Did YOU know about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations? (Reader Poll)

Did YOU know about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations? (Reader Poll)

Hollywood, the media and Democrats kept that dirty little secret quiet for decades, but they knew.

Hollywood, the liberal media, and Democrats kept a dark, dirty secret for decades.

It is now acknowledged to have been common knowledge in those domains that numerous women over a long period of time complained about sexual harassment by movie industry mogul Harvey Weinstein. And there was substantial evidence to back up the allegations.

But there was silence. And worse than silence, there was cover up.

A story in the NY Times in 2004 was stripped of the allegations and watered down after alleged interference from Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Russell Crowe.

I didn’t know. I barely knew who Harvey Weinstein was. I had heard the name, and knew he produced movies, but didn’t know much more.

I certainly never heard anything about the sexual harassment allegations. But then again, as I’ve noted before, I’ve removed myself from much of professional culture because it is so corrupt and political.

Prior to the story breaking last week, did you know about the allegations?

Poll open until midnight Pacific Time Wednesday night, October 11.

Nope. Didn’t know. Not surprised. Terrible people. Too typical of the whole “celebrity” culture. Power makes people sick. Always has. Human nature.

    Specific individuals – no. That Hollywood was rife with that kind of slime, oh yes. One reason why actors/actresses spouting off on moral/political issues irritate me so much.

Another day, another Church.

Today, it’s an expose of the Pro-Choice Church and its social liberal quasi-religion.

I had to google “Harvey Weinstein” when I saw it keep trending on Twitter.

I heard it here first.

I’ve seen Harvey Weinstein’s name pop up in other contexts, namely, in the anti-gun, anti-NRA feature-length PSA he was supposed to make with Meryl Streep some years back, that he promised would make the NRA “wish it were never born”.

It didn’t happen.

It’s a pattern we see over and over again. Those on the Left who would presume to control others consistently demonstrate an inability — or unwillingness — to control themselves.

I seem to have a vague memory of him hosting a campaign fund raiser for Hilliary, with lots of ‘stars’ in attendance. He probably invited some young starlets to sexually harass, instead of Hilliary.

Even a pervert has SOME standards.

I not only didn’t know about his bad behavior, I didn’t even know his name. But then, I don’t follow Hollywood gossip or watch movies much. It’s healthier that way.

Any guy, who can’t either grow a beard or learn how to shave, is probably a pervert.

If you think this was a ‘secret,’ I have a secret for you: everyone in Hollywood knows what everyone else is doing. Or rather, who they are doing. Or how old ‘who they are doing it to’ is. And their gender.

Harvey Weinstein is one of many of his kind. The other ‘Hollywood Harveys’ come in all different flavors: gay, lesbian, female, and of course male.

It’s always been that way – except for the the cult of leftism and warped, factual ignorance that so sickeningly pervades hollywood.

It wouldn’t be so bad if pedophilia wasn’t often involved. Interesting documentary on it:

Don’t feel bad for the likes of Meryl Streep if having to watch Harvey Weinstein take a shower was the price of her ticket to fame and fortune. The nut she is, who knows who Streep makes watch her take a shower. (Maybe it’s Harvey.)

This is sewer obama, hillary clinton, the democrat media crawl around in.

    Ragspierre in reply to | October 9, 2017 at 9:14 pm

    It’s also the sewer that “grab ’em by the pussy” T-rump crawls in.

    In know…that never, ever happened, EVERYBODY talks like that, and besides…Hellary…!!!

      Trump’s comment to another guy is the equivalent of Weinstein forcing prospective employees to watch him masturbate?

      Great call.

        Nobody said that.

        Great lie.

          Nice fake outrage by the Jacobin. The Weinstein’s Hollywood have been damaging women for years. Not even close to a moral equivalent with Trump.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | October 11, 2017 at 7:47 am

          I didn’t even suggest “moral equivalency”, liar.

          You can’t deny that he crawls in that same sewer.


          MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | October 11, 2017 at 11:51 am

          Classic. What is the lie? As for sewers, they all live in it. Nature of the beast. The Soros funded sewer is an ocean compared to the Trump world. Your Nirvana world does not exist. Those who are rootin for Trump make their bases not on his ‘moral” background anyways. I guess you do not get that.

          The goal is to break the chains of system of mediocracy supported by the established ruling class. It seems you are part of that system of mediocracy. Claiming to be for Ted Cruz changes but not supporting the actual progress made by Trump. I give him three cheers for what he has done to the Federal bench. But hey, I don’t want to bring more attention to that.

          I am also glad he has exposed the RINO’s. Now we can deal with that in the 2018 elections.

    Ms. Streep’s non-denial denial is especially despicable, having praised him effusively and disgustingly, in my estimation, not just because of her public behavior on this matter.

    As a fellow alum, I get to watch Vassar trot her out regularly for fundraisers and as general proof of Liberal Superiority Saving the World! ™

    She knew, and her smug pseudodenial makes her almost as repugnant as him.

      At the Golden Globes a few years back, Streep called Weinstein “God” and the crowd clapped. That tells you all you need to know about their morals–and how much they feared this predator..

I’m embarrassed to admit I’m a entertainment gossip junkie so the answer is yes, I have known about Weinstein’s casting couch and vulgar behavior for many years.

