Harvey Weinstein Is a Product of the Left's Rebellion Against God
Referencing Harvey Weinstein's sex abuse scandal, a friend asked me if I thought this was going to end up being Hollywood's version of the Roman Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. I immediately replied, "Nope. It's going to be much worse."
Hollywood is in full-on damage control as the privileged members of the leftist promised land feign shock and dismay at the accusations that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and raped women. As the number of accusations continues to grow, mixed signals about who knew what and who didn't know what cloud the discussion. While I'm sure that some people in Hollywood were unaware, it's naïve to believe that Weinstein's behavior wasn't enabled by many Hollywood power-brokers, famous actors, and leftist politicians who could've stopped it. Even worse, many of those feigning shock and dismay are probably busy googling "non-extradition countries" while dictating a denunciation of Weinstein to a spokesperson. After all, this is the industry that gave a standing ovation to convicted pedophile Roman Polanski, continues to fete alleged rapist Woody Allen, and grovels at the feet of Bill Clinton, a man who sexually abused women who were under his power.
Anyone still buying the "shock" from Hollywood should watch the clip embedded in the Tweet below. In 2013, Seth MacFarlane joked about Weinstein and his abuse of women (this is in addition to the scores of Hollywood elite hiding behind some version of "I heard the rumors, but didn't see anything myself").
One of the rules of comedy is that an element of truth makes a joke funnier. The joke about Hollywood's casting couch has been around a lot longer than Harvey Weinstein has. Known for sexual hedonism since its inception, Hollywood has elevated preying on the dreams of the vulnerable and exploiting women, men, and even children to slake the lust of progressives into an art form, literally. In fact, casting couch jokes have too much truth in them; those jokes are not funny.
And that's the thing -- as repulsive as Weinstein's behavior is, he's not an outlier in Hollywood.
Shocking everyone, yet not really shocking anyone, actor Terry Crews almost broke Twitter with his revelation that a highly placed Hollywood executive sexually assaulted him. In a flurry of Tweets, Crews claimed that this unnamed executive groped his crotch. Crews wanted to pound the guy into the floor, but realized that "'240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho' would be the headline the next day."
