Refugee flights from Afghanistan “paused” as a result of measles outbreaks in Virginia and Wisconsin.
A measles outbreak in Virginia and Wisconsin amid refugees from Afghanistan has caused the U.S. State Department to pause the program for further arrivals.
So, let me get this straight: Wuhan China Virus is an existential threat that warrants lockdowns, mask mandates, virus mandates, travel restrictions etc etc etc…but is not so bad that we have to shut down refugee flights from Afghanistan; or even, for that matter, ensure that the refugees are vaccinated before releasing them into the wild.
But a measles outbreak…a disease that’s been with us for centuries, that virtually every person my age or earlier endured as a kid (along with chicken pox, mumps, and myriad other “rite of passage” illnesses that have since been vaccinated almost out of existence) and has never resulted in such extreme measures to quell, shuts the flights right down.
And we’re supposed to pretend like this all makes perfect sense.
Ignore that man behind the curtain.
