Yesterday’s post, featuring Belinda’s fascinatingly awful speech to the Democrats & Veterans Party conference, reminded us of a couple of other videos in which the self-styled “children’s rights campaigner” has made some very interesting observations about those who sexually abuse children.
As you’ll recall, Belinda stated in yesterday’s video that she had at least three friends who were convicted paedophiles, but that she believed in their protestations of innocence, and indeed had allowed one to stay in her home, despite the protestations of her family (and us, but who’s counting?).
But Belinda’s warm feelings towards sexual abusers of children don’t end there. She has long advocated amnesty for paedophiles, as demonstrated in at least two videos that we are aware of.
In the above video, published in March 2013, Belinda and her sidekick “Small Paul” Barbara are found at Speaker’s Corner. She has apparently forgotten her trusty megaphone, and is shouting to her approving audience of one, plus a few puzzled passers-by:
I would not take bloody revenge on anybody!
I would put these people in the zoo! How about that? In a zoo!
Where we the public could come and question them, and ask them, “What drove you to do these bestial things to little people, children, a fraction of your size, how could you? Could you explain?”
They need to be put on public display so that we can question them! And as soon as they start weeping tears for what they did, they can come out of the zoo! And they can be rehabilitated, and hopefully do wonderful things for the society ever after.
Everybody can be redeemed, everybody can be brought back from their evil ways. It takes time but we need to build a culture of allowing first of all the issue to be looked at at all, and then…
The video cuts away to Paul getting into a heated altercation with a bystander who is unimpressed with Belinda’s holding forth. We won’t spoil the ending for you, but let’s just say that Belinda and Paul appear quite disgruntled by the experience.
In the next video, Belinda and Bill Maloney, another self-proclaimed fighter against child sexual abuse, both advocate amnesty for paedophiles:
Maloney leads off with this bizarre rant:
One thing that did come out of my recuperation and myself and other people helping to get me well again…is, I was sitting in an armchair one day, and I was sitting there staring at the floor for two or three hours. But within that, an idea came to me. A thought came to me.
And it was, “Amnesty. Amnesty. Amnesty for paedophiles. Amnesty for paedophiles”.
And I thought, “What the fuck’s this, amnesty for paedophiles?”
And it kept hitting me, “Amnesty for paedophiles, amnesty for paedophiles”.
And then it said, “…that expose the paedophilic rings they’re working for. That expose the paedophilic rings they’re working for. It will cause mayhem. It will cause mayhem. It will cause mayhem”.
Then, you put it all together: “Amnesty for paedophiles that expose the paedophilic rings that they have been working with. It will cause havoc, because they will all be saying, ‘Who’s the first one to come out, and gonna grass us all up so that they can get amnesty?”
So. Amnesty for paedophiles who expose the rings that they’re working for. Let’s do that.
And then Belinda, in an interview which took place in March 2015, repeats her previous idea, sans the zoo motif:
I would like to see a kind of amnesty for everybody who’s been up to these practices, and to be rehabilitated, restored into the mainstream of the human community.
Odd ideas for people who claim to have the best interests of children at heart: allow paedophiles to roam about unfettered, so long as they have either “wept tears for what they did”, or grassed up other paedophiles.
And yet, we learned a few months ago that this view is not as uncommon as one might expect: at Sacha Stone’s “International Tribunal for Natural Justice”, we discovered that “natural justice” actually meant “free the paedophiles”:
So in the wild and wacky world of Belinda McKenzie, Bill Maloney, Sacha Stone, and others, “justice for sexually abused children” will consist of sitting the convicted sexual abuser down for a pleasant chat, explaining that what they did was out of bounds, getting them to apologise, and sending them on their merry way.
Does Belinda think that when paedophiles are caught they ‘fess up’ and take responsibility for their actions? Is she so naive that she thinks her (convicted) friends would admit to her that they have a sexual interest in children and have committed offences against them? I have news for Belinda. Paedophiles lie about their behaviour. They lie in person and they lie in Court. Doesn’t she realise this?
Apparently she does not. And nor do Maloney and Stone.
One almost has the impression that they don’t really care much about children, but really don’t want to see their own friends behind bars.
Naaaaaah. That’s just crazy talk. Right?
