The Long History of Blaming Immigrants in Times of Sickness

Health Editor’s Note: The xenophobia that has come from the COVID-19 pandemic was here long before we experienced the the current pandemic. How many times can Trump be quoted as using the term, ‘Chinese Flu’? Trump is often heard blaming the Democrats for COVID-19. He of course blames everyone but himself and his criminal mishandling of the pandemic from its beginning and even now he has no plan to get us out of this viral morass.  

Fact is that The Naturalization Act in 1790 was a law that described citizenship for only free white persons of good moral character. America was founded on stolen land, stolen from the indigenous peoples who were here long before Columbus and the white men that followed.  

We have to be better than this……Carol

  1. Imperialistic Catholicism and the Jesuit order??? Historys relative aspect to the Popes declaration of the right of discovery…plant the Flag and it belongs to the Church… Imperialistic roman demagoguery and the hosts of the Inquisition that killed the Native indigenous tribes… If in fact you did not believe in the power of the Popes, as well there decreese, any form of sacrifice to the Fake Jesus ideology was sanctioned to terminate haritics and non believers. The Imperialist have been in power for centuries… And we find ourselves in the hand of the Illuminati Jesuit order today as Freemasonry and the CFRians are steering the ship of American Citizens into the abyss of commercial and moral bankruptcy, the former is the deficit and has already manifested itself since the signing of the constitution. The latter is ongoing as MSM and the Hollywood gang of Kabblistic-Zoharians publish the filth that we all are witnessing on the screens of deception and propaganda media. Nuff said…
