“View” Lefties Can’t See Why Child Porn for Teens on MTV Might Be a Problem
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | January 27, 2011 | Calvin Freiburger

Posted on 01/27/2011 9:31:34 AM PST by Walter Scott Hudson

The smug certainty with which leftists insist that they're better people than conservatives has always been an interesting phenomenon. We’re asked to believe that our opponents are more moral, more responsible, more enlightened, and more sensitive than we are one minute…and one of our betters turns around and asks what the big deal is about some outrageous case of moral degeneracy the next.

Such is the case of the latest pontifications from The View co-host Joy Behar. In a discussion of Skins, the new MTV show which might have broken child pornography laws by filming actors as young as 15 performing explicit simulated sexual acts, Behar suggested that the only reason people are getting worked up is because of the channel it’s on:

“I think it’s because it’s MTV, because on HBO as you pointed out, I believe ‘Oz’ was on there and they’re all doing some crazy stuff … and ‘Sex in the City’ was on HBO,” Behar said. “What’s the difference if you’re watching all these grown-ups talking about all of these — anal sex, etc., or young people? What’s the difference?”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure laws against producing child pornography don’t say, “nobody can do this except for HBO.”

This is the show where Whoppi excused rape as long as it wasn't rape-rape, and which defended Clinton for his sexual scandal with an intern.

They are "sex positive" 100%. So long as somebody is getting their rocks off, the View thinks it is double-plus good.

The Bible has some pretty good descriptions of the Left and the End Times.

I turned it off and this MTV revamp is a even bigger mess.

Folks, if you question the program turn it off!

Considering the fact the last time Joy had sex she had to bribe her sweetie with box of Milkbones, I can understand why she sees nothing wrong with child porn.

There are also disturbing “Skins” ads all throughout the subway system here in New York depicting one kid appearing to be stoned. His eyes are droopy and blood shot.

It sure does, and HE won't be mocked, that is a fact.

What I want to know is, Where are the parents of these children? Do they know their child is in these shows? If not, why not?

If they know, they too should be charged with contributing to their delinquency.

If they don't know: They should prosecute & SUE MTV.

I can't imagine as a parent learning that my child did these things, and on Nat'l TV.

To add a reference to Brave New World to your reference to 1984, they think encouraging the children in their sex play is a societal good.

partial:

28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

To liberals, it’s only a crime if the “wrong people” are doing it.

Doesn't this all hinge on the concept of man's fallen nature and God's implicit role in that?

If there is no God, there is no sin. And if human urges, in and of themselves, are not sinful, then why would sexuality be improper at any age? As Obama says, sin is a state of being inconsistent with "MY values."

This whole matter seems like just one more head-on collision between atheists/agnostics/secular humanists and those who believe in God.

Of course, to those who believe in God...understanding of the human animal is an extension of what God tells us about our sinful nature. We understand how disobeying his laws about sexual behavior leads to the erosion of the psyche, destruction of a man's character, and indeed significant impoverishment of the soul itself.

In this matter of pornography, we see where the worlds collide. There is no reconciliation IMHO between those who believe and those who do not.

As an aside, psychiatrists and therapists who deal with sexual addiction tend to agree with God, even when they refuse to recognize His existence. They understand that human sexuality is not a toy and certainly not something to be toyed with by immature people. It is a powerful human urge. It can destroy a person as surely as drugs or alcohol abuse.

This is just one more example of where the Left has fallen prey to its own permissiveness. The Left's understanding of human nature is too immature and myopic to be used as a template for constructive living.

MTV is in Santa Monica, why hasn’t the totally corrupt and worthless human being of a District Attorney Steve Cooley shut them down, seized all assets and arrested the whole bunch for Willfully and Knowingly Producing CHILD PORN for Distribution.??? The answer is he probably got an advanced copy to masturbate to. For I can think of NO OTHER PLAUSIBLE REASON.

When I was a kid in the late ‘60’s I was window shopping in a big bookstore. Remember this was the hippie era. I picked up this big, beautifully bound coffee table book. It was full of full-page photos of the hippie author’s two children; a boy and a girl. They were in sexually explicit poses with numerous photos of the pre-pubescent boy’s erect penis and the little girl’s vagina.

I was astonished that this book was in the main art-book section. Actually, I was astonished it had been printed, as every page was an indictment of the authors as pedophiles. It was a book by pedophiles for pedophiles. Yet, here it was in the mainstream book section sandwiched between Time Life and Better Homes and Gardens. If I saw this book today I’d march up to the manager and we’d have a talk. Then, I’d call county attorney’s office.

I suspect that a huge cross-section of liberals would see nothing wrong with this book. I suspect, that if I took this to the county attorney today that, although the book might be pulled from that store, nothing would happen to those involved with publication. After-all, who are we to judge others? By what moral high-horse can we gallop over their rights? (Oh, that God and Bible thing. Well, that’s fast disappearing, isn’t it?)
