Ireland’s great gay hope tripped up by petty concerns about pedophilia.

In the pantheon of gay heroes, David Norris ranks among the greatest. His long legal battle with the Republic of Ireland led to the repeal of its anti-homosexuality laws in 1993. His career in the Seanad (Irish Senate) has been characterized by his passion for civil rights (for homosexuals, not for anyone else). And until just recently, he was the odds on favorite to be the next President of Ireland. If he had achieved that feat, he would have been the first openly gay president in the history of Ireland; and Europe for that matter. His candidacy had strong support across Ireland, particularly among Irish youth. His following generated comparisons between Norris and Obama circa 2008. He was, in short, a rock star.

Electing an openly gay president would have signaled Ireland’s complete break with the medieval institution so long associated with it–the Catholic Church. The once socially conservative country has moved left in a big way, having legalized divorce, homosexual relations, and even gay civil unions. Abortion and gay marriage seem like the next logical steps.

Faith in the church has largely declined because Irish priests are a bunch of icky child molesters. Which wouldn’t normally bother me, except for the fact that the child molesters involved are Catholic priests. I don’t hate child molesting Catholic priests because they’re child molesters. I hate them because they are Catholic priests. And David Norris basically agrees with me.

Mr. Norris abandoned the campaign for the Irish presidency last week after a trumped up pedophilia scare brought the pressure to bear on him. Which is so stupid, because when I look for a president, I don’t ask myself what his personal feelings are on adults having sex with children. That’s of no consequence to me. I want competency. And I also want to advance the homosexual agenda while simultaneously bankrupting the nation, which is why I voted for Barack Obama. And if I were Irish, I’d be voting for Norris.

The statesman weathered a previous “scandal” in May when a tawdry restaurant critic–Helen Lucy Burke–dug up an old interview she’d done with Norris from 2002. In it, Norris mentions his support for pedophilia.

“In terms of classic paedophilia, as practised by the Greeks for example, where it is an older man introducing a younger man or boy to adult life, I think there can be something to be said for it.”

What’s controversial about that? One of my favorite tactics to use when trying to justify the morality of homosexuality is to point out that it has always existed. And that means that it’s okay. Just like pedophilia has always existed. Homosexuality was rampant in all sorts of pre-Christian societies like Rome and Greece. And that means that it’s okay. Just like pedophilia. The samurai of feudal Japan were raging homosexuals and no one thought anything was wrong with it. They were usually raping the boy apprentices placed in their charge, and no one thought anything was wrong with that either. To tell the truth, I can’t think of a single society that has tolerated homosexuality that didn’t also tolerate all sorts of other perversions. Those societies are clearly more enlightened than this one, which drips of Chrisotfascist moralisms.

Scenes like this have been found in archeological digs from all over the Hellenic world. Homosexuality was common in the ancient world. Powerful friendships blossomed between men and boys. It wasn't until the Christianization of these areas that such practices were suppressed. David Norris sees nothing wrong with it and I don't think we can fault him for that. He's clearly the victim of a homophobic witch-hunt.

Basically, everywhere you look in the non-Christian world, homosexuality has flourished. Well, except for the Muslim world, where they kill fags like me. But then along came these religious zealots with their moral hangups about sex and everything changed. All of a sudden it wasn’t permitted anymore for guys to take it in the poopchute or to have huge orgies with eleven year old boys or to fuck the samurai trainees. It’s a good thing we’re rapidly progressing toward the post-Christian world when these taboos on things like homosexuality and pedophilia will fade away again.   

The senator continued:

“Now again, this is not something that appeals to me, although when I was younger it would most certainly have appealed to me in the sense that  I would have greatly relished the prospect of an older, attractive, mature man taking me under his wing, lovingly introducing me to sexual realities, and treating me with affection and teaching me about life – yes, I think that would be lovely; I would have enjoyed that.”

Yeah, me too.

Norris called the reemergence of a nine year old interview “sabotage”, which it clearly was. No fair bringing up stuff like that, especially in an election year. Norris fired back:

“This is an attempt to sabotage my campaign. It’s a 10-year-old article. There is nothing new and I want to ask why is this being brought up now… I abhor, and I’ve made that clear, again and again on the record, I abhor the abuse of children, sexual, emotional or physical”

Yeah, so there! It’s old news. Everyone knew that Norris thinks it’s okay for adults to bang boys. Everyone knew, and nobody cared. Certainly not the people of Ireland who continued to name Norris as their top pick in poll after poll, even after the restaurant critic attempted to sabotage him.

