On September 5, the L.A. Times reported “A former USC professor once on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted fugitives list pleaded guilty Friday to flying to the Philippines and sexually assaulting underage boys he groomed online. Walter Lee Williams, 65, admitted engaging in illegal sexual contact with minors in foreign places, entering the plea during a brief appearance before U.S. District Judge Phillip Gutierrez.
As part of a plea, federal prosecutors agreed to recommend that the onetime eminent professor of gender and sexuality studies serve no more than five years in a federal prison. He also would be subject to 10 years supervision upon release and must pay $25,000 in restitution to his seven victims. Williams will be sentenced Dec. 15….
Williams taught anthropology, gender studies, and history at the University of Southern California for about two decades until he quit in 2011. Under the guise of academic research on sexuality in the Southeast Asia/Pacific region, he repeatedly traveled to the area.
Federal prosecutors alleged that the author and Fulbright award winner used those trips to sexually assault underage boys. Investigators believe he has at least 10 victims across Southeast Asia, aged 9 to 17.
Williams engaged in webcam sex sessions with two boys, aged 13 and 14, in the Philippines in 2010. The next year, he traveled to the country and sexually assaulted both boys and a 15-year-old boy, according to the plea agreement. He was 62 at the time.”
The Times also reported: “An attorney for USC last year provided the FBI with materials the professor donated to the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives that contained “lascivious visual depictions of minors,” according to the plea agreement. FBI agents also obtained similar images from Williams’ former home.
The mainstream media description of Williams as a teacher of “anthropology, gender studies and history at USC” is true as far as it goes, but it neglects to mention Williams’ greatest pre-arrest claims to fame. The homosexualist media was more informative.
Following his June 19, 2013 arrest, the Lambda Literary webpage covered the story. They reported: “Williams’ bio in (his book) Spirit of the Pacific states that Williams founded ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, which is ‘the world’s largest collection of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender materials.’ The bio also states that Williams is the co-founder and chair of the Committee on Lesbian and Gay History for the American Historical Association and that he is an officer of the Society of Lesbian and Gay Anthropologists.”
On June 26, 2013 the publication Out In Jersey also covered the story. They reported: “There are some who think he was a great teacher and was among the most important intellectual forces in the movement to liberate and normalize the LGBT community. There are also plenty – perhaps even more – that hate the man
“…. His numerous books on aspects of homosexuality and over 130 articles published as a tenured professor of anthropology at University of Southern California have been widely regarded as among the most important contributions to gay scholarship. He is often credited with creating USC’s enormous archive of LGBT history.”
Williams swells the ranks of other LGBT heroes with a taste for underage boys and children:
– Harvey Milk, who at age 34 had a ‘relationship’ with 16 year-old Jack McKinley.
– Harry Hay, the ‘grand old man’ of the gay rights movement, who said in 1983: “[I]f the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”
– Mark Newton and Peter Truong, who were lionized in 2010 as poster boys for same-sex ‘marriage’ and adoption by ABC Australia in the article “Two dads are better than one.” ABC Australia ‘disappeared’ the story when Newton and Truong were arrested in 2011. Following their arrests it was revealed that the two men had paid a Russian woman $8,000 for her newborn boy. According to some reports, within two weeks of the boy’s birth the ‘dads’ started molesting him. Other reports say the molestation began at 22 months. The two dads then shopped the boy around the world, allowing him to be abused by at least eight men in a number of countries—in what was called the Boy Lovers network.
Newton and Truong were ‘gay rights’ activists. In 1999, Newton, then a student at Cal State Long Beach, had written an article promoting same-sex marriage. He quoted Truong “I believe in God, I just don’t believe the church is correctly representing him. I think they’re using God as an excuse for their own intolerance and hatred.” On July 1, 2013 the Australian reported “After the child was taken from the two men in the US in 2011 they claimed they were being victimised for being homosexual.”
–San Francisco gay rights icon Larry Brinkin, who served for 21 years on San Francisco’s Human Rights Commission, and who was arrested in 2012 for possession of child pornography, including photos which “…shows a child about 2 to 3 years old being sexually abused, according to the search warrant. Another shows an adult male attempting to receive oral sex from a small child.”
Brinkin’s retirement party was attended by then-Mayor (now Lieutenant Governor) Gavin Newsom, State Senator Mark Leno, State Senator Tom Ammiano, and he was lauded by SF Supervisor David Campos, declared an “LGBT Hero” by PBS, and honored by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Both Hay and Brinkin have served as grand marshalls of San Francisco’s Gay Pride Parade. Milk was a featured speaker at the 1978 parade.
