rape football -paterno

I get 43,100,000 hits, and that is without any references to Penn St.'s disgraced coach. Now, some of those are pro football players, some high school, and some foreign soccer players. But, anybody who follows college football knows that players (although not coaches) get formally accused of sexual assault. A lot. And then, usually, the story goes away

The prototypical case is of the kind that makes up the central mystery in Tom Wolfe's A Man in Full: black player, white woman. There's not much of a media market for those kind of dog bites man stories, which is why so much publicity was given to the Duke lacrosse team hoax. (Similarly, "manager rapes aspiring boy band singer" or "movie producer rapes aspiring child star" are dog bites man stories that don't get much traction in the press.) 

College football is a great game. I hadn't been to a college football game since watching Plaxico Burress stomp all over Northwestern in the 1990s, but a neighbor gave me a couple of his season tickets to last Saturday's UCLA 29 - Arizona St. 28 upset at the Rose Bowl, and it was a terrific spectator sport experience.  

I heartily commend to aggressive rich men with a need to win that they try manipulating college football as a fine substitute for manipulating the U.S. government into bombing their relatives' tribal enemies for them. 

On the other hand, the Penn State scandal, much as it's a man bites dog story, provides an opportunity for intelligent conservatives to reflect upon how much energy and money they pour into college football and other zero sum sports, a little bit of which could go a long way in the real world.

EVANSTON, Illinois, Nov. 13, 1999 (Ticker) -- Plaxico Burress caught five passes for 164 yards and three touchdowns as No. 17 Michigan
State increased its chances for a New Year's Day bowl bid with a
34-0 romp over Northwestern in a Big Ten Conference game. Burress had a pair of 35-yard touchdown receptions and his 84-yard TD completed the scoring 2:10 into the fourth quarter.

What do you mean that some sports are "zero sum"?

Spectator sports in general are for losers. No matter who wins or loses, you lose each time.

Steve means that a lot of wealthy white conservative gentiles, such as T Boone Bickens, give tremendous sums of money to college sports programs. Sports is ultimately a zero gum game - for every win, there's a loss. There can be only one BCS champion per year and only half of all college football programs can be above average. Collectively, as a group, college sports boosters don't win anything.

If, instead, these affluent and competitive men funded conservative think tanks and media outlets, their money would generate an actual return for the society. For example, it'd be nice if T Boone Pickens donated a few hundred million to immigration restrictionist groups in order to do something about our longterm demographic change.

Jewish billionaires, such as Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, spend huge sums of money buying political support for Israel. Their longterm impact will be to secure the Jewish nation for the Jewish people. What will be the longterm impact of all these sports boosters? USC wins a few more BCS championship trophies over the next few years, as the country their ancestors built turns into something unrecognizable?

I think T Boone is quite happy with his investment. Oklahoma State is currently number two in the latest BCS poll.

"I heartily commend to aggressive rich men with a need to win that they try manipulating college football as a fine substitute for manipulating the U.S. government into bombing their relatives' tribal enemies for them."

A cheap shot at Jews, who have zero influence in college football. In fact, Center County, PA, where the Penn State campus is located, is overwhelmingly Germanic in ethnicity. One of the college administrators indicted in the cover-up, Gary Schultz, has a creepy Ernst Rohm look about him.

Attempting to the question, "How could anyone seeing a man doing to that kid what he was doing to him in the shower not immediately call the police or beat the crap out of the guy?" Jon Ritchie, former Stanford and Oakland Raider running back, who has known Sandusky since he was a teen, struggles with his own emotions to explain the first reaction of Mark McQueery, the young assistant who first discovered Sandusky and the kid in the shower.

It's a very moving, emotionally raw account from Ritchie (I admit to his having been my favorite Raider of the last 15 years) --very much worth watching if you have a few minutes.

Steve, I'm very disappointed to see you renew this argument you've made so many times before about football ("I heartily commend to aggressive rich men with a need to win that they try manipulating college football as a fine substitute for manipulating the U.S. government into bombing their relatives' tribal enemies for them."). If this scandal teaches us anything at all, it should be that bombing your tribal enemies is a much nobler pursuit than football, which seems to serve no other purpose than helping certain people get away with rape. I'd much rather my son grow up to be a lobbyist than a football fan.

