Fox News star Tucker Carlson is warning that the corporate media and political elite in Washington D.C. are pushing for society to “tolerate pedophiles.”
Speaking during the opening monologue of his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host notes that people who believe that an alleged “shadowy cabal of pedophiles” is operating in “the highest levels of politics and finance” are often demonized for demanding justice.
He said that allegations of powerful people engaging in pedophilia and using “their power to hide the crimes they commit against children” are often brushed off as “so-called conspiracy theories.”
However, Carlson argues that people who call for investigations into child abuse are now being threatened with criminal charges themselves while instances of real child abuse are being ignored, or even celebrated.
Carlson acknowledges that people think the idea is just “too dark and strange to be true” before he gives some known examples that support the claims.
“Jeffrey Epstein, for example,” Carlson says.
“Epstein continued to dine with business moguls and heads of state long after he was arrested for having sex with minors.
“How did he do that? Why didn’t nobody say anything? Why did people keep eating with him?
“Well, at the very least, we can conclude, based on the evidence that there is a tolerance for pedophilia among some, among the most powerful in our society, a tolerance that you would not find in, say, your average middle-class American family.
“Some of the rich really are different that way,” he explains.
“That’s clearly true and in case you need more evidence of that, consider Balenciaga.
“Balenciaga is what they call a luxury brand,” Carlson notes.
“Balenciaga is a company that sells $1,100 dollars sneakers and cotton sweatshirts for $1,500 bucks to people who’ve literally run out of things to buy.
“You’re probably not doing your back-to-school shopping at Balenciaga, but some people apparently are.
“This week, Balenciaga rolled out a new ad campaign on Instagram and the selling point of the ads was sex with children,” he said.
“One photograph showed a very young girl lying face down on a couch with candles, empty wine glasses, and a dog collar on a coffee table in front of her.
“Another picture showed the same girl, a toddler, holding a teddy bear dressed in sexual bondage gear, including a leather harness, and then, in case you missed the point, we’re for pedophilia Balenciaga, another picture made it explicit.
“That picture showed pages from a Supreme Court opinion that struck down a law designed to fight child pornography,” he continues.
“Whoever staged the photo shoot made certain to include a portion of that opinion that use the word ‘sex’ or ‘sexual’ four times and of course, that was not an accident.
“Balenciaga wanted you to notice” Carlson opined.
“This seemed like a big story to us as we told you last night. Here you have a major international retail brand promoting kiddie porn and sex with children and not promoting it subtly, but right out in the open.
“No healthy society can tolerate that, and in fact, none ever have tolerated it.
“There’s never been a time in American history where pedophilia was considered anything other than the worst thing, the most horrifying crime imaginable.
“Pedophiles famously get killed in prison because even murderers consider them immoral,” Carlson stated.
“That’s how out of bounds it is and has always been to sexualize children.
“It’s totally unacceptable, but apparently it’s not unacceptable anymore.
“Academics have redefined child molesters as ‘minor-attracted persons’ and the point, of course, is to send the message that actually it’s not that big a deal.
“It’s just a different kind of love.
“So, maybe not surprisingly given that trend, apart from a few isolated exceptions in the American media, almost all outlets completely ignored Balenciaga’s kiddie porn ad campaign.
“There was not a single story about it in the New York Times this morning, or Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post or on CNN or NBC,” Carlson revealed.
“There was no talk of an investigation or a boycott.
“The usual outraged merchants stayed completely silent because they weren’t outraged.
“Balenciaga ultimately issued a statement saying it was going to punish the photographer who did the shoot like it was the photographer’s fault and they didn’t know about it and after that, the story effectively died and that means that the CEO of Balenciaga, a man called Cédric Charbit, it will not become a social pariah for what his company has just done.
“He will continue, just as Jeffrey Epstein continued, to enjoy his busy social life, totally penalized with his many fabulous celebrity friends.”
“The media have no interest in covering the sexualization of children,” Carlson added.
“Their interest and it’s a very intense interest tellingly, so is in destroying anyone who complains about the sexualization of children or who even notices it.
“Noticing it, they tell us, is an attack on the LGBT community.
“The assumption here, their assumption apparently is that gay people are in favor of molesting kids and of course, in favor of performing genital mutilation on minors, but that’s absurd.
“No normal person is for this, gay or not.
“It’s not anti-gay to oppose kiddie porn or to feel horror at the fact that doctors are cutting the breasts off of healthy teenage girls.
“These are crimes and most gay people think they’re crimes.
“Why wouldn’t they think that?
“Protecting children from adults who want to sexually exploit them is a basic human instinct and it’s a noble instinct and yet NBC News is doing its best to redefine that instinct as a crime.
“Yesterday, NBC brought on its law enforcement expert, by the way, a former assistant director of the FBI, to warn viewers that anyone who complains about the sexualization of children will be punished by the legal system, will be sued into bankruptcy and destroyed.”
“It is a dangerous cult that is causing irreparable harm to children—not just few, but a lot,” Carlson later concluded.