The dapper senator has always been quite liberal in his views. Cosmopolitan, you might say. He thinks, for example, that Ireland’s age of consent law is much too high. Well, not that it’s too high, but that it shouldn’t exist at all. That’s right, these silly laws are really just as backwards as all the others that came before it–the ones against sodomy and killing children in the womb and stuff like that. David Norris remarked to Jason O’Toole of the Irish Daily Mail that he doesn’t believe there should be any laws regarding the age of consent for sexual activity.

Oooh…so “controversial”. If you’re a complete square, that is.

Now, he DOES abhor the abuse of children. He’s been on record about that. He took the church to task for its sex scandals in the Seanad’s Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse. Read it here:

http://www.senatordavidnorris.ie/blogger/2009/05/statements-on-commission-to-inquire.html

That’s right, this perv was on the Commission to Inquire Into Child Abuse! But, like me, he only hates pedophiles when they belong to the homophobic church in Rome. Because they’re HYPOCRITES. Not like David Norris.

Ireland’s leading LGBTQXYZ crusader loathes child sexual abuse so much that he even dated a child sex abuser for about thirty years. In fact, his love an adoration for this man was eventually what brought down his campaign. Norris was once romantically linked with an Israeli peace activist named Ezra Yitzhak Nawi.

Ezra Yitzhak Nawi, former partner of David Norris. He's a lifelong peace activist and supporter of Palestinian rights. Which is kind of strange because he likes to sleep with Palestinian men who take up arms against Israel. Odd that a peace activist would do that. I bet he's a member of QUIT!--see link at right side. Anyway, Mr. Nawi was convicted of statutory rape of a fifteen year old Palestinian boy. Which could have happened to anybody.

Mr. Nawi bedded a fifteen year old Palestinian boy in 1992. He was later convicted of statutory rape for the offense in 1997. Senator David Norris then sent a letter, on his official Irish parliamentary letterhead, to the High Court in Jerusalem begging for clemency. Norris presented himself as a character witness on Nawi’s behalf. He’s the Irish Bawney Fwank! (See This Day in LGBTQXYZ History: July 20th)

The senator really went to bat for his butt buddy:

“I know him to be an intelligent, honest, trustworthy, good and moral person for whom the present difficulty is quite uncharacteristic.”

See? So this is totally uncharacteristic. He’s only done it like two or three times before. Usually he only sleeps with men who are at least sixteen…usually. He’s also a very moral person. He’s the most moral statutory rapist there’s ever been. Norris even went as far as to say that Nawi is “a very good son to his mother”! Yeah, Nawi really makes his old Jewish mother proud when he piddles Palestinian boys. He’s a real Mensch, eh?

Senator Norris rounded out his chutzpah by arguing that his ex-boyfriend was the true victim here, having been “lured into a carefully prepared trap.” No doubt by the Joos! But Nawi pled guilty nonetheless, just so a trial would be averted and the Palestinian boy would be spared the pain of having to give testimony. So he pled guilty for the boy’s sake, and not because he did anything wrong. Norris also wrote that he was writing his letter “out of love and concern” for his former lover.

I do not regret supporting and seeking clemency for a friend, but I do regret giving the impression that I did not have sufficient compassion for the victim of Ezra’s crime.

Um…what crime, David? Ezra’s the victim here, remember? 

Well, we all know that Norris has compassion for the “victim”. That’s why he thinks that age of consent laws should be abolished. And that there’s something to be said for “classical pedophilia” in the Greek tradition. And why he talks dreamily about how wonderful it would have been if an older man had stuck his dick in his rectum when he was a child.

That letter brought down the presidential campaign of a gay giant, and along with it the hope of a new, post-Catholic generation of young Irishmen and -women. Ireland is the poorer for it.  The nation will just have to wait a little longer for its first gay president. Hopefully the next one won’t like the lads as much as this one does.

As David Norris remarked:

“I have lived a decent, respectable life, and there has been no scandal.”

So true, David. So true.

