So I told you about those walking, talking outrage monkeys of the Women’s March, who were joining with similarly “enlightened” shrews of dubious moral fiber, as they raged against the feds stepping in and shutting down an insidious channel for sex trafficking – the online site, Backpage.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported that a whopping three-quarters of their reports for child sex trafficking come from Backpage.
Children, being sold to satisfy the sick desires of twisted adults, their youth and humanity ripped away from them – and the Women’s March representatives want to protect Backpage.
Yeah. Sit down and shut up.
The co-founder of the sick site, Michael Lacey, was arrested on Friday and the site was seized and shut down.
The 93-count indictment was unsealed on Monday, days after authorities seized the classified ads site and reportedly raided the Arizona home of Michael Lacey, one of Backpage’s founders who was named among the seven defendants.
“For far too long, Backpage.com existed as the dominant marketplace for illicit commercial sex, a place where sex traffickers frequently advertised children and adults alike,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “But this illegality stops right now. Last Friday, the Department of Justice seized Backpage, and it can no longer be used by criminals to promote and facilitate human trafficking.”
Prosecutors claim the founders of the site are complicit, knowingly allowing for sex trafficking through their site. They’re being charged with facilitating prostitution, underage sex trafficking, and money laundering, among other charges.
A year prior to this excellent outcome a bill aimed at stopping these vile activities, known as the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act passed both the House and Senate, and now awaits the signature of the president.
Critics claim the bill could stifle online free expression.
“Our bipartisan investigation into Backpage uncovered new evidence that handed over to the Department of Justice more than 10 months ago,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who has led the legislative effort, said in a statement. “Our bipartisan work has made a significant difference in raising awareness of these trafficking crimes and informed our efforts to craft a narrow legislative solution that is now ready to be signed into law.”
So let’s get it done, Trump.
In the meantime, let’s call this a win, and just enjoy the shrieks of certain insanity coming from the decidedly hypocritical Women’s March crones.
