The Jury Talks Back


Frum Fires Knepper, Blames NewsRealBlog For Making Him

Filed under: Uncategorized — Scott Jacobs @ 2:59 pm

David Frum has finally fired hebephile Alex Knepper.

In doing so, David Frum continues to be an apologist for the worthless little pile of shit pervert, and blames NewsReal Blog for forcing him to do the right thing…

When you have to be forced to do what is right, and then bitch about it later, you’re a fucking worthless pile of shit, and probably just need to go away and die.

David Swindle has a rebuttal for the 14 blatant lies Frum had in his remarks. You should read it.

Also, I would like to say a few words regarding Alex and his “Libertarianism”.  Alex and those like him are why libertarianism has a bad name.  He uses the excuse of personal liberty to validate his perversions, much like those who claim to hold libertarian ideals because they don’t like paying taxes and want heroin to be legal.

The idea of “Personal Liberty” includes the notion – often ignored by many – that your actions do not infringe on the liberties of others.  That is to say, you can go ahead and do hits of ecstasy, but you aren’t allowed to drop it in the drink of the inattentive girl at a frat party so that you can get her in the mood.  While many might debate at what age someone is capable of giving real and informed consent regarding sexual acts, there are certain ages that are agreed to be “too young” and Alex likes them within that “too young” range.  There is also the ignored fact that, regardless of what a Libertarian might think, the laws on the books are the laws on the books – just because you think it should be perfectly legal to snort some blow off the ass of a hooker, it is still illegal to do so (for so many different reasons).

Alex Knepper is no sort of libertarian (big OR small “L”).  He’s just a garden-variety pervert, and should be treated as such.

And so, having done my good deed for the decade, I again depart this blog.  This was, as I had said, not a home-coming.  This was a short stop to make sure a pervert got all the exposure possible, along with his apologist employer.  That goal having been accomplished, I will no longer remain.

    Some of us would prefer that you hung around.

    NewsRealBlog’s behavior in this case was vicious, invasive and outrageous. I wonder what would remain of the reputations of NewsRealBlog’s editors if their expectations of privacy were ripped away, if their private emails were published, their sexual fantasies and peculiarities exposed to public view.

    NewsRealBlog’s editors have fused high school cyber-bullying and New Left character assassination. They have relentlessly harried and pursued somebody himself only months out of his own adolescence. They bombarded him with accusations long before they did the snooping that provided their squalid evidence. They have sought to destroy a career in the midst of the worst job market for young journalists since the 1930s, all to settle a private score.

    At what point does someone’s bad points simply outweigh any good he might have done? Mr Knepper was apparently a promising writer, but he also appears to be a dangerous sexual predator.

    Mr Frum’s article reminds me of the apologists for Roman Polanski, a talented film director who just happened to be a child rapist; some people somehow belittled the fact that he raped a 13-year-old girl, because he was one of the glitterati. Mr Frum seems to be similarly enamored of Mr Knepper.

  3. Come back, Scott.

  4. You know precisely what that would require.

  5. “David Frum continues to be an apologist for the worthless little pile of sh** pervert”
    “When you have to be forced to do what is right, and then bitch about it later, you’re a f***ing worthless pile of sh**, and probably just need to go away and die.”
    Alex Knepper is a pedophile and an all-round despicable human being. David Frum is a fake conservative willing not only to be used by the left to advance his career by besmirching real conservatives but also is a disingenuous mudslinger willing to protect a pedophile while continuing to smear conservatives.

    But neither deserves to die and your immature name-calling does nothing to advance this topic. Your post stands on its own without the lame and childish second and third sentences. It sounds like they come from anger and you should have just counted to 20.

    Patterico succumbs to this too sometimes when he’s in a blog feud. It’s the one thing that turns me off from this otherwise excellent blog.

  6. I support the death penalty for pedophiles.

  7. “I support the death penalty for pedophiles.”

    As bad a crime as pedophilia is, death would not be justice. Also – SJ called for Frum to die, not Knepper.

    Once again, the name calling and death wishes serve no constructive purpose. Rise to a higher level.

    (and now this post is gone from the PP lineup……why is that?)

  8. My apologies – I just realized this wasn’t the main PP but the kiddie table.

    That explains a lot.

  9. Good job, Scott.

  10. Scott Jacobs, hope you return, but good job.

    And thanks, particularly, for the discussion on libertarians who are really just bs’ing for being bad people rather than pursuing a society of liberty for them and all individuals.

    That kind of thinking is why you’re missed.
