Billionaire-convicted-pedophile, assface, Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Sunday and will stand trial in Southern District of New York on new charges of sex trafficking of minor girls. He is considered a flight risk and so will not have bail. Insert sad trombone. That means his rich ass will have to sit in a jail cell until trial. Unlike his last conviction where he was allowed to leave the Palm Beach County Stockade and go to work SIX DAYS A WEEK.
Why am I so passionate about this and using expletives? Well, expletives are the best words to describe a fuck-face who exploits young women and passes them around to his wealthy friends like Hors d’Oeuvres for his own personal satisfaction. OH, and also? His supporters made our lives on this blog a living hell back when twitter didn’t have a way to report hate. Why? Because it was pointed out that Scientists, Lawrence Krause and Robert Trivers defended him. How dare we speak of atheist/skeptic royalty with anything but praise.
I said it on twitter, but I will say it here again.
Republicans who think liberals give a fuck if Bill Clinton goes down with Epstein forget that we are the ones with higher standards.
We know you will protect trump because you are the morally bankrupt crime party.
Everyone in the world sees you.

Republicans who think liberals give a fuck if Bill Clinton goes down with Epstein forget that we are the ones with higher standards. We know you will protect trump because you are the morally bankrupt crime party. Everyone in the world sees you. It’s how progressive groups consistently get better quality, smarter, more creative people in their ranks. We raise the bar. Republicans cheat and try to buy their way in. That causes them to attract less caring people with lower moral standards. Buying and cheating can cause you to win for a while but eventually your group will break down. Too many weak links.
In other words, we are willing to call out our, “heroes” and knock them off their pedestals when they make mistakes because we want our group, and all of humanity, to grow and get better. It’s why we use the word “progress” and the term “progressive.” We see harm and we highlight it so that we can all improve and do better. Cover-ups and defensive maneuvers meant to protect those who harm the weaker or those who commit crimes will only hurt more people by opening the door for more abuse. We have to stand up for the weak as a group and fight back when horrible things happen in our sight, like, I dunno, separating families and letting children die in cages, or in this case, abusing and raping children. If you cover it up, it doesn’t stop.
I wonder does the atheoskeptic world still idolize men who support pedophiles? Because if they do, they are no better than the corrupt Catholic Priests whom they consider themselves so above. In fact, they are worse because they run around telling everyone that they are smarter.
You can read the entire unsealed Epstein Indictment from SDNY here.
In related news it appears some of the young women who were victimized may have been plucked from Mar-A-Lago and Trump may be one of the “known” participants yet unnamed in the indictment. It’s still unclear but is known is that the Public Corruption Unit is prosecuting. We will have to wait to learn more about that, but it’s definitely bad news for Epstein, and people are speculating that since Epstein is looking at life in prison, prosecutors may be hoping he will flip on other public figures to lessen his time.
We also know that Trump’s labor secretary Mr Acosta, then a US attorney, helped craft the shady sweetheart white-man’s deal that allowed Epstein to only serve 13 months (for a lesser crime of soliciting sex from a minor) with six days a week off and we know that Epstein was friends with many wealthy elite men from around the globe- one reason why he is considered a flight risk. You can read more of those details at the NY Times.
Aren’t you tired of these rich men thinking they are above the law and can use people with less money? We have to follow the rules. It’s time they did too.
