Gore Vidal: Pedo/Rape Apologist


Gore Vidal, according to Wikipedia, was “an American writer (of novels, essays, screenplays, and stage plays) and a public intellectual known for his patrician manner, epigrammatic wit, and polished style of writing.” A little further down, his “polished, erudite style” is noted.

Hmm…what could they mean? Perhaps they were referring to that time (in 2009) when The Atlantic asked the patrician writer for his intellectual take on director Roman Polanski being arrested in Switzerland for leaving the U.S. in 1978 before being sentenced to prison for raping a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson’s house in Hollywood.

The polished and witty Vidal replied: “I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of?”

Vidal, yet another counterculture Left icon, went on to mock the “idea that this girl was in her communion dress, a little angel all in white, being raped by this awful Jew.”

(Note: The long list of Hollywood pedo/rape apologists who lined up in to sign a petition, asking for the release of Roman Polanski included: Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar, Wes Anderson, Darren Aronofsky, Stephen Frears, Buck Henry, Wong Kar Waï, Harmony Korine, John Landis, David Lynch, Michael Mann, Julian Schnabel, Barbet Schroeder, Martin Scorcese, and Wim Wenders.)

Whether or not the self-described “pansexual” limited his depravity to being a loud apologist for sexual abuse and child rape is uncertain but some of Vidal’s family members have gone public on the topic.

If you scroll down far enough his Wiki page, you’ll find a section called “postmortem hearsay” in which we learn that Vidal’s nephew, Burr Steers, told the New York Times“I know (William) Buckley had a file on him that Gore feared. It would make sense if that material was about him having underage sex. Gore spent a lot of time in Bangkok, after all. Gore also had a very weird take on the abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests. He would say that the young guys involved were hustlers who were sending signals.”

Vidal’s half-sister Nina Straight has corroborated Steers’ story, comparing Vidal’s behavior to “Jerry Sandusky acts” – while Buckley’s son verifies that some kind of file once existed.

Perhaps some enterprising soul will move this information up towards the top of his Wiki page and add in Vidal’s epigrammatic comments related to the crimes of his comrade, Roman Polanski. You never know…

In the meantime, to discuss Vidal as a polished and erudite commentator on corruption and decadence without mentioning his status as (at least) an apologist for sexual predators is to support and sustain the rampant, ever increasing pedophile culture.


Jimmy Page: Whole Lotta Pedophile


The Beastie Boys once sang (sic): “If I played guitar I’d be Jimmy Page/The girlies I like are underage.” As far as I know, they’ve gotten a free pass for such a debased endorsement but there’s no question as to their lyrical veracity.

According to Wikipedia, James Patrick “Jimmy” Page, Jr. is “an English musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin” who is “widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time.” 

While Wiki neglects to mention Page and his band’s notorious plagiarism, the far more egregious omission involves abduction, kidnapping, and pedophilia.

Here are the basic detailsIn 1972, at a nightclub in LA, Page met 14-year-old Lori Maddox.  In the unauthorized biography of Led Zeppelin, Hammer of the Gods, Maddox explains that Page “told his tour manager, Richard Cole, to ‘kidnap’ her and take her to the West Hollywood hotel the band was staying in. Maddox admits to being kept under lock-and-key, presumably to keep 29-year-old Page from being imprisoned for child sexual abuse.”

Of course, this is but one of many similar “rock star” stories.

Perhaps some enterprising soul will set the record straight by adding this missing information to Jimmy Page’s Wiki page. You never know…

In the meantime, to discuss Page’s musical reputation without mentioning his status as kidnapper and child rapist is to support and sustain the rampant, ever increasing pedophile culture.


Who’s Trying to Silence Cindy Sheehan?


Activism often makes for strange bedfellows. The arduous work of coalition-building involves strategic compromises and trade-offs. Most importantly, solidarity necessitates an agreement to disagree…with minimal malice.

Being an ally, accomplice, or fellow traveler requires an understanding that disagreement is not the same as oppression or violence. If a particular activist contingent will tolerate nothing less than marching in lockstep, well, that’s not solidarity or ally-ship. It’s thought policing.

Which brings me to a situation involving my friend and comrade, Cindy Sheehan – someone who has connected with an astonishing array of dissident individuals and groups.

Allen Ginsberg: “To label pedophilia as criminal is ridiculous”


I became a member of NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love [sic] Association) … as a matter of civil liberties. In the early 1980s, the FBI had conducted a campaign of entrapment and ‘dirty tricks’ against NAMBLA members just as they had against black and anti-war leaders in previous decades.”

