Doctor in New York City Is Sick with Ebola

Marc Santora, New York Times, October 24, 2014

A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea became the first person in the city to test positive for the virus Thursday, setting off a search for anyone who might have come into contact with him.

The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center and placed in isolation at the same time as investigators sought to retrace every step he had taken over the past several days.

At least three people he had contact with in recent days have been placed in isolation. {snip}

{snip} Dr. Spencer, 33, had traveled on the A and L subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg, and then took a taxi back to Manhattan.

The next morning, he reported having a fever, raising questions about his health while he was out in public. The authorities have interviewed Dr. Spencer several times and are also looking at information from his credit cards and MetroCard to determine his movements.

{snip}

Dr. Spencer had been working with Doctors Without Borders in Guinea treating Ebola patients, and completed his work on Oct. 12, Dr. Bassett said. He flew out of the country on Oct. 14, traveling via Europe, and arrived in New York on Oct. 17.

Since returning, he had been taking his temperature twice a day, Dr. Bassett said.

He told the authorities that he did not believe the protective gear he wore while working with Ebola patients had been breached but had been monitoring his own health.

{Snip}

Dr. Spencer began to feel sluggish on Tuesday but did not develop a fever until Thursday morning, he told the authorities. At 11 a.m., he found that he had a 100.3-degree temperature and alerted the staff of Doctors Without Borders, according to the official.

{snip}

Dr. Spencer is a fellow of international emergency medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, and an instructor in clinical medicine at Columbia University.

    Another ‘do-gooder’ gets invaded with the ‘do-gooder’ virus.

    Don’t worry – Comrade (Mayor) deBlackio is handling everything. He’ll blame it on ‘racism’ or some other nonsense.

    • The Captain

      Doesn’t that infuriate you? You know that DeBlasio, right now, this very moment, isn’t worried one bit about what ebola could do to his city vis-a-vis a total body count but rather that it could make evil yt’s treat his pet proud nubians racissly.

      What a terrible world we live in.

  • Note that every American domestic case of Ebola has been the result of either white do gooders running around western Africa catching it and bringing it back here, or black Africans who already had it sneaking into the country.

    • JInSanD

      Sneaking in? Obama deserves the blame for not closing the borders.

      Today I heard he’s going to meet with Ebola survivor Nurse Pham and somehow turn it into both a photo op and a teaching moment as he shows us it’s perfectly safe to interact with her. She should be blaming him publicly for almost getting her killed.

      • Sharps Rifle

        She probably voted for the ignoramus, otherwise, she’d tell him where he could shove his photo-op.

        • evilsandmich

          She almost died because of that jackass; she must be delusional on some level.

      • HE2

        Agree. Messcans and other invaders are in no way obliged to “sneak” into this once fair land; heck, they are able to baldly walk over the border.

        Not only are these border breaching criminals ignored by the law, they are greeted warmly and immediately bestowed with the largesse provided by pathological altruists and the sinister marxist in charge.

        • Bryce Armstrong

          They’re invited.

          • HE2

            That is right, Bryce. The White hating mocha messiah even provides transportation.
            He did promise he would “fundamentally transform” the country, and indeed he has.
            We stand on precipice of Third World s***hole status.
            When he is through cramming as much brown, yellow, and black meat as possible into this once fair land, he and his beard wife will leave for their
            multimillion dollar estate on Oahu.
            Surrounded by armed guards, of course.

    Cut him some slack. He left a productive position to go -try- and help some people in a distant hellhole and, despite the best knowledge on prevention, he caught a nearly incurable disease.

    He’s a doctor. This is what doctors do. If you’re religious, pray for him to get well.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Sure, but they should have locked the place down and senr Dr. Malthus in. Heck, he’s already there and doing his best but we keep getting in his way. Not to worry, he’s pretty patient.

        Amen. Nature is a lot smarter than we are.

    • Anna Tree

      Why can’t he help people in his own country?

      • GM (Australia)

        This question is often asked here when we see our Drs rush off to volunteer overseas to assist in “high profile” health scares. Readers of this post may be interested to note that outside of our main cities and coastal fringe decent medical services here are almost non-existent. Very few of our Drs want to live or work in rural or outback localities yet they will literally race off to Africa to help out in these epidemics.

        • John R

          You don’t get any points for helping low income White Americans. It is better to help black Africans. You can brag more to your liberal friends about it.

          • Anna Tree

            I debated someone about this and she told me that those doctors are not discriminatory.
            I told her that on the contrary they are discriminating against sick whites and other people in his town or country,, when they travel thousands of miles to heal sick blacks. I told her about pathological altruism.
            Of course she didn’t answer me when I asked her theoretically (because no doctors do this) if another doctor who discriminates a black to treat a white patient, is a racist.

          • Anna Tree

            But one is excused if black:
            The Liberian president’s own son, Dr. james Adama Sirleaf is a doctor living in the US. He said:

            “The symbolism of me going there and potentially getting Ebola when I have a nine- and a seven-year-old at home isn’t worth it just to appease people. “

          • John R

            Interesting! That one situation sums up the different thought patterns of blacks and Whites more than anything else. Thank you.

