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):

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

This is an on-going list. Any time I see a famous person who comprehends that it’s really stupid to unnecessarily offend about half the country (and it’s almost always liberal celebrities trashing right wing people or people with conservative religious beliefs) I want to add such examples to this post.

(I may also post examples of celebrities who speak up in disagreement with liberal celebrities and directors on other matters.)

Just to get started:

Mel Brooks (actor, director, comedian):

Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Is it Fall 2017 already? I first started these Conservative Derangement / Trump Derangement Syndrome posts around January 2017.

In some cases, liberal celebrities don’t just bash Trump, they bash anyone who voted for Trump.

As fall melts into winter, I will edit this post to add any new anti-Trump or Conservative Derangement comments or behavior by celebrities.

Chrissy Tiegen | September 2017

All I know is that she is supposedly a celebrity, but I don’t know who she is. I’m not sure if she is an actress or a model or what.

Chrissy Tiegen makes it known that when she slams the president, she’s NOT just insulting Trump

Robert Redford (movie actor) | September 2017

Robert Redford to Esquire: Trump Is ‘Our Fault,’ Worse ‘Than Nixon’

by C Weaver, Sept 13, 2017

Starring in movies about politics allegedly gives celebrities a political background. At least, that’s what Robert Redford thought in his latest interview.

The actor spoke with Esquire’s Michael Hainey in an interview published on September 13, where he talked about Nixon, Trump, and Mitch McConnell. …

On the subject of Donald Trump, Redford said, “I just think he is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault — that’s how I see it.”

Since he starred in All the President’s Men, Redford decided that he had enough political credibility to be able to compare Nixon to Trump: “Whatever Nixon was, whatever his dark side, he was an accomplished politician … I think on the other side, there’s more ignorance.”

Danny Zucker (TV producer) | September 2017

WOW: Modern Family producer tweets ‘Dear Christians … f*ck you’ over DACA , deletes tweet

It seems like DACA has brought out the ugliest (and most hilarious) deleted tweets from our ‘friends’ on the Left. Suppose that’s what happens when your whole set of political ideals is based on emotion rather than fact or reality.

Like this winner from Danny Zuker, producer of Modern Family:

[Tweet said:]

@DunnyZucker

Dear Christians, if you support @realdonaldtrump’s decisin to end DACA your Christianity is bullshit. But on the other hand fuck you. 9/3/17, 10:13 PM

/// end Tweet

Guess Danny doesn’t think Christians watch his show? Or maybe he just doesn’t want them to.

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Excerpts:

Some on the left say no.

Not content with harassing white people who wear their hair in cornrows and branding as “cultural appropriation” everything from college cafés serving sushi to Beyoncé donning a sari, now the new racial purists are coming for film director Kathryn Bigelow.

Her crime? She’s a white woman.

More specifically, she’s a white woman who dared to tell the story of the 1967 Detroit riots in her latest movie.

It’s wrong for whites to tell black stories, apparently, because they can never truly understand those stories. It’s a profoundly philistine argument that exposes the misanthropy of the racial thinking that passes for radical commentary these days.

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

August 30, 2017

I think that O’Dowd needs to take personal responsibility for his public comments and actions – whether in interviews and social media or where ever else – as even the cop character he played in the film “Bridesmaids” was telling another character in one scene she ought to do, but he seems happier to brush off or ignore criticisms in real life.

The picture I’m getting is that O’Dowd does not want to accept personal responsibility for any offensive or terrible things he Tweets or has said in interviews (he has insulted people of faith in interviews, insulted all religion in general, and periodically insults conservatives or Republicans on his Twitter account).

I found out today I was blocked by O’Dowd on Twitter. I suppose he blocked me either yesterday or today – probably today, though I’m not sure.

O’Dowd is apparently not as nice and friendly as the media keep saying he is.

However, that is something I’ve come to discern over the last year or two after reading more of his interviews, which came as a surprise at first, because I was expecting him to be as nice in real life as the character he played in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie.

I’m not sure exactly which tweet of mine set O’Dowd off that caused him to block me. Or, maybe it was a combination Tweets?

(Maybe it was this Aug 24 Tweet where I said I had no plans of watching his “Get Shorty” show, as he slams conservatives on his Twitter page and is an anti-theist?)

I’ve only blogged about O’Dowd a few times on my blog. I’ve never tweeted to him or at him, however. I’ve never threatened him or harassed him. I’m harmless. I’m just a person with a blog and some opinions.

Even though O’Dowd has blocked me, by logging out of Twitter, I can still go back to his page and read it, if I so choose.

I didn’t have plans of visiting O’Dowd’s Twitter page on a regular basis, only to check back over this next week or so to see if he’s done any charity work on behalf of Texans displaced by Hurricane Harvey, but no, he has not.

I would guess O’Dowd periodically checks for his name on Twitter, under the hash tag system – because I was hash tagging his name to the Tweets I made where I linked to my few blog posts about him?

I’ve only blogged about this guy a handful of times on my blog here.

I have never used O’Dowd’s Twitter handle to talk to him personally or to leave him comments.  (Until today, when I sub-tweeted his Melania Trump bashing tweet here, but this was after he blocked me.)

(By the way, even though O’Dowd blocked me, I did not block him.)

Excerpts:

August 29, 2017

By Sasha Savitsky

The wife of late “Gone With the Wind” actor Fred Crane is outraged over a Memphis theater’s decision to ban the film for its racially “insensitive” content.

Terry