In a op-ed yesterday attempting to cast doubt on man-made global warming, Washington Times columnist and editor emeritus Wesley Pruden opened with a line stating that the AIDS virus is “the gifts of the gays“:
We were all supposed to be dead now, done in by AIDS, the gift of the gays. After that it was SARS, bequeathed to the world by China. Then it was avian flu, which, to be fair to the alarmists, did in fact result in the deaths of millions. The millions were all chickens, true, but chickens have feelings, too. You could ask the folks at PETA.
As Media Matters has documented, Pruden has a history of writing that heterosexuals having AIDS is a “myth,” even though the U.N. reported that, in 2005, 32 percent of all new AIDS infections in the U.S. were contracted by heterosexuals. (HT: Huffington Post)
