Monkeypox or Monkeybutt: The Latest on the Next Scamdemic

Have you seen the headlines posting “Monkeypox Spreading” in bold type print? They use urgent words to make us feel all panicky inside, as if another pandemic is headed our way.

However, if there’s one thing we can agree on when it comes to covid-19, it’s that we’ve been lied to. We’ve been lied to by the government, by big pharma, by the mainstream media, and by healthcare professionals. And undoing those lies is almost impossible as politization of the issue has created blind followers on both sides. Now, a new virus threatens to take back whatever sanity we’ve restored. But I, for one, promise to be a spreader of the truth.

Here’s what I can tell you. Monkeypox is mainly found in animals such as rodents and primates. Occasionally, it jumps to people, typically in both central and west Africa.

According to PBS, “the illness was first identified by scientists in 1958 when there were two outbreaks of a “pox-like” disease in research monkeys — thus the name monkeypox. The first known human infection was in 1970, in a 9-year-old boy in a remote part of Congo.”

The disease is related to smallpox, only far more mild. It rarely requires hospitalization to recover. So far, that’s not much to worry about. Thus, I decided to ask Google the bigger questions.

How do you know you have monkeypox?

In humans, the symptoms of monkeypox are similar to but milder than the symptoms of smallpox. Monkeypox begins with fever, headache, muscle aches, and exhaustion. The main difference between symptoms of smallpox and monkeypox is that monkeypox causes lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy) while smallpox does not.
Monkeypox virus is transmitted from one person to another by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding. The incubation period of monkeypox is usually from 6 to 13 days but can range from 5 to 21 days.

More importantly, how many confirmed cases are in the US?

Currently there is 1 confirmed monkeypox case in the United States (in Massachusetts), with 4 more probably cases: 2 in Salt Lake City, and 1 each in New York City and Broward County, Florida.

Last year, the CDC reported two cases in the United States. So, a leftist would take this information and exclaim “monkeypox cases doubled this year!” However, New York City has 8.4 million people, and only one case of the virus. There are 334.8 MILLION people in the United States, and there are maybe 5 cases of monkeypox all together. For those of you who aren’t math people, that means, on average, you have one in 67 million chances of having monkeypox.

But don’t worry, we’ve been here before. This is nothing we can’t handle. First of all, we already have actual tried and true vaccines to combat monkeypox. Second, like I said, we’ve been here before!

As CNN chronicled:
In the United States, the last outbreak of monkeypox recorded was in 2003, when 47 confirmed and probable cases were reported in six states: Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. “No instances of monkeypox infection were attributed exclusively to person-to-person contact,” according to CDC.
All of the people infected with monkeypox during that outbreak became ill after having contact with pet prairie dogs, the CDC found. Those pets were housed at an animal vendor’s facilities in Illinois where they may have been infected with the virus. The facilities housed other small mammals imported from Ghana that tested positive for monkeypox virus: two African giant pouched rats, nine dormice and three rope squirrels.
“The prairie dogs got monkeypox from the imported animals and then passed it on to the humans,” Bausch said. “It’s a bit of a misnomer calling it monkeypox. The reservoir for this virus, the natural reservoir in nature is probably certain types of rodents.”
Last week, US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said we don’t need to worry about this virus. But there are three reasons that could change his stance.
      1. Someone puts Dr. Fauci in charge of monkeypox.
      2. Someone puts Kamala Harris in charge of the disease.
      3. Someone puts Joe Biden in a room full of monkeys.

So, the best thing we can do to avoid getting sick is to stay out of the Congo, ignore Dr. Fauci, and keep Joe Biden away from any non-suspecting animals.
