the most cynical and jaded among you will have a hard time believing at me as the most cynical and most jaded I found it hard to believe somebody emailed the story to me it's the first I'd heard of it and before I click the link I thought based on the description in the email I thought wow there's got to be more to this there's no way no no way then I click the link and I find out no this is exactly it the headline in the Des Moines Register convicted of sex crimes as a man felon no longer deemed threat because of gender change translation a man who raped 15 children including a one-year-old baby is now getting out of prison because he claims to be a woman this is really happening this is really happening in the United States in the year 2020 so I want to get into the details of this case and then break down just how outrageous this really is I know it seems like there's no need to explain why it's outrageous but it because it's self-evident it would seem but this case is so unjust so preposterous that there are levels of lunacy you may not notice at first it's like some sort of grotesque onion where you pull back one layer and there's another and another another we'll

I've got to read to you basically this whole story of the Des Moines Register as reported by Tom Cullen the reporter because I just you need I want to give you all the details about this all right so the Iowa attorney general's office is the Des Moines Register the Iowa attorney general's office is no longer seeking the commitment of a former Midwest Christian services student convicted of myriad as sex crimes because the individual now identifies as a woman court records show the state dismissed the application on january 9th attorney general spokesman lynn hicks wouldn't comment on the reason for the dismissal other than to say an offender's hormone levels are an important part of substantiating and offenders likelihood of recidivism in November the Storm Lake Times reported that Joseph Matthew Smith a 23 year old convicted of molesting a fellow MCs student in 2014 was undergoing medical treatment that is needed prior to potentially undergoing gender reassignment surgery Smith has received treatment for gender reassignment over the past two years at Newton Correctional Facility she first expressed I'm reading the article so I'm gonna be using the pronoun she' to describe this man but every time I say she in your head put the scare quotes around it okay she first expressed a desire to get started on transgender classification in October 2017 and started using female pronouns Smith has expressed a preference to identify its Josie according to court documents Hicks said that we don't believe we have evidence sufficient to prove Josie Smith has a significant chance of reoffending an Iowa Department of Corrections spokesman said Smith was transferred on Saturday to the Sioux County or the sioux city residential treatment facility for transitional release Hicks cautioned the public not to overreact to Smith's upcoming release Smith will be subject to sex offender registration for the rest of her life Hicks said which includes regular meetings with a probation officer and a listing on an attorney General Clearing House so don't worry yes he's a serial sex offender but he's gonna be on a list and he's gonna have meetings so don't be concerned Josie Smith according to Hicks says we will be will be subject to strict sex offender reporting required of those who commit the crime she did she'll be subject to supervision for the rest of her life a preliminary report prepared by the state's expert dr. Jeffrey Davis says Smith molested as many as 15 victims ranging from ages 1 to 13 before being sentenced to prison in December 2015 the report found the likelihood of reoffending within 5 years of release exceeded 20% because victims were of both genders and because Smith was under the age 25 and never had a long-term relationship his myth has has not had an intimate relationship the report says his sexual encounters appeared to have primarily involved molestation including his own molestation by multiple perpetrators or his victimization of others he was molested as a child starting at the age of seven okay and then it goes on from there I'm saying there's any other details here that are that are important dr. Tracey Thompson Thomas a forensic psychologist said that the statute that outlines civil commitment requires the state to essentially prove an offender has a chance offending greater than 51% for the rest of his life that becomes harder to prove when her defender significantly lowers his his testosterone levels which has a significantly higher impact on sex drive than estrogen okay where do we even begin as I said there are many layers of this putrid rancid onion so in no particular order let's start here first of all it's not even true that this man this man this dude this male individual this male scumbag I should say it's not true that he's less likely to reoffending to a female quote unquote that's simply not true in fact they actually did a study on this a legitimate study well the the the longest and most involved study of its kind as far as I know where they it involves 324 people over the course of 30 years and they looked at whether there was any change in of several different things but including criminality reduction in crime including violent crimes for transgenders who transitioned from male to female and they found no they found that these male to females retain the same rate of violent crime as regular males probably because they're still male at the end of the day second even if it was true it's beside the point even if it was true that his chances of reoffending have now been somewhat or even significantly diminished because he's on these hormone pills that's would still be beside the point it's it's irrelevant because we're missing something here and it's a big thing and that that thing is called justice the point of prison is not simply to segregate dangerous people so that so that you know when they're supposedly not dangerous anymore we can release them that's not the whole point that's that's part of the point segregation of dangerous people is part of the point of prison it's not the entire point not even close to the entire point and it's not the main point if it was then why is somebody like I don't know Bernie Madoff still in prison he's probably not a danger to anybody anymore is he still if he's still alive I mean is he still haven't much sure but if he is he's probably not a danger to danger anybody anymore yeah he scammed hundreds of people out of their life savings but probably he wouldn't be able to do it again after he's famous for doing it the first time and so release him from prison put him on a scam artist registry and you know then he does then he can go about his life we could have a registry for everything a murderer registry car car thief registry no need for prisons anymore in fact with murder think about think about it just as a hypothetical example but one that has many analogous cases think about someone say a man in his 50s who murders his wife in a fit of passion after finding out that she cheated on him okay what are the chances that that guy will kill somebody else he's not a serial killer he's not even necessarily a psychopath let's say he lived the first 50 years of his life never hurt anybody so what are the chances that he does it again I probably less than I would say significantly less than 50% so if you're letting this guy out of prison why put people murder others in a crime of passion in prison their risk of killing again is is pretty low probably well that doesn't work because for one thing being on a registry having your name on a database doesn't do a single damn thing to prevent you from committing a crime for another it's not only about crime prevention it's about justice justice matters to a lot it matters a lot so I don't care if you can look into a crystal ball and tell me that this dude will never hurt another child child again you can't and if you did have a crystal ball telling you that then I would say your crystal ball is defective because he will do it again will people who are serial child molesters people who get into their 20s and as the report says they have had have had many sexual interactions but all of them are molestation whether to him or by him people like that they don't snap out of it you let him out of prison in his early 20s he's not gonna spend the rest of sixty years of it you know the final 60 years of his life or however however long he lives on the straight and narrow it's not gonna happen because we're dealing with someone who is sick and dangerous this is a sick and dangerous person and sick and dangerous people don't magically suddenly stop being that but again regardless of that justice the man deserved to be punished for what he did because that is justice you molest a child you molest a one-year-old for God's sake justice calls for you to be in prison forever never to see the light of day again in fact justice calls for a short walk up the gallows and then an even shorter trip back down with a rope around your neck that's what it calls for this guy shouldn't even be living anymore he should be he should he should be executed that's what we should be doing with serial child molesters I'm very much convinced of that but at a minimum justice calls for permanent life incarceration there is no benefit to society at all to being lenient on child molesters third point this man was molested as a child that's not an excuse for what he did but my point is he was molested as a child and then he became a serial child molester and then he goes to jail and then he decides he's really a woman do you think that revelation was due to some deep insight this guy has about his interior self do you think all of these details in fact that he's a sexual degenerate who was abused as a child you think that's irrelevant to the sudden identification as a woman even if it's true that a man can really be a woman inside whatever that whatever the hell that means even if that was true which it isn't but even at what even if it was does any sane person think that that's the case for this particular guy isn't it incredibly obvious that he is just a confused sick depraved human being and his desire to live as a woman is yet another one of his perverse fantasies isn't that obvious to everybody with a brain again regardless of how you feel about transgenderism generally the reality in this specific case should be obvious to everybody and he gets to leave prison because he transitioned I'm sure that had nothing to do with it right the fact that he gets to leave now because he transitioned just like the guys who discover their inner femininity and then what do you know get to walk into a women's locker room but we're told no that's got nothing to do with it they would never be motive nobody would ever be motivated by that so if you transition you get to get you can get out of jail free you can go into women's locker rooms but no no no no that's it that would never be anyone's motivation ever no no no it could never ever have it's impossible right forth point and yet in spite of all this the person who wrote the article I just read and the officials interviewed in the in the article least one of the officials they all reverently use the pronouns that this sicko this baby rapist wants why do you actually think he's a woman is that really what you think the guy who wrote this article and is using the word sheet you really is that really you think this guy's a woman is that you you really believe that if not why are you barking like a dog and using the language he demands why are you barking on command on this guy's command he says call me a woman okay then I will why you can't even look at this guy and say sorry sorry buddy no okay what you want makes no difference to me but you don't wanna hurt his feelings you don't hurt the feelings of a man who molested a child multiple children that's your concern you're gonna sacrifice truth you're gonna sacrifice rationality you're gonna sacrifice your dignity you're gonna humiliate yourself embarrass yourself and play along with this nonsense all simply to preserve the feelings of a child rapist really how spineless can you be this is beyond spineless this is this is boneless you are now a gelatinous puddle of a person laying there flaccid and helpless with no will of your own then you would actually debase yourself by using this person's preferred pronouns fifth point let's um let's not allow the judicial malpractice involved in releasing this man from prison distract from the gem the malpractice involved in the fact that he was allowed to transition in prison in the first place on the taxpayers dime remember what it said Smith has received treatment for generate assignment over the past two years at Newton Correctional Facility so this guy molest 15 kids goes to jail gets a free gender transition out of the bargain is now released again and and and here again we have we have the feelings that confused arranged feelings of a pedophile give an absolute top billing top priority what is the argument in favor of you of using tax money to help this guy transition there's no argument other than it would make him feel good and he would feel bad if he couldn't do it that's the argument that wins the day that outweighs everything else and once again why does he want to transition is it because he's identified some mysterious mystical truth about his inner self or is it because this is another one of his six sexual fantasies what which do you think we now have prisons spending money tax money to help pedophiles live out their fantasies in prison what if he wanted to be a furry would you go and get them a dog costume well if we had a BDSM thing would you build them a sex dungeon I mean how far does this go this is there are we are at a point where literally no words can adequately describe how crazy things