Once again, college leads the way!
UCLA and Cal State LA have quarantined “hundreds” of students who can’t prove they’ve had a measles vaccine (https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/04/25/measles-quarantine-ucla-cal-state-los-angeles/).
This is in the wake of…wait for it… “one UCLA student has contracted measles.” One! And in Lost Angeles County, with a population of 10.14 million (by the 2016 census–it’s surely more now), there have been… “five confirmed measles cases.”
The horror, the horror!
Meanwhile in New York City, a judge has upheld the city government’s “mandatory” measles vaccine, citing 329 cases of measles in the city, most of them in Brooklyn–where it is estimated that one one-thousandth of a percent of the population has contracted measles.
The sky is falling. We have “a resurgence of measles across the country”! By “resurgence” they mean 555 cases in a country of more than 300 million.
This is another one of those imaginary crises, like Global Warming, that the Left gets all worked up about and uses as an excuse to make things “mandatory.” Carrying on about measles like it was the Black Death! Yes, you could maybe die from measles. You could also die from the bite of a poisonous sea snake that somehow wound up in your bath tub. Both events are highly unlikely.
They want to vaccinate for every known disease, no matter how minor–because, in setting themselves up to be as gods, their ideology does not permit anyone to get sick in a world run by progressive humanists wielding Science like the rod of Moses.
And it really turns ’em on to make all things “mandatory.” And always, always, to grow the power of the government.
