‘I Have HIV. Lol’: California Law Won’t Protect Victims Like Those of Daryll Rowe

Who’s this?

Daryll Rowe, a 26-year-old hairdresser from Edinburgh, has been accused of not only purposely spreading HIV to his sexual partners but also mocking them in text messages. He has been charged in a British court with infecting four men and trying to infect six more.

His first victim allegedly received a text saying, “Maybe you have the fever. I came inside you and I have HIV LOL. Oops!”

Is this what California just bragged about decriminalizing?

Yes. Last week, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill into lawlowering the crime of knowingly exposing a partner to HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor. People like Rowe who purposely try to infect a partner with HIV will no longer be charged with a felony, and the new law even applies when people donate blood without disclosing that they have HIV.

Glenn’s take:

“Who … doesn’t think this monster should be in jail?” Glenn asked. If Rowe were in California, he wouldn’t be behind bars – he would be free to meet more men on dating apps to infect them purposely with HIV.

GLENN: The telephone rang. Hello.

Silence on the other end.

Hello. Who is this?

The silence on the other end suddenly turned into hysterical and maniacal laughter.

Burn! I got you.

The man who picked up the phone dropped it. He knew who the caller was. It was the man who had intentionally gave him HIV.

The man Darrell Row on trial in England right now for knowingly and maliciously infecting four men with the HIV virus without their knowledge.

This despicable human being had a terrifying system. He would lure men in for sex, and then he would sabotage any protection. And he would infect his victim, knowingly. Then, he would mercilessly mock them. He would send them abusive texts and phone calls, all while telling them, "Ha, ha, you're going to burn. I gave you HIV."

Who within the sound of my voice doesn't think this monster shouldn't be in jail?

If Darrell row moved to California, he would not be behind bars awaiting a court date like he is now. He would be a free man. And he would probably be swiping right to meet his next victim. But in California, starting January 1, it will no longer be a felony in California to knowingly expose a sexual partner to HIV with the intent of transmitting the virus.

Now, listen to that. You are knowingly infecting someone with HIV, to give them the virus. That has to be your intent.

Why -- why -- why has California decided to change the law? Because they say that HIV has a stigma to it.

Yes. The bill sponsor Senator Scott Wiener explained, we are going to end the new HIV infections, and we'll do so not by threatening people with prison people, but rather, giving people a test. And providing them access to care. So let me see if I have this straight, California, you're going to stop HIV infections by letting terrible human beings continue to spread HIV infections to unknowing victims.

That doesn't make any sense at all. And I'm also sorry to break it to you, California, but you cannot destigmatize HIV. I'd like to put a happy face on cancer. You can't. It's a potentially fatal disease. No one wants it.

It should have a stigma. What do you think all those little pictures are up on -- about cancer? What do you think it is that you post on all of the walls in California, whenever you walk into an establishment, if they sell alcohol, there at the front door, it says, "By the way, low fetal birth weight." I don't know why you care about the fetus in the first place. But low fetal birth weight, could cause damage to pregnant mothers. You're doing that to stigmatize something that is harmful.

HIV-positive people should not be judged by their disease or discriminated against in any way, shape, or form. But the disgusting people who intentionally infect others should be criminalized. California, you have officially gone insane.

Your state is burning down in more ways than one. And you're the ones with the matches. Your efforts to normalize and condone this terrorism -- because that's what it is -- is beyond revolting.

And unfortunately, will have the opposite effect on HIV infections.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