have gotten and maybe you have the same feeling I do but every day I feel like there's there's a small collection of sane people left in this country and every day another person abandons the same tribe and I always feel such betrayal when they do it and one way I know is that you know I see yet another person who I thought I thought was who I thought was rational and had a little bit of of a spine you know I see them talk think about a case like this and saying the word she and every time I see that I think I think e - E - brute a you're gonna do it - really I mean am I the only one who sees how am I the only one who can look at someone like this and say I'm like I don't give a damn what your preferred languages I'm gonna say what the reality is I don't care about the fantasy world you're living in you you cannot force me to pretend I don't understand reality it's not gonna happen 6th point the hormone pills this guy is given are supposedly so potent that they're supposed to have changed a sex predator into a non predator they didn't as we stipulated they didn't and even if they did as we stipulated he should still be in jail but it is true in any case that these hormone pills are indeed extremely potent and they do have a profound lasting effect on the people who take them that is true no doubt about that so consider the fact that these same pills the pill that is supposed to have essentially chemically castrated this sex offender in prison and made it so that he is neutered and no longer a danger to the public that same drug is given to children children middle school kids and younger are given the same drug this guy has the same drug that is supposed to have neutered a serial child molester that that drug we give to actual children because they're confused they're confused about their gender and so we give them this drug I just I could go on dissecting everything that's wrong with this story and society but you get the point and this is why it's so important we the the few remaining sane people if you're if you're in you know the same if we're in the same Club if we're in the same club you gotta you gotta you gotta stay with us it's really important sanity that's what we need in this country now forget about everything else you know we're not at the point yet where we can have arguments making a stand for things like patriotism and the even morality what we're not there yet we need to establish basic sanity basic rationality and logic that's what what what needs to be defended first before we can get to anything else but this is where it leads and this is why I emphasize this issue so much because it is a it is a war over reality itself that's what's at stake and when they insist that you start using certain language that isn't true and those sorts of things what they're saying is we demand that you abandon reality that you put feelings over truth that you put our political agenda this is the left you know you put our political agenda over truth and reality and for some reason every day more and more people find themselves persuaded somehow I've had argument all right let's I think we'll go right to emails because I had a few other stories but they're all in the same vein of outrageous things that make me angry but I think maybe just this one for the day will be enough so that I don't have a an aneurysm on camera which would be interesting for the viewer i I admit but I'd prefer I'd prefer not so we'll go to emails Matt wall show at gmail.com Matt well show at gmail.com before we get though there though you know we've been telling you about the pro-life fight and and what the daily wire has been doing and you know obviously you know that for me on this show the the struggle to defend unborn life is the most important thing 60 million children killed since roe v-- wade and that's why this is the number one civil rights issue of our time the number one human rights issue of our time one of the most important human rights issues of all time but we also know that the left has been has been as it has been increasingly going off the deep end getting more extreme in their defense of child murder and part of that effort is also to censor and shut down those of us who stand for for life and and and you know to defend those who can't defend themselves and so they've been going after the daily wired we know that you know when Ben Shapiro spoke at the March for Life last year our advertisers were targeted by left-wing media watchdogs we lost revenue there and that these are efforts that continue but we're not the only ones live action is one of the biggest pro-life voices in the movement and they do some of the most important work in the movement and they've also been targeted continuously over and over again relentlessly by the pro-abortion set and there are entire social media platforms they're no longer allowed on that's why our daily wire.com members are so important your membership helps keep our cameras on our microphones turned up even when the left pressures our sponsors that's why from now until January 31st a portion of any daily wired.com membership will be donated to live action with promo code live action to support awareness and education around the world in this issue this is your last chance so head on over to daily wire.com and make your pro-life voice heard there's only a few days left to take advantage of this plan and you want to do it now so again join daily wire.com make your pro-life voice heard before it's too late all right let's go to emails this is from Brandon says dear Matt first I must say you appear to have good taste in most things drink entertainment books and so on but if I did always fall short of what is truly great your affinity for Christopher Nolan and whiskey choices are just a few examples I know this marks for me for immediate execution upon your ascension to rightful rule as theocratic overlord but hey you really can't do anything about it right now anyway after the glutton for second-best I took your advice and had to listen to John Prine the first song I listened to was hello in there I found myself blinking back tears perhaps perhaps it was the fact that I just found out my first child is going to be a boy or perhaps I need to re-evaluate your status as picker of second best things either way thank you for the suggestion Brandon I am because I'm so merciful I'm going to overlook all of those vicious insults you leveled at me and simply say you're welcome for pointing you in the direction of good music and also for the record because I don't like being slandered I don't know where you get this my affinity for Christopher Nolan thing I think my position has been that I think Christopher Nolan many of his films are overrated I think is a good director good filmmaker but you might be confusing with bent with ben shapiro he's the Christopher Nolan guy I'm not I'm not really I'm kind of I'm lukewarm on Nolan for the record this is from Mark says hey Matt you posted on Twitter about spanking kids