Actor Chris O’Dowd Criticizes Sexually Abusive Movie Producer Harvey Weinstein But He’s Got An Inconsistent Record About Women’s Issues

Actor Chris O’Dowd Criticizes Sexually Abusive Movie Producer Harvey Weinstein But He’s Got An Inconsistent Record About Women’s Issues

I was looking up information about the Irish abortion referendum debates recently, which is how I came across actor Chris O’Dowd’s name in the news and on some of my social media accounts.

O’Dowd is somewhat hypocritical or inconsistent on a few different topics. This is yet another one.

Here is the link I came across:

Irish actor Chris O’Dowd brands disgraced Harvey Weinstein a ‘pig’ and wishes he could ‘time travel a head-butt’ after working with producer several years ago – The Sun, by 

Excerpts from that article, which is dated October 2017:

The comedic actor [O’Dowd] said he was completely unaware of the string of sexual harassment claims against the 65-year-old when he worked with him a number of years ago

Irish Entertainers Publicly Supporting Abortion – including U2 and Actor Chris O’Dowd (This Is Not A Good A Thing)

Irish Entertainers Publicly Supporting Abortion – including Pop Band U2 and Actor Chris O’Dowd (This Is Not A Good A Thing)

I’ve said it before on this blog, and I’ll no doubt have to say it again in the future, but celebrities really should keep their political views to themselves – and I’dd add they should keep their view on highly controversial, inflammatory topics, such as abortion, to themselves as well.

Before I address the annoying public celebrity commentary and support of a controversial issue, to get you up to date here is a link or to about what I’m discussing in this post:

Ireland abortion referendum – the key facts

On May 25 Irish people will vote on whether to relax the country’s strict abortion laws.

Irish abortion referendum: voters on both sides prepare to head home

Ireland divided ahead of abortion referendum

May 2018

Ireland’s strict anti-abortion law was enshrined in its constitution in 1983. No exceptions are made for rape, incest or foetal abnormality, but a later amendment does allow women to travel abroad for a termination.

The vote takes place on May 25th. If the current law is repealed, abortions will be allowed up to 12 weeks of pregnancy in most cases and up to 24 weeks if the women’s health is at risk.

Which brings me to this:

Irish Celebrities Publicly Supporting Legalized Abortion

Irish celebrities have been turning up in the news to support the legalization of abortion in Ireland the last few weeks.

At first, I saw mentions of Irish pop band U2, but as of today, I’ve seen a few mentions of Irish actor Chris O’Dowd (who last I heard is residing in a Los Angeles home that he apparently paid around $870,000 in cash for, yet complaining at one time that some of the movie roles he’s accepted don’t pay enough!!), also publicly speaking out in support of abortion.

Gutfeld: Kanye’s Defense of Candace Owens ‘A Big Deal’ – ‘He Challenged the Mob’

Updates (new links) about the consequences of Kayne West’s support of Trump father below.

Gutfeld: Kanye’s Defense of Candace Owens ‘A Big Deal’ – ‘He Challenged the Mob’

April 2018

Greg Gutfeld said it is a “big deal” that rapper Kanye West defended conservative activist Candace Owens against attacks over her political ideology.

Owens, who is black, has been criticized for her support of President Donald Trump and for her conservative political thoughts.

West tweeted that he “loves the way Candace Owens thinks” and later added that “self-victimization is a disease.”

Shania Twain Apologizes After Saying She Would Have Voted For Trump

Shania Twain Caves To Left-Wing Intimidation  

Leftists are taking Canadian singer Shania Twain to the woodshed.

Her crime? In an interview with the Guardian, she said that she would have supported President Donald J. Trump in the 2016 election, if she had been allowed to vote. She said she would have voted for Trump because he seems honest.

(March 2018) Survey Says: Politicized Sports, Entertainment Driving Viewers Away

ESPN isn’t just dying the death of a thousand chord cuts. Ratings for the Oscars aren’t down simply because the Academy keeps nominating movies nobody has seen.

And it wasn’t just a disappointing U.S. medal haul or NBC’s amateurish broadcast that drove Winter Olympics viewership down 24% compared to Sochi among viewers aged 18-49.

 Sure, those all may be contributing factors in dismal ratings for once-thriving networks and broadcasts. But we have more evidence that the relentless politicization of entertainment media is alienating audiences.

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say

Regardless if they help or harm their liberal causes, I wish they would keep their political opinions to themselves, instead of spewing them in interviews, on social media, and in You Tube videos.

This was written by Christian Toto, who I follow on Twitter:

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say 

Excerpts:

Hollywood celebrities once again are gearing up to advocate and agitate for their causes as elections approach, but political scientists and observers say liberal stars do as much to hurt as help their efforts.

…But in the wake of the failure of the full-scale industry push for Hillary Clinton in 2016, political observers are left to assess whether Hollywood’s progressive campaigns do more to mobilize liberals or energize conservatives.

Numerous Accusations of Sexual Harassment and Misconduct by Democratic Party Backer Movie Producer Harvey Weinstein

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):
