On June 27, a homosexual terrorist assaulted, spit on and physically restrained a Red Cross employee while protesting the federal government's ban on blood donations from men who have sex with men (MSM). This woman was berated, assaulted and prevented from leaving despite the fact that the ban on blood donations from MSM it is not her policy or even her employer's policy, but the federal government's policy. The homosexual terrorist had a copy of Indiana University's nondiscrimination policy, which he apparently believes trumps federal law.
If failed presidential candidate John F. Kerry gets his way, that will change. He and others sent a letter to the Centers for Disease Control urging that the ban on blood donations by MSM be lifted in the name of "fairness" and ending "discrimination" as well as increasing the blood supply for people in need. It is estimated that 50,000 MSM will donate blood if the ban is lifted, which was one of the "arguments" used by Kerry and his cabal.
First, let's get this out of the way. 50,000 is literally nothing in a nation of 300,000,000 people. We are talking about 0.017% of the population, or seventeen one thousandths of one percent. If we are in such desperate need of blood that seventeen one thousandths of one percent of the population makes that much of a difference, then we are truly in trouble. The answer is not to make the blood supply less safe by accepting donations from MSM. The answer is to encourage more eligible people to donate blood.
A typically whiny response to the MSM ban is that other people who engage in risky behaviors are not prohibited from donating blood. The answer to this "unfair" situation is not to make the blood supply less safe by accepting donations from MSM. The answer is to make the blood supply more safe by not accepting donations from other people who have engaged in risky behavior that puts them at risk of disease, such as HIV infection.
At this point, we should again examine statistics from the Centers for Disease Control on HIV infection. Of 41,845 HIV infections tracked by the CDC in 2009, male-to-male sexual contact accounted for 23,846 infections, or 57% of all infections. The critical thing to note here is that homosexuals are about 2% of the population - and that includes lesbians. I did not even include "male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use" in those numbers.
Of the 1,099,161 "cumulative estimated number of AIDS diagnoses" through 2009, the CDC reports that 529,908 of those were the result of male-to-male sexual contact, or 48.2% of all AIDS diagnoses. Male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use accounted for another 77,213 of all AIDS diagnoses, which amounts to another 7% of AIDS diagnoses. Again, male homosexuals are dramatically overrepresented in AIDS and HIV cases in the United States.
But failed presidential candidate John F. Kerry simply does not care about medicine, health, protecting the blood supply or making sure there are enough donations. This is a political effort, nothing more. Kerry is willing to make the blood supply less safe and even sacrifice innocent lives to appease a political constituency.
This controversy again demonstrates that militant homosexual activists and their supporters have absolutely no interest in tolerance. This is about acceptance and approval of same-sex intimacy. Militant homosexual activists are willing to sacrifice the lives of innocent people in order to advance a political agenda, and that is simply evil.
