DUMB: While Annoying Celebrities Lecture Us on AIDS, Millions Die of Cancer

By Debbie Schlussel

Yesterday was “World AIDS Day,” and a number of the typically annoying celebrities were up to their usual preachy stupidity.  A number of celebrities, like the Kardashian Sisters–who are famous because one of them, Kim, made a sex tape, they are all sluts, and their mother managed to turn it into an empire–decided to stop tweeting on Twitter until someone donated $1 million to help fight AIDS.  Sadly, the Twitter embargo by these morons only lasted for a day.  If only it could go on forever.  Frankly, the slutty behavior of these skanks is the reason STDs get spread, so they’re hardly the choice for spokespeople on anything (except birth control, which their parents should have practiced).


Then, there’s Ryan Secrest, host of “American Idol” and purveyor of numerous other media projects.  He participated in the ad above, featuring a photo of himself dead.  Some of you might say, “If only . . .”  And I hear ya.  The ad is absurd to begin with.  But it’s doubly silly because AIDS has already had so much resources dedicated to it, that relatively few people die of contracting the HIV virus and ultimately AIDS anymore.  It’s now just an illness with a ton of medications to keep it at bay.  Just ask HIV-infected Magic Johnson, who is now looking to bring an NFL team to Los Angeles.

I’ve said it before on this site, and I’ll say it again:  because moronic celebrities and the mainstream media concentrate on AIDS, an enormously disproportionate share of our resources are put toward researching AIDS and AIDS cures; and as a result other cancers–which kill millions–suffer.  Millions will die in the next decade from lung cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer (which took my dear, late father), prostate cancer, etc.  But none of these illnesses gets the same percentage of resources dedicated to it that are raised for and sent to AIDS research.  AIDS research gets a much higher dollar amount per victim than any of these illnesses.

And yet, unless he’s gay or an intravenous drug user, Ryan Seacrest will not only never die from AIDS, he will never even contract it.  Despite the warnings we constantly got at the beginning of the discovery of GRID (Gay-Related Immuno-Deficiency, the original name for AIDS), AIDS is not and never has been, “everyone’s disease.”  In fact, it’s remained the disease of hookers, promiscuous gays, and druggies.  At the beginning, a few people–like the late tennis player, Arthur Ashe–sadly died of contracting the disease through infected blood transfusions, but that is rare now.

So, next time you see mindless celebrities like the Kardashian skankubines and the host of a bad karaoke show lecturing you about AIDS awareness and money for research, tell them to drink a nice glass of Shut Up Juice.

I’d say, tell them to shut up and act or shut up and sing.  But these people have no definable such talents.  They’re famous for being famous and making a lot of money off of being stupid.


Reader Ari sent this excellent piece from Forbes (by Michael Fumento), which is in wholehearted agreement with me and has the astounding funding figures.  Right on.  Remember this, the next time faux-conservative Laura Ingraham writes another BS op-ed piece in the Washington Post, demanding more funding for AIDS research because her gay brother told her so.

Prostate cancer is the real orphan disease. You never see any ribbons for it.

Fleiter on December 3, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Agreed. They are more cases of prostate cancer as compared to breast cancer yet there is no month dedicated to awareness, there is no ribbon, there is no race, etc.

      The fact that AIDS is still being spread today makes the “gay/straight/bi” stuff irrelevant… what’s spreading it today is pure selfish hedonism. I won’t preach about “immorality” or “unacceptable promiscuous sexual practices” or IV drug use.

      A person who willingly and knowingly engages in the behaviors that can spread AIDS makes a choice in the year 2010… the same choice as those who play Russian Roulette. And if the chamber is loader when you pull the trigger, you get what you get.

      And don’t forget, some African governments refused to accept AIDS medication (for free, that costs others thousands of dollars a month), claiming that the drugs were “poison”, while other governments took the drugs and then sold them on a black market instead of giving them out like they were supposed.

      As Debbie pointed out- who in a Western, civilized nation still gets AIDS “by accident”? I’d like to see some numbers on people who pop up with HIV/AIDS and insist they haven’t engaged in any dangerous behaviors (i.e. wives who get from cheating husbands)…

That whole situation regarding Kim’s sex tape was a farce. It was obvious she intended it to get distributed over the Internet, yet acted surprised and outraged when she found out it was “stolen”.

It must be embarrassing Kim when you release a sex tape and most everyone’s opinion is “meh”.

Oscar on December 3, 2010 at 5:09 pm

AIDS is over-hyped because its politically correct and it has a cachet for being scary.

Its never really been the case and has about the same risk to most of us as climate change does.

My late father died of a bad heart but no one seems interested in funding the cure for the health risks that will really kill us all.

