The liberal blog known as Salon-dot-com has spent the past 20 years losing money at a rate of more than a million dollars a year. Total losses by Salon-dot-com during the course of its existence are, as I said in 2012, “probably somewhere between $20 million and a metric buttload.” A few years ago, the proprietors of Salon-dot-com tried to sell it to another media company but negotiations reportedly broke down because nobody could figure out what Salon was worth, if anything. Exactly what the “investors” at Salon-dot-com aim to achieve — beyond providing employment for liberal writers — is uncertain, but profit is certainly not a goal. Promoting pedophilia on the other hand . . .
“I’m a Pedophile, But Not a Monster” was the headline on a particularly egregious recent example of Salon-dot-com’s habit of making soi-disant “counterintuitive” arguments on behalf of sexual deviance. Over the years, they have done this with every imaginable perversion and fetish. Nothing is too weird or too kinky for Salon-dot-com, whose editors are enthusiastically in favor of every kind of sex except normal sex. Your regular variety of husband-and-wife, penis-and-vagina sexuality — no, Salon-dot-com never has anything to say in praise of the kind of normal sex that normal people have. Instead, they’re always looking for the Confession of Strange Sex story, “How I Worked My Way Through Grad School as a Bisexual BDSM Dominatrix-for-Hire” or something.
The pro-pedophile stance of Salon-dot-com could be seen as just another example of their attempting to get cheap clicks, boosting their traffic by appealing to readers with perverse sexual appetites, i.e., Obama voters.
So when Salon-dot-com provided a platform to self-confessed pedophile Todd Nickerson, the Internet went wild with condemnation. The peasants in the online village wanted to take their digital pitchforks after Nickerson, to burn him at the Internet stake. Announcing himself to the world as a Creepy Dude Who Wants to Have Sex With Kids was not the kind of gesture for which pedophile Todd Nickerson could have expected to be praised, and yet the creepy dude nonetheless pretended to be shocked — shocked! — by the angry reaction:
You see? According to Salon-dot-com, you have nothing to fear from the Creepy Dude Who Wants to Have Sex With Kids. Instead, Salon-dot-com would have you believe, the real danger is “the vile right-wing hate machine.” It is the eagerness of Salon-dot-com’s editors to promote this bizarre worldview, in which Republicans are more dangerous than pedophiles, that makes “investors” willing to lose millions of dollars year after year to keep that crappy web site online.
Breitbart.com’s John Sexton had the distinction of being singled out by Todd Nickerson as an example of “vile right-wing hate,” and you see what that is about: Nothing says “right-wing hate” in the liberal mind more than the name “Breitbart” — you remember him, the guy who exposed a Democrat congressman as a pervert? Democrat politicians are perverts because Democrat voters are perverts who support Democrat policies that promote perversion, which are always praised by the Democrat perverts who write for sites like Salon-dot-com. Mothers are warning their children: “Stay away from that creep — he’s got an Obama sticker on his car. He’s probably a Salon-dot-com reader!”
Democrats are people who will tolerate anything — radical Islam, an illegal immigrant crime wave, transgenderism in public schools, rioters demonizing the police — as long as this “tolerance” is sold to them as “progressive,” and if they can convince themselves that the alternative to tolerating these things is to vote Republican. So if your son is being molested by his middle-school teacher, or your daughter is being “groomed” by a pervert on the Internet, you’re supposed to shrug this off as the necessary cost of “tolerance.” Actually wanting to do something to protect kids would make you part of the “vile right-wing hate machine,” and how can a Democrat voter even imagine doing that?

These “progressive” perverts celebrate the murder of innocent babies in the womb, and want to “humanize” child molesters, and you are guilty of “vile hate” if you disapprove of their agenda. But wait, look, here is yet another writer at Salon-dot-com, lamenting that an “intellectually curious” pedophile was arrested for trying to meet with a 10-year-old girl:
I tell friends, colleagues, and strangers I meet . . . when they fail to understand why I am sympathetic towards pedophiles, “How would you feel if you couldn’t ever have sex with anyone? What if you also couldn’t look at the porn you liked because it was illegal, and couldn’t confide in anyone for support?” By this point, most people begin nodding their heads in agreement.
(Are they nodding in agreement? Or are they thinking to themselves, “How can I keep this fruitcake away from my children?”)
The backlash that Todd Nickerson faced upon publicly writing about his personal struggle with pedophilia is a reminder that we, as a society, have far to go in challenging the way we think about this emotionally charged subject. But our current approach is not working.
So “we, as a society” are to blame for the “personal struggle with pedophila” of Creepy Dudes Who Want to Have Sex With Kids.
The “investors” at Salon-dot-com are willing to lose millions of dollars a year to make sure that message is delivered to the Democrat voters who read Salon-dot-com. Because “our current approach” — banning child pornography and putting child molesters in prison — “is not working,” you see. And for whom are these laws “not working”?
Also, “our current approach” is bad for the Democrat Party, because if pedophiles and child pornographers are serving long sentences in federal prison, they can’t vote for Democrats anymore.
Salon-dot-com is widely read by Democrat voters and child molesters, but I repeat myself. https://t.co/zxTCZ78Pax
