Skip to comments.AIDS and PC, a fatal combination (DOJ fiasco)

Two unpleasant topics of conversation most of us avoid are the epidemic of HIV/AIDS among prison inmates and a variety of sometimes violent events resulting in transmission of the disease. Some states long ago implemented policies to protect the uninfected part of the prison population while providing exceptional medical treatment and counseling to the infected population.
In South Carolina, it has worked so well since 1998 that there has only been a single transmission of HIV/AIDS to a noninfected prisoner. All that may change, however, thanks to a threat from Eric Holder's Justice Department.
South Carolina received a letter from the now-infamous Civil Rights Division that the policy of keeping infected inmates at a designated facility, instead of scattered across the state in the general prison population, may unfairly stigmatize infected prisoners. To the Obama political appointees in the Civil Rights Division, this constitutes discrimination under the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Gay men have been prohibited from giving blood since 1985. But momentum to change the ban has grown recently, with advocacy groups, blood-collection organizations and members of Congress calling for the Food and Drug Administration to revise the donation rules.
The Health and Human Services Committee, in its recommendations, noted that current policy permits some potentially high-risk blood donations and prevents some possible low-risk donations. But the panel said existing research isn't adequate to justify lifting the ban. The FDA has final say over the blood rules.
Gay rights groups said the blood donation policy discriminates against gay and bisexual men. They point out a heterosexual man or a woman having sex with an HIV-positive partner is restricted from giving blood for one year from that contact, while gay men face a lifetime ban.
Can their be any doubt that Evil is on the march?
“Holder’s DOJ is clearly out of control.”
That clown needs to go back to what he knows best - facilitating pardons for high-roller felons.
Hell, because I travel outside of the country I am barred from giving blood. Now they want to drill for blood among the diseased? Typical libtard thinking.
G-d bless SC!
Not enough AIDS in cracker babies for Holder and DO”J”?
A simple tenet of disease control is followed to protect the health of others. If such had been done in the 1980s with the homosex population, we would not now have 2 million cases of HIV/AIDs in the country.
Got it in one! I remember when AIDS was first getting started. Anyone who suggested quarantine and contact searching was shouted down as "prejudiced against gays". Which is precisely why so many queers have died of it. Too stupid to follow common-sense health requirements.
silly question, but if this was the case should not there be fewer homosexuals rather than more?
Stupid people outnumber bright ones by a good bit. And the queers are doing everything in their power to obfuscate the consequences of the lifestyle.....WITH the connivance of the news media. It's hard to make an intelligent, informed decision when you are inundated with propaganda 24/7/365.

This was when the science of disease control was trumped by rights of deviants. Look at the war on people who use tobacco today and think if the same pressure had been applied to the deviants. It is a sad day when public health is sacrificed for the benefit of a perverted behavior.
More evidence the insane are in charge of the assylum...
Just like back ‘round 1933:
Yep, I’ve read some on the gays in the Nazi party, there was a fair amount of them.
