“Conspiracy theorists have found a new outrage to respond to, this one in Tucson, Arizona.
An armed group called Veterans on Patrol is demanding that authorities recognize a homeless camp they found on private property to be a child sex-trafficking camp.
Authorities have found no evidence that there was a child-sex camp on the site, even though they have brought in investigators and a police cadaver dog to search the area. But the lack of evidence has done nothing to prevent these claims from catching on among far-right online conspiracy theorists.
The speed at which these accusations have spread is yet another example of how fringe beliefs, nurtured in dark corners of the internet, can blossom in a deeply polarized era.
Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory — an elaborate offshoot of the debunked “pizzagate” conspiracy theory, which claimed Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring in the basement of a pizza shop that had no basement — have been particularly gripped by Meyer’s claims. The “pizzagate” theory inspired one person to fire an AR-15 rifle in the restaurant.”
As usual…the unfounded claims run rampant.
…The “rape trees” weren’t actually rape trees…
…But once the conspiracy theorists get something into their heads…everybody else has to suffer from their ignorance…
This is the problem with laymen and zealots deciding they are “authoritative investigators”…
Their incompetence is the source of all sorts of trouble and suffering…frequently for people, other than themselves.
This is why it annoys me so badly, when these people wont pull their heads out of their own rear ends…
…They’re just clueless idiots, running around and causing trouble.
We are the ones who have to live in this world, with all of their B.S.
…Many of us are so, so eternally sick of it…We’re just done tolerating this nonsense…
…Why cant we have them all committed to a mental institution, and get them out of everybody’s hair?
…It’s where a lot of them belong.
When are you sorts of people who do this type of stuff going to get it through your heads?…
…You are not helping anyone, or anything, in any way, shape or form, by working up the public into a frenzy, over your wild goose chases!…
In fact…your notorious incompetence only hurts things.

A tiny bit of elaboration…based on my comments in this post.
My Original Comment:
Almost threw this post straight into the trash, after encountering the negative “pedophile” comment…
It’s the sort of thing I’ve talked about in the past…
…In the atheist community, “pedophilia” is a rather typical talking point…always used in a manner to slight and demean the target.
…It’s a cheap, bigoted, hysterical tactic…which exposes a gross shortcoming within the atheist community.
Way too often…I find myself listening to some type of atheist media, thinking “this is really good”…and simultaneously putting together the post…when deep, or late, into the production…somebody slides in a nasty, snarky comment about “pedophiles”…
…A few times, I’ve posted the media…without having had the chance to get to the end [which I might do, a day or two later]…just to find out there is this sort of “middle finger” included in the media, for no good or intelligent reason.
…Why the hell do so many atheists have to be hell bent, on this ignorance?
Pedophile phobia is damn near cliché, in the atheist community.
You can barely watch any atheist media, without anticipating at least one swipe at “pedophiles”.
…I’m not just tired of hearing it…
…I’m tired of always feeling like I’m obliged to comment, on just what a brain dead, a-hole thing that was to do [on the part of self proclaimed “intelligent, fair minded truth seekers”, at that].
There is the obvious elephant in the room, that I am a pedophile myself…and I’m just fed up with the self entitlement of people, to endlessly take swipes at “pedophiles”…
…But there is also the real world reality, I’m quite painfully aware of…that religious institutions are literally quite ruthless towards people like me, who are pedophiles…or who otherwise like young people in a sexual manner.
I grew up in this setting…as a homosexual pedophile…And the church didn’t promote a damn thing, that encouraged me in a positive way, while going through my situation…
…In fact…it was the source of deep, dark, fucked up psychological hell…
Yet…there is this smug tendency amongst atheists…to go on insinuating as though being a pedophile in the Christian church, is akin to being at Disneyland.
Reality about this toxic environment, for anybody who is sexually unaccepted…is that it commonly makes you suicidal…It is “soul” destroying…It is poison…It will leave you psychologically maimed, for life….
You atheists out there who imply such things, clearly never experienced this first hand…Because your arrogant asses don’t have the first fucking clue, what you are talking about.
Pedophiles, hebephiles and ephebophiles are found in every social group and demographic…A fraction of the religious community, is “pedophilic”…
…We also exist in the atheist community, Sherlock…
…Oh dear!…Shall the rest of the world start ignorantly railing against the atheist community, for being “a pedophile group”?…”a sanctuary for child rape”?…
…For once in your lives, would you actually think critically about an issue, currently trapped in the worst place of social ignorance and hysteria, as opposed to staying in your cozy, ultra easy, momentum riding, bashing religion and assorted social outcasts?!…
…Being both a pedophile and an atheist…I can tell you…
…being an atheist is pathetic easy, in comparison to being a pedophile in this world.
It’s time to put the identity politics away…and stop appealing to false stereotypes and strawmen.
Given the outcast and unjustly maligned nature of the atheist community…the people amongst it should know better, than to employ the same type of bigotries towards other minorities.
If the atheist community valued it’s integrity…it would stop doing this.

