Bummer. Far Left Journalist Joins #Occupy Camp – Picks Up Scabies

Another day… Another #occupy scabies outbreak.

Far left journalist Yasha Levine spent some time with the #Occupy movement a few months back. He left the movement but the movement never left him.
Media Bistro reported:

eXiled editor Yasha Levine still has a host of legal woes hanging over his head from being arrested while covering last November’s LAPD crackdown of OccupyLA. Turns out, those are the least of his worries at the moment. During his two-day stay in Los Angeles Metro Jail, Levine says he contracted a wicked case of scabies.

Until a few days ago, I thought my scabies was just a gnarly poison oak rash that I had picked up in the Santa Monica mountains after losing the trail and having to cut through the overgrown backyards of multimillion dollar mansions. For weeks the rash kept getting worse and worse, and I finally went to a doctor to get some relief. But it turned out that poison oak was the least of my worries.

“You have scabies,” said the doc, sucking in his breath through his teeth and shaking his head. It took him no more than 30 seconds to diagnose my condition. “The track marks are a dead giveaway,” he said, and pointed out a couple of elongated welts about a half-inch long creeping up the side of my right ring finger. These “tracks marks” were actually burrows made by mother-parasites as they tunneled right below the surface of my skin and laid eggs in the process. I had dozens of similar track marks of all shapes and sizes on both hands. As I stared at my hands in disgust, the doc moved to the sink and violently scrubbed his hands with medical soap. Our contact was minimal, but he wasn’t taking any chances…

[H]is hesitation instantly melted away when I mentioned that a few months earlier I had spent a couple of days in jail. ”Yeah, that’s where you picked it up,” he said, repeating it twice.

Yuck.

    Did the jailers do that to his head, or did he?

    Also: that may be the most symmetrical head I’ve ever seen.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Contrast it to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

    I’m sure he’s got more than scabies… Sandra Fluke and her minions better be on the lookout.

    These people are obsessively ‘occupied’ with class envy. They are driven by greed, envy, and covetousness.

    That description fits perfectly what welfare does to our society, leaves destruction in its wake while creating even more parasites. So if this lefty reporter doesn’t like parasites in his body, why should we, the producers, tolerate them at all.

    Clinton Dangerously Inconsistent on Palestinian Funding

    [In a highly controversial move, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has approved a $147 million economic support package to the Palestinian people despite a hold on these funds by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The move contradicts previous statements from Clinton that she would never send aid to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.]

    Egyptian Election Panel Upholds Ban
    on Top 3 Presidential Contenders

    [Egypt’s Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission (SPEC) has upheld the disqualifications of the Muslim Brotherhood’s designated candidate, along with leading Islamist presidential contender, Hazem Salah Abu Ismail, and former Mubarak Vice President and intelligence chief, Omar Suleiman.]

    Jordan Poised to Ban Religious Parties

    [“The main – the first dilemma, it’s a dilemma that relates to the political system, and the fact that the regime itself … is not serious about reform. But they respond to — partially, to some of the pressure out on the streets, and also responding to the general state of unrest in the region. That’s why there is a continuous attempt to absorb the reform movement and overpower it,” he added.]

    Actually, Yasha, not only do the burrows contain mom’s eggs, but they also contain her feces, and this lovely mishmash is readily identifiable microscopically.
    Perhaps a whole body immersion in malathion might do the trick?
    Enjoy!!

    “During his two-day stay in Los Angeles Metro Jail, Levine says he contracted a wicked case of scabies. In just two days”. Can you just imagine what the hard core activists are walking around with.

    How he writes!
    How do you turn an infestation of scabies into a cheap Romantic vignette? Only a liberal can do that, and call it journalism.
    What a joke this guy is.

  • Stella Baskomb

    “eXiled” ??

    He still looks “iled” to me,

  • William

    Your article title is slightly misleading. The story states that he contracted the scabies in prison not camping out in the occupy movement. I guess that doesn’t matter though right?

    Why do you feel the need to post nasty stories like this anyway? It certainly doesn’t bring you any credibility.

    There are plenty of perfectly good ways to criticize liberals without coming off as the scum of the earth.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Wow. What a metaphysical concept.

    Parasites that live on parasites.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    #28: The article also says that people get scabies from skin-on-skin contact. What skin-on-skin contact did Yasha have when he was in prison?

  • jorgen

    Why do you feel the need to post nasty stories like this anyway?

    I felt sorry for him for 10 seconds, but then thought that the scabies was his reward for being a leftie journalist joining the #occupy-scum to paint a rosy picture of the movement. He earned them! However, I do feel sorry for his doctor.

    He is anyway more likely to have picked scabies up in the camp than in prison.

  • jorgen

    #30 What skin-on-skin contact did Yasha have when he was in prison?

    You don’t want to know!

  • JPeden

    #28 William commented:

    “The story states that he contracted the scabies in prison not camping out in the occupy movement.”

    Right, William, Prison is a much cleaner place indeed. But I agree with you overall: if widdle Yasha doesn’t turn his sad plight – potentially affecting all Progressives!- into a demand for “free” scabies treatment from Obamacare asap, then his “Liberal” bona fides will be in serious doubt.

    According to a report in the Daily Rash, Occupy Wall Street organizers began using prostitutes to deter rapists at their demonstration sites. Looks like they still need some housecleaning. http://www.thedailyrash.com/occupy-wall-street-hires-prostitutes-to-combat-rising-rape-allegations

    Scabies via wikipedia “…..most often transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact, with a higher risk with prolonged contact. Initial infections require four to six weeks to become symptomatic.”

    I’m calling BS on this one. Jails and prisons are actually very clean. They are constantly being scrubbed and disinfected. Sheets and bedding are washed with enough bleach to kill anything 10 times over for fear of costly bed bug, lice or scabies eradication.

    This guy does 2 days at LA metro and claims to have contracted scabies from that? No Way. This guy probably ran around the occupy camp saying that he was a far left reporter and that he was writing articles for the cause and parlayed that into as much dirty smelly hairy hippy/ gutter punk sex he could stand and that’s where he caught the crabs. The article is just a way to explain it away to his girlfriend/boyfriend.

    There is a slight chance that he was anally raped by a fellow inmate/occupy rapist while in custody and sleeping soundly dreaming about riding a bicycle with no seat but either way it’s a win win for us….. BWAAAHHHAAAAAHHHAAAA!!!

  • AuntieMadder

    Did he pick up the scabies in a bar? Hope he bought ’em a couple of drinks first.

  • KC

    Come what may!
