University of Texas Students Sign Petition to Bring More Ebola Patients to America
By Dean Garrison – BarbWire guest contributor
Sgt. Joe Biggs of Infowars.com recently took a trip to the University of Texas at Austin. He was armed with a petition to bring more Ebola patients to America so that they might receive ‘the finest healthcare.’
Biggs claims that in the course of less than one hour, he talked to approximately 30 students and was able to secure 17 signatures.
As if that weren’t bad enough, there were also students who volunteered to provide housing for these Ebola patients.
Eleven of the 17 also volunteered to take a “symptomatic” Ebola patient into their own home.
Watch this video closely America.
These are your future leaders.
These people vote.
Update, 10/17/14 at 11:30 AM: Ironically enough, it was revealed today that a University of Texas at Austin student is currently under surveillance due to potential Ebola exposure. This student was on the infamous flight to Cleveland along with the 2nd Dallas nurse who has since been diagnosed with Ebola. It seems to be strictly precautionary, but time will tell. Infowars has released this statement via the University:
Dear UT Community,
I wanted to share this information with you as soon as possible. On October 13, a University of Texas at Austin student flew on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143, on which a health care worker who has tested positive for Ebola also was a passenger. The student was not seated in the zone of concern on the plane, is not showing any symptoms, is monitoring body temperature, and is in daily contact with health officials, according to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The student has been fully compliant beyond the CDC recommendations for possible Ebola exposure.
Health officials do not believe there is any health risk to campus at this time. However, in an abundance of caution, the student, who lives in a private residence, is staying home from class and away from campus activities. The university supports this decision and is providing academic and other resources that the student needs.
As president and as the parent of a current UT student, I want you to know that the safety of our students, faculty, and staff always comes first. We are working with city, state, and federal officials to monitor the situation and follow best practices. For specific information about the Ebola Virus please visit the CDC website.
Bill Powers, President
The University of Texas at Austin
I have to wonder how many of these foolish college kids might change their tune after reading the above statement.