        • ShermanTMcCoy

          Suicidal altruism, and a fundamental failure to recognize that going off to help sub-humans does not earn eternal brownie points.

          • Mergatroyd

            Whites are brainwashed into believing that it is immoral, if not pathological, to help other Whties

      • Pathfinder75

        Probably because he thinks he can earn more do-gooder merit badges in Africa than he can here at home in the U.S.

        • Anna Tree

          Exactly, proving once again that blacks are more equal than whites in the pro-diversity/anti-white liberal leftist religion.

        • Who Me?

          Correction: He KNOWS he can.

      • Germanicus

        For the same reason people, especially women, substitute pets for having and raising children–lots of children. Pets provide “all” of the cuddles without the responsibility. Dr. Spencer gets to “surgically” jetset in and out of his pet project, but moving to a small town in Arkansas, West Virginia or the panhandle of Oklahoma would take courageous commitment. No edgy lifestyle happening in those places. No flying back home because one would be home. This would being a real phtsician who also as a scientist immerses himself in the data of the day-to-day of the environment to which his patients are tightly bound–along with their maladies. Maybe seeing ones more like oneself struggling reminds the doctor of some other natural obligation that he is fleeing–I do not know. Brief sleepovers in Africa allows him to satisfy his messianic impulses while providing him with an anti-empathetic firewall, the way a veterinarian can distance himself from the suffering of the animal. There really may be more racism underneath the mental selfies of his “heroic” self than he is comfortable examining. Doctor, might we suggest, heal thyself.

        • Jo

          “substitute pets for having and raising children”

          Studies done by the Massachusetts General Hospital Center of
          Comparative Medicine found the same neurohormones are increased in brains when looking at dogs and children.

          “Similar neurobiologic mechanisms of bonding have been implicated in human-human and owner-dog pairs. Oxytocin, beta-endorphin, prolactin, beta-phenylethylamine, and dopamine are increased in pet owners and their dogs during and after a positive interaction.”

          http://www[DOT]plosone[DOT]org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal%5BDOT%5Dpone.0107205

          Some Whites may view less expensive to raise dogs as substitute children. Also, the reason couples see their dogs as family members even though they have children.

          • Germanicus

            @Jo: Thus the problem. Those mechanisms are designed for bonding to spouse and children, not pets. This is entangled in the anti-natalism that has been imposed on European Whites to rob them of the first foundation if power: power that emerges from the womb and is firmed into a society by the parents within a family. Life is not about the American Dream and other manifestations of individualistic gratification.

            I liked the neurobiological perspective. It makes for a much stronger explanation.

          • Anna Tree

            Maybe not imposed, but Germanicus you are right that anti-natalism has been promoted for decades.

            About pet ownership: Whites love animals, they are the ones who breed them and turned them from worker to companion to family member.

            Long before I became a skeptic about our society’s dogmas and eventually became a race realist, I did once ponder about pets being family members and had a bad feeling about this. Maybe because I was a transition generation: I saw the metamorphose from pets that kill mice and bring the hunted preys etc to family member, something felt wrong to me. Now with the perspective (and wisdom?) I gained in the last years, my thoughts are more precise:

            – it is a child placebo and I think many white children could have been born if pets didn’t become that important in the Western family.
            – it takes away something from the real, human family members. And so is a bit of pathological altruism.
            – it makes animals equals to humans and so this whole thing, sounding innocent but weird back then, seems to me now part of cultural marxism, and is one of its unrecognized victory a PETA-like mentality, that humans should not have more value than animals. It comes along with feminism, gender theory, one race theory and other liberal leftism dogmas of the new albeit religion of nowadays: making all races/sexes equals or in fact only one. I think Jack Donovan is hinting to this too:
            radixjournal com/journal/2014/9/26/thats-ms-potato-head-to-you

            Sorry if I offend some and you dislike my opinion… it’s not a religious thing, I am an atheist and for me it is a rational thing: it is species realism LOL if I may coin the wording: humans are different that animals, there are no specie superior to another, but eons of evolution through chance, adaptation, mutations etc are made some more intelligent, others faster etc (same speech than we races…)

            Bare with me: It is possible that it was one of the first attacks on the West. It was so easy. Back then women were women, men were men, races were separate, homosexuals were in the closet or in their underworld, unwed motherhood still carried stigma etc (just stating, no judgements or melancholy) These elements were strongly anchored and would have been difficult to challenged. But upgrading the status of our beloved pets was welcomed, like a Trojan horse…

            And then, some of them took the place of kids and grand-kids, Jo’s article about the Studies done by the Massachusetts General Hospital Center of Comparative Medicine explaining why: the same neurohormones are increased in brains when looking at dogs and children.
            Adopting non-white kids was next…

          • Germanicus

            Remember how the psychologists in the 70s were telling clients, particularly women, that they needed to establish their “boundaries.” What happened to that? Indeed, a person needs cognitive and emotional boundaries, societies need rules, nations need borders. Boundaries, just like our cell membranes separate self from non-self and inside from outside. We have a word to describe the condition where the inside and the outside of a cell membrane has the same chemical makeup: the word is “dead.” Even within a society, we need conceptual and role boundaries. I do not walk into an operating room and start doing surgery. I am not trained to do so. Most physicians cannot walk into an operating room and do that, they need to be certified to do so. We all live with a multitude of boundaries, definitions, distinctions, discriminations, and categorizations. The relentless erosion of these chalk-lines delimiting the field of play have made the many essential games of our lives impossible. This was the goal intended by the destroyers of the West. I think that you correctly identified how pets are an example of one such tool that was used to erode the fortress of society. Society’s first defenses are its linguistic and ideational walls. These are far more important than aircraft carriers and national security surveillance monitoring–and that is no exaggeration.