You've completely missed the point. If a group does not currently spend its time and money on college football, but does spend time and money lobbying the gov't to bomb ethnic rivals, we would all be better off if that group did spend its time and energy on college football rather than lobbying for bombs...

Thats the whole point, they should divert their resources into football and away from politics.

Of course why should they waste their money on sports when they could be doing much more with it in the political arena?

The real message is for rich whites to stop throwing their cash away on sports and do something useful with it like jews do.

Jeez, short of Israel, Jews don't get much (other than what other people don't already get) collectively from the massive amount of taxes they have contributed to this country.

America is not abroad in wars across the middle east because Jews said/fund it so (although some may have been involved like other extremely wealthy people who benefit from war), it is because some how the common American has been convinced enough they need to be there and it feeds the expansion of the government (something governments always like). But.. I do think the sentiment is losing ground among the general populace, though the media and government are still pushing for more.

Reg C├Žsar said...

Speaking of football, Americans and the Middle East...

Several years ago everyone was shocked and/or entertained when a billionaire Floridian bought Manchester's powerful club in the Premier League. But it didn't hurt them any on the pitch.

Then Manchester's other, hopeless club was similarly bought, this time by a billionaire Semite from an even sandier peninsula. Now they sit atop the League, undefeated. (I don't know whether to wave my City scarf, or hide it.)

Different kind of football, different kind of Semite, but otherwise it's pretty close to what Steve proposed.

Best inside account of the JoePa pedophile coverup:

http://www.ology.com/sports/full-transcript-mike-francesa-interview-kim-jones-about-penn-state-scandal

money quote:


Francesa: ...He (Sandusky) was at practice in 2007 with a child, Mcqueary and Paterno at a closed practice. Now, if you’ve been to a closed practice, and I have, there are not a lot of people. There are no strangers there. Everyone’s accounted for. If a stranger’s there, he’s thrown out. That’s why it’s a closed practice. He obviously had to call in advance to say he was coming, or he had carte blanche to walk in and out of practice any time he wanted, he was Jerry Sandusky. He had been the pillar of the program for 23 years, but he walked in with a child in 2007--that makes Paterno and Mcquaery incredibly culpable and she did not dismiss them. You know Paterno a lot better than I do. Do you think it’s blind loyalty? Do you think it’s naivety? Do you think he went that far to protect the Paterno-Penn State brand? He’s at least guilty of those things, what do you think it is?

Jones: ...It was insulated, there was almost, and it’s a hard word to use right now, but an incestuous nature to that coaching staff. So many of them played for Joe, Jerry Sandusky played for Joe. Tim Curly, the athletics director, went to state college high school, played for Joe, and on a team that Jerry Sandusky coached. I’m not in any way shape or form offering excuses but if you understand that community you see how protecting their own was innate to them. I can’t explain to you, why Joe Paterno deep in his core, in those thoughts he had before he went to sleep at night, did not believe he had to do the right thing and protect these children. I cannot beleive the Joe Paterno we’ve come to know, and that I’ve covered, I can’t believe his heart is that black where he simply never thought about it again, and never thought about those poor kids who were looking for a male mentor, a strong man in their life and seemed to find one in Jerry Sandusky only to have him rape them, take away their childhood, and my guess, not knowing one of those victims, is that he ruined some, if not all of their lives.

Francesa: Without question. They knew, especially in a place that small. People talk, people know, coaches know. They knew this guy was a freak, they knew he was an animal. In 98’ Paterno gets that report, let’s say he confronts Sandusky, and says ya know “I can’t work with you anymore. You can go your own way.” Sandusky denies it to the moon “I’m a family man, they’re kids” and Joe buys it, because it’s so outside the realm of possibility that this guy’s is actually attacking little boys “Alright I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. One crazy kid.” When 2002 happened, that’s all gone. It’s no longer an incident. It’s now and who knows what else Joe knows, I mean he is Penn State, he runs the police force, it’s a little town, they must be hearing something. Yes, Joe tells Curley, but it never goes to the police, it would have been a huge story, it’s Penn State. What really hurts in the 23 pages, I read it twice, what comes off in there, is that the powers that be at Penn state, and Paterno didn’t even care to know a little boys name. They didn’t care enough about him to find out what happened to him, or what his name was. That seems almost so despicable, it almost makes Paterno look like a fraud for everything he ever stood for.

