Raw Story:

Former SC GOP director: Execute anyone who comes into contact with Ebola — ‘it’s just math’

The former general counsel and executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party is coming under fire for the novel solutions to the Ebola epidemic he is posting on Twitter.

The vehemently pro-life Todd Kincannon began by arguing that anyone who contracts Ebola should be summarily executed:

That wasn’t all he said.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Todd Kincannon, he is a South Carolina lawyer who gets his jollies by saying rude and offensive stuff on Twtter, then insulting anyone who disagrees or objects. He’s not there to engage in serious discussions, his goal is to stir shit.

There is a word for people who do that: “troll”

Todd Kincannon has a constitutional right to be an asshole. If you are into that kind of stuff (and judging from the number of followers he has some people are) then that is your right. To be entirely honest, I’ve been known to engage in a little trolling myself.

But I was never general counsel and executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party. When Howard Stern says rude and offensive things nobody associates his views with other people. They know he is a shock jock – the radio version of a troll.

If Todd Kincannon wants to be an asshole that is his business, but he should take care not discredit the Republican party while he does it.

    One of the main reasons that I am still registered as a Democrat is so I can say rude and offensive stuff.

    • driguana says:

      This is all quite interesting. The airport where they are setting all this up, Robertsfield I assume, is some miles from Monrovia…about 45 miles or so….perhaps that is a good thing as it keeps some distance for the troops from the large population of Monrovia. But it is very unclear who they will be treating and how all this will be done. Very murky. And right now is still the rainy season in West Africa and it rains very hard in Monrovia…not pleasant and very murky, indeed…throw in snakes and scorpions and lots of mosquitoes and you have a swampy mess. There is some concern in more detailed reports that I have been reading that there is a suggestion that mosquitoes may, in fact, have the potential to further spread Ebola. That will further obfuscate things as malaria shares some of the early symptoms of Ebola. That’s going to make screening for travelers even more difficult.

      • Constance says:

        Well since I read that one case has been documented where a man who was considered recovered from Ebola for 7 weeks managed to infect his sex partner because he still was shedding virus in his semen, I think this is going to be impossible to stop. Anyone in the sex trade or who are customers of sex trades will be spreading it and people engaged in that sort of behavior aren’t going to be honest about their personal contacts when asked. Add to that the at least two hour life of the virus on doorknobs and shopping carts and I don’t see how you stop it.

    sounds like this guy would fit right in with the backtrack bunch. he seems to be their kind of people. The republican party should give him the heve ho

    Actually he started this twitter defense followback group which was to keep from obots ganging up on new accounts to get them shut down. That’s how he got a lot of followers. He started becoming a twitter troll after he accumulated followers.

  4. Somebody says:

    Kincannon doesn’t have to discredit the republican party the media will do that for him. It appears he’s no longer in a leadership role with the SC republican party, but I’m sure any mention of him or his inflammatory statements will be prefaced with republican.

    It’s funny how that works, because you never see some asshole’s comments prefaced with democrat or former democratic whatever. Fred Phelps would be an excellent example of that, Phelps was without a doubt a democrat but he was always labeled “conservative”.

    The democrats are looking for anything to salvage their midterms so it’s possible thanks to Kincannon we may see a Republicans support genocide meme, who knows. The republicans will be forced to denounce crazy shit instead of talking about genuine issues, one of which is ebola and other diseases and our very open borders. Now there will be dog whistles aplenty, he or she said X, but that’s a dog whistle for genocide. If that meme doesn’t catch on stay tuned, I’m sure somewhere, someone with an R after their name will say something stupid about sex or lady parts then the D’s can scream war on women.

        If SNL keeps this up they may become must see t.v. again 🙂 I read a recap of this show in the Daily Mail, funny stuff (even though Sarah Silverman hosted, her Joan Rivers roast of other dead celebrities read very funny), sounds like they have new writers this season.

    Can I say how much I hate Windows 8. This new laptop is a nightmare with 8. I still can’t get my email set up so I have to crank up the old one which is blowing noxious fumes to access my email. Hubby stands by with a fire extinguisher while I look at the spam. I have to call the internet provider first to see why my passwords are screwed up or something else is wrong with it. I had to delete a bunch of games before I could even install a word processing program. I hate Windows 8.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m hanging on to Windows 7 until my laptop gives out. Glad to see they skipped 9 and getting ready to release Windows 10, which is supposed to be more like 7. LOL, I have no clue what I’m talking about 😉

      • Lulu says:

        I’m trying to hang on with 8 until Windows “we made a big fucking mistake” comes out. The laptop is great but the OS is crap. It is so annoying. From what I could tell from the manufacturer and the upgrades I got, Windows 8 was free.

