It’s weird how the national media hasn’t taken much interest in Seattle’s child molesting mayor. Sure, Ted Cruz may have liked a porn video on Twitter, but he’s a Republican. A gay democrat child molester is definitely less interesting. Not that you will see this on the NBC Nightly News. but Seattle’s Mayor Ed Murray has finally resigned after allegations that he molested several young boys. The straw that broke the pedophile’s back was that his own cousin has accused him of molestation. Again, nothing really interesting about a gay democrat pedophile involved in incest.
The Seattle Times reports:
For five months, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray rejected calls for his resignation amid allegations he sexually abused teens decades before entering politics.
But Murray couldn’t withstand a devastating new allegation from within his own family.
He announced his resignation Tuesday, hours after news emerged that a younger cousin was publicly accusing Murray of molesting him in New York in the 1970s.
Murray wouldn’t actually appear in public, but he did issue a statement:
“While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public’s business,” said Murray.
If he was 100% innocent, he would fight this stuff, not resign.
I don’t know why, but I find the juxtaposition of these next two paragraphs to be hilarious:
He added he was proud of his accomplishments in a long political career, including landmark gay civil rights laws and enactment of a $15 minimum wage.
It was a stunning end to a months-long drama that has seen five men step forward to accuse Murray of sexually abusing them years ago, when they were teenagers.
So he battled for a $15 minimum wage and sexually abused teenagers? In other words, he’s been fighting for fifteen for many years. Sorry, but that was hanging there waiting for me.
Technically, he was fighting for thirteen. Here’s the sick account of Murray raping his male cousin:
Joseph Dyer, 54, a dialysis technician and Air Force veteran, says he was 13 when Murray forced him into sex for about a year while the two shared a bedroom in Dyer’s mother’s home in the Long Island town of Medford, New York.
“There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn’t want him touching me,” said Dyer.
“And that’s when he would molest me. And my mother would be right there in the house, she’d be in the living room … watching TV, at that time it was probably “M*A*S*H.” And my sisters would be in their rooms, sleeping. And I would be in my room, and he would be in there, molesting me,” he continued.
According to Dyer, the molestation stopped only after a boy in a Catholic group home where Murray worked accused Murray of abuse. His uncle, Dyer said, negotiated to get group-home officials not to pursue charges as long as Murray left. After that, Murray left town, and Dyer said he never saw or spoke to his cousin again.
This is on top of a bunch of other teenagers that Murray allegedly sexually assaulted, sometimes rewarding silence with drugs. Somehow, raping his cousin seems worse.
Try to imagine this headline: Straight Republican Mayor Molests Underage Girls Including His Cousin. That would be the biggest story of the year, with a ton of liberal outrage to go with it. The party of this fictitious Republican would be used by liberals to accuse all conservatives of promoting rape culture and proof of the GOP’s war on women.
And yet “Gay Democrat Mayor Molests Underage Boys Including his Cousin” elicits no response from the liberal media and no outrage from liberals. There are no accusations that democrats promote gay rape culture and no finger pointing at the liberal war on children.
This is yet another cog in the fake news machine. If a Republican does something it’s freak-out time, but if a democrat does something way worse, the story gets buried.
