Cloaking Device

REFERENCE having already been made below to the national broadcaster protecting the identity and activities of a left-wing rioter, two other examples of this culturally entrenched fig leafing are worth noting. Last week, abortion ghouls throughout America (and the sad people who ape them in Australia) were excited to learn that a hitherto contested claim about a 10 year-old Ohio girl raped, impregnated and deprived of an abortion in post-Roe America was two-thirds true. The last bit was embellishment to generate outrage, re-tweets, donations to Planned Parenthood and motivation to vote for Democrats in November’s mid-terms.

But the crime did occur and the perpetrator has been charged. Joe Biden – accused of showering with his own daughter (by her) and dubbed “Pedo Pete” by his son – voiced teleprompter-assisted ‘anger’ about the unavailability of ‘care’ for the girl so as to incite his party’s blood-splattered street campaigners to ever more dangerous loathing of the Supreme Court. Predictably, the ABC pounced on the confirmation but left out the name of the culprit. That’s because Gerson Fuentes, 27, is an illegal immigrant. The violated girl has no legitimate case against any judges but she does have a case against Biden who waved Fuentes into the country.

The other example of identity censorship can be seen in yesterday’s daft conspiracy theory (click above) about why abortion came to be controversial in America. Emily Clark relies entirely on the opinions of Dartmouth professor of religion Randall Balmer and associate professor Chelsea Ebin of Centre College in Kentucky. Ebin is an ‘expert’ in the fake field of far right studies and historian Balmer is an Episcopalian ‘priest’ who nevertheless ran for a seat in the Connecticut House of Reps in 2003 as a Democrat. Neither is wrong because of who they are but the ABC’s readers should be apprised of the fact that both are nutty partisans with axes to grind.

    “abortion ghouls” and “his party’s blood-splattered street campaigners” and “nutty partisans with axes to grind”. These are people who disagree with your opinion?

  2. Buccaneer says:

    What a terrible article from the abc, to distill it they think that if only they win the abortion argument, the religious right will cease to exist.

    There is such a lack of charity and character in political debate in the US, perhaps this is because somehow people like Chelsea Ebin can get funding to essentially regurgitate political talking points as research.

  3. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    No, they are accurate descriptions.

    False equivalence, yet again.

  4. jupes says:

    Yet another example of the ABC making its viewers dumber. All day, every day.

  5. Buccaneer says:

    Interestingly, had Evangelicals in the UK and the US not won the case for abolition of slavery, a movement vociferously opposed by the organised left including democrats, the guardian and the New York Times, any conversation about segregation would be moot. https://www.oxforddnb.com/view/10.1093/ref:odnb/9780198614128.001.0001/odnb-9780198614128-e-96075#odnb-9780198614128-e-96075-div1-d137719e997

    Gallingly, segregation itself was a rearguard action by the left to retain social hierarchy post slavery.

    Well colour me surprised, the ABC reports only that part of a story which suits their far-left agenda and omits very uncomfortable, key facts (for them) which don’t!
    But the ABC is not biased!

  7. Ed Case says:

    Interestingly, had Evangelicals in the UK and the US not won the case for abolition of slavery …
    Wilberforce was viewed as an Anglican grifter in his day and cartoons lampooning his hypocrisy were widely seen.
    The end result:
    The British Parliament borrowed a huge sum in Paris in 1837 to compensate the Slaveowners for loss of their property.
    Wilberforce was also involved in the creation of Sierra Leone, an expedient decision if ever there was one.
    Terms of the Debt are lost, but it wasn’t repaid in full until 2015.

    And also because his name gives away the game, the entire disaster involves non Whites
    [apart from the abortionist, presumably] and their often alien cultural practices.

  9. Boambee John says:

    Dick Ed

    And also because his name gives away the game, the entire disaster involves non Whites
    [apart from the abortionist, presumably] and their often alien cultural practices.

    You do seem to have a “thing” about non-white people and cultures. Perhaps you could take it elsewhere?

  10. Buccaneer says:

    Were those cartoons published in anti slavery tomes like the guardian and nyt per chance? Please provide some examples.

