Here’s the tweet, and his subsequent DEFENSE of it, along with a few replies. It pretty much speaks for itself, so have at him:
Child sexual abuse has always happened, is happening, and will always continue. Two days of outrage on Twitter and participating in a 10-person vigil may make you feel so noble but that’s all just about you, not those who’ve been victimized
@ninoqazi The outrage won’t last because people are assholes. Child molestation was ok before MeToo and it will be ok again. We’ll pretend it doesn’t happen. I don’t think I was being subtle about it
This is a Newsweek editor. Newsweek is not sending their best.
Also, sort of amusing that he thinks the angry tweet assumed he worked for the State Department, instead of just ALERTING the State Department:
Looks like Newsweek has responded already:
