But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”
First there was the defense of Polanski and the media hesitated
Then there were the psychiatrists advocating pedophilia as a sexual orientation and the media ignored it
then there was the the articles defending Donkey Sex
And advocating for Polygamy in the Guardian
And now we have come to this:
The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman. (Click here to read the affidavit in Hunt’s arrest.) It is a felony in Florida to have sex with 14-year-olds. Hunt was expelled from Sebastian High School — where she and the younger girl had sex in a restroom stall — and charged with two counts of “felony lewd and lascivious battery on a child.” The charges could put Hunt in prison for up to 15 years. Prosecutors have offered Hunt a plea bargain that would spare her jail time, but her supporters have organized an online crusade to have her let off scot-free — in effect, nullifying Florida’s law, which sets the age of consent at 16.
Yes you read that right
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?”
Yes those are sites on the left, and an actual TV prime time television show making the case that if anyone objects to an adult having sex with a 14 year old they are simply haters, but as Stacy McCain points out:
let me remind you sick freaks that if you were to download photos or videos of what Kaitlyn Hunt is charged with doing to a 14-year-old girl, that would be a federal crime.
Yes a federal crime like this one:
A Fitchburg man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Worcester for possessing child pornography.
Roy Parry, 49, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Timothy S. Hillman to 10 years in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release. In January 2013, Parry pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.
Now I’m sure that MSNBC agrees with this verdict and that confuses me. I don’t see MSNBC rushing to promote a “free Roy” site. Why would ten years be a proper sentence for downloading the image of what Katie did be just but the actual acts of Ms. Hunt be worthy of a national campaign on a Comcast Owned network?
Because it was “a consensual, same-sex relationship,” that’s why!

Now we have the anchor of a national cable network defending it. Then again it’s not like the Today show is portraying this sympathetically too..
This has only taken five years and it is going to get a lot worse before it’s better.
Oh and the parents of the 14 year old, they’re now targets.
Closing thought, Now that apparently underage sex is socially acceptable if you work for MSNBC (and apparently it’s owner Comcast) perhaps the Boy Scouts will remove the section of their mandatory training manual on now that the Boy Scouts have hanged their rules will they have to change this manual too, specifically page 7?
Sexual Molestation by Peers
Approximately one-third of sexual molestation occurs at the hands of other children. If your child tells you about club initiations in which sexual activity is included, or if your child tells you about inappropriate or tricked, pressured, or forced sexual activity by other children, this is a form of sexual abuse and you need to take steps to stop the activity. This kind of sexual misconduct is serious and should not be ignored.
Apparently there are 140,000 people who signed a petition who would say otherwise and some of them are primetime hosts on a network owned by Comcast.
Update: Stacy McCain reports that, advice from the Today Show not withstanding Kaitlyn Hunt has turned down the plea bargain
Kaitlyn Hunt, the Florida 18-year-old who admitted a sexual affair with a 14-year-old girl, has rejected a plea-bargain offer from prosecutors in Indian River County and will face trial June 20 on charges of lewd and lascivious batter
I have a funny feeling the 140k petition signers and the knowledge that win or lose she as the face of a cause célèbre with all the think tank and speaking circuit implications thereof was the driving force behind this roll of the dice.
If I had 140,000 willing to support me I’d never have to put this at the bottom of a post ever again.
But since I’m not on the same side of this issue as MSNBC I need to ask if 14 of you can kick in $20 to get me to a $300 paycheck if you would care to help please hit DaTipJar below.
