There is one advantage to the Leftist displays of lunacy in recent years. It is revealing to more people than ever how insane the Left actually is.
However, there is also a decided disadvantage in acquiring this knowledge. It is when one discovers just how depraved Leftist insanity has now become.
Such knowledge stirs emotions ranging from disgust to anger, especially when it concerns those who are helpless among us. We learned this anew when the newest charges against wealthy Leftist Jeffery Epstein were revealed recently.
This convicted pedophile is now facing further charges and perhaps some real hard time, not the 13 months of light-duty he received before. In fact, most commentators expect that Epstein could take several high-profile Democratic stars down with him, most of all former President Bill Clinton.
The author of “Trafficking,” Conchita Sarnoff appeared on Fox News where she destroyed Bill Clinton for his denial statement being involved with Jeffrey Epstein. Sarnoff dropped a huge bomb by establishing not only did Bill Clinton ride Epstein’s plane 27 times and many without secret service, but the pilot logs establish many underage girls were riding those flights as well.
Panic on the Left
The Left is practically in panic mode because of these revelations. They realize that the fallout from the Epstein affair could seriously damage their hopes of regaining the White House.
Consequently, the Leftmedia has taken care to make sure that President Trump is mentioned in association with Epstein at every opportunity. The one huge problem is that not only is there no evidence of any association as the only dealings between the two was when Trump had Epstein thrown out and banned from his Mar-a-Lago hotel.
Patterson had another revelation about whether or not Trump had knowledge of Epstein’s disgusting activities.
At another point in the interview, Patterson said he “knows Trump didn’t know” about Epstein’s alleged criminal activity.
However, Trump’s Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta has been under the gun because he was the prosecutor involved in Epstein getting a sweetheart plea bargain in 2008. Acosta has tendered his resignation as Labor Secretary in light of that revelation.
President Trump announced he did not have any involvement of Acosta resigning and he came to that decision on his own. Trump told ABC, “He’s doing this not for himself, he’s doing this for the administration.”
The Left is also furiously trying to use this episode with Acosta to keep the focus on Trump and away from the Leftist power brokers they adore. One example features the lovable (?) Senator Chuck Schumer [D-NY] calling for Acosta’s resignation to deflect from the rather substantial amount of money Epstein donated to Schumer’s political aspirations.
The New York senator and entities that are linked to him received a grand total of around $22,000 from the accused sex trafficker, The New York Post reported.
It will be interesting to see in the coming weeks just how many names of influential Leftists will be discovered as close associates and companions of this billionaire sex trafficker. Moreover, it should not be surprising that Leftists use and abuse children since they have routinely been doing so in their own political and cultural arenas for quite awhile.
Leftists Child Sex-Abuse Reaches Beyond Epstein
Some may point out that Epstein is not representative of the Left as he is only one person. Of course, this ignores the grave implications of the Clintons and various other celebrities of Leftist bent having close associations with Epstein.
However, there is far more evidence implicating the Left in pedophilia and other types of child abuse. For instance, there is an entire Leftist organization dedicated to normalizing pedophilia called the North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA.
So there is no confusion, the “love” part of the name refers specifically to the sexual attraction male pedophiles have toward underage boys. They openly advocate for the normalization of “consensual” sexual relationships between adult males and underage boys and campaign for the reduction or elimination of age-of-consent laws.
Here is one of the arguments they use to justify their existence:
Most man/boy relationships are based on mutual respect and affection, and strongly desired by both partners. Such relationships do not harm anyone, and often entail many benefits for both man and boy. Boy-lovers and boys alike respond to the needs of those they love — needs for affection, understanding, and freedom.
However, a fascinating video from a 2009 “Hannity” episode gave a bit of an inside look at NAMBLA from someone who infiltrated the group. The video quality is poor but the message is very clear and disturbing.
Jennings was appointed by then-President Obama in 2009 and served as “Safe Schools Czar” for 18 months before he stepped down in 2011, presumably so as not to make Obama’s re-election campaign more difficult.
Kevin Jennings, a homosexual activist who has served in the U.S. Department of Education as the “Safe Schools Czar” for the last 18 months has stepped down, with some saying Jenning was pushed out for fear that his unsavory past would become an issue in the 2012 elections.
A more recent example of pedo-promotion occurred just last month in a tweet which is no longer available on Twitter as the account has been suspended. The account belonged to Amos Yee, a refugee who came to America seeking political asylum in 2016, which he received in 2017.
