Actually, black people are about 60 times more likely than whites to be hiv+ or have AIDS.

HIV is primarily a black disease in the USA, not a gay disease.

And the majority of people who are hiv+ are str8, not gay.

Shouldn't black people be banned from the military according to that logic ?

Most people with AIDS are straight, black women. This gays in the military causing more AIDS thing is just another scare tactic from bigoted conservatives.

Yes, everything this man said is provable false. What is not deniable, however, is that allowing Gunny Bob Newman to serve on the radio increases stupidity among a segment of the populace already seriously IQ challenged.

This is just stupid. AIDS and HIV are not gay diseases anyone can get them. There is just as much a chance of someone getting infected on the battlefield seeing as AIDS does discriminate. Not too mention the moronic view of if we repeal DADT then all the gays will be joining up and we will have one big gay army. DO they actually think repealing it will have any effect? Of course not he's a bigot playing to his conservative audience.

Nevermind that having HIV would not only disqualify service members from active duty, but disqualify anyone who signs up. Also nevermind that gays already do serve in the military so what difference does it make if they serve openly?

Not entirely accurate. According to CDC statistics, gay men and black women have almost the same rate of infection with gay men just a little ahead....may not like that statistic, but shouldn't keep anyone from dicussing the numbers accruatly.

Gunny Newman hasn't been in the military either.

If he had ever been in the military, he would know that every soldier goes through an intensive medical examination when entering the military. If someone had AIDS, or anything else that can't be killed with a shot, a pill, or a spray, their military career would end before it started.

Mr. Newman is scare-mongering for hate-radio dollars.

Actually, not entirely true. A soldier who gets infected with HIV is not automatically discharged. They can be retained... but they are non-deployable and have to tell everyone they work with that they have HIV. They may not be eligible for reenlistment and a good chunk of them may get discharged. Yet, some don't.
We actually had a med dorm on my first base that housed a few people who were known to have HIV.

First of all your statement is completely false, so false in fact I need not give any proof because the TRUE numbers speak for themselves and can be found from many reputable sources.

But what gets me with the gays blatant narcissism is if somebody say gays do such and such bad, gays say no blacks are actually worse. Then if someone is not feeling or agreeing with gays idea of their "civil rights" then it's MLK fought for all of us, Coretta King wanted gays to marry so of course MLK did too.
Deceitfully trying to garner sympathy off the past to present struggles of blacks and the nations remorse for that past, but at the same time cutting blacks off at the knees when you feel appropriate..........truly a sick evil way to gain your so called rights.

It is a wise man who learns from the successes of past campaigns. This is why we use the techniques taught to us by the racial equality movement of the 50s; tried and true.

We are also adopting some of the successful tactics learned from the womans' suffrage movement of the 20s. The idea for our new same-sex marriage flag was borne of womans' suffrage

What you have considered "wise" I consider deceit. That deceit has lead to a YES ON 8 4 LIFE! vote from the very people you "wisely" call yourself borrowing from.

I see nothing "wise", all I do see is foolishness, narcissism and perpetual judicial and voter defeats.

My skin could be hated for an eternity, I could care less, just RESPECT black peoples rights(freedom etc) or get dealt with and it's always been that way with Blacks in modern times.

Notice I said voter and judicial defeats. Meaning when the vote is not enough here comes the judicial courts slapping gays clean across their face as DOMA and many other court appointed laws against your kind have done..........But "Keep the dream alive I guess".

Oh no, I wasn't saying they are universally discharged, just that yes, they are no longer deployable.
