Skip to comments.AIDS: Thirty Years Later

It announced itself among the young. Five otherwise healthy men in Los Angeles had been stricken by a rare, debilitating form of pneumonia. Baffled doctors reported the news in June of 1981, and, soon after, other scientists revealed a medical mystery of their own: young men with a skin cancer usually found among the elderly.
Within 18 months, the federal government linked the afflictions to a new disease that it named "acquired immune deficiency syndrome," or AIDS. By 1983, when scientists isolated the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as the cause, 1,300 Americans had died most of them under 40. Thirty years on, though, AIDS is increasingly a disease of older people, who make up the fastest-growing segment of the HIV-positive population.

Everyone read, And the Band Played On. Very honest by an author that ended up dying of Aids.
Thanks for the reminder; I’ve been meaning to read this as it’s been recommended as a true depiction of the AIDS debacle.
The easiest way to get AIDS is through anal sex. Which explains it’s prevalence in certain groups.
But the WHO reprts that it’s only a 1 in 100 chance. So it takes some work.
However, the last I heard, AIDS has had no effect on the life expectancy of homosexuals.
They should have been locked up in hospital wards. I was, about that time, with TB. I couldn’t get out, until they finally determined that I was atypical, probably got it from gardening, and was not contagious. 9 months. Lost my apartment, my job, and all my possessions.
They threatened to hit the blood banks and contaminate the blood supply if certain legislation they were against was passed in California.
So now we keep them alive longer with expensive drugs so they can infect more people, all the while not daring to condemn their lifestyle.
Duesberg was right. But there’s too many $$$$ involved to admit the obvious.

And those 5 were patients zero to one, and known as homos practicing unsafe, fag sex. That’s why at major intersections here in L.A, you will find massive billboards for HIV/AIDS tests, especially in Hollywood.
30 billion dollars in research and no cure.
And no significant change in behavior. In fact, they now teach this behavior to CHILDREN!
I did not read the article. My son acquired AIDS about 10 years ago. He was on the “streets” less than a year when, he didn’t acquire HIV+, but full blown AIDS.
He was immediately started on HAART, the high powered drug regimen at tax payer expence.
He will be on those drugs for the rest of his life. He was about 22yrs old. Life expectancy, mid-50’s.
Ten years ago those drugs were costing about $45,000/yr.
Go figure: $45,000/yr; for approx 30yrs at taxpayer expense; for a behavior he has chosen for himself.
Hello Obamacare and preferencial treatment for this segment of society.
He gave up the Gay Lifestyle while he thought he was dying.
Now, knowing the drugs will give him a near normal lifespan, he is lost to us.
Multiply my son by the thousands........
I am still his mother, and I still love my son, but this is reality.
Highly recommend your post because it gets at the heart of the issue.
thanks to the “gay” community we started with one case in the US and now have millions, but hey, they must have gay marriage.
I think you shared this story in another post a while back, but it’s still heart rending. Thanks for sharing again, and for being honest and loving the truth while still loving your son.
Everyone should read “The Gift” a story about young male queers seeking to become infected with the HIV virus as something to take great pride in. This book shows the deep and sickening mental derangement of male homos. Consuming feces during acts of rimming and felching is not normal no matter what hollywood claims.
For the real story:
The Death Panels will deny cancer treatments as "not cost effective", but will not DARE limit access to AIDS treatments, no matter how costly.
Disgusting, ain’t it?
AIDs ?? Thanks Fags you filthy scumbags, brought it in here.
[Obamaite] AIDS has created an industry! Think of the jobs! [Obamaite]
I think homosexuals have always been prone to the same sorts of diseases and syndromes and only a certain increase n prevalence gave them a name. It is like AIDS in Africa. The dread diseases that have plagued Africa since there were humans there are all now defined as AIDS so that we have the EPIDEMIC! on the Dark Continent, but the depopulation that would seem to follow on the supposed prevalence of AIDS there has not happened, not even a little.
