Not wanting to derail the topic, but I was watching a documentary a few weeks back how "western people" would basically kidnap children and put them in a refuge for "homeless children" so they can apply for all kinds of grant money. Sickening stuff.
Remember when American evangelical "missionaries" with tens of millions of dollars and the blessings of several dozen prominent US government officials went up and down the Horn and the Sahel and basically had homosexuality turned into a capital crime overnight?
Right wing fears of foreigners coming over the US border, to kill civilians and force cultural change on Americans is simply...Remember when American evangelical "missionaries" with tens of millions of dollars and the blessings of several dozen prominent US government officials went up and down the Horn and the Sahel and basically had homosexuality turned into a capital crime overnight?
Oh of course we don't, because the news media could give two shits about what we do to Africa.