    Given the history of piracy in the Caribbean and the number of slaves used on those islands, the prospect of conflict should the property that slaves then represented be legislated away without compensation seemed pretty certain. There is also the small matter that the US ended up fighting a civil war with the abolition of slavery as a key theme.

    The British also fought a war against the Ashanti, to stop the practice of leveraging conflict to sell the vanquished into bondage. All inconvenient truths for their ABC that make this narrative look simply like another of their truth bending exercises designed to make the people they see as ideological enemies look to be evil.

  11. Tel says:

    Lots of strange questions come up with this case. First and most important: Why wait six weeks? The mother must have had some idea her daughter was raped … you would expect them to go straight to a doctor or hospital immediately.

    Second, and even weirder: Why was the rapist only charged after Joe Biden started talking about this case, and it became a public flurry? How the heck did this end up a Biden talking point, when at the time he talked about it, there was no criminal charge, no public police report, and the case was absolutely NOT in the news?

    It gets worse … the abortion doctor lied about the rape and reduced the age of the culprit by 10 years (pretending he was a minor), whilst filling in paperwork for the Indiana Department of Health. Meanwhile the mum was visited by reporters and she made an attempt to protect the rapist (WTF?!?!?) … even though the guy has given a statement admitting guilt.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ohio-10-year-old-alleged-illegal-immigrant-rapist-27-listed-minor-abortionists-report-state

    My interpretation is they travelled interstate in order to find a discrete doctor, willing to cover things up and very likely the mum never was planning to go to the authorities and report the rape at all. If this issue had not been loaded into Joe Biden’s teleprompter … likely the abortion would have been the end of the matter and the whole incident covered up, good and clean like.

    It is a dreadfully unfortunate way of proving that the “Christian Conservative” lobby were correct … they pointed out that people doing bad things are always looking for ways to hide the evidence … and abortion is appallingly convenient for such people. It does make one wonder how many others have been like this, but never made public?

  12. Ed Case says:

    Wilberforce was well known for being a rich Parliamentarian more concerned with the interests of wealthy Planters in the Caribbean than desperately poor people in England who were being hanged for the theft of a loaf of bread.
    That’s not in dispute.

    There was no likelihood of conflict should the Planters be forced to go without Compensation, since Slavery was on the way out anyway since it didn’t stack up financially.

    Where did the freed slaves go?
    Well, if they were lucky, they just kept on working the Sugar Plantations whose owners were fast friends of Wilberforce dating back to his youth.
    Otherwise, they starved.
    So the Planters won both ways.
    There is also the small matter that the US ended up fighting a civil war with the abolition of slavery as a key theme.
    No.
    The Civil War was over the Confederates intention to secede from the Union.
    Everything else was window dressing.
    As a matter of fact, there was an Anti Negro Riot in New York City in 1863, troops were sent from the Battle Of Gettysburg to put it down.
    Over 2,000 rioters and others were killed.
    So, the facts were:
    1. Slavery was uneconomic, mechanisation was making the Slaves superfluous
    2. The North was pretty Anti Negro, they didn’t want them.
    3. The Southerners had always lived with the Negroes, understood their ways, and
    accepted them and their ways.
    Gallingly, segregation itself was a rearguard action by the left to retain social hierarchy post slavery

    No.
    The Antebellum Social Hierarchy was gone.
    Reconstruction had been a disaster, the result of the 1876 Prez Election was disputed, so as a compromise, the Republicans withdrew the Troops from the South, Jim Crow was implemented, and the Negroes essentially governed and policed their own communities.
    That was popular in the North as well, since they didn’t want the Negroes at all, while the Southerners didn’t have a problem, so long as Negroes weren’t ruling over them, as had happened under Reconstruction.

  13. C.L. says:

    Ohio 10-year-old’s alleged illegal immigrant rapist, 27, was listed as minor in abortionist’s report to state.

    Far out. So it looks like she was as sympathetic to the illegal immigrant as she was to the girl.

    My interpretation is they travelled interstate in order to find a discrete doctor, willing to cover things up and very likely the mum never was planning to go to the authorities and report the rape at all.

