Today’s National Post (which I’m not linking to, for reasons that will be obvious to those who’ve read it; also I don’t link to NatPo on principle since they caved on the gay-sex-ed ad) includes the following paragraph, the details of which are familiar to longtime free speechers in Canada:
In his shocking acquittal of Mr. Lemire in 2008, Canadian Human Rights Tribunal member Athanasios Hadjis found he violated Section 13 in a single instance out of many alleged, by posting an article called “AIDS Secrets,” written by an American neo-Nazi, which called HIV “the only virus that has ‘civil rights,’ and claimed that “innocents must die, so that the sick sex games of the pervert minority can continue.” It urged people to avoid all contact with homosexuals and other minority groups.
Yesterday, I found a good article at the sober and respectable Mercator news site.
Here’s the part that struck me, and that I was planning to post today anyhow, even before I read the NatPo article this morning:
How many more lives, how many billions of dollars, will be sacrificed to western sexual ideology?
The truth is that there can never be enough billions to “end” an epidemic driven by the sexual ideology of the same parties — or their partners — that are supposed to be curing it. This was rather sharply illustrated a couple of months ago with the publication of evidence linking the widespread use of progestin injections as birth control with HIV transmission in sub-Saharan Africa. But even without such a direct channel, the “sex positive” approach of the family planning networks in developing countries guarantees that the behaviour basically responsible for disease — having multiple sex partners — does not change.
Edward Green, the Harvard researcher, who stumbled upon Uganda’s secret in 1993 has been trying ever since to get recognition for behavior change as the most effective means of dealing with the AIDS epidemic. In his recent book, Broken Promises: How the AIDS Establishment has Betrayed the Developing World (2011), he recounts how, at an AIDS conference in Washington in 2004 his presentation received muted applause. But, when a female college student came to the microphone and exclaimed, “I think people should be able to have as much sex as they want, with as many people as they want,” she received a thunderous, standing ovation.
That is what the people of Africa and elsewhere are up against: not only a deadly disease but an international community that has such an investment in its own doctrines about sex and population that it will use all its political and economic power to impose them where they are most destructive. Already in Africa alone more than 46 million people have been infected with HIV and 18 million have died.
Obviously, the folks at Mercator would never advocate “having nothing to do with” certain groups.
(I don’t know if that’s really what the “Neo-Nazi” wrote either because of course the original posting was deemed “hate speech” so I can’t read it any more.)
a) Who cares?
b) What is the difference between one and the other?
