Josue Zurita, a 31-year-old man from Galveston, TX, was recently killed by a fatal flesh-eating disease called necrotizing fasciitis. It’s a very rare bacterial infection that is known to kill soft tissue on the human body. People tried to figure out where and how he acquired the disease and it appears as though it was indirectly caused by Hurricane Harvey.
The man was helping with the damage caused by the Hurricane Harvey flooding and repairing homes for people and the tainted flood waters must have entered a wound or cut on the man’s skin. The wound in question was located on his upper left arm. This information was released by the Galveston County Health District. He walked into a hospital and six days later passed away.
The 31-year-old Galveston resident went to the hospital on October 10 with a seriously infected wound on his upper left arm. He was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, a rare bacterial infection that kills soft tissue, and died on October 16, according to the Galveston County Health District.
“It’s most likely this person’s infection occurred when bacteria from Harvey debris or floodwater entered his body through a wound or cut,” Dr. Philip Keiser, Galveston County Local Health Authority, said in a press release. “This is a very rare infection but that doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking for this person’s family and friends.”
That’s a very sad and unfortunate thing to happen to someone who was helping repair homes after a brutal natural disaster. His friends and family are likely devastated that this man who was so helpful fell victim to something so rare.
“He’s a very caring person,” said Brenda Avalos, wife of Josue’s cousin Anastacio. “He has a lot of friends here in Galveston that love him. Everybody is very sad. He was very young and always smiling.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s very rare that a person with a strong immune system and good hygiene would attain such a disease as necrotizing fasciitis. This is, so far, the only reported case of the flesh-eating disease in Galveston County that was in relation to flood waters caused by Hurricane Harvey. There may have been other cases, but none directly in conjunction with the flooding caused by the massive hurricane that blasted the region with 52 inches of rain and killed over 70 people.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people with strong immune systems who practice good hygiene and proper wound care have a low chance of getting necrotizing fasciitis. The Galveston County Health District is reminding people working on Hurricane Harvey recovery projects to take proper care of wounds to avoid further infections. The department adds that this particular infection was not related to Vibrio vulnificus, a bacteria naturally found in beach water.
It’s stated that anyone working in these conditions, where tainted water might enter a wound, that people should be extra careful and clean to avoid infections of the wounded area. Some people might forget while they’re exhausted and busy working to restore parts of Texas that were hammered by Harvey, so it’s extremely important to remind each other about taking care of the simple things that we often overlook.
As reported by Fox2Detroit:
People with wounds or cuts should:
Keep open wounds covered with clean, dry bandages until healed.
Don’t delay first aid of even minor, non-infected wounds (like blisters, scrapes or any break in the skin).
Avoid contact with natural bodies of water (lakes, rivers, oceans) if you have an open wound or skin infection.
Wash hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if washing is not possible.
Seek medical attention for redness, swelling or fever.
While some people might consider this basic knowledge, others might consider it a refresher on our common practices of hygiene and taking care of our body. Some people don’t realize how important it is to ensure cleanliness of wounds to make sure their body is protected from further damage. Any simple cut on our body can be an opening for a plethora of bacteria that could do major damage if not taken care of fast enough.
Other reports from KHOU state that this may not have been the first victim of flesh-eating bacteria caused by the murky floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey. They’re a local news website in Texas who state there were at least three people who passed away from the disease.
There’s been a third case of flesh-eating bacteria since Hurricane Harvey.
The disease had already killed one person and made another very sick. This most recent patient, Josue Zurita, did not survive.
The local news outlets would likely have better information on the particular statistics, but it does not affect the message behind the story that has deeply hurt the friends and family who lost their loved one.
Whether one person or three people passed away, the story remains the same. Take good care of yourself and stay on top of these things when you’re helping out.
Zurita’s wife, Brenda, has a GoFundMe page up if you’d like to help the family with expenses.

Starbucks New ‘Holiday’ Cup Was Just Released And Instantly The LGBTQ Community Is Cheering What It Says
Now they’ve gone too far!
