Weinstein accused of Sexual Harassment

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is being accused of sexually harassing movie stars over the past 30 years. I won't be beholding my breath for all of those leftists that railed against Mr. Trump to come out and condemn Weinstein. But, hey, it's all ok because he's now going to focus his attention on the NRA.

Quote:
Ive decided that Im going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. Im going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. Im making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party.

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, Weinstein wrote. I have since learned it's not an excuse, in the office - or out of it. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed.

But Hollywood will celebrate and applaud him just as they did Roman Polanski.

Perfect ad campaign opportunity for the NRA. " we support the right of women to own firearms so they can protect themselves from sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein ".

^^^That's brilliant.

I read his statement and it reeks of arrogance and no remorse.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/10/05/us/statement-from-harvey-weinstein.html

You know it's bad when CNN even has an article detailing the ties he has with top democrats. Apparently his behavior was well known and it was no surprise when it finally went public.

Quote:
It seems like Weinstein's boorish behavior -- to put it mildly -- was an open secret in the circles he ran in. The prevailing sentiment when the New York Times published its piece was not "WOW!" but rather "Finally!"

That's important. If everyone around Weinstein knew about his inappropriate conduct around women, why were so many Democratic politicians willing to pal around with him and/or accept his money?

He behaved like Bill Clinton, partied with Bill Clinton, and was treated like Bill Clinton by leftist celebrities. Why would the Clintonista party have a problem with any of that?

Another "vast right wing conspiracy...."

Though it may be the case there are right wingers pushing this, it doesn't negate the allegations.

^here is some guidance for liberals who think the right wing is out to get them. If you don't have dirt in your past, there is nothing to dig up! If you are not doing anything illegal or immoral then no one is going to bust you! If you are doing something illegal or immoral it eventually catches up with you and is exposed!

Hollywood vermin sexually exploiting women is as old as Hollywood. This piece of shit is washed up and hasn't done anything for a while, so he's expendable. When he was an Oscar machine, all of these crimes were "overlooked." S/F....Ken M

Weinstein. Color me shocked.

If you really want to get mind-fucked, start looking into what they do to the girls at Nickelodeon.

They're huge fans of rapists, pedophiles, and druggies.

Polanski and Woody Allen come to mind as their icons.

A long list of wife beaters like James Dean, Johnny Depp, and countless more just add to this.

I guess my thoughts of running for a political office is fucked like a fat baby not being supervised in a bakery...

There was this from a few years ago....
Rumours have swirled that Jamie Lynn is in fact pregnant by an older TV producer.

Dan Schnieder. (pretty sure i spelled that wrong) He was an actor on Head Of The Class back in the 80's then got into producing. The stories about him are epic, and if true, he would be looking at literally dozens of cases.

This is turning into quite the shit show. More women have come forward and some said they went to the police, who refused to prosecute. It's not surprising that someone of his stature is above the law, but that doesn't make it any less fucked up. Matt Damon and Russell Crowe have been accused of covering up for him and CNN is even calling out the Obama's for their association with him.
