It's Not Political It's Sex Trafficking

Stop Making This Political


Last night my heart broke as I listened to a 17 year old survivor of sex trafficking talk about her experience on our Get Real With Rick Dancer Podcast.


Her mother’s boyfriend sold her to someone for sex. She says she was sold hundreds of times in her still short life.


When I wrote online that I would be talking with her and discussing the new movie on sex trafficking “Sound of Freedom”, a few folks came on my page and said “Oh, you must be a conservative if you are covering this issue and the movie.”


My blood started to boil. It’s not the first time I’ve had pushback from folks on the left over the issue of trafficking and the movie.

One woman even told me the stats I was given from the movie producers were inflated.

Who gives a damn, one person treated this way is too many and she wants to argue numbers and debate how bad it really is? Shame on her.


This young woman’s life is nearly ruined and it will take her years of therapy to ever feel human again and we have people making this political?


We are truly a screwed up country. What is wrong with us? Did the reaction to COVID and some people’s hate for Trump destroy any empathy they had in their body?

SEX TRAFFICKING IS NOT A POLITICAL ISSUE IT”S A HUMAN ISSUE.


For those who choose to make this political, shame on you. For the rest of you I suggest you watch the interview and realize this is happening, not just in other countries but right there in Oregon, in Lane County, in your hometown.


Stop making this political people’s lives are at stake.

It is certainly a human issue. Consider that when we support, by our vote, those responsible for the policies that make these crimes possible, we then become complicit. This is what drives the way I vote, not the personality of a candidate.

This is a very real issue on one ALL should be angered by, however, there are those who want to make everything a political issue. Rick was well within his rights and quite accurate in his assessment regarding how and why people challenge issues. There are those on the left who view anything like this as a political issue. The movie has been given bad reviews and opinions by many so-called news people on various networks, it was poo pooed by all studios only to become a major success thanks to the public. As for his reference to Trump, those who express their hated for Trump are usually the same people who are against anything with a perceived conservative sl…

I’m very much anti-Trump and blame him for many things but not fires and hurricanes.

I am disappointed that anyone would downplay this important issue. I agree when you write “sex trafficking is …a human issue.”

then, you your make it a partisan political issue by writing, “did the reaction to Covid and some people’s hate for Trump destroy any empathy they had in their body.?” If you want to leave politics out of this, then do so.

As a former CASA volunteer and retired educator, I am well aware of this horrifying situation and worked regularly with law enforcement.
