Child Pornography: Inside the Liberal Mind

In a 7 - 2 decision, the Supreme Court of the U.S. has just upheld a federal law that punishes people who peddle or seek child pornography. The case, entitled The United States vs. Williams, focused in on a case involving one Michael Williams who signed into a public Internet chat room in 2004 and offered up photographs of men molesting his 4-year old daughter.

He provided a hyperlink that led to seven photos of actual children, aged approx. 5 to 15, engaging in sexually explicit conduct and displaying their genitals. When Williams' home was eventually searched (with a valid search warrant), two hard drives were found containing at least 22 images of real children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, some of it sadomasochistic.

People like Williams are absolutely sick and repugnant and offer absolutely nothing positive to society. All they do is cause harm and to the most helpless in our society no less.

Thank goodness the U.S. Supreme Court decided as it did. But I got to wondering who on earth would possibly dissent against this verdict. No big surprise to find out that the "2" were Justices Souter and Ginsburg, the most liberal judges on that court. The opening paragraph of their argument begins as follows: "Dealing in obscenity is penalized without violating the First Amendment, but as a general matter pornography lacks the harm to justify prohibiting it."

I tried reading the rest of it but for the most part it's just a bunch of moral equivalency gobbledygook. Beyond the realization that "child porn hurts children", what more does one need to know?! But to the liberal mind, everyone is a victim and so the child pornographer is on the same level of victimhood as the children whose lives will be scarred forever. What a sick joke. What audacity liberals have to now try to rebrand themselves as "progressives".

If Barack Obama gets elected president, look for more judges like Souter and Ginsburg to be appointed. Don't take my word for it. Obama said it himself here.
