And Just Like That …

And Just Like That, Protecting Children Became Right-Wing

Thanks to Netflix’s decision to stream Maïmouna Doucouré’s “touching,” “explorative,” and “feminist” work, “Cuties,” protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation has become a Right-Wing thing according to many Democrats and likely Democrats.

Of course, given much their rhetoric, this essentially indicates that protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation isn’t a Left-Wing thing anymore. But then, that’s not that much of a surprise, given their views on sexual orientation and the fact that Americans very much hate pedophiles.

Or maybe it’s Right-Wing Only now because of President Trump, or rather. the Left’s insane hatred for him and those who voted him into office.

Yeah, TURDS Before Kids

Yeah, it’s a simple, sad fact that, while it’s possible that the Left is still against the sexual exploitation of children, it’s not their priority and, given the choice between protecting kids and railing against President Trump, his administration, and the 10s of millions of his supporters, the kids lose.

The truly sickening part is that many, but by no means all, on the Left will likely turn to supporting pedophilia just because we’re against it and they don’t want to agree with us on anything.

On “Cuties” Itself

I can’t personally judge the film since I haven’t seen it and have no intention of doing so. Frankly, a movie about an 11-year-old French-Senegalese girl rather poorly navigating the onset of puberty as part of a strict Muslim household on the outskirts of Paris has little to nothing for me to identify with or have interest in. And, beyond that, some of it would sicken me.

What I can directly speak to is Netflix’s poster/trailer for “Cuties” – which I’m neither posting nor linking to – being the primary source for triggering the widespread backlash against the film. It really made the film look like “spank bank” material for pedophiles.

Not one of Netflix’s finer marketing moments and something that makes it so that they deserve whatever negative consequences that get since stupid should be painful since pain is the only way to teach the stupid.

DISCLOSURE: Years ago I worked with a Children’s Advocacy/Protection organization that partnered with the FBI and Interpol. I actually put my “InfoSec” skills to use directly hunting down pedophiles online, gathering evidence, and turning them over to the authorities for prosecution.

That was a couple of very hard years which, after a lot of what I saw, seriously colored my view of anything even close to child pornography.

She’s Quite Right

The Democrat party’s choice of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as the Chair of the Democratic National Committee was an “interesting” one. She manages to combine Far Left ideology, gross stupidity, and a fondness for speaking out loud into a sum that is far, far less of value or merit than even it’s component parts. It’s truly amazing.

Take her recent outburst on illegal immigration as an example:

“We have 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country that are part of the backbone of our economy and this is not only a reality but a necessity,” she said. “And that it would be harmful – the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all.”

— Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D.-Fla.)
Chairwoman, Democratic National Committee

She’s quite right. The GOP does believe that illegal immigration is a crime and that illegal immigrants should be shipped back to their own countries after they served the appropriate prison sentences for their crimes, which often include identity theft and document fraud along with the crime of illegally entering the United States.

She’s quite right. We have approximately 12 million illegal immigrants in this country that are part of the backbone of our economy and this is not only a reality but a necessity if we are to continue to operate large segments of our economy in the manner that we’ve always been accustomed to.

Of course, most people would actually understand that any phrase with the adjective “illegal” in it would be, even discounting the concomitant infractions, criminal in nature. Apparently not the DNC’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz though. She seems to prefer to portray being shock at the Republicans wanting to protect our borders and enforce America’s laws.

That the DNC’s Chairwoman, representing the Democrat Party, has a problem with- and chooses to vilify the GOP for wanting to enforce American immigration laws is of only minor concern though. It’s to be expected; our culture is rife with phrases that explain the Dems’ support for illegal immigration – phrases such as, “Undocumented Democrat” and “D.O.A – Democrat On Arrival.”

What's The Password? Democrat Voter Drive

This, however, is a very small matter and, as a moral failing, pales beside Wasserman-Schultz’s greater evil, her support for human trafficking and de facto slavery.

It is a sad and shameful fact that segments of America’s economy, especially the agriculture, construction, manufacturing, and low-end service segments, are heavily based upon the use of a labor pool that is paid a mere pittance and worked in a fashion that no American would tolerate and that would be illegal if it were applied to Americans.

The average illegal immigrant, often working as much as 70 hours a week, makes just under $6000 per annum and has no benefits whatsoever. Nor do they have any practical recourse to abusive or unsafe working conditions. That is slavery in a very real sense, though few illegal immigrants are branded or collared.

I loath and despise illegal immigrants because of the crime, disease, and filth so many of them bring to my country, but that doesn’t mean I condone their enslavement in all but name.

That the DNC’s Chairwoman thinks that this is a necessary part of the backbone of our economy is beyond reprehensible and disgusting. I’m forced to wonder if the Democrat Party has, in last century and a half, moved as far from being “the Party of slavery” as we’ve been previously repeatedly told.
