A thriving pedophile network found a home in Berlin's Green Party. Pedophiles melted easily into the gay wing of the far left party from its formation until the mid-1990s. The information was revealed last November by the party, itself, after an investigation, and it apologized. The issue was raised in the 2013 elections when the Greens were accused of supporting pedophiles.
See Germany's Green Party Turns Red with Embarrassment Over Pedophilia Links for a report from last November on the network of perverts.
Today, a new report was issued in which it was estimated that as many as 1000 children could have been sexually abused by members of the Green Party between approximately 1980 and 1995. Party leaders suggested that there was a 'misunderstood tolerance' of paedophiles in those days.
They have set up a compensation fund and are asking survivors to come forward.
Of course there were movements then by pedophiles to try to get pedophilia legalized. The left leaning Greens probably assumed that there was little difference between homosexuality and pedophilia, both were just healthy expressions of sexuality that the world hadn't yet grown to accept.
In fact, the difference isn't all that great, but while the world 'grew' to accept homosexuality, it began to become obvious that pedophilia was very destructive on its victims. If we were willing to look, I suspect we would find some of the same characteristics displayed in gays and lesbians. Although nowadays we don't recognize those characteristics as being unhealthy.
For my part, the teaching of young children that they can be gay, or that they can change their sex if they are unhappy with the one they were born with, is every bit as much child sex abuse as pedophilia. One day that will be obvious, but it won't be anytime soon.
