WND's Attack on Removed School Filters Sets Off Reisman
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Sept. 3 WorldNetDaily article by Bob Unruh is mostly a rewritten press release, this time from the UK's Christian Institute, about a school system in Scotland that allegedly lifted its Internet filtering so that students could access government health websites regarding sexual health. Unruh makes no apparent attempt to verify anything the Christian Institute stated, nor did he apparently contact the school system for a response. Unruh also whitewashed the Christian Institute by repeating its own description of itself as promoting "the furtherance and promotion of the Christian religion in the United Kingdom" as well as "the advancement of education." The Wikipedia page for the group, meanwhile, describes it a a "fundamentalist Christian" group that is anti-gay.

If you think Unruh's article was full of distortions, wait 'til you see what Judith Reisman did when she got her hands on it.

In a Sept. 4 WND column, Reisman asserts that Unruh's article was about "Scotland's opening up internet pornography to school children at lunch break thanks to the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, currently un-ratified by the repressed USA." In fact, neither Unruh nor the Christian Institute offer evidence that the school's Internet filters were modified to permit access to any "sexually explicit" site other than the government health sites.

Reisman then goes on a tirade about the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, offering up her own -- shall we say -- creative interpretations:

"Article 1 (Definition of the child): The Convention defines a 'child' as a person below the age of 18, unless the laws of a particular country set the legal age for adulthood younger …" This deliberately allows any age child to be redefined as adult.

Translation: Countries with legal prostitution or pornography and younger "age of adulthood," can sell legal child prostitution/pornography. "Rights" authors know adulthood may become any age, depending on the age of the partner(s). Spain's age of consent is now 13, pornography legal and prostitution effectively legal.

Article 17 says: "(Access to information; mass media): Children have the right to get information that is important to their health and well-being …"

Much international pornographic and fraudulent Planned Parenthood material masqueraded as sex education and AIDS prevention are said to be good for children's "health and well being." Similarly, "children's books" lie and sexually violate the child reader.

Article 13 is the pornography access act: "The child shall have the right to freedom of expression … [to] receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice."

[...]

Article 15 gives children of any age "freedom of association and to freedom of peaceful assembly. No restrictions may be placed on the exercise of these rights" if they are legal and don't violate public safety, etc. It is illegal for parents to stop children from bad actions, etc. Billions can be made via these child "protective" articles.

Article 16: allows the lockup for parents who interfere with a pimp for children are protected against "arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy … honour and reputation."

Article 24 provides "health care" family planning education and services, "abolishing traditional practices prejudicial to the health of children."

Translation: child contraception, venereal vaccination and abortion as child "protections" in international care documents[.]

Reisman added: "So a Scottish pedophile educator organizes access to 'all' media for any age, one to 18. Free 'expression … regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media,' it's a child's choice."

That's right -- Reisman called some Scottish school official (she has no idea who, since Unruh's article did not name any officials) a "pedophile" for allowing students access to sexual health websites.

Reisman's fanciful screeds -- and she has a history of them -- make one wonder about the factual veracity of her WND-published book.