Holiday cheer comes in many different forms, but if you’re one of the roughly 150 million Americans who consume an amount of caffeine that would constitute a dependency, that cheer is going to have to come with a double shot of espresso if it’s going to get the job done. Beginning in the early 70s Americans have been enjoying the fact that Starbucks has streamlined the process of feeding our addiction, keeping the masses happy and caffeinated.
The love affair between Americans and the left coast coffee company began crumbling, however, when the alt-left bias of the corporation became more evident. At one point the leadership even insinuated that they didn’t want those who proclaim themselves to be non-homosexual to be their customers. But because we’re a tolerant people, most of us just took our caffeine with a side of First Amendment and moved on with our lives.
Unfortunately, the militantly pro-LGBTQ company has pushed their agenda a little too far this year. While many anxiously awaited what would be on the holiday cup, they, of course, used it as a political platform. Fox News reports that the coffee conglomerate held dear by so many is now put a gay couple holding hands on the cup that will be held by so many this holiday season.
“Starbuck’s newest holiday cups are getting second looks after a Buzzfeed article suggested that they might be ‘gay.’
The cups feature a busy print of holiday favorites like mittens, presents and Christmas trees, and above the logo, two unseen people are holding hands.
Since the cups launched in October, however, people have taken to Twitter with hypotheses that the androgynous hands may belong to a pair of lesbians.
The idea may have sprung up from a video campaign Starbucks launched, advertising the return of the holiday cups. In the video, two women are seen standing at a table holding hands. The campaign claims, ‘The holidays mean something different for everyone.'”
It’s pretty damning evidence seen in the video. A video that the company didn’t have to put out, we might add. The cup could have stood on its own and let people make what they will of the artistic rendering of the hands, but they had to make it very clear that that particular couple was the one whose hands were being zoomed in on.
Not one for subtly, they also seem to have gotten some major LGBTQ groups on board with their program.
“Many Twitter users seem [sic] to have jumped to the same conclusion about the hands, with one person writing, ‘We’re loving @Starbucks’ new festive ad with a lesbian couple.’”
— British LGBT Awards (@BritLGBTAwards) November 6, 2017
Critics, meanwhile, are also responding to new hypotheses about the cup, with one on Twitter writing, ‘The new Starbucks cup has [a] lesbian couple on it. Rom 1:26 ‘because of this, God gave them over to shameful lust’…’
The new Starbucks cup has lesbian couple on it. Rom 1:26 “because of this,God gave them over to shameful lust”…
— Jimmy H Peralez (@h_peralez) November 2, 2017
Another called for a boycott, saying, ‘This Year’s Starbucks Holiday Campaign Features a Lesbian Couple,’ followed by the hashtag #BoycottStarbucks.
— Gabe 🇱🇷✝️ ✭ (@RNDACS) November 7, 2017
Starbucks has not confirmed the legitimacy of these suspicions, but did respond positively to a tweet applauding them on their ‘Christmas campaign … featuring lesbians.’”
We're happy you enjoy the new campaign, Rufus! 💚
— Starbucks Coffee (@Starbucks) November 13, 2017
You’ll notice in the above tweet that they’re actually calling it a “campaign.” It makes one wonder what they’re actually campaigning for, considering that gay rights have been an established thing for quite some time now. Maybe they’re campaigning to make sure that everyone who has objections has to be quiet about it from now on.
“Buzzfeed has, meanwhile, asserted the hypothesis is fact.
As the Buzzfeed article writes, ‘While people who follow both Starbucks holiday cup news and LGBT issues celebrated the video, the ordinary Starbucks customer probably didn’t realize the cup might have a gay agenda.’
Before following with, ”I can attest to the lesbianism of The Hands,’ my gay BuzzFeed colleague said upon careful inspection.’
In an emailed statement from the coffee chain, the company neither confirms nor denies the allegations.
‘Each year during the holidays we aim to bring our customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season, and we will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world,’ the statement reads.
Starbucks has faced criticisms over their holiday cups before. In 2015 and 2016, people claimed the monochromatic red cups weren’t holiday enough.”
While Starbucks might not be claiming the sexuality of the hands on their now infamous cup, the LGBTQ community is ready to claim it for them, and just that is enough to make you want to throw out even the sweetest of PSL’s.