Anonymous said...

McQueary is a townie, a native of State College, PA. He attended State College High School and then walked-onto the PSU football team. He eventually earned a scholarship and was a 2 year starter at QB.

While at State College High, McQueary and one of Sandusky's adopted sons were teamates on the football team.

So when McQueary walked into the showers and witnessed Sandusky raping a child, Sandusky was not just a retired ole ball coach to McQueary. McQueary has probably personally known Sandusky since
he was a kid.

It's not a hyphen, it is a minus sign. When you put a term in a Google search with a minus sign at the front it means "search for pages with the other words, but do not return any page if it has the minus sign word in it.

Steve was trying to find out how much reporting is done on "football" teams and "rape" that do NOT mention Joe "Paterno".

Yes, why are Jews big in professional sports but not in college sports? I'd guess because sports aren't big in big city colleges or Ivy League colleges, but they did follow their pro teams growing up.

Well, can anyone really say that the amount of money poured into college football makes any sense at all? Not to mention, it makes white conservatives stupid, in that they'll fall over themselves to make the kinds of accomodations for black football players that the left wants them to make for blacks in general.

Hapalong Cassidy said...

Ahh yes, Plaxico Burress. He was from the Tidewater, Virginia area. One of the "What-ifs" I used to think about was if he hadn't gone to Michigan State and instead gone to my beloved Virginia Tech Hokies, teaming up with Michael Vick and maybe giving us the victory instead of the loss to Florida State in the national championship game. Of course, Plaxico was a big time recruit, and no big time recruits wanted to go to Virginia Tech back then.

Jews don't like sports. You must have a better idea...I don't know, competitive library-building? (Who finances those palaces in Boston and NYC? Boston's a town of less than a million, but their public library in Copley Square looks like it ought to be in the capital of a medium-sized country.)

Realistically, I think rich Jews are just paranoid about being exterminated, so they think they have to donate lots of money to keep their relatives from being killed. White gentiles can worry about football...

Sorry about the Mexican crack, BTW. I was more teasing than anything else (thus the implicit comparison to Beethoven).

travis said...

Jason Whitlock sent out tweet speculating that the victims might be black. If Penn State hires a black head coach to replace Paterno, then Whitlock is almost certainly right.

David said...

The hyphen was included in the search in order to point up the interesting fact that the current Penn State sex scandal is not the only rape scandal in college football. There is a large amount of sex out there, so to speak, and this fact is the point of the post.

These days, a significant number of institutions, from business to sports, appear to have somewhat more than the usual and expected amount of corruption.

Dan Kurt said...

re: Penn State and the legal fallout

Three questions:

1) What about the Statute of Limitations?

2) Have any victims been identified so that the press can rape them again?

3) Will the media now investigate Penn State's Michael E. Mann's Global Warming B.S. and the recent Penn State whitewash of his "science"?

This PSU story is like a crudely written heavy-handed hollywood morality play.

Could there anything more morally revolting in our society that a college football hero using the pretext of a charity to help at-risk kids to sexually molest them for over a decade with the explicit knowledge, assistance and approval of college's "cleanest" football program?

Well maybe - perhaps 10,000+ PSU students rioting in anger and demanding the return of their beloved decade+ pedo-enabling coach Paterno who oversaw the entire sordid affair with unquestioned authority.

In a smart career move, a cute PSU Public Relations major Jessica Sever organized a candlit vigil of more modest proportions to try to rehabilitate the shocking immoral public image of PSU students rioting. Sever's YouTube video discussing her initial reaction and identifying her as a PR major appears to have been pulled to make this vigil seem a more organic response to the PSU riots which is the story the MSM is pushing.

The whites masses are easily and fatally brainwashed by football (didn't see to many minorities). In today's debased culture, it is their only religion, community and identity for which they willfully blind themselves to even the most brazen despicable human crimes.

