President Trump ‘Should Be in Jail,’ Says Progressive Journalist Now Under Arrest

Posted on | June 9, 2019 | 3 Comments

 

Look at the date on that tweet from @DrPizza, which is the Twitter handle of Ars Technica reporter Peter Bright. April 19 — that’s the date when Bright said our President “should be in jail.”

 

April 19 is an interesting date in the life of Peter Bright, because a day earlier, he’d made contact with an undercover FBI agent. Of course, he didn’t know it was an undercover agent. He thought she was the mother of two children — a 7-year-old boy and a 9-year-old she was offering online for, uh, “sex education.” For more than month, Bright communicated with the agent, discussing what he’d like to do to the two preteens, sending photos of his genitalia, until on May 22 he went to meet them in Manhattan and was arrested.

 

The affidavit in the Peter Bright case is horrifying to read. Bright, who identified himself on his Twitter profile as polyamorous, pansexual and “pervy,” apparently frequented a social-media site for kinky people, where his handle was “randomanon.” During his conversations with the undercover agent, Bright claimed that he was already sexually involved with an 11-year-old girl, and expressed interest in masturbation and anal sex with the two children he thought the agent was offering.

Allegedly, I hasten to add. It’s important, as a matter of journalistic ethics, to include the word “allegedly” here, because Peter Bright is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

 

Did I mention that Peter Bright hates President Trump and also hates every American who voted for Trump? Because the British-born journalist said some very vile things about our President, and encouraged the harassment of Trump supporters like Mike Cernovich:

The child sexual predator and pedophile called Cernovich a Nazi.
The child sexual predator also called Cernovich “off the rails,” in a conservation he had with his good friend Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs. . . .
Peter Bright also amplified this harassment campaign against my family and interacted with my stalkers and those who have threatened my daughter.

Hey, Mike, you forgot to include the word “alleged” — alleged child sex predator Peter Bright, who is a “good friend” of Charles Johnson.

 

It would be wrong — a violation of Journalism Ethics™ — for me to engage in any lurid speculation about what would happen to alleged pedophile Peter Bright if he goes to federal prison, but that professional consideration doesn’t apply to blog commenters, y’know.
