Classic virtue signaling trigger manipulation. The Left is now being pulled into defending pedophiles by hardcore SJWs at Salon:
I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine. My pedophilia essay outraged the right. My attempt to humanize a real problem brought out their nastiest rage
“I’m A Pedophile, But Not a Monster”
was published last week and it has been a whirlwind since. I’ve spent
days doing radio interviews, even an appearance on TV (HLN’s Dr. Drew on Call), but mainly just answering the hundreds of emails that have poured in. Yes, the vast majority of them have been supportive.
there has been a visible backlash, predominantly from the political
right, in private it has been a different story. This piece has
generated debate and controversy all over the world, well beyond my
wildest imaginings. When I first approached Salon with the idea, my
editor was receptive, but throughout the process of refining the piece,
she asked me if I really understood what I was getting into. Her concern
was palpable. I assured her I did, which was mostly true; I had no idea
it would blow up as quickly as it did, and the bigger it got, the more
of a tempest it became. Even so, I have no regrets. I knew when I wrote
it that it was going to be an important piece, something unique and
necessary. And so it was.
Remember, SJWs are all about the Narrative. And what we’re seeing here, as many have recognized, is the SJWs deciding that it’s time to move on from Bruce Jenner and “transphobia” in order to start normalizing pedophilia. Because he “outraged the Right” and brought out “their nastiest rage”, that is the signal that his position is the virtuous one. As for the pedophile’s claims to have never touched a child sexually, do recall the truism: SJWs always lie.
We will see all the same arguments that we’ve seen since homosexuality was normalized. It’s not their fault, love is love, no one is harmed, you’re a bigot and on the wrong side of history if you dare to judge them on the basis of a sky fairy, and so forth. These are the early days, and we’ll know they’ve been officially normalized in SJW eyes when McRapey hires Nickerson to do some art for him in order to signal his virtue.
But we are not the previous generation and we do not fall so readily for their moral modification sequence or the ever-shifting narrative. Our answer is a straightforward one. We reject tolerance, we reject pedophilia, and we reject pedophiles. They are monsters and there is no place for them in any rational or moral society.
