I vividly remember AIDS being a huge issue during the Reagan administration and I can't recall any contemporaneous criticism of the Reagan administration on that issue. It was such a huge issue that my elementary school handed out booklets about AIDS. The copyright date on the book was 1986, during Reagan's administration, and the booklets were published by some government division, though I can't remember which. I was only 11 in 1986. Obviously, educating children about the myths, realities, and dangers of HIV/AIDS was a big priority in the mid to late 1980s...when Reagan was president.
I understand that it is important to debunk the lies of the leftist homosexual agenda, especially when they re-write history. However, there is a bigger picture that most people get sidetracked from seeing - the notion that Reagan was repsonsible for the spread of AIDS because he did'nt spend or care enough is a lie. The reason it spread was because of risky behavior like drug needle use and having sex with multiple anonymous partners in bath houses.
