    yeah, just when he goes public in disdain for weinstein, dirt pops up from the past. Thats why you follow holiness according to the Bible. It keeps you from being hypocritical.

    Weinstein has been at this since he helped co-found Miramax Films. That's more than a decade. He was found out and publicly humiliated for being a pig but he's not the only one in Hollywood. The casting couch legend started long before HW . And will be there long after.
    Hollywood appeals to the vain materialists that want to get rich and get women. Or men. Men are harassed sexually in Hollyweird too.

    Yep. Hillary is a bit of a hypocrite here. She was all over (name redacted) for doing the same thing Weinstein was apparently doing, but she has yet to say anything about Weinstein.

    Not that she's the only hypocrite, of course.

    Also to fact check people on the Clinton case. Yep. She said it way too late, and was a hypocrite for it. But even her and Obama did come out after some pressure. Link is in another thread. Politico article, a critical one at that, is the source.

    Ah, and yet some who are condemning Weinstein, are still supporting Trump, who did the same things, and bragged about how his celebrity let him get away with it.

    Hollywood’s political credibility now is so utterly destroyed it glows in the dark

    The real War on Women was in Hollywood.

    The Harvey Weinstein scandal has the potential to deal a body blow to the role Hollywood actors, and by extension the entire entertainment industry, plays in our political life.

    For decades we have had to listen to moralizing by Hollywood actors denigrating Republicans and particularly conservatives. It is in overdrive in the age of Trump.

    And all the while, they knew, they ALL knew about Harvey. They even joked about it publicly:

    If republicans new they would have called him on it awhile back. Democrats have a reason however to bypass judgement of a sexual predator.

    If Hillary was so appalled by Weinstein why did she wait a week to comment?

    She's as big a hypocrite as those denouncing Weinstein, and still supporting Trump. Well, almost. She was apparently shamed into doing the right thing, but most Trump supporters still won't do that.

    No one is is surprised.

    Likely because she was looking to how her foundation might suffer reprisals if she officially disconnected from one of her biggest donors.

    She's hoping Harvey will hire her to take care of his bimbo eruptions because she has so much experience taking care of her husbands...

    I do not see the big deal about Harvey... When Hollywood produces the trash it does isn't it a clue as to what goes on behind the scenes.
    The young girls like polannski's victim are true victims ... of him and those around her.. thinking these grown women didn't know what was going on just doesn't ring true to me... ... Hollywood is sick.... What is the real truth... were the women using their sex for gain... was it really only harvey the creep...

    That's just it, but so far no evidence that this was voluntary, if you listen to the audio....you see how he begs and pleads like a creaper. Don't defend him.

    I think it is always a big deal when things like this come out. It tells the fans of movies what price many actors pay to be on the big screen.
    Gwyneth Paltrow was alleged to be one of this guys victims. And she was a known star at the time.
    It's the fault of the predator only in these cases. Be it Weinstein or Polanski. A creep is a creep.
