Apparently Jeffrey Epstein spent all his time with Donald Trump — 3 Comments

  1. To be fair, I don’t think anyone is saying Epstein was a paedophile, even in the current commonly used way. Technically a paedophile is sexually attracted to prepubescent children, an ephebophile is sexually attracted to adolescents who have gone through puberty – nowadays paedophile tends to be used to cover anyone who has sex with a person under the legal age of maturity.

    As far as I read the accusations the women were all of legal maturity, its just that the degree of consent is contested. So potential rapist, yes, potential sexual assaulter, yes, weird sexual fetishist almost certainly, but actual paedo, no.

    Though you’re absolutely right about the Trump connection – its noticeable that while there have been a few ‘Look Trump knew Epstein and was at one of his parties!’ pieces in the media, by and large Epstein has been memory holed now. And thats entirely down to his Democrat connections – if Epstein were a purely Republican type and no or only very minor Dems were involved, then this would be front page news every day in the US, the whole thing would never stop until the next US election. But its Clinton and the Democrats in the dock so they’ve have to forgo the chance to go to town on Trump in order to save their own.

  2. Yes, they’ve memory-holed Epstein for years because of all the Democrat connections. They’ve been forced to acknowledge his existence recently with his arrest and death, but they’ve tried to make that as Republican as they can. Now he’s dead the memory hole will gradually start to swallow him up, regardless of any suspicions over his death.

    Legal maturity — weren’t some of the women technically under-age according to the relevant state laws? But you’re right that he’s not really a paedo.

    • “weren’t some of the women technically under-age according to the relevant state laws”

      Possible, but they generally seemed to be at least legally adults, so any that weren’t would seem to have been by accident rather than design. It doesn’t seem he was out to specifically get underage girls.

      Incidentally, the media memory hole an interesting litmus test – when one of these scandals breaks out, or one of the mass shootings as well, if one looks at how the media deal with it over say 6 months to a year later, one can get a reasonable idea of whether the facts ‘fit the narrative’ for the Left or not – those that do we’ll continue to hear about, those that don’t will disappear without trace. The Las Vegas shooting fits the latter bill – despite it being the largest mass shooting in US history, and not fitting the bill of any of the others, and having multiple strange issues regarding it, there’s not a peep about it in the media any more.
