At christwire we are well aware that hippies spread disease. Anyone can smell it on them, from herpes to TB a mangy dread locked peace lover has it all. And this is just what my great city of Atlanta Ga is learning this week.
The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. WGCL reports that a health department spokeswoman said there is a possibility that both Occupy Atlanta protesters and the homeless people in the shelter may still be at risk since tuberculosis is contracted through air contact.
Fulton County Services Director Matthew McKenna in a written statement to CBS Atlanta. had this to say:
“Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB)…One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition. All person(s) identified as positive have begun treatment and are being monitored to ensure that medication is taken as directed.”
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed evicted Occupy Atlanta, Oct. 30 from Woodruff Park, citing that they were no longer allowed to camp out overnight. Then more than 100 protesters moved to the homeless shelter. The homeless shelter is also facing an eviction of its own from the city. The news of the tuberculosis infections could force Occupy Atlanta to move once again.
But it wont be soon enough for many after online reports surfaced claiming that “Occupy Atlanta” had enlisted the help of the religious Terrorist organization, Nation of Islam. Rumors of this unholy hippie terror began from within “Occupy Atlanta”. Midtown Patch, representative Mandie Mitchell is credited directly with providing the information.
