Elizabeth Dole Says "Fuck You" To Americans Who Died From AIDS

This is unbelievable. Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) wants to rename the the current AIDS relief bill after Jesse Helms.

SA 5074. Mrs. DOLE submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by her to the bill S. 2731, to authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2009 through 2013 to provide assistance to foreign countries to combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows: On page 1, line 5, strike "and Henry J. Hyde" and insert ", Henry J. Hyde, and Jesse Helms".

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1987 described AIDS prevention literature as "so obscene, so revolting, I may throw up."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1988 vigorously opposed the Kennedy-Hatch AIDS research bill, saying, "There is not one single case of AIDS in this country that cannot be traced in origin to sodomy."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 1995 said (in opposition to refunding the Ryan White Act) that the government should spend less on people with AIDS because they got sick due to their "deliberate, disgusting, revolting conduct."

Jesse Helms, the man who in 2002 announced that he'd changed his mind about AIDS funding for Africa, but not for American gays, because homosexuality "is the primary cause of the doubling and redoubling of AIDS cases in the United States."

Many people hold Ronald Reagan responsible for adding to the early AIDS death toll by his inaction on the pandemic, but it was Helms' actions in thwarting early research that inarguably hastened the demise of many thousands of Americans. How many of my friends, of your friends, would be alive today if the life-saving medications had arrived just one fucking year earlier?

Fuck YOU, Senator Dole. Fuck you with something hard and sandpapery.

I ran into Lizzie Dole once in Cary, NC when she first ran for the senate.  The woman's hair simply DOES NOT MOVE.  It was a really windy day and we were at some well-known local ice cream place but it has no indoor seating, and she stood there with some supporters and you could see that she must use an entire can of hairspray each day.  It was like a helmut.

What's worse is that this was in 2002, and that hairstyle was already dated 15 years (at least outside of the South).

I just blogged about this as well:

"I think the bill, which provides $50 billion over five years for AIDS relief overseas, should instead be renamed the Let-The-Fags-Die-But-Save-Some-Babies-In-Africa-So-I-Can-Still-Go-To-Heaven Bill.  That would honor Jesse Helms just fine."

Peter,
Maybe you could post the link to your blog and the justly proposed new name  ;) in the comment section of her feedback page (the one I provided above).  Hell, maybe I'll just send the link to this thread to her!

When I heard about this yesterday I could feel my blood boiling. Just when I think I can't be shocked anymore we get tools like Liddy Dole doling out shit like this.

Disgusting. The attempt, the Southern Republican gesture -- what it's meant to embody, symbolize, make permanent. Disgusting.
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

"Why don't you do something to help with the hiv/aids epidemic.  I am not gay!  I didn't use drugs.  I simply got it from my husband who didn't know he had it at the time.  I come from a good catholic family.  You know there are good people out there who deserve to live.  And even the others who are gay or drug users.  It still doesn't mean they deserve to die.  I hope you have more of a heart then what people are saying.  And remember this disease is moving faster then people think.  Think of all the new born babies who are being born to this.  Do they deserve to suffer? NO!  No one does.  You have power to make a change for not only our country's future but for the world!"

With friends like this who needs enemies? 

Shadoos, while the gesture of contacting Sen Dole is good, you should realize that gay, straight, drug users, etc who are HIV+ all have a virus.  Separating the "good" ones from the gay and drug users is inappropriate and only adds to the stigma of HIV.

From today's Front Page of the Charlotte Observer:


Sen. Dole attempts to name AIDS bill after Jesse Helms
Critics were outraged over the failed effort aimed at the global $48 billion measure to battle AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
By Lisa Zagaroli
McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON --Former Sen. Jesse Helms might have changed his mind when it came to AIDS policy, but his softened stance wasn't far enough to keep activists from crying foul when his successor tried to name an AIDS relief bill after him.

...A spokesman for the Global AIDS Alliance said Dole's amendment was inappropriate.

There are aspects of his legacy that are very negative when it comes to HIV prevention, David Bryden said. It is true that Helms toward the very end of his career started to show more compassion, particularly toward mothers and children affected by this disease. But we're still dealing with a legacy of Sen. Helms when it comes to the HIV epidemic amongst injecting drug users.

...We are still dealing with provisions in the law that came from Jesse Helms that really hamstring our efforts to reach that population, he said.

...When Helms died earlier this month, Bono left a voice mail for John Dodd, director of the Jesse Helms Center in Wingate, saying, There are 2million people alive in Africa today because Jesse Helms did the right thing.

