Why Are Many Diseases Back, Decades After Being Wiped Out in the U.S.?
Breitbart News

If you think data about illegal alien crime is hidden from public, just try to find information on the contagious diseases brought across our borders by illegal aliens from nearly 100 countries. If we survey the anecdotal and sporadic official data of the past fifteen years, there is no doubt we are being invaded daily by dangerous diseases

This from Jack Kemp

Remember when "Professor" Ward Churchill was saying that Americans from European origin were giving Native Americans blankets with small pox? How could soldiers load wagons with hand out small pox infected blankets without getting the disease themselves?

As is, the left also mentioned that when Columbus and other explorers came from Spain (and the first whites to come to Hawaii) they brought with them diseases which unintentionally wiped out many of the natives - and that is something white people should feel ashamed of. Well, then are the Central Americans and Syrians coming here supposed to feel ashamed of the diseases they bring here now? Or are only white people supposed to be ashamed of anything that isn't perfect in their environment?

A NOTE FROM TIM:

That is a great point Jack, and it makes the old "two wrongs don't make a right" all the more pertinent. Sadly, few think about such things these days.


Speaking of Old World diseases wiping out Native Americans, Europe is often blamed for syphillis, but it is actually a mutation of a disease endemic to America, so it was the Native Americans who gifted the white man with this particular little present

From Archaeology Magazine :

"Ancient and medieval sources have long been cited as evidence for syphilis in Europe before Columbus, but none of the descriptions by Greek and Roman authors are specific enough to be certain. Returning crusaders brought "Saracen ointment" containing mercury for treating "lepers," an appropriate medication for syphilis but not for leprosy. Thirteenth- and fourteenth-century A.D. references to "venereal leprosy" may also indicate syphilis because leprosy is not sexually transmitted. But the first unambiguous descriptions of syphilis begin around 1500. These may either reflect growing medical knowledge and ability to differentiate syphilis from other diseases or signal its arrival from the New World.

Syphilis is caused by the bacterium Treponema palladium; other bacteria in the same genus cause yaws and bejel, which are transmitted through direct skin-to-skin contact or sharing of drinking vessels. Like syphilis, bejel and yaws cause inflammation of tissue surrounding bone and modify the bones. To establish criteria for distinguishing among the three diseases based on skeletal changes the Rothschilds analyzed a North American collection of skeletons for syphilis cases (diagnosed at autopsy), a collection from Guam predating 1668 for yaws (the only treponemal disease on the island before then), and early historic Near Eastern Bedouin for bejel (bejel is endemic to the region). They were able to identify characteristic bone changes for each disease, for example, modifications to the shin and tibia particular to syphilis, or routine involvement of hand or foot in yaws but not syphilis or bejel.

Using these criteria, they examined 687 skeletons from archaeological sites in the United States and Ecuador ranging in age from 400 to 6,000 years. Populations to the south (New Mexico, Florida, and Ecuador) proved to have syphilis, while those to the north (Ohio, Illinois, and Virginia) had yaws. By contrast, examination of 1,000 Old World skeletons dated to before contact with the New World revealed no cases of syphilis. This suggests that syphilis was first present in the New World and was later brought to the Old World. Furthermore, the Rothschilds found that the earliest yaws cases in the New World collections were at least 6,000 years old, while the first syphilis cases were at least 800 years old and perhaps more than 1,600 years old. This suggests that syphilis may be a New World mutation of yaws, which has a worldwide distribution. The occurrence of the same mutation giving rise to syphilis independently in the New and Old worlds seems unlikely."

Here is the paper by Rothschild. He states:

" Proof of European origins of syphilis would first require proof that any treponemal disease existed in pre-Columbian Europe. Actually, there is little evidence even of periosteal reaction, let alone of its existence as a population phenomenon in pre-twelfth century a.d. Europe [34, 35]. All evidence represents isolated cases for which alternative diagnoses are more likely"

[...]

"Somewhere between 2000 and 1800 years ago, the first identified osseotype of syphilis occurred [49]. The Mogollan Ridge proved to be the dividing line with respect to both the first appearance of syphilis and the climatic change that may have been responsible for the event [93, 94]. Its osseous signature is recognized to have occurred 1500 years ago in New Mexico, 1000 years ago in Wisconsin, 800 years ago in Ecuador, 700 years ago in Florida, and 600 years ago in Michigan and West Virginia [49].

It is clear that syphilis was present in the New World at the time of Columbus' arrival [19, 49]. Especially pertinent is documentation of syphilis in the area where he actually landed, the Dominican Republic [95]. The periosteal reaction characteristic of syphilis has been recognized in 6%–14% of skeletons from the El Soco (800 a.d.), Juan Dolio (1400 a.d.), La Caleta (1200–1300 a.d.), Atajadizo (1200–1300 a.d.), and Cueva Cabrera (1200–1300 a.d.) sites. The average number of bone groups affected ranged from 1.7 to 2.6. Sabre shin remodeling was often so marked as to erase all surface indications of periosteal reaction. The osseous evidence documents the presence of syphilis in the Dominican Republic where Columbus landed. Columbus' crew clearly had the opportunity and means to contract and spread the venereal disease we now call syphilis. "

Also, it should be pointed out that the Administration and their media allies are trying to blame the anti-vaccination movement for these outbreaks. Typical; they have to fault others for the problems they tehmselves have caused and in the process perhaps expand government power over individuals and families.

Sadly, everything, including the lives of our children, are to be burnt offerings on the altar of political correctness these days.

One must ask why, if guns are the source of the problem of violent deaths in America as opposed to the people who use them, then why aren't illegal immigrants (and many legal) looked at in a similar way? These are the source of the diseases, after all, and we should seek people control to stop infectious Third World diseases as surely as liberals seek to restrict guns to stop criminality. Why the differing solutions?
