Adolf Reagan

Ouch! Writer and GMHC founder, Larry Kramer, compares Ronald Reagan to Adolf Hitler. Kramer quite rightly points out that shameful Reagan policies allowed thousands of Americans to die of AIDS before he uttered a single word about the disease.

After a week of media butt kissing it is truly refreshing to hear someone fearlessly tell the truth about this man. Democracy Now has also done a terrific job of reminding us that Reagan gave aid and comfort to Saddam Hussein's WMD program, to the mujahadeen (read Bin Laden) in Afghanistan, increased homelessness and nearly destroyed the labor movement.