Yeah its dumb and its another good reason why people shouldn’t listen to anything vapid celebrities say and do.

NormanF on December 3, 2010 at 5:11 pm

Debbie, I have been trying to say this for years but I don’t have the magic with words you do. I understand to some gays it is a proud moment when they are told they have GRID. I would rather this money be spent on the illnesses that hit children rather than a illness brought on by ones disgusting actions.
We have sent billiuons to Africa to stop something that cannot be stopped. Gays know the cause yet they proceed and ask us to find a cure. I know what the cure is but I don’t think most folks would want to try my method.

BigArch on December 3, 2010 at 5:14 pm

You’re right if it means don’t sleep around and don’t shoot up drugs. But traditional morality is wasted on those who think you should be able to engage in risky behaviors and then society should save you from the consequences of your own stupidity. I am not the only one who thinks this but I’m glad I won’t be locked away for sounding crazy.

NormanF on December 3, 2010 at 5:19 pm

Anal sex, something Hollywood can believe in.

Bill on December 3, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Their is a Natural cure for cancer if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. It can be cured for fiddy cents a day.
As far as GRID, how come so many have it in Africa? Are their that many Gay Men living in huts and tents?
Also, I would say that bi-sexual men spread it to the hetro population or else how do these women/wife’s get it from their spouses/lovers, when they are not drug users?
I would say that these bi-men lie to themselves and their women partners/family and are worse than the full gays because at least the gays keep the risks to themselves and do not infect innocent hetero women/wifes.

Who cares? on December 3, 2010 at 6:02 pm

Seacrest could die of either cancer or aids and I wouldn’t care either way. Same for Bono and his b.s. I am actually glad that most of Bonos work probably gets piratd on the internet so he has less money to deal on young girls, blow and sappy lib songs. AIDS will continue to garner most of the hollywierd attention because their favorite kinds of people, blacks, criminals, and gays are the ones who mostly catch it.

samurai on December 3, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Hey dummy alot of strait people get AIDS from strait sex.

Mike on December 3, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    @Mike, or michelle, whatever. My comment stands, cowardly keyboard warrior. You’d be the dummy if you ever had the stones to say that to my face. Ahh, the internet. Anybody can say whatever they want to without fear of reprisals within reason. Go back to your freeway rest stop and have your bareback mountain fantasy. Please do not use a condom. Dare

    samurai on December 4, 2010 at 2:11 am

Hey Mike, name 6.

BoKnows on December 3, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Ummm. most of Africa.

Mike on December 3, 2010 at 10:06 pm

I don’t mean to sound heartless, but until the average lifespan of a typical male is equal to that of a typical woman, I’ll pass on any breast cancer, etc. campaign.

GianniV on December 3, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Samurai- say what to your face? a fact? which you didn’t even refute? Nice attempt to insult me, ya big dumb animal.

Mike on December 4, 2010 at 5:08 am

    Mike, mike, mike. You’re statement was inflammatory and ignorant. Africa is a different game than the U.S. They’re not even wearing condoms though the virus has been known to be there and destroying them for, what, 20+ years? Like I said go check out your favorite rest stop. You got a lot of pent up anger. I’m not a dumb animal. I am big and skilled however. The kind of skills a person gets after a life spent defending the less skilled in our society, without much thanks from the people like you I might add. But it’s okay, guys like me get used to it but guys like you are smart enough to do your stone throwing on internet forums, like a lot of the jihadists that are too small and fragile for face to face confrontations and send endless threats to good people like Ms. Schlussel. Or build bombs that kill innocents. Your kind are worse than mine. Go pollute the huffington post.

    samurai on December 4, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Does anyone even remember the OJ Simpson/Robert Kardashian (the skankubine’s father) connection? Robert Kardashian got his law license back so he could DEFEND OJ Simpson. And these people are celebrated? ICK!

M: I remember. And Kardashian reportedly lied and disposed of evidence to protect O.J., too. DS

mominminnesota on December 4, 2010 at 8:38 am

I want celebrities to stay out of charitable causes as well as politics. Anonymous donations would be welcome of course but celebrities should not become the face of a charity. It just lessens the seriousness of that charity.

Olive on December 4, 2010 at 9:57 am

If it was STD only I would agree.
Indeed that campaign is out of proportion when compared with cancer, but bashing those infected is losing touch with reality.
Hooker, gay or drug addicts only?
Which one is Magic Johnson?
Which one was Issac Assimov?
There were and are many more victims of HIV that had nothing to do with above “risky lifestyles”.

