Kate, Sex, Lies and the Truth

May 27, 2013

Here is another story you likely did not hear about in the lamestream media. And if you did, you would have gotten a terribly one-sided slant on all this. So how many of you know about Kaitlyn Hunt? Nope, didn’t think you would. However, a few of you may have heard something about a “Free Kate” movement.

So what is all this about, and why should Kate be freed? Well, the story is quite straight forward – except to the homosexual activists and a pro-homosexual MSM who are trying to pretend it isn’t. Kate is an 18-year-old lesbian who was caught out having a sexual affair with a child – a 14-year-old girl.

Now that is illegal in the state of Florida, where this sordid event occurred. So we have here a clear case of paedophilia: adults having sex with children. That should be the end of the story, except that the homosexual activists have turned Kate into a poster girl – and even a victim – for their cause.

They can find absolutely nothing wrong with this, and are bending over backwards to justify it to the world. Just imagine if a man was found to have had sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl: he would be in jail by now and the whole world would think justice had been served.

But because this is a lesbian affair, the media as a whole and a homosexuality-drenched West is having trouble finding anything wrong with this. Thus we have yet another clear indication that the granting of special rights to homosexuals simply opens the door to every other sort of sexual perversion – in this case paedophilia.

Once again it is only the alternative media which has been reporting this story, and doing so free of the pro-homosexual bias. One writer who has been closely following this story, attempting to accurately present the facts on the case, is Robert Stacy McCain.

He has now penned a number of important articles on this deviant case, with his first entitled “Liberals Now Arguing for a Lesbian’s Right to Have Sex With a 14-Year-Old Girl”. He points out how the secular left – the cheer squad for all things homosexual – are throwing up all the usual sick defences: “but it’s consensual,” “equality,” etc.

Kate’s own mother has come out wholeheartedly defending the actions of her daughter. She “says that the parents of the 14-year-old who pressed charges are ‘out to destroy my daughter [because] they feel like my daughter “made” their daughter gay,’ and these ‘bigoted, religious’ parents ‘see being gay as a sin and wrong, and they blame my daughter.’

“See? You deviant weirdos thought Jailbait Lesbian School Girls was just a popular DVD title, but now it’s a civil right. And the only people who disagree are bigoted religious zealots — including the authorities in Indian River County, Florida: ‘If this was an 18-year-old male and that was a 14-year-old girl, it would have been prosecuted the same way,” Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar said during a Monday news conference. . . .

“‘The idea is to protect people in that vulnerable group from people who are older, 18 and above,’ said Bruce Colton, state attorney for Florida’s 19th circuit, which includes Indian River County and other parts of the Treasure Coast. ‘…The statute specifically says that consent is not a defense.’

“Colton said this case exemplifies the purpose of the current law and added he would not support any effort to make consensual relationships among peers legal. ‘There’s a big maturity difference between them,’ he said. ‘You’re talking the difference between a senior in high school and a freshman in high school. That’s what the law is designed to protect’.”

He begins a follow-up article this way: “In January, Rush Limbaugh warned that there was ‘an effort under way to normalize pedophilia,’ and was ridiculed by liberals (including CNN’s Soledad O’Brien) for saying so. But now liberals have joined a crusade that, if successful, would effectively legalize sex with 14-year-olds in Florida.”

He continues, “Using the slogan ‘Stop the Hate, Free Kate’ (the Twitter hashtag is #FreeKate) this social-media campaign has attracted the support of liberals including Chris Hayes of MSNBC, Daily Kos, Think Progress and the gay-rights group Equality Florida. Undoubtedly, part of the appeal of the case is that Hunt is a petite attractive green-eyed blonde. One critic wondered on Twitter how long activists have ‘been waiting for a properly photogenic poster child of the correct gender to come along?’

“Portraying Hunt as the victim of prejudice, her supporters claim she was only prosecuted because she is homosexual and because the parents of the unnamed 14-year-old are ‘bigoted religious zealots,’ as Hunt’s mother said in a poorly written Facebook post. The apparent public-relations strategy was described by Matthew Philbin of Newsbusters: ‘If you can play the gay card, you immediately trigger knee-jerk support from the liberal media and homosexual activists anxious to topple any and all rules regarding sex.’

“None of Hunt’s supporters seem to care about the possible consequences of issuing what Philbin calls a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card to their teenage lesbian hero-victim. Some have deliberately falsified the narrative of Hunt’s crime, claiming that the sexual relationship began when she was 17, when in fact Hunt turned 18 last August and the incidents at issue occurred between November and January….

“Prosecutors in the case are apparently determined to resist the politically correct demands of the ACLU, MSNBC and other liberals who don’t care about the precedent that might be set by nullifying Florida’s age of consent laws. What is remarkable — and alarming to many parents — is that liberals appear to be unashamed to argue for legalizing sex with 14-year-olds.”

