The U.S. Government granted political asylum to a Singaporean teenager calling himself “The Asian Pedophile”. Why???
Meet Amos Yee, a.k.a. “The Asian Pedophile”. (That’s his own nickname for himself, not mine. I did NOT come up with that moniker.)
He’s a wanna-be social media celebrity, a “refuge” in America from Singapore (one of the wealthiest democracies per capita on Earth), and most importantly, a pedophilia advocate using asylum status in the United States of America to publicly champion child rape. Yes, while Christians and other minorities are being murdered throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Asia for their faith or race or simply breathing and have no hope of U.S. asylum, this teenager from one of the most advanced countries on Earth was granted asylum here to protect his… free speech? And now he’s using his asylum status to encourage sexual relations between adults and children – including kids younger than 12 years old! Oh, and he also wants child pornography legalized too.
This guy thinks himself a social media celebrity and influencer of the world. His Facebook account is tagged with the descriptor:
“I make videos and blog posts that I hope can change the world for the better.”
So how does he envision making the world a better place? Let’s take a look.
As per Amos Yee, it is a total misconception that kids below the age of 12 cannot enjoy sexual activities.
“Imagine, if a 42-year-old man comes out and says that he indulged in consensual sexual activities at the age of 10 with a 30-year-old person. The 10-year-old kid was not traumatized afterward, and the relationship was perfectly fine and consensual, and both of them enjoyed to the fullest. Now, do you think that relationship which was perfectly harmless should be considered child rape”, asks Amos Yee.
He also made it clear that pedophiles are harmless, as they have a non-violent sexual attraction towards children and should not be discriminated.
So to summarize a couple of his points, Amos Yee (currently with asylum protection from the U.S. government) is publicly advocating that:
1.) Minors, including little kids, can consent to sex.
2.) Child rape is not actually child rape.
3.) Adults should have sex with kids “as young as they can”.
4.) If you can hug babies, you should be able to sexually molest them too, because there is no difference between hugs and molestation in his mind.
5.) Oh, and he also says that discriminating against pedophiles is totally the same as discriminating against black people.
He’s championing all of this filth, but he claims he isn’t a pedophile himself.
As Americans, we don’t have to agree on all immigration issues like the Wall or DACA in order to agree on some fundamental truths, like – we shouldn’t be giving asylum to a pedophilia advocate to come here and abuse the First Amendment to call for the rape of children!
In case you cannot watch the videos above, here he is in his own words on Facebook, which has allowed his account to continue for some reason:
What a sweetheart. Really embracing that #MeToo movement. This garbage keeps going, but you get the idea.
This is unambiguous. He’s a “sensation” with NAMBLA, for crying out loud. And our government is giving him sanctuary while millions of innocent people around the world are being persecuted and butchered for simply breathing.
(And why is Facebook allowing this content? Are they unaware of its existence?)
So how did he even get here? Here’s the backstory:
The US immigration court granted asylum last year to this guy on the grounds that he was being persecuted for his public comments back in Singapore. Yee, an atheist, had been arrested for a YouTube video there that vulgarly mocked Christianity and Islam and spent several weeks in prison. There was no threat to his life or health at any point though.
(Even if you don’t like the speech laws in Singapore, there’s actually a good reason for their law banning intentional insults of religions. Singapore is a small, yet very diverse city-state with a wide range of faiths and races. And they are surrounded by majority Islamic nations, who take Islam very seriously. In the 1960s, there were racial and religious riots that killed and injured a lot of people, and Singapore’s restrictions against purposeful insults of other faiths are aimed at avoiding more such rioting and death. But that’s not the point of this article.)
In late 2016, Yee caught a plane to the US and requested asylum after landing in Chicago, claiming Singapore was persecuting him for his political speech. In March of last year, Judge Samuel Cole, an immigration judge in Chicago, then granted him asylum, claiming:
“Yee has met his burden of showing that he suffered past persecution on account of his political opinion and has a well-founded fear of future persecution in Singapore,” Cole wrote.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security opposed his application for asylum, but the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals dismissed the appeal by DHS in September of last year and allowed him to stay.
Basically, this immigration judge and the Board of Appeals have decided that America now must be the arbiters and defenders of all those lacking free speech around the world. In that case, why haven’t Judge Cole and this Board of Appeals granted asylum to all women in Iran and Saudi Arabia? Why haven’t they called for all Christians and minority groups throughout the Middle East to be given refuge here? None of those people have free speech rights in their home countries either! When did Judge Cole become the policeman for free speech rights around the world? Why is Amos Yee being given special treatment?
A few months after being granted asylum, Yee began posting multiple videos on YouTube, advocating adults molesting and having sex with little kids as well as calling for legalizing child pornography. These were flagged several times by the video hosting website, and his account was suspended there. He continued to advocate child rape on his Facebook account and pushed his YouTube subscribers to the Facebook content, which got his YouTube account ultimately terminated last week. Now his main pedophilia advocacy has shifted over to Facebook.
“The [Board of Immigration Appeals’] decision means that, subject to Amos passing any pending or new security and background checks, he will have been granted asylum in the United States,” Grossman tells NPR. “This means he cannot be deported to Singapore and will have the protections of the U.S. Government. Within one year, he will be eligible to obtain residency, and then four years later, citizenship.”
So since he was granted asylum in 2017, he will be eligible to apply for U.S. permanent residency this year, and in 4 years, he’ll be eligible to become a citizen of the United States and peddle pedophilia propaganda here for the rest of his life.
In a Dec. 2, 2017 video, he claimed that his past residence in Chicago kicked him out after child protective services wouldn’t allow him to be in the same house as the foster children living there. Gee, I wonder why. (I couldn’t independently verify this event, but this was Amos Yee’s own claim.) So, according to Amos Yee’s personal account, even Chicago’s child protective services think he’s a threat. Then, why don’t the immigration authorities step up and recognize it too?
If this is not proof of how screwed up our immigration system is, I don’t know what is.
