How ‘We All’ Came to ‘Have AIDS’: Rock Hudson’s False ‘Legacy’

OMSJ presents a fascinating re-look at what was hidden by a rush to market a disease:

Thirty years ago this spring, actor Rock Hudson tested “positive” on the new “HIV test.”  A year and a half later, he was dead of so-called “AIDS” after sensational media reports set off a sexual panic.  We look at the more likely causes of death – and why those causes matter.

rock-hudsonIt was the world’s most famous case of “AIDS.”  In June 1984, actor Rock Hudson, the good-looking, crew-cut symbol of perfect American manhood, received his diagnosis of the new syndrome, based on a “positive” result on a test that had been on the market for less than two months.

The hype around Hudson’s illness and death turned AIDS into a general “epidemic” from an affliction among a subset of gay men.  But we find other, more likely, causes for Hudson’s death.  The idea that AIDS could happen to anyone, accordingly, rests on a lie.

In the official biography he commissioned while wasting away, this famous yet very private man wrote, “I want the truth to be told, because it sure as hell hasn’t been told before.”  The media indeed didn’t tell the truth, in the rush to enroll us all in a sexual hysteria.

In another troubling precedent, a claimed Hudson lover filed the first lawsuit for “intentional infliction of emotional distress.”  Since then, we’ve seen widespread legal system abuse against alleged “HIV positives” based on a questionable medical diagnosis.  And we note the only token objections from AIDS organizations, which stand to gain from the hysteria as more otherwise healthy people seek “HIV tests.”  (This propaganda tactic later became known as the “Magic Effect.”)
