For several years now, Salon has been trying to normalize pedophilia and to bring “pedo acceptance” into the mainstream. In one instance, they allowed a self-admitted pedophile by name “Todd Nickerson” to write op eds, asking for acceptance of pedophiles, who he argued, were different from child molesters.
The first article from Todd, titled “I’m a pedophile, but not a monster” tells the story of Todd, who claims to be sexually attracted to children but has never abused a child before. He wrote a follow-up article a week later titled “I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine”.
Apparently, his previous Pedo article didn’t go over very well with right wingers, and he received some hateful messages and death threats from people he identified as “far right extremists”.
Today, both of those articles are no longer hosted on Salon.com. In the past two days alone, Salon has published three articles accusing Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos of condoning sex with minors, and they might have realized that their actions might seem hypocritical, coming from a website that frequently defended pedophilia. Trying to read any of the two articles directly will give you an “error 404” page, however, an archive of them can be found HERE and HERE.
Salon seems to have scrubbed their website entirely of any content relating to Todd the Pedo. Trying to view his profile or any of the articles he has written turns up a blank page.
Someone was able to download an interview Salon gave to Todd before they removed it from their website.
