David Frum and His Pro-Pedophile Protege Alex Knepper
Note from the NewsReal Blog editors: This article contains disturbing, graphic, uncensored descriptions of sex acts with children. The editorial team has decided to present all the evidence as-is.

“Keep it up, you little pissant. I’ll make it further than you ever will because I’m the same in private as I am in public.”
The sexual exploitation of children is an almost unimaginable horror, abetted by the insidious online movement to paint pedophilia as just another puritan taboo. It should be just as unimaginable that a prominent public intellectual would allow this evil to fester in the conservative movement, but that is precisely what former Bush administration speechwriter David Frum does each time he renews his support of former NewsReal Blog contributor Alex Knepper.
Knepper’s disgusting views on sex have been thoroughly documented in posts we have written here at NewsReal Blog. We have contacted Frum three times to present evidence of Knepper’s degeneracy. In response, he snidely brushed off our documentation, instead focusing his protege’s energy on how to “fight the crazy right.” Never has Frum condemned any of this previously-disclosed material.
On September 20 RedState‘s Lexington_Concord wrote an excellent post summarizing Knepper’s pro-pedophile views and our resulting conflict with FrumForum. And yet, this story still hasn’t gotten the attention it warrants. There’s a young conservative writer on the rise– published at Big Hollywood, NewsBusters, and the Daily Caller, and personally supported by former National Review columnist and former American Enterprise Institute fellow David Frum — and he’s a defender of pedophilia. (When this post’s new material was brought to the attention of Big Hollywood and Andrew Breitbart they quickly committed to not publishing Knepper anymore. NewsBusters made the same commitment, going as far as deleting Knepper’s account. We have not yet heard back from Daily Caller but if it wants to make a similar public statement after reading this post it is invited to do so. We note that it’s been a week since Knepper’s last Daily Caller post — whereas in the same period he has published four posts at Frum Forum — perhaps the team at Editor-In-Chief Tucker Carlson’s publication already discovered the previous posts on this controversy and made the responsible decision to terminate their professional relationship. Kudos to them.)
Knepper continues to claim he’s the target of a NewsReal Blog smear campaign. This week he complained about our “bizarre, obscene allegations” and ripped into blogger Dan Riehl for repeating the charges with “No documentation, no evidence, nothing.”
What follows is a comprehensive look at the evidence.
After reading the remainder of this post, David Frum will no longer be able to smugly turn a blind eye to his protege’s depravity. Knepper’s Internet footprints extend well beyond the conservative blogosphere, and there is no shortage of proof that his defenses of pedophiles and rapists are not merely intellectual exercises, but pleas for validation of his own evil impulses.
First, a brief overview of the already publicized material depicting Knepper’s profoundly disturbing ideas about sex:
- Pedophiles are the new blacks — innocent victims lynched by hysterical demagogues.
- Rape isn’t lethal, so victims have no business calling themselves “survivors.”
- The Marquis de Sade, author of violent, pornographic depictions of child rape, is a “divine” figure whose writing will help people “embrace the fires of sexuality.”
- A 17-year-old is a woman, not a girl, and age is just a number.
- Online opponents should be degraded by calling them “little boy.”
- There’s nothing wrong or unusual about a 20-year-old man being a devoted fan of boyish pop star Justin Bieber.
With all the writings compiled together it’s hard to continue to give Knepper the benefit of the doubt.
Yet in spite of the evidence, Frum still defended Knepper when he guest-blogged at Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish:
Here’s more from the young blogger Alex Knepper whom the folks at NewsRealBlog published for months … but fired as a sex pervert and all-around lying maniac after he offered a post criticizing Ann Coulter. You can see just the kind of dangerous fiend he is too.
It is apparent that Frum considers Knepper an intellectual apostate in his own image, a delightful provocateur whose pot-stirring might someday attract a bit of Web traffic. Frum is too invested in his fetishization of heterodoxy to admit that only a degenerate would spend this much time advocating on behalf of sex offenders, downplaying the severity of rape, and peddling the same arguments as outfits like the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). But like many sex offenders and their supporters, Knepper’s repugnant strategy is to defang his perversions by taking them out of the moral realm and into the intellectual arena, dragging conservatives like Frum along with him.
Before publishing further defenses of Knepper, Frum will want to review his protege’s posting history at GayTeenForum.org in which the “young blogger” demonstrates beyond dispute his sexual attraction to adolescent boys. No pharmacy stocks a more powerful emetic than these posts. We have chosen to present all the relevant evidence that we have uncovered. Again: this material is disturbing and explicit.
First, it is necessary to establish conclusively that the alias “lostpainting” at Gay Teen Forum belongs to Knepper. This can be done by visiting the first link which we found unlocking this perverted secret stash.
