From the beginning, we’ve been saying that posting images of the two children, along with titillating details of their alleged abuse at the hands of a mysterious, invisible ‘satanic cult’ was irresponsible in the extreme.
Not only does each new post of the children’s images, whether in photo or video form, constitute yet another re-victimisation of these kids, but it raises the probability that the images and stories will find their way into the hands of producers of commercial child sex abuse…otherwise known as producers of child porn.
Now, it looks as though our concerns were not unwarranted.In this article in the Independent, reporter Victoria Richards notes:
…(W)ithin 10 days of being uploaded, some of the content from popular social media sharing sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Kik had been appropriated and viewed 1.7 million times (emphasis ours). Images were often catalogued in ‘themes’ such as “kids at beach”, “nice boys play in river” or “gymnasts”, alongside comments that explicitly sexualised the material.
“Many users clearly identify that they have obtained the content through trawling social media accounts,” he told the newspaper. “The images are almost always accompanied by highly explicit and very disturbing user comments. Often, users exchange email addresses with invitations to connect outside the site to trade content.”
In the article mentioned, a cyber-safety expert states, “It does not matter how innocent the photo is, if your child has got what a predator is looking for, they will take that photo.”
If innocent Facebook and Instagram images are fodder for sexualisation by those who profit from commercial paedophilia, that what about images of two beautiful children talking about having “plastic willies” shoved up their bottoms and so on?
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: making these images and interviews public is tantamount to offering paedophiles free rein in a nursery school.
But apparently that matters less to the Hoaxtead hawkers than the opportunity to ‘prove’ the existence of the pretend cult, and advance the agenda of those who’d have us believe the world is run by a secret cabal of Satanist Illuminati paedophiles.
