Skip to comments.THE GREAT (FAKE) CHILD-SEX-TRAFFICKING EPIDEMIC
Posted on 12/09/2021 2:19:56 PM PST by NohSpinZone
Anxiety about the nation’s children, which is at a steady simmer in the best of times, boiled over in the summer of 2020, when the digital soldiers of QAnon occupied the otherwise innocuous hashtag #SaveTheChildren. Around the same time, major social-media platforms had started blocking overt QAnon accounts and hashtags. From their new beachhead, the digital soldiers were able to disseminate a cascade of false information about child trafficking on Instagram and Facebook: Children were being trafficked on the hospital ship USNS Comfort, then docked in New York City, and through tunnels underneath Central Park.
As outrageous as these allegations were, their timing may have made them sound less fantastical to some. They coincided with the release of popular documentaries about the real sex-trafficking crimes allegedly committed by Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who was arrested in July 2019 and committed suicide that August, and who was known for his wide circle of rich and famous acquaintances. (His death had set off a new slew of conspiracy theories.) In this context, the suddenly ubiquitous #SaveTheChildren posts created the illusion of an organic movement rising up to confront a massive social problem. Americans who knew little about QAnon became heavily involved, and when QAnon moved on to other concerns—a stolen election, a poisonous vaccine—these volunteers stayed devoted to the cause of opposing child sex trafficking.

Good take Atlantic. I'm sure everyone will agree with you. /s
The Atlantic targets one loony conspiracy and ignores the worldwide reality of child-trafficking and sex-trafficking, which sometimes overlap, and which no one with any knowledge denies.
You sex trafficking deniers are coming across as desperate.
You can smell the fear.
The Atlantic, still in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome, attacked any idea forwarded that child-trafficking does and has existed. One thing not covered by the Biden propaganda MSM, was the success that President Trump had with finding the child trafficking sinkholes, rescuing the children and prosecuting the offenders.
By their very article, I charge The Atlantic as defending the whole child trafficking business, since this article was meant as a deflection.
Isn’t the Atlantic one of those rags that lie *a*l*l* the time?
They have instructed their minions to properly inform you and to
soundly disparage any and all dissent.
Is there a Rag that does not lie all of the time?
The Atlantic has negative credibility; if they say its fake then it becomes more likely to be true.
Hmm—wonder how many senior executives/editors at The Atlantic have a “thing” for kids....
They are protesting a bit too much.
So, the sex traffickers the feds have sent to prison didn’t do anything after all?
You fancy yourself worth that, while you do your pedo-apologist thing?
It is to LOL!
“Is there a Rag that does not lie all of the time?”
I guess that would depend on your definition of “rag.” And your take on the grammar.
Did I mean to imply by my qualification of “rag” that there are also rags that don’t lie all the time, but this one does?
Or does the phrase “that lie all the time” apply to the entire category of “rags,” which it immediately follows?
Now I think I’ll resume the attempt to persuade my imagination to take me back to a certain hot springs in Japan.
Is this the rag that is being funded by Jobs’ widow?
So far Left to make herself feel good with her pals, yet due to her vast, capitalist earned wealth, will never have to experience any of the hardships that Leftist ideas bring on the ordinary folks like me and everyone else.
