Does this smell like a smokescreen to you too? camerong’s posse of evildoers are in trouble – over scotland, the economy, the bedroom tax, ATOS… call it what you want, they need another scapegoat. “Ah, Harriet Harman. Perfect. (Strokes drugged white cat in his lap)… “Throw another bikini-clad teenager on the front page, Mr Dacre…”
It’s perfectly reasonable that the National Council for Civil Liberties would have embraced Paedophile Information Exchange in the 1970s.
A wee history lesson. In the 1970s, PIE came above ground because looking at the gains made by the gay community since the passage of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, they (the chicken-hawk community) figured, why can’t we have some of that acceptance?
And in case you’ve had your head in a bucket of fucking earth for the last couple of years, half the light entertainers from the 1970s were sticking it in kids every chance they got. Hence Operation Yewtree.
Cast your mind back (if you’re old enough. NOBODY GAVE A FUCK ABOUT PAEDOPHILIA IN THE SEVENTIES. I’ll repeat that. NOBODY GAVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT PAEDOPHILIA IN THE NINETEEN-SEVENTIES.
In those days, PIE seemed like a perfectly reasonable step forward in the evolution of human sexuality. They used the right jargon, claiming they were ‘helping’ and ‘educating’ children about the ‘mysteries of love’. (It’s a long time since I read this shite, so any paedophiles wanking themselves silly over this, please forgive me if I’m quoting your holy scriptures incorrectly, yeah?)
It was only with PIE crawling out from their fetid nest, and drawing attention to themselves that we all started to think, hang on a minute. There’s something wrNog here. And that is what begat everything from ChildLine, to Frankie Boyle being able to make jokes about incest on television.
Fun fact: prior to 1972, sexual abuse was not noted on the medical records of children.
By the late seventies, paedophiles trying to gain acceptance. (And remember, kids – PIE wasn’t comprised of ordinary Joes who happened to like the itty-bitty- titty.) Nope, it had prominent members. people in government, social work, education and I think we can accept that the performing arts were pretty well represented there too.
Watching the Newsnight interview with Harriet Harman, she’s basically being punished because there wasn’t the moral panic around kiddy-fuckery that we take for granted today.
Forty years ago was another country. And I hope to Christ we’re not all too stupid to see that.
