Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein has been exposed as a sexual predator. Weinstein, a liberal Democrat, is implicated in one of the biggest sexual scandals in recent memory.
More than two-dozen women – among them actresses Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan – have made a number of harassment accusations against him. Some even accused him of rape and sexual assault.
Weinstein was fired from his film studio after an explosive New York Times investigation exposed three decades of sexual assault and harassment allegations against the film mogul. His wife announced she is leaving him. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has voted to expel Weinstein, and his own brother called him “sick and depraved.” Weinstein, 65, insists sexual relations he had were consensual.
The liberal elites and those close to Weinstein knew about his reputation and his inappropriate behavior with women, yet they are feigning outrage. So why is Harvey Weinstein finally being exposed, and what does the left gain from his downfall?
Weinstein is a top Democratic fund-raiser. He supported Hillary Clinton, and he is a friend of the Obamas. In fact, Michelle Obama called him a “wonderful human being,” and Malia Obama had a coveted intern position at Weinstein’s company. It took Hillary and the Obamas almost a full week to issue statements. Yet, these people couldn’t wait to trash Donald Trump as a “misogynist” for his locker-room talk – what hypocrites!
Weinstein brought this upon himself, and if he’s guilty, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Obviously, there is a major problem in Hollywood, and Weinstein is just the tip of the iceberg. But instead of addressing Weinstein’s alleged crimes and exposing other sexual predators in Hollywood, the left is politicizing and weaponizing this issue to attack all men.
Ronan Farrow, contributor to the New Yorker who helped expose the Weinstein story, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that this is not just about Weinstein, it’s not just about Hollywood – it’s about the abuse of power and “a culture of silence around powerful men.” Farrow described Weinstein’s accusers as “incredibly brave” women.
Liberal columnist Maureen Dowd wrote in a recent commentary that she asked actor Tim Robbins, who had some unpleasant business dealings with Weinstein, about the lesson from the Weinstein scandal. Robbins said:
“It’s not just in show business, it’s every business,” he said. “It’s about men who use power to get an advantage over women. It’s gross, it’s unacceptable, but unfortunately, it’s pretty persistent.”
Now feminists are demanding “change” and using this case to smear and tarnish men across the board. These same women defended serial philanderer Bill Clinton and viciously attacked and mocked the women he abused. The reality is that whenever a tragedy, scandal or crisis occurs, the left is quick to exploit and politicize it, and bad laws follow.
For example, after recent Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 people and injured more than 500, the left immediately began manipulating the tragedy. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, and liberal celebrities immediately called for gun control and attacked the NRA.
Evil understands that if it can get you emotional, feeling bad or guilty, you are more likely to go along with it – even if it means passing laws that won’t solve the root problem and will directly infringe on your constitutional rights. And the new laws and policies they introduce in this emotional state always hurt decent, conservative, straight, white men.
For example, under the guise of protecting LGBT “rights,” California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation last week that allows jail time for using the wrong gender pronoun! If this is not an all-out assault on Christian conservative free speech, I don’t know what is.
Leftists hate the order of God (God in Christ, Christ in man, man over women and women over children), and they will not rest until it’s turned upside-down.
Look at the black community. They made the black woman feel good by giving her a false sense of “power” with welfare and took the man out the home. As a result, the average black man doesn’t act or think like a man, and he doesn’t take the physical and spiritual responsibility of a man.
They tried to destroy Donald Trump during the election with false allegations and stories of “racism” and “sexual harassment.” Almost a year later, those allegations are gone and his accusers have crawled back into their hellholes.
Feminists and LGBT activists are attacking and degrading anything that is good, tough and independent. After years of relentless pressure, the weak men in charge of the Boy Scouts announced this week they’re going co-ed. This is not about helping girls or making them “stronger” – it’s about weakening and destroying masculinity.
Despite what leftists say, this is not a war between men and women; it’s truly a spiritual battle of good versus evil.
We must resist evil without hate in order to overcome it. We cannot get caught up with the left’s language and their attempt to emotionalize a “crisis” to get us to go along with their godless agenda.
