Letters to the Editor: Lest we get complacent, please read this

Edward Liberatore from Turtle Creek is not a fan of us homosexuals. Or science.

The shouting down of anyone who doesn’t agree with the left wing’s liberal agenda is nothing new. The radicals have always tried to drown out any reasonable discourse over the decades.

In the midst of the sexual revolution of the ’60s and ’70s, people who tried to warn the public about the dangers of promiscuous sex were shouted down. In his book “Dark Agenda,” David Horowitz writes that “At the height of the ’60s … doctors saw the incidence of amebiasis, a parasitic sexually transmitted disease, increase 50 times in San Francisco, a center of gay life. … By the end of the ’70s, two-thirds of gay men had already contracted hepatitis B.”

Gay reporter, Randy Shilts, Horowitz writes, “described the atmosphere in the liberated zones on the eve of the AIDS outbreak: ‘Gay men were being washed by tide after tide of increasingly serious infections. First it was syphilis and gonorrhea. Gay men made up about 80% of the 70,000 annual patient visits to [San Francisco’s] VD clinics.’ ”

Despite the warnings, the mantra of the radical left was to call out anyone who disagreed with them as being “homophobic” and “Nazis.” This promiscuous lifestyle was even celebrated with parades in major cities.

In 2004, the Centers for Disease Control estimated that between 2000 and 2003, 850,000 to 950,000 people in the U.S. were living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Does anyone see a correlation between then and the political atmosphere of today? It’s the same words with a different tune.

Edward’s time bending leaps in logic are not harmless ignorance. Resistance requires we stay informed.
