(Natural News) Until 2018, Columbia University student Joel Davis was a contributor to HuffPost and something of a celebrity for the outfit he founded called “Youth to End Sexual Violence.”
(Article by R. Cort Kirkwood republished from TheNewAmerican.com)
oNow the leftist ex-Ivy-Leaguer is nothing more than a convict. Earlier this week, a federal judge sentenced him to 13 years in prison for child molestation and possessing and distributing child porn.
The original indictment suggests that Davis, 24, likely molested many children. He was caught because he sent child porn to, and solicited child sex from, two undercover FBI agents posing as adults offering children to perverts.
A big supporter of Hillary Clinton, Davis possessed almost 4,000 images and more than 300 videos.
“Joel Davis, founder of a non-profit called ‘Youth to End Sexual Violence,’ admitted to engaging in the very abhorrent behavior he had publicly pledged to fight… Davis will now serve a lengthy time in federal prison, where he can no longer victimize minors.” – USA Strauss https://t.co/d9O6x0nbmX

FBI agents collared Davis in 2018 after he tried to arrange a child rape.
Most of the details in the original indictment are too repellant to repeat, although a few that can are enough to show that Davis — a homosexual — might well have been a major sex criminal.
Davis, a contributor to the leftist HuffPost, told one undercover agent that he was an interested in sex with children “0+,” the indictment says. He also told the agent that he tried to rape a seven-year-old boy but “I couldn’t get it in and he was struggling too much,” and he confessed that he molested a three-year-old girl.
He also sought access to what he believed was the undercover agent’s nine-year-old daughter and the two-year-old daughter of what he believed was the agent’s girlfriend.
The indictment also says Davis admitted that he met a boy on a homosexual hook-up website and molested him.
“DAVIS told the undercover officers that he was sexually interested in children of all ages,” the Justice Department disclosed when agents arrested him:
DAVIS sent the undercover officers sexually explicit photographs of infants and toddlers, including photographs in which the infants and toddlers were engaged in sexual activity with adults. During the course of text conversations with one of the undercover officers, DAVIS described explicit sexual activity that he intended to engage in with the purported nine-year-old daughter of the undercover officer and with the purported two-year-old daughter of the undercover officer’s girlfriend. DAVIS also repeatedly asked that undercover officer to take naked and sexually explicit pictures and videos of his purported daughter and his purported girlfriend’s toddler daughter and to send the pictures and videos to DAVIS.
The charges to which Davis pleaded guilty in January are these:
DAVIS used a cellphone to arrange a meeting to engage in sexual activity with a 15-year-old boy and in fact met with the 15-year-old boy and engaged in illegal sexual activity. In addition, between at least in or about May 2018 and June 2018, DAVIS possessed images and videos of child pornography, including images of prepubescent minors who were not yet 12 years old, and received and distributed material containing child pornography using a cellphone.
[He] pled guilty to one count of enticement of a minor under the age of 18 to engage in sexual activity, which carries a mandatory minimum term of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison; one count of possession of child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum term of five years in prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison; and one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography, which carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years in prison.
The department said Davis “possessed more than 3,700 images and more than 330 videos of child pornography, including numerous images of prepubescent minors who had not attained 12 years of age, and received and distributed material containing child pornography using a cellphone.”
Pals With Antifa?
Mike Cernovich claims that Davis helped organize a protest at which Antifa tried to shut down a speech the conservative commentator gave at Columbia.
In 2017 I was invited to speak at Columbia University.
ANTIFA showed up as part of a protest organized by student Joel Davis.
In 2021 Joel Davis was sentenced to prison for 13 for attempting to r-pe a newborn baby.
These are the kind of people who attack me.

A Google search did not return a connection between Davis and the protest, but he did write a piece for the Columbia Spectator in which he argued that conservatives on campus must not be allowed to speak freely, without protest.
Progress can be lost if ideologues gain greater exposure and poison political dialogues, and hosting regular events for them is the equivalent of introducing their ideologies into the mainstream….
When we ask our students to maintain the balance between peace and order, we mustn’t forget that racists and firebrands are not permanently invested in either.
In the long run, students need protection from the abuses which led them to protest in the first place. It is no accident that Islamophobia and reports of hate crimes are on the rise. Maligning protesters though seems perilously close to converting the Rules of University Conduct into a suicide pact, transforming Columbia from a place of intellectual diversity into a scene of discrimination for the sake of order.
The Clinton supporter claimed to be a survivor of sexual abuse.
Yes Joel Davis was a Hillary supporter. https://t.co/SQVOpgz6o4 pic.twitter.com/wsHLV7t5FU
