If he said to quarantine in 1984, I could understand since we really didn’t know much about AIDS then. But 1992? Come on.
As of mid-1991, 38% of Americans still thought that you could get AIDS from kissing, and 29% were worried that they would get AIDS during their lifetimes. 35% said they would change their behavior by “taking more care to avoid homosexual people or those you think are homosexual or places where homosexuals meet.” 43%, FOURTY-THREE PERCENT, thought in 1989 that civil liberties should be suspended in the war on AIDS.
Of course, 89% of people thought that kids with AIDS should be allowed to attend school with other kids, and only 10% supported a quarantine, so huh, maybe Huckabee was legitimately extreme about all this.
Thanks for your response. You may to look at this post of mine.
He was educated in Arkansas, which isn’t much different from not being educated at all.
