Page 1 of 1Posted on Advocate.com January 19, 2011
In his latest antigay rant,Rush Limbaugh suggeststhat the Democratic Party blames the AIDS epidemic on Ronald Reagan because they want people to believe he had the disease and spread it himself through gay sex.
On Monday’s Rush Limbaugh Show, the conservative talk radio host said: “These people blamed AIDS on Reagan. Sound familar? They blamed homelessness on Reagan -- you know why they blamed AIDS on Reagan? Because he didn't care. Because he never delivered a speech about it. And because of that, AIDS was spread. They actually wanted us to believe that Reagan had the disease, was sneaking into gay people's houses at night, and impregnating them with the disease and running out.”
In 2004, while complaining that Reagan had been unfairly attacked for failing to prevent the AIDS epidemic, he said that AIDS activists said it was “only a matter of time before it spreads to the heterosexual community… nd of course it -- it hasn't. It -- it didn't, and it hasn't, other than in Africa.”
He said in Africa, AIDS is spread by promiscuity.
