George Carlin predicted panic of the Americans over coronavirus 20 years ago
One of the legendary and American favorite comic-philosopher of the century George Carlin was not only funny as hell but also predictive. In his 1999 routine, titled “You’re All Diseased” he spoke about America’s obsession with hygiene and foresaw the panic over the coronavirus.
He was running before the time.
During his HBO specials, Carlin slammed the nation’s being freaked out about the germs so it’s getting easy for the media to whip the people into a frenzy. The comic always liked to mock people who are obsessed with cleanliness. This man knew how to shock the American over-phobic population with the facts like you don’t have to wash your hands every time you use the bathroom.
“The media constantly running stories about all the latest infections. Salmonella, hantavirus, bird flu, and Americans, they panic easily. So now everybody is running around scrubbing this and spraying that, and overcooking their food and repeatedly washing their hand trying to avoid all contacts with germs.”
“And it’s ridiculous, and it goes to a ridiculous length. In prison, before they give you a lethal injection, they swab your arm with alcohol.”
