VIDEO CNN Films Child Trafficking Transaction and Does Nothing to Stop It


CNN sent a camera crew to film a family in Afghanistan selling their 9-year-old daughter to an old pedophile for $2000. The crew not only interviewed the family and knew that they were selling her to buy rice and flour, but they filmed the entire transaction–including the girl being dragged off while resisting and put in a car. The crew that works for a global network worth billions of dollars did not offer to buy the family food so they didn’t have to sell their daughter. They just watched a child being sold into some kind of sex slavery as a “wife.”

The cameras roll as the child applies makeup in preparation for her new “husband.” The father says he has “no choice” but to sell his daughter for food since the Taliban takeover dried up the humanitarian aid he was receiving. The cameras roll as an old man comes to collect his purchase and drags her away as she struggles. No one does anything. The child disappears into the Afghanistan desert as the voiceover says, “The child’s fate has been sealed.”

The full video is even worse. CNN finds other families who are selling their daughters as young as 4 years old; one 10-year-old says she will commit suicide rather than be forcefully wed to an old man. There are two glaring problems here.

  1. What kind of father would even consider selling his helpless daughter to a pedophile for any reason? He should sell himself first if the situation is that dire. He should take his family and run to another country as a refugee and fall on the mercy of that country. He should die before selling his child to a pedophile. Yet, for some reason, the Afghan men don’t seem all that conflicted about it. “I’m ashamed,” says one with dry eyes and no visible stress. Is it the culture of misogyny that is to blame for this unthinkable “solution”? How can a man trade his daughter for a bag of rice? I’d rather starve and so would my daughter.

  1. Why is CNN watching a kid being dragged away by a pedophile without doing something about it? Can they not scrape together a few thousand dollars to keep this from happening? If you save one child, at least you did something. The majority of the commenters agreed with me.

Intervention is not always the best thing to do, and it’s clear that our involvement in Afghanistan didn’t get us much more than a 20-year war and dead Americans. The second our troops were gone, the misogynistic horror show came roaring back at full speed. At some point, we have to recognize that no amount of foreign aid or Western intervention is going to stop the thousands of years of ingrained ways of life in Afghanistan that none of us can understand. Selling children is an unjust and terrible tradition. The fathers are the ones who bear the responsibility for stopping it. But for God’s sake, CNN, couldn’t you have set up a fund for the kids you found and saved a few? Would it have been that hard?

CNN Blasted as ‘Propaganda’ for Asserting ‘It’s Not Possible’ to Know Sex at Birth

A tiny baby, CNN Blasted as Propaganda for Claiming ‘It’s Not Possible’ to Know Sex at Birth

A CNN news story claiming “it’s not possible” to know a person’s gender or sex at birth was widely panned across social media this week, mainly because it was stated as a non-debatable fact.

The story focused on two executive orders by South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem prohibiting males from competing in female sports. The article was highly critical of her position.

“It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth,” the CNN story said.

It didn’t take long for Christians and conservatives to notice the sentence.

“If you act like a propaganda outlet, people are going to treat you like a propaganda outlet. This is blatant @CNN,” tweeted Denny Burk, director of the Center for Gospel and Culture at Boyce College in Louisville, Ky.

“This is CNN. Unbelievable,” tweeted conservative radio host Erick Erickson.

“We live in a literal clown world where the elites pretend not to know what it means to be a man or a woman. The only way to maintain your sanity is to reject this absolute nonsense everywhere you see it,” tweeted author Allie Beth Stuckey.

“Actually, there is a scientific consensus for ‘assigning sex at birth.’ It’s called observation, coupled with a basic understanding of mammalian and human biology,” tweeted Hot Air senior editor Ed Morrissey.

“Hey @CNN, you wrote, ‘It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.’ Call me, and I’ll explain the criteria to you in 15 seconds,” tweeted David Prince, pastor of Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, Ky.

One person tweeted, sarcastically, “Wonder if CNN would help me out and announce it’s ‘Not Possible To Know A Person’s Income On Tax Day.’”

The website eventually tweaked the sentence, although the change did little to appease Christians and other conservatives’ concerns. The new sentence read: “It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and for some people, the sex listed on their original birth certificate is a misleading way of describing the body they have.”
