Remember the Pro-Pedophile Movement That Liberals Pretend Doesn’t Exist?

Posted on | November 17, 2013 | 124 Comments

Considering how often we’re told that there is no such movement, the ongoing effort to legalize sex with kids sure keeps busy:

The [British] prime minister has rejected a call from a leading expert on public health to lower the age of consent to 15.
Faculty of Public Health president Prof John Ashton said society had to accept that about a third of all boys and girls were having sex at 14 or 15.
He said the move would make it easier for 15-year-olds to get sexual health advice from the NHS.
Downing Street said the current age of 16 was in place to protect children and there were “no plans to change it”.
Official figures suggest up to a third of teenagers have sex before the age of consent.
Prof Ashton said lowering the age by a year could “draw a line in the sand” against sex at 14 or younger.
He said: “We need a debate here. It’s time the adults started talking about the situation to take these enormous pressures off children and young people from becoming sexually active too early.

Notice that this push for lowering the age of consent is coming from academia, which is where the pro-pedophile movement was observable as a distinct phenomenon more than a decade ago.

My prior awareness of this intellectual trend — a movement that is deliberately ignored by mainstream media — was why I hastened to defend Rush Limbaugh in January:

Rush Limbaugh Is Right: The Academic
Pro-Pedophile Movement Is a Real Danger

The origins and history of this movement, which can be clearly traced to Professor Alfred Kinsey’s bogus sex studies in the 1940s, which emerged as political advocacy in the 1960s and ’70s in the wake of the Sexual Revolution, has been documented by Dr. Judith Reisman and others. You can read my 2002 article about Lawrence Stanley, a pedophile lawyer who was once widely cited as an authority about the supposed non-danger of child pornography.

You should also be aware that the academic pro-pedophile movement for many years was most vocal in Europe. Theo Sandfort, a Dutch academic, was a member of the editorial board of the notorious pedophile journal Paidika. Sandfort authored the 2001 book Childhood Sexuality and co-edited the 1990 book Male Intergenerational Intimacy with fellow Paidika contributor Edward Brongersma, who was convicted for having sex with a 16-year-old boy. Theo Sandfort is now on the faculty of Columbia University, demonstrating how American academia has imported European perversion.

However, liberal journalists have actively sought to suppress public awareness of the pro-pedophile movement. Why is this? Because liberals don’t want to admit that this evil deviancy originated with their ideological comrades of the radical Left.

“Childlike innocence is an invention of the bourgeoisie of early capitalism.”
Olaf Stüben, German pedophile activist, 1981

The media don’t want you to know the truth about this, nor will they confront the “ample evidence of the alliance between gay rights organizations and pedophile activists” in Europe, the influence of which has spilled over into the academic elite everywhere.

Only if you are aware that this movement exists would you have shared my alarm at the “Free Kate” arguments on behalf of a Florida lesbian sex offender: “Kaitlyn Hunt Is Guilty and, Yes, There Is a Movement to ‘Normalize Pedophilia’.”

That story wasn’t just about a couple of teenagers in Florida. We never would have heard of Kate Hunt if she had taken the original plea deal offered by prosecutors, as most such offenders do. But because Hunt and her family believed they could portray her as a victim of homophobia, and thought they would gain support by presenting gay activists with a photogenic victim, there arose a movement which — had it been successful — might have set a legal precedent that could undermine age-of-consent laws nationwide.

And this is what the pro-pedophile movement has always wanted: To eliminate “arbitrary” age-based limits on sexual activity.

Of course, any age limit is in some sense “arbitrary,” and no matter where the law establishes the legal age of consent, there will always be some borderline cases where criminal punishment could be seen as unfair or overly harsh. Yet if the law sets 16 as the age of consent, and an 18-year-old has sex with a 14-year-old, how can anyone argue that punishment for the offense violates the 18-year-old’s “rights” (as Kaitlyn Hunt’s defenders argued) without effectively exposing all 14-year-olds to legalized sexual exploitation?

Happy 14th Birthday! (Batteries not included.)

There is an attitude of antinomian lawlessness and moral relativism that I have called “The Intellectual Astroglide of the Elite,” which seeks to steadily erode our instinctive horror at such perversity.

Professor John Ashton, presented as Britain’s “leading expert on public health,” may not think of himself this way and, if accused of advocating pedophilia, would almost certainly deny it. At some point, however, common sense requires that we ask if the effect of policy is not also the intent of policy, no matter what the advocates of that policy may tell us to the contrary.

One need not accuse Professor John Ashton of being the clandestine agent of a secretive pedophile conspiracy in order to say that pedophiles would welcome a law lowering the age of consent to 15. And if the age of consent were lowered to 15 — common sense tells us, if we have paid attention long enough — then at some point in the future we will hear an argument for lowering the age of consent to 14.

The more “normal” the intellectuals can make this seem, the more acceptable it will become and the more we will be told that opponents of pedophilia are hysterical hateful bigots. Therefore, if opponents of this movement do not speak up now, they will eventually find they are marginalized and stigmatized as “extremists.”

People need to wake the hell up.




 

 

UPDATE: “Pedophile problem? What pedophile problem?”

A sweeping child pornography investigation has led to the rescue of 386 children around the world and the arrest of 348 people, Canadian police said Thursday. . . .
Police said 108 people were arrested in Canada and 76 in the U.S. Others were arrested in other countries.
Australian Federal Police commander Glen McEwen on Friday confirmed that 65 men had been arrested in Australia as a result of the Canadian investigation, and six Australian children had been removed from harm.
Police said the children were “rescued from child exploitation” but did not give more details.

    Richard Dear, don’t you think that deck chair would look better a little closer to the railing?

    I wouldn’t call either of the two reports you linked as “gleeful” in an way. They were pretty much factual accounts, neither applauding Mr Clem’s light sentence or cheering on the state’s attempt at getting the sentence vacated and a harsher one imposed.

    Heh. P’raps …

  • http://deadrepublicanparty.wordpress.com/ rmnixondeceased

    Agreed!

  • Shawny

    You can tell it’s “love” by the way children are interchangeable with livestock, just like “perverts” and “pedophiles” will be interchangeable with……

  • The Bearded Bastard of Babylon

    That’s why I put “gleefully” in parentheses…

    When I googled the perp’s name, it was the left-wing sites reporting the sentencing that popped up at the top of the search! I thought this was significant… Their reports on the sentence seem cautious(ly optomistic) to me!

  • The Bearded Bastard of Babylon

    They would be enthusiastic about more adolescent pregnancies that they could terminate!

    Again you’re reading more into what I said than I actually did.

    I said that moral arguments alone are insufficient to convince people and that “For Your Own Good” arguments usually fail in spectacular fashion.

    “For The Children” isn’t terribly effective either.

  • NeoWayland

    Correct.

  • Jeanette Victoria

    Actually I have a similar story that happen about 10 years ago. My daughter, a Navy recruit was slipped a Roofie at a country western night club. She was date raped. The perp was a Marine. She chose not too go to the police. However the next time she spotted him at the club her Marine friends took care of him. I understand there was a ambulance called.

  • Quartermaster

    My wife was one of he last of the WAVES and she had several brothers by other mothers that saw to such things for her. There was more than one guy that got carried to the door of the EM club when they got out of line. The club managers would never get involved either.

  • Quartermaster

    I’d say the list of such is rather long here.

  • DumbCons

    Lowering the age of consent to 15 from 16 based on simple statistics is part of the pro-pedophilia movement?

    Yeah, keep looking for those boogeymen.
