Our Gorgeous Mosaic

Along with the influx of Third World immigrants, mostly illegal, we are also experiencing an influx of exotic and usually disgusting and/or lethal diseases such as ebola virus and West Nile fever. Now our government's complete failure to control this country's borders has led to a real blast from the past--the Black Death itself!

A woman in Los Angeles is listed as being in stable condition, after having been diagnosed with the first confirmed case of bubonic plague in California since 1984. The woman was not identified, but since Los Angeles in now majority Hispanic and since the disease is known to be prevalent in Mexico, the chances are virtually certain that she is either a Mexican, or contracted the disease from contact with Mexicans. She was admitted to a hospital April 13 with a fever, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms. A blood test confirmed the bacterial disease, and she was given antibiotics, officials said.

Bubonic plague is not contagious, but if left untreated it can morph into airborne pneumonic plague, which is. Bubonic plague is usually transmitted to humans from the bites of fleas infected by rodents. This country now has extensive sanitation and pest control problems in areas containing large illegal immigrant populations, and this is causing a number of diseases to spread.

We are currently awaiting the first case of Chinese avian flu to arrive in this country, which is a country cousin to the infamous Spanish flu of the 1918 epidemic which killed 600,000 Americans in under six months.

Bubonic plague in its pneumonic form killed an estimated 25 million people in Europe, one third of the continent's population, between 1346 and 1351. It has been extinct in Europe since the last outbreak in 1720 in Marseilles, due to superior White standards of civilization and sanitation, but still occurs fairly often in Africa, Latin America, and Asia, and as the diseased populations of these continents pour across our uncontrolled borders in scenes reminiscent of "Camp of the Saints," they bring their sicknesses with them. Joy unspeakable!