— On Top Magazine (@OnTopMag) November 7, 2017
— Jen Sabella (@jensabella) November 17, 2017
What this cup says is that the company, like many others, has pledged their allegiance, and it’s to those of confused sexual orientation. And if that’s something you want to support, it’s your right to do so. No one here is looking to tell you what to do, we’re just looking to inform you so that you can make your own decision. With that being said, there seems to be no room for doubt that this cup, as with almost every corporate decisions that Starbucks makes, is a slap in the face of traditional values, and supporting of the progressive liberal agenda.
So feel free to drink up, but just know that every time you shell out your hard earned money for an overpriced cup of coffee, you’re supporting something. Make sure it’s something that you want for your kids.

Blacks Take Over School – Force Whites To Pay For Slavery In Disgusting Way With Their Urine
Thanks to Obama’s race-baiting antics over the past 8 years, we now have full-fledged race war raging in our country as white people are being savagely attacked and persecuted simply for the color of their skin. Liberals are making matters even worse in recent months, as they’re now actively pushing for segregation, as “black only” restaurants, graduation ceremonies, and campus housing is being established, as leftist loons continue make all whites “pay reparations” for 5% of the population owning slaves 200 years ago. But now a group of rabid black racists have completely overrun a publicly-funded college in Washington State, and what they’re forcing whites to do as a way to “pay for slavery” is so vile, it will make you convinced who the true racists in our country truly are.
Over the past several weeks, Evergreen College in Olympia, Washington, has been making headlines after a series of disgusting videos surfaced of the terror that black students and liberals were inflicting on white students and teachers. You might recall the story about a month ago where black students organized a “day without whites” on campus where they were forcibly removing whites from campus, going from building to building in gang-sized elements screaming alarming racist-filled tirades into white people’s faces, demanding that whites immediately vacate the campus. Here’s a clip below if you’re not familiar with what happened:
But disturbingly, a “day without whites” was just the beginning of these domestic terrorists’ complete takeover, thanks to the university president George Sumner Bridges (who is a rabid liberal himself) continuing to let black supremacists completely overrun the school. Now it’s being widely reported that whites are now unable to to the bathroom without having a black liberal escort, in what sounds like a page straight out of a 1930’s Nazi-era story. Watch the clip starting at 3:22 for the part about the bathrooms.
“It essentially sounded like you were being held hostage there,” the interviewer says to one white person on campus. “If you were going to go to the bathroom you had to go with two escorts. Is that true?”
There is absolutely nothing being done to stop these rabid black supremacists who continue to take out their vile and disgusting hatred and rage onto white faculty members and white students. White professor Bret Weinstein, who was cruelly targeted by a horde of about 50 blacks and liberals who ambushed his classroom, recently spoke out about what he was forced to endure, as the liberal media continues to praise this disgusting act on whites as “social progress” being made, as they continue to label this reverse racism as “reparations” that must be made for whites owning slaves 200 years ago. In a recent interview with Wallstreet Journal, Weinstein discussed how he was viciously targeted.
“Racially charged, anarchic protests have engulfed Evergreen State College, a small, public liberal-arts institution where I have taught since 2003. In a widely disseminated video of the first recent protest on May 23, an angry mob of about 50 students disrupted my class, called me a racist, and demanded that I resign. My ‘racist’ offense? I had challenged coercive segregation by race. Specifically, I had objected to a planned ‘Day of Absence’ in which white people were asked to leave campus on April 12.”
“There is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under-appreciated roles . . . and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away,” I wrote. “On a college campus, one’s right to speak—or to be—must never be based on skin color.”
Could you imagine the outrage of black students at a college were being held hostage and prevented from going to the bathroom without a white escort? Why does a double standard exist in our country? Why is Harvard University allowed to hold a separate graduation ceremony for blacks and no one bats an eye? How is it that separate housing is being established just for blacks at Colorado State University and this type of segregation is deemed acceptable in our country? Or a cafe on campus where whites are completely banned from eating at, as is the case at The American University in Washington D.C.?
