Hollywood is a sleazy place. The powerful abuse the innocent. The elite manipulate and use starry-eyed fools, looking for fame and fortune. We all know it, but too often, the bright lights and glitz blind us to the degeneracy that runs through the entertainment industry’s veins. It is good to have a periodic reminder of the seedy reality that really exists behind the glamourous façade.
Enter Harvey Weinstein as today’s reminder. The major Hollywood producer and powerbroker is facing multiple charges of allegedly sexually harassing female employees and actresses over the course of several decades. This professional degenerate and hypocrite enjoyed abusing his power at a room inside the posh Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel. He would often invite actresses up to meet him there to “discuss” their careers.
Apparently, the incidents were myriad, including:
- He asked Ashley Judd to massage him and watch him shower in 1997. Ewww!
- He was forced to pay Rose McGowan a $100,000 settlement for an unknown incident, just after her big break in the movie “Scream”.
- He paid out another settlement to Italian model Ambra Battilana in 2015 after she accused him of groping her and reaching in her skirt.
- He evidently has paid out AT LEAST eight settlements for sexual harassment over the last 30 years.
Perhaps even worse than this, he liked to strip naked and forced his female employees to massage him. Needless to say, the intimidation of refusing the boss was obvious. No one needs to spell out the consequences of rebuffing someone as powerful and rich as Weinstein. “You’ll never work in this town again!” is not just a line from a movie.
This is typical activity from Hollywood elites, who run around screaming about “rape culture” and how men need to be feminists. They are lying hypocrites, who get away with their deviancy, because of their position and left-wing political beliefs. Being pro-choice and a “male feminist” mean carte blanche to be the worst womanizing scum of the earth imaginable.
There is no way that his behavior wasn’t well-known. It was too frequent and for too long a time to be some great secret. Only now that Weinstein’s actions have become publicized is anyone outraged. But Weinstein is a major Democrat donor and fundraiser, so don’t expect the publicity or outrage to last very long.
In response to the MANY allegations, Ol’ Harvey has released a statement, and it is AMAZING! You ain’t never seen deflection and obfuscation like this before – well, not since the last national Democrat politician gave a campaign speech.
I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then.
I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office – or out of it. To anyone.
Say what?! This was on-going behavior for the last 30 years. This wasn’t back in the Summer of Love. None of these allegations happened at Woodstock. He paid out a settlement to Ambra Battilana only TWO years ago!
But that’s not all. It gets better… soooo much better. For you see, this is not the time to self-reflect and admit one’s failings. No! That would be the mature, responsible thing to do. Instead, it’s time to go after the people really responsible for this terrible behavior. Because Weinstein’s serial sexual harassing is all the fault of… the NRA. Yes, he’s full of anger and is going after Wayne LaPierre and the National Rifle Association.
I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. I’m going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. I’m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party.
I have to admit one thing – Weinstein knows how to work the system. He realizes that the fastest way to win back the affection of the Hollywood elites is to spew radical left-wing talking points and attack conservatives. He’s a consummate manipulator and charlatan till the end. That’s why he’s survived and thrived in Hollywood for so long.
