Gay Columnist Celebrates New Travel Plans

For the first time in 25 years, people diagnosed as HIV+ are no longer restricted by a travel ban. Columnist Andrew Sullivan writes:

I'm not exaggerating when I say that it's one of the happiest days of my whole life. For two and a half decades, I have longed to be a citizen of the country I love and have made my home. I now can. There is no greater feeling… I've lived with this awful sense of insecurity, of fear of leaving the country, of visiting my family, of the lingering sense that my virus rendered me potentially deportable, that any roots I put down might be dug up suddenly one day - for fifteen years. The lifting of this threat - the sense that I now have a home I know will be secure for me and my husband - is indescribable.
Compared to those who unnecessarily suffered and died from what turns out to be nothing more than a political disease, Sullivan got off easy. He thanks Republicans and Democrats alike - including (gasp!) George Bush.

But being politically correct, he was careful not to question the theology that has funded fake research and gay activism at the expense of his own civil rights since 1981.

Conceived by corrupt scientists (who faced unemployment) and gay activists (who didn't want to admit that their symptoms were related to promiscuity and drug abuse), HIV provided cover for both. Activists pressured politicians for funding and, in return, Robert Gallo blamed the consequences of their behavior on a harmless retrovirus. (more here)

Pharmaceutical marketers like AIDSTruth and AIDSMap continue to pressure politicians who refuse to accept the propaganda. As one expert explained:

"The chief function of propaganda is to convince the masses, whose slowness of understanding needs to be given time so they may absorb information; and only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on their mind."
The lifting of travel restrictions is a first step toward the unraveling of a lie. Sullivan doesn't question the deadly drug treatments or the $billions that have been wasted on activism and research. He doesn't ask why Congress sent $48 billion to Africa's corrupt politicians or why taxpayers continue to dump three quarters of all medical research into a political disease that has never medically identified as a leading cause of death in the US or Africa (as recently as 2006).

Like a cancer survivor who celebrates a Happy Meal, Sullivan's travel plans have somehow eclipsed the admission by Nobel Laureate and HIV co-discoverer Luc Montagnier that HIV can be cured with a nutritious diet.

Nor does Sullivan mention the civil rights of Philippe Padieu, who expects to spend the next 40 years in prison for behaving like Bill Clinton. Why are Sullivan's travel plans more important than Willie Campbell, who will unnecessarily spend the rest of his life in prison for spitting on a cop?

If HIV is as dangerous as the pharmaceutical industry wants us to believe it is, how can we allow people like Sullivan, who is allegedly infected with a disease that supposedly kills 900 persons a day in South Africa, to sit in buses and airplanes next to our friends and family? If the hysteria that led to travel restrictions has unraveled, why should a lothario and homeless man remain in prison? Is Sullivan's celebration about human rights or a trip to Piccadilly Circus?"

This is just a glimpse of the bizarre political pseudoscience called HIV. No wonder they hate me.