and I wanted to answer that I posted a Twitter poll for people if they is is is spanking a child is that a ethical and effective form of punishments but interesting about 30,000 people have responded to the poll and last I checked it was about I don't know 75 25 in favor of spanking kids back to mark he says I find that he says I want to answer that I spanked my kids I find that is an extremely effective method of raising my kids well my kids are usually the most well-behaved kids in the room or other parents and people are constantly commenting on how well-behaved my kids are especially my daughter when I stopped using spankings for time my kids behavior became noticeably worse so I resumed there were a few times when I overheard her talking to her cousins while they were plotting to do something mischievous and she said I'm not going to do that because I'll get a spank I think it's important to do spanking right you should do it in anger you need to be consistent and you should talk to your kids about what's going on and why it's happening with my kids I sit them down we talk about the wrong behavior they did the consequence then we do it that the spanking then we talked to them about what happened while comforting them and finished with a prayer for strength going forward I'm not going to say not spanking is the wrong choice but I think to say it is wrong to do it is inappropriate also when you mentioned studies the problem with the studies done on this subject is that there is no causal relationship between spanking and negative outcomes the most that can be that can come from it is a correlation dr. Gershon ease on physical punishment have some shortcomings quote unfortunately all research on parent discipline is going to be correlational because we can't randomly assign kids to parents for an experiment all right mark yeah it's true that studies on the subject are hard to conduct a real study a real controlled study of something like this would have to involve not necessarily randomly assigning kids to parents but randomly assigning parents to spank their kids you have to have a group of parents and you say okay this group over here you're gonna spank your kids this group you won't and then we'll check back in ten years and see how it's going but that would be obviously unethical among all the other problems with it so that hasn't been done so it's a hard thing to study and that's why my perspective on it doesn't hinge on studies my point in bringing up the studies was just to address all the people who claim that spanking leads to more disciplined kids and more well-behaved kids and I don't think there's any empirical evidence for that there aren't any studies as you point out I just I don't think there's any evidence and and although studies of this are hard to conduct and aren't conclusive you can still you could still look at various factors and broadly compare spanked kids to non spanked and that's been done and I don't think these spanking leads to better behaved kids theory has been supported by any of the studies I or any of the research that I that I've looked at my issue and I think we've talked about this before but my issue with spanking is multifaceted number one there's a real do as I say not as I do element to this I tilma I tell my kids all the time use your words don't hit I'm constantly telling them that and then but I'm gonna turn around and hit them I can then I can insist all I want that no it's different it's it's not the same blah blah blah but a hit is a hit and I think I under mine my own authority and my message as a parent when I do the thing I'm telling them not to do that doesn't mean that everything I do a kid should be allowed to do but if I'm saying that something sort of in principle is wrong and I have if I have this consistent message of don't do this don't do this too then I shouldn't be doing it myself I I can I can think of very few exceptions to that another one would be yelling and shouting I tell my kids all the time don't yell don't shout do I do it myself sometimes yes but I also know that it's I shouldn't be because I'm I'm the one constantly telling them not to do it I if I do it and I tell them not to kids are gonna make a connection it does all as I said all we want we can say that's different now but bla bla that's not how they see it number two I think spanking may kind of reek of desperation a really in command and in control parent should be able to instill discipline and keep a handle on things without resorting to hitting their children and I can't remember who said about red somewhere somebody drew this I thought interesting distinction between being a demanding parents and being a commanding parent and the distinction is anybody can demand demand is your you're insisting and you're pleading and and and maybe even your spanking but you're trying to control your kids and they're doing what you want that's demanding and we all make demands as parents but the goal is to be commanding to be a commanding presence where they listen because they respect you and they listen simply because you're saying it and so you have command over the household now nobody can do complete that task perfectly obviously but that's the goal and I think that spanking tends to lend more towards the demanding parenting style than commanding and then three I think there are real ethical concerns with using physical force against a child with trying to extract good behavior through physical force and the fear of physical force I know a lot of people grow up in homes where they feared their dads and they behaved because they were afraid of being smacked and I know a lot of people defend that saying I turned out okay but whether you actually turned out okay or not I still don't think it's the right approach or the right relationship you're supposed to have with your child you think about think about a child's it's a very small frail helpless creature we're talking about here and I don't know imposing yourself physically in that way using physical force on a small child as an adult I think there should be other ways and there are other ways you should be able to one thing you should be able to outsmart your child and I think when you resort to spanking what you're saying is I got nothing else and you've beaten me you beat me in the psychological game and so now I'm gonna beat you and I know look okay I I know people are gonna say is a difference between beating and smacking a spanking III understand that but it is still you're physically hitting your child right that is what you're doing so I understand the distinction may be between beating and spanking but sometimes parents who spank their children I think they're in a little bit of denial they try they even try to draw distinctions between hitting a child and spanking no you are hitting you are dictionary definition that's hitting you are hitting the child to get the child to behave and when you put it like that it sounds kind of awful and but that's the correct way of putting it because that is what you're doing right I and is going back to I think I think there are things we do as parents spanking maybe is one of them where people do it primarily because their parents did it and their parents did it in their parents did it and it's it's it's sort of a normal thing for parents to do I think that's the main reason people do it not because they've looked at research that convinced them not because they've really thought about the ethical implications of it maybe I know they're exceptions maybe you have but I think for a lot of parents they do it just because it's what their parents did and I'm not saying that this generation of par

