One for Maggie McNeill here

Dozens of alleged sex traffickers have been arrested in New York before this weekend’s Super Bowl, as congressmen warned that visiting American Football fans could order under-age prostitutes like takeaway pizzas.

Police and FBI agents detained more than 200 people accused of crimes related to trafficking women in advance of Sunday’s match, the biggest event in the US sporting calendar, according to the NYPD.

These people are lying through their teeth here, aren’t they?

The truth is to be found here.

  1. Indeed; here’s one of Maggie’s takedowns of the myth-

    These are, of course, just normal prostitution arrests, a bit of a blitz to create a statistic. The interesting thing about this is the power of the Establishment; they’re lying, we know they’re lying, they know we know they’re lying, but the “official narrative” rolls on and on, undiminished.

    Just one particular bit-

    “Maria Odom, a senior Homeland Security official, told the hearing that girls and young women are “lured with false promises of well-paying jobs or are manipulated by people they trust”.”

    This of course is the simple mythology of the white slave trade, which goes back a century to the previous time this fantasy was as influential.

  2. Also, the byeline on the article is Jon Swaine, a man whose entire job seems to consist of emailing bullshit across the Atlantic to the Telegraph offices. Anything his name is attached to is guaranteed to be bilge.

  3. “visiting American Football fans could order under-age prostitutes like takeaway pizzas” – with extra cheese?

  4. ” “lured with false promises of well-paying jobs or are manipulated by people they trust”.”
    Tut tut.
    Do they not have an insurance customer sales industry over the pond? Double glazing? Household insulation?

  5. “American Football fans could order under-age prostitutes”

    Yeah, well, you can order all sorts of things. If the industry in Yankland’s like anywhere else, the age she’ll be under’ll be more like 40.

  6. There is apparently an endless supply of under-age girls who, upon reaching the age of majority, simply vanish into the aether whence they came.

  7. So Much For Subtlety

    Ian B ““Maria Odom, a senior Homeland Security official, told the hearing that girls and young women are “lured with false promises of well-paying jobs or are manipulated by people they trust”.””

    Is it just me or does anyone else think it is odd that Homeland Security thinks that these non-existent under-age prostitutes pose a risk to national security?

    The devil really does make work for idle hands.

  8. SMFS-

    Joined up government.

    Nobody knew what that meant when Tony Blair first said it, but people assumed it just meant departments not pulling in opposite directions, which is reasonable enough. Turned out to mean that policies no longer are restricted to particular departments who are responsible for them, but every department is equally involved. So, once you hvae a policy like, “people shoud eat fewer chips and cakes”, every department from Transport to the DSS is set to work developing anti-chip and cake policies; transport food policy, welfare food policy and so on.

    So, you get a profusion of committees, new “officer” jobs, meetings, initiatives, etc as the government wide policies are rolled out. That’s what we see here, the American version. You have a policy party, and everyone’s invited. Everyone’s a “partner”.

    More than a century; that was the basic plot of Fanny Hill and that’s 250 years ago and more.
