Raze the Joe Paterno statue!

It is still on the record – with photographs that were published nationwide – that NAMBLA was, at one time, allowed to march in homosexual parades.
NAMBLA is the North American Man/Boy Love Association of pedophiles – adult child molesters who were invited to march hand-in-hand with their small boy victims by this nation’s militant homosexuals.
Very probably, the silence of the sodomy lobby about Penn State’s former assistant football coach, now convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky, is due in large measure to those NAMBLA paraders in the latter half of the last century.
Former FBI director and now private investigator Louis Freeh, after a full-scale public inquiry, called a news conference in which he condemned Penn State’s leadership – including Joe Paterno, the legendary head football coach who died of cancer in January.
“Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State. The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized. … The most saddening finding by the Special Investigative Counsel is the total and consistent disregard by the most senior leaders at Penn State for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s victims. Four of the most powerful people at Pennsylvania State University failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.”
A Washington Post editorial headlined, “The Terrible Truth,” noted the following:
“Among the most remarkable revelations in the report is the role that Mr. Paterno played in the scandal. Although emails leaked late in the investigation revealed that the coach was influential in the group’s decision not to report Mr. Sandusky after a 2001 incident, it appears that he also lied before a grand jury about whether he was aware of a 1998 incident involving Mr. Sandusky. As the investigation showed, Mr. Paterno was well aware of that incident and took no action, ‘even though Sandusky had been a key member of his coaching staff for almost 30 years and had an office just steps away from Mr. Paterno’s.’ …
“In the end, the root of the problem seems to be what the report calls Penn State’s ‘culture of reverence for the football program that is ingrained at all levels of the campus community.’ This culture is ultimately what silenced janitors from reporting what they witnessed and university officials from fulfilling their obvious moral obligation to the children Mr. Sandusky attacked. The Freeh investigation should serve as a red flag for any similar environment in which the powerful are unquestioned and protected, all for the sake of a game.”
The sub-headline on the New York Times’ lead editorial was as follows:
“The report on the cover-up of child rape ought to have legal consequences.”
I agree, although neither of these leading daily newspapers’ editorials even mentioned the one-time militant homosexual parade’s welcoming of NAMBLA.
What ought to be done by Penn State is the immediate removal of the Joe Paterno statue. But Karen B. Peetz, chairwoman of the Penn State board of trustees, told a news conference:
“The whole topic of Joe Paterno being honored or not being honored is a very sensitive topic. This is something that will continue to be discussed with the entire university community.”
Instead of immediately removing the heroic monument to this head coach who tolerated his associate’s child molesting, “this is something that will continue to be discussed.”