        • Mergatroyd

          He wants to be a part of the Manhattan cocktail circuit or rise up the ranks of medicine so he needs “cred” like helping and treating ebola-stricken Africans to garner sympathy and praise from other lefties like himself.
          Helping Whites, no matter where, will not earn one a book deal, accolades, awards, sinecures, trips to the White House or entre into the upper-circles of the Hamptons crowd.

          • Germanicus

            Interesting. It reminds me of a type of “works” fir a secular setting. Please, I have no intention to open up a volley of vitriolic exchanges about faith vs. works. What I do want to say about these folks surgically inserting themselves in and then, likewise, withdraw and go bowling a night later is that it seems like a cynical type of secular work down for secular “salvation” (viz., career advancement and published memory). The problem even moreso with secular salvation schemes is that God us not the recorder, so one has to let the media adequately captures on “altruism.”

          • Germanicus

            Oh my, I just had a horrible thought. Naw… Well, maybe. What do think? Does anyone think that some of these people might be motivated by an underlying pseudo-Christic delusion whereby their desire for attention is so great that they inwardly phantasize about dying and being “resurrected,” as by serum therapy. How dare that first doctor and nurse steal all the love! (Far out, I know…)

          • Anna Tree

            How do they call a doctor who discriminates a black to treat a white patient? A racist.

            How do they call a doctor who discriminates a white to treat a black patient? A do-gooder, a glorious hero! A Saint! A Peace Nobel!

        • mikekingjr

          In fairness to Vets, I never met a good one who was all that distant from an Animal’s suffering. I suppose anybody who deals with suffering creatures must, of necessity become a bit hardened to it, in order not to lose his mind.

          • Germanicus

            Thanks. That is all I meant. One has to paint with broad brushes and bold colors on these small canvasses.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            A charming way of putting it.

        • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

          I would add that any altruism directed towards poor Whites would be solely on his dime; there are no aid organizations, NGOs, government grants and precious few churches who would sponsor doctors in Appalachia. While most of the cash poured into Africa is siphoned off in administration and paying off locals for “protection”, those doctors who go are compensated. On the other hand anyone who ministers to Whites is on their own.

    • IstvanIN

      He should help his own darn people. Romania has a lot of sick kids.

      • Bunky

        Why didn’t he fly to Romania then?

        • IstvanIN

          A White American doctor helping other White people would be racist.

      • Diana Moon Glampers

        I spend quite a bit of time in Romania. I would much prefer that American liberal jackasses stay out. I have enough of them when I’m in the US. White do-gooders who want to go help Africa should go ahead…and STAY there.

        • IstvanIN

          Romania still has a lot of sick orphans and other sick children and I just thought it would be good for doctors to help them, not get involved in the political scene.

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            I know, I just want Eastern Europe to be left alone by those who would spread “American values”.

    • GM (Australia)

      From a purely philosophical point of view you are correct. But, the big question still remains, who will feed Africa’s exploding population if all these tropical African diseases are kept under control?
      As for Ebola it will be interesting to see if it peaks and then dies out naturally.

      • John R

        Liberals don’t think that far ahead. All they think of is helping blacks so they can feel good about themselves and prove they are not “racist.”

        • Pathfinder75

          IOW,they’re afflicted with “pathological altruism”.

      • Mergatroyd

        Uh, how about Africans feeding themselves instead of depending on White countries?

        Their population would fall precipitously to a sustainable level, as it was for tens of thousands of years.

        Feed Africans and 30 years later, the population will have exploded and they will demand entry into YOUR White country, which they are, BTW, yours and the US, Sweden, England, France.

    • Stan D Mute

      And yet there are seriously underserved communities in Appalachia, northern michigan and Wisconsin, etc.

      What this jerk wanted was to live in NYC with his trendy friends, collect a paycheck, and collect major points when he’s invited to socialite functions for doctoring the helpless brown people. In other words..

      It’s ALL about himself. If he truly cared about helping he would have set up in Appalachia and provided $10 office visits for folks without insurance.

      • mikekingjr

        Maybe he WILL learn his lesson and set up such a clinic. AVOID that place like the Plague.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Oh well, if he survives in America, he’ll be on the first flight back out there with some immunity to the disease.
      (Would it be wrong to pray he dies horribly?)

      • mikekingjr

        Yes it would. But I hope he does die horribly.