Who’s Harvey Weinstein? And, more importantly, why on Earth would I care?

    He is the funder of much of the Democrat party’s campaigns, slanders, lies, and cultural propaganda. He has earned a lot more unpleasantness than he is getting.

I did not know the specifics of his antics, but I knew he had a reputation of being a pig with the women.

I know Tropic Thunder’s Les Grossman was supposedly based on Stuart Cornfeld, but I always assumed there was Harvey in that mix too.

numerous women over a long period of time complained

Well, that part’s hardly a big surprise.

But I’m shocked—shocked!—to read that this sort of thing goes on in Hollywood.

Get real. Hollywood runs on money, narcotics, self-inflated egomania, and non-stop grab-ass like this. It just wouldn’t be Hollywood without it.

A question which might actually be interesting—but won’t be explored—is exactly who is pushing the selective outrage buttons to destroy this guy, and why are they doing it now.

Progressives had to destroy Cosby because he had the temerity to claim that some of the chronic problems dogging “the Community” were due to behavioral shortcomings endemic to black American culture, rather than da man’s “institutional racism”. An unforgivable act of treason, and he had to suffer for it. So ancient crimes were suddenly discovered … surprise, surprise. In contrast, Polanski, an even more serious criminal, has escaped pursuit by the Hollywood Nemesis because he merely pigged-out on sex crimes; he’s never publicly opposed “the narrative”, so he’s safe.

So, what did Weinstein do to set them off? I was never sufficiently interested to try to find out. And still ain’t. But I don’t have to be to know that a yuuge piece of this story is missing.

Well, Safari tells me I have javascript enabled, but I still can’t see the poll.

Anyhow, if I’d heard of Harvey Weinstein before, I’d forgotten about it. So, no, I didn’t know about any of these allegations until last week.

Then again, I’ve got better things to do than obsess over Hollywood types. About the only thing I know about Kardashian is that she’s in the news a lot, over what I don’t know.

I don’t know why anyone is upset. BJ Clinton did a lot worse to women and he is celebrated by the Progressive Fascists. His wife dragged his victims through the mud and she is celebrated. She was able to state that victims of sexual harassment and rape should be believed and the left didn’t laugh at her. So why should we expect anything to be different when this progressive fascist’s misbehaviour is exposed?

The bottom line on all this?

What did Weinstein do that was as bad as the likes of meryl streep being so willingly ignorant and/or morally bankrupt as to do everything in her power to destroy our way of life?

I’ll take weinstein masturbating any day.

Very good question, professor. My wife is in the entertainment industry (not famous, but works with celebrities), and she did not know, however, some people that she talked to after it became public told her that they did know and had known for years, and that many women in their workplace were actually warned not to be alone with him (Weinstein).

Heard the name, couldn’t place it with a person. Why anyone is surprised by these revelations is hard to believe. For years, Bill Clinton, serial whore monger, has been held in high esteem by the Dems. Big deal, you lay down with dogs, you come up with fleas.

But wait, there’s more. Lots more. Much worse.

Of course what’s really disgusting is remembering all the uproar about Trump’s personal behavior, and how no woman or anyone who respects women could possibly vote for him, all of this while the leftist media and celebrity culture knew about one of H. Clinton’s biggest supporters. She probably knew as well.

I supported, and gave money to, several other, more conservative, Republican candidates in 2016, but I voted for Trump, thinking the alternative clearly much, much worse. With reference to Trump’s personal behavior, it has not been stellar over the course of his life. However, I have read several women’s statements that he is not abusive to women who work for him or with him. I have not read about his forcing himself on any women, actually, not like Bill Clinton or Weinstein. If true, this sets him in a different league from Weinstein.

The sudden outbreak of pretended morality on the left is hypocrisy in the extreme.

I was in Hollywood several years ago at a prominent restaurant frequented by the big guys. Saw a woman trying to sell her 14 and 12 year old girls to the movie folks. This was one of the sickest things I have seen and I have seen a bunch. Something needs to be done to break up the Hollywood freaks.

Hollywood is nothing but a great, perverse den of iniquity, immorality, and violence. The power and influence they wield are disproportionate to their numbers. The sooner they are reduced to figurative rubble, the better.

    Re: Nordic Prince:

    It would be great if the old system of vetting scripts so that they were respectful of a virtuous culture could be revived. So much vile material made now. . . .

I had no idea who Harvey Weinstein was until this story went viral. I stopped watching the Oscars a decade or two ago, and I haven’t been to the movies since Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers. I simply will not support America-hating leftists who rail against people like me as a matter of course. There seems to be at least one high profile leftie in every film, so I don’t watch.

I worked at an entertainment law firm, and we all knew that Mr. Weinstein was one of many who played the casting couch game. It was not a secret. Everyone in the Business knew, or at least had heard rumors.

The press is very effective at either promoting a topic or keeping it under wraps. This one got away from them.
The sad part is had something been done about this years ago, some of the later victims would have been spared
Something to think about as a parent if someone wants your son or daughter to go into acting or modeling. Lots of sleezy people in the business.
The Hollywood Reporter has an older interview with Corey Feldman about the rampant child abuse in Hollywood.

If they do it to kids, they will do it to anyone.
