I missed this powerful article when it came out a year ago. It drives home the point that many of these people do not share our values and never will. As such, migration constitutes an insidious attack on Western culture.
Racist Masonic Jewish central bankers and their proxies Organized Jewry and Freemasonry, are waging a genocidal hate-war
against the founding people of the West. I am all for legal immigration that reflects our economic needs and
cultural values and not a pernicious hidden agenda.
“Senegal was not a hellhole. Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms. But they are not our terms. The excrement is the least of it. Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.”
“I couldn’t wait to get home. So why would I want to bring Africa here? Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa… Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America. They want to destroy America as we know it.”
What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right (Jan 17, 2018)
By Karin McQuillan
Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community centre in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”
In plain English: s— is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it is racism.
Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral. The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.
I have seen. I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.
Senegal was not a hellhole. Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms. But they are not our terms. The excrement is the least of it. Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.
As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal. In fact, I was euphoric. I quickly made friends and had an adopted family. I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man. People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.
The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us. The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese. How could they be? Their reality is totally different. You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.
Take something as basic as family. Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins. All the men in one generation were called “father.” Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives. Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty. (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.) Sex, I was told, did not include kissing. Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas. Fidelity was not a thing. Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.
What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death. Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives. Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.
Yet family was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed – they were unknown. The value system was the exact opposite. You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives. There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system. They fail.
We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa. The kleptocracy extends through the whole society. My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies. The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store. If you were sick and didn’t have money, drop dead. That was normal.
So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father’s Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn’t bathing him, I wasn’t surprised. It was familiar.
In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom. Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp. After paying the bribe, you still didn’t know it if it would be mailed or thrown out. That was normal.
One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic. One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides – who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working – collapsed to the ground. They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking. She lay there in the dirt. Callousness to the sick was normal.
Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It’s not. It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture.
We think the Protestant work ethic is universal. It’s not. My town was full of young men doing nothing. They were waiting for a government job. There was no private enterprise. Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy. It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.
All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians. If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he’d go to another country. The reason? Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes. End of your business. You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives. The result: Everyone has nothing.
The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work. A job is something given to you by a relative. It provides a place where you steal everything to give back to your family.
I couldn’t wait to get home. So why would I want to bring Africa here? Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.
For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever. I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.
African problems are made worse by our aid efforts. Senegal is full of smart, capable people. They will eventually solve their own country’s problems. They will do it on their terms, not ours. The solution is not to bring Africans here.
We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration. They tell us we must end America as a white, Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation – to prove we are not racist. I don’t need to prove a thing. Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America. They want to destroy America as we know it.
As President Trump asked, why would we do that?
We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in. I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese. I am not willing to donate my country.
First comment by Tony B- who sent it. Thanks Tony
Nice little lesson in real geography, which used to include something about the customs in each nation when I went to grade school which now seems several light years separated from the knowledge of the average American. Now geography is just another taboo subject because it’s possible to learn something from it which does not fall into the “politically correct” basket (incorrect for political purposes) and that is simply not allowed in western mis-education.
Since this is about a place in Africa let me give you a little info on Africa, especially south of its central areas, about which you have actually been lied to in your “education.”
In school in my day, the common reference to Africa was NOT “the dark continent” it was known as “the EMPTY continent” as huge areas of it were actually empty of human beings. When the Dutch settled what might be loosely called the Transvaal area, it was EMPTY of human life. There was one small black tribe at the very southeastern tip of Africa whose land was not bothered by the Dutch, who were exclusively the first humans in their area. The British, always the traders, never the farmers, (Rothschild influence, I suppose) built towns on the coast, soon servicing inland diamond mines that Cecil Rhodes was already consolidating, but it was when Harry Oppenheimer took over the De Beers diamond mines that population actually expanded. This included the black population WHICH WAS TOTALLY IMPORTED, MOSTLY BY OPPENHEIMER, FROM THE CONGO REGION OF CENTRAL AFRICA, they were the Johnny-come-latelies to South Africa, NOT THE WHITE MAN.
Oppenheimer so misused them that, if they could find a way, they escaped the working prisons which were the diamond mines; those not caught still had their lives. There was no way for them to return to their original home and probably not much desire to. Some found ways to survive, sometimes hired to work for the Boer farmers. Gradually a black population grew.
It is not the Boers who displaced the blacks but the other way around, with the 20th century help of vicious communists and American taxpayer money. And now the blacks, happily pushed on by the western powers, are genociding both the Boer farmers and the South African English in the cities, ever more of whom are living in the open on dumps deprived of any means, any future, not even allowed to escape, the girls being regularly raped and anyone murdered at whim by out of control and absolutely uncivilized blacks.
Now you are aware of some of the bull shit you were handed in college about Africa. Read the eye witness article below about another part of Africa.
Caveat: I’m not prone to dwell on race but I am damned sick of the never-ending lies about WHITE MEN. Those idiots who pursue this nonsense will sure as hell wish we were back if they actually succeed in genociding us because in a short time there will not be a damned thing in operation if the new cult leaders can’t get some kind of bribe profit to allow for its fixing. Plus those left will get the rude awakening of talumdic/cabal/satanic absolute rule of “the chosen” because anyone not them is just cattle to be used as they please. Think of the 60 to 80 million humans they slaughtered and/or worked to death in their part century of running the soviet.