      • Germanicus

        @Ron Cheaters, hmm, yes, I think to give in to wishing ill on enemies, fools and opponents (as delicious a temptation it is for all of us…daily for me) is not good for one’s soul. However, the consoling news is that no one avoids due punishment for their injustices. I do believe that this doctor behaved in such a willfully and culpably reckless manner, regarding a threat of such enormity, that retribution will be exercised quite naturally. (Just do yourself a favor and not gloat.)

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      I’m religious. And I am praying for this “religious” media whore to expire quickly from the disease he seemed so happily to bring back from Africa to inflict upon his fellow citizens.

    • maxsnafu

      Really. What a swell guy. He cares more about strangers in Guinea than the safety of his own countrymen. A real hero.

    • Germanicus

      Wrong. He is supposedly a specialist “international medicine” (a new, political specialty where infectious disease and epidemiology would be sufficient). His actions, putting a major world city and a nation (ours) at risk should have been criminal were it not for Obola’s malevolent actions that are interferring with rational, epudemiological responses such as quarantine. Dr. Spencer rode public transit, went bowling, and I suppose saw patients. It was such a reckless act that his residency program at the hospital should question his fitness to continue in the program. Perhaps his medical license should be suspended.

    • me

      You. Are. Delusional. You also represent what’s wrong with the world today. And that delusional ‘saint doctor’ should have been treating the poor here, in good ol’ Amerika, since NO ONE can afford Obama Care. Not to mention ‘saint doctor’ endangering everyone with the souvenir of ebola that he brought back with him.
      That ‘doctor’ is lucky he didn’t get hacked up into little pieces for his efforts. Even Jesus doesn’t condone self-immolation on the altar of the gods of ‘diversity’, ‘egalitarianism’, and ‘misplaced altruism’. Liberals have many gods before Him. Wake up and smell the White genocide. Pray for US, instead, or the Boers in South Africa.

      • Mergatroyd

        If it were any other race, the US would send in military force, as they have for genocides in black Africa.

        This needs to be shoved in White American’s faces every single day because this is our future when we are a small, hate minority lorded over by non-White overlords.

Anyone with the apparently colossal hubris that libtard has is beyond learning!

      • mikekingjr

        Try teaching a Doctor to fly an airplane. Since so many of them already know everything, they often choose to correct/ ignore/ contradict their Flight Instructor. Nothing against Doctors as a rule, but a few are too smart and arrogant for their own good.

        • I think I once read that MDs have the worst safety record as private pilots. They’re just too arrogant.

          • mikekingjr

            Don’t know about the worst. That would be challenging to research. Most NTSB reports give very limited info about the PIC. Usually flight hours, recent experience, ratings attained, toxicology info if relevant. Unless the PIC was flying for hire you usually can’t discern what they do for a living.

        • Germanicus

          Interesting. I have always wondered about this. My experience working with lots of physicians is that they are headstrong, as are some businessmen. I have pondered whether it is inborn or the result of training. One thing I have witnessed is what happens in the early years in the clinic. Nurses can be absolutely ruthless. They swarm and they can engage in very vicious forms of pack behavior. (Disclaimer: I love and respect physicians and nurses, I am just being trying to turn a little bit of light on the medical professionals that I have helped educate.) So, to return to my point, young physicians learn to always appear confident as a matter of projection–proactively confident and steadfast in their decisions. Unlike scientists, they do not feel comfortable rolling their eyes up to the ceiling and saying, “On the other hand…” People demand answers from physicians and the answers d#&% well be the right ones! Indeed, I hope that doctors are arriving at at least maximized options as information becomes available regarding a patients condition. And the really good physicians, having done this, have no difficulty making adjustments as a diagnosis or prognosis needs re-thinking. But back to my original thesis, any hesitation witnessed by the nursing staff, or perhaps other doctors, and certainly too some patients, risks making the doctor’s life more difficult. There is a somewhat justifiable fear of losing credibility and status, particularly if the inexperienced doctor is still unsure of him or herself. To the contrary, my doctor is a pilot. He does not seem stubborn. He will modify the course of treatment, but then again, we are in privacy of his examination room and I ask some pretty darn good questions.

          • mikekingjr

            Was only speaking about a brief period in my instructing career and from what a few fellow instructors related to me as regards the topic. Maybe should not have made that comment. You make excellent points about the Doctor hierarchy and their training/ internship/ patient relationships. It’s a far more complicated world than the one in which I live. God Bless them for their devotion to Medicine and their wherewithal to endure the rigors of medical education.

          • Germanicus

            @Mikekingjr. I see no need to apologize. Many people know about “doctor killers.” I think many M.D.s would privately confess, and certainly many nurses would not-so-privately confess, their agreement. By the way, flying is quite complicated–I think you as much admitted that. I see why doctors are attracted to flying because of the life & death mental challenge it presents. It would be interesting to compare the tasks of medical.practice with aeronautics. The latter involves physics with somewhat unpredictable or rapidly changing weather conditions. Medicine is largely, and of course with particular exceptional subtasks, about associative learning. These are different skill sets. If there is a relationship between doctor’s attitudes or propensities and problems with airmanship, possibly what I mentioned might be worthwhile. Then again, it may be nothing more complicated than the fact that, statistically, lots of doctors fly. Now, how about muscians and plane crashes…

    OK, a dr. treating Ebola patients in Africa admits to not feeling well for three days. Check.