It’s absolutely outrageous what is going on in our country. Whites are being victimized, demonized, discriminated against, segregated, bullied, terrorized, and now unable to use the freaking bathroom, all while liberals continue to assert this is some how “civil rights progress.” Martin Luther King Jr. must be rolling around in his grave right now as what he fought, bled, and died for is literally being flushed down the toilet by these rabid blacks and liberals, who have no freaking idea what being an American even truly means.
This Is The Sick New Protest NFL Players Have Planned For ‘Racist’ Thanksgiving Day Games After They See Who’s Showing Up
This will piss you off!
Thanksgiving is fast approaching and in case you didn’t have any family controversy to keep you livid this holiday season, your friends over at the National Football League will, of course, do something infuriating to disrupt your holiday. This year, the already failing sports league is further damaging their reputation by retaliating against one of their own teams.
Apparently, the current National Anthem protest that has dug the NFL into an almost unrecoverable hole is being combined with a grievance that the social justice warriors were wining about previously. That being the name of Washington’s team. The Redskins were at the center of a controversy over their name and if it was disrespectful to the Native American population in the United States.
The most recent objection is to the fact that the Redskins will be hosting a Thanksgiving day game, which some consider to be some sort of sick joke. If we assumed that the majority of Americans even cared about football anymore (which their ratings would say that we don’t) it seems like the anniversary of making friends with the Native Americans would be a great thing to celebrate. However, according to Fox News Insider, that’s just not how it’s being viewed by those fellow Americans who can find offense at anything:
“A writer for The Nation magazine criticized the NFL for putting the Washington Redskins game on primetime on Thanksgiving.
Dave Zirin wrote that the ‘R*dskins’ name is a ‘slur, a name that exists mainly because of genocide and displacement.’
‘It’s as if NFL owners, by having Washington host this game, are having their own private joke,’ Zirin wrote, adding ‘a league that celebrates racial slurs can never be an engine for social change.’
Washington fan Juan Williams, who said he also finds the name offensive to Native Americans, asked the panel their thoughts on the story.
‘Doesn’t matter what you call them, they’re going to lose anyway,’ Philadelphia native and Eagles fan Jesse Watters remarked.”
Watters remark is probably the most accurate assessment that could be made. Not only do many predict that they will lose the game, everyone in the NFL is losing on a much grander scale lately. The NFL has completely PC’ed itself out of an audience by alienating anyone who possesses even a modicum of patriotism.
Maybe some of the former NFL fans would have been open to hearing about any problems actual Native Americans had about the name “Redskins” if it had been the American Indians who were making the complaints, but at this juncture, it’s a moot point. In fact, the same Fox interview pointed out that a recent study showed that about 90 percent of Native Americans didn’t find the name “Redskins” offensive at all.
However, what many do find offensive is what the teams have planned for the Thanksgiving game. Whether prompted by the Holiday shake-up, or as a flailing attempt to try an appease the disgruntled ex-fans who are still boycotting all things NFL, the league is considering keeping the teams inside their lockers for the National Anthem. Daily Mail reports that this is not the response to the boycott that the President or the people wanted, and President Trump let them know about it:
“Donald Trump ramped up his battle with the National Football League on Wednesday, tweeting his frustrations about national-anthem protests before 6 o’clock in the morning from the confines of his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort.
‘The NFL is now thinking about a new idea – keeping teams in the Locker Room during the National Anthem next season. That’s almost as bad as kneeling!’ the president wrote.
‘When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart? This issue is killing your league!’
Trump was referring to a Washington Post report on Tuesday that outlined a possible new league policy being privately debated by NFL team owners.”
‘When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart?’ the president wrote in a jab at Roger Goodell; ‘This issue is killing your league!’
Various players and teams have stayed in their locker rooms before games this year, emerging only after the National Anthem is played in order to avoid the decision of whether or not to stand.
Most recently, Trump slammed Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch for continuing to sit for The Star Spangled Banner, despite standing for the Mexican anthem before a game on Sunday.
Lynch’s latest protest took place on Sunday before the Raiders played the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.”
The NFL should never have found itself in this predicament in the first place. Professional sports is where people go to try and avoid thinking about any heavy issues of the day, but because of the disrespect of the players, those issues invaded a once worry free refuge. When it’s ceased to be politics-free, it ceased to be popular.
