The Rolex 24 at Daytona Beach has not even started and already, the anti-sex extremists who want to criminalize sex work are pushing the debunked and discredited claim that sex trafficking is rampant during the Super Bowl.
It was during Super Bowl 44 in 2010 that this bald faced lie started to surface from politicians, “rescue” organizations and law enforcement — the latter of whom should know better, with false ads being aired on TV, radio and in print in these cases. The claim that sex trafficking is rampant during the Super Bowl is so baseless, the centrist Washington Post gave the claim four Pinocchios, the worst fact checking rating possible at the moment.
The fact is that sex trafficking is not rampant at all. In fact, sex trafficking is about as rare as voter fraud.
The Global Alliance reports that these lies usually start about 18 months in advance, meaning that they get a huge head start on churning out these lies before we get a chance to counter them. They even posted some sources to start with in countering these lies.
Oh and yea, the same professional liars we elect and vow to keep us safe make the same baseless claim about sex trafficking being linked to every major sporting event (the College Football Playoff Championship game, the Australian Open, the 24 Hours of Daytona, the Daytona 500, the NCAA Women’s and Men’s tournament, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the Masters, the Indianapolis 500, the Coca-Cola 600, the French Open, the Stanley Cup finals, the NBA Finals, the College Baseball and Softball World Series, the PGA Tour’s US Open, Wimbledon, the British Open, the PGA Championship, the WTA’s US Open, the Southern 500, the Brickyard 400, the WNBA Finals, the Alabama 500 and the World Series) despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. All sex workers and their clients want to do is have a box of Little Debbie oatmeal pies and relax. They should not have to worry about being harassed and assaulted by cops due to slanderous hysteria about sex trafficking. All these arrests of women and men for consensual buying of sex do is make people hate the police.
Dr. Eric Sprankle wants to remind you to call out your bffs and family members if you spot this lie anywhere on social media.
I will do my best to call the nonsense out. Will you?
