weapon against the Republicans; arguing that Ebola shows the need for big government to handle these types of  problems.  This, even though the current system seemed to muff the quick and decisive handling of the Dallas victim.

What next?  Maybe vegans will warn people to not eat meat since that's how Ebola was initially transmitted, although the original transmission of the disease came from bush meats like fruit bats, gorillas, rats, and monkeys and, not domestically raised animals.

All these claims are from the left.  The only way the GOP can politicize Ebola is if things go terribly wrong in the government's handling of the disease.  What are the chances of that happening?  Well, just think about shovel-ready jobs, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the roll out of ObamaCare, ISIS, Syria, what's happening in Iraq and, the endless mishandled problems by this President and his people.
