George H.W. Bush Is Dead: Not As Bad As Reagan But He Still Had AIDS Victim’s Blood On His Hands – Video

Via Andy Humm on Facebook:

If you’re mourning George H.W. Bush, watch this. All of it. ACT UP v. Bush in 1992. He gave us LOTS of reasons to protest vociferously–and said during one of the debates that we just had to change our behavior. At the end of the video, Larry Kramer says that unless we can get this president to listen, “We’re as good as dead.” It closes with AIDS activists–many still active–dancing in the streets when Bush lost to Clnton. (No, that didn’t change everything. But it was the beginning of the change.)