Early detected cancer is curable today, depends on cancer type more or less.
Currently the effects of HIV infection can only be delayed.

gr77 on December 4, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Johnson admitted to lots of unprotected sex, and he’s still not the norm here.

samurai on December 4, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Yep, but he believed bullshit that HIV targets only gays, drugs addicts, ect.
Johnson is still hardly an argument in Assimov case.
And there are rape victims also. “They deserved it”? I don’t think so.

gr77 on December 4, 2010 at 7:22 pm

I hardly believe Magic Johnson believed only gays, hookers and druggies get HIV…especially since that time the lie that AIDS was an equal opporunity death sentence was the conventional wisdom.

Read Bill McGowan’s great (but lost in the ether) book “Colouring The News”. He devotes a whole chapter to the great lie.

I agree with DS. I was a HUGE LA Lakers fan and Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar where great heroes of mine. When I heard about MJ’s diagnosis, I was gutted…then I learned how promiscuous he was and was even more gutted. I felt betrayed.

I am no longer angry at him and wish him the best. He slept with so many broads, he must have been infected by one who slept with a bisexual male and/or drug user. So tragic.

I don’t think people turn their nose up at HIV…we just want the lie to stop, responsibility to be taken and some parity as far as funding research.

Skunky on December 4, 2010 at 10:07 pm

It isn’t just the government that is wasting money on AIDS
research. Pharmaceutical companies are also wasting money
On AIDS research.

The pharmaceutical companies know full well that they will
never be able to sustain high enough prices on the
medication if a cure (or a preventative vaccine) is found
to make a profit. The reason for this is that governments
of poor countries where no one can afford the medication
will be under too much pressure from their populations
(even the most repressive regimes) to resist getting the
medication even if they must violate the patent. Then
everyone in the world will get it for almost free.

The pharmaceutical companies are only spending money on
AIDS research to keep Act Up and other activists quiet.

I_AM_ME on December 4, 2010 at 11:33 pm


Women’s reproductive cancers are not only vastly underfunded
in research, but this country has a severe shortage of
gyn oncologists. Malpractice insurance is simply outrageous
for this specialty.

Last year I spent six months dealing with endometrial cancer,
and learned so much about this obscenely ignored issue.
Both Obamacare and the mainstream media refuse to expose
the desperate need for legal reform. Women must be educated
before it is too late!

Kara on December 5, 2010 at 2:45 am

I couldn’t care less about idiots like Johnson. He certainly doesn’t care about people like When he was laughing it up with 3 sluts at a time, I’m sure his mind was preoccupied with thoughts of “I wonder what middle class average guys working overtime to make their bills are doing right now.” Now that he’s spent millions of his health insurance and his own money I’m supposed to worry for him. I don’t worry for the drug users either except for the tax money they soak up. They’re also the ones that are committing the disproportianate crimes against the regular folks out here. They are and continue to be the parasite that helps kill this society. Take all your guilty white selves down to a VA hospital for a good recipient of your feelings.

I’m also so sick of the Kardashians. Talk about idol worshipping scumbags. Omg yahoo just can’t get enough of that porn star. DADDY must be so proud. Actually he probably is.

samurai on December 5, 2010 at 11:02 am

Samurai and Mike get a room already…

I agree with the notion of not really caring about what celebrities think, esp. the more useless ones.

But people are free to push their money towards what problems they want solved. And to push the government towards what problems they want solved.

Pete Bone on December 5, 2010 at 3:37 pm

Peter eater, Your whit is lost in the b.s. you pedal. The only room you get is with upholstery. You’re just another keyboard warrior. Bubye.

samurai on December 6, 2010 at 2:17 am

Skunky, you really have a talent for women bashing… “He slept with so many broads, he must have been infected by one who slept with a bisexual male and/or drug user.”

Ever think maybe HE (Magic) slept with a man or she-man?

CJ on December 6, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Do you know what might be a simple cancer treatement?, THC oil.
Have a watch of the film “the run from the cure” about a guy named Rick Simpson using cannabis extracts to cure cancers.
He cured cancers with a simple topical application of plant extract.
The only problem is the legality of the plant.
Instead of wasting energy talking about what disease should be the reason to give billions to the pharmacutical companies, Why not lobby for an end to pot prohibition and support someone doing something about cancers?
And then if you dont mind a lil reading I recommend a book by Jack Herer “the emperor wears no clothes”.
I should very much like to see Debbie’s perspective on this subject.
Have Fun.

James on December 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Debbie, you are one of the most idiotic people on this earth (and I am sorry I have to say that) AIDS is even more serious than cancer, you cant “catch” cancer from someone can you? 31% of the population has aids and you say that actors spreading aids awareness “dumb” please stop doing what you do
