As a former reporter for the Establishment media (Associated Press) I am particularly sensitive to indications that the media are using their power to subtly change minds and overcome traditional objections to forms of moral depravity. This usually begins with subtle changes and cues that emanate from executive editors at high levels of the corporate media.
Examine the clipping above. It was published in this morning’s (July 17, 2014) Spokesman-Review newspaper (Spokane, Washington), p. A3. The article concerns the arrest of child pornography supporters (“pedophiles”) including “doctors, lawyers” and ex-police officers.
The subtle processing is found in the second paragraph: “…sensational stories of the sexual abuse of minors regularly headline the tabloids, which some critics accuse of whipping up public hysteria over the issue.”
Notice the article doesn’t say child pornography is harmless; only that it has been “sensationalized” by disreputable “tabloids,” which “whip up public hysteria over the issue.”
Observe that the viewing of child pornography is described as an “issue,” not a crime. The article never refers to it as a crime. Apparently, viewing child pornography is not a sensational transgression in itself. It has been “sensationalized” by disreputable “tabloids.” Too much concern about child pornography is indicative of “hysteria.”
This article would seem to be the first step in a measured campaign to soften up the American people so that we will approve of the decriminalization of child pornography, just as we were softened up for the decriminalization of sodomy and the legal marriage of sodomites.
This processing is almost always gradual and understated, so as not to frighten the targets of the brainwashing into the realization that they are in fact being conditioned to abandon their traditional morality and “keep up with the times.”
How likely is it that our “free and impartial” media would add to an ADL report on a putative “anti-semitic crime wave,” a statement about how “sensational tales of anti-semitism are regularly issued by Zionist organizations which some critics accuse of whipping up public hysteria over the issue.” Imagine the outcry from the Israeli lobby and the thought cops.
Will there be a preemptive outcry from We the People against what the media are starting to initiate with regard to the international cult of child molestation? You can be sure that within that cult are many extremely powerful people who would be delighted to see enforcement relaxed, as a first step in a systematic journey toward the social acceptance of child pornography in an increasingly bestial American society.