Still, in the same Chronicle article, Helms didn't soften his stance about fighting AIDS at home among people who acquired the infection through homosexual activity.

I don't have any idea on changing my views on that kind of activity, which is the primary cause of the doubling and redoubling of AIDS cases in the United States, Helms said.



BTW the Front Page of the Observer featured a picture of Dole with the article, the online version picture seems to be placed there to impress those who don't know better that Jesse was a good guy who worked in favor of people with HIV and AIDS.   The slideshow however really seems to give better insight if one cares to look through it.  I was struck that the one image of the children holding Jesse Helms signs was eerily reminiscent of Fred Phelps kind of tactics.

Peter- (from the third or fourth post above)

I wrote an email to Dole recommending she change the entire name (sorry for the plagairism) to not just add Jesse Helms but to change it to "Let-the-fags-die...". Haddo do it. The shock value alone will make her hair move - maybe.

OMG That was too funny.

Ok... I decided to amuse myself so I played with Mrs. Dole a little.

Warning I can not guarantee you wont be offended if you click the link below. But it amused me.
So if your easily offended or really really like Elizabeth Dole don't click this link.

I think it is likely she is just ignorant to the facts about Jesse Helms and our communities problems with him.

Ignorant?

This is the Wikipedia intro to the entry on her:

"Mary Elizabeth Hanford "Liddy" Dole (born July 29, 1936) is an American politician who served in both the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush presidential administrations, and currently serves as a United States senator from North Carolina. She was elected to the Senate in 2002 for a term ending in 2009 and is the first female senator for North Carolina.

"She is a member of the Republican Party and former chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. She is married to former U.S. Senate Majority Leader and 1996 Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole."

If she is ignorant about Helms and his noxious legacy after that biography and background, then she's a total fool (which she isn't).

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

If nothing else, this shows that she has a macabre sense of humor, not to mention chutzpah.

I echo BT's harsh words.  That bitch IS a cunt (pardonnez-moi).

Win, I dig the funky back-beat in your video.

OMG, how can one be so ignorant.  I am pissed.  >:(

i agree with y'all,
but there's an evil side of me, too, that laughs at the thought of his name forever attached to a bill that might (hopefully) cause him great eternal distress and unrest,
if i believed in such a thing,
not unlike the alternate meaning of "Santorum".

You know, I have read the entire thread again and it harkens back to the days of ACT UP way back in the fashionable (lol) 90's when Joan Collins and Linda Evans were mired in muck in the lily pond ("YOU BITCH!!!")...all this anger was channeled into action. I protested way back when even though I was neg. (till 2001) because all my friends were dying or dead...and I was angry as hell. Granted, I may have not brought my enire passion to "the cause' because I was Affected and not INfected at the time, but I did what I knew I could.

I believe it's time to channel all this anger from talk to action. Any ideas? Something along the lines of a condom over Helms house (*titter*) but directed at Hole....I mean Dole...is not only called for, but I believe, it's a neccessity. She KNOWS what the fuck she's doing for whatever her sick, twisted reason is and she needs to know we will not let this one fly by without consequenses.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm tired after a long weekend - all that comes to mind is to flood her email with bullshit that will have her own staffers wanting to walk out on her but that's just too lame...I'm open to peaceful civil-disobiedience suggestion type things.

Let's get the bitch!

I agree maybe there is an after life. Name the bill after him. He might be watching and will be furious! While at it start a rumor that he fathered a black child out of wedlock.

Oops I'm sorry another dead southern congressman already did that :-)

OK...so it's a new day and I posted last night (see above) and I'm still a bit foggy today (four hours sleep makes me draggy ass) --- anyone been thinking about and civil disobedience or actions we can take to let Hole (damn...sorry...mean Dole) get the point???

Really anxious to keep this idea alive and short on brain cells today so if anyone has some good suggestions (i.e. somehow getting to her estate in NC and putting posters all over her front lawn saying "I love gay people with AIDS" or "Jesse Helms really WAS a bigot!" (OK, I'm still draggy ass!)...I'm open for ideas!

Peace,
Paul

In related renaming news:

George H.W. Bush sewage plant renaming qualifies for November ballot
http://sfist.com/2008/07/17/breaking_news_george_w_bush_sewage.php

Some of you have probably read about this already. Folks in San Francisco want to rename a sewage treatment plant after our erstwhile president. Kinda funny in a way...but ultimately a misnomer and a waste of new sinage on the building. After all, nice stuff comes out of a sewage plant.

[travel has finally subsided a bit, maybe I can get back into reading and participating here. Missed you all!]