the Iowa attorney general's office is the Des Moines Register the Iowa attorney general's office is no longer seeking the commitment of a former Midwest Christian services student convicted of myriad as sex crimes because the individual now identifies as a woman court records show the state dismissed the application on january 9th attorney general spokesman lynn hicks wouldn't comment on the reason for the dismissal other than to say an offender's hormone levels are an important part of substantiating and offenders likelihood of recidivism in November the Storm Lake Times reported that Joseph Matthew Smith a 23 year old convicted of molesting a fellow MCs student in 2014 was undergoing medical treatment that is needed prior to potentially undergoing gender reassignment surgery Smith has received treatment for gender reassignment over the past two years at Newton Correctional Facility she first expressed I'm reading the article so I'm gonna be using the pronoun she' to describe this man but every time I say she in your head put the scare quotes around it okay she first expressed a desire to get started on transgender classification in October 2017 and started using female pronouns Smith has expressed a preference to identify its Josie according to court documents Hicks said that we don't believe we have evidence sufficient to prove Josie Smith has a significant chance of reoffending an Iowa Department of Corrections spokesman said Smith was transferred on Saturday to the Sioux County or the sioux city residential treatment facility for transitional release Hicks cautioned the public not to overreact to Smith's upcoming release Smith will be subject to sex offender registration for the rest of her life Hicks said which includes regular meetings with a probation officer and a listing on an attorney General Clearing House so don't worry yes he's a serial sex offender but he's gonna be on a list and he's gonna have meetings so don't be concerned Josie Smith according to Hicks says we will be will be subject to strict sex offender reporting required of those who commit the crime she did she'll be subject to supervision for the rest of her life a preliminary report prepared by the state's expert dr. Jeffrey Davis says Smith molested as many as 15 victims ranging from ages 1 to 13 before being sentenced to prison in December 2015 the report found the likelihood of reoffending within 5 years of release exceeded 20% because victims were of both genders and because Smith was under the age 25 and never had a long-term relationship his myth has has not had an intimate relationship the report says his sexual encounters appeared to have primarily involved molestation including his own molestation by multiple perpetrators or his victimization of others he was molested as a child starting at the age of seven okay and then it goes on from there I'm saying there's any other details here that are that are important dr. Tracey Thompson Thomas a forensic psychologist said that the statute that outlines civil commitment requires the state to essentially prove an offender has a chance offending greater than 51% for the rest of his life that becomes harder to prove when her defender significantly lowers his his testosterone levels which has a significantly higher impact on sex drive than estrogen okay where do we even begin as I said there are many layers of this putrid rancid onion so in no particular order let's start here first of all it's not even true that this man this man this dude this male individual this male scumbag I should say it's not true that he's less likely to reoffending to a female quote unquote that's simply not true in fact they actually did a study on this a legitimate study well the the the longest and most involved study of its kind as far as I know where they it involves 324 people over the course of 30 years and they looked at whether there was any change in of several different things but including criminality reduction in crime including violent crimes for transgenders who transitioned from male to female and they found no they found that these male to females retain the same rate of violent crime as regular males probably because they're still male at the end of the day second even if it was true it's beside the point even if it was true that his chances of reoffending have now been somewhat or even significantly diminished because he's on these hormone pills that's would still be beside the point it's it's irrelevant because we're missing something here and it's a big thing and that that thing is called justice the point of prison is not simply to segregate dangerous people so that so that you know when they're supposedly not dangerous anymore we can release them that's not the whole point that's that's part of the point segregation of dangerous people is part of the point of prison it's not the entire point not even close to the entire point and it's not the main point if it was then why is somebody like I don't know Bernie Madoff still in prison he's probably not a danger to anybody anymore is he still if he's still alive I mean is he still haven't much sure but if he is he's probably not a danger to danger anybody anymore yeah he scammed hundreds of people out of their life savings but probably he wouldn't be able to do it again after he's famous for doing it the first time and so release him from prison put him on a scam artist registry and you know then he does then he can go about his life we could have a registry for everything a murderer registry car car thief registry no need for prisons anymore in fact with murder think about think about it just as a hypothetical example but one that has many analogous cases think about someone say a man in his 50s who murders his wife in a fit of passion after finding out that she cheated on him okay what are the chances that that guy will kill somebody else he's not a serial killer he's not even necessarily a psychopath let's say he lived the first 50 years of his life never hurt anybody so what are the chances that he does it again I probably less than I would say significantly less than 50% so if you're letting this guy out of prison why put people murder others in a crime of passion in prison their risk of killing again is is pretty low probably well that doesn't work because for one thing