Huckabee wanted to isolate AIDS patientsby Jason Pye
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.
