Medieval diseases are spreading in Los Angeles proving Democrat priorities endanger public health.
Typhus, tuberculosis, and other horrid illnesses are spreading quickly through Los Angeles camps and shelters. Medieval diseases are in LA because living conditions there are comparable or even worse than conditions in Medieval Europe. It’s incredible that a civilized society tolerates such conditions.
Yikes! Here’s what a Democratic socialist utopia looks like!

Homelessness has skyrocketed in the state of California. Los Angeles in particular has witnessed a massive increase. Between 2018-2019 the county’s homeless population grew by 16%. The city of Los Angeles experienced a similar phenomenon as its population grew at a slightly slower rate. The thousands of new people calling the streets their home has far surpassed the city’s sanitary capabilities. The sheer amount of people now eating and defecating in the California heat has allowed previously rare diseases to proliferate. It has reached the point where there is a real threat of a bubonic plague outbreak occurring in Los Angeles.
All politicians agree that the best way to combat the threat is by solving the homelessness problem. Some politicians have blamed Los Angeles county’s notoriously high real estate prices as the source of the crisis. While others claim that the homeless population is a direct consequence of California’s failed policies on managing the mentally ill and drug-addicted. There have been many reports such as the one commissioned by the National Coalition for the Homeless that supports the latter group’s claim. The National Coalition for the Homeless study found that 64% of the homeless population is dependent on some inebriating substance. The same report concludes that “[s]ubstance abuse often leads to homelessness.”
Housing and Urban Development conducted a similar study pertaining to homelessness and found that 45% of the homeless population in America possesses some degree of mental illness. More
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” Pinsky told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “We have the three prongs of airborne disease; tuberculosis is exploding, rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down.”
