Well, well. I know there’s more important things to talk about – the sketchiness of the Las Vegas shooting (so many things just don’t add up), hurricanes, fires, the NFL bullshit (I’ve already touched on that here, a few months ago). I agree that those things are important, but we can talk about more than one thing. Right now, I want to talk about this.
My motives are not entirely pure. I’ve been fed up with liberal bias in Hollywood for a really long time. I’m following this story with great interest because of the schadenfreude.
You know what I’m talking about. Harvey Weinstein, former head of The Weinstein Company, a movie distribution outfit. Produced lots of movies – a great deal of them critically acclaimed award-winners – and donated shitloads of cash to Democratic causes and candidates, including both Obama and the Clintons. Turns out the guy is like Bill Clinton 2.0, and is guilty of the same things, sexual harassment and actual rape, of all things. Oh, and paying his victims to remain silent. That too.
This is just rich. Absolutely rich coming from an industry that still, to this day, paints all Catholics as pedophiles or at least pedophile apologists no thanks to the church’s coverup of child abuse. Absolutely rich coming from an industry chock-full of people losing their ever-loving minds over Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comments.
About that for a brief moment. If you actually listened to the tape in question, all he really did was admit to trying to kiss women, or at least wanting to kiss women all over. So? Lots of men do. As for the pussy-grabbing bit, he was merely making an observation about the entertainment industry and the upper echelons of power. Trashy, desperate social-climbing skanks generally will let you grab them by the pussy and whatever else as long as they can get ahead in life. Trump apologized for those remarks. A few accusations were made after the tape went public, but so far, none of them have stuck, obviously, and there’s no other evidence that Trump sexually harassed anyone. So no, Trump is not a sexual predator and to say so at this time is libel. Don’t fucking say that if all you have as proof is the “grab them by the pussy” comments. That isn’t proof.
So here we are. This scandal just keeps getting worse. A-list actors have taken their sweet time in getting around to denouncing the man that some of them considered God. Okay, only Meryl Streep called him God. Judi Dench just got a (temporary) tattoo of his name on her decrepit ass. Journalists and other actresses are coming out of the woodworks to say “I saw this” and “he did this to me” and so on. He’s already been fired from The Weinstein Company (his younger brother Bob is still with the company; even so, they’re thinking of changing the name).
It just goes to show how utterly hypocritical these people really are. They just love it when some Christian and/or conservative screws up. They all had orgasms of indignation and outrage back in the ’80s when televangelists like Jim Bakker got caught with their pants down. These…ugh, trying to keep the potty mouth at bay….but these cretins just loved that shit. Absolutely freaking loved it. And, of course, fast-forwarding a decade or two, the toe-tapping senator, the governor that ran off with his foreign mistress, etc. Oh, and let’s not forget the more recent scandals involving the late Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly, who isn’t, for the trillionth time, a Conservative or Republican. But he’s not a progressive leftist either, so the left loved going after him anyway. The left just loved this. Alinksy’s Rule for Radicals: make the enemy live up to their own standards. Paraphrased, but you get the idea. They do this so very well.
We can do the same thing, but let’s face it. Most of the Republicans in power are total cucks. They don’t want to play hardball because it might make them look mean and undignified. By all means, the Republicans should be running on the hypocrisy of the left. This should be mentioned by every Republican next year. The left has no right to judge us when all of these whores have known about this guy’s behavior and did NOTHING for twenty-something years. They have no moral authority.
As I have been writing this, two more A-list actresses – Angelina Jolie (who had a bad encounter with him and not only vowed to never work with him again, but warned others about him) and Gwyneth Paltrow (who was asked for a massage, turned it down and told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about it, who confronted Weinstein, who then told Paltrow to keep quiet about it) – have come forward. How many more has this guy victimized? Probably loads more. He’s like Bill Cosby, in my opinion. I think the both of them are absolutely guilty, and they’ve both probably got a trail of victims that is probably miles long.
So I wonder, how many actresses and actors do sick shit to make it in the entertainment industry? How many musicians have done this kind of shit to get a record deal? Thank God for the Internet. Truly, because you can make movies and music and distribute both without bothering with the studios or record labels. People won’t have to whore themselves out for fame. At least, in the future. Right now, the record labels and film studios still hold a lot of power and influence. I hope that will change. It’s already changed publishing, which is why I’m even going to be published in the first place. I plan on self-publishing my novel because, while it’s very timely, I am still a vicious thought criminal, and therefore no book deal for me. Just saying. Of course, some lefty dill weed will be all, “like, your writing sucks so you wouldn’t get a book deal anyway, lol.”
Uh, that’s bullshit. Explain how the fuck a stupid hack like E.L. James can become a best-selling author after changing the names of her crappy Twilight fan fiction and publishing that as an actual book? Yeah, Fifty Shades of Grey is nothing more than Twilight fiction with the names changed. E.L. James is living proof that you don’t need talent or skill to get a publishing deal.
Back to the topic at hand. I wonder…all this silly anti-Trump vitriol and vicious feminist grandstanding…I wonder if it’s their way of sticking it to the men that have victimized them. I am sure that Harvey Weinstein is far from the only Hollywood big-shot doing this kind of stuff. He was just careless and sloppy and finally got caught when someone else in Hollywood felt he was expendable. I mean, someone at the New York Times had this story ready to go in 2004, but Weinstein got it shelved. So what happened since then? Who knows. But these women can’t just outright say, “so-and-so is a nasty pervert who forced me to do degrading things for film roles. Fight misogynist assholes like him by voting Democrat!” or else they’d have said it ages ago. They can’t call these people out by name or they’d be ruined. So they project that onto Republicans. At least, that’s my theory.
So next time you see some starlet in a magazine, you’ll probably wonder what sort of sick shit she did for fame. And you won’t feel compelled to worship her or envy her anymore. She’s just a bag of meat to the men that gave her that fame in the first place. She might look good, she might have all the money in the world and a hot boyfriend, but she’ll always be subservient to some of the sickest beings on the planet. That’s the price one has to pay for being in that industry, and that’s a price a lot of women are unwilling to pay.
So no, I’m not jealous of them. Not anymore. I don’t have to perform sexual favors to pay my bills, and I am very, very grateful for that.
