Well folks, what can I tell you about this despicable Harvey Weinstein animal that hasn’t been already told? For a week now, this low-life Weinstein has been at center stage, playing the leading role in a sexual harassment scandal which has gotten more attention than the Las Vegas Massacre and the N.F.L., anthem kneeling story both put together – but, don’t kid yourselves, there is a good reason for it. Other than the story itself it seems that, for once, Hollywood’s safely-guarded Pandora’s Box, once opened has skeletons streaming out in swarming hordes. Ask me and I say: about time, isn’t it?
Anyways, just in case that you, for some strange reason happened to have missed all the hullabaloo, let me try and give you a quick précis of what is going on. First, Harvey Weinstein, besides being an alleged sexual predator, which we now know he is, in addition, he also happens to be an American film producer and former studio director. The Hollywood mogul, together with brother Bob, co-founded Miramax which produced multiple independent films all enjoying great success culminating in the winning of an Academy Award for his production Shakespeare In Love, also garnering seven Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals. Ironically, in 2004, the predator was appointed CBE – an honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the British film industry. As one can imagine, with the successes came an immense amount of wealth to this sick puppy.
The timeline begins on October 5th, in a New York Times article written by Jodi Cantor and Megan Twohey. In the article, Cantor and Twohey re-count how more than a dozen women accused this nauseating character of sexually harassing, assaulting, or raping them. Among them, actress Ashley Judd, who, back two decades ago, while filming Paramount’s “Kiss the Girls” in the 1990s was sexually harassed by Weinstein who kept summoning her to his hotel room under the pretense of talking about roles in his movies, while instead, tried to get Judd to watch him take a shower – and this was only the beginning.
No sooner had the New York Times, found its way to becoming a massive scandal, there was a second article published in the New Yorker of October 10th, based on Ronan Farrow’s 10-month investigation into Harvey Weinstein. This one was, in fact, far more devastating than the one before. The New Yorker’s story began with an allegation by Italian actress-director Asia Argento that some 20 years ago, Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her. Argento was one of three women who told Farrow that Weinstein had raped them. In the article, Farrow alludes to 16 former and current executives and assistants at Weinstein companies who witnessed unwanted sexual advances and touching.
The New Yorker expose takes-on what appears to be a commonalty of unsavory harassment complaints all of which outright border on potential criminal sexual assault territory. The article blueprints an accepted Hollywood culture that enshrines sick moguls such as this Weinstein to continue their philandering abuses, while they go on literally undisturbed. Anyways, as it turned out, since the publishing of both articles from The New York Times and The New Yorker, there appears to have been an avalanche of Hollywood insiders, coming out of their closets, literally to let the world know that just about everyone in Tinsel Town knew about what was going on with this predator yet chose to turn their heads the other way – albeit just chose to condone the predation of this sick SOB.
Now, I got to tell you something folks, before I even go on with this narrative, I can’t help but fall into a profiling mode of sorts and, as much as I know I should avoid the practice, I just can’t help but look at this individual and outright feel a total sense of repulsiveness for the man just by looking at him. Moreover, I can tell you I have come across and seen [his] type a few times throughout my life. These sick-puppies, suffer from the same “disease”; one commonly known as: “rejection” by the opposite sex [women]. More likely than not, individuals in this cadre have not been blessed with any likable attributes by females other than money. Matter of fact, money, to these sickies becomes the ultimate tool for getting even – the ultimate tool for coping with their boundless insecurities.
I hate to even venture into the world of psychoanalytical interpretations, a world that is reservedly foreign to my resume, but if I dared give a profile of these nauseous Weinstein types, I say they could all, probably, be branded together under the Misogynist umbrella. I honestly think these guys, deep down, just hate women. As far as I am concerned, men like this Weinstein, feel hatred, contempt for, or prejudice against women. They are male-chauvinist pigs, to where the subjugations, bullying, overpowering or otherwise false sense of supremacy over women, are in fact, a sick means of sexual stimulation. Then again, I must admit, my speculative perceptions are entirely beyond the realm of any professional training whatsoever – common sense, yes.
With that off my chest, I can now go back and give you my two bits on the bounteous number of comments that come to mind with this scandal. At the very top of my list, ranking number one in rejoice is the fact that, at the heart of the scandal is one of them – one of them Hollywood’s insiders. Hollywood – that closely-knit, almighty and righteous community which makes sure to remind everyone else, day in and day out, how above and different they think they are from the rest of us commoners. Hollywood – a community, whose wealth and virtuosity, simply makes them superior to the rest of us in every sense. Hollywood- the U.S.’s greatest convergence of Marxist liberals; Hollywood, the home of the Michael Moores, the Sean Penns, the Jane Fondas, the Robert Di Niros and the zillions of other textbook communists whose love for equality of the classes, sojourns at their very own city limits.
