Okay, now I’ve heard it all. Occupy Oakland wackos went out and protested an event held to raise awareness of, and put an end, to child sex-trafficking. I’m not sure what they’re beef was, other than the fact that police were involved, and they hate capitalism, and love prostitution. Apparently, they have no qualms about children being sold as sex-slaves.
On Wednesday, June 13, members of the Occupy movement protested against a conference dedicated to combatting child sex trafficking — thus, the Occupiers in essence were coming out in favor of one of society’s most loathsome moral crimes.
The protesters mostly were members of Occupy Oakland Patriarchy, a group within the overall Occupy movement tasked with overthrowing our civilization’s “patriarchy.”
The conference which so infuriated them was called HEAT Watch, short for the National Human Exploitation And Trafficking Watch Conference.
If there’s one issue that unites Americans of all political stripes, it’s the sexual enslavement of children. Whatever our opinions on other issues, we all agree that sex trafficking and the prostituting of children is an outrage and a tragedy. Thus, conference attendees included liberal, moderate and conservative politicians; progressive nonprofit organizations; law enforcement groups; religious leaders; and (according to the conference Web site) “social services, medical providers, mental health, education, probation, and community-based organizations.” In short: Everybody.
Everybody, that is, except Occupy Wall Street, who somehow found a way to oppose the abolition of child sexual slavery.
Here’s one of the pro-sex-slavery signs. (One of the few that doesn’t require a language warning.)
So, immigrant women want to be sex-slaves? They want that for their daughters?
These people are nuts. Watch them “bum rush” the conference. Zombie said they also threw paint bombs, eggs and unknown liquids. As if that’s supposed to make them sympathetic figures.
