VC Bro Eric Weinstein Demands We Solve Epstein Case by Father’s Day

analysis

Most fathers, aware of their children’s limitations, ask for fairly simple Father’s Day gifts. A hand-drawn card, a sleeve of monogrammed golf balls, maybe socks.

And aside from mowing the lawn and grilling, don’t expect to be given too difficult a task on their special Sunday.

But venture capitalist and CEO of Thiel Capital, Eric Weinstein, apparently doesn’t think so. No, on this Father’s Day, which was yesterday, he called for the Jeffrey Epstein case to be resolved. This is Silicon Valley’s 10x mentality at work.

In a series of tweets, Weinstein urged fathers with daughters to band together and pressure media organizations to answer any question about Epstein. Epstein, for those who don’t remember, ran an infamous pedophile ring that ensnared the most famous people in government, industry and entertainment, only to commit suicide after his arrest.

“A wish for Father’s Day,” he wrote at 8pm CT, which didn’t leave much time for #girldads to get to the bottom of the biggest modern mystery in American society. “That every father and daughter asks a simple question: why don’t our news organizations ask if Jeffrey Epstein was a state-sponsored intelligence agent of one or more nations whose trade in young children was protected as ‘sources and methods’?”

While as a father you may have believed you could sit back and watch the end of the US Open, it behooves you instead to lobby media organizations – which, it should be noted, were the ones breaking up the Epstein case – to continue covering it .

“There is something just too awful to imagine: that no leading news organization will investigate whether any nation’s intelligence agency would be allowed to allow a subsidiary to trade in little girls. I see 0 evidence Epstein managed a hedge fund,” he wrote in one thread.

And because Weinstein says the media won’t be covering it, it’s about time the nation’s fathers forced the issue.

“We fathers could at least stand together against any nation’s intelligence agencies that traffic in children. If we can’t, I don’t know why Dad is so important. And I believe in Dad’s cause. Many Thanks.”

While Weinstein appears to be rhetorically addressing his question, some had fun reading it verbatim, as if the question was meant to be asked specifically of their daughters.

Weinstein went on to mention that he was drinking while correcting a typo in his thread, but it’s unclear if he blamed the wine for just his typo or for the thread as a whole.

Either way, Dads, it’s time for you guys to go get Epstein. You have 364 days until next Father’s Day.
