What The CDC Just Declared A Public Heath Threat Is Absolutely Ridiculous!

My goodness! If this isn’t an example of liberal overreach I really don’t know what is. Seriously, folks, I feel like I am in the middle of a South Park episode. Apparently, officials at the CDC have declared that racism, not COVID-19, is a “serious threat to public health” and they have released a statement discussing how racism is “affecting the health of the entire United States.”

How so? Well, according to noted Biden and coronavirus cabinet official Dr. Rochelle Walensky, there are millions of Americans who are afflicted with this illness, and she felt that “these painful experiences and the impact of COVID-19 are felt more severely in places where there are individuals of color. These are communities that have a disproportionate amount of deaths and a higher than normal amount of cases. This is one place where the impact of the pandemic has been extreme.”

Color? Well, this woman could turn the streets red with her bleeding heart, but I digress.

Of course, the director of this influential U.S. Health Agency had a bit more to say than that. She stated, “This pandemic has illuminated several inequalities that have been in existence for generations and it has revealed something that many in American have already known: one unaddressed epidemic that impacts our public health is racism.”

What a leap. It’s a jump that even Jesse Owens wouldn’t be able to make.

Walensky said that she was going to use COVID-19 funding to “explore different impacts and social determinants on public health outcomes, and implement and propose solutions to address this.”

“This word ‘racism’ is a word that I intentionally used in this narrative,” she continued. “We need to bake this into a cake. It has to be part of what everybody has to be doing.”

Huh?

Other than analyzing what rates of disease are prevalent in different ethnic groups, what in the world does COVID-19 funding have to do with racism?

Here’s a novel idea for some of the bobbleheads at the CDC: when it comes to COVID-19, treat everybody the same, regardless of race. Go back and read that again: treat. everybody. the. same. There is no need to spend a bunch of money on a fancy study. Just address everyone’s health needs regardless of their ethnicity.

This doesn’t have to be difficult. It seriously doesn’t.

Are you as befuddled as I am about these viewpoints declared from the CDC? We would appreciate your comments!
