Hide The Children--Dutch Court Allows Pedophile Party
Good grief--at least the judge's decision was the correct one, technically:
A Dutch court has turned down a request to ban a political party with a paedophile agenda.Without a doubt the Dutch will reject such a vile agenda at the ballot box, not through a judicial ban.
Judge HFM Hofhuis ruled that the Brotherly Love, Freedom and Diversity Party (PNVD) had the same right to exist as any other political party.
The PNVD was formed by three paedophiles in May, prompting outrage in Dutch society.
It seeks to lower the age of sexual consent from 16 to 12 and legalise child pornography and sex with animals.
"Freedom of expression...including the freedom to set up a political party can be seen as the basis for a democratic society," Judge Hofhuis said in the ruling, according to the Associated Press news agency.
"It is the right of the voter to judge the appeal of political parties," he said.
Captain Ed agrees.
