Judge Rules on HIV-Positive Troops

A somewhat confusing ruling has come regarding troops that have tested HIV-positive.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema has ruled these soldiers cannot be discharged solely for testing positive.

The ruling is confusing because we have troops being booted from the service for refusing to take the COVID vaccine.

A Bit Hypocritical

If you ever needed proof that political ideology and activism have saturated our judiciary, this is the case.

COVID has dissipated to the point that it is now more or less the flu on steroids.

We could probably make the case that the flu is now more severe.

I personally know dozens of people that tested positive and never showed a single symptom of COVID.

HIV is obviously far more serious, yet the judge, in this case, ruled that these troops can stay in the service.

This is not about me having a problem with people testing positive for HIV but rather the stark contrast in punishment being handed out to those that do not want to take the COVID vaccine.

The plaintiffs in the case are Sgt. Nick Harrison of the D.C. Army National Guard and two more unidentified members of the Air Force.

They were going to be discharged after testing positive  ”because they are classified as ineligible for worldwide deployment … due to their HIV-positive status.”

Peter Perkowski, an attorney for the plaintiffs, stated, “The military was the last employer in the country that had a policy against people living with HIV. Every other employer — including first responders — is subject to rules that prohibit discrimination based on HIV status.”

The DOJ defended its case by saying that these troops could infect others on the battlefield where there was the chance other troops would come into contact with their blood.

So, just to be clear, we have HIV-positive troops that are now fit for service but perfectly healthy troops that do not want to get a COVID vaccine that are being kicked out of the service.

That seems to be a pretty consistent ruling by the courts (sarcasm intended).