being on a registry having your name on a database doesn't do a single damn thing to prevent you from committing a crime for another it's not only about crime prevention it's about justice justice matters to a lot it matters a lot so I don't care if you can look into a crystal ball and tell me that this dude will never hurt another child child again you can't and if you did have a crystal ball telling you that then I would say your crystal ball is defective because he will do it again will people who are serial child molesters people who get into their 20s and as the report says they have had have had many sexual interactions but all of them are molestation whether to him or by him people like that they don't snap out of it you let him out of prison in his early 20s he's not gonna spend the rest of sixty years of it you know the final 60 years of his life or however however long he lives on the straight and narrow it's not gonna happen because we're dealing with someone who is sick and dangerous this is a sick and dangerous person and sick and dangerous people don't magically suddenly stop being that but again regardless of that justice the man deserved to be punished for what he did because that is justice you molest a child you molest a one-year-old for God's sake justice calls for you to be in prison forever never to see the light of day again in fact justice calls for a short walk up the gallows and then an even shorter trip back down with a rope around your neck that's what it calls for this guy shouldn't even be living anymore he should be he should he should be executed that's what we should be doing with serial child molesters I'm very much convinced of that but at a minimum justice calls for permanent life incarceration there is no benefit to society at all to being lenient on child molesters third point this man was molested as a child that's not an excuse for what he did but my point is he was molested as a child and then he became a serial child molester and then he goes to jail and then he decides he's really a woman do you think that revelation was due to some deep insight this guy has about his interior self do you think all of these details in fact that he's a sexual degenerate who was abused as a child you think that's irrelevant to the sudden identification as a woman even if it's true that a man can really be a woman inside whatever that whatever the hell that means even if that was true which it isn't but even at what even if it was does any sane person think that that's the case for this particular guy isn't it incredibly obvious that he is just a confused sick depraved human being and his desire to live as a woman is yet another one of his perverse fantasies isn't that obvious to everybody with a brain again regardless of how you feel about transgenderism generally the reality in this specific case should be obvious to everybody and he gets to leave prison because he transitioned I'm sure that had nothing to do with it right the fact that he gets to leave now because he transitioned just like the guys who discover their inner femininity and then what do you know get to walk into a women's locker room but we're told no that's got nothing to do with it they would never be motive nobody would ever be motivated by that so if you transition you get to get you can get out of jail free you can go into women's locker rooms but no no no no that's it that would never be anyone's motivation ever no no no it could never ever have it's impossible right forth point and yet in spite of all this the person who wrote the article I just read and the officials interviewed in the in the article least one of the officials they all reverently use the pronouns that this sicko this baby rapist wants why do you actually think he's a woman is that really what you think the guy who wrote this article and is using the word sheet you really is that really you think this guy's a woman is that you you really believe that if not why are you barking like a dog and using the language he demands why are you barking on command on this guy's command he says call me a woman okay then I will why you can't even look at this guy and say sorry sorry buddy no okay what you want makes no difference to me but you don't wanna hurt his feelings you don't hurt the feelings of a man who molested a child multiple children that's your concern you're gonna sacrifice truth you're gonna sacrifice rationality you're gonna sacrifice your dignity you're gonna humiliate yourself embarrass yourself and play along with this nonsense all simply to preserve the feelings of a child rapist really how spineless can you be this is beyond spineless this is this is boneless you are now a gelatinous puddle of a person laying there flaccid and helpless with no will of your own then you would actually debase yourself by using this person's preferred pronouns fifth point let's um let's not allow the judicial malpractice involved in releasing this man from prison distract from the gem the malpractice involved in the fact that he was allowed to transition in prison in the first place on the taxpayers dime remember what it said Smith has received treatment for generate assignment over the past two years at Newton Correctional Facility so this guy molest 15 kids goes to jail gets a free gender transition out of the bargain is now released again and and and here again we have we have the feelings that confused arranged feelings of a pedophile give an absolute top billing top priority what is the argument in favor of you of using tax money to help this guy transition there's no argument other than it would make him feel good and he would feel bad if he couldn't do it that's the argument that wins the day that outweighs everything else and once again why does he want to transition is it because he's identified some mysterious mystical truth about his inner self or is it because this is another one of his six sexual fantasies what which do you think we now have prisons spending money tax money to help pedophiles live out their fantasies in prison what if he wanted to be a furry would you go and get them a dog costume well if we had a BDSM thing would you build them a sex dungeon I mean how far does this go this is there are we are at a point where literally no words can adequately describe how crazy things have gotten and maybe you have the same feeling I do but every day I feel like there's there's a small collection of sane people left in this country and every day another person abandons the same tribe and I always feel such betrayal when they do it and one way I know is that you know I see yet another person who I thought I thought was who I thought was rational and had a little bit of of a spine you know I see them talk think about a case like this and saying the word she and every time I see that I think I think e - E - brute a you're gonna do it - really I mean am I the only one who sees how am I the only one who can look at someone like this and say I'm like I don't give a damn