It’s interesting that these women who have stepped out of the closet after 30+ years are labeled heroes for finally exposing Weinstein’s sexual predatory actions. It is equally interesting who is claiming to have ‘no knowledge’ of any of his purported indiscretions. Hollywood is a community, like Peyton Place, where everyone knows everything about everybody. The fact that this ‘community’ aided and abetted, enabled and supported the illegal activity of Weinstein is rather significant.
It is reported that his contract had a clause regarding sexual harassment, apparently numerous women were paid off over the course of decades. The Hollywood couch has long been a part of the package. And it didn’t extend to just attractive women, but men and boys as well. This is – their community.
Not only did these ten women aid Weinstein’s perversity, but his company and Directors as well – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar. They turned a blind eye, cut the checks, and shrugged it off. To make the claim that they are ‘utterly shocked by the allegations’, is quite sad. Why is this different than sex trafficking?
Sex trafficking: when someone uses coercion to cause a commercial sex act. A commercial sex act is when a person receives something in exchange – like an Oscar, a role in a movie…
When looking at various historical sexual predatory scandals, Hollywood would seem to be at the forefront of many accusations; Franklin Scandal, UN Scandal, British Scandals – Jimmy Savile, a scandal that has sat on the books now for nearly 40 years… Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein?
The story is sensationalized, money is exchanged, private discussions, the story is quashed, time passes, everyone forgets, the victims become the bad guy, and history is rewritten. Over and over again.
In the ‘real world’, aiding and abetting a criminal – is a crime. But Hollywood has set themselves above the law – above education – and above morality. They represent tyranny. They rewrite our history to conform to an agenda, an ideology that suits their perverse humor. Their power has superseded city, state and federal government.
Our acceptance has become so lax that the sex/porn/enslavement industry has surpassed the drug trade. On the low side, it is estimated that the industry nets $150 billion tax free per year. There is no real way to know the finances given it isn’t a measured business reporting profits to the IRS…
I’ve listened to friends who justify their porn as not hurting anyone, just a natural part of human sexuality. But of course, it is hugely false, it is a rationale that has even been supported by therapists. How small – is what created how big.
The problem that has evolved is how do you squash an industry that makes ten times more Net Income than the largest company in the world – Walmart? Pornography was legalized in the US under the statute of ‘free speech’ and consensual adults. But apparently, that wasn’t good enough, the simple porn became blasé, and the demand for illegal pedophile and forced slavery became the appetite.
And the industry flourished. Sting operations continue, a few gang members and pimps go to jail, but the real CEO’s remain untouched. Weinstein has flown the coup taking a private jet to an unknown destination under the pretext of registering into a clinic for sex addiction. Given charges could be filed, it would seem he has become simply another cog in the mechanization of the industry. The story will die and history rewritten.