Latest news
Rumors are being investigated that Sandusky and Second Mile, a non-profit Sandusky founded in 1977 to help children, was pimping young boys to wealthy donors.
It seems some investors were getting returns! This affair is indeed murky. If you´re not into buggering little boys, college football is not a good investment.

josh said...

These guys are masters at covering up rape. Usually its a white college girl;so using the same "skill set" its easy to cover up the rape of a boy. I have the distinct impression a lot of these boys are black. They showed a blacked-out(sorry) outline of one mother on Nightline and she sure appeared to be black. I have long believed (this is where I veer off,but its what I have long thought)that modern sports people,specially da coaches,have a homo-erotic attachment to black maledom. Look at the players: they are hard-core ghetto tough guys; pumped up on every steroid they got;who work out obsessively,and are arrogant and conceited as hell. A gay mans ultimate dream? The way they constantly "stand by their man" as he is accused of one rape after another,and callously dispose of the victim's humanity,says to me that they do not have the sensibility of a man;theyre more like shrewish women. Is everyone gay? BTW the suggestion by Steve for the,uhm,Swedes to concentrate their insanity on football as opposed to the Iranians was a great one! Way to go Steve!

There is a certain undercurrent to this entire thing - no one in the sports media or the PSU trustees much liked Joe Pa, and they wanted him gone.

It bothered them that he accepted a lower quality football program in return for requiring more academically from his students.

Really, really convenient thing to happen. I think the trustees are probably gleeful about kids getting raped. Yay, we can finally fire this old fogey!

Disgusting behavior all around.

"College football is a great game."

Maybe if you dont watch the NFL it is. Last weeks "Game of the Century" was a snore and not just because it was low scoring. The Ravens and Steelers played in two low scoring games last year that were two of the best games all year. Last years Week 17 Bears-Packers game ended 10-3 and was alot of fun to watch. With a minute left in the 1st round playoff game between the Jets and Colts, 27 combined points had been scored and it was vastly superior to all the high scoring shootouts I've seen the past couple of years in college football.

Gambling and fantasy football are the main reasons the NFL is able to maintain fan interest in its regular season.

Whiskey said...

Steve the whole point about sports, ala the insight in "Albion's Seed" is that it builds community bonds. People don't just unite "because" if they are not bound by blood, kin, and tribe. The Scandinavian/Viking inhabitants of the Danelaw, in East Anglia, and later in New England, used communal sports as just one more institution to bind people together.

How the heck ELSE will you have people bound together? Churches (that's a good one!) TV? [Too fragmented, 500 channels and nothing on, besides its all feminine/gay now.]

Either you just give up and hand power over to whoever can be most tribal, and have everything based on family/kin networks (which leaves out most White Americans) or you use existing institutions (college sports, voluntary associations) to provide ties among people absent the fascist/corporatist/socialist model.

Whiskey said...

As for "bombing people" that is what great powers do. Russia did not bomb the bejabbers out of Georgia because "the Jews" or devious Iraqis or devious Azerbaijanis or Iranians used mind-control rays on Putin and Medvedev. But because Russian interests dictated that Georgia be made into an example. Same for say, China and Vietnam. As long as the US pushes away oil development (the Keystone XL pipeline is dead, the oil will now go to China) to "preserve the environment" we will bomb the hell out of people in the ME and elsewhere to get cheap(er) oil. Because you can't run society on unicorn farts and rainbows.

And that will be true if a Democrat (Clinton, Operation Desert Fox; Obama and Libya, drone-whack-a-mole) or Republican is in power.

Whiskey said...

You won't get rid of football or lots of money being expended on it, because it promotes social unity and ties among an otherwise fractured people. In places in the South it is often the only thing that allows pride and communal spirit. So any notion that it will go away is as deluded as the OWS betting on unicorns and rainbows again.

Nor will you get rid of War. Iran is a growing nuclear threat, Pakistan will soon have more nukes than France (and moves them around in unmarked vans). Iran has made an agreement to put missiles in Venezuela. Both nations want very expensive oil (since that's all they got) and the US wants it cheap. So you'll get war, one way or another, inevitably.

There are worse things than War. Being conquered, for one. Just ask any people annihilated by another.

