Hollywood doesn’t have a conscience, they turned on Weinstein because he’s washed up

Thursday’s New York Times bombshell, which has effectively ended Oscar-winning producer and Democrat super-donor Harvey Weinstein’s career, contains two equally disturbing pieces of news, only one of which the national media will report and explore.

The first, of course, involves three decades of sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, who has released a broad statement accepting “responsibility” for his behavior coupled with the claim that the Times got some things wrong.

The second bombshell, the one our national media is already sweeping under the rug, is that for twenty-plus years, many in Hollywood believed Weinstein was abusing his power to procure, harass, and manipulate young women, and no one said anything — not even the powerful.

It’s the same old story…

Harvey Weinstein… Jian Ghomeshi, Bill Cosby

Everybody knew about it for years but…

  • Sharkibark

    Starting feminist pussy-hat wearing outrage in 3… 2…. 1…. Sorry. Got nothing.

  • ismiselemeas

    Ghomeshi was a c@nt but he wasn’t even in the same room as the other guys. You’re doing them a disservice by including him in the argument.

    • The scenario was the same however, “everybody knew” no one did anything and yet all of the entertainment is comprised of card carrying lefty “feminists”.

  • Martin B

    Hollywood virtue signaling has always been all about masking the stench of the rot within. Harvey is living proof.

    • Will Quest

      The stench emanating from the sewage holding tank that is ‘Gollywoo’ is nauseating ….. ‘Gollywoo’ is infested with syphilitic hedonistic simpletons , Botox injected brains whose synapses are damaged and are mis-firing , pickled minds in an STD-mush …..

    They only turned on Bill Cosby because he went off the plantation with the pull up your damn pants thing.

    “He hired countless “journalists” to work for his company in various capacities, offered them glamorous opportunities, and oftentimes threatened to pull advertising from publications working on negative stories. An entertainment media starved for Oscar campaign dollars simply could not afford to lose Hollywood’s most prolific Oscar-winner and advertiser.”

  • It has been mentioned that, due to his flops, he was then thrown under the bus.

    It’s good to see that Hollywood has a conscience.

    Mel Gibson has a career. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a career. Harvey owns a production company. He’ll be fine and if not in Hollywood then California politics.

    • Mel Gibson’s true crime was to make a successful movie about Christ. Consider Weinstein’s long-standing proclivities. Are celebrities really that mad about his drunken ravings?

  • Everyone Else

    Cosby used drugs to rape women, all Weinstein did was act gross.

    If Weinstein was a looker like Clooney, the women would have swooned.

    • Weinstein and Cosby are not that different. Both are very gross.

        But jeebus will forgive their sins. That blood will clean anything. Thank you jeebus!!!!!

    • With someone like like Weinstein, the deal is “make nice if you want a career”. That’s not the same thing as some creep in a bar, is it?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    According to the New York Post, Harvey’s estranged brother Bob is behind these revelations. Bob wants to gain control over the company.

    “It’s the same old story…” You missed Bill Clinton.

  • This is the thing with someone like Ashley Judd. She’s a nutty hysteric; on the other hand, she’s spent years having to dissemble about horrible, sleazy things which Can’t Ever Be Mentioned. Assume that she’s telling the truth about having been sexually abused as a child, and I’d say it’s not at all surprising that she’s as brittle and weird as she is.
