KARA MCKINNEY (HOST): Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri made a deep dive into the judicial record of Team Biden's Supreme Court nominee. Yesterday, he tweeted his findings. Quote, “I've been researching the record of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, reading her opinions, articles, interviews and speeches. I've noticed an alarming pattern when it comes to Judge Jackson's treatment of sex offenders, especially those preying on children,” end quote. In 17 follow-up tweets, Hawley documented a pattern of light sentencing for child porn offenders, often against federal sentencing guidelines. For instance, Hawley pointed out, in the case of United States v. Stewart, the criminal possessed thousands of images of child porn and sought to travel across state lines to abuse a 9-year-old girl. The guidelines called for a sentence of eight to 10 years. Judge Jackson sentenced the criminal to less than five years. Joining us now to discuss is the deputy managing editor of RedState and host of RedState LIVE!, Brandon Morse. Thanks for being here tonight, Brandon.
BRANDON MORSE (DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR, REDSTATE): Hey, thanks for having me.
MCKINNEY: Great. So, do you think that this is another story that will be totally ignored by the corporate media?
MORSE: Oh, absolutely. They have been doing their absolute best to try to eliminate any substantial talk about the pedophilia problem that is currently in the left and especially the radical left. They have been trying to make this almost a normal thing for some time. And if they come down hard on it, then it’ll reinforce the idea to society that pedophilia is a bad thing. And it is a very bad thing. It should be come down on hard. But they're not.
And I'm afraid that the reason that they're not doing this is because there's probably more pedophiles, or at least people who are friendly to pedophiles out there, than we might think in positions of power, especially on the left. You know, you had a ton of people suddenly go into hiding or shut up, you know, once Jeffrey Epstein was back in the spotlight for this. And it's scary to think that you have a lot of these leftists, these Democrats, politicians, activists, media figures who have been caught, or who have been trying to ease the pain of any of these pedophiles who are to be -- who should be suffering for their crimes. You see this a lot, lately.
And it's scary to think that this new judge that's come up here is one of these people who is going to be very kind to them. It’s scary to think. And you have to wonder why Joe Biden or any of the Democrats, whoever his handlers are, are wanting to put her in charge. She’s clearly got a very scary history when it comes to pedophilia, or at least handling people who are pedophiles. It's one more drop in the bucket when it comes to dealing with the left and their problem with pedophilia.
