Either I’m just a paranoid conspiracy theorist, or there really is a persistent nexus between left-wing politics and paedophilia. Left-wing activists, politicians and media just seem to keep getting busted for kiddy-fiddling, or acting as apologists for those who do.

Still, maybe it’s all just a coincidence. I mean, it’s not like left-wing political parties have ever openly said they support paedophilia.

Oh, wait…

It’s not every day that a major European political party has to apologize for having supported pedophilia, but two weeks ago, the German Green Party had to do just that. For the past year and a half, investigators commissioned by the party have been probing its past associations with pro-pedophilia groups, and their report has been shocking to many Germans. It found that the German “pedosexual movement,” which advocated the legalization of “consensual” sex between adults and children, found a surprisingly warm reception in the party in the 1980s.

Well, I mean, come on, it’s just the German Greens. This is a party, after all, whose first elected member was a former Nazi stormtrooper. Its co-founders included an active participant in Hitler’s 1923 Beer Hall Putsch.

Yeah, it’s just the Germans…

Although it is little remembered these days, the move to legalize pedophilia in the 1980s went far beyond Germany. In the United States, the Childhood Sensuality Circle and, more notoriously, North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) advocated (with little success) for legalized pedophilia, and other countries, including the Netherlands, Canada and the UK, had similar movements.

Dammit, leftists, just stop it!

As it turns out, the correlation of leftism with paedophilia is more than just incidental. Those old-school lefty rockspiders justified their perversion in the cause of “liberation”. To oppose child-fondling was “fascist”.

During the late 1970s and early 1980s, groups like the Indianerkommune (which fought in favor of “autonomy” for children) and the German Study and Work Group on Pedophilia made surprising inroads into German political parties. A youth group affiliated with the FDP, the country’s liberal party, adopted pro-pedophilia resolutions in 1980. During last year’s election, an FDP politician—who is now a mother of three—had to withdraw her candidacy after one of the Greens’ researchers discovered an early essay of hers describing how her “wishes and needs can only be satisfied by a child, especially a girl.” The pro-pedophilia movement had even more success within the German Green Party, which was formed in 1980 as a vehicle for various left-wing causes, and actually managed, as the Trittin scandal showed, to have its goals taken up by segments of the party itself.

Yeah, but it was all talk, surely? Just like the “NOMAPS” (“Non Offending Minor Attracted Persons”) so praised by the left today as “virtuous paedophiles”. They don’t want to actually rape kids, just have a harmless perve while your six-year-old gets changed at the swimming pool.

Not surprisingly, left-wing pro-pedophilia circles sometimes facilitated real-life child abuse. In a lengthy Die Welt newspaper article published last year, an anonymous male victim described life on a 1980s commune with then-prominent Green Party member Hermann Meer. On the commune, the victim explained, Meer’s pedophilia was open: “It wasn’t a secret, it was advertised.” He told Die Welt that he was sexually abused by “about 10 men”—most of them visitors attending meetings on commune grounds.

In the years since, Germany has developed some of the most forward-thinking treatment programs for pedophilia.

So forward-thinking, in fact, that left-wing paedophiles are apparently feeling safe enough to bring back the “good old days”.

In January, as part of a Canadian child-pornography bust, Sebastian Edathy, a politician in the center-left Social Democratic Party, was discovered to have downloaded legal (i.e. non-sexual) nude photos of children onto his computer. In a move that would seem outrageous in the U.S., party officials didn’t make Edathy resign until several weeks later and some spoke highly of him even as he left.


Well, they wouldn’t want to be all fascist and judgemental, now would they? I mean, if people start thinking that there’s a nexus between left-wing “progressivism” and paedophilia, they might even start thinking that there’s a slippery slope to the left’s continual push for more and more “liberation” of anything and everything.
