As high-end fashion brand Balenciaga faces widespread backlash over its efforts to promote child porn, mainstream media outlets on the left seem to be joining in on the conversation by becoming more overt in their efforts to normalize pedophilia.
Balenciaga has been under fire from every direction as people torch the brand for promoting pedophilia.
The company was forced to issue an apology and claimed that they “strongly condemn abuse of children in any form.”
“We stand for children safety and well-being,” they continued. “We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign.”
However, that didn’t stop the Washington Post from seizing on the moment to try and shift the narrative surrounding pedophilia. The outlet recently published a raving review for a play that casts pedophiles in a sympathetic light, suggesting that their punishments are often times too harsh.
The WAPO piece titled, “‘Downstate’ is a play about pedophiles. It’s also brilliant,” the left-wing author Peter Marks praises the play for being “tough stuff, questioning how society treats those convicted of heinous acts.”
Marks notes that the playwright, Bruce Norris, As described by Marks, paints the child molesters in a positive light.
“He’s loaded the dice to some degree in ‘Downstate,’ as the predators who’ve completed their prison terms are depicted not as monsters but rather as complicated, troubled souls,” Marks wrote.
The play also paints one of the main characters – who was molested as a child – as the bad guy.
The WAPO author goes on to say that while this pro-pedophilia play will no-doubt enrage some who don’t support these disturbing acts, for others with an ‘open’ mind, he claims, the play is brilliant.
“Some theatergoers no doubt will resent that Norris chose to illuminate this delicate subject in a nuanced way that doesn’t jibe with their own undiluted revulsion,” Marks explains. “If you suspect you are one of these people, ‘Downstate’ is not for you.”
“For many others, it will be a stunning demonstration of the power of narrative art to tackle a taboo, to compel us to look at a controversial topic from novel perspectives,” Marks said.
For some time now, the left has gradually been trying to normalize pedophilia with a rather disturbing determination. The production of this play suggests they may actually be succeeding in that effort, as sickening as that may be,
Author Ed Latimore explained, “The fact that the play got made is already a problem.”
“Calling it ‘brilliant’ is disgusting,” Latimore tweeted. “The part where you wanna burn it all down is when the @washingtonpost described the character of the victim as ‘the most disagreeable character’ who is played ‘irritatingly well.’”
