8.1 on the Cognitive Dissonance scale [Darleen Click]

The Occupy movement, the darling of Democrats and their fellow travelers in the media, “famous” for filth, vandalism and rape, are also in favor of child sex-trafficking.

On Wednesday, June 13, members of the Occupy movement protested against a conference dedicated to combatting child sex trafficking — thus, the Occupiers in essence were coming out in favor of one of society’s most loathsome moral crimes.

The protesters mostly were members of Occupy Oakland Patriarchy, a group within the overall Occupy movement tasked with overthrowing our civilization’s “patriarchy.”

The conference which so infuriated them was called HEAT Watch, short for the National Human Exploitation And Trafficking Watch Conference. [...]

The Occupy narrative was very convoluted and can’t be coherently summarized in just a few images — in fact, they remained pretty incoherent even with all the space in the world to explain themselves — but we’ll get started with a few of their signs. This one said “End Police Terror Against Minor + Adult Sex Workers.”

Let’s say I’m not surprised that factions of the Left are pro-pedophile. Nothing can shred the stability of family structure and society as destroying the security and innocence of children.

Anyone who has followed the antics passing for scholarship among Left-feminists know the claims to be “sex-positive” consistently follow a kind of one-upswomynship in declaring this or that further-from-normative-sexual-practice ‘taboo’ as merely a product of The Patriarchy.

The protesters’ main banner said “Fucking to survive is life under capitalism.” This succinctly sums up the nearly incomprehensible cognitive dissonance at the core of the Occupy Oakland Patriarchy philosophy. They manage to hold two mutually exclusive thoughts simultaneously:

1. We are sex workers and proud of it, and there is nothing wrong with prostitution, so stop oppressing us with your prudish laws; and
2. The only reason we are compelled to have this degrading and unpleasant profession is that capitalism forces people to exchange labor for money — only a total anti-capitalist revolution can put an end to prostitution.

The incoherency of Left “ideology” is plain. It has only one goal, the substitution of The State for God. The means to the end of Liberty can be chilling or comical (read through the #SayVagina hashtag on Twitter where left-feminists are engaged in unintentional self-parody) and it attempts to appeal through pure emotion.

However, there are some lines that even emotion cannot erase. Forward with Pederasty! is not exactly a Winning! campaign slogan.

  1. BTW, before someone wants to derail the thread because I use “God” – my intention was the concept of God as understood by the Founding Fathers – The Creator of inherent rights and all the things that derive from that concept.

  2. It has only one goal, the substitution of The State for God.

    I think their goal is to remake society. Year One shit. That anything – anything – considered to be a value in the current one must be destroyed. Marriage. Morality. Family structure and stability. God is merely one more thing to be destroyed.

  3. Heh. It’s a tricksy bit of business we Americans engage in, but we’re mostly inured to making the symbolic transcendent substitution(s) and moving on. Sometimes (in other less pragmatic contexts, I hasten to add), it’s good to delve around a little in the bowels of the building to see if we can figure out how the foundational bits work and what they may portend of themselves. For the most part, though, we seem to be more often concerned with consequences than with antecedents.

  4. sdferr

    unfortunately we have to deal with the consequences first because so many people are ignorant of the antecedents.

    It’s kind of backwards engineering we have to do.

  5. In large part, you say true, for the adults anyhow. The provisional exemption is what, I suppose, we think ought to be under way among the youths in school, presumably in process of ridding themselves of their ignorance of any acquaintance with our antecedents. And there, again in my opinion, we fall far short, generalizing that ‘we’ to our whole people. We haven’t insisted our ignorant youths spend significant time in company of serious question and examination of those antecedents (and their antecedents all the less!), only to send these students out into the world to deal with the consequences near wholly unequipped to understand from whence they came, and therefore all the more easily rid of any reliance on them. Pity.

  6. I can’t help thinking that the Forward With Pederasty! crowd isn’t so much about a political movement as it is about people being seen as edgy and shocking the squares. I’m reminded of this old Onion article.

    Seriously, I think the only proper response to this crowd is to point and laugh.

  7. Surely these folks have begun collecting money for a Free Jerry Sandusky! fund.

  8. Forward with Pederasty! is not exactly a Winning! campaign slogan.

    You just have to phrase it correctly.

    As ‘the children’ are constantly demanding that we further erode our freedoms in service to an ever-growing public sector — at least, according to politicians of both stripes — I think there’d be some sympathy for “Fuck the Children!” as a rallying cry.

    Just not, you know, literally.

  10. Raise Your Own Damn Kids!
    (and keep ‘em the hell away from mine)

    I think that’s a winner.

  11. Trading sex for food is so much free-er than trading sex for money.

  12. I can’t help thinking that the Forward With Pederasty! crowd isn’t so much about a political movement as it is about people being seen as edgy and shocking the squares.

    You are probably right. Unfortunately it doesn’t shock me as much as make me equal parts ill and enraged.

  13. Seriously, I think the only proper response to this crowd is to point and laugh shoot.

    FTFY, Squid.