      • 1539days says:

        I gather Windows 10 is Windows 9. They changed it to make it less like Windows 9x (95 and 98). The every other OS curse still stands. Windows 3.11, 98, XP and 7 worked fine. Windows 95, Millennium, Vista and 8 kinda suck.

        • The Klown says:

          The problem for Microsoft is how to sell new software when the old software still works.

          • elliesmom says:

            There is a rather large group of people who want something new just because it’s new. When I was in charge of software installations at a engineering firm, I’d get requests for the latest version of a software package the day Microsoft announced it was releasing one in six months or so. I only upgrade my own operating system when I buy a new computer so I often jump a couple of versions. It’s annoying when I can’t run other software packages I own without going through multiple upgrades to get there. I have a couple that aren’t compatible now.

          • 1539days says:

            I honestly don’t know if I ever touched a system with Vista. There were a few computers at work with Millennium and I think the computer lab had some 95 systems. I went from 98 to XP and then to 7 at home. My computer is almost 3 years old and I think I can make it to Windows 10 with no problem.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        me too I like it better then XP 🙂

    • elliesmom says:

      I guess I must be alone in the world. I rather like Windows 8. I love having a touchscreen on my tiny laptop. Just pointing my finger where I want my cursor to go. The scrolling like a tablet. Once I figured out where things were going when I hit Save, I was a happy camper. I have all of the things I like about my iPad with the functionality of a full operating system. Once Elliesdad told me I was going to hate it, I knew it had been designed for me. lol

      • 1539days says:

        Windows 8 is better with a touchscreen. 8.1 seems to work okay, because you can make it act like WIndows 7.

        • elliesmom says:

          Windows 8 without a touchscreen is like having a TV w/o a remote control. You can still do most things, but you have to work harder at it and some functions are totally missing.

    • driguana says:

      I still wish I had XP…I loved it. Now have 7 and plan to keep that as long as possible…hate all these changes and upgrades…next thing you know we’ll have to upgrade our souls!

      • The Klown says:

        I still use XP – it works fine even though they quit updating it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I had no problems with XP either, or Vista, now 7, but my laptop turnover is 2-3 years, so I’m always at the mercy of what’s installed for free on Toshiba….or Dell. Whatever’s cheapest on Amazon when I crash and burnout. Of course my kids have been bugging me for years to go MAC or something. LOL, I’ve had AOL since 1996, that makes their heads’ explode too 😛

Though I groan at some of the stupid stuff he says, I know there may be millions of germaphobes secretly agreeing with his Ebola strategy. Raw Story has always been in the bag for vile progs, so I see what they’re doing there. And yes, ToddK’s an idiot for attracting attention to himself for the wrong reasons. But that’s what attention whores do. 😉

    A lot of people (including me) get a chuckle out of being an in-your-face dick once in while when it’s warranted. I love pissing off the fainting couch PC police with exaggerated contrarian views as much as anyone. Go ahead, plant that tongue firmly in cheek and make them squeal and dance.

    But when that becomes your entire schtick, when you got NUTHIN else in your brain, and your whole ceaseless deal is flinging taboos in the face of the same old dumb progs on Twitter, every day, you begin to bore me.

    I don’t find Kincannon offensive, I find him BORING. He made me laugh a few times, but it’s the same joke over and over, and inside snickering at those who don’t get that being shocking and making them react and froth IS the joke. Shock can only get you a guffaw from me, not an ongoing interest.

    That said, I don’t take a “lynch the heretic” view of Kincannon. I just got tired of his schtick.

      That pretty much sums up how I feel about most shock jocks and rude comics. That schtick gets old really fast.

    When Los Tres Hermanos first arrived, they were eating kitten chow and mostly sleeping all day, with brief periods of playing and pooping mixed in. Now they play more than they sleep, and they are ALWAYS hungry. I cannot eat ANYTHING without having to fend off all three.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve been following this viral outbreak since I have grandkids near the outbreak areas (NY and CO). What I haven’t learned, are these affected children vaccinated? There’s been a lot of anti-vac Jenny McCarthy Mommies in recent years because of the supposed autism connection so that’s worrisome.

    • 1539days says:

      It’s really sad. It sounds so simplistic to say vote Republican, but the media gives the GOP less of a pass than Democrats when they try to do the same thing. Bush tried to do this immigration crap, too, but the party base stopped him. Unfortunately, shit’s going to keep happening and no one wants to deal with the reasons why.

    OT How do I tell my current dentist that I am switching because they are out of network?

    • DeniseVB says:

      If you mean your insurance company is making you switch, then the truth is fine 😉

      • votermom says:

        Well, it’s not exactly making us switch, just refusing to pay for more than a token amount.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Talk to your dentist’s office manager. If you’re really happy with the practice and want to stay with them and the feeling’s mutual, there are tricks they can do, like write off the difference ins. won’t cover. Your co-pays shouldn’t change. If the Office won’t work with you, then there’s your “out”. Win-Win ?

