What would you say if a popular website was featuring prison romance tales written by admitted, convicted pedophiles? You may argue that it is the website’s right to publish what they want, but what if those stories were backed by the likes of George Soros through his Open Society Foundation?
The article My Gay Prison Gang Fights Neo-Nazis recounts the apparently true story of a prisoner who sees Nazis beating up child molesters – or Chomos, as they are referred to – as a joining ceremony for the Aryans. The author says how he would ignore this violence as he himself was a large man who faced no such danger. His tale then becomes a romance when he meets a “beautiful small boy” named Peter who was also facing child sex abuse charges.
Ultimately, Peter dies through prison violence, and this is where the author decides:
“When one person is persecuted or abused, and there is something I can do about it, especially if that person is my gay or trans brother or sister, it is my problem.”
Dennis Mintun, the author of the article, is currently serving 45 years in Idaho State Correctional Institution for three counts of sexual abuse on children under the age of 16. If only someone with his sentiments for protecting the abused was around while he himself was abusing children.
The Soros Connection
The piece appeared on Vox and was published “in collaboration” with the Marshall Project, a non-profit focused on the criminal justice system. Funders of the project include a long list of prominent left-leaning organizations including, of course, Soros’ Open Society.
Not to single out George Soros, a wealth of other prominent Great and Good have also put their money into this enterprise including:
- The Rockefeller Family Fund
- John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation
And around 50 other famed family foundations. Some of these being the same folk who once sponsored Masterpiece Theater.
While it is certainly possible that a non-profit news organization that “seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice,” may seem like a worthy endeavor, asking the public to see a convicted, admitted pedophile as an anti-hero in the fight against prison gang Nazis is perhaps a step too far.
Are we supposed to empathize with the plight of a man in a violent prison system? Or perhaps we are being called upon to unite with people of all “persuasions” in the fight against neo-Nazis? The positioning of this monster as the hero in his own tale is just wrong on so many levels. But, of course, many Soros funded projects are designed to bring down traditional civilizational barriers in an effort to usher in the billionaire’s personal version of a Brave New World.
Mintun’s crimes were serious. He was not “persecuted” for his proclivities, he was prosecuted, and convicted for sexually interfering with young boys aged seven, nine, and ten.
Pushing a Narrative
What we are seeing is an effort by well-funded groups to make pedophilia more acceptable in the public sphere.
Recently, a TEDx presentation was withdrawn after a public backlash. The talk was titled “Pedophilia Is A Natural Sexual Orientation,” and sought to make us feel pity for a young man named Jonas. The speaker, Mirjam Heine, begins her talk:
“Jonas has a secret which he thinks he cannot share with anyone — not even with his best friend or with his parents. He’s just too afraid of anger, rejection and repulsion. Jonas knows that he has to suppress his sexual drive for his entire life. And he also knows that there will never be a loving and fulfilling partnership that he can enter. Because Jonas is a pedophile.”
Again, this is attempting to make us feel pity for someone because he may never have a “fulfilling partnership” or be loved in the way he wishes.
The New York Times ran an op-ed in 2014, titled Pedophilia: A Disorder, Not a Crime, in which the author argued that society is doing a disservice to pedophiles who have not committed any crimes. Yet she also states that “It stands to reason that a pedophile should not be hired as a grade-school teacher.” To suggest on the one hand that these people are being unfairly stigmatized, while on the other saying that you shouldn’t let them anywhere near children appears a paradox that sympathizers have yet to solve.
The minds behind this project to make us see pedophiles as victims of genetics and a cruel society do not propose answers. By doing so, they avoid putting forth arguments that could be countered. They just want to sow doubt in the hearts of ordinary folk.
When destruction of social norms becomes the driving force behind an organization, it is society, community, and ultimately, individuals that suffer. In this case, it appears the future victims of this grand project are to be the children.
