Like Glenn Beck and company… I hate Harvey Weinstein… detest him. But his conviction in New York just made it dangerous to date women. Period. Rape has been redefined (more than usual). He could have been convicted… on a better case[s]… but the jury wanted to make a statement. Not a legal decision. A good article I read (with a quote/idea I love):
“Rotunno wants women to ‘take on the risk of making different choices'” (INSIDER)
Tuesday I wrote about actress Reese Witherspoon who told a “Women in Hollywood” event held in Beverly Hills that she had been sexually assaulted several times in her career, starting at age sixteen. Actress Jessica Chastain was at the same event and she offered her own take on the scandal, suggesting that Hollywood was full of complete and utter hypocrites. From the Hollywood Reporter:
“This is an industry rife with racism, sexism and homophobia,” she said, speaking to a room full of women including Laura Dern, Riley Keough and Aaron Sorkin. “It is so closely woven into the fabric of the business that we have become snowblind to the glaring injustices happening every day.”
She continued, “Oh we’re very quick to point the finger at others and address the issue with social action and fundraising. Yet there is a clear disconnect between how we practice what we preach in our industry.”…
…“We rally against the presidential candidate who slants a narrative of his sexual assault as mere locker room talk, but at the same time we ignore the stories and warnings of sexual predators in our offices.”
Here is some more info regarding Elijah Woods comment via The Blaze:
In an interview Wednesday with The Hollywood Reporter, former child actor Corey Feldman opened up about abuse he says suffered as a child and revealed that one of his alleged abusers is “still prominently in the business today.”
“We’ve run into each other many times but no, I’ve never confronted him,” Feldman said.
Feldman’s interview followed recent remarks by actor Elijah Wood that “there are a lot of vipers” in the film industry who prey on children…..
….Enough with the innuendos, Gawker. We want hard evidence! And by “hard evidence,” we mean, a cleverly worded hint:
Though nearly everyone we talked to affirmed that Singer is careful about the ages of boys he sleeps with, it’s not hard for, say, a 17-year-old to get his attention.
Oh, “nearly everyone” says Singer is “careful” not to sodomize 17-year-olds? This would seem to suggest Gawker has a source or two who aren’t entirely sure if Singer is “careful” about avoiding jailbait boys. There is also this obvious clue:
…with interview of Michael Egan’ lawyer, as well as a small Harvey Levin (of TMZ) on Kevin and Bean (KROQ). I will include as well some info via Comic Book Movie’s (CBM) post. There is some additional information and a TMZ video at CBM’s post (click over to view it if you wish), after all is said and done, CBM says this:
The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Egan filed a lawsuit in 2000 over alleged sexual abuse at the site of a 1999 party, naming various defendants but not director Bryan Singer. As a result, Singer’s attorney responded with, “If Bryan had done anything wrong, he would have been included in the previous lawsuit.” A fair point, but Egan’s own attorney claims that Egan did name the X-Men director at the time. This sort of back and fore arguing is to be expected, so it’s now a case of waiting and seeing. Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Singer has dropped out of a scheduled appearance at this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, with writer Simon Kinberg now taking his place.
American Spectator dissects this support by a left-leaning pedophile as well as the connections between the homosexual predation on young men:
Allegations that a film director raped a teenage boy could impact fundraising for Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, whose close ties to Hollywood’s gay community are potentially implicated in the scandal.
Bryan Singer, the openly gay director best known for the X-Men series of action films, has been accused in a lawsuit filed by a 31-year-old man who says he was 17 when Singer forcibly sodomized him in 1999. The plaintiff in that lawsuit, former model and actor Michael F. Egan III, describes attending Hollywood parties that “were typically sordid and featured sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys who were present for the parties.” According to the lawsuit, Singer attended the gay sex parties at the estate of Marc Collins-Rector, an entertainment entrepreneur who subsequently pleaded guilty to multiple crimes involving underage boys, and is now a registered sex offender.
