Is Some Pedophilia OK?

By Jeff Simpson 

Many Republicans are finally finding it safe to speak out against Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Crazy Roy Moore.   

Scott Walker: 

“But you look at things like that that come out at the last minute and you think, well of course that wasn’t true … So I don’t know if (the Moore story) is true, but if it is, obviously he should step aside,” he said.

Ron Johnson:

"If true, these allegations describe intolerable behavior and are disqualifying," Johnson said in a statement.

Paul Ryan:

“These allegations are disqualifying if true,” Ryan said in a statement released by his campaign. “Anyone who would do this to a child has no place in public office, let alone the United States Senate.” 

Not a whole lot of individual thought going on there....but wait let's compare and contrast!

Remember this guy:

Or this guy:

Or this guy:

Or this guy! 

Or even this guy:

Now let us revisit our "heroes"  

Scott Walker:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker made it unequivocally clear ahead of his speech to the Republican National Convention Wednesday that he is fully endorsing Donald Trump for president.
 "Absolutely," Walker told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren when asked if he is endorsing Trump. 

Ron Johnson:  

 Johnson said voters were looking for dramatic change and both he and Trump are on the right side of the biggest issues, like how to fight terrorism and the importance of nominating conservatives to the Supreme Court.

Paul Ryan:

Ryan’s column in his local newspaper left no doubt where he stood after speaking “at great length” with Trump since he initially declared hesitation about his candidacy.
“Through these conversations, I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives. That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall,” Ryan wrote.
The line is different for each candidate apparently.   That or our favorite Wisconsin politicians hold the Senate in higher esteem than the office of the Presidency.   
To be fair though, the very weak worded criticisms of Roy Moore, came only after he started trailing in the polls.   
it is much easier to make the decision to jump off a sinking ship!  
The GOP slogan for 2018 has to be 
Party before people!

  2. The yeah but bill clinton defense allows for any gOP anywhere to commit pedophilia or sexual assault...gotya

  3. From David Leonhardt in today's New York Times subscriber e-mail:

    "In The Atlantic, Caitlin Flanagan resurfaces a 1998 Times op-ed by Gloria Steinem, and uses it to challenge Democrats to reckon with the old accusations against Bill Clinton. Steinem defended Clinton at the time. Flanagan most certainly does not.

    Referring to Clinton, Flanagan writes: “It was a pattern of behavior; it included an alleged violent assault; the women involved had far more credible evidence than many of the most notorious accusations that have come to light in the past five weeks. But Clinton was not left to the swift and pitiless justice that today’s accused men have experienced. Rather, he was rescued by a surprising force: machine feminism.”

    My colleague Michelle Goldberg also writes about the Clinton question in today’s Times: “Democrats are guilty of apologizing for Clinton when they shouldn’t have. At the same time, looking back at the smear campaign against the Clintons shows we can’t treat the feminist injunction to ‘believe women’ as absolute.”

  4. Why am I not surprised that your defending pedophilia?

    1. Me neither. I think WHAAAA-ska's kinda into that sorta thing.

      And Davey, "Whataboutism" is a hallmark of Russian propaganda, as well as the mark of a weakling who can't defend the actions of their "team." Which makes it fitting that it's coming from your sorry, needy self.

  5. What about Walker's BFFs that were caught trolling for under age boys?

  6. As long as they are Cons Blaska will defend them. Doesn’t matter if the Con went after children. Nope - if they’re Cons - Davie turns the other way. It ok says Davie - it’s all about power. Pedophile power - right Dave.

  7. Gold Eagle: When did I defend Roy Moore? My point is that when Bill Clinton was doing his Harvey Weinstein thing, all you guys circled the wagons in his defense. Whereas Walker, Ryan, McConnell have all called for Moore to drop out.

  8. Jeff, Jake, Golden Eagles: As you might guess, I carry no brief for Roy Moore or his supporters, nor for any molester of minors. It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea....

    But on the point of clear and accurate language, against miscommunication or misinformation, I'll cite this from Wiktionary:

    "Many psychologists recommend against using the term pedophilia to denote sexual activities with children, because not all people with a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children (i.e., pedophilia) commit such acts, and child molesters often lack a strong sexual interest in prepubescent children. Furthermore, psychological texts define pedophilia as a primary or exclusive attraction towards specifically prepubescent children; primary or exclusive attraction towards pubescent children is known as hebephilia and towards post-pubescent adolescents ephebophilia. See Wikipedia for more information."
