Numerous Accusations of Sexual Harassment and Misconduct by Democratic Party Backer Movie Producer Harvey Weinstein
I have a difficult time taking liberals and Democrats seriously when they talk about things such as being against sexism, supporting women, inclusion, and tolerance, when I note most of them seldom speak out against sexism against women when it is committed by liberal or Democrat men, or any of their other favorite groups, as in this case.
Many women – both famous and not, ranging from staff members to movie stars – have come forward the past few days to say that they were raped, groped, or sexually harassed by movie producer Harvey Weinstein, in incidents that took place over a two decade or more time frame.
The news media colluded with Weistein to cover up the charges of sexual misconduct, and the New York Police and D.A. were too inept or unwilling to press criminal charges against Weinstein.
Since these stories about Weinstein broke, other actors and actresses are saying they were groped or sexually abused by other powerful people in the entertainment industry, such as this story.
I find it very obnoxious that a lot of these liberal celebrities or others affiliated with Hollywood like to sit around condemning rank and file, middle class Americans for our perceived shortcomings, or for being conservative or Republican, and they say we are all sexist, yet they themselves abuse women or cover-up sexism.
I’ll either keep updating this post to add new links as more aspects of this story come to light, or I may make a part 2 in the future.
Here are links to news stories about all this (and new headlines are being published every minute, making this a difficult story to keep up with):
