Newsweek Editor Endorses Pedophilia, Says It "Leads to Great Art"


When a society creates a philosophy that says, “Whatever you perceive as being truth, is truth,” then you’ll most definitely end up with some sick ideas. For one Pakistani Newsweek editor, one such idea includes accepting pedophilia.

Fasih Ahmed, the editor-in-chief of Newsweek Pakistan, has apologized after posting a now-deleted tweet that says that child sex abuse can lead to “great art,” according to The Washington Times.

“The sexual abuse of children will always exist. You can never eliminate it. Sometimes it leads to great art. So there’s also that,” he wrote.

Wait, what? The sexual abuse of children can lead to great art? So, in the name of “great art” sexually abusing kids is OK? This guy is sick as all get out.

But then, Ahmed said pedophilia and sexual abuse will always exist. He also said that movements such as #MeToo do nothing to address the problem.

Ahmed then turned his attention to a case involving the death of Zainab Amin, 7-year-old Pakistani girl who was, according to The Washington Times, “raped, strangled and dumped in garbage near her home.”

The police have been widely criticized for how they handled her case, even though they have since arrested and charged a 24-year-old man with her murder.

Do you think this editor's comments went over the line?

But after all of the backlash and outcries, Ahmed said that he was just being sarcastic and pointing out the hypocrisy of Twitter activists.

Ahmed then admitted that maybe his phrasing wasn’t the best, causing his post to be “misread.” Gee, you think?

However, the apology was too little, too late. Newsweek began to distance themselves from Ahmed. They said the comments from Ahmed didn’t represent Newsweek and even said that they were reviewing their licensing agreement with Newsweek Pakistan.


Sorry Ahmed, implying pedophilia is sometimes justified is just sick. Joking about it is even sicker.

This is just another example of a pattern that we see all too often with liberals. They make a statement about how they really feel, and then when there’s backlash, they always backtrack and say they were joking.

Luckily, it doesn’t look like this guy is going to be around much longer for Newsweek — not that anybody really cares what comes from Newsweek, anyway.
