Streisand Blames Reagan for Her Son's AIDS
NewsMax ^ | 11/17/03 | Limbacher

Posted on 11/17/2003 10:31:44 AM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection

We don't usually report what's in the National Enquirer, but we have to point out the hypocrisy of the left-wing media establishment, which gladly cited the tabloid's reports on Rush Limbaugh but has been silent on its drug allegations about NBC's Matt Lauer and now new revelations about Democrat diva Barbra Streisand.

The Enquirer's Nov. 25 issue charges, "Barbra Streisand's fanatical support of the CBS movie smearing President Ronald Reagan wasn't just politics - it was personal!"

Babs' son, Jason Gould, who appeared in her movie "The Prince of Tides," is infected with AIDS, the tabloid says, and she has repeatedly cited the Democrat party line that Reagan should have done more to stop the disease.

She said as far back as 1992 that she would "never forgive" Reagan for his positions on AIDS education and research. "Streisand hates Reagan so much it clouds her judgment, insiders insist," the weekly reports.

The Enquirer notes that Malibu Barbi has worked on at least three projects with the producers of "The Reagans," Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, "who are known for their gay advocacy projects and remakes of musicals."

"There is absolutely no way Barbra didn't see the script before production started," the Enquirer quotes a source as saying.

Michael Paranzino, a former GOP congressional staffer who launched BoycottCBS.com, said, "And that is why CBS found themselves just three weeks out, realizing that they had a hatchet job on their hands."

So how come the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, CBS etc. cited the Enquirer's reports on Bill Clinton and O.J. Simpson but are giving Streisand a pass?

I hope barbaaaaaaaaaaara hates clintoon as much then, since he did very little about aids during his, uh, watch.

She ought to blame her depraved son,
her own lousy childrearing (no pun intended),
and the human petrie dish who buggered him.

Just because your son couldn't stand to touch a woman after being raised by you is no reason to blame Reagan, Ms. Streisand.

She needs to read And the Band Played ON,,the lack of an early response to aids was mostly because of the gay community not wanting their bath houses closed down.

I didn't know Reagan swung that way. Maybe that will be in next year's Movie-of-the-Week.

If only Reagan had taught him about how you can get AIDS from having sex with multiple partners at gay bath houses! It was Reagan's responsibility, since clearly his mother wasn't teaching him anything.

Unless he contracted AIDS through an innocent blood transfusion, I have little sympathy for this clown.

Dear Barbra,

You are a total idiot. You want to blame everyone else for your problems, while you and your son refuse to take any responsibility whatsoever for his condition -- a condition that could have easily been avoided.

Perhaps the real blame should be placed with you. A good mother would have taught her son better. At one time, you were a good entertainer, but you are now a "has been" and you have failed miserably as a mother.

Signed,

Several million former fans

How could Reagan have stopped her son from getting AIDS? How could MORE education have stopped her son from getting infected? (What year did he get infected, by the way?) How many times does the media have to broadcast the message about AIDS before it sinks in? More money is being spent on AIDS research than on any other disease. People were aware even before Rock Hudson died that indiscriminate sexual behavior with multiple partners led to life-threatening medical problems.

This is just one of the stages of grief and no matter what her politics are, from mother to mother I feel sorry for her. Hopefully, she will get a clue. It's easier to blame anyone other than oneself or one's child but the responsibilty for bad parenting or sexual promiscuity lies only with those people, not the government.

Your mom must have been around gay people her whole life, right?
She certainly worked with gay people. But there were very few gay people around while I was a child. 

How did your mom respond to your coming out to her?
I think she would love to have a grandchild, and I think that is probably the greatest disappointment to her. But you know, she may still get one. But I want to get a dog first. [Laughs

It does seem that your coming-out has prompted your mom’s political involvement on behalf of gays and lesbians.
I’m sure I’ve been a positive influence, but she’s a pretty liberal person, and she’s very passionate about human rights. So I wouldn’t take the credit for her support of gay rights, although she certainly got a more inside perspective from me. From this article: This boy’s life

Does she think President Reagan should have personally put the condom on her son when he was about to get it on with some dude?

Actually, if true this would lessen my contempt for BS. Yes, she'd still be a brainless, elitist leftist, but her bitterness -- however misguided -- would flow at least in part from love for her son.

It was the Clinton administration - early on - that squashed important research done at Harvard Medical School and NIH about AIDs research. One physican/researcher at Harvard had his findings shut out of any debate.

So what could Reagan have done to prevent her son from having unprotected sex with another man???? Give me a frickin break. Reagan was the President during the 80s. Her son contracted AIDS during the 90s. Seems to me Babs is looking for someone else to blame for her sons' AIDS rather than to blame her son for reckless and irresponsible actions for which *HE* and he alone must accept responsibility. I'm sure her son doesn't blame Reagan.

Babs, You are pathetic. An atypical liberal that blames everyone else for their problems. I bet you've told your son it's not his fault too. Assuming it's not from a transfusion!

And if he had taken the dramatic and effective steps of shutting down the gay bath houses, what would Democrats have said about Reagan?

The truth about Reagan is probably that he had many friends and loved ones who were gay and was not at all a persecutor of gays.

But, of course, to not be considered a "homophobe," you must not merely tolerate the gay lifestyle with a "live and live" attitude, you must celebrate it. You must not take any steps to protect public health that might inconvenience any gay people or draw any adverse attention to them. You must not shut down gay bath houses or preach against promiscuity or unsafe sex practices (such as those that involve tearing rectal membranes while bathing those torn membranes with bodily fluids.)

And when the disease spreads, you must divert most of the national budget to finding cutting-edge cures for AIDS so that people can do exactly waht they feel like doing without having to suffer from the inherent risks of what they want to do. Otherwise you don't care, or are a homophobe.

Perhaps he is homosexual. If so, his behavior caused his aids.

If he got it from a transfusion or from some other vector outside his choice, then it makes it even more sad.

If from choices about his own behavior, then it is sad, but it is not someone else's fault. It is the fault of his own choices and the fault of those (the one) who infected him.

The only thing Clinton did with regards to AIDS was to popularize the type of behaivior that spreads it far and wide. Streisand's hatchling got AIDS from either a) TOo muck Kielbasa up his trapdoor or b) Shooting smack out behind the set.

Educating an idiot who is intent upon short-sighted and impulsive behaivior is pointless. Those on the far left-hand side of the bell curve are immune from even the impact of basic common sense.

Why does Reagan get blamed for the spread of AIDS? Is this not essentially an STD? Were the bathhouses in San Francsico closed in the early eighties? Would gay activists let the bathhouses be closed? Were all in the gay community practicing safe sex? Why is it Reagan's fault that you contract a deadly disease through risky personal behaviour (excepting those who got it through transfusions, or from their birth mother)?
