Examining McMartin Preschool Satanic Panic vs Witch Hunt Narrative

Easily the most controversial section in my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia will be the chapter on the “Satanic Panic.” Regardless of whether or not “satanic ritual abuse” was an element in many of the cases later ruled to be the result of “moral panic” and hysteria or not, I believe the child victims were not making up all their stories at the behest of overzealous therapists and a coalition of feminists and fundamentalist Christians as many assert.

Time to “dig” into the stories of the tunnels and other details that are often left out by popular debunkers of the Satanic Panic era child abuse scandals. The McMartin Preschool case helped kick off the “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s. Many claimed based on this case there was a massive witchhunt and moral panic responsible for claims of a “child abuse epidemic.”

Thanks to some CIA connected scientists, parents accused by their children of abuse and at least one proud pedophile activist, the False Memory Syndrome Foundation was able to hand wave away McMartin with the claim of “false memories” implanted in the children. This pattern continued and hundreds of cases were affected by the “expert testimony” of these MK-Ultra doctors, alleged child molesters and pedophiles like Dr. Ralph Underwager. In this video I do my best to debunk the debunkers, especially Debbie Nathan and the New York Times’ Retro Report mini-documentary on the subject. I point out many of the inconsistencies constantly brought up by those debunking the “witchhunt” and we do a little digging into the strange story of the McMartin tunnels.

Stay tuned, I will be doing some more work related to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation based on the notes I’m putting together for a future book on the subject.
