In 2015, Salon, the hard-left on-line magazine, published a piece by writer Todd Nickerson, who argued for a compassionate view of pedophiles, like him. Then much-reviled alt-right-troll Milo Yiannopoulos was found to have made comments that seemed to endorse pederasty and child rape, and Salon wanted to jump on the “Let’s declare Milo a monster and be rid of him” bandwagon. And Salon did just that, with three posts so far, and counting.
Inconveniently, one of their writers had found a forum in Salon to make the case that pedophiles were not monsters. See?
What did Salon do? Did it ask Nickerson to defend Milo? Did it try to thread the needle and argue the distinction between pederasty ( adult sex with boys) and pedophilia (sexual attraction to children?). Or stay the progressive “it’s just sex, and sex is good” course, even if it let an intractable foe of THE TRUE WAY like Yiannopoulos off the hook?
It just took down all of Todd Dickerson’s articles!
Articles defending pedophiles?
