Charles Johnson Promotes Shinola Again: Planned Parenthood closing had nothing to do with HIV outbreak in rural Indiana in 2015.Posted: April 7, 2017
We’re gonna tear this one apart, Charles. You ready?
Let that sink in for a minute. According to Charles Johnson, defunding Planned Parenthood caused an outbreak in HIV infection in rural Indiana.
That photo was taken by Paul Sableman at 30 South 3rd Street in downtown Terre Haute, Indiana in 2011. Not exactly rural, but geography isn’t Johnson’s strong suit. This particular clinic operated with limited hours for several years, until Planned Parenthood decided to close that location. So what.
Here’s the problem.
The closing of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Terre Haute had nothing to do with an outbreak of HIV in Austin, Indiana, 130 miles and 2-1/2 hours drive time away. Austin is a small rural town of about 4,300 people and it has a drug problem. It’s closer to Louisville Kentucky and Cincinnati Ohio than it is to Terra Haute Indiana.
Apparently Planned Parenthood closed the clinic on South 3rd Street on or about July 2016 (prior to the presidential election) yet they still have local clinics elsewhere. A search of zipcode 47807 on their own website turns up 10 clinics in or near Terre Haute. A search of clinics in zipcode 47102 results in another 10 clinics in or near Austin, Indiana.
So the premise is false, and Charles Johnson is promoting an easily disputable lie.
The HIV outbreak happened in March 2015, affected about 190 people, and was due to needle sharing. The idiots were injecting a liquid version of Opana ER (oxymorphone) an opiate painkiller. In other words, an astounding 4% of the residents of Austin fucked themselves up by sharing HIV-infected needles. That’s not Planned Parenthood’s fault, the fault of the Religious Right or that of conservative politicians. It’s the fault of brain-dead white trash morons who did it to themselves.
BTW, Dillo Bush is the Mayor of Austin, Indiana, and he’s a Democrat, not that it matters…
Charles, you used to pride yourself with fact-checking before posting stupidity. What happened?

1. Charles Johnson posts what he thinks is a scoop on Sarah Palin, and even his own Loyal Lizard Lappers call him on it, but for the wrong reasons:
3. Then Johnson claims, without evidence, that Sarah Palin has a John Birch Society newsletter on her desk. How Charles knows what a JBS Newsletter looks like is up to you to decide. Here’s a blow up of that image, cropped and inverted with enhanced contrast:
Now look at this and note the date:
Palin was reviewing a newsletter about “Con-Con Call” that argues for a Constitutional Convention OPPOSED by the John Birch Society. Is it any surprise that in 1995 a Wasilla Councilwoman might have had such a newsletter on her calendar blotter, just to read it?
In JazzyJohnsonWorld, the answer is yes.
“People like Mark Steyn are just dishonest, bigoted opportunists” – look in the mirror (if you dare) Chunky and see a real dishonest, bigoted, opportunist.
Once upon a time Mark Steyn used to be a treasured columnist on LGF and his columns were regularly posted there.
The Charles Johnson of 2006 would not recognize the 2012 version.

It is fair to point out that the sage of Culver city is a liar. he has lied about his role and goals in Rathegate. Now is lying claiming that Fox News has hired Donald Trump.
Here is the truth, Charles go this story from the Hufington Post. Well here’s the headline from that article.
Here’s what the article Charles linked to actually says.
As Mediaite’s Frances Martel notes, while Trump is merely making a weekly guest appearance and is not becoming a Fox News contributor, “it is surprising to see a potential presidential candidate assume a media role so close to the election.
Trump is not being hired by Fox, but will just have a weekly segment. That’s a huge difference than him being hired. Once again, Charles lies in his headline and the story he links to contradicts it! Another day and another lie by the Sage of Culver City.
Chuck who is warming of some massive Ron Paul led plot involving White Supremacists, Nazis, the Catholic Church, Glenn Beck, Pam Geller, the EDL, the Vlaams Belang, Rightwing Israelis, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Extraterrestrials, Marco Rubio, Tobacco companies, Michelle Bachmann, and Christian Reconstructionists/Dominionists. The latter group he has attacked very harshly and has warned of their nefarious plot to impose a theocratic state in America.
Well the following post is very interesting. Ed Brayton wrote a post, where he discusses the threat of Sharia and radical Islam. His point was to not use the threat of radical Islam to disparage every Muslim. The point of this post is not to argue what Brayton wrote. It is to show that once again Charles has been caught in a lie.
Chuck has said he agrees with every word. Well I ask the readers, do you really think the Jazz Man agrees with this statement below?
So does Charles “Icarus” Johnson agrees that Christian Reconstructionists are not as big a threat as Islamic Imperialists? We know the answer to that is no. In fact his posts discuss the Christian threat and claims the Islamic one is contained.
Chuck has been caught in yet another lie
After being called out for his statement that he agrees with Ed Brayton’s every word, he retracts!
Chuck can’t admit the obvious, he hates Christians.
(Hat Tip: Whatever)
I might have to start a post called the daily Chuck lie. Charles “Icarus” Johnson has another post today, that when you actually read the links, contradict what he is saying.
What Chuck doesn’t tell his readers that it’s that the government is funding a NASCAR team for the sake of doing it. It’s the US military sponsoring a NASCAR team to carry a recruiting logo.
From Chuck’s own link:
The Army, the Air Force and the National Guard NASCAR racing teams will ride again this year, after the House voted 241-148 to ditch a measure to ban the Pentagon from sponsoring stock car teams.
What Charles doesn’t comprehend is that The Military is an obligation the government must pay for. How ill this nation be defended without a military. We have a volunteer force, so the armed services must recruit. Using NASCAR to recruit is a cost-effective way to do it. Funding Planned Parenthood is not an obligation the US government has. In fact they perform procedures that many Americans abhor.
I have stated many times that abortion is an issue I really could care less about. That said, I don’t support the government funding or supporting an organization that promotes this procedure. If PLanned Parenthood is providing a greats service, let them raise funds privately, not with my money.
Clearly Charles knows full well the US Government must maintain a military. He clearly decided to lie about this issue here because wants our tax dollars to go to Planned Parenthood. Why doesn’t he and his cult members raise the funds for this organization? The reason is he’s a leech and wants us to fork the bill for abortion and organizations that promote it. But advertising for the military he’s against.
Here’s an example of the type of thinking on the part of Chuck’s minions
What this idiot Kragar doesn’t know is that Blacks have had a disproportionate amount of abortions compared to Whites. Planned Parenthood has been at the forefront of this, so this actually helps Blacks. Also those NASCAR cars have ads for joining the US military. Clearly this is what Chuck caters too.
People like Kragar are the reason why Charles lies, his audience is so brainwashed that he can tell them the sky is yellow and they would believe it. Another day, another vile lie by Chuck. He sinks lower and lower by the day.