A user with the rather unoriginal handle “lestermolester” links to David’s original rebuttal to Knepper and exclaims, “OH SNAP!”
I replied to that post. http://www.frumforum.com/am-i-a-pervert … log-smears
It’s at this point that you’re introduced to the signature that accompanies all of Knepper’s Gay Teen Forum posts:
This should not take Frum by surprise since Knepper once lamented in a FrumForum post:
I’m twenty years old and I can’t even say that I think that Justin Bieber is cute without being called a pedophile by some people.
Later in this Gay Teen Forum thread, Knepper provides further evidence of his identity by expressing his frustration about blogging at NRB:
They rejected all but the most asinine, cliched posts. Of course they rarely generated any traffic. I’m glad to be rid of the site; it’s one of those Obama-is-a-socialist-fanatic sites. I’m usually one of the top traffic-generators everywhere I write — when I wrote for Race42008, I was a top contributor; at FrumForum, my posts generate way more comments on average than almost anyone’s posts besides Frum’s own; at the Eagle, I was far and away the most popular columnist. I have learned from this that working for mindlessly partisan sites is really, really, really not the way for me to go.
In our investigation we also began to see the evidence of our worst fears coming true. In answer to forum member “Milo” asking whether or not he actually was a pervert, Knepper confessed that he would have sex with the underage Bieber if given the chance:
Not in the I-want-to-fuck-a-ten-year-old sense. Sixteen-year-olds like Justin Bieber? Maybe.
As you’ll soon see, this claim of Knepper’s that he is uninterested in prepubescent boys — that he is merely an “ephebophile” (someone interested primarily in 13-16 year old adolescents, as though that’s not just as evil) — is simply not credible.
Thread #2: LP’s Thread of Awesome Shit
Lostpainting then writes,
In the past, I’ve written with NewsRealBlog (left on unfriendly terms — they had a problem with me), Rightosphere.com/Race42008.com (left on friendly terms — was time to move on), and the American University Eagle (infamously — left on friendly terms — but I had a problem with them). I’ve guest-blogged on some sites, too, such as Newsbusters.org. I have a standing offer at Hip Hop Republican that I may take up sometime. I’ve also been quoted in most major news sources (NYT, WaPo, Newsweek, US News & World Report, C-SPAN, etc).
Last piece of evidence. Note the AIM instant messenger handle that Knepper includes on his Facebook bio. It’s “lostpainting4”:
Thread #3: Ode to Chilfs
The preferred terminology of Knepper and his Gay Teen Forum associates for attractive children they want to victimize is “CHILF.” This is a variant of the more well-known term “MILF,” popularized by the teen sex comedy “American Pie.” A “MILF” is an attractive older woman, a so-called “Mom I’d Like to F—.” Thus, a “CHILF” is a “Child I’d Like to F—.” In this thread Knepper posts his own version of the 12 Days of Christmas translated into pedophile pornography:
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my Pooler sent to me
Twelve Biebers jerking
Eleven Archies cumming
Ten Jesses posing
Nine Horizons fucking,
Eight boys a-milking,
Seven fags a-jacking,
Six twinks undressing,
Five naked chilfs
Four emo boys,
Three nude teens,
Two Dylicious pictures,
And a Daniel sending nudes to me!
“Pooler” is another member of the forum who from our research appears to share Knepper’s preference for young boys. “Daniel” seems to be a forum member who was 16 when this ode was posted (he has since changed his handle to “Vortex.”) And “Dylicious” is a very young looking (but legal) member of the forum.
Thread 4: An *embarrassing* lostpainting sex story
This is the most disturbing item we discovered as it features Knepper confessing to a sex act with someone who might be below the age of consent. (We really have no way of knowing for certain yet.) If you want to give Knepper the benefit of the doubt — a practice we no longer do — then you could say that someone being “chilfy” means he only looks like a child.
Chilfy called me last night at fucking 3 in the morning, 5 hours into my earlier-than-usual sleep. He said he wanted me to fuck him. Now, I was still tired and woozy, but I wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. So I drove over and got him.
10 minutes after that, we’re naked and I can’t fucking get it up. I just want to go back to sleep. I don’t even feel like sucking dick. I’m just…tired. I try and try and it comes up here and there but we fail at getting it into his ass.
So, we leave without getting off. He tried to fuck me but his dick was way too fucking big, especially for my tired, not-that-aroused self.
So I just drove him back at 5:00. -___-;
He said that tonight he’s having sex with a girl and he might want to go out with her and he doesn’t like to cheat. So I might lose my chilf.
He didn’t look very chilfy last night, though; he hadn’t shaven…he was all hairy. That made it more difficult to get turned on…boo.
Let it be known to not have sex when you’ve been awoken from a deep sleep. You can’t force yourself to be horny.
