The Death of Jesse Dirkhising
Capitalism Magazine ^ | March 18, 2001 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 01/13/2002 11:43:03 AM PST by gohabsgo

[CAPITALISMMAGAZINE.COM] "Jesse slowly suffocated and died." A jury heard those chilling words this week in the opening statement of a little-noticed Arkansas trial. A mother heard those heartbreaking words spoken about her 13-year-old son, Jesse Dirkhising, whom prosecutors say died at the hands of two men who raped and murdered the boy during a marathon torture session.

The trial raises grave questions about society's increasing tolerance of gay pedophilia. But in New York and Los Angeles, the national press hounds were more interested in covering the trial of rap star Sean "Puffy" Combs than in reporting on the tragic death of Jesse Dirkhising.

The details are sickening: On Sept. 26, 1999, Jesse was at the Rogers, Ark., home of a family friend, 39-year-old Davis Carpenter, and Carpenter's roommate and alleged gay lover, 23-year-old Joshua Brown. According to a local Associated Press account, prosecutor Bob Balfe told jurors Wednesday that "the boy had been given a strong sedative, then restrained while his own underwear was stuffed into his mouth and held in place with duct tape. Brown then folded Jesse into position atop a bed while supporting the boy's body with pillows."

"While Jesse was bound and helpless and naked in this position ... he was repeatedly raped ...over a period of hours," Balfe said. "Jesse slowly suffocated and died." The prosecution says Brown raped and sodomized Jesse with various objects, including food, while Carpenter stood in the bedroom doorway watching and masturbating. According to a police affidavit, Brown took a break from the assault to eat a sandwich. When he returned, prosecutors say, he discovered that Jesse was not breathing. Carpenter then called police, who found the boy naked and near death on a bedroom floor.

Police gathered evidence from the men's apartment that included lurid drawings showing a bound person, written descriptions of a homosexual assault, pieces of paper describing objects with which Jesse was sodomized, and a printed grocery receipt listing duct tape and other items found near Jesse's body. The defense will argue that Jesse -- outnumbered, overpowered, overdosed, and strapped helplessly to a mattress -- was a willing and consenting participant in this sexual torment.

This was a child. A 13-year-old child. A boy who should be riding a scooter and wrestling with his friends and watching cartoons and doing his algebra homework. That the defense could even dare make a public case for consensual sex between a 13-year-old boy and two adult men shows how far this country has sunk into the cesspool of moral apathy and cowardice. Public leaders are so worried about not offending gay political interest groups that they remain silent about the mainstreaming of homosexual predation.

The defense of gay pedophilia has metastasized deep and far into the national conscience. As Mary Eberstadt wrote in The Weekly Standard recently, "Today's pressures to normalize pedophilia are not the result of some omnipotent and unstoppable taboo-devouring social and moral juggernaut; they are occurring one bookstore, one magazine, one publisher and advertiser, one author and editor and consumer at a time."

One of the nation's leading gay magazines, "XY," is targeted to readers as young as 12. It features photo spreads of half-naked men and publishes profanity-laced articles supporting lowering the age of consent. Instead of universal condemnation, the North American Man-Boy Love Association (which advocates normalizing and decriminalizing sex between adult males and boys) receives praise and sympathy from liberal magazine writers and literary critics.

NAMBLA is the subject of late-night comedy monologues and the beneficiary of pro bono legal aid from the American Civil Liberties Union. Opponents of the group are smeared as right-wing homophobes; they and others who have criticized the media for ignoring Jesse Dirkhising's death are tarred as anti-gay propagandists.

Political correctness is slowly suffocating our sense of public outrage over behavior that is perverse, coercive, and wrong. This is why the brutal death of Jesse Dirkhising has been met with deaf ears and a cruel collective shrug.


TOPICS: Editorial; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: homosexualagenda; jessedirkhising; molestation; murder; rape
The more people become aware of the concerted efforts of the ACLU, NAMBLA, pro-homosexual, anti-family, and anti-Christian agenda, the more outraged they will become. Since the media are too chicken---- to address the obvious, on a moral basis, the public is on it's own. In California, we voted by a 61% margin for Prop 22. Governor Gray Davis, along with his homesexual activists, are working their tails off to trash Prop 22. The day may come wherein a parent is jailed for a hate crime when telling his/her child that homosexuality is wrong. You don't think so? Take a look at what Davis has done with AB25, and what he is planning on doing this January 18 with AB1338. You have time to let Davis know exactly how you feel about this. Here's his e-mail: governor@governor.ca.gov

Thanks for the post. I don't remeber the "EXACT" numbers but I think, nation wide, the Matthew Shepherd story was mentioned about 3,000 times and the Jesse Dirkhising story about 80.