what your preferred languages I'm gonna say what the reality is I don't care about the fantasy world you're living in you you cannot force me to pretend I don't understand reality it's not gonna happen 6th point the hormone pills this guy is given are supposedly so potent that they're supposed to have changed a sex predator into a non predator they didn't as we stipulated they didn't and even if they did as we stipulated he should still be in jail but it is true in any case that these hormone pills are indeed extremely potent and they do have a profound lasting effect on the people who take them that is true no doubt about that so consider the fact that these same pills the pill that is supposed to have essentially chemically castrated this sex offender in prison and made it so that he is neutered and no longer a danger to the public that same drug is given to children children middle school kids and younger are given the same drug this guy has the same drug that is supposed to have neutered a serial child molester that that drug we give to actual children because they're confused they're confused about their gender and so we give them this drug I just I could go on dissecting everything that's wrong with this story and society but you get the point and this is why it's so important we the the few remaining sane people if you're if you're in you know the same if we're in the same Club if we're in the same club you gotta you gotta you gotta stay with us it's really important sanity that's what we need in this country now forget about everything else you know we're not at the point yet where we can have arguments making a stand for things like patriotism and the even morality what we're not there yet we need to establish basic sanity basic rationality and logic that's what what what needs to be defended first before we can get to anything else but this is where it leads and this is why I emphasize this issue so much because it is a it is a war over reality itself that's what's at stake and when they insist that you start using certain language that isn't true and those sorts of things what they're saying is we demand that you abandon reality that you put feelings over truth that you put our political agenda this is the left you know you put our political agenda over truth and reality and for some reason every day more and more people find themselves persuaded somehow I've had argument all right let's I think we'll go right to emails because I had a few other stories but they're all in the same vein of outrageous things that make me angry but I think maybe just this one for the day will be enough so that I don't have a an aneurysm on camera which would be interesting for the viewer i I admit but I'd prefer I'd prefer not so we'll go to emails Matt wall show at gmail.com Matt well show at gmail.com before we get though there though you know we've been telling you about the pro-life fight and and what the daily wire has been doing and you know obviously you know that for me on this show the the struggle to defend unborn life is the most important thing 60 million children killed since roe v-- wade and that's why this is the number one civil rights issue of our time the number one human rights issue of our time one of the most important human rights issues of all time but we also know that the left has been has been as it has been increasingly going off the deep end getting more extreme in their defense of child murder and part of that effort is also to censor and shut down those of us who stand for for life and and and you know to defend those who can't defend themselves and so they've been going after the daily wired we know that you know when Ben Shapiro spoke at the March for Life last year our advertisers were targeted by left-wing media watchdogs we lost revenue there and that these are efforts that continue but we're not the only ones live action is one of the biggest pro-life voices in the movement and they do some of the most important work in the movement and they've also been targeted continuously over and over again relentlessly by the pro-abortion set and there are entire social media platforms they're no longer allowed on that's why our daily wire.com members are so important your membership helps keep our cameras on our microphones turned up even when the left pressures our sponsors that's why from now until January 31st a portion of any daily wired.com membership will be donated to live action with promo code live action to support awareness and education around the world in this issue this is your last chance so head on over to daily wire.com and make your pro-life voice heard there's only a few days left to take advantage of this plan and you want to do it now so again join daily wire.com make your pro-life voice heard before it's too late all right let's go to emails this is from Brandon says dear Matt first I must say you appear to have good taste in most things drink entertainment books and so on but if I did always fall short of what is truly great your affinity for Christopher Nolan and whiskey choices are just a few examples I know this marks for me for immediate execution upon your ascension to rightful rule as theocratic overlord but hey you really can't do anything about it right now anyway after the glutton for second-best I took your advice and had to listen to John Prine the first song I listened to was hello in there I found myself blinking back tears perhaps perhaps it was the fact that I just found out my first child is going to be a boy or perhaps I need to re-evaluate your status as picker of second best things either way thank you for the suggestion Brandon I am because I'm so merciful I'm going to overlook all of those vicious insults you leveled at me and simply say you're welcome for pointing you in the direction of good music and also for the record because I don't like being slandered I don't know where you get this my affinity for Christopher Nolan thing I think my position has been that I think Christopher Nolan many of his films are overrated I think is a good director good filmmaker but you might be confusing with bent with ben shapiro he's the Christopher Nolan guy I'm not I'm not really I'm kind of I'm lukewarm on Nolan for the record this is from Mark says hey Matt you posted on Twitter about spanking kids and I wanted to answer that I posted a Twitter poll for people if they is is is spanking a child is that a ethical and effective form of punishments but interesting about 30,000 people have responded to the poll and last I checked it was about I don't know 75 25 in favor of spanking kids back to mark he says I find that he says I want to answer that I spanked my kids I find that is an extremely effective method of raising my kids well my kids are usually the most well-behaved kids in the room or other parents and people are constantly commenting on how well-behaved my kids are especially my daughter when I stopped using spankings for time my kids behavior became noticeably worse so I