For years now, I just quit watching the infamous Oscars Academy Awards ceremony. There came a point in time when, instead of enjoying the presentation of the Academy honoring the merits of the arts of cinematography, I was really viewing a Marxist rally, whereby all winners felt commissioned to give a speech on behalf of the cause. Not to mention the senseless and depressive jokes thrust upon the audience by masters of ceremony, prudently handpicked to, also, prod all sorts of hateful tirades against the Conservative Right of the nation – all the while as a predominantly Marxist / Communist audience, riddled the milieu with unstoppable applauses to the vitriolic messages spurred by the award recipients and their masterful hosts.
My next comment is directed to Weinstein victims: What took them so long to come out and tell the world about this animal? Most victims in this Weinstein story seem to agree as to the fact that it served them better to lay low and keep their mouths shut as otherwise their aspiring careers could have been trampled by Weinstein’s powerful outreach. My only comment to this type of behavior is all you did by choosing to remain silent was to perpetuate Weinstein’s abhorrent behavior. Wonder how many women would have been spared the attacks by this animal had you come out and done what was right.
As I understand it, there were many of Weinstein’s victims that ended up doing out-of-court settlements – a practice which became habitual and part of Weinstein predictable ritual. As much as I can relate to all the victims mitigating circumstances as much as I censure their silence as a share of the blame for the man’s self-perpetuating sex crimes throughout decades. Ditto for the collective silence of the entire Hollywood community, as doing so, merely served to prolong the filthy predation by the animal, regretfully to the point where to the Hollywood community, Weinstein’s alleged acts, incredibly so, were repulsively tolerable, maybe even tenable – disgusting to say the least.
So, as usual in most of my dissertations, I have saved the best for last. I refer to Weinstein’s saga as it related to politics. Amidst all the mayhem surrounding this story, there had to be some part of it associated to, who else but Mrs. Scandal herself. For some reason, anytime we have the words scandal and politics surface in a story, invariably, the “Clinton” name just happens to pop-up somewhere along the line. Well, the Weinstein saga is no exception to this truism. For the record, Harvey Weinstein has been one of the Democratic Party’s most prolific donors throughout the years. Since the 2000 election cycle, Weinstein has donated nearly $1 million dollars in his own name, in addition to roughly $1.5 million as part of “bundled” donations to top democrats including former president Barack Obama and 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. What else is new? Leopards never change their spots, do they?
In a recent interview on the Andrew Marr Show, the all-time hypocrite Clinton, said: “she was shocked and appalled by the revelations of the Hollywood mogul and Democrat donor”. Ironically, the public opinion queen of manipulation, once again, dared commend the women who came forward and told their stories in the Weinstein saga, while in her recently published book, Clinton demonizes the three women brought by the Trump campaign to the presidential TV debates who had alleged sexual assaults by husband and Weinstein’s fellow-predator, Bill Clinton.
In closing, I am inclined to dismiss this entire saga as nothing less than what it is: a circus of hypocrisy and double standards. A verminous web of lies, falsehoods, deceptions, or otherwise sickening revelations of what money can do to prostitute people at times when we choose to sell our souls to the devil over everything else. As to what the future holds for a Hollywood clean up. I’ll dare say probably, not much, if anything at all. Just look back at what happened with the earlier version of Harvey Weinstein, film director, producer, writer and actor Roman Polanski, who, in 1977, was arrested and charged with raping a 13-year old girl named Samantha Geimer. He subsequently pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape but was released from prison after serving only 42 days, and as part of an apparent plea bargain, put him on probation. When he learned that the judge had changed his mind and planned to reject the plea bargain, he fled to Paris before sentencing.
Notwithstanding Polanski’s admitted rape of a 13-year old, in 2002, he was awarded with three Academy Awards, including Best Director for his picture The Pianist – a WWII true story about a Jewish-Polish musician. Because Polanski would have been arrested in the United States, he did not attend the Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood. After the announcement of the Best Director Award, however, Polanski received a standing ovation from most of those present in the theater. In other words, Hollywood’s corrupted culture of hypocrisy had no problems in honoring and giving this pedophile rapist a standing ovation.
In closing, for years now, we have all had to endure, Hollywood’s liberal elite indulging in pious crusades for women’s rights, feminism and equality of the sexes. We have had to endure, Hollywood’s diehard democrats’ rants on the Conservative Right presumed exploitation and subjugation of women, while all along their own Harvey Weinstein was a predator on the very same women they championed. Based on the Polanski’s bigotry, I ask, what makes you believe that nothing will ever change in Tinsel Town. As far as I am concerned, this Weinstein animal should be sent to the can for life and let him rot in jail and have a taste of his own medicine by his fellow-inmates. That will set his mind straight I think.
Last, I would not be surprised at all to see this animal walk-out of this whole thing untouched by the law. Matter of fact, I think, when all the dust settles down, this clown eventually will come back and once again will be welcomed, greeted and hailed by the very same hypocritical crowd which today demeans him strictly for their own sake and personal interests. Watch as in a few years from now, Harvey Weinstein, alleged rapist, the predator, is, once again, honored by the Academy, maybe even for a story on his own dirty life. My last thought on this whole Weinstein affair is directed to the British Empire: I just wonder if Weinstein will remain as an honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition for his contributions to a world of sexual predation. What do you think?