Kiddie porn ring busted. GLAD they’ll have good lawyers.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced earlier this week the conclusion of Operation Delgado–the take-down of a  multinational, internet-based kiddie porn ring operating from servers in the US. The website, entitled “Dreamboard” was a virtual nightmare of abusive sexual exploitation. It had around six hundred members, all men, from various countries across the globe, including the US, Canada, Kenya, France, and Ecuador.

"We got 'em!" Holder fist-pumps the sting operation that brought down an international child pornography ring. Just kidding. This is a picture from his black power days. Well, that would imply that his black power days are located somewhere in the past, which clearly they aren't. He still hates whitey. Okay, so this is a picture from his ridiculous necklace days.

Kind of wish I’d known about Dreamboard before they took it down. Oops…did I say that out loud?

Attorney General Holder laid out of some of the more sordid details:

“In order to become part of the Dreamboard community, prospective members were required to upload pornography portraying children under 12 years of age or younger.”

“Under 12 years of age or younger”. Well said, Eric. I’m guessing you got into Columbia on the affirmative action program. Just a guess.

Apparently, there was some really sick shit on there.

“Some of the children featured in these images and videos were just infants and in many cases, the children being victimized were in obvious and also intentional pain, even in distress and crying, just as the rules for one area of the bulletin board mandated. They had to be in distress and crying.”

As I watched the story unfold on CNN, I found myself asking–is GLAD going to come to the men’s defense or what? Seriously, they’re going to need a good legal team with experience getting pedophiles off the hook.

When I speak of GLAD, I’m referring of course to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, the Boston-based legal group that was formed for in 1978 for the specific purpose of defending adult men who had sex parties with teenage boys. (Not to be confused with GLAAD–Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). The organization really should have called themselves PAD (Pedophile Advocates & Defenders), but that didn’t have quite the same ring to it. It was better for PR purposes to portray themselves as an organization dedicated to defending gay men. Which, I suppose they were. Gay men who organized drug-fueled sex parties with kids from the local junior high.

Equal Justice Under Law...except for victims of pedophiles.

It was the seventies…what can I say? Things were really taking off for the LGBTQXYZ community. It was nearly ten years after Stonewall and we were starting to see cracks in America’s anti-gay exterior. There were enclaves here and there–San Fransicko, Manhattan, Boston–where it was almost acceptable to be out and proud. Harvey Milk had just been elected America’s first openly gay politician and AIDS was yet to put a damper on our hyperactive sex lives.

Sexual emancipation was the buzz word of the day. Sure, pedophilia seemed like traversing some kind of boundary. But that’s what we were about! Traversing the sexual boundaries that had choked us for centuries. If there was anything we stood for, it was the destruction of sexual mores that mandated sex occur only between husband and wife, and then only in the missionary position, and only for the purposes of procreation. Adults having sex with children was a new frontier, but then again so was men having sex with men, and women having sex with women.  They called boy lovers “perverts”, but  they called us queerboys “perverts” too. Who were we to judge?

And then disaster struck. In June of 1977, police raided a home in Revere, Massachusetts, arresting its owner and eventually twenty-four other men. It appears that the house on Mountain Avenue was the hub of some kind of pornographic sex ring where adult men threw beer bashes for underage boys. The objective was, of course, to get the teenage boys drunk and high, then to sodomize them.

How come nobody told me about these parties? You guys are really letting me down.

The twenty-four men indicted were charged with raping boys ranging in age from eight to thirteen, which was such an exaggeration because it later turned out that they could only prove that the men were having sex with boy hustlers who were at least fifteen years old. Okay, and one of them was nine. And most of them liked it. So it’s all cool.

The men took a plea bargain deal and got off with fines and probation. Great work on the part of their lawyers.

Boston Magazine has a great story on the Revere sex ring, the Boston area pedophile/gay rights scene, and the two major organizations that arose from the flap–GLAD and the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Read all about it:

http://www.bostonmagazine.com/articles/boy_crazy/

Enter the villain of this affair. No, not the ring of pervy sexual predetors with the sex dungeon in Revere. I’m talking about the District Attorney of Suffolk County, Garrett Byrne. DA Byrne surmised that there might be other such pedophilia houses in the county, which isn’t such a wild assumption considering the fact that the Boston public library and Revere Beach were pretty much the hottest spots for anonymous liaisons between men and sometimes boys.  Believe me, no one was checking ID’s. I certainly wasn’t, and I was there.