As the population becomes less literate [and more innately illiterate - we are just about at the tipping point where 50% of all the babies in this country are non-white], mainstream software must adapt by becoming more & more simplistic.

MSFT has been struggling with this problem for years - it's why the last useful EXPLORER.EXE search functionality was released with Windows XP, in 2001.

Ophir travels the route between the work crews. "Look what's been done here in less than a year," he says proudly. "When there is no interference, I can fly."

When he's finished there, the Corps of Engineers should hire him to start at Brownsville and keep building till he reaches San Diego.

Jewish billionaires, such as Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, spend huge sums of money buying political support for Israel. Their longterm impact will be to secure the Jewish nation for the Jewish people. What will be the longterm impact of all these sports boosters? USC wins a few more BCS championship trophies over the next few years, as the country their ancestors built turns into something unrecognizable?

Response:

Have you ever really thought it through though?

Win wars, win football games, win territory, win yards, conquer land, conquer teams, inflate your ego, feel proud, blah blah, then you die.

What difference does any of this stuff make?

Haim feels good inside, goyim feels good inside, they're both elevating their quality of life.

None of it matters on the outside. White nationalism is so silly.

Ah, two stories in a row with a Tom Wolfe angle. Do you remember that scene in the book “Bonfire of the Vanities” where the old New York lawyers and judges get together and discuss one of their colleagues who has retired to some luxury village on the Carolina coast? One of them asks, what’s he going to do down there, have the breakfast special at Denny’s every morning?

Right.

ESPN has no influence.

Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive has no influence.

Jewish college presidents like Graham Spanier of Penn State have no influence.

Something no one seems to talk about - Joe paterno is 85 years old. The guy was already an old man in the late 90s. How compos mentis is the guy? Has he really been coaching the last 10 years or is he just a figure head the school has been propping up?

There is also the scary possibility that as an old Roman Catholic who may well have had experiences with some queer priests during his own childhood, JoePa simply may not see child molestation the way we young ones do. For people of his generation it was something that happened that was wrong but that you NEVER talked about. It was accepted in earlier times that some men had "wrong sinful urges" and people tended to pity those men more than worry about the effect on their charges.

This reminds me of a fun one I pulled on my father and brother many years ago.

We were at a Japanese restaurant that had a banner full of Oriental characters. I said, "I can translate that banner for you" and my papa said, "Good for you, honey! What does it say?"

And I said, "Fuck you, American suckers!"

Steve, I'm still having trouble with the logic. The premise is football seems peculiarly more endemic than other sports to harboring rapists, and therefore MORE people should start obsessing over football?

"White nationalism is so silly."

And yet every other type of nationalism--black nationalism, asian nationalism, hispanic nationalism, arab nationalism, israeli nationalism, etc.--is not only not derided, but is actively encouraged. Some things are only silly when whites do them, I guess. Granted, I am white, so perhaps I just don't get the joke.

You must just be toying with Steve. The point was to come up with news stories about, as the song says, "the ever present football-player rapist" that did NOT involve Paterno. S by removing the little dash, you completely miss the point and come up with the stories he was NOT looking for.

"Jason Whitlock sent out tweet speculating that the victims might be black. If Penn State hires a black head coach to replace Paterno, then Whitlock is almost certainly right."

The Washington Post reported that Penn St. Board of Trustees "reached out" to gauge Virginia head coach Mike London's interest in taking over the mess at PSU before firing Paterno on Wednesday night. London, who is black and in his second season at Virginia, has UVA football on track to appear in a bowl game for the first time since 2007. That Penn State targeted London, a relatively obscure coach who's only been an NCAA Division IA head coach for a mere two years (and whose [modest] success at a non-football power is limited to the 2011 season -- they're hardly going after a high profile, 'big name' coach), likely indicates that their coaching search will focus on African American candidates.

