Obama To Mandate AIDS Integration In Prison?
BillLawrenceOnline.Com ^ | 8-23-10

Posted on 08/23/2010 12:41:41 PM PDT by Tribune7

South Carolina is expecting a lawsuit by the Obama administration aimed at ending its policy of segregating prisoners with AIDS that has been in place since 1998.

The administration claims the policy prevents infected prisoners "from participating in activities and jobs of their choosing"; is unconstitutional and that the separation "stigmatizes" prisoners with AIDS.

And, the goal in ending this ban? To assure HIV is spread among inmates?

Is this yet another right the administration will grant the American people?

Obama also lifted a 22-year-old ban on entry into the United States for people infected with HIV/AIDS.

His policies all seem to have a negative impact on US.

Common sense is dead, I tell you. No one is looking to stigmatize, just trying to keep a five-year stretch for drugs from becoming a damn death sentence! I worked in prisons for 3 years and watched my older brother die of AIDS back in the early 90’s. Prison rape/sex is nasty and needs to be dealth with, but reality dictates that no plan is 100% effective except for segregation. AIDS is an infectious disease and needs to be treated as such, not treated like a civil rights issue.

My attitude is that if the AIDS is getting folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good if everybody gets it. If you’ve got AIDS, you’re gonna be better off if you’ve got a whole bunch of other prisoners demanding AZT, or whatever, and right now not everybody’s infected and demanding treatment and that's bad for everybody and I think when you spread the AIDS around, it’s good for everybody.

Yes I am sure he did.

Just think of how many lives could have been saved if we had quanrantined AIDS patients in 1979 (and beyond). This was a rare disease, in known populations, spread by well-defined behaviors. It was very manageble.

But the homosexuals were appalled by the idea. At the very least they should have immediately closed the bath houses in San Francisco -- but that plan was protested. Now, many of those protesters are dead.

Of course! That’s step 1.

Step 2 is to confine all Republicans in a prison. It’s the final solution.

This can't be true.

This is again a case where “ideology” trumps “pragmatism.”

Roughly 2.5% of all prison inmates are raped (Not counting repeat of fences). We have 2.4 million in federal and state facilities. Will he also take “full responsibility” of the AIDS cases that will be caused by this decision. Or will this be another BP crisis where he wants to take the credit when it looks politically advantageous but then backs out and lets others take the fall or do the talking when it gets ugly?

Mix these two populations and you are sentencing people to death!

Common sense truly is dead. I can't imagine an inmate with AIDS not wanting a special ward where they can receive treatment. I can't imagine a general population prisoner wanting to be mixed in with an AIDS prisoner. Prisoners do get raped and so someone could go to jail for theft or forgery and end up with a death sentence. Professor Obama does what is theoretically correct under his PC zealotry and the country suffers with deadly consequences.

Is apparently to keep prisoners who have AIDS from getting their feelings hurt.

In other words, too bad for all those normal Whiteys who don’t take drugs or do abnormal sex. They’re gonna have to get the same disease as the people who got the disease through their dangerous practices.
We have to be fair here! All that “oppression” has to be paid back.

A very high one: Around 35%.

There’s another way to look at it: Roughly 1 in 9 adult black males end up spending at least some time between bars. That make’s obama’s actions here a literal potential death sentence for 1 in 9 black males. The term for that is “decimation of a population.” Another is “attempted genocide.”

This needs to be publicized in the black community. It’s unbelievable, but obama is literally putting at risk over 10% of the entire black male adult population. It’s something a genocidal klansman might come up with. Seriously. It really does qualify as a crime against humanity.

If you knew nothing about him and just olooked at his works, you would have to believe he WANTS to destroy this country.

How else can EVERY SINGLE DECISION be the wrong one?

If he was merely stupid, he would be RIGHT some of the time.

Glenn Beck could just be right about Cloward-Piven strategy

Liberals want everyone to have the same income, home, car and now diseases. Equality for all!

What’s next? Mixing aids-infected blood with normal blood so all have an equal chance at getting the disease?

(Obviously none of this applies to the liberal elite (Nomenklatura) which has more money and better treatment than ordinary hard-working slobs.

This just further confirms my belief that he has no concern for black America. They wrongfully believe they elected “one of them.” That couldn’t be further from the truth. Even if it is shouted from the rooftops, no one will believe the truth. All they see is the color of his skin, not the fact that he has no soul within him.

The integration of AIDS prisoners with the general population is frightening. I can only imagine the reaction of the prison wardens upon hearing this.

Indeed a quarantine was needed. Not so sure how “manageable” AIDS would’ve been since I’ve seen estimates that 250,000 were already infected by the time they even KNEW that something was going on (circa 1981). As promiscuous as homosexuals were/are, it still would have been out of control, but not nearly to the extent it is today worldwide.

When I was a teenager in Tampa there was a TB ‘Sanitorium’ not far away. Surrounded with barbed wire. Staying was not optional, you had it, you went there. They saw to it you took the treatment.

My how times have changed.

"This needs to be publicized in the black community."

You're kidding, right? If abortion-as-genocide didn't resonate with African-Americans (13% pop., 33% all abortions, total pop. reduced 25% since Roe), nothing will.

Wow, you kind of destroyed my attempted point with that one. As in annihilated it. Seriously. Almost ZOTTED it.

I wasn’t kidding. I was suffering from a lack of realism. If wiping out 25% of a population doesn’t wake them up, then putting another 10% or so at risk of a horrible death certainly won’t.

What a nightmare.
