It doesn’t matter what side you take politically, even if you’ve decided to stand in the middle of the aisle. Everyone agrees the USA is swimming in turbulent waters. The media bears much of the blame in this regard. Its double standards, condescension, and false narratives are appalling.
The talking heads shoved the Rittenhouse story down our throats, managed to get pertinent facts wrong, and then declared his acquittal another triumph of “white supremacy”. Please recall that Rittenhouse didn’t harm a single black person.
On the other hand, the Waukesha Christmas parade slaughter, wherein Darrell E. Brooks—a black man well acquainted with the criminal justice system—is charged with multiple homicides, and the media elites dare not mention his race. If Brooks is found guilty, should white people—including 8 year old boys and grandmothers—take this as a harbinger that they are unsafe around black men—especially those out on bail and driving an SUV?
But as tragic as both these incidents are, there is a federal trial that the media isn’t granting much publicity—that of Ghislaine Maxwell—who is charged with sex trafficking. Do you want to see insidiousness and privilege in full view? Maxwell and her dearly departed friend, Jeffrey Epstein, are prime examples. And the powerful men who allegedly played houseguest on Epstein’s isle of debauchery fit the description, as well.
But it gets worse. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has evidence that at least 10 of its employees and contractors committed sexual crimes involving children—one of whom was 2 years old at the time. A solitary individual was charged. This is evil to the core.
Interface the CIA story with the Maxwell-Epstein saga and you witness a society that is not only in decline, but has also lost any hope of claiming the moral high ground. Children are the most vulnerable demographic in any nation. If America cannot—or will not—protect helpless children, then the future is bleaker than any of us imagine.
Those who victimize the young do well to recall Jesus’ chilling words in Matthew 18.6— But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Maybe the CIA should’ve deposited the perverts it protected to one of those infamous “black sites” we hear so much about.
It’s amazing that even with all its troubles, the USA is the preferred destination of those wanting a better life for their children. But we should warn them— rattlesnakes are slithering in the playground, and they have high powered attorneys.