How Sad.

The press will pick up on a fat guy beating up a little guy with Napolean complex, but they won't say a word about 2 homos kidnapping, raping and murdering a little boy. Sick.

Please note that my last post is not meant to make light of the death of Mr. Costin. It's horrible that he died. I'm just saying that he knowingly got into a fight with a bigger man whereas little Jesse in no way brought about his own demise.

We are outnumbered..or out-spent by liberal perverts.

We're neither outnumbered or out-spent. There are just too many of us who think that all we have to do is type away at a keyboard and we've done somethng. Well, we ain't done sh--.

That trial was covered like stink on shit up here in MA.

I've seen how the h-mos wield their power just like Sharpton, Jackson, the NAACP and NOW.

They have the major media outlets in their back pocket. And heres is the reason.

If you are in the arts, journalism or media, you are encouraged to be avant garde.

Don't mock anything thats stupid... it could become the new trend.

Embrace everything, for in reality... what's really wrong?

Simple answer? Of course it is. I worked in publishing for over 25 years and never really fit in with my fellow “creatives”.

I would listen to my co-workers bash the shit out of Reagan and Bush. But when I debated them on their statements I was always ostracized.

These people do not want to discuss, they want you to shut up! They will talk to a point and close off all communication. Game over... you lose.

This is the simple reason why the Dirkhising case has been swept under the carpet. That is why the Poundstone case is almost invisable.

That is why our government susidizes artwork showing the Virgin Mary, covered in feces.

The lunatics are putting the sane into the asylum.

Doesn`t suprise me, just look at the growing number of homo-defenders here on Freerepublic. What gets me is that they usually do not dispay the same ardent level of condemnation of homo-molesters, like NAMBLA, that they display defending their pink triangle wearing friends.

I live in Cincy, and I've never even heard tell of this case. You can guarantee that if this had been a straight man, married man, or especially a priest or minister, the media would have been going nuts on this.

The sad thing is the only crime in a liberal society is intolerance. In a normal society, people would be concerned that a group like NAMBLA even exists, let alone supporting it.

"These people do not want to discuss, they want you to shut up! They will talk to a point and close off all communication. Game over... you lose."

Amen! I've been arguing with these people on another board for months, and that is exactly what they want. If you nail them with facts, they either A) Switch to an emotional appeal B) Restate their original argument C) Change the subject D) Go on a Christian bashing E) Let it drop and start the argument again later.

What happened to these satanic creatures? Were they convicted? If so, what was the sentence? In a just world, it would be death. Failing that, they would be killed in prison.

Thanks. That's certainly better than nothing. Still, I'd say the mission is "half accomplished," if you get my drift.

"There are just too many of us who think that all we have to do is type away at a keyboard and we've done somethng."

I very much agree with you. Here are some things to consider doing.
Sign up for the American Family Association's action alert at http://www.afa.net/. They will send you mailings on various issues of interest to social conservatives. They also have an activism link. You can also use their information and contact your senators and representative on your own.
Check out the Concerned Women for America site at http://www.cwfa.org/main.asp. There are a lot of state chapters of CWA. You can type the name of your own state on their search button to see what's going on near you, and, if you wish, you can do volunteer work for your state chapter. This group is a Christian group, and if you're not Christian, they should be able to direct you to other similar groups if thet exist in your area. If you're not comfortable being in the spotlight, political groups always need people to do things like stuff envelopes.
There are people on this site who get involved in their schools in various ways - the PTA, the library. They keep tabs on what books the local elementary school has, i.e., "King to King", "Heather Has Two Mommies", etc. Work with other parents if your child's school is pushing a political agenda. You will be less likely to be ripped to shreds or simply disregarded by left wing people if you work with a group.
A web site mentioned on FR is that of a Canadian woman who grew up in a homosexual household. It is at http://www.dawnstefanowicz.com/. I haven't contacted her, but I would think that young gay rights proponents and young people in general might be open to viewing her site even if they're not open to us.
I think that young people should know of the existence of the 1987 article, "The Overhauling of Straight America" and the follow-up book, "After the Ball - How America will conquer its fear and hatred of Gays in the 90s" by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. The Overhauling article is about six pages long and could be handed out to young people. Both detail a campaign to make homosexuality respectable. I think that young people should know that the selling of homosexuality has been no different from the selling of any other product.
Basically, just make your voice heard in circles other than conservative ones. There are some differences of opinion on this site, but we're mostly preaching to the choir.
These are some ideas, and I hope that other people can add to this list.
When you consider how the morals of this country have been degraded by a relatively small group, we should be able to make our voices heard. We're still in the majority. Mainstream media is less powerful than it was because of the Internet. A lot can be done by using the Internet.