And in another piece he writes, “Perhaps the most devastating blow to the ‘Free Kate’ campaign’s narrative of victimhood, however, was a local TV station’s interview Thursday with the younger girl’s parents, a mixed-race couple who scarcely appeared to be ‘vindictive bigots.’ Jim and Laurie Smith (he’s white, she’s black) told WPEC-TV reporter Jana Eschbach that they had twice asked Hunt to leave their daughter alone, and only went to police after a January incident in which their daughter ran away and spent the night at Hunt’s house.”

Another commentator also discusses these parents: “No matter what they feel they’re protecting their daughter from, they have both the legal right and moral responsibility to protect their daughter, and that’s exactly what they did. That they’ve become the biggest target of contempt because of the Hunt family’s efforts is horrific. It’s not just. It’s unforgivable. That the basic truths of the case were wildly misrepresented by the Hunt family to do it make it that much more outrageous.

“That manipulation was used to take advantage of a community full of generous people with good hearts who are ready to fight for equality is just as offensive. The dishonesty of the architects of the Free Kate campaign does damage to the credibility of the effort of legitimately persecuted people fighting against real abuse…

“Not to mention the lives of the parents who fought to protect their daughter, and a 14 year old girl whose life will never be the same after becoming an unwitting participant in an international media firestorm that didn’t need to happen. All of this… so an 18 year old doesn’t have to accept the consequences of her own actions.”

And the lefties and homosexual activists insist that paedophilia has nothing to do with their agenda. Yeah right.

  • Infatuation and sexual exploitation by older people of a forming young mind must be protected. I agree the lesbians are damaging the same of homosexuals.
    The society morals had been undermined for too long by the clever gay-lesbian false immoral pretences.

  • What can we expect?
    Today the winner of the Cannes film festival was announced and it is an erotic lesbian ‘love’ story.
    According to reports the sex scenes are very explicit, show stopping and ‘non-simulated’ – yippee.
    It’s all just so sick and perverted.

  • Oh I forgot to mention, this lesbian story is about a 15yr old girl with a 27yr old woman.

  • And the lefties are carefully ignoring the fact that this girl cannot give consent because she is underage, therefore it was rape.

  • when I was 13 I had a ‘crush’ on my 25year old music teach. She was kind but took no advantage of me and I grew out of it. Guess for a lot of teens it is a stage that we go thru. Was it not Queen Victoria who said men with men was wrong but did not believe it happened with females. So these ‘free Kate’ proponents want to go back to Victorian laws?

    Patricia Rogers

  • Wow! Of all the articles I have read on your blog site, Bill, this is near the top of making me shake my head. Justified rape – yeah, it’s okay because it was a lesbian fling. Let’s turn a rape into a political football. This does show how amoral the actions are of these Liberals.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but in the US, isn’t statutory rape exactly that, even if consent is involved?

    @ Patricia, been there done that – as a young teenager having a crush on someone older. Sometimes it’s the young person doing the pushing, but that is what makes the actions of the adult party all the more necessary of responsibility, and when they are not, their actions all the more reprehensible.

    Matthew Patchon

  • Bill, as much as I respect your writing and your views, I just want to inform you that I learned of this story through mainstream news, and, surprisingly, there was no liberal slant, just the facts. Older girl, younger girl. Jail.

    Also, this is not so new. Isn’t there a scene in Vagina Monologues that portrays a woman forcing herself on a younger girl? And think how many people attended that “play” and applauded at the end.

    Julia Marks

  • Thanks Julia

    But of course I nowhere said there was no MSM coverage of this – just limited. And I live in Australia, so I was speaking mainly about the MSM here, not so much the US where you are from.

    And the fact that you saw one report, and it seemed unbiased, does not at all mean that any and all other MSM reports on this were equally free of bias.

  • In this case I would call it per-meditated Statutory Rape as following every thought there invariably follows an action. Pity we still did not have Statutory Rape on Australian Law books and enforced in such cases then we might see less of the situation in this Country where we see a great many cases of it.

    These sort of things need to be stamped out with appropriate penalties. These things should not be allowed to fester and divide society as it is doing now.

    At the risk of again repeating myself, a Sin is Sin, is a Sin, nothing less, and cannot be excused by any excuse, rationalization, justification or pretext.

  • Was in Melbourne’s MX on Friday FWIW.

  • This is always what homosexuals wanted right from the beginning. Out of the Gay platform of 72 really only the AoC laws are not where they want them. This is one of the last goals still to be fulfilled. Those who could have stopped this madness before it started should be ashamed of themselves.

    Ian Nairn

  • History has shown that empires have fallen, not through enemy attack from without, but from moral decay and disintegration within.

    Over the past 50 years we have seen the family unit, the very foundation of society, destroyed by our law courts. We have primary school children who have had up to five “fathers”. When a child is murdered or physically abused, how many times is that child living with a parent in a defacto relationship which is smiled upon by the law and passively accepted by a society which is no longer allowed to voice a “discriminatory” opinion.

    We are so accepting of “legitimate alternative lifestyles” that we can allow a child to be exploited by an adult predator and have a section of society hailing a criminal as a heroine for their cause.