          • votermom says:

            I’ll try that. Thanks Denise!

          • Somebody says:

            Good luck with Denise’s idea VM. We just switched dentist for the same reason. We don’t have dental coverage with our health insurance, but we can purchase a separate dental policy. We’d been paying out of pocket because the dental insurance didn’t seem worth it, it was basically a wash. Last year we changed our health insurance to a lower cost policy and picked up dental, still saving us $15 a month! We knew we both needed dental work so the insurance would pay for itself and we’d come out ahead.

            Flash forward to this year, we start out with the same dentist who is out of network for this plan but promised to work with us. Sure, work with us to send us to the poor house. He took what the insurance paid, his prices have gone up to boot so he was charging us a little bit more AND pocketing the insurance money so he was making out like a bandit.

            We switched to Aspen dental. I don’t know if they’re in your area, but we have one on just about every corner around here it seems. They’ve sprung up everywhere. We were suspect and waited until we were seen to officially sever ties with our old dentist. Aspen is in network for our insurance btw. They are not high pressure. I’m pretty sure they’re all on salary so they’re pay doesn’t change no matter what kind of work you have done.

            Our old dentist harassed my husband about his wisdom teeth, how they simply HAD to come out. The dentist at Aspen was like why? Your wisdom teeth are fully in, they’re healthy, they fit, why would anyone suggest they needed to come out. Same goes for the crown and root canal I supposedly need. Those were the reasons we opted for getting the insurance, because we knew they’d cost a pretty penny. The Aspen dentist tells me you don’t need a crown and root canal, you have a pocket there on one side where you gum has receded a little bit…..that’s why it’s sensitive. He couldn’t believe I had been told I needed all this work, he said it’s quite obvious what the issue is. He also told me I brush my teeth too aggressively and too often, which is most likely in addition to age, why I have a couple of places where my gums are receding.

            Once we learned all that and we really liked everyone at Aspen, it was easy to sever ties with our old dentist. You may want to try whatever new dentist you’re considering too. When we got home we simply called and canceled our upcoming appointments the next month with the old dentist and told them we’d found a dentist in network for our insurance. They said we can work with you, we said um you already said that and we’re paying more out of pocket with insurance than we did without, they said good luck, bye.

          • 1539days says:

            Are you happy with Aspen Dental? I hear a lot of bad things about them and didn’t go back after the first visit because I was nervous.

            Turns out, though, that most dentists want to farm out things like complicated extractions while Aspen brings a guy in once a week instead of telling you to drive two hours to the referral place.

            The only annoying thing to me is that they want me to pay for everything they say needs to be done up front. I think they are more or less accurate, after paying for another full set of x-rays from the guy who couldn’t actually help me (whom I never actually saw, either).

    Norwegian woman infected with Ebola
    ** Being flown to Norway tonight
    ** Worked for Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone

    No one has explained why, if it’s just contracted via body fluids, that so many health workers are getting infected. People who work with AIDS or HepC patients don’t get infected unles they accidentally stick themselves with infected needles.

      • votermom says:

        • leslie says:

          For some reason, I’ve been thinking about the movie “Andromeda Strain”. They couldn’t figure out why everyone died except for an infant and a homeless guy after a meteor or something crashed into a small town in Arizona or someplace. Anyway, it’s just been running through my mind lately. There is something pretty baffling about this Ebola. I hope we figure out what it is soon.

          • Constance says:

            I don’t think it is going to turn out to be that baffling when we start getting the truth from the government and media. Yeah you catch it from bodily fluids of infected people. But that doesn’t mean just waste products like vomit, pee and poop. It also means sweat and sexual secretions. So it is also sexually transmitted and it lives for a relatively long time on surfaces like railings, doorknobs and grocery carts. Oh, also amusement park rides.

          • leslie says:

            and on public transit hanging grips and poles and doors and disinfectant bottles in drugstores, and ATM touch pads . . . I must’ve washed my hands 25 times already today.

          • Somebody says:

            Thanks for mentioning the amusement park rides Constance, you’re not making me feel any better. I already knew that; I am, after all, a confessed germaphobe. The thing is we have a trip planned to Disney in less than two weeks and we’re going through minor freak outs about it…….so your mentioning it just drives the point home. We’ve already paid for everything……we really need this break, we really do……did I mention we’re staying at a really, really nice resort and it’s already paid for…….and it’s Octoberfest AND food and wine festival?

