Elizabeth Warren wants to Fight Coronavirus by Opening the Borders
She got a lot of flack, deservedly so, for claiming American Indian heritage when she's probably the whitest person in America, but we may have overlooked Elizabeth Warren's intellectual powers. Easy to do, considering one needs an electron microscope to spot them. For on the twenty-seventh day of February in the year twenty twenty, presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren of the Tipi or something, suggested the best way to combat the coronavirus, a virus which comes from a specific area of the world, is by diverting funds away from border security. As in opening the borders.
Behold, pandering monolithic enough to see from space:
Coronavirus poses a serious health, diplomatic, & economic threat, & we must be prepared to confront it head-on. So… https://t.co/tIi7DQsjGE— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1582817307.0
Let's run through the Squaw's tweet one line at a time. One, because I want to, two because it's fun, three because it's necessary.
Yes, coronavirus poses a serious health risk. One which many of us (myself included) wanted to jump ahead of when the first few cases popped up in cities with international flights going to and from China. My solution then was to shut down travel to and from China. But not because I have anything against China, other than the origin of the disease is from China. Geography is such a cruel, racist bitch, am I right? Alas, such rational calls were ignored.
Yes, coronavirus poses a diplomatic threat, since the disease is spread via human contact, including through diplomats who travel two and from different parts of the world. I doubt that's what Warren was referring to, she probably meant the threat diplomatically was one country's leader telling the other country's leader "no more traveling to and from your country because of the Wuhan." See also the point made in the paragraph above.
Yes, coronavirus poses an economic threat due to goods and services being unable to make their way across nations due to productivity slow down (since people are getting sick and DYING) in addition to fear of spreading a disease. A disease which may have been contained had anyone taken it seriously rather than poo-pooing it and telling those of us who didn't poo-poo it that fear of the virus was worse than the virus. I'll touch more on that later, but all this to say, yes, economies are threatened by a virus going viral.
All of that was outlined to draw one main point as we make our way to Warren's second sentence and proposal: This virus could've been contained had it been contained. Geographically. What's a really handy-dandy way to contain something, geographically speaking? Well, rivers, mountain ranges, oceans, moats of fire, and lakes of lava do a pretty bang-up job. Aside from that, if no travel impediment was created by the Sweet Lord, what's another travel impediment that keeps people from flocking to and from where they don't belong?
If you guessed "A big f*cking wall" then congratulations. You is smart.
...and what does Warren want to divert funds from to combat a virus? A big f*cking wall.
Elizabeth Warren 2020: spread stupidity while spreading disease, if it means buying votes from illegals.