Note the line where Knepper confesses that because his sexual partner had not shaved he looked older — and that made getting sexually aroused more difficult. This is critical evidence that Knepper longs for prepubescent boys.
Rylan is another member of the forum. Knepper describes the dream:
It was really hot but totally pedo-y.
“Pedo-y” referring to pedophile, of course. Knepper elaborates on his fantasy:
The hilarious part was when I pulled down his briefs his dick was really tiny like a child’s. It was like, 2 inches hard. I was like Rylan this is so weird this feels so wrong, but he’s like — I’m sorry, I’m such a tiny person all around! And I sucked him off anyway. Was sooooooooooooo fuckin pedo
This is a naked confession of a desire to engage in sexual acts with prepubescent boys whose genitals are “really tiny like a child’s.” Responding to a query about whether he woke up having ejaculated, Knepper responds:
No but I did feel really horny and had to go jerk off to some chilfs
Later in the thread Knepper again opens the door for others to reasonably assume that he has had sex with underage boys before:
In the dream he told me that he was 15, and I gave myself the green light to suck him since I’d already decided I was good to go after James (Dr. Dillamond). Either way it’s totally societally inappropriate but still hilarious.
Not morally wrong, not exploitative to intentionally seek out someone younger and more vulnerable. Just “societally inappropriate.” In other words, Knepper believes his views on sexual consent are superior to those forced upon him by an unenlightened society. Having sex with a 15-year-old isn’t predatory in Knepper’s book, it just clashes with the prudish social mores that cramp his style.
Thread #6: An exciting lostpainting sex story
Like all self-interested apologists for sexually deviant behavior, Knepper relies on false and bizarre moral equivalents to make his disturbing case. When he gloated about penetrative sex with a 16-year-old boy (apparently legal in his state), one Gay Teen Forum member observed:
You just seem overly excited at the fact that you fucked someone four years younger than you.
If I were into older guys and got excited that I fucked a thirty-year-old, would you find that creepy?
The absurd contention that sex with an adolescent boy is morally equivalent to sex with a 30-year-old man is cribbed directly from the Youth Liberation Movement, a “front group for a collection of adults with sexual interest in children.” It is not intellectually provocative or cunning; it’s evil.
Thread #7: The Cutest CHILFs
We can’t link to this Gay Teen Forum thread titled “The Cutest CHILFs” because it has been deleted by forum administrators. The likely reason will be clear when you view the following screen capture of two seemingly naked boys embracing. It provides our most visually shocking evidence of Knepper’s predilection for underage boys. We have only altered the screen capture to obscure the faces of what appear to be pre-adolescent boys.
And just a reminder from another post by Knepper that has since been deleted: a CHILF is someone under the age of 18.
Simply failing to condemn a thread about pursuing teenage victims is damning enough. The entire notion that those with pedophilic tendencies are unfairly persecuted by a cold, judgmental world is preposterous and repellent. But Knepper didn’t just contribute to this discussion – he started it:
Seriously. It’s rather annoying to drool over David Archuleta or something — who is 18 but looks cute and boyish — and have someone be like “Ew pedo, he’s like 12,” but someone else my age (19) might be into someone who’s goddamn 40 years old and no one thinks that’s odd.
Here, again, we see evidence of the mental gymnastics required to find an attraction to CHILFs morally equivalent to an attraction to older men. And then Knepper goes one step further, explaining that he doesn’t just find young looking men appealing, he lusts after minors. A forum member asks:
Are your real life friends and acquaintances aware you lust for minors and have a diaper fetish. Actual question.
Lol they are aware of my chilf-lust but not my fetishes.
Three observations here:
1. “Chilf-lust” is not some sort of inborn orientation toward children or adolescents. It is the desire to prey upon the most vulnerable among us.
2. Knepper sees “chilf-lust” as more socially acceptable than a diaper fetish.
3. Knepper’s friends are apparently willing to look the other way when he expresses his desire to exploit minors.
Thread #9: What’s the Main Cause of Pedophilia?
Not only are children sexual objects to Knepper, he thinks child rape is funny. “What’s the Main Cause of Pedophilia?” asks Knepper in another since-deleted post as he sets up for the punchline: “Sexy kids.”
In this thread, Knepper shares nearly half a dozen more child rape jokes:
What’s the best thing about having sex with 28 year olds?
There’s 20 of them.
What’s the best part about having sex in the shower with an eight-year-old girl?
If you slick her hair back, she looks like an eight-year-old boy!
How do you make a three year old cry twice?
Wipe your bloody dick on her teddy bear
What’s black, blue, and hates sex?
The ten year old in my trunk
What’s even better than sex with a nine-year-old?
………………………I don’t know, either.
To knowingly support the man who wrote these things is a moral degeneracy.
It’s time for David Frum to take a stand against Alex Knepper. No tent should have room for this unapologetic promoter of child exploitation.
