Rand Paul a Member of AIDS-Denying Conspiracy Theory Group
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Rand Paul is a member of the totally whacked-out Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a group with an innocuous-sounding name that touts some really insane conspiracy theories: Rand Paul part of AAPS doctors’ group airing unusual views.
Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul belongs to a conservative doctors’ group that, among other things, has expressed doubts about the connection between HIV and AIDS and suggested that President Barack Obama may have been elected because he was able to hypnotize voters.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, based in Tucson, Ariz., advocates conservative and free-market solutions on health care and a variety of other political issues.
But it also uses its medical journal and Website as forums for unorthodox medical views.
Rand Paul, a Bowling Green ophthalmologist, has touted his credentials as a doctor during this year’s Senate race against Attorney General Jack Conway, a Democrat.
Rand Paul isn’t the only far right GOP candidate associated with this weirdo physician’s group: Group Promoting Sharron Angle Event: AIDS Deniers, Birthers, Conspiracy Theorists.
And another tea party advocate who’s a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons: Dr. David McKalip, a former Ron Paul campaign worker recently in the news for emailing to a Tea Party mailing list a picture of Barack Obama dressed as a witch doctor with a bone through his nose.
