What “Tolerance” Has Wrought – & It’s Quite Sick
It is nearly impossible for one not to note that the scandal surrounding billionaire Jeffrey Epstein being charged with the sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy comes on the heels of a veritable tsunami of recent news stories highlighting various forms of sexual deviance and misconduct, which are either being advanced or committed, respectively, by those on the left.
Part of the reason for this is that there are now enough potent alternative media sources addressing stories like these (the establishment press will do nothing but run interference for criminal offenders on the left as they extol the virtues of sexual deviance), and because the political left is so vigorously pushing this doctrine of evil that it is nearly impossible for the average citizen to escape it.
In recent months, we’ve been treated to such news items as “trans” men molesting girls in ladies’ rooms, more and more aspects of sexual deviance being taught in schools, the introduction of bills that would soften criminal penalties for pedophiles and several instances of very high-profile liberals being prosecuted for sex crimes against children. Some of these have been so disturbing that even the establishment press didn’t pass on them.
In the wake of the 2017 Harvey Weinstein scandal and the advent of the MeToo Movement, the public was alerted to the fact that some of the sexual misconduct being perpetrated by Hollywood types was against children, as former child stars came forward to attest to having been serially molested and/or raped by adults in the industry. Inasmuch as Hollywood has designated itself the arbiter of morality and culture in America – and that their dictates are often followed by the mindless – this is particularly troubling.
In an interview last week, former Disney star Bella Thorne discussed her years of molestation and rape at the hands of adults in the entertainment industry. Thorne’s claims are singularly horrifying; she recounts numerous instances of being forced into full-on intercourse from the age of 6, with those around her doing nothing despite possessing full knowledge of what was going on.
Leaving aside the inevitable physical injury resulting from adults having sex with children, there is no escaping the deep inculcation of emotional and psychological trauma attendant to same and that this persists for the victim’s lifetime. Anyone who maintains otherwise is simply lying.
Despite this, the underhanded push for normalizing pedophilia marches on. In October 2014, Rutgers law professor Margo Kaplan penned an op-ed for the New York Times contending that pedophiles suffer from a disorder and thence ought not be prosecuted as criminals. For those who are old enough to remember, the process of normalizing homosexuality in our society ran the very same course, in that it began with de-stigmatizing said behavior. As I pointed out in last week’s column, The American Psychological Association (APA) itself has been forced to backpedal on its sporadic efforts to normalize pedophilia after public outcry and the resistance of some mental-health professionals.
Here, I believe it is important to address the deportment of the majority – or morally-grounded, conscientious Americans – in this context. The political left has been uncannily successful in driving narratives and re-qualifying normalcy, and this is only because we’ve allowed them to do so.
When the LGBTQ lobby began pushing for legitimizing “gay marriage,” all of the censure within that discussion fell upon the majority who questioned the wisdom of the measure, rather than the minuscule faction that sought to buck a societal convention that has existed for thousands – I repeat, thousands – of years. This not only flies in the face of common sense, but it’s completely illogical.
As a result, we now have political candidates proudly flaunting their deviance, trotting out their same-sex partners during campaign events – and winning elections.
In the near future, we can expect that those of us who resist the proliferation of gay children and teens, preteen “drag queens” and the normalization of pederasty and pedophilia will be branded by the left as a bunch of big fat meanies for our disapproval. It is we who will be accused of seeking to harm these children, rather than that charge falling upon those who wish to serially rape them.
At this juncture, I must ask: When did we become a society wherein we reflexively capitulated to destructive public policy with nothing but “accept it or we’ll call you names” being the impetus for our yielding to a disgusting and damaging agenda?
In millennia past, and until very recently in America, most communities would welcome the summary execution of a child rapist. The fact that we have thus far acceded to the demands of the left on the topic of sexual morality in the name of tolerance illustrates that we are well on our way down the slippery slope to a fundamentally sick society. The fact that the left can engage in their advocacy for extreme perversion so shamelessly says more about us than it does about them at this point, and what it says isn’t good.
This is what tolerance, as the left qualifies it, has wrought. The sickness described herein represents who the left is, and what they want for all of us.
Wake up, America. It’s not about what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms – and it never has been.
