It’s the same old story, same old song and dance, my friend

I’m old enough to remember the AIDS Epidemic’s beginning.

When it started out there was a full court press by the left and many elites to make sure this disease was not identified with Gay sex.

This was despite the fact that the primary spread of this disease was through gay and bisexual men.

Now the easiest way to stop this disease was of course for

  1. Gay Men not to have gay sex with strangers and multiple partners
  2. Women to not have sex with bisexual men who had multiple partners.
  3. For people of either sex or any sexual orientation not to sell or purchase sex from people
  4. For people of either sex or any sexual orientation to practice monogamy

But of course for the future customers of Jeffrey Epstein’s in government and entertainment and academia this option white effective would not and could not be advanced as it was too close to the Commandments of God and the teaching of Christianity so instead a wise program of

  • Encouraging Gay men, the primary target of the disease to avoid dangerous sexual contacts
  • Promoting monogamy among adults and abstinence among youth to avoid crossover infections
  • Spending money on research to find a way to control or eradicate said disease

This would have saved lives but would not have served the cultural desires of the Hollywood, Academic and Washington elites so instead we had a program of

  • Attacking anyone who suggested that promiscuous gay sex was the primary spreader of the disease
  • Promoting the idea that this disease was a major threat to the general population when it was not
  • Encouraging the use of condoms as a solution to the problem
  • Spending money on research to find a way to control or eradicate said disease

It’s worth noting that it was during this time that the religious began to drift toward the GOP and started to became unwelcome in Democrat circles who began to embrace the Gay agenda bigtime.

Treatments were eventually discovered which meant that AIDS is no longer an automatic death sentence, It’s still a disease that spreads through sexual contact with someone infected that can screw you and your immune system up very badly for the rest of your life but your odds are surviving are pretty high.

Which brings us to the Monkey Pox scare and this from NBC

“Even as Covid-19 restrictions have loosened, for many gay men, an uninvited guest called monkey pox has threatened to spoil long-anticipated festivities.

“Of the 6,924 confirmed monkey pox cases in the global outbreak, the vast majority have occurred among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, or MSM, various health authorities report. Skin-to-skin contact during sex, experts assert, has likely been the primary driver of the virus’s global spread thus far.”

Via Don Surber who like myself is old enough to remember AIDS but was in the newspaper business at the time while I was just getting out of college, he writes:

Here we go again.

It is AIDS 2.0.

Shut the bathhouses down.

Do NOT shut the economy down.

Do NOT require everyone get a vaccine.

Do NOT frighten children by saying anyone can get it.

Now this is solid advice but if the AIDS epidemic was the start of the Democrat’s move toward the Gay agenda today the party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the LGBTQ+-etc etc etc crowd and the odds of this advice being taken by a party that has gone full groomer (it would have been unimaginable that the Democrat party would have embraced drag queen story time in 1987 or even 2007 for that matter) are slightly less than the Red Sox firing Alex Cora and replacing him with me as their interim manager for a few weeks

However we are also in an era where the gatekeepers of the press can be completely bypassed so the odds of Democrats selling shutting down the economy and pushing this as a big public health issue for all is likely pretty small too.

The wild card? If the idea of discouraging anonymous gay sex was not an option of choice in 1987 for the elites any such suggestion today will likely get you banned from social media, labeled a Nazi, a bigot and any other epithet they can come up with at best or the target of physical violence at worse.

As a general rule those who fail to learn the mistakes of the past are destined to repeat them, we will find out shortly. I don’t have high hopes.

On the plus side if we don’t learn our lesson Berke Breathed will be able to rerun this Sunday Strip on Feb 11th 2023 and take a day off.