Mr. Amos Yee, for the record, is a pedophile himself who on Dec. 6, 2018 posted a photo of a pre-pubescent girl on Twitter with the comment “How does one not become a pedophile?” He wrote a tweet on June 11, 2019, which reads,
Children enjoy sex, whether that’s between themselves or someone their age or even better yet someone who’s mature and can guide them through sex. Sex between an adult and a child doesn’t always = rape. Pedos need to be accepted. #LGBTQP #Pride 2019
Pedos need to be accepted?! Seriously? This is an obvious attempt to normalize pedophilia, and Yee is one of many on the Left who want such normalization to happen.
In fact, prominent Leftist publications such as Salon magazine have promoted the idea that there exist “virtuous pedophiles,” in several articles from 2015. Moreover, a New York Times op-ed writer advocated on October 5, 2014, that pedophilia should be protected as a disability under the law!
The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination against otherwise qualified individuals with mental disabilities, in areas such as employment, education and medical care. Congress, however, explicitly excluded pedophilia from protection under these two crucial laws. It’s time to revisit these categorical exclusions. …
These episodes are a few revelations of how those guilty of heinous crimes against children prey on the young with the support of the Left. Moreover, there is another movement that has gained massive support from the Left which exploits and physically harms very young children, the movement for “transgender rights.”
Leftist Political Action for The Torture of ‘Transitioning’ Children
This journal, along with many others, has repeatedly warned of the dangers of ‘transgenderism’ to society as a whole and to children in particular. Here is a movement of child sex abuse that has received active promotion by past President Obama.
This happened in 2016 with the…
granting of federal government approval of the ‘transgender rights’ cause. This was accomplished by former President Barack Obama in 2016.
“The Obama administration is sending out an edict today [5/13/2016] to every school district in the country, insisting they open bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to all children, regardless of sex, or risk federal discrimination lawsuits and yanked federal funds. Schools must treat children as transgender and thus entitled to open facilities access as soon as parents say they are, not after a medical diagnosis or birth certificate change.”
Some might ask why transgenderism should be included as sexual child abuse. I would ask another question in response.
“How is a societal and political movement which encourages children as young as 3 or 4 to ‘identify’ as the wrong sex, eventually take dangerous drugs as ‘puberty blockers’, followed by injecting dangerous ‘cross-sex hormone’ chemicals and finished by surgical destruction of sex organs be anything other than the sexual abuse of children?”
This is simply a process of slow torture for the child, dooming that child to a lifetime of confusion, depression and eventual suicide for almost half its victims. It also involves the powerful adult imposing their fantasy onto the child as early as possible to give the child little room to escape.
An excellent piece in Thinkr’s online magazine goes through the entire process in cold detail and makes the following observation.
The age at which each of the phases commences is getting continually lower. This decreases the likelihood that children will be able to consider a different course. They will be hemmed into a particular course of action far before they are emotionally, psychologically, and socially developed enough to realize the ramifications of their feelings.
The Left owns this issue, as even a casual observer can see. However, it must also be admitted that the Christian community has experienced more than its share of cases of child sex abuse.
The Question of Child Abuse by Christians
I’m going to address one objection which will undoubtedly be raised against the crux of this article. “What about Christians, like Catholic priests, or Protestant ministers who have been guilty of sexual abuse of children? They’re not a bunch of Leftists, are they?”
There are two incorrect assumptions within those kinds of questions. First, there is the assumption that Catholics and Protestants are not Leftward leaning at all.
That is not the case, as this journal has noted in several articles. Perhaps a majority of these organizations are conservative, however, a substantial minority of them are what I have called the Leftward Church.
Second, and more importantly, is the false assumption that the sexually abusing children is approved and accepted by the conservative Christian community. Incidents of such abuse have been hidden by church authorities, which is precisely the point.
While sexual abuse of the young may happen within Christian and conservative circles, it is roundly condemned and punished there when it becomes known. It is because of such condemnation and punishment that these acts are hidden by the abusers.
The Left is not trying to hide this agenda at all. As has been noted above, many are not only open about it, both pedophilia and transgenderism are being celebrated by the Left and pushed toward normalization in society and through the law.
It is vital that these efforts by the Left at normalization of child sex abuse are resisted with all the fervor which we can muster. Moreover, such resistance should begin by calling upon the LORD’s grace and mercy for not resisting the Left, and pleas that He help us stand for righteousness against the fury of the Left.
Why then has this people turned away in perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit; they refuse to return. I have paid attention and listened, but they have not spoken rightly; no man relents of his evil, saying, ‘What have I done?’ Everyone turns to his own course, like a horse plunging headlong into battle. Jeremiah 8:5-6 [ESV]
