In this day and age, conservative media outlets have to be very careful what they publish for fear of being accused of promoting hate and racial issues.
That same bar has not been set for liberals, though, a fact that was proven after a recent article on Vice Media seemed to express the wish that a serial killer would target and assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The article in which this statement appeared was written by Sofia Barrett-Ibarria. The topic was Aileen Wuornos, who was dubbed “the first female serial killer” after she was put to death by lethal injection, a woman who has been made into a sort of cult-hero by the #MeToo movement.
Wuornos was a prostitute who found herself on death row after being convicted on seven charges of first-degree murder. Wuornos went to her grave stating that the murders were all committed in self-defense.
In the story, the author posts quotes various people on social media as well as other sources, without really explaining just who these people are.
One quote, attributed to someone named Bailey, actually promotes violence against Justice Kavanaugh as well as grouping him in with the likes of Jeffrey Epstein.
The quote, as it appears in Barrett-Ibarria’s story, reads:
As reports of powerful men who abuse vulnerable women continue to surface, it’s hard to deny that survivors are craving stories of revenge—stories where victims not only live to survive the abuse, but fight back. “I think part of her appeal to me personally, in this cultural moment, is that Aileen Wuornos was a woman that men feared,” said Bailey. At a time when we are constantly inundated with stories like that of Jeffrey Epstein and Brett Kavanaugh, her story is an example of men facing repercussions for their actions. “A prostitute hunting men instead of being hunted is a deeply comforting story.”
While the quote is open to interpretation, it clearly sounds like the author is encouraging, or at the very least, hoping, that a woman gets revenge on Brett Kavanaugh (revenge that would presumably be for allegations that have already been discredited).
Not Even in the Same Class
Other than the obvious problem with this article, there is also the issue that someone like Brett Kavanaugh is being put into the same class as someone like Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender who killed himself rather than face his accusers.
Brett Kavanaugh is a distinguished Supreme Court justice who faced bogus allegations as part of an attack by the Democrat party and liberals who despised Donald Trump.
Besides the problem of hoping for violence against Kavanaugh and lumping him in with the likes of Jeffrey Epstein, it is also quite disturbing that a prostitute is being made out to be some type of hero.
Has this country dismissed morality so much now that a woman that willingly sold her body has become a cult hero to today’s youth? The sad thing is this lifestyle is exactly what the likes of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have promised to make legal throughout the entire country.
It’s the new America, patriots. Doesn’t it just make you beam with pride?