    On day three, he rides the L train, the A train, takes an Uber car, goes bowling and out to eat in a restaurant. Check.

    Don’t worry.

    The Fedgov has already told us you can’t get Ebola from sitting next to someone on a bus, DeBlasio told us Ebola is “extremely difficult to get,” and Gov. Cuomo says Dr. Ebola took all necessary precautions, avoided people and that there’s no reason to “be afraid.” Check.

    Obama and the head of the CDC says a travel ban would only “make things worse.”

    ‘Check.

    Look, maybe the Dr. knew what was coming and wanted one last night out to have fun.

    He was bowling for Ebola!!

    I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be the next person to use those bowling shoes or the bowling ball Dr. Ebola used.

  • Pathfinder75

    So,Mayor de Blasio has felt it necessary to try and reassure New Yorkers that “there’s no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed.” I wonder if he would still be as blasé if an Ebola patient was vomiting on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.If that were to actually happen,and the market crashed in a fit of overdue panic,would the writers at the Wall St.’There shall be open borders’ Journal finally wake up to the grave threat posed by mass immigration? Or would they continue in their stubborn refusal to face up to reality?Considering their open borders fanaticism,I believe it would be a safe bet that they would to continue wallowing in reckless delusions.

    This situation has all the makings of one of those old-time Hollywood horror movies:a mutant swarm invading a giant metropolis; vacillating,tight-lipped,big city bureucrats refusing to admit the true breadth of the problem;cynical,overworked parents downplaying the concerns their children have about the infestation plaguing the city;and shadowy,alien figures oozing poisonous toxins from their body,lurking on public transportation,and venturing into every corner of the concrete jungle to spread their deadly infection.

    But in this unfolding horror show,the enemy that must finally be defeated is not some giant lizard stomping it’s way through the city streets,nor is it a fleet of UFOs from outer space,threatening to zap us into oblivion.No,the enemy in this modern tale of terror is something far more insidious,and much more deadlier than any fearsome reptile or roving band of little green men ever could be.This new,frightful enemy comes to steal,kill,and destroy.And he goes by the name:

    AFRICAN!!!

    And this new movie could be given one of the following titles:

    “Melting of a Metropolis”
    “The Metropolis that Oozed Red”
    “The Blob That Bled the Big City”

    Coming soon to a theater (and/or town) near you!

    Ahhhh!

    • “This unfolding crisis has all the makings of one of those old-time Hollywood horror movies”

      Not just the current ebola issues, but this comment describes all of “it” think like, mystery science theatre 3000 quality b sci-fi/horror films, just absolutely terrible silly plots and acting, and yet everyone in the film doesn’t seem to notice how utterly ridiculous, how blatantly wrong it all is.

      The whole world is just floating along, living a B movie plot, seemingly oblivious to the ludicrous nature of everyday occurances. For anyone familiar with mst3k, you think maybe the robots are watching us ? Tom servo flailing his arms as he screams “obamaphoooooone!”

      I dunno, your comment really just “clicked” with me … maybe its all the cheesy schlock I watched growing up. But we really are living through “attack of the ebola zombies from mars!!!”
      Crazy…

      • Pathfinder75

        “maybe the robots are watching us?”

        They are,but they are doing so in the dubious “service” of the NSA,FBI,etc.

        “we really are living through ‘attack of the ebola zombies from mars!!!”

        It’s interesting you mention that, because one of the movies that was going through my mind as I wrote my comment was the 1953 film “Invaders from Mars”,which is available on YouTube:

        I think maybe I’ve watched too much “cheesy schlock” myself.

  • John R

    Ahhh yes, Doctors without Borders. Isn’t it nice? The doctors from the European countries and the USA are all going to Africa to help the Africans. Works out perfectly. Yep, so the Africans will not die of disease and can multiply even faster. Of course, medical care is just soooo cheap in America, that it is fine that we send doctors to Africa. I mean, hey, we can spare plenty of doctors, right? Medical school is really easy and doesn’t cost much, right? Funny, the Chinese don’t seem to be sending anybody over to Africa to help the people there. Well, maybe their economy is growing, but at least we can be happy that we hold the moral high ground, right? (OK. I’ll stop. The sarcasm is just getting out of control.)

    • Samuel Hathaway

      With the Affordable Care Act coming, don’t forget about the acute shortage of doctors. With less competition, doctors might be able to now charge a premium for their services. These doctors playing superhero to Africa need to come home and start serving the poor and sick here, Appalachia for example, like in Harlan County, KY where most of the 30,000 people in the county languish without healthcare. but, they’re white, and don’t deliver a feel-good racial story that blacks do to these doctors.

      • Mergatroyd

        Nah, they’ll import doctors from India, Pakistan and Africa, just as England has done.

      • mikekingjr

        Health care will be available on the black market. A lot of Docs are not going to tolerate ocare and will simply have underground clinics for cash. Not all health care folks are as idiotic as the DWB portrayed in this article.
        Getting major surgery will still require hospitalization, however.

