Crazy Person at CNN: ‘How DARE WE’ Cut Off Flights From Liberia When American Slavery Created the Country!
Wow it sure didn’t take long for some nutty liberal to start crying racism about Ebola. David Quammen says we have a responsibility to allow Ebola-stricken visitors from Liberia into the United States because the country was created by our slave trade.
No really he said this.
From National Review who caught the interview:
“We in America, how dare we turn our backs on Liberia, given the fact that this is a country that was founded in the 1820s, 1830s because of American slavery?” he told Cooper. “We have a responsibility to stay connected with them, and help them see this through.”
Beginning in 1820, thousands of freed African-American slaves colonized a patch of western Africa with the help of prominent American abolitionists. They named that nation ”Liberia,” modeling their flag and political institutions after the United States.
America is always targeted as the greatest sinner in the slave trade, but most critics purposely ignore the role of other countries including non-European nations. And how is it better for us to expose ourselves to a dangerous virus instead of containing it?
Oops, that’s probably racist.
