‘Hollywood Perversions’

“Hollywood’s elite likes to portray themselves as ‘progressive’ crusaders who are morally superior to the masses that make them rich.

“Anyone unfortunate enough to catch the preachy performances at the ‘Oscars’ and ‘Emmys’ could attest to the entertainment industry’s Trump-obsessed self-righteousness.

“But the reality is that behind the holier-than-thou grandstanding is an industry as toxic as a sewage treatment plant.

“The Harvey Weinstein scandal has laid bare Hollywood’s ugly underbelly, and it’s much worse than you imagined.

“The Oscar-winning producer and co-founder of ‘Miramax’, behind films such as “Pulp Fiction”, “Good Will Hunting”, “The King’s Speech” and “Shakespeare in Love”, has been exposed as a serial sex pest who preyed on a succession of young women, including Hollywood actresses Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd.

“He would expose himself to unwilling women during “business meetings” and ask for massages or sexual favours, or request that they watch him bathe.

“TV host Lauren Sivan came forward to reveal that after rejecting Weinstein’s advances, he trapped her in a hallway at a club and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated into a pot plant.

“It’s one thing to lecture the little people about their carbon footprint while swanning around the globe on private jets.

“But to present yourself as a crusader for women’s rights while you terrorise dozens of females over more than three decades takes real chutzpah.

“The man who was lauded by American Presidents and first ladies as a campaigner for ‘progressive’ values was, in fact, a grubby sexual predator, and everybody knew it. It’s not just the Catholic Church that covers up sexual abuse or wilfully ignores abhorrent actions.

“It seems if you are successful and publicly advocate for all the fashionable Leftie causes, then you’re given a free pass to carry on like an entitled pig.

“By turning a blind eye to Weinstein’s antics, the industry tacitly approved behaviour that was predatory, perverted and menacing.

“Last Friday, the ‘New York Times’ published details of Weinstein’s conduct, including his habit of exposing himself, using female staff to “facilitate liaisons” with “vulnerable women”, and the existence of at least eight financial settlements with aggrieved women.

“Weinstein’s response to the story was so bizarre that it read like a parody. He apologised and expressed regret for “what happened” before quoting rapper ‘Jay Z’ and virtue-signalling about the ‘National Rifle Association’ and Donald Trump, and then boasting about funding scholarships for women to make his mother proud.

“If Weinstein’s statement was designed to show genuine contrition, then it failed miserably.

“It’s worth remembering that Weinstein was much more than a Hollywood heavyweight: he was feted by the Clinton and Obama administrations and hosted Hillary Clinton at his New York home for a ‘Democratic’ fundraiser.

“Michelle Obama spoke glowingly about him in 2013, calling him a “wonderful human being” and a “good friend”, and the Obamas’ daughter, Malia, interned for Weinstein this year.

“One has some insight into just how untouchable Weinstein believed he was when he penned a column in 2009 advocating for director Roman Polanski, who drugged and anally raped a 13-year-old and then fled justice.

Whatever you think about the so-called crime, Polanski has served his time”, Weinstein wrote.

“Reading it now still makes my skin crawl.

“Weinstein is the type of male ‘feminist’ that can reconcile leaving a junior staffer shaking and in tears after insisting she massage his naked body, with taking to the streets in the ‘Women’s March’ and contributing funds for a feminist studies program bearing Gloria Steinem’s name at Rutgers University.

“It’s been disappointing to see that even after the ‘New York Times’ blew the whistle on Weinstein, and more women came forward to detail their individual horror stories, the overwhelming majority of Hollywood celebrities, normally keen to opine about societal ills, have been silent.

“Actor Kirstie Alley, a rare Hollywood non-liberal who received “thousands of hate tweets” for her momentary support of Trump, was one of the few who acknowledged the scandal without attempting to minimise it.

“She tweeted:
Funny how celebs are staying quiet about elephant in the room. Maybe fear they won’t work again … crickets on sexual predator Harvey Weinstein”.

“McGowan, best known for the TV series, ‘Charmed’, has been scathing of the industry, and labelled anyone who did business with Weinstein “complicit”.

“She tweeted:
Ladies of Hollywood, your silence is deafening
and
Agents, managers, directors, casting agents, producers, distributors, SAG (Screen Actors Guild), DGA (Directors Guild of America), PGA (Producers Guild of America), studio heads, network = 30 years of cover-up”.

“McGowan received a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein in 1997 after
an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival”.
It seems incredible that it took another 20 years for Weinstein to be publicly shamed.

Hollywood’s moral compass is so warped, you’re more likely to be ostracised for being a conservative than a sexual predator.”

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… It’s all done under the radar… it’s the big secret. I was surrounded by them when I was 14 years old… they were everywhere, like vultures.”
– Corey Feldman

“For those who haven’t already heard, Corey Feldman (arguably the biggest child actor of the 80’s) went public about being sexually abused by Hollywood moguls many times over the course of his childhood.

“He describes how he and fellow former child star Corey Haim were constantly fed drugs and taken advantage of. Feldman started speaking out after the death of his friend, explaining that the trauma Haim experienced as a child played a large role in his death.

