The filthy conditions of Democrat-run U.S. cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are so alarming that even the New York Times‘ opinion columnist has acknowledged that fact in a May 22 op/ed, “America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals”.
On May 23, the Calcutta-like conditions of Los Angeles — California’s biggest city and the second largest U.S. city in population, numbering 4 million — prompted famous TV addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky to predict a major infectious disease epidemic this summer.
A week later, after news that an L.A. police officer had contracted typhoid fever, a rare and life-threatening illness that fewer than 350 Americans contract each year, Dr. Drew repeated his prediction, saying that he believes bubonic plague — a pandemic that killed tens of millions of people during the 14th century – “likely” is already present in Los Angeles.
Last Thursday night, May 30, 2019, on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Dr. Drew said:
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now.
We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down. We have a typhus outbreak last summer; we’ll have a typhus outbreak this summer. I’m hearing from experts that bubonic plague is likely already here…. And finally, we have this fecal-group contamination, which is typhoid fever — three cases, one confirmed, probably three.
This is unbelievable! I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval. Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk. And God forbid…if measles gets in, I just have an image of myself on my knees in the gutter attending to people. This summer is likely to be a very profound problem….
[Responding to host Laura Ingraham about the flood of illegals with diseases pouring across the border,] the government is somehow insisting that housing is the problem when in fact we have chronic mental illness, we have addiction, we have people who don’t want to leave the streets. They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them. And that’s the population that’s vulnerable, and is going to get so ill this summer. It scares me for their well-being….
This is reckless negligence [on the part of the city government]. This is disgusting. We have to have a solution to this.”