“Since 2006 Bryan Singer has contributed at least $87,620 to Democratic candidates and committees,” the Daily Caller reported. “In 2006 and 2007 Singer contributed a combined total of $6,500 to Hillary Clinton’s campaigns, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ Open Secrets. In 2011 and 2012 Singer contributed a combined $61,600 to the Democratic National Committee.”
It was at Emmerich’s estate in June 2007 that Hillary Clinton attended an “LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) fundraiser event” for her Democrat presidential campaign. A description of the event: “The Senator first greeted the VIP guests in the upper section of the estate and then moved on to the pool area to address the approximately 250 supporters who have gathered to meet the former First Lady. Hillary Clinton’s main topic that night was the discrimination of gays and lesbians and their (mostly lost) rights, which she is fighting to restore.” That account described Emmerich’s estate: “The lush gardens and the unique building made a perfect backdrop for the presidential candidate and the many guests seemed to enjoy the privilege of setting foot on this private property.”
To which I go back to LC when he asks: “Will they give that money back, or at least donate it groups that help children victimized by liberal pedophiles?”
Red Dirt brings us back to an older story already mentioned in Larry Elder’s discussion with Paul Peterson (at top), but should be a stark reminder of how people process this — say — compared to allegations of pedophile priests:
OKLAHOMA CITY – Former child actor Corey Feldman apparently wasn’t kidding when he told ABC’s Nightline back in August that Hollywood is a “den of molesting pedophiles.”
Said Feldman: “I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry.”
Telling the interviewer that “it’s done under the radar” and that “it’s the big secret,” he says he and Haim were molested and that with Haim specifically, he was molested by a “Hollywood mogul” whom he cannot name. And when Feldman says that the mogul molester is most likely watching the interview, the Nightline guy blandly replies, very Spock-like, “Hmm. Intriguing.”
“And it’s widespread?” asks the Nightline interviewer, regarding Hollywood pedophilia.
Feldman’s eyes widen, and he replies, “Oh yeah, I was surrounded by them when I was 14-years old. Surrounded.”
To think of what Feldman and his late friend and child-actor buddy Corey Haim went through in their earlier years … it’s disgusting.
And yet after the Nightline report was aired, little was said in the broader entertainment media about Feldman’s whistleblowing. It would seem as though it’s the dirty secret in the entertainment world no one wants to talk about. It sounds a lot like the dirty secret no one wants to talk about in the sports entertainment world as the sickening bilge coming out of Penn State and Syracuse university’s sports programs flows out in a skuzzy way no one can no longer ignore, often thanks to alternative media. It would almost lead one to believe that pedophiles are well-established in sports and Hollywood.In fact, I think it goes without saying, as Corey Feldman and others have revealed.
And now we learn, via today’s edition of the Los Angeles Times, that a “Hollywood manger who specializes in representing young actors,” a guy named Martin Weiss, who runs Martin Weiss Management, was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department. He was charged with committing lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14 and was being held on $300,000 bail.
“Pedophiles and predators in Hollywood are just as rampant today, if not more so. The entertainment industry is much larger than it was in their day. Think how many cable channels there are. In Corey’s day, there were channels 2-13,” Anne Henry, co-founder of BizParentz Foundation, an organization that supports families of children working in the entertainment industry, told FOX411. “We also have the Internet today, which allows predators to virtually stalk and contact child actors in a more personal way.”
Larry Elder takes us on a Democrat infested mine-field courtesy of Harvey Weinstein. For more on the mentioned “Nuts or Sluts defense,” see Larry’s detailed explanation HERE. And more anti-woman positions by Hillary, see HERE.
Gay Patriot grabs this excerpt to point to how good of a progressive Weinstein was….
In 2015, [Weinstein’s] company distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about campus sexual assault. A longtime Democratic donor, he hosted a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in his Manhattan home last year. He employed Malia Obama, the oldest daughter of former President Barack Obama, as an intern this year, and recently helped endow a faculty chair at Rutgers University in Gloria Steinem’s name. During the Sundance Film Festival in January, when Park City, Utah, held its version of nationwide women’s marches, Mr. Weinstein joined the parade.