Does that point to the race of the purported victims? Could be. But if I were a Penn State Trustee, I'd be pushing for a black coach, regardless of the ethnicity of the victims. The reasoning is simple: in order to begin rebuilding their image, Penn State needs some good press. Hiring the Big Ten's "only African American head football coach" (there are none right now) will accomplish that. Nothing would expedite the Nittaly Lions' PR turnaround -- indeed, nothing would help the Nittaly Lions regain the moral high ground -- more quickly than having a 'Magic Negro' (definition) roaming the sidelines out in 'Happy Valley'. If London is unavailable, maybe Penn St. can get Morgan Freeman to run that football program. Sure, he probably wouldn't actually be able to coach the team, but that shouldn't deter Penn St.: after all, Paterno didn't actually coach any football for the last ten years either. And yeah, they might have to stop doing that "white out" thing in the stands of Beaver Stadium, but that would be a small price to pay in order to get the media back on their side (the same media that's out for blood now). With the moral superiority that would come from having a black head coach, nobody outside of the most invirterate would be able to (publicly) root against Penn St.

Carol,

This post confuses Tom Wolfe's "A Man In Full" with "I Am Charlotte Simmons." Wolfe's protagonist in "A Man In Full" is a successful, black Atlanta businessman. In "Charlotte Simmons," Charlotte drunkenly loses her virginity to a very unsympathetic white fratboy. She immediately regrets giving it up to such a "dirtbag" type. In real life (especially on a college campus, let alone at Duke -- where the novel is more or less set), she'd probably have legal grounds for charging him with date rape.

Most college football teams outside of the SEC carry a significant number of "Caucasoids" on their rosters. What's more, many of them get on the field. If you think Stanford vs. Oregon was like Burning Man, you obviously didn't see Northwestern's win over Rice yesterday. That affair was whiter than a Mos Def concert, or 'Occupy Montpelier.'

Meant to type "inveterate" racist, as in "nobody but the most inveterate racist could root against a Penn State football program headed by a saintly African American head coach." Unfortunately, the dreaded beach ball screen freeze kept happening while writing that comment, and never got back to proofread it all.

BTW, isn't it an interesting coincidence that the Sandusky arrest/Penn State fiasco/Joe Paterno firing happened mere days after the team that Paterno was said to be coaching backed into the win (#409) that put him in first place for all time wins by a Division I head football coach? Too bad ol' JoePa spent most of what would turn out to be his last game nodding off to sleep in his "coach's seat" up in the press box (at least he appeared to be), otherwise he probably would've noticed.

And to think, just a decade ago, Penn State boosters & officials were furiously trying to push the old man out. Good thing JoePa pulled rank and stuck it out all the way to magic number 409!

maybe. I don't know nuts about football. However, I'm a little more familiar with homos. One that I worked with, who cheerfully announced to anyone concerned that he had a "husband", told me that black guys were not considered appealing to gays, and that was general.
In prisons, blacks prey first on young whites; only if there's not enough of them do they go after young blacks. Whites prey on whites.
This is common knowledge, much written about.
However, as I said, I don't know about football, and Mr. Sandboxy may have just taken whoever he had access to.

@Dan Kurt

I was wondering about #2 myself--how long would it be before the ever-nosy internet dug up the identities of these unfortunate kids.

That must have been heavy in my subconscious before I went to sleep last night, because I dreamt that I'd somehow gotten a hold of the Grand Jury's list of Sandusky's victims. I remember reading over the somewhat anonymized names of each victim: it was stuff like M. Hernandez, age 9, student; K. Thompson, age 10, student. And then there was one on the list that really stood out: J. Lewis, age 78, entertainer and telethon promoter.

This was the first thing on my mind when I woke up this morning. I have no idea what this says about my subconscious or mental health.

"MINOR ATTRACTED PERSON" a protected minority?

Dr Swier asks:

"...Who benefits from keeping a gay coach, who rapes little boys in the locker room on the payroll? The gay community and those who support it of course. Am I out of bounds talking about this? I think not given the history of the open support for the gay agenda in our colleges and universities. It all began at Indiana University in the 1940s. According to "How Alfred C. Kinsey’s Sex Studies Have Harmed Women and Children" by Robert H. Knight:

"Kinsey also based his liberal view of child rape on research tabulated in Graph Tables 31-34 in the male volume, which chronicled systematic sexual abuse of boys aged 2 months to 15 years old. Kinsey concluded that the boys, despite violent reactions and crying, enjoyed being manually and orally stimulated by pedophiles. To Kinsey, what most people thought was rape was merely 'sex play' with children, which was essentially harmless, particularly if the child gave 'consent.' He also included this chilling observation: 'Orgasm is in our records for a female babe of 4 months.'