    Yes. And it seems mum was trading her daughter for sustenance provided by Fuentes – who may have been doing other things on the side besides the menial employment authorities have become aware of.

    Whatever your view, sensible people should be able to agree that states should not create a law on cases as hard, rare and dark as this. Just don’t.

  14. Ed Case says:

    It does make one wonder how many others have been like this, but never made public?

    A commenter on Unz opined that the mother likely turned a blind eye to her boyfriends conduct with her daughter [or even sanctioned it!] in the hopes of hanging on to him.
    That sounds the more likely scenario.

  15. Old School Conservative says:

    Just a minor segue caused by seeing the phrase “the fake field of far right studies”:
    NSW Dept of Corrections are training their officers to recognise far right extremists.
    Apparently they are tattooing themselves with frogs, “88”, and crosses.

    Nah, don’t bother.
    Far Right Extremists are easily identified when the mum and dad take the kids to church on Sunday. Much easier than looking amongst the prison population.

  16. C.L. says:

    An excellent analysis of the rape story and how/why it was managed the way it was:

    The Future Democratic Voters Project and the 10-Year-Old Ohio Rape Victim.

    A must-read summary, in fact.

  17. Chris M says:

    mum was trading her daughter for sustenance provided by Fuentes

    The mum is pregnant with him also. Seems quite a prolific breeder, useful to replace locals.

  18. Buccaneer says:

    Magically, mechanisation made slaves redundant before the invention of the internal combustion engine, bollox. You wilfully ignore the proclamation of emancipation as though it meant nothing. Those horrid racist northerners just ignored it and kept sending their children to fight and die.

    There were plenty of negroes in the north, read some books instead of Marxist self serving revisionism. Woodrow Wilson wasn’t really that happy about them working in the same office.

    Reconstruction failed and the resultant Jim Crow happened because the Dems regained power in the south and suppressed Republicans and Blacks from organising and voting. To gloss over that is egregious.

    None of this is particularly important. Because, the fact remains, even if slavery was uneconomic (there were plenty of slavers that thought it was), it was the evangelicals that identified and started a movement to say it was unethical and drove that to a conclusion. Pretending that evangelicals suddenly recanted because they now believed in segregation is rubbish and revisionist Marxist rubbish designed to get them off the hook.

    Further, the British ran naval operations to stop slave ships for 60 years.

    Why are Marxists so keen to rewrite this history? Well it’s hard to claim the high ground with minorities when you were the ones holding their heads underwater.

    How do we know the British abolitionists were sincere? Well, there is a big hint in our history, Governor Phillip was adamant we would not make the same mistakes that were made in the US. Slavery was specifically banned. He took a spear to rectify relations with the natives, sadly, the sins of others could not be expunged by that act.

  19. Lee says:

    “abortion ghouls” and “his party’s blood-splattered street campaigners” and “nutty partisans with axes to grind”. These are people who disagree with your opinion?

    The truth hurts.

  20. False Equivalence says:

    Lee: There were people at Trump’s 6/1 rally with RWDS – Right Wing Death Squad – tags on their camo jackets. These are nutty partisans. Certainly more so than a university professor or a person who stood as a Democrat one would imagine.

  21. dover_beach says:

    The other example of identity censorship can be seen in yesterday’s daft conspiracy theory (click above) about why abortion came to be controversial in America.

    Monty tried this on last week. Now I know where he lifted the absurd claim from.
    Abortion was so uncontroversial before Roe it was illegal in most states. That these ghouls want to pretend the opposite is indicative of the chutzpah of liberals.

  22. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    Is there any, any at all, evidence that they were armed? Think of some of the insane things that lefties have put on T-shirts and placards, those are the equivalent on each side, but the crazy lefties are regarded as normal, even moderate by their side.

  23. Lee says:

    Lee: There were people at Trump’s 6/1 rally with RWDS – Right Wing Death Squad – tags on their camo jackets.

    Did they actually harm anyone or do any damage, as opposed to the violent, far-left, BLM/Antifa rioting mobs during 2020?
    I thought not.

