Listen To You Tell Me Texas Friday 10/13/17
If Satan ever laughs, it must be at hypocrites; they are the greatest dupes he has; they serve him better than any others, and receive no wages.”
Charles Caleb Colton,
19th century English cleric.
If Rev. Colton were offering that observation today, he would almost have to be speaking of the American Left in general and the Hollywood Left in particular.
Following the explosion into the national consciousness of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s sexual predations, all sorts of Hollywood lefties are suddenly expressing outrage. Actress Meryl Streep, among many others, professes to be “shocked.”
Give us a break, Meryl. This story is still fresh and yet it’s already out there that pretty much everybody in Hollywood has known for a long time that Harvey Weinstein is a piggish, sexually-obsessed creep who routinely uses his power and clout to get over on women who otherwise would never give him a second look.
Weinstein’s obsession with pretty Hollywood actresses has been a running joke in the movie industry. During the 2013 Academy Awards telecast, presenter Seth McFarlane, having just introduced Sally Field, Amy Adams, Helen Hunt, Jacki Weaver and Anne Hathaway as nominees for best supporting actress, went on to quip;
Congratulations. You five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.”
Meryl Streep and Ashley Judd and essentially the entire galaxy of female stars in Hollywood have long characterized Republicans as brutish, war-on-women-committing misogynist pigs. They hold this view most particularly of late with respect to Donald Trump. And most of them are not the least bit shy about saying so, often unleashing vulgar, profanity-laced tirades on the subject.
Isn’t it interesting that they are this passionate and outspoken about Republican misogynist pigs while long tolerating and even worshiping a liberal mega-misogynist pig right in their own midst?
It is, of course, not limited to Hollywood. On the other coast, Hillary Clinton, still nominally married to the former Misogynist in Chief, finds herself in the very uncomfortable position of having to finally break down and denounce the very behavior in Harvey Weinstein that she vigorously defended in her own husband. (And what to do about the millions that Weinstein has given to the Clintons directly and to their various shady causes and organizations?)
It is astonishing the degree to which liberals – including the media – get away with such inconsistency. Even though many (though, admittedly, not all) of the highest-profile accusations of sexual misconduct have been leveled against liberal Democrats – Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen and now Harvey Weinstein come to mind – the Left is still able to enjoy a high level of success characterizing sexual misconduct as something perpetrated all but exclusively by white, patriarchal, Republican men.
I have said on repeated occasions that there is no greater hypocrite in all of God’s creation than a rich liberal. Thank you Meryl and Ashley and Hillary and all of you glittering liberal women for again proving me right.
Given how vulgar many movies and much of TV has become, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood incubates liberal creeps like Weinstein. Like so much the left tolerates, Weinstein’s behavior was winked at as long as Weinstein’s behavior could be kept secret–and for a long time it was kept from public knowledge thanks to a complicit media and lefty women willing to prostitute their sisters for the leftist cause.
While on this subject, it occurred to me–where is the National Organization of Women? NOW is now invisible. Does it even exist these days? If so, NOW would likely be the same sisterhood of enablers for Weinstein that they were for Bill Clinton when he was the Weinstein of his day.
Are we to believe that this was, or is, the only casting couch in Hollywood? If these women that have come forward are so brave why don’t they reveal all the other “CASTING COUCHES”!!!!!!!!
Nothing like the truth, now is there? Something liberals hate with a passion. Weinstein just LOOKS nasty and any woman who put herself in the position to be sexually manipulated by this beast is in large part guilty herself. Before anyone starts screaming I am wrong, just think about it. A young pretty girl goes to Hollywood in the hopes of hitting it big and runs into something like Weinstein who promises her success. Her desire to be an actress on the big screen overrides her repulsion of this man. This is legendary in Hollywood, so she holds her nose and for her dream she succombs to his requests. She had a choice and chose to do what she did. How is that not putting herself in the position to be sexually manipulated? See it for what it is. This is what keeps the predators going and continually doing what they do. And with people like the left protecting them as hillary did billy boy, they have a clear playing field. It takes guts to speak out against things like this and thankfully some did. Scum like Weinstein needs to be held accountable for his actions so that no other young pretty up and coming actress want to be has to endure what no telling how many have had to for a dream. If the left is as woman friendly as they holler about, they would be all over this like ants at a picnic! NOT defending this beast.
When are the Leftists going to learn that we Patriotic American Constitutional Conservatives don’t care about or believe in the opinion of Left wing trolls or their favorite fake media publications (Vogue) that have NO CREDIBILITY due to their demented, long standing, hate America first mentality, that covers up and twists the truth in order to indoctrinate their readers with the “virtues” of Socialism and Social Justice (Marxism). Never!
It’s all completely made-up!
Overlooking something here, aren’t we? While Harvey Weinstein is being universally condemned for his boorish behavior, your station is still bringing us the glowing praises of Sean Hannity and Mark Levin when it comes to Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes. No condemnation at all.
If you really want to see the face of hypocrisy, you’ll find it in the bathroom, right above the sink.
