What’s your take on this? Do you know about it already?
My take is that it doesn’t matter. I didn’t know about it, but I’d never rested my hat or laurels on the BBC movie. I was trying to help some kids…
Most of them are either locked into the system for life (or dead from drugs), or they’ve semi-escaped into NYC poverty.
There’s nothing more I can add to what I’ve done. It wouldn’t be fighting for them anymore, it would be fighting for some perception of ‘legitimacy’ in the eyes of an establishment that does little but cower and lie, pedal deception, half-truths, fear-monger, etc, as a status quo.
I mean, who cares about this subject – poisonous drugs, orphans used in drug trials – who cares? Who really cares, except the Aids police, the pharma zombies, the gay suicides lining up for their pills and their absolution? Who cares except the multi-million dollar drug deals waiting to happen, to put every poor person in condoms and Nevirapine?
Who cares but them, really? It’s not a populist issue. It only masquerades as one.
I’m not worried about the BBC, and neither should you or anyone else be. The drugs are poisonous, not because the BBC says so, or because “denialists” say so, but because the drug labels say so. The medical journals say so, over and over, because patients who’ve taken them – who were sick and not sick, who were well and not well, who were young and old, infirm and strong, all died of the same reactions – anemia from blood and bone marrow suppression, lipid disorders, organ failure, brutal, bloody chemical-induced rashes – plainly, drug toxicity.
It’s not worth responding to any particular charge, only to say that I stand by my research, without a doubt.
You can pass that on to anyone who has a question.
The second note is the following: The Aids Crusade is really foremost on in the minds of certain people, and it is now considered inexcusable to ask any reasonable questions about this medical paradigm.
I have asked all reasonable questions, and found the thing to be made of wax and paper and string. It – the science, the thinking, the research – is a flimsy as lint, and yet it draws so much support, so much emotional support from so many people for so many reasons.
I am not David, and I cannot slay Goliath. I tried to help some kids who were and are being abused. I did my best. That work is available to be read and reviewed. All I can say is that it happened, and is happening, and will continue to happen. And if the world wants it that way, then that is the way that it will be, until the world wants something different.
I’ve done my best. I’m sorry it didn’t please those in power. Or, I should say, I really could give a shit that it didn’t please those in power. I spoke for and with people who were being abused by a system. I pity those who don’t get out of the hammer’s way. I respect those who fight for individual freedom and liberty.
I was never concerned about the BBC. I didn’t care who made the film. I was trying, very hard, to help some kids. I succeeded, and I failed, mostly because those kids were always dead to this culture. Crack baby children born in the poorest part of New York.
Most of them never had, and never will have a chance. That’s a terrible fact.
That the Aids police think they’re doing “God’s work” by pumping the poor and destitute with chemicals and drugs… well, I’ll let history, or God, be the judge. I’ve done my best, I’ve told the truth, I’ve put it out there for all to see. Take down the BBC film from the archives, and add it to the list of sins we’ve done in the name of colonial oppression, racism, tribalism, eugenics, etc.
Sorry to be dour, but, well, what can you do? I don’t run the BBC, and they certainly don’t want to take a meeting with anyone who tells them anything interesting or rational about “aids” or “sars” or “bird flu.”
Feel free to write the BBC, if you think it will help.
Hell, mail them the HIV test insert, or AZT label, or literature, and see if they can see past their fears to even imagine that the people pestering them to shut up their reporting, are not necessarily on the side of the people they want to drug, without permission, mercy or reprieve.
See what they say. I personally doubt it will sink it. I don’t know why, but the world is very content at present with branding the poorest people in the world with the “Aids” label. We’ll see what the future brings.
Bests to all,
PS. I suppose it does show one thing – what a small group of like-minded individuals can do, if they really put their minds and wallets to shutting up discourse, dissent, reportage, and uncomfortable truth-telling.
You go, “aidstruth”. Victory for you, I suppose. Better get that Nevirapine to Harlem, fast, before the celebration turns sour.
In reviewing the article, the major complaint does not list actual “errors” in the film – only the lack of euphamistic, Orwellian language to describe skin-peeling, liver-killing, er, I mean, “life-saving” drugs:
* “These included claims that the HIV medicines given to the children were “futile” and “dangerous” and that children were taken from their families because they resisted the “experimental” drugs.”
Well, the NIH was and is enrolling these kids in drug trials. A drug trial isn’t an experiment? (Yes, it is).
* “In its adjudication, the BBC also said that the film-makers falsely tried to “create an association between the [clinical] trials and a loss of parental rights” while it also acknowledged that the film was biased towards the views of HIV “denialists”.
Oh boy. “Denialists.” So, we’re on even, fair ground here.
Clinical trials and loss of parental rights… Well, that happened. That’s from the mouths of the mothers involved. So, what? That’s not acceptable to report? Even though it happened and is happening…why would that be so?
Why – Because it makes the Aids police look like, well, like Mengele, like Nazi doctors, and they really can’t have that. So, they attack, but don’t respond to the charges. Why respond when you can obliterate the complaint from the record?
It’s a lot like the old Soviet Union, killing, or shutting up, the dissident scientists…
