Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp keeps mentioning failed AIDS vaccine mandates. But there is no AIDS vaccine

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, keeps mentioning the failed campaign to vaccinate Americans against the AIDS virus as an example of the pitfalls of healthcare mandates.

Except the AIDS vaccine doesn't exist. And there sure wasn't a failed campaign to mandate it.

He made the comments most recently on an episode of the right-wing commentator Erick Erickson's podcast, emphasizing that as a result of his knowledge of the nonexistent AIDS vaccine, he believes that education is a more effective tool than mandates.

...

When reached for comment by the station, Kemp's office said he meant to mention the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine. But even this statement raises eyebrows — the HPV vaccine is also mandated in a number of states to attend public schools (among other inoculations), a campaign that has been largely effective in getting school-age children vaccinated, 11 Alive reported.

GQP prefers lies that confirm their crazy beliefs.
And Kemp's staff's excuse that he meant HPV rather than AIDS is just another lie.

The Republican reality in the 21st century:
if you say something demonstrably false, just deny that you ever said it.
if you lose an election, just claim that it had to be election fraud.

Until the sane portion of the American voting population shows the Trump/GOP
that they will lose their political position if they keep pandering to insanity,
then expect a non stop continuation of this insanity.

( I think it's a good thing to have at least 2 political party's, the checks
and balances thing. But I will vote against every Republican until I see
them toss Trump and his "ideology" to the curb. they are a clear and present
danger to America )

The attempted recall of Newsom in CA was interesting in that respect.

Yes, it was CA, and thus can be dismissed by those who wish to think it, but Newsom took the GOP lies head on- and won convincingly

That was good to see. Hopefully all of us anti Trumpers stay motivated for as long as
it takes to defeat them. They've done a masterful job of gerrymandering the
country, so it's going to be tough.

Woo hoo!

What's next, Alabama bragging about a Republican Win.

The true arrogant dismissers lost 2000 and 2016 - all because of dismissiveness.

Now, their dismissiveness is losing the Climate, and the World.

Kemp is not the sharpest tool in the toolbox, not the brightest color in the crayon box, maybe a few bricks shy of a full load...you get the idea.

He's the guy who beat valedictorian Stacey Abrams, who then went on to "graduate(d) from Spelman “magna cum laude” with a B.A. in interdisciplinary studies (political science, economics, and sociology) and was named a Harry S. Truman Scholar; the scholarship is awarded to a few public-service oriented students every year. Abrams’s education did not stop with her B.A. She received a Master’s Degree from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin, and a J.D. from Yale University....Abrams credits the public school system with “saving” her and her siblings. Her siblings include a professor of anthropology, federal judge, evolutionary biologist, and a social worker, and the family remains close and the siblings have a book club that meets regularly via conference call.