The Kinsey Institute, situated on Indiana University’s campus, continues to refuse to open the records of the Kinsey child sex data to public scrutiny. So you have a major university in 1948 allowing pedophiles to rape little boys and labeling it scientific research into human sexuality. Fast forward to today and you have the U.S. Department of Health (DOH) declaring children are "sexual beings". The U.S DOH states, "teenagers may 'experiment' sexually with members of the same sex regardless of whether they are gay or straight." So according to the DOH Penn State was simply helping teenagers experiment sexually with members of the same sex, namely coach Sandusky.

To add fuel to the fire we have major universities involved in a Summer Symposium in August 2011 hosted by B4U-ACT in Baltimore, Maryland. "Speakers addressed the around 50 individuals in attendance on themes ranging from the notion that pedophiles are 'unfairly stigmatized and demonized' by society to the idea that 'children are not inherently unable to consent' to sex with an adult. Also discussed were arguments that an adult’s desire to have sex with children is 'normative' and that the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) ignores the fact that pedophiles 'have feelings of love and romance for children' in the same way adult heterosexuals and homosexuals have romantic feelings for one another." [My emphases]


What was the purpose of this symposium? To redefine pedophiles as "minor-attracted persons".


So former Penn State coach Sandusky needs to be protected as a "minor-attracted person" according to Dr. Berlin, Dr. Sorentino and Dr. Sadler. This attitude is prevalent on college campuses across America. Homosexual behaviors, including gay men attraction to boys, is condoned and even promoted as healthy and a civil right. How can you deny the civil rights of Sandusky, after all he is gay and his behaviors are protected. Penn State certainly covered up what Sandusky was doing since 1998. He systematically recruited boys using the programs he created to bring him in contact with little boys. Why are we now shocked that this happened? It is the natural course of an agenda where evil behaviors are pushed to the limit in the name of civil rights. Pedophilia is simply another step down this road.


Perhaps we should thank Penn State for pushing the gay envelope to its ultimate end? Anything and everything goes at Penn State University, don't you agree?

JoePed for President 2012! said...

Who says JoePa and PSU students put football above all else?

The first DA probe in 1998 had police documenting Jerry asking a mother for forgiveness for what he had done to her son, acknowledging that he would never get such forgiveness and "wishing he were dead". This was 4 years before McQuery gave Paterno the details of Sandusky's shower rape in 2002.

This certainly got back to Joe. As a result, everyone outside the loop was shocked to find out Sandusky, his heir apparent and mastermind of "Linebacker U" was no doubt forced into "retirement" by Joe at the relatively young age of 55.

As a result of Sandusky's departure, Penn State immediately went from a long winning streak to losing, missing the next three bowl seasons entirely (although maybe JoePa didn't see that big dropoff coming).

Equally surprising, no major college football program offered Sandusky any coaching position despite his remarkable success as the Defensive coordinator at "Linebacker U". JoePa probably spread the word around about Sandusky's predeliction.

So, at least it appears that JoePa keep his child molester friend inhouse at PSU diddling underprivleded kids who were the least likely to blow cover and damage his football program.

It does raise the problem that a much wider circle of people in college football knew enough about Sandusky to avoid hiring him.

If any of you are search experts, is there any way to a do a 'not only' search? Specifcally, say I'm trying to find papers circular oligonucleotides and IVS, but circular dichroism is a very common analytic technique. If I search for [circular oligonucleotide] I get craploads of irrelevant stuff because they mention circular dichroism. If I search for [circular oligonucleotide -"circular dichroism"] I'll miss every paper on circular oligos that mentions circular dichroism.

Is there any way to search for circular oligotides and filter out results where "circular" only appears in the term "circular dichroism?

rob said...

Actually on subject, I would be very surprised if non-pedophiles are covering for pedos very often: they're just too squicky to normal people. It seems more likely that it's more a Catholic Church-style coverup where the MO was more like pedos helping pedos. Sandusky got away with it for so long, I would be very surprised if he were the only one at either Penn or his charity.
