We can be glad that the Ebola virus doesn’t spread as fast as stupidity in this country but none-the-less, crazy people are having ill effects on our young children.
Only someone as stupid as Congressman Louie Gohmert would see catching the Ebola viruses as easy as this.
Here’s a true story about a Texas 2nd grader in the Denton, Texas ISD and how closely her comments mimic the absurd views of Texas Congress critter Louie Gohmert.
Gohmert is under the impression that the troops we have sent to Liberia to help contain the Ebola virus there will in fact be infected by this deadly virus and unthinkingly bring it back to be spread across the U.S. Simple-minded people think in simple terms.
It doesn’t dawn on Gohmert that precautions will be taken to ensure that IF any of our troops become infected, they will be properly treated and not simply be shipped back to the states to run willy-nilly around the country and contaminate millions of people. Only an 8-year-old would assume that and likely based on what they had been told by responsible adults. In this case the parents of an 8-year old.
Overheard by another teacher is this conversation between an hispanic 2nd grader and her teacher while she’s standing in the lunch line:
2nd grader: Ms. ______, you know the brown guy?
Teacher: “Brown guy”?
2nd grader: “Yeh, the brown guy. You know. The president.”
Teacher: “You mean Obama”?
2nd grader: “Yeh, Obama”.
teacher: “Okay. What about him”?
2nd grader: “He’s making everyone sick because he’s bringing all of the sand people over here”.