If we are to take the revered poet at face value, he saw the “rights” of men to abuse, assault, and rape children as being on par with those of activists risking arrest (or worse) to struggle against militarism and white supremacy.

In case you’re naive enough to believe this “free speech” bullshit, please consider something else Ginsberg said, this time during a 1997 interview with The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review: “Everybody likes little kids. … Naked kids have been a staple of delight for centuries, for both parents and onlookers. So to label pedophilia as criminal is ridiculous.”

Then we have Deliberate Prose: Selected Essays 1952-1995, a book in which his publisher (HarperCollins) claims Ginsberg “gave voice to the moral conscience of the nation.” A book in which the poet’s “moral conscience” led him to announce: “Prepubescent boys and girls don’t have to be protected from big hairy you and me, they’ll get used to our lovemaking in 2 days provided the controlling adults will stop making those hysterical noises that make everything sexy sound like rape.”

I’ll give you a few minutes to unclench your fists and/or vomit before we re-visit Ginsberg’s proud standing as a member of NAMBLA:

“Attacks on NAMBLA stink of politics, witch hunting for profit, humorlessness, vanity, anger and ignorance,” Ginsburg stated, before betraying his actual predatory motivations: “I’m a member of NAMBLA because I love boys too – everybody does, who has a little humanity.”

That’s not humanity, it’s pedophilia.

This related excerpt from Andrea Dworkin’s memoir, Heartbreak, is humanity:


Ginsberg’s Wikipedia page dances around his association with NAMBLA, but it’s hardly the focus. In fact, here’s how his entry begins:

Irwin Allen Ginsberg; June 3, 1926 – April 5, 1997) was an American poet and one of the leading figures of both the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the counterculture that would soon follow. He vigorously opposed militarism, economic materialism, and sexual repression and was known as embodying various aspects of this counterculture, such as his views on drugs, hostility to bureaucracy and openness to Eastern religions. Ginsberg is best known for his epic poem “Howl,” in which he denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States.

Perhaps some enterprising soul out there might wanna add to that opening paragraph. Perhaps that addition would mention something about the “destructive forces” of pedophilia.


William S. Burroughs: Novelist, Essayist, Painter, Spoken Word Performer…Pedophile


His Wikipedia entry begins as such:

William Seward Burroughs II (also known by his pen name William Lee; February 5, 1914 – August 2, 1997) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, painter, and spoken word performer. A primary figure of the Beat Generation and a major postmodernist author, he is considered to be “one of the most politically trenchant, culturally influential, and innovative artists of the 20th century.”

Curiously, they left out a very important word: pedophile.

Perhaps some enterprising soul out there might wanna add to his Wiki page. Perhaps it’ll be something like this excerpt (from a 1955 letter written by Burroughs in Tangiers and addressed to Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac):

“The Italian school is just opposite, and I stand for hours watching the boys with my 8-power field glasses. Curious feeling of projecting myself, like I was standing over there with the boys, invisible earthbound ghost, torn with disembodied lust. They wear shorts, and I can see the goose pimples on their legs in the chill of the morning, count the hairs. Did I ever tell you about the time Marv and I paid two Arab kids sixty cents to watch them screw each other—we demanded semen too, no half-assed screwing. So I asked Marv: ‘Do you think they will do it?’ and he says: ‘I think so. They are hungry.’ They did it. Made me feel sorta like a dirty old man…”


This isn’t edgy and underground. It’s not “trenchant” or “innovative.” It’s criminal, predatory, and pathological. To discuss Burroughs as a “culturally influential” icon and canonize his work without mentioning his sexual assaults on children (and his open celebration of such heinous crimes) is to support and sustain the rampant, ever increasing pedophile culture.


10 Ways Men Can Help Smash Gender Roles


Gender is a social construct. Gender is, by design, oppression. Top-down oppression. Males, as a class, oppressing females as a class. To provoke genuine, sustainable social change, gender must be abolished and men must play a major part in such an epic rebellion.

Here are 10 ways men can get started right now…

Occupy This Question: What’s Changed in 4 Years?


I was training a client on the morning on September 18 when she mentioned she saw something about Occupy Wall Street on the news the night before.

“Yeah, yesterday was the fourth anniversary,” I explained.

“It looked quiet,” she said. “Did you go?”

I shook my head “no.”

She did another set of exercises and then asked: “So, what’s changed in four years?”

After a long, deep sigh, I replied: “That’s a really depressing question.”

Choosing not to fall back on privileged platitudes (“Changes takes time,” “Occupy altered the conversation,” etc.), I instead made a sarcastic crack about how so many occupiers are now actively campaigning for a Democratic presidential candidate…and moved on with my client’s workout.
