The WHO has finally admitted to what many of us have known or suspected for years: that they have been exaggerating the AIDS numbers. Why? It’s simple: to scare us into supporting condoms for children and “sex education” at younger and younger ages. It’s for the children, that we must corrupt them, it’s for their own good that we give them a pack of condoms in their homework. And it’s all been due to a big lie, just one of many.
As a matter of fact, the WHO will be revising the numbers down some 40%. That’s quite a readjustment. Oops, we were off by millions, maybe uh er, 7 million or so, but who knows? It’s not an accident, no way. It was done accidentally on purpose. There’s a lot of money to made and a lot of social engineering to be done when liberals whip up the good old reliable hysteria.
This same “chicken little” strategy is being pimped by Al Gore (the Goracle) and his mindless panicky followers who emotionally and tearfully claim that manbearpig, er, global warming, is coming to kill us all, so we have to do something really stupid right now. There’s no time to think. It’s stupidity or death.
But that’s a false choice, right out of the leftist playbook. Actually it’s stupidity or common sense, that’s why they try to rush us to judgement without any actual, you know, evidence. Panic! Hurry! Do something stupid! Ban cars! Redefine marriage! Fornicate with animals! Vote for Clinton! And on and on it goes.
I’ll bet if you put your mind to it, you will find other examples where the hysteria pimps on the left try to scare Americans and rational thinking conservatives into stupid solutions for non-existent problems. I’ll give you a couple of more examples, and then you can add your own in the comment thread.
Smoking and the Secondhand Smoke Boogieman
Oh noes! The second hand smoke fairy is going to KILL YOU DEAD! We better ban all smoking in bars and restaurants and private residences or we’re all going to die! It’s for the children!

Moar Examples of The Hysteria Factor
