Homosexual terrorist goes off the deep end at IU

Posted by Scott Tibbs at 4:30 AM

This one seems obvious - no matter how much you may disagree with a policy, you protest that policy in a non-violent manner. You do not spit on a woman who is simply doing her job or physically restrain her from leaving her booth. Unfortunately, Indiana University professor Uri Horesh engaged in those inexcusable and despicable behaviors when he attempted to "donate" blood, despite knowing that men who have sex with men are prohibited from donating blood by the federal government. (See articles here, here and here.)

First, we need to review some important facts. According to CDC statistics for 41,087 HIV transmissions in 2008, 22,469 infections were from male-to-male sexual contact. This is 54.7% of HIV infections. "Male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use" accounted for another 1,141 HIV transmissions in 2008, according to the CDC. Furthermore, male-to-male sexual contact has accounted for 513,138 of AIDS diagnoses through 2008, or 48% of the 1,063,778 diagnoses tracked by the CDC. Keep in mind that these numbers vastly outpace the percentage of male homosexuals in the population.

The fact of the matter is that in the United States of America, homosexual men are much more likely to be infected with HIV than the general population. In response to this reality, men who have sex with men (MSM) are not allowed to give blood due to concern that they could possibly taint the blood supply. This is a reasonable, mathematically sound policy. Because MSM are a very small percentage of the population, there is no real danger that this policy will increase scarcity of the blood supply.

Some very dim-witted people have whined this policy is no different than a policy forbidding a certain race from donating blood, if members of that race are statistically more likely to have been infected with HIV. But this policy ignores a fundamental reality about AIDS that too many people are desperate to hide - AIDS is a behaviorally spread disease. If you do not engage in the behaviors that put you at risk of contracting AIDS, your risk of infection is virtually zero.

One has to have sympathy for the woman who was assaulted by a self-centered homosexual terrorist. After all, she was only doing her job, as mandated by federal regulations. She did not make the policy and has no authority to change it. But she was berated, spit on and physically prevented from exiting the bloodmobile by a homosexual terrorist who is so obsessed with getting approval of his sex life that it simply did not matter to him that she is a completely innocent party.

Allow me to bottom line this entire controversy, both for homosexual terrorist Uri Horesh and others who are opposed to the policy - some to the extreme that they want the Red Cross banned from the Indiana University campus as long as homosexual men are "discriminated" against by this policy.

IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU!

Giving blood is a sacrificial act where you are literally spilling your blood to help someone else in need, maybe even saving someone's life. This is not the place to make a huge political protest, and you do not have the "right" to donate blood. Donating blood to help someone else is a privilege. This is not about "discrimination" or whether "rights" are being denied - this is about the people who are sick and/or injured and need donated blood. Stop being so selfish and belligerent about it. You are not the center of the universe, so grow up!
