This article written for the Feast of the Holy Innocents, those little children massacred by Herod after the birth of Christ, looks at the “Herods” destroying the innocents of our day.
History repeatedly is rocked by the Herods among us, and innocent children are always their victims. We are shaken by stories of child sacrifice, child labor, Mengele’s experiments on twins, and the child sex trade from Kenya to Thailand. Modern-day massacres of innocents include the Nazi Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda, and the ISIS slaughter of Christian children in Syria. Though Americans know surprisingly little about such things these days, it seems less because of active suppression than because of passive disinterest.
Yet the liberal media does suppress facts about illegal immigration and child trafficking, the MS-13 sex trade, and the 14,000 unaccompanied minors in protective custody at the border. They prefer to dramatize the story of children caught in a tear gas response to border violence, or mask the fact that dehydration and illness not properly attended by their guardians, not border control, caused the tragic deaths of two migrant children. The Left thinks they are purveyors of mercy and social justice, and any story portraying child victims serves their “hot commodity,” which is, of course, political narrative. They want to be known as the party of inclusivity and tolerance. Stories of child abuse that serve this purpose are spread far and wide. Those that don’t? Not so much.
Contemporary massacres of innocent children to the gods of the social justice warriors are completely ignored or, worse, celebrated. And I’m not only talking about the annual 56 million abortions worldwide. I’m talking about the many ways SJWs today use children to advance their anti-Judeo-Christian, anti-traditional family agenda; an agenda that glorifies and normalizes adult sexual deviance and experimentation.
