I am so sick of made-up “rights” for this group or that I could puke. The latest group looking for “rights” – and getting lots of support from Progressives – would be pedophiles. You read that right, pedophiles.
You’ve got all sorts of groups who think pedophilia is just fine and the largest group would be Muslims.
After all, Mohammed was “married” to a nine year old girl so that makes it right.
Next would be psychiatrists, and their support for child rapists goes back at least two decades.
In fact, in 1998 The American Psychiatric Association issued a report claiming “that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from childhood sexual abuse experiences.”
Most recently, the mainstream Progressive press has sided with those who would bugger your baby. Salon.com, a money-losing but powerful mainstream voice from the Progressive Left recently published an article titled “I’m a Pedophile But Not a Monster.” You’ll have to find it on your own, I refuse to provide a link.
The author, Todd Nickerson, claims that he is sexually drawn to children but doesn’t act out on his desires so he’s just a regular guy. As you might guess Nickerson took some heat for his article. So he did a follow-up.
Got that? If you disagree with Todd you’re part of the “vile right-wing hate machine”.
There were two specific articles that called him out (no pun intended.) One by John Sexton, and one by Milo Yiannopoulos. Were they “hate pieces”? Follow the links, read the articles and judge for yourself. Personally, I think Todd-boy overreacted a tad.
The bottom line here is that Progressives (they would largely be Democrats) are trying to “normalize” pedophiles and say that sexual relations with eight-year-olds is just “normal behavior” as long as it’s “consensual.” Think I’m kidding?
Yet, incredibly, Salon is by no means alone. In the aftermath of the Jimmy Savile scandal in the UK, the Guardian published a feature carrying the disturbing claim that there is “not even a full academic consensus on whether consensual pedophilic relations necessarily cause harm.” Even left-wing comedy websites are complaining about society’s “misunderstanding” of pedophiles, and their writers post pictures of their own children to pedophiles in “support” when the self-confessed perverts are outed.
Really. Academics are confused about pedophilia. Color me shocked.
And, right here in North America, Canada to be exact, the left went on the war path over the Canadian government’s attempt to reign in people I first referred to in this post. Muslims.
For decades, moral relativism has underpinned radical left-wing thought. This is particularly clear when we look at how abuses in Muslim communities are treated. When the Conservative government in Canada labeled female genital mutilation and forced marriages as “barbaric cultural practices,” they were criticised by leading Canadian leftists.
I can’t wait until Democrats demand that Common Core be expanded to require hiring elementary school teachers who are pedophiles. Because, of course, they love children so much.
