Secret Trade in Monkey Meat That Could Unleash Ebola in UK: How an Appetite for African Delicacies
Daily Mail ^ | 2 August 2014 | Andrew Malone

Posted on 08/03/2014 2:05:36 AM PDT by nickcarraway

With the sun beating down on the strange and exotic-looking meats on sale — some dripping blood, some heavily smoked and impossible to identify — the sights and sounds at this London market are straight out of Africa. Skinned goat carcasses dangle overhead, blackened cow heads and lamb brains are lined up in trays, while baskets tucked in darker corners brim with yellowing strips of cured flesh.

Nearby, women hawk spices, cassava and yams, as men in shacks offer cheap airline tickets to Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon, as well as cash transfers back to family members still living on the continent.

At Lagos restaurant, just past ‘Monni Matters’ foreign exchange and the ‘God Is Good Hair Salon’, there is nothing fancy about the cheap seats and chipped tables — but what’s on the menu is a taste of home.

At £5 a plate, dishes include Nkwobi, a traditional meal of spiced cow feet and ‘assorted meat and fish’ with pounded yam, through to giant African snails, served as part of a ‘designer stew’ with, again, unnamed ‘assorted meats’.

A 1996 outbreak in Gabon was caused when local people ate the fresh body of a dead chimpanzee they found in the bush.

Yeah, we always eat dead stuff we find on the ground here, too.

Seeing roadkill and then relating it to meat all packaged neatly at Costco has just about made me vegetarian!

All my family members over the age of 12 have just left for a week at the coast. I’m looking forward to not having to cook big dead pieces of meat for a week.

Saw some stories years/decades ago that attributed HIV to the habit of eating monkey brains.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

Yep...and AIDS also came from West Africa via chimps. If these savages would just quit eating and screwing monkeys maybe these diseases would die out.

I’ll bet that Obama is licking his chops and drooling while thinking of fresh monkey steaks on the grill along with some chilled elephant blood dakaris on the porch.

I might starve to death before I’d eat a dead monkey off the ground.

That’s why I said “I might.” It’s possible that while I was trying to force myself to eat a dead monkey, some other starving person would eat it and save me the trouble.

And then they could eat me.

Also, roadkill is probably safer than something that died on its own.

If people followed God’s simple food laws in Leviticus 11, they would know that “bush meat” is not supposed to be consumed by humans. The two primary vectors for Ebola are meat from primates and fruit bats, both of which God says are not to be eaten. Of course Protestants insist these laws are arcane nonsense. Let us hope that Ebola doesn’t spread any further than it already has.

Speaking of road kill, I went hunting once and didn’t see a single deer. On the way home, I saw a doe that had been hit by a car but was still alive. Both of its front legs were broken. I dragged it about 20 yards or so from the road, and shot it at point blank range with my shotgun. I made a whole lot of chili from that doe.

Islam is a religion of Caucasians living in the north of Africa and the Middle East. I think most Sub-Saharan Africans are Christian or follow animist religions.

Imported Africans bring their ‘culture’ and diseases with them. Those who once squatted on their haunches gnawing a piece of monkey in their ancestral habitat in Africa will buy illegally imported monkey meat when they are allowed to live in England.

Import the ‘savage’ and you also import the savage’s culture and the savage’s diseases.

Hello Mr. Ebola.

There were, and still are, reasons the informed, from Lincoln on held the view that black and white can not live together.

Generations of well meaning but ill advised American social engineering effort, and sufficient spending on said social engineering, to probably bankrupt America, had little significant positive impart of the ‘culture’ of blacks living in America.

Those blacks with the ability and motivation to make something of their lives, so did. The rest accepted the free sh*t proffered by the social engineers and busied themselves with whelping generations of bastards who were acculturated to do the same rather than become productive citizens of the American Republic.

Effectively, the black underclass has become a class of societal parasites. As life in a modern society is an ongoing IQ test, does the low IQ parasite have the right to take from the productive?

Does the breeder of bastards have any claim on the productive to support her spawn?

Should those who embraced the Urban Black Welfare Culture, and its core acceptance of being dependent of others instead of providing for oneself, be allowed to spend America into destruction?

This is not Africa. America was a republic of self responsible citizens.

The social engineered ‘welfare state’ turned America into a nation of welfare state socialism dependents whose upkeep has long ago passed the point of being unsustainable. The Welfare State and its dependent clients/parasites now pose a clear and present threat of financial destruction to the entire American economy.

America can, and will care for those who truly can’t help themselves. The American Republic can not, should not, and must not destroy itself for any faction.

America can no longer survive the societal parasites bred up by welfare.

Whether a societal vermifuge can be devised and implemented, or whether the parasitic class will destroy the body politic remains to be seen.

What is unambiguously clear is that America can no longer support the unproductive.

Nor should we.

In closing, I draw your attention to the fact that the educable retarded can manage to support themselves.

If the retarded can become self supporting, why can’t the welfare classes?
