Swine Flu: Commentary by Richard Aberdeen

Here's a couple of videos on the right-wing "nutjob" blaming of Mexicans for the swine flu epidemic. This first video of mine has 800 hits in less than a week and has received more immediate response of any of my videos. The second video by the "Young Turks" takes a similar slant as mine, but it contains less disease mythology information and more quotes from various right-wing radio fanatics for emphasis. If anyone had any doubt previously that Fox News is mainly nothing but a front for the KKK and human slavery and oppression, pretty much all doubt has now been removed regarding the unbridled racist cancer lurking inside the Republican elephant.

Origins of disease is a very tricky thing to trace; blaming citizens of Mexico for the swine flu is equivalent to blaming Native Americans for diseases transmitted to them by Europeans. Since Mexico City and surrounding areas are heavily traveled tourist destinations, this current virus strain could well have been transmitted to a less immune population in Mexico from anywhere in the world, including the United States; any nation on the globe could be the origin of this particular virus strain and, the same type of virus could appear to "originate" in the United States, China or India, carried in from a more immune population, just as it probably was this time in Mexico. Where a virus "breaks out" is probably a good candidate for not being the place of origination, given today's global travel ability.

Can We Blame Mexicans for the Swine Flu?

People with regular exposure to pigs are at increased risk of swine flu. More than 1100 people worldwide have died from swine flu since it emerged in Mexico and the US in April, according to the latest figures from the World.