resumed there were a few times when I overheard her talking to her cousins while they were plotting to do something mischievous and she said I'm not going to do that because I'll get a spank I think it's important to do spanking right you should do it in anger you need to be consistent and you should talk to your kids about what's going on and why it's happening with my kids I sit them down we talk about the wrong behavior they did the consequence then we do it that the spanking then we talked to them about what happened while comforting them and finished with a prayer for strength going forward I'm not going to say not spanking is the wrong choice but I think to say it is wrong to do it is inappropriate also when you mentioned studies the problem with the studies done on this subject is that there is no causal relationship between spanking and negative outcomes the most that can be that can come from it is a correlation dr. Gershon ease on physical punishment have some shortcomings quote unfortunately all research on parent discipline is going to be correlational because we can't randomly assign kids to parents for an experiment all right mark yeah it's true that studies on the subject are hard to conduct a real study a real controlled study of something like this would have to involve not necessarily randomly assigning kids to parents but randomly assigning parents to spank their kids you have to have a group of parents and you say okay this group over here you're gonna spank your kids this group you won't and then we'll check back in ten years and see how it's going but that would be obviously unethical among all the other problems with it so that hasn't been done so it's a hard thing to study and that's why my perspective on it doesn't hinge on studies my point in bringing up the studies was just to address all the people who claim that spanking leads to more disciplined kids and more well-behaved kids and I don't think there's any empirical evidence for that there aren't any studies as you point out I just I don't think there's any evidence and and although studies of this are hard to conduct and aren't conclusive you can still you could still look at various factors and broadly compare spanked kids to non spanked and that's been done and I don't think these spanking leads to better behaved kids theory has been supported by any of the studies I or any of the research that I that I've looked at my issue and I think we've talked about this before but my issue with spanking is multifaceted number one there's a real do as I say not as I do element to this I tilma I tell my kids all the time use your words don't hit I'm constantly telling them that and then but I'm gonna turn around and hit them I can then I can insist all I want that no it's different it's it's not the same blah blah blah but a hit is a hit and I think I under mine my own authority and my message as a parent when I do the thing I'm telling them not to do that doesn't mean that everything I do a kid should be allowed to do but if I'm saying that something sort of in principle is wrong and I have if I have this consistent message of don't do this don't do this too then I shouldn't be doing it myself I I can I can think of very few exceptions to that another one would be yelling and shouting I tell my kids all the time don't yell don't shout do I do it myself sometimes yes but I also know that it's I shouldn't be because I'm I'm the one constantly telling them not to do it I if I do it and I tell them not to kids are gonna make a connection it does all as I said all we want we can say that's different now but bla bla that's not how they see it number two I think spanking may kind of reek of desperation a really in command and in control parent should be able to instill discipline and keep a handle on things without resorting to hitting their children and I can't remember who said about red somewhere somebody drew this I thought interesting distinction between being a demanding parents and being a commanding parent and the distinction is anybody can demand demand is your you're insisting and you're pleading and and and maybe even your spanking but you're trying to control your kids and they're doing what you want that's demanding and we all make demands as parents but the goal is to be commanding to be a commanding presence where they listen because they respect you and they listen simply because you're saying it and so you have command over the household now nobody can do complete that task perfectly obviously but that's the goal and I think that spanking tends to lend more towards the demanding parenting style than commanding and then three I think there are real ethical concerns with using physical force against a child with trying to extract good behavior through physical force and the fear of physical force I know a lot of people grow up in homes where they feared their dads and they behaved because they were afraid of being smacked and I know a lot of people defend that saying I turned out okay but whether you actually turned out okay or not I still don't think it's the right approach or the right relationship you're supposed to have with your child you think about think about a child's it's a very small frail helpless creature we're talking about here and I don't know imposing yourself physically in that way using physical force on a small child as an adult I think there should be other ways and there are other ways you should be able to one thing you should be able to outsmart your child and I think when you resort to spanking what you're saying is I got nothing else and you've beaten me you beat me in the psychological game and so now I'm gonna beat you and I know look okay I I know people are gonna say is a difference between beating and smacking a spanking III understand that but it is still you're physically hitting your child right that is what you're doing so I understand the distinction may be between beating and spanking but sometimes parents who spank their children I think they're in a little bit of denial they try they even try to draw distinctions between hitting a child and spanking no you are hitting you are dictionary definition that's hitting you are hitting the child to get the child to behave and when you put it like that it sounds kind of awful and but that's the correct way of putting it because that is what you're doing right I and is going back to I think I think there are things we do as parents spanking maybe is one of them where people do it primarily because their parents did it and their parents did it in their parents did it and it's it's it's sort of a normal thing for parents to do I think that's the main reason people do it not because they've looked at research that convinced them not because they've really thought about the ethical implications of it maybe I know they're exceptions maybe you have but I think for a lot of parents they do it just because it's what their parents did and I'm not saying that this generation of par
