Alex Jones: Spreading HIV Is Part of Gay Culture

In a recent entry in his string of unhinged rants, right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has targeted gay men, especially those with HIV, claiming that transmitting the virus “is a culture now in the gay community.”

Jones made the remark in Sunday’s edition of The Alex Jones Show, echoing unsubstantiated reports of “bug chasing” and “gift giving” — trying deliberately to acquire or transmit HIV — that have been circulating for a couple of decades.

The occasion for Jones’s rant was a new California law that reduces the penalty for knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV, without disclosure, from a felony to a misdemeanor. The measure, signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown Friday, was supported by legislators and public health experts who pointed out that new treatment and prevention strategies have greatly lowered the possibility of HIV transmission — which does not necessarily occur with exposure — and that the previous law discouraged people from being tested for HIV.

HIV was the only communicable disease for which exposure was a felony in California, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Jones was obviously having none of that. “I want to get into the psychology of the insane Democratic Party here, because when HIV goes from lowered numbers like it is to exploding in the next five years, in a few years, if we’re still here, as a planet, don’t have nuclear war, I will go back to this show and say here I am in 2017 saying within three to five years California will have a 200 percent increase in HIV,” he said in a clip excerpted by watchdog group Media Matters(watch below).
