Occupy Oakland Came Out to SUPPORT Child Sexual Exploitation and Human Trafficking?
Looks that way. Despite media claims to the contrary the Occupy movement has never had a coherent message aside from the nebulous desire to “smash capitalism” while making demands that people continue to participate in capitalist enterprise in order to subsidize Occupiers lifestyles through the taxation of activities the Occupiers claim are immoral. Otherwise the movement simply tries to line up against whatever Americans in general believe. This time Occupy Oakland may have went too far for even the most rabid armchair revolutionary as they held a protest targeting a meeting of groups trying to stop human trafficking and child sexual exploitation:
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.
If there’s one issue that unites Americans of all political stripes, it’s the sexual enslavement of children. Whatever our opinions on other issues, we all agree that sex trafficking and the prostituting of children is an outrage and a tragedy. Thus, conference attendees included liberal, moderate and conservative politicians; progressive nonprofit organizations; law enforcement groups; religious leaders; and (according to the conference Web site) “social services, medical providers, mental health, education, probation, and community-based organizations.” In short: Everybody.
Everybody, that is, except Occupy Wall Street, who somehow found a way to oppose the abolition of child sexual slavery.
The picture above (courtesy PJ Media) illustrates two points about the protest. The first is that it is rich, White, sheltered suburbanites who make up such asinine protests – the very people who knowingly are accomplices to the sex slave trade through their patronage of sites like Backpage and CraigsList.
The second and more important point is that this woman, who knows that children don’t go willingly into prostitution and that the adults these conferences are talking about are being forced into it as well, is willing to tell a lie that keeps people in sexual servitude to make her political point. In other words these protesters are defending rape for profit operations targeting the most vulnerable because it fits in some nebulous political or cultural agenda they have. These protesters just don’t care about the victims or right and wrong.
Understand these protesters are claiming that we should do nothing when some pimp is selling a child to perverts. We should do nothing when illegals are kidnapped and forced into rape camps (they call them brothels) by gangs. But the rest of us are “exploiters” and greedy?
This isn’t just about politics. Our society is increasingly inundated with voices like this, people who claim child exploitation is no big deal, that children are sexual beings etc. Often these people are involved in groups that promote a pro-pedophile agenda but rarely do we see an example of pro-pedophilia activism as clear and open as this. These people were fighting to stop people from rescuing children from sexual servitude. Is that what our society has become?
Is this a left/right issue? Are we really now choosing sides on issues of rape and slavery? Where is the condemnation from the rest of Occupy? Where’s the press coverage? Where do we stand as a nation when our privileged, spoiled dregs are fighting for the “rights” of pimps and sex slavers to force women and children into prostitution?