And now, thank you Dr. Suspensor! We’ll really be paying for this treatment you have provided us with for a long time won’t we?

    It’s lovely Obama is sending 3,000 troops to Liberia. Hopefully these troops are affirmative-action reserves, if that is indeed possible.

    This is what happens when we don’t quarantine EVERYONE who has been in and around countries affected with Ebola.

    • Just wait until flu season starts in earnest. Influenza would provide perfect camoflage for a simultaneous Ebola outbreak – until it was too late.

  • Stan D Mute

    Every now and then I find myself on a leftist mainstream “news” site and will start messing with the commenters. During such an adventure today where I advocated for the logical end result of their positions (ie unrestricted travel from Ebolaland), I came to realize that many of these leftists are complete freaking idiots. No, actually that understates it a bit. Let me try again:

    When I was a lad in school, I was that gifted kid who hated authority, never did a lick of homework, fooled around in class, and aced his tests to pass the class. I was surrounded in my “advanced” or “accelerated” classes by boys and girls who worked really hard, did all their homework, and would get B’s or C’s on tests I aced. During class, I’d often be struck by their thickheadedness. The teacher would have to explain things several times and still somebody would raise their hand and ask a question proving they didn’t have a clue what had been presented for the past hour.

    Now the important thing above was that these were advanced or accelerated classes. These were supposedly the *smart* kids. Every single one of them was going on to college and had come from a middle to upper middle class home. Yet they were all of them morons who believed everything their teachers said, questioning nothing because it was so hard just to learn the material in the first place. And now that I think about it, I’d bet that every one of them is a leftist today. They *think* they’re smarter than others because they somehow got into these “advanced” classes. They *think* they’re smart because they got into good colleges. But they’re really just stupid drones who believed whatever their teachers and professors told them to believe.

    And the difference between these *smart* kids and the one who became conservative may just be that the conservatives were (a) really smart or (b) never falsely loaded up with a belief in their self-superiority and thus more able to objectively look at the world and form opinions based on reality.

    • Ron Cheaters

      If you were me, you’d ask questions that would stump the teachers. Which was fun, but didn’t gain me many high marks among those who were decimated. But that’s where I learned my debating skills. the fire I got from my scottish mother.

    “Dr. Spencer, 33, had traveled on the A and L subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg”

    • Valmont

      I think the press maybe got the photos wrong in some of its coverage of this story. The red brick dump identified as the bowling alley is in fact, I believe, the Liberian House of Parliament in Monrovia.

    It’s ever so interesting that when ebola pops up in NYC, suddenly we have brand new QUARANTINE rules that will go into effect. Christie and Cuomo announced jointly that everyone who’s had ebola contact and lands at EWR, JFK, LGA will have a mandatory 21 day quarantine in a government facility. Symptoms or no, they’re quarantined.

    I guess the leftist marxist communist freakos are open borders and welcoming only to the point where it might threaten them. Which gives incredible weight to our oft stated belief around here that these SOB’s should be forced to live among the diversity they foist on the rest of the nation. We would see Operation Wetback brought back faster than you can say “Jim Crow.”

  • Tarczan

    Stupid white do-gooder asshole. There are plenty of diabetic, hypertensive white people with emphysema, COPD and lung disease in Appalachia who need free healthcare. Not glamorous enough?

  • M&S

    Typhoid Mary, meet Ebola Craig.

    Blue/Gold/White. Thirty days in-country, 30 in the bag, 30 at home. Rinse Repeat until Dead or The World is Cured.

    DWB should know better.

    It only takes a single instance of someone ending up infectious for a few hours among THOUSANDS of others who will use public transit to get a Level 4 outbreak as the point at which trace-back containment is impossible because those exposed have in turn exposed the entire population before being diagnosed.

    The sad part is this drip may well have exposed multiple other, depressed immunity or immature immunity, _patients_ to his Pathological Altruism and thus compromised them without their knowing it.

    What does this mean?

    1. Hospitals will become viral crèches spreading the disease.

    2. Nobody will trust medical care because the damn doctors won’t be selective in whom they treat and whom they employ.

    Keep in mind folks, we have FOUR secure site facilities in this country where an Ebola patient can be treated with zero personal or staff cross-exposure to the outside public inside an isolation unit where everyone going into the patient room is wearing PPE and bacticided on exit, the air is on a separate circuit filtration system and everything that has contact with the patient is burned via onsite incinerators.

    Four facilities, for 310 million people.

    If this goes Level 4 inside New York city, will we bring in the Army, lock it down and let it burn itself out?

    I somehow doubt it.

    Obama needs to be impeached for his stupidity with regards to these countries.

    Frieden needs just needs and express trip to prison.

    Make an example of the chief morons in charge of this epidemiological disaster and the country will start to take the problem seriously and force these idiot doctors to act responsibly.

    Maybe.

  • Eddie Lutz

    I guess deadly diseases don’t respect borders either.

