This is what real journalism looks like.

Yesterday, a Federal judge rendered a decision https://t.co/z7ImYJgWHi that no one has likely read. You should. The lawsuit is against MindGeek, the largest internet porn company in the world, and @Visa. Both are culpable. Visa’s conduct here is inexcusable,

VISA and Mastercard tried to hide that they’d quietly reauthorized MindGeek.

You know what’s sicker than abusing an underage girl? 

It’s shooting a video of yourself raping an underage girl and then posting it on a website and charging people to watch it.  

Which is what pedos have been doing and making big bank off it. 

And Visa and Mastercard were helping these porn sites and these pedos make that money. 

Until journalists called attention to this. Then as a PR move, Visa and MC announced they were no longer doing business with MindGeek.  

But it didn’t last.  Both quietly began working with MindGeek again.  

So someone SUED THEIR ASSES.

Note what happened here:  Visa and MC temporarily suspended MindGeek’s access to their service.  

MindGeek deleted over 10 MILLION ILLEGAL VIDEOS as it attempted to get it’s services restored. 

Visa and MC restored their service and then…within hours MindGeek began reuploading all of it’s illegal content.  

I guess they thought the coast was clear.

The judge does a great job of laying out the culpability of VISA and MC here.  

They were literally doing business with an entity that they had been alerted about that was monetizing child porn.  

They don’t have any real excuse for that.

Here is the lawsuit and the judge’s decision: 

It’s not like the poster of the video tried to hide the fact the person in the video was an underage minor.  Look at the title this thing had on the website.

Holy crap.  

“Just sent us photographic proof you’re the same underage minor that appears in this video and we’ll take it down off our website.” 

I hope these bastards have all their assets seized.

“Uh sure we’ll take down that video we’ve allowed to be uploaded to our website, that video showing a naked child. 

Just as soon as you prove to us with pictures you are the child in that video.  Unless you’re willing to do that, go away and stop bothering us.”

Translation: 

“We’re posting child porn and making $ off of it, but before we take that illegal video down off our website and sacrifice that revenue, jump through this hoop for us, why don’t you honey?”  

FUCK THESE PEOPLE.

Claiming they needed photographic proof the person complaining to them about the CHILD PORN VIDEO on their website was the child in the video before they would remove it, the judge had little patience with it. 

And he was a lot nicer than I would have been.

Hey, is this a good time remind everybody that possession of child porn all by itself is a FELONY CRIME?  

You don’t even need to post it anywhere or sell it.  JUST HAVING IT IS A FEDERAL CRIME.  

jUST FOR THIS ALONE every single one of the owners of MindGeek should be in prison already.

How in the world was this shit being allowed in a civilized country?  

MindGeek had it’s Pornhub staff deliberately tagging child porn videos so people looking for child porn would more easily find it.  

Gee, awful helpful of them.

What strings were pulled behind the scenes to allow this massive tranche of child porn to basically sit out there in the open on the internet for the past decade or more? How much money changed hands so this system would be allowed?  

Sexual exploitation of children is Satanic activity.  The devil and his angels lust to corrupt and destroy the innocent.  

A literal child porn industry was allowed to be set up and operate for HOW MANY YEARS?! 

When the Red Wave hits and the new Congress gets sworn in in January 2023 we need to pass laws that ensure this kind of crap NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.  

This is a CIVIL LAWSUIT.  

It should be filed against defendants who are already in prison for all the years they displayed a massive tranche of child porn on the internet and monetized it.  

Why aren’t all of these ghouls in jail yet?

To no one’s shock, people who promote and make money off of the production and display of child porn do not like being exposed.  

Here’s the lengths to which MindGeek’s VP Corey Urman went to try to silence those sounding the alarm over MindGeek’s promotion of an profiting off of child porn.

VISA tries to play dumb, but the evidence trail is extensive that they knew MindGeek was monetizing criminal behavior and they were helping MindGeek make it’s $ from driving internet traffic to child porn videos.

Even when PayPal cut MindGeek off, Visa continued it’s relationship despite repeated warnings and provided evidence that the site was monetizing child porn.  

Visa stupidly tried to claim a neutral stance towards the enablement of child porn profiteering.  

That’s likely going to cost them because I don’t see a real defense here to this civil lawsuit.

It wasn’t until a huge story appeared on the front page of the NYT’s that a fire was lit under Visa’s ass to take what turned out to be only a temporary action to suspend MindGeek’s service while it ‘investigated’. 

As we already know, after waiting awhile and the coast was clear, VISA reinstated MIndGeek and the service began reuploading it’s millions of child porn videos.