  24. Ed Case says:

    … it was the evangelicals that identified and started a movement to say it was unethical and drove that to a conclusion.
    Meanwhile, in England, the Country these arseholes actually lived in, children were hanged for stealing a loaf of bread.
    A conclusion, you say?
    The conclusion was the British Parliament raising a Loan to pay off the Slavers of such magnitude, that it wasn’t repaid in full for 178 years.

    Pretending that evangelicals suddenly recanted because they now believed in segregation is rubbish and revisionist Marxist rubbish designed to get them off the hook.

    That’s a Strawman, and along with your ad homs. indicates you’re an arsehole too.

  25. Boambee John says:

    The king of the irrelevant strawman, Dickless Ed, complains that it is unfair for others to use his tactics.

  26. Buccaneer says:

    Way to completely lose an argument Ed, children were also sold into indentured servitude. Expecting the people of the past to remedy all their social ills at once is a bit much, Particularly for some who just lost it so spectacularly you felt you needed to call me an arsehole.

    Accusations of straw man argument when you’ve spent the whole thread playing distraction is pretty rich too. Grow up.

  27. rosie says:

    Monty made an extraordinary scene about the barbarity of a young girl being driven some distance to be given a pill by a doctor, to be followed up by taking another pill taken at home.
    In the context of being raped by her mother’s partner, it was a piffling additional burden, completely dwarfed by completely losing her privacy because of the unauthorised public disclosure.
    I wonder why the abortion doctor thought it was okay to destroy this particular little girl’s privacy.

  28. False Equivalence says:

    Boambee/Lee: I am sure you’re right. The people adopting the tag Right Wing Death Squad intended no harm at all. They clearly are pacifists in search of truth and justice. And contrary to the evidence of the Secret Service, no guns were carried and no police were injured. The TV images and so on are fake and the whole thing is a giant fantasy. As is the continuing slaughter of people by gun carrying fruit bats. Not to mention the 10 year old rape victim. All of it. Fake.

  29. rosie says:

    How many people were killed by Right Wing Death Squad members on 6 January?
    That’s right.
    None.
    Love how progressives are all of a sudden concerned about injured police.
    As for the 10 year old, knew we weren’t getting the full story, and have been proven right.

  30. False Equivalence says:

    Rosie: facts. You just love them. Impressive!

    BTW, I agree. We should have more people out and about proclaiming their membership of Right Wing Death Squads. It’s an extremely healthy and safe pastime and reflects well on their mental health and balanced approach.

  31. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    And contrary to the evidence of the Secret Service, no guns were carried and no police were injured.

    There were guns, one was used by the Capitol Police to kill an unarmed protester.

    Feel free to correct me, but isn’t the carriage of firearms in public by non-official persons illegal in Washington DC? How many of those carrying gums were arrested and charged? None? Why not? Maybe, like the Officer Sicknick allegations, it was all made up?

    PS, given the emerging details about the 10-year old’s case, best you not rely on it for your argument.

  32. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    BTW, I agree. We should have more people out and about proclaiming their membership of Right Wing Death Squads. It’s an extremely healthy and safe pastime and reflects well on their mental health and balanced approach.

    Do you mean like all those people running around dressed in black, wearing masks, who behave like a bunch of fascists, and claim to be anti-fascist? Now, that’s an extremely healthy and safe pastime and reflects well on their mental health and balanced approach.

  33. False Equivalence says:

    Boambee: I agree. We need more masked fascists on the streets. Preferably armed with military grade weapons. I prefer the RWDS branding, but if you like the black, I’m fine with that too. It’s definitely the way to go: hate, division, violence. What’s to lose?

  34. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    Can I take your comment at 1256 as an unequivocal condemnation of, not just the so-called RWDS, but also Ante-fa (pre-cursors to fascism), BLM, Extinction Rebellion, and all of the more rabid enviro groups?

  35. False Equivalence says:

    Boambee: suggest re 117 remark that you acquire sarcasm detector.

  36. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    I’ll take that as a “NO”.

  37. False Equivalence says:

    It’s definitely the way to go: hate, division, violence. What’s to lose?

  38. Boambee John says:

    Preposterous

    I agree, but I am willing to condemn all such groups. Your condemnation seems rather selective. Can you bring yourself to condemn groups like Antifa directly.
