Bernie Sternly Scolds Hillary for... Honoring Nancy Reagan?
This perfectly exemplifies just how far the left has gone. They've angrily forced Hillary Clinton to apologize for honoring Nancy Reagan's “very effective, low key advocacy about the HIV/AIDS epidemic when nobody would talk about it.” When a tweet wasn't enough, she had to apologize in long form.
“I'm glad she apologized,” Sanders said on Sunday. “But the truth is, it was not President Reagan and Nancy Reagan who were leaders in talking about this issue, quite the contrary. They refused to allow that discussion to take place. They didn't get involved in it while so many fellow Americans were getting sick and dying.”
So here we are. The left can't even tolerate one of their own rank-and-file members offering even the slightest of praise to their political opposition. I'm sure that Hillary thought with the death of an American icon, a small compliment toward Nancy Reagan would be seen benign enough. Wrong. When a Republican dies, leftists circle like buzzards looking to pick the corpse apart. Apparently Hillary didn't get the memo.
A few things here. NO ONE has done more to combat the AIDS epidemic than George W. Bush. Only that doesn't count because it was in Africa where it actually is an epidemic. Also, because he's George W. Bush.
Plus, in the United States there was no epidemic. There was never an "AIDS epidemic" in the United States of America. Period. It's an entirely preventable disease that affects a very small portion of the American population. I know, I know, it's horrendously offensive for me to say so. You know what's even more offensive? The CDC stats below.
Not only have those in the gaystapo community tried to suppress this evidence, but they even fight "disclosure laws" as "discriminatory." Meaning that if you have AIDS, the LGBTQAAIP (not a joke, real acronym) community believes that you have the right to NOT DISCLOSE your disease to your sexual partner. Why? Because it would be "marginalizing and anti-gay." No, I'm not making this up. Watch my interview below with a gay, HIV survivor who discusses just that...
