By: Robin Murray-o'hair Re: Tattoos for AIDS Victims FORMER KLANSTER URGES TATTOOS FOR AIDS VICTIMS by Conrad Goeringer How far can they go? Former Ku Klux Klan leader and Presidential candidate David Duke, darling of the far-right religious nationalists, has called for laws which would tattoo AIDS patients in their genital areas with glow-in-the-dark ink. Duke made the statement in an interview with The Advocate magazine; he also suggested that AIDS originated when someone had sex with a monkey in Africa. Duke opposed quarantining AIDS patients, though, because "it is not good for their civil rights, it's not good for the country, and it doesn't make sense." Duke, once the grand wizard of the Louisiana Ku Klux Klan, ran in the 1992 primary race against then-President George Bush for the GOP nomination. He is also a former Louisiana legislator who got 55 percent of the white vote in his run for Governor, but lost. He also founded the National Association for the Advancement of White People. During his presidential bid, Duke was a supporter of prayer in public schools, "returning the country to God"; he was against gay rights and opposed to legalized abortion. He is reportedly contemplating another run for the governorship in Louisiana. * WCE 2.0/2394 * Blasphemy is a victimless crime.