There was a circle of older men that surrounded themselves around this group of kids, and they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry.”
– Corey Feldman

“This isn’t the first time an actor or actress has come out; Allison Arngrim, the former “Little House on the Prairie” star, also wrote about her own experiences in the book “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch”, revealing how she was abused multiple times.

“Sex abuse charges have been laid many times against Hollywood employees. Martin Weiss is one of them, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented several child actors. Another one is Jason James Murphy, 35, a casting agent who frequently worked with young clients…

“I’d also like to mention that Randy Quaid went on record saying that there are a group of “star whackers” in Hollywood. He said that actors are killed and many others are being tampered with…

“I also echo Roseanne Barr’s words that ‘MK Ultra’ rules in Hollywood, that children within the entertainment industry are constantly subjected to trauma-based mind control on multiple levels, that they are controlled, abused, and used their entire lives…”

“Woody Allen hints about “polymorphous perversions” in many of his movies, from sex with animals in “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex” to sex with young “blond girls” in “Love and Death”. Woody Allen introduced sexual perversion into extremely popular movies, and he made it funny. Little did we know that his own engagement in deviant sex, the abuse of his daughters, would become the backpainting of his on-screen obsession with the profane.

“Dylan Farrow’s open letter to the man whom she once called “Daddy”, details years of her sexual abuse by Woody Allen. The text of her letter is frank and very sad. The apparent lack of remorse, or fear of being caught on Allen’s part, reveals a man who exposed his crimes in cinematic flashes, testing the limits of his personal behavior against the credibility of his public persona.

“Mia Farrow, Allen’s not-quite-common law wife, split with him after the two had adopted several children and were raising them together for a number of years. After the break-up, Allen entered into a sexual relationship with his adopted daughter, Soon Yi, when she was barely out of her teens, and assaulted the younger Dylan on countless occasions during his visits with her.

“The letter by Dylan Farrow was written partly in response to the ‘Golden Globes’ “Lifetime Achievement” award Woody Allen received last month, amid fawning and praise from nearly everyone in the entertainment world. Will the Hollywood elite take notice that the man they deem a great influence in American cinema, is also a vile, destructive, sexual predator? Will they rescind the award? Will Hollywood acknowledge the error in presuming that movie-making prowess transcends a child’s outcries for justice?

“Roman Polanski, another notable Hollywood director, seduced, drugged and raped a 13 year old girl in 1977. Within elite movie-making circles, his reputation went unquestioned. His skill as a director seemed to trump his horrendous crime against a child. Polanski plead guilty in a plea bargain, but fled the country in 1978. Polanski’s career was relocated, but went unimpeded, and he actually won an Oscar for “The Pianist” in 2003. In 2008, Polanski sought reentry into the United States. He was arrested in Zurich in 2009, at which time several French politicians, and Hollywood luminaries came out in support of Polanski. Polanski had been a free man in Europe to that time. He carried on making films, enjoying acclaim and wealth. He paid not one installment toward his debt to society or his young victim. His crime, to the elites, seemed of no consequence, because, after all, Roman Polanski was a great filmmaker.

“Why is it so easy for the powerful in show biz to dismiss high crimes committed by their iconic figures? Hollywood is a Babylon of self-involved, over-indulgent neurotics, this is true. But the absence of shame on the parts of those like Allen and Polanski, points to an ideological gulf between elites in cinema and the rest of us.

“In his autobiography, Roman Polanski describes himself as an Atheist. Woody’ Allen’s Atheism is no secret. Its threads are woven into everything he’s ever created. Atheist forefathers like Allen, are probably pleased to see Atheism, Agnosticism, and “nothing in particular” rise in popularity among young people, whose parents were less religious than their grandparents, and so forth.

“But godlessness has its costs, and society at large suffers when the substrate of the Rule of Law — that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights of life and liberty — is eroded. Civil law, based only on pragmatic considerations without the overriding moral imperative of an Almighty God, is toothless. Those with deviant impulses, like Polanski and Allen, will act on such impulses because moral law bears no weight in their reality constructs. The status of being an iconic filmmaker further insulates such criminals. Admirers and hangers-on surrounding those like Allen and Polanski provide a thick shield from public accountability.

“Crimes and Misdemeanors” is one of Allen’s most confounding, darkest movies. A fascinating psychological thriller, it nevertheless leaves one hanging in a relativistic void. Though the perpetrators are clearly guilty and due harsh punishment, there is none. In classic Allenesque thinking, God is dead, and there is no one to take His place. There is no justice for criminals, there are no consequences for evil deeds, and virtue has no rewards.

“Woody Allen has likely exposed his existential indisposition in films more than we will probably ever know. But his movies are born out of his mind, where there is no god, there is no inherent good, and there is nothing so bad it can be called evil. Criminals go free because, in the dark and silent end, it doesn’t matter. Is it this secular humanistic thinking that gives Allen, Polanski and others like them occupying the heady realms of cinema, license to ruin the lives of children?”
