End the Media Blackout on Gay Rapists

Rape is a hideous crime.

Besides the physical and emotional violence inflicted, depriving the victim of their basic human dignity is unconscionable.  The charge of rape itself is worthy of our full attention; and if proven, the crime should demand the harshest punishment we can muster.  But thanks to a corrupt media, that’s just not the way things work in America these days.

For instance, while decades old rape accusations against a black TV star named Bill are given front page headlines, more credible rape allegations against a Southern white President of the United States named Bill are ignored and the victims are savaged in the press.

Liberal politics, not people, matter to our evil media.

That’s precisely why they rush to their cameras, microphones and keyboards when news breaks about a pedophile Catholic priest having his way with altar boys.  Not because they care about the altar boys, but because they want to discredit the Catholic Church.  If you doubt that fact, ask yourself why you haven’t heard much from the Mainstream Media about the recent arrest of 66 year-old Terrence Bean, charged with raping a 15-year old boy. 

The answer is because Terrence isn’t a Catholic priest.  Instead, he’s the co-founder and on the board of directors of the homosexual organization ironically called the “Human Rights Campaign.”  The confused souls you see who adorn their car bumpers with the yellow equal sign emblazoned on a blue sticker are flying Bean’s flag…with pride, no doubt.

Bean is also a very wealthy man who gives lavishly to the Democratic Party and has been wined and dined regularly by President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama.   Yet, despite his public notoriety, the fact this near 70-year old gay hero and his 25-year old boyfriend Kiah Lawson were charged with two counts of sodomizing a 15-year old victim just last year doesn’t seem to warrant a mention in the mainstream press.  Why? 

Because abused 15-year olds aren’t as important as advancing a liberal political agenda.  And this isn’t an anomaly; this is a sick pattern. 

While the media obsessed and exploited the death of a 21-year old gay man from Wyoming named Matthew Shepard, they almost completely shunned the ghastly and gruesome slaughter of a 13-year old in Arkansas named Jesse Dirkhising around the same time.  Not only did the media perpetuate the lie that Matthew Shepard was killed by homophobes who hated him for being gay (when in fact he was killed by one of his gay lovers over drug money), they repeated it so loudly and so often that Congress was shamed into passing the absurdly named “Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Law.”

Meanwhile, when two homosexual predators named Davis Carpenter (38) and Joshua Brown (22) bound, drugged, gagged, sexually tortured and brutally sodomized Dirkhising throughout the night, ending in death by asphyxiation, the media was uninterested.  Responding police found the 7th grade boy lying naked on the gay men’s floor, nearly unresponsive.  “His face was blue, there was blood in his mouth, and his body was smeared with feces,” they confirmed.  When Dirkhising died later that night, the media blackout began.

Lying about a 21-year old man’s death did more to help the all-important “gay crusade” than telling the truth about a tortured boy, after all.

And let’s not forget, just two years ago another iconic figure in the “gay rights” movement, Larry Brinkin, escaped media scrutiny despite horrific crimes.  Brinkin, the man who originated the phrase “domestic partnership” to help advance the gay agenda and who the media adored to the point of declaring “Larry Brinkin Week” when he retired in 2010, was arrested after police found, “images of year-old infants subjected to sodomy and oral sex” on his computer. 

As if that weren’t appalling  enough, the gathered evidence included this racist email sent by Brinkin to his kiddie porn supplier that is enough to make a sane person vomit: “I loved especially the 2 year old n----- getting nailed. Hope you’ll continue so I can see what the little blond b---- is going to get.” 

The media’s silence on that barbaric depravity sent a clear message: sodomized babies are expendable if it means protecting a left-wing cause.

Though we’ve only scratched the surface, this much seems sadly apparent: when it comes to homosexuality in the culture, our media has a story to tell.  And they aren’t about to let victims, justice or truth get in their way.
