There’s a lot of bitter angry gay people who are bitter and angry about… well, life… but also bitter and hateful toward Ronald Reagan because he was president at the height of the AIDS epidemic and, according to bitter angry gay people, “didn’t talk about AIDS.” Because Ronald Reagan’s magic words would have cured AIDS, or something.
OK, so if Ronald Reagan was a bad, bad man for not saying the word AIDS until 1985. How bad was Bill Clinton for distributing AIDS-tainted blood for profit.
‘Steve was one of over two thousand Canadians infected with HIV, the AIDS virus,’ Dolly claims. The source was traced to bad blood collected from inmates in Arkansas’ prisons.
Inmates were paid $7 a pint for their blood and ‘Billy’s cronies then sold the prisoners’ blood to some blood brokers for $50 per pint’.
When it was discovered that the blood was tainted, prisons instituted a ‘screening process’ which was merely a ‘screening clerk’ who was selling ‘the right to bleed’ to prisoners.
Infected prisoners continued to sell their blood as long as they bribed the screening clerk. Instead of the $7 fee, some received drugs.
Arkansas prisons were banned from selling blood when government officials learned that the bad blood was coming from the state.
Getting around that ban, dummy corporations were set up in other states to purchase the bad blood and then resell it.
All of that infected blood went to Canada, where between 8,000 and 10,000 people died.
Little Rock journalist Suzi Parker took on Clinton and his role in the tainted blood scandal in an exposé. She quit her investigation when she started receiving threatening phone calls in the middle of the night, writes Dolly.
Call me crazy, but it seems like knowingly distributing AIDS-tainted blood for profit might be somewhat worse than not saying the word “AIDS” in public at some earlier date.
In fairness, the source for this information is a tell-all book from one of Bill Clinton’s former mistresses. However, the Arkansas Blood Scandal was a real thing, and Clinton business and political associates were involved. It would be great if there were some group of people whose job it was to investigate these kind of things and report them impartially to the public.
Even if true, it would never matter to the LGBT Democrat Left. Bill Clinton is a Democrat, and Democrats are “gay allies,” so no criticism, ever.