  • M&S

    Africans will not treat each other ‘supportively’. Sometimes a relative will agree to take care of someone with the disease and they and their patient are both locked in the hut until it’s over. Amazingly, Africans are smarter about quarantine than we in this.
    When you see the open-air treatment facilities in Africa, you inevitably see a few (well paid) natives without PPE and the docs standing well back in head to toe baggies. Drop the docs and the blacks will not play nurse which means your teleomedicine now comes down to remoted robots hosing down the feces and the vomitus while administering low level drugs to handle the symptoms.
    The way you treat Ebola is the same way we treated Malaria in Florida and later in Panama, digging the canal: Kill the Vector.
    Clear cut the forest, destroy the monkey and other carrier populations, replace these illicit food sources with sterilized Western equivalents, and begin a process (which _must happen_, if Africa is to feed the 4.3 billion it will have, by 2100) similar to what we did with the Buffalo, to open up Africa’s interior to grain and grazing.
    IF we were serious about helping the Africans out, we would change how they live rather than holding their hands as they die in their countless numbers from this lethal plague.
    Africa doesn’t need penny ante medical solutions. They need massive agro based ones.
    If you love elephants and rhinos and wildebeest and cape buffalo and lions and leopards and all the rest, more than you love the humans who share their disease ridden habitats (think about water, how little of it there is and how many have to share the same river sources as a trans-species infection point) then you don’t really want to help African’s out. You want to save /Africa/, as a safari destination.
    And hey, whatever thrills’ya. I just don’t want to see the West having to feed them and then accept their infectious travel to our country.

    • Mergatroyd

      Same thing should have happened with AIDS during the so-called “AIDS epidemic,” attack the vector. Instead we were told we were all at high risk for contracting AIDS, little children, babies, elderly, heterosexual, married Whites, all of us carried the same risk as IV drug users, receptive gays, prison inmates that practice anal sex while incarcerated.

      It was “homophobic” to point out that the vector for AIDS was distinct, narrow and direct.

      Same with ebola.

  • Anna Tree

    Maybe even worse: helping whites over non-whites is racist, while the contrary is glorious indeed…

    • Mergatroyd

      Do it anyway. Let ’em call you a racists for helping other Whites. If more Whites did this, we wouldn’t be in the predicament we’re in, i.e., our homelands turned over to third world savages.

      I base everything I do at this point on “Is it good for the White Race?”

      Every White should do this and stick to it. We don’t need anyone’s permission or approval, let alone from non-Whites, all of whom are ethno- or race-centric and hypocritical.

      I refuse to define myself or my race by what non-Whites say, do or think. I look at them as enemies of the White Race, which is exactly what they consider us, an enemy of their race, and until and unless other Whites start thinking this way, we are doomed.

      Power and safety come in numbers, never forget that, and that is why our enemy seeks to keep us individualized, atomized and put forth the sick message that Whites helping other Whites is a sign of mental illness an psychopathy.

    The guy took cabs, the subway, went bowling, and even walked the Hi-Line while Ebola was percolating inside him. Anyone else here familiar with the Hi-Line? It is perhaps the most crowded walking path in Manhattan, especially on a nice, sunny day. The last time the wife and I traversed its length, we were bumped and jostled so much that we decided to dodge cars and trucks on the street below on our way back, instead.

  • archer

    What an a-hole, him of all people should know that you can’t diagnose the disease until after it manifests itself and then it’s too late, you could already have infected hundreds if not thousands. Anyone returning from an infected area should have to undergo Quarantine for 41 days before being allowed to return home.

    • Anglo

      Yes, but have you heard on the news that these doctors going to the Ebola infected countries and returning here don’t want to spend 21 days in quarantine? I would say to them: so don’t go or stay there! If they are not willing to stay in quarantine, they should not be allowed back into this country.

  • NothingMan00

    If the community organizer invoked amnesty before or after that, he would be ran out of office by the citizens themselves. They wouldn’t wait for impeachment.

    The same is true of an ISIS attack that could be traced as coming across the southern border and blowing up parts of Los Angeles.

    Both are VERY real possibilities, and it is just short of amazing that neither has occurred so far.

  • Anglo

    I understand now that American members of Doctors without Borders are saying if a mandatory quarantine is imposed those returning, they will not serve in Africa. So they can go there for three months living/working under deplorable conditions, but cannot return to the US and be put in quarantine for 21 days? Whatever happened to their spirit of humanity?

      We the payers deserve protection if these doctors have been in West Africa. At least we should be informed and can choose to avoid contact. We do have rights too if one wishes to transfer elsewhere.

  • newscomments70

    Ebola is being deliberately toned down by liberal media. Forbes magazine just promised us that there is NO Ebola danger in New York City. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to catch it through casual contact. Furthermore, it can be cured with a 70% success rate by means of western medicine. Liberals are desperately trying to protect open borders, mass immigration, and amnesty. They scream that to spread Ebola, there has to be an exchange of fluids. Well, guess what…extreme, unprotected promiscuity and rape is an exchange of fluids. Such behavior is rampant in third world communities, at home and abroad. That is why the diesease is spreading exponentially in Africa. Africans have limited to nonexistent healthcare and could never keep up with the disease. How will Obamacare handle the impending Ebola and AIDS epidemics? it won’t. We are facing the possibility of millions of fatalities.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      Ebola is not “easy” to catch, but it is much easier to catch than libs are trying to claim. And we’ve known this since 1995 when the following quote was published in The Lancet.

