A fisherman casts his bait into the water and catches a fish. How many fish are in the pond? How big are the biggest fish? What other types of bait are the fish willing to take?
I’m thinking about pizzagate and pedophiles and the dissonance in public opinion. Why does everyone so readily and offhandedly dismiss pizzagate outright? Why is it so hard to accept that there may actually be such dark things at the highest levels of authority and power?
Why is it that the average man is constantly under suspicion of being a pedophile? No one questions a woman sitting on a park bench watching children in the playground but eyebrows are raised (at the least) if it’s a man sitting there. And yet no one applies that same level of suspicion to the clergy or government officials. People still implicitly trust them.
There was an uproar in the 1980’s because some children in preschool claimed they were victims of satanic abuse by their teachers. And yet when there was a story in 1989 about a child prostitution ring with ties to the White House it fades into the night. I remember seeing the headline and reading the article in the newspaper when it first came out, and it’s always bothered me that nothing came of it.
And what about that ring that was broken up a few years ago in… Brussels? Austria? Belgium? I would swear that a few years ago I read about some sort of sex trafficking / pedophilia group getting broken up in the EU but I can’t find anything about it now. I’ll link to it when I do find a reference to what I’m talking about.
Is Biden creepy?
I’m not sure now. My gut response is yes. The way he manhandled little girls is creepy. But maybe I’m succumbing to the current bias against men. Maybe he was just being “grandparently”?
