Rwanda to Screen American Travelers for Ebola Hysteria

This is pretty awesome.

In response to Ebola hysterics in America, the African nation of Rwanda will now screen passengers from America for the Ebola virus:

On October 19, the Rwandan Ministry of Health introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements. Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition—regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola—by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda. Rwandan authorities continue to deny entry to visitors who traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, or Sierra Leone within the past 22 days.

This is a response to moronic Americans kicking kids out of school because the’re from, or have recently been to, Rwanda or other African nations regardless of whether or not those nations have a single case of ebola.

It would make more sense to screen children with family members who’ve had the flu or children who come from homes with guns.

But this is ‘Merika and making sense if for commies.

Shepard Smith Wins Ebola Coverage Forever

On Wednesday, Shepard Smith stepped up to the plate and by virtue of a calm and authoritative demeanor, took a punishing swing at the panic-stricken response by the mainstream media to the Ebola situation. He provided the facts on the virus as they now stand, free of irresponsible hype and implored everyone watching and listening to ignore the alarmists and react to these latest developments logically and reasonably.

It’s lamentable to have to say that what Shep said and did was extraordinary, but it is. Every news organization and journalist should be delivering the facts on Ebola in this way and yet very few have been. Shep’s own colleagues at Fox News are guilty of some of the most irresponsible and cynical panic-incitement we’ve seen over the past two weeks regarding Ebola. Maybe this is why, when Shep wrapped up this segment, he called out the media specifically, saying about that Ebola alarmism, “It’s not worth ratings and it’s not worth politics and we need to stop it.” We. His own network included.

Credit where credit is due: Bravo Shep.
