The quest for civil wrongs

Brussels Journal enlightens us on life on the other side of the Atlantic:

Today paedophiles in the Netherlands announced that they are going to establish their own political party. The party, which is called Naastenliefde, Vrijheid en Diversiteit (Charity, Freedom and Diversity), will campaign for the legalisation of sex between adults and children. “Ten years ago we were ‘on speaking terms’ with society. But since [Belgian paedophile killer] Marc Dutroux there is no more discussion. All paedophiles are being put in the same box. We are being hushed up,” Ad van den Berg, the NVD co-founder, told the newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. The NVD party aims for a reduction in the age of consent in the Netherlands from 16 to 12, the legalisation of the possession of child pornography and the reduction of the minimum age for featuring in porn from 18 to 16. According to van den Berg, “rearing a child is also about introducing it to sex.” The NVD also wants to give more rights to animals and to allow ‘consensual’ sex between humans and animals.

On this side of the Pond their organization is called the North American Man/Boy Love Association, NAMBLA for short. I provide the link only so that readers can educate themselves. I do encourage you to go over and have a look, especially if you are a parent. Knowing exactly what is out there could save your child's life.

In the following section all of the ialicized quotes are taken from the essay, "Pederasty and Homosexuality", by David Thorstad. It is the text of a lecture given in Mexico City on June 26, 1998. This essay is given a central place on the NAMBLA website and appears to form their statement of purpose.

The central thrust of NAMBLA's argument is that, "Pederasty is the main form that male homosexuality has acquired throughout Western civilization - and not only in the West! Pederasty is inseparable from the high points of Western culture - ancient Greece and the Renaissance."

Note the way in which child molestation is presented almost as though it were the central axis upon which the glories of ancient Athens and Renaissance Europe turned. They lash out at the "assimilationist gay and lesbian groups" who they accuse of "seek[ing] special treatment for a special kind of person who has adopted a "gay" identity - "gay people" - rather than seeking to liberate the repressed sexual potential of everyone."

This idea of liberation of the repressed sexual potential of everyone is a major part of their stated agenda, as is the denial of the idea that sexual orientation is an inborn trait. They argue for an "inherent bisexuality of human beings" and "that younger and older males were naturally attracted to each other and that pederasty was a positive good for society because it helped to socialize young males and provided them with a necessary sexual outlet, thereby reducing undesirable social phenomena such as unwanted pregnancies and prostitution. A few (Hans Bl├╝her, for example, famous for his book on the Wandervogel movement) believed that pederasty and male bonding provided a basis for a stronger nation and state. . . "

It would seem that handing your 12 year-old boy over to the local pedophile will pave the way to a Utopian future. What did we learn about Utopian futures this past Sunday?

There is a strong tendency to view themselves as victims (in the USA what else is new) and to wrap their movement in the mantle of the civil rights and women's rights movements. The "persecuted minority" rhetoric reaches it zenith here, "life and survival for men and boys who love each other is becoming extremely dangerous. To be an active pederast in the United States today is like being a Jew in Nazi Germany. The United States is becoming - perhaps already has become - a police state. The backlash against the increased visibility of homosexuality since the Stonewall Riots in 1969 is striking pederasts most severely. Thousands are currently in jail in the United States for purely consensual relationships, and the gay movement will not lift a finger or a voice in protest. All the liberation movements of the 1960s blacks, women, homosexuals, the left - have either moved to the right or, in the case of the left, virtually disappeared. The women's movement and the gay movement have fallen in love with the state and seem no longer able to differentiate between their friends and their enemies. In fact, these days, the gay movement in the United States functions more as an adjunct of the police than as a movement for liberation. Nowadays, I sometimes feel as if I need to be liberated from assimilationist gay men and lesbians as much as I do from heterosupremacy, capitalism, and police repression."

Apologies to anyone who is now cleaning vomit off their keyboard.

Also, why am I not surprised that capitalism is viewed as just as much an enemy as “hetrosupremacy”?

To sum up. In NAMBLA's world pedophiles are noble souls seeking the enlightenment of society and the uplifting of all persons of all ages. They are engaged in an epic civil rights struggle which is an inseparable part of the greater civil rights movement. Man/boy sex is emotionally and physically healthy and opens a cornucopia of social benefits for any culture wise enough to normalize it.

I need to go out and get another case of .308 for my Garand.
