Huckabee wanted to isolate AIDS patients

Tax Hike Mike advocated isolating AIDS patients in a previous campaign:

Mike Huckabee once advocated isolating AIDS patients from the general public, opposed increased federal funding in the search for a cure and said homosexuality could “pose a dangerous public health risk.”

As a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in 1992, Huckabee answered 229 questions submitted to him by The Associated Press. Besides a quarantine, Huckabee suggested that Hollywood celebrities fund AIDS research from their own pockets, rather than federal health agencies.

“If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague,” Huckabee wrote.

Let’s see…Mike Huckabee lobbied to free a convicted rapist who later murdered a woman but now blames , but AIDS patients and homosexuals…they are the real threat in his eyes.

I am anxiously awaiting for Andrew Sullivan (a conservative, a homosexual and an AIDS patient) to chime in with his opinion.

    Is Huckabee really going to be the nominee? Has the GOP fallen so far?

    I hate Fuckabee. His vision for the country reminds me of that line from Escape from LA:

    “The United States is a non-smoking nation! No smoking, no drugs, no alcohol, no women – unless you’re married – no foul language, no red meat!”

    He’s a big step in that direction.

    Lol. I forgot, he is the president from Escape from LA. Man, that meme needs to be spread.

  • uhm

    Woke up this morning and saw this on the Drudge Report. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
