MICHAEL SAVAGE (HOST): I want to talk for a minute about the epidemic coming in from China and how they must be quarantined immediately, a complete stopping of all flights from China. But of course it's not going to happen because we have a country run by -- I can't even categorize my contempt for the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. Even China itself is imposing a quarantine on passengers from Wuhan, where the deadly virus surfaced.
Now, what do you mean it “surfaced" in Wuhan? It surfaced in a so-called seafood market. Do you know what else they served in Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in the city? Did you know? You know, here's the thing. They sell wolf pups, live living wolf pups. They sell other animals over there, live foxes to be slaughtered and eaten. Crocodiles, wolf puppies, giant salamanders, snakes, rats, peacocks. They sell porcupines, camel meat, 112 different animals live and frozen delivered to your door said the price list for the vendor. Wild game animal husbandry for the masses.
Now what I love about this is that China is held up to the liberal as some sort of great cultural advancement. You say China to them, “Oh, the Chinese are so advanced over the American, oh such a civilized society." Well no and if you study the history of China, it's not such a civilized society. Even right now they have slave labor camps, they harvest organs out of people, especially amongst the Christians, which I'm sure Larry David would find amusing. But no, no it's not that civilized a country, by the way. In fact, when you see that this virus, now threatening to go rogue on the world, has come from an animal of some sort and jumped into the humans, what that brings up in the whole issue of a zoonotic infection. I remember when I was in grad school, a long time ago, it came up. It was a very interesting subject, zoonotic infections, which means an infection that goes from an animal -- a wild animal -- to a man. And one of the key examples that I learned about syphilis. You may think that syphilis originated amongst humans but it didn't. Originally, syphilis is thought to have been endemic amongst llamas in South America.
It gets a little sensitive from here on in. But let's combine the llama with the Spanish conquistadors, the ancestors of alay-cortex [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)], the sacred Spaniards. You see, they were deprived of the companion of human women, so the conquistadors did the next best thing. They fell in love with a llama. And they got the disease from the llamas, that the llamas had. It was a syphilis-like infection. And it was zoonotic, it transferred to the Spanish conquistadors who then when they went back to Spain brought it back to Europe and that's how this zoonotic infection spread throughout Europe. It started with the animals in South America. At least that was the theory when I was studying this a number of years ago. It's probably been revised for political reasons now, because they don't want to embarrass the memory of Spanish conquistadors. It wasn't bad enough that they shot natives out of cannons in Brazil for sport on Sundays. But this might be too much for the libs to even mention that Spaniards are somehow not perfect. Only the Americans are imperfect to the racists.
I guess I thought I'd throw that in, on the seafood market where it began. It's sickening the things they do to animals over there, what they do to bears and dogs. But please don't put China up on some pedestal of great civilization. You know, I've read Chinese poetry going back a thousand years, I know how civilized their art can be, but the actual reality of the Chinese society is not quite as civil as the liberals would have you believe. I know they all bow in Chinese restaurants when they get a glass of water. I know that they put their hands together and bow when they get a napkin. Chinese look at them like they're insane because they are. Liberalism is a mental disorder. You ever see the libs behave at Chinese restaurants? Idiots, they put their hands together and bow if they get a glass of water. “Oh thank you!" They're there as a customer, and they thank the owner 50 times. Do you ever hear libs in a restaurant? “Thank you, thank you, thank you! Let me thank you!" They're glad you're in there to buy their crap they're selling. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
So, on the menu at Chinese virus market: rats, live wolf pups. Isn't that nice? Send that to occasional cortex [Ocasio-Cortez] the next time she bashes America.
And that's the rest of the story on zoonotic infections, right here on the Savage graduate school of political science.
