The Americans For Prosperity conference held this past weekend in the Wisconsin Dells drew all manner of conservatives, and among those in attendance was Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terrence Wall, as well as Christopher Monckton, the third Viscount Monckton of Brenchely and noted climate change denier, who also happens to be a frequent speaker at Americans for Prosperity Tea Party events.
Terrence Wall is clearly a big fan of Monckton; after all, if he weren’t a fan, he wouldn’t have had his picture taken with Lord Monckton, only to then happily Tweet the picture to his followers on Twitter. But here’s what I’m wondering – is Terrence Wall also a fan of Monckton’s position on AIDS patients? After all, in a 1987 article for the American Spectator titled the The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS, Monckton wrote:
…. there is only one way to stop AIDS. That is to screen the entire population regularly and to quarantine all carriers of the disease for life. Every member of the population should be blood-tested every month … all those found to be infected with the virus, even if only as carriers, should be isolated compulsorily, immediately, and permanently.
Monckton has renewed his support for quarantining AIDS patients as recently as 2009, so what I’m left to wonder is whether Terrence Wall agrees with Christopher Monckton’s belief that AIDS patients ought to be quarantined from the rest of the population.
