Skip to comments.Adolf Hitler sex video condemned by Aids charities
Posted on 09/04/2009 7:07:31 AM PDT by tlb
An Aids-awareness advert depicting Adolf Hitler having unprotected sex has been condemned by mainstream health charities for stigmatising people infected with the virus.
The provocative commercial, which ends with the tag-line "AIDS is a mass murder", aims to scare young people into using condoms by associating the deadly disease with the German dictator.
But what appears to be a typical, if steamy, advert for perfume or underwear takes a macabre twist when the camera pans to man's face at the moment of climax - revealing him to be Adolf Hitler.
"Of course there are many HIV organisations that run their own campaigns, however I think the advert is incredibly stigmatising to people living with HIV who already face much stigma and discrimination due to ignorance about the virus," a spokeswoman for the National AIDS Trust.
"On top of this it fails to provide any kind of actual prevention message (e.g. use a condom) and may deter people to come forward for testing.
"The advert is also inaccurate because in the UK thanks to treatment HIV is a manageable condition that does not necessary lead to AIDS."
"The campaign is designed to shake people up, to bring the topic of Aids back to centre stage, and to reverse the trend of unprotected sexual intercourse.
The videos will be broadcast on German television stations from next week, but only after 9pm because of their sexual content.
"We worked on the campaign for free because we wanted to help out," Mr Weishäupl said. "We have also produced versions in English and Spanish so they can be broadcast abroad, if there is interest."
The campaign also features poster adverts of Saddam Hussein and Joseph Stalin, and a radio spot that re-works a famous speech by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist.

Someone should rework the ad showing Adolf Hitler eating vegetables, proclaiming the dangers of vegetarianism.
Obama’s face may have been more appropriate. Because if/when the deathcare bill passes, that’s what he is going to be.
HIV is not airborne or contracted by normal contact. But, we did qrarantine in the 80’s, who know how many people would be alive today?
Wonder why the left has not embraced him yet?
If homophobia would go viral, the AIDS virus would disapear.
They wanna "council" grandma and grandpa on "End of Life" choices, punish you if you eat, drink or smoke too much, but the "aids crowd" will probably put more of a drain on the healthcare system under Obamacare, as many who couldn't even begin to pay for treatment, will now have us the "taxpayers" paying for their VERY EXPENSIVE treatments.
The biggest problem of this is it is not PC. It makes a moral judgement over infected partners spreading AIDS to others.
If they'd read the AIDS Activist's primer, they would have used something cute and cuddly, like, for example, fornicating TellyTubbies. At least that wouldn't scare the kiddies, like that mean old nazi...
The Lavender Mafia politicized that disease.
Mexican Flu did not result in a closing of our Southern border to visitors either.
Because he showed his hand. Stalin murdered even more and yet Reds in America held on long and bitter for decades to defend him.
CPUSA was cool with Hitler until he betrayed Stalin. Communism is NOT anti-fascism.
They are imprisoned in Castro’s Cuba. Maybe we SHOULD be looking to the Cuban medical system.
Pretty ironic since the gays got him into power.
I didn’t think that looked like Hitler
True, but they didn't know that at the time..still they didn't qrarantine and they should have at least till they found out it was not airborne or contracted by normal contact like you say.

If Stigmatism Stops Sexual Behavior, is that all bad?