            We’ve maneuvered Disney with a child in chemo. I know how to roll with my spiked wipes, tons of hand sanitizer, etc. I even have a handheld UV sanitizer, because once again I’m a germaphobe, but what if that isn’t enough? So many foreigners go to WDW, but I keep telling myself people from ebola ravaged countries maybe don’t have the disposable income for such a trip……then I feel better. Then I think, who was on those planes? Were they exposed? Do we know? Were they headed to WDW? Maybe they were coming home from a business trip and they’re about to go on vacation at WDW and maybe they’ll get sick all over one of the parks. What if they were the last one on the ride I’m getting on and they were sweating all over it? What if I miss a spot wiping? What if none of what I have actually kills the germs???

            I know you had no way of knowing the nerve you touched……but trust me I’m battling demons of doubt, so is my husband. We should have opted for a week at the beach resort we like so much, it’s much more relaxing and no crowds this time of year. We didn’t opt for that because our teenager thinks it BORING!

          • votermom says:

            I love WDW! What resort are you staying at?

          • Somebody says:

            We have a condo at Bonnet Creek!! It has really nice pools with lazy rivers, it’s within the disney resort area. The condo is two bedrooms so little somebody has her own space. Our bedroom is at the other end of the condo with a jacuzzi in the master! If we’re lucky we’ll get a room facing the right way so we can watch all the various fireworks from our covered lanai. We’re season pass holders so our tickets have long been paid for. I found a really good deal for this condo, but I had to pay in advance to get that rate.

          • Constance says:

            Sorry Somebody! Last time I went to Disney World I got Norovirus. OMG, that was one vacation I didn’t gain weight on. At least it’s over quickly. The thing is those vacations are so expensive that people load up on Advil and Tylenol and go even if they are pretty much walking dead. But I’m going back for another Disney vacation in January anyway. This time I’m washing my hands every hour and I’m only going in the park every other day so I can rest up in between, there should be lots of good fruit full of vitamins in FL . So even if there is no Ebola you want to be careful of germs so you don’t get flu or noro. I had to go to the ER in Orlando (a very nice facility and they are used to getting insurance payments from all over the place) and they told me you don’t hear about it but they had been getting a steady flow of tourists with Norovirus. Anything you do to prevent flu or Norovirus should be enough to protect you from Ebola.

        • cynic says:

          I’m with you on that one. What’s telling to me is Mika on Morning Joe. She’s seems skeptical and holding back. The fact that a newscrewman and Dr. Nancy were there, makes you wonder if it’s easier to transmit than they’re telling us.

    • swanspirit says:

      I have a sneaking suspicion it can be contracted via large droplet airborne contact .
      Also , there is such a profusion of body fluids with Ebola patients , much more than HIV or HepC

      • 1539days says:

        Universal precautions started because of AIDS, which is actually pretty damn hard to catch. With Ebola, any exposed mucousa and probably skin can absorb the virus. So, you’d have to wear goggles, a mask that can filter out not only air, but blood and what not that gets on it, gloves that cover an impenetrable gown. Then when you get out of all this crap, you’d need to spray it all down with 10% bleach and let it sit for a few minutes to kill the virus. For best results, you should put on and take off these plastic bunny suits in a negative pressure room.

  19. fernschild says:

    The World Health Organization has good information about Ebola and specifically for health care workers regarding removal of personal protective gear. That seems to present an opportunity for infection if there isn’t scrupulous adherence to safety at that point.

    • leslie says:

      Actually, that makes sense. I can see how someone could infect one’s self or someone else if real care isn’t taken when removing PPG.

    • driguana says:

      There is also an increasing fear that Ebola may at some point spread by mosquitoes. WHO also has some information on the spread of hemorrhagic fevers and how they spread. Initial reports when Ebola started in the Gueckegougou region of Guinea stated that it was being spread by bats and bush meat and then, of course, humans. Not much is being said about the potential of it spreading by mosquitoes as Monrovia, and Liberia in general, is a malaria haven and mosquito bites are very common. The early symptoms of malaria might also be confusing to some health care workers. Very little is being said about this. But mosquitoes can transmit blood from one person to another. Scary.

      • votermom says:

        Mosquitos, fleas, bed bugs, flies, lice — they could all be vectors for all we know.

      • DeniseVB says:

        We have West Nile spread by mosquitoes here in coastal VA, so the fogger trucks roll through the neighborhoods all summer, then we wonder why all our polinators (bees and butterflies) are dying out. So we plant Bee and Butterfly gardens to help them, then here comes that g.d. truck again.

        Which reminds me, solar and wind farms are killing migratory and predator (Eagles!) birds by the thousands every year, where are the voices for them ? Not to mention the birdseed industry has govt funding to kill even more birds from destroying their crops!

        Sorry to go off on a rant, but this makes me crazy trying to figure out our dear govt’s priorities. Don’t get me started on the California Smelt. 😀
