(Natural News) A grand jury in eastern Texas’ Tyler County has indicted Netflix for its “promotion of lewd visual material depicting a child” in the controversial film Cuties.
The indictment states that Netflix knowingly promoted “visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age.”
This depiction, the indictment goes on to clarify, “appears to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”
As we reported, Netflix has been promoting various forms of child pornography and pedophilia for years, which drove many of its decent and sensible patrons to cancel their subscriptions in protest.
Back in September, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) chastised Netflix for streaming Cuties, noting that the film “routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing, including at least one scene with partial child nudity.”
At the time, Cruz called for a criminal investigation into the film, describing it as “pornographic.”
“These scenes in and of themselves are harmful,” he further added.
“And it is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways.”
While the First Amendment to the Constitution does provide “vigorous protection for artistic expression,” Cruz made sure to note, it does not provide license for “individuals or for-profit corporations to produce or distribute child pornography.”
Far-left media defends “Cuties,” calls it “bold” and “misunderstood”
Released on Sept. 9, Cuties immediately drew ire from those with a moral backbone, as it stars an 11-year-old child who follows an adult dance troupe, engaging in “twerking” and other questionable behavior along the way.
Because of growing awareness and concern about child sex trafficking and pedophilia, Cuties rightfully fell into the crosshairs of the culture wars, exposing the pedophilic bent of Netflix, which a few years back partnered financially and directionally with the Obamas.
Controversy surrounding the film reached a crescendo when the grand jury in Tyler decided to pursue a criminal case against Netflix, issuing an indictment that has not yet received a court date.
Amazingly – or perhaps not – the left-wing media is standing in defense of Cuties, accusing its critics of “misunderstanding” the film.
Peter Bradshaw, writing for The Guardian, went so far as to brandish critics of Cuties as “vicious trolls” and “mischief-makers” who simply cannot appreciate the type of entertainment that he apparently enjoys watching.
The end of the film apparently counters what Bradshaw describes as the “pornification of girls and young women by social media and society in general,” which provides a “false promise of liberation” through sexual displays.
If this is correct, then perhaps Bradshaw is right about Cuties. The problem lies in what even he admits are “offending scenes” in the film that are “gruesomely unwatchable,” and “deliberately so.”
One could make the case that such scenes are intended to further deter viewers against the objectification and sexualization of young children. On the other hand, why show them at all if the point is to condemn such activity?
“The film doesn’t entirely work,” Bradshaw admits, but not necessarily for the right reasons. He claims the film was presented in “good faith,” and its message “clear enough” for viewers. And he actually had the gall to say it and Netflix are demonstrating “more good faith than Twitter and its pitchfork mob.”
