This is an article that shouldn’t need to be written, but sadly, in our country today, it does. Remember, the good old days, when everybody – right, left, middle, Republican, Democrat, Independent, liberal, conservative, you name it – could all agree on this one thing – pedophilia was wrong; it was not only wrong, it was evil. Pedophiles were the lowest form of life. Pedophiles were so bad, so evil that in prison, the most violent, hardened criminals, viewed their actions towards children as so reprehensible that they would take it upon themselves to kill the pedophiles.
So, we all used to believe that harming a child was probably the worst thing anyone could do. But not anymore. Today, we have college professors who are arguing to change the term “pedophile” to “minor attracted person” in order to remove the stigma of the pedophile’s desire to rape little children. There is a reason why the term “pedophile” has been stigmatized. Pedophilia is an evil act. But the left is slowly trying to normalize pedophilia in our society, as they have done with every other form of taboo sexual behavior.
One could argue, that changing the term is merely semantics, and not something tangible. Fair enough. But words are not the only things being changed. In California, officials have passed legislation reducing the sentences for pedophilia. Recently, California has released thousands of pedophiles from prison after serving less than one year of their multi-year sentences. Who would ever think it’s a good idea to allow pedophiles out of prison early? What public good is served by doing that, considering that people who commit these types of crimes will most likely commit them again? Do the people in charge simply not care about children or do they actually want more children to be raped?
The acceptance of sexualizing and exploitation of children is not exclusive to our legal system, it is infiltrating all of our culture. Disney has stated publicly that it is pushing to create a paradigm shift in the content that they are directing at children and teens by making LGBTQ storylines more commonplace and organic across their platform. Last month, Bob Iger, the new CEO of Disney, said he is committed to increasing LGBT “storytelling” in Disney’s animated kids’ movies.
American Girl Doll has recently come out with a new book entitled, “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image: How to love yourself, live life to the fullest, and celebrate all kinds of bodies” aimed at girls 8-11 years old, telling them how prepubescent girls can change their gender to male. The book states, “Your gender expression can be feminine, masculine, or somewhere in between – and it might change!... Parts of your body may make you feel uncomfortable, and you may want to change the way you look. … ‘That’s totally OK! If you haven’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes.”
High end fashion brand Balenciaga was exposed last month for a photo shoot of a child posing in BDSM gear, with the pages from the Supreme Court ruling ‘United States v. Williams’ addressing the first amendment protections for child pornography, on a table in the shoot. Hollywood celebrities who are never shy about voicing their opinions on political and social issues have remained conspicuously silent on Balenciaga's child sexual exploitation scandal. After this scandal came to light, Balenciaga was then forced to end another ad campaign that included a book about a Belgian painter Michaël Borremans, whose work features castrated toddlers.
Our schools are actively sexualizing our children as well. Joseph Bruno, the Dean of Students at an elite school in Chicago, Francis W. Parker, said that they allow an LGBTQ+ group to bring sex toys into their classrooms. He bragged, “we do a Pride Week every year -- I had our LGBTQ+ Health Center come in [to the classroom]. They were passing around butt-plugs and dildos to my students -- talking about queer sex, using lube versus using spit.” He added, “We had a Drag Queen come in -- pass out cookies and brownies and do photos.”
Public schools and libraries in Philadelphia, New York and Maryland have also been hosting Drag Queen Story Hours where adult males wearing outrageous women's clothing, heavy make-up, and big haired wigs, dance and talk about sexual themes to our young children.
It is also not uncommon for many of our public schools to provide morning-after pills and other birth control drugs to students without their parents’ consent. Public schools are also promoting transgender ideology in their classrooms while also “socially transitioning” confused children, without the knowledge of their parents. A good rule of thumb is – If you have to lie about and hide what you are doing, there is a really good chance what you are doing is wrong.
But they know exactly what they are doing. If children were not impressionable, if their perspectives and identities could not be molded, these people would not be engaged in this indoctrination. If all of this attempted programming just ran over these children like nothing, and all the kids came through completely unscathed, these people would not waste their time. But they know that they are changing some of these kids; they know that they are grabbing the most impressionable, the least confident, the kids still trying to discover their identity, and leading down the LGBTQ rabbit hole.
What is this perverse desire among many powerful people in our country to sexualize children? Why can’t children just be allowed to be children these days? And why are so many people in corporate media willing to allow all this to happen without objection?
How many men are sitting in prison right now for what they did on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedophilia Island” where young girls were flown in to be raped by rich and powerful men? Ghislaine Maxwell is in prison, rightfully so, but why aren’t any of the man who raped these underage girls in prison? Not one of the men who participated in the child rape has been brought to justice, and the media has shown little curiosity to find out who were the men systematically raping these young girls.
Epstein's former pilot Lawrence Paul Visoski Jr. testified in trial that powerful and famous men like, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, Prince Andrew, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, and others, took trips to Epstein’s Island. Why is not one of those men sitting in jail? Why have none been brought to trial? Why haven’t they been questioned? Why is there no Woodward and Bernstein from corporate media chasing down this story to find out who committed these rapes? Maxwell is in jail for recruiting and grooming these young women, but Epstein was not the only man these girls were groomed for. Where are all the women’s rights groups standing up for the young rape victims? Where are all the women who showed up at the Supreme Court protesting the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh demanding justice for women? Where are the ever so brave #metoo women? I guess sexual harassment in the workplace of a grown woman is wrong, but raping young girls is okay.
20 years ago, the same corporate media that is willfully turning a blind eye to the mass sexual exploitation of our children across all of our institutions, engaged in a media frenzy over the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal under the pretense of protecting children. Looking at their silence today, it is fair to ask did the media use the sex scandal only as a way to attack the Catholic Church and Christianity, and not necessarily to protect children from abuse? In modern-day America, the left and the media have no interest in protecting children from predators; they are only interested in exploiting the abuse to achieve their ends.
That is how all of this works. It is a long game of destroying our institutions. First, they come after one of their despised institutions like the church and religion on grounds of sexual abuse of children, and once they’ve discredited the church sufficiently enough, they turn around and enable the sexual exploitation of children as a way to attack another one of their despised institutions, the family. We are used to the hypocrisy of the left but when their hypocrisy extends to something as evil as pedophilia, their hypocrisy crosses over into pure evil.