Mr. Byrne’s witchhunt began with a simple hotline. Anonymous tipsters could call in and report on anyone they thought was sexually abusing children. THE HORROR! Anonymous sex? Yes. Anonymous tip lines that notify law enforcement about possible sexual predators? That’s downright un-American!

I mean, someone could just dime out a person they didn’t like. Kind of the same way they could dime out a person they didn’t like for any crime just by calling the police station. People should not be able to report a crime because they might make a false report. So we musn’t allow reporting. Did you hear me? NO REPORTING!

Clearly, the hotline was unconstitutional. Because we didn’t like it. Anything we don’t like is unconstitutional.

The DA had declared war on Boston’s pedophile community and we homos would be his first casualties. I can’t understand why a gay man would be concerned about a pedophile hotline unless he was in fact a pedophile himself, but…we all know that “pedophile” is a code word. So law enforcement must never make any attempt to smoke the pervs out, because they’re really after adult men who have consensual sex with other adult men. As well as gay men who lure high school freshmen to their homes with pot and beer and then rape them up the ass.

Even though there’s no overlapping between the gay community and the pedophile community, we get a little nervous whenever anyone suggests that something should be done about child molesters. So, just to be safe, let’s not do anything about child molesters unless they happen to be Catholic priests.

The local gay community mounted an intense campaign to shut down the pedophile hotline, by judicial order if necessary. The courts always give us what we want and that’s why we love them. The effort was spearheaded by John Ward, Boston’s first openly gay male attorney and the founder of GLAD. He took the DA to court and the Byrne backed down, agreeing to “voluntarily” terminate the perv hotline.

Gay hero John Ward. He fought valiantly to shut down a hotline where people could tip off law enforcement to the existence of child rapists. Not that gay men do that sort of thing. Child rapists owe him a debt of gratitude. Though it's imposible to put a number on just how many child rapists were spared the shame of getting caught and going to jail, it's certainly a large number. Thanks, John.

That was 1978. Needless to say, most of Boston’s elected officials didn’t want to touch GLAD with a ten foot pole. Since then, the organization has gone completely mainstream. Every politician in the state kisses GLAD’s (diseased) asses. In 2003, they brought the case of two Northampton lesbians to the Massachusetts SJC. Maybe you’ve heard of it–it was called Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, and it brought marriage equality to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Yesterday’s pro-pedophile crusaders are today’s advocates for marriage equality! Who knows what lies ahead for GLAD? Heaven knows we’re never satisfied.

GLAD offers its annual “Spirit of Justice Award” to warriors who toil in the name of total equality for the LGBTQXYZ community. In 2008, that award was presented to…John Ward! It’s kind of cool that you get a lot of awards from an organization when you’re its founder. Anyway, the ceremony really brought a tear to my eye. Mr. Ward was given an introduction befitting his status as a civil rights hero:

The man giving John Ward’s introduction is GLAD legal director Gary Buseck. And as much as I respect Mr. Buseck, I have to correct a few mistakes he made in his introduction. All honest mistakes, I’m sure. Not some kind of attempt to justify a pedophilia ring involving gay men and underage boys.

“…and lo and behold in December of 1977, the DA broke the news of a ‘sex ring’ in nearby Revere, Massachusetts, indicting twenty-four people  on over a hundred felony counts involving older men allegedly having sex with younger men.” 

Well, no. They were accused of having sex with boys. Boys as young as eight. I guess if you consider an eight year old boy a “younger man”, then yes. That was the charge.

The DA called it ‘the tip of the iceberg’ and he set up a hotline asking the public for anonymous tips on homosexuals.

Okay, so that didn’t happen either. Garret Byrne set up a hotline asking for anonymous tips on pedophiles, not homosexuals. But I guess we all need our comforting fictions, our founding legends. So, even if the official GLAD version of what happened is bullshit, that’s fine by me. It’s just one of the many lies that we sodomites tell to advance our agenda. Kind of like Mathew Shepard, the gay gene, AIDS not “discriminating”, one in ten people being gay, and every thing else you hear coming out of our cocksucking mouths.

So let’s hope John Ward comes to the rescue for this generation’s Revere sex ring. The poor guys at Dreamboard need help and who better than GLAD to defend them?
