Republicans Call on DOJ to Take Action Against Netflix for Sexualizing Children

The left claims they’re standard-bearers of morality.

They argue conservatives are immoral because we don’t like big welfare programs and don’t support abortion.

Yet the left seems to have no issues with sexualizing children.

By now, you’ve probably seen the huge controversy over Netflix’s show calle Cuties.

The show features 11-year old girls in scantily clad outfits, gyrating on stage while adults watch.

It’s truly disgusting.

And as Fox News reports, some Republicans are asking the DOJ to investigate and take action against Netflix:

Lawmakers in Washington, most of them Republicans, called Friday for the Justice Department to take legal action against Netflix for streaming the highly controversial film “Cuties” — claiming the comedy-drama sexualizes young children and “serves as fodder for pedophiles.”

The critics included U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and U.S. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind. — as well as U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii.

“There’s no excuse for the sexualization of children, and Netflix’s decision to promote the film ‘Cuties’ is disgusting at best and a serious crime at worst,” Cotton told the Daily Caller. “I urge the Department of Justice to take action against Netflix for their role in pushing explicit depictions of children into American homes.”

The film, centered on an 11-year-old Senegalese immigrant living in Paris, is the debut work of French director Maïmouna Doucouré. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah last year and earned Doucouré a best directing award.

In the film, the main character, Amy, ends up joining a clique of girls who call themselves the “Cuties” – and perform highly provocative and eroticized dance numbers while scantily clad – as a way of rebelling against her conservative Muslim parents.

Banks told the Daily Caller he was disturbed by the film as a parent.

“As a father of young daughters, I find it sickening. Not only is this movie fodder for pedophiles, it encourages very young girls to defy their parents’ wishes and share pornographic images of themselves with strangers. Our culture has come a long way in recent years, recognizing the power of television, movies and magazines to affect young girls,” he said. “The lessons taught in this film are not ones I want my daughters learning. The DOJ should be readying charges against Netflix for distribution of child pornography.”
