    Hollywood Hypocrites Silent On Sexual Abuser Weinstein, Fellow Liberal



    One-third of the nine-man board at Harvey Weinstein's company have resigned in protest 24-hours after allegations of sexual harassment against the movie mogul threw the firm into chaos.

    Scrambling into damage-limitation mode the Weinstein Company also launched an internal probe into the claims against their disgraced co-founder and confirmed the 65-year-old would take an indefinite leave of absence.

    And following the incendiary claims from actress Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan has slammed the women of Hollywood for their deafening silence.

    Demanding to know where the 'ladies of Hollywood' were on this issue, McGowan - who is believed to have been paid a $100,000 settlement by Weinstein after an incident in the mid-1990s - appeared to attack the mute A-listers.

    Indeed, A-list actresses like Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow who have used their fame to encourage and support women and who have worked with Weinstein have said nothing.

    Those same three women have also been more than willing to supply writers and journalists with quotes praising Weinstein over the years and taking about how wonderful he is to work with as an actor.

    Kidman's lack of comment is perhaps the most glaring of the three as she just came off an awards season push for her HBO show Big Little Lies in which she repeatedly spoke about the importance of empowering women and supporting victims of abuse.

    They are not alone in their silence either, as many other women who have sang the praises of Weinstein while speaking out against harassment also went mute as of Friday afternoon, including: Kate Hudson, Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett, Renee Zellweger, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Toni Collette, Minnie Driver and Uma Thurman.

    Given the number of lawsuits that the company has settled over the years there is of course a chance that some of these women cannot speak because they signed a NDA or do not want to speak on account of their own personal experiences.

    Weinstein had already indicated on Thursday in his written statement in which he acknowledged his behavior in the past had caused 'a lot of pain' that he was taking a leave of absence.

    On Friday, four board members including Weinstein's brother Bob, said that it was 'important for him to get professional help' as they confirmed he was leaving the company he co-founded.

    They left it unclear how long he would be gone, only saying that the 'next steps depend on Harvey's therapeutic progress, the outcome of the Board's independent investigation and Harvey's own personal decisions'.

    Indeed, it has been suggested that it was Bob Weinstein himself who orchestrated the shocking New York Times story which detailed lurid allegations of sexual assault against his brother.

    According to the New York Post a former staff member said, 'Bob's wanted Harvey out for years' and one insider said that 'Bob may even have fed this story' to the Times.

    And as the backlash grew, graphic revelations appeared in the HuffPost on Friday evening, claiming that Weinstein cornered a New York reporter and forcibly made her watch him masturbate in front of her.

    Lauren Sivan, formerly a Fox News Reporter, claims that when she worked with the cable channel Long Island 12 a decade ago, Weinstein insisted she take a tour with him in Socialista, a club he part-owned.

    She claims he took her downstairs to a kitchen and cleared it of staff and then tried to kiss her. When she refused his advance he said, 'Well, can you just stand there and shut up'.

    The movie mogul is then alleged to have masturbated in front of her and ejaculated into a nearby flower pot.
    Sivan says she was trapped and intimidated and deeply shocked.

    The silence among PH liberals is likewise deafening. What gives, boys and girls? Is sexual harassment only offensive to you when it is committed by a conservative?

    Hypocrisy is a universal human sin, TNV. Can you observe your own?

    Can I?

    Neither one of us can change anyone other than ourselves.

    Someone hurts kids, Build a shack around a stump nail his penis to the stump give him a knife and set the stump on fire.. (it becomes his choice after that.)

    Either way he will not sexually abuse another child.

    political, economic, educational etc. status is not an issue.


    Remember Roman Polanski the Acadamy HONORED him with (I think it was a lifetime achievement award).

    Hollywood overlooks Weinsteins "issues" because he makes money.

    He's been a very successful movie maker.

    What rock have you been under? Dems are giving back or donating his money to charity. There are 3 threads here. Many HOLLYWOOD women have been speaking out. IF THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM CAN NAIL THIS GUY, go for it!! If he is a 'part' of any corp with a board of directors, fire his ass and divest him. See if SAG has any power over this guy on behalf of its members.

    It's not a dearth of outrage, we just don't know how the hell that business works?

    Of COURSE it's hypocritical.

    That's what Hollywood is.

    That's what Hollywood does.

    They worship their own and pretend to be righteous.

    They love telling the rest of us how to live our lives...
    Thanks from Madeline and carpe diem