“ABC cancels ‘Roseanne’ after racist tweet from star Roseanne Barr.”
I knew on a gut level…it felt like there was some reason, why I didn’t like this guy…
…Keep watching a little bit longer, and we find our reason.
Trying to soft peddle this type of vicious, organized campaign from self appointed speech police as being “how an employer feels about employing [the speaker]”, is disingenuous…it shows absolutely zero scruples…and it is about as disrespectful to the very concept of open dialogue, as one can get.
Even if certain types of a-hole behavior set a person up for the “karma” argument…being an a-hole on the internet in your spare time, should not get you severed from your survival lifeline.
Roseanne is a bad example…because she doesn’t need the money…she’ll be fine…she just got a blow to her ego…
…It’s when this vicious tactic is turned on the “grass roots” community, of every day people who are slaves to the system…that this becomes especially heinous…and wrecks terrible destruction.
Here are a few reasons, why any intelligent, humane person will refuse to have anything to do with this noxious practice:
01) It drives people out of the main population, and into like minded “hive” communities.
If somebody cannot survive in the main population, because their source of income has become unstable…or nonexistent…they will commune amongst like minded people, who will support them…hire them…allow them to survive…
Take a bow…you just ostracized and isolated someone, giving a foundation for even deeper rifts down the road.
02) It affords important speech only to the financially independent.
If everybody has to cower in fear, over the possibility of offending the wrong thought police…you have just inflicted the worst form of censorship imaginable, over the widest range of the common population…It will only be the people who can afford to be without employment, who will openly say the hard things, which are socially unpopular.
Take a bow…you just cut off free speech from the people who need it the most…and handed it over to a minority of privileged people…who likely don’t even need it, a fraction as much.
…Because of you…free speech only belongs to the privileged, and the people who echo mundane pop culture talking points…
03) It inhibits science and research.
These tactics have already been employed, to derail empirical research on taboo issues…and it continues to be employed, to the same end…certainly not to the benefit of society.
There are plenty enough professional researchers, who understand that MAP issues are grossly misrepresented in mainstream culture…but they wont openly speak out, nor professionally touch the subject…because they realize to do such, is career suicide…and the clueless, screaming idiots can bring them down, by sheer force of overwhelming them and the people and institutes they associate with.
It has absolutely nothing to do, with who is in the right…
…It has everything to do with dogma and bigotry, prohibiting understanding of the facts…
…And you imagine we’re supposed to accept the morally outraged, ignorant masses, dominating and controlling who can speak?…and who can seek authoritative understanding?
Take a bow…you just raped and murdered, one of the most pure tools we have, for bringing people together and building a peaceful world.
04) It distorts people’s perception of reality, when only certain people are allowed to speak out.
Too many people are living in a bubble…And for as much lip service as we give this concept…most people seem to be rejecting open dialogue, and getting to know people who are different from them [to discover that they are not so monumentally different from them, after all].
In the absence of an alternative voice…we don’t get to know the reasons why, people genuinely have different stances from our own.
…and it’s easy to demonize the people, who you don’t know, don’t interact with, or don’t respect as fellow human beings.
Not only this…but the isolated reaffirming of stereotypes and stigmas aimed at “the other” people, is a form of psychological conditioning [brainwashing], which can usher people into extreme distortions…the likes of which can lead them into behaving violently…or otherwise destructively, and harmful towards others.
Take a bow…you just gave a boost to culture wars.
Trying to force someone into remaining silent, when all they are doing is expressing an opinion, is always wrong and indefensible.
Even if they happen to be acting like an a-hole…it is wrong, disgusting behavior, for anyone to attempt to destroy someone’s ability to survive.
There is no absolving for these terror groups, who work to get slaves to the system fired from their jobs, over having expressed “the wrong thought” [according to their own, subjective bias and bigotry]…
There are certain lines you don’t cross…and this is one of them…
…The people who think this practice is “so wonderful and effective”, are creating a monster…which can come around to destroy anybody at all…Including any of their own…
This is not what a healthy society does.
I condemn this practice, in the most clear manner possible…
…It belongs in the same trash heap, as the hysterical stunts which gave rise to the Salem witch trials.
You can be far more effective, and worthy of respect…by genuinely dialoging with people…as opposed to trying to shut down, everybody who’s ever expressed anything you don’t like.

“Following mass protests by citizens, India has introduced tough new laws that will see pedophiles executed for their crimes.
The Indian Government has approved the death penalty for anyone who is found guilty of raping children under the age of 12.
The change in legislation followed sweeping protests by millions of citizens who were demanding a harder line to be taken for child sex offenses.
In response, lawmakers have passed a new bill issuing the strongest punishment possible for pedophilia, branding them “demons.”
Of course…I’m never going to defend the literal rape of children [or anyone, of any age]…
…but, seriously?…”pedophiles are demons”?…

“CLEVELAND – Parents need to be extra vigilant today because child abusers and pedophiles are on the prowl.
News 5 spoke exclusively with a man who’s tracking down those criminals, and his new study exposes more about who these perpetrators are.
“It is a rabbit hole, and depends on how far you want to go down,” said Dr. Jesse Bach, Director Emeritus for the Imagine Foundation, a non-profit developing research and recovery services for sex trafficking and pedophile victims.
On April 25, sex traffickers and pedophiles parade a teddy bear symbol around that looks happy and innocent, but it represents their very dark world. The symbol signals they’re all in the same club, and a pathway to trade tips and tricks on how to get their next victim. What might be more disturbing is who these perpetrators are.”
There’s so much false information here, that this “report” is just incompetent.
“Pedo Bear” is a symbol of pedophile mockery, which was created and promoted by 4chan. It is not a symbol of Alice Day, nor IBLD. No self respecting MAP I’ve ever known [in almost twenty years of involvement with the MAP community], takes this symbol seriously.
They dump a few unrelated assertions about “predators preying on children, sharing tips and human sex trafficking”…
…When the day is merely one of positive observation, and MAP community…
…Then they go on to indict law enforcement, fire fighters and politicians in all of this…
…I’m certainly not suggesting there aren’t a lot of hypocrites out there, in law enforcement and politics…And I do appreciate the public admission…
In this setting, it’s just word diarrhea.
…It has nothing to do with Alice Day.
These shysters are trying to assassinate the character, of a harmless day of observation.
They even have the gall, to interview an alleged victim of sex trafficking…
…This has absolutely nothing to do with Alice Day, whatsoever!