      “We report transmission of Ebola virus (Zaire strain) to two of three control rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) that did not have direct contact with experimentally inoculated monkeys held in the same room.”

      “The most likely route of infection of the control monkeys was aerosol, oral or conjunctival exposure to virus-laden droplets secreted or excreted from the experimentally inoculated monkeys.”

      Dr. Spencer in the article above said today he can’t explain how he got it, said he was extremely careful at all times and took every precaution possible.

      If health care workers using every protocol possible are contracting ebola that means the rest of us are extremely vulnerable to this viral infection with an approximately 70% death rate.

      • newscomments70

        That’s what I thought. It seems highly unlikely that these medical workers were intimate with their patients.

    • Ella

      It is not uncommon for a White woman to be raped by a Black man, and then, contract an STD or HIV from that assault. Of course, many Black women are also raped by other fellow Blacks as seen in Africa with the high infectious HIV rates.

    My problem is not so much that it is extremely hazardous to those doctors’ health, but that it is hazardous to us all! They really can bring these diseases to millions of whites.

    Beside, it is against evolution and the malthusian mechanisms of nature: there is overpopulation in Africa and whites’ good intentions are creating millions of Africans (actually a billion, the 2050 projection is over two billions) who still won’t be able to feed themselves (so the West will continue to) and will die when the West will collapse…

    I don’t know about thankless and unrewarding, those doctors are really treated like heroes in their communities and churches. And they do this to feel good and be branded as good people.

  • Anna Tree

    And why do they think their own son need to learn to stand on his two feet, but don’t think the dozens (or hundreds or thousands) of foreigners need to? Pathological altruism… Preferring other people’s kids over their own kids, discriminating against their own kin for foreigners.

I do not even know if it is a cause at all, thus, soewhere above I used tbe word “entangled.” In biological and social phenomena effects can reinforce primary causes as positive feedbacks. Secondary consequences can become reinforcements. I do see, where I live and where I wok a troubling predominance of childless women with pet obsessions.

When sine mothethood happens because of death or unprovoked abandonment it is regrettable. Societies can cope with relatively few cases of that by remarriage, ancillary parenting support by wholesome aunts and uncles, etc. And yes, Whites have a problem with individualism and into the pit left open by their minimalization or complete abandonment of religious and patriotic civic affiliations, are poured all manner of frivolous dustractions and self-indulgent junk.

    Don’t have to read Bleak House (I already have, BTW) to know what is going on, especially with the Christian religion which has been infiltrated and steered in a direction of helping anyone but their own, i.e. Whites. No other race or ethnic group has been snookered into believing that helping their own is a sign of mental illness. So Whites throw their lives and treasure down a black hole, a black hole that is thankless and ungrateful, while their own people suffer, especially in places like SA and Zim.

      I agree about throwing the book to this Ebola-infected Dr. who blatantly did nothing to protect the general public’s health in US. They just think of themselves when they become “possibly” contaminated with a deadly disease. Then, they act like it is so hard to contract Ebola from dying African patients; when I return, I can just go anywhere in public with no responsibility.

    Only 5 up votes for the Ebola Song? C’mon man! I must be one unpopular dude.

    Maybe they should change the name of the group to “doctors without common sense”.

    Anything “without borders ” is doomed to suffer this same fate.

    Doctors without borders
    Judeo X’tian churches without borders
    Libertarian loons without borders

    Yep, the best cure for these same types..

    Ebola without borders.

    As for the rest of us, we’re going to have lots. And lots of borders.

    The thing is I was born and raised here before it was a white liberal enclave, back in the day the neighborhood was very patriotic, we had a large concentration of ww2 and Korean, and a few Vietnam veterans that lived here. A few of my neighbors that lived on my block were ww2 veterans.

    In Williamsburg we also have a very fine equestrian statue of George Washington(Continental Army Plaza)…But I’m beating a dead horse here

    The only way Australia can get a form of government truly representative of the people is to become a republic. The only way to become a republic is to make the descendents of the people who founded and built Australia a minority, in turn severing any lingering patriotism, ethnic pride or sentimentality towards the Crown.

    That hurt to read.

  • I wonder what the long-term immunity is for someone who has survived Ebola.

    • I was curious about the same, but given what ebola DOES to you, I imagine even if you survive, you’ve likely lost years off of your life. I think people are forgetting that it tears your entire body apart internally, and I find it very hard to believe that our bodies could come close to repairing all that damage.

    That song is worthy of a Grammy.LoL!

    If you could name five “life forms that spread deadly disease” instead of three,I’d include Africans (obviously) and “unaccompanied minors” from Central America.

    The latest nurse to have been isolated after returning from one of the pestilence counties raised so my h***, they’ve turned her loose. The White House is asking the states who’ve put forth quarantine guidelines, to revoke them. Guess if we can’t be done away with one way, it will try another.

    “Dr. Spencer had been working with Doctors Without Borders in Guinea treating Ebola patients…”
    They should rename it “Ebola Without Borders”.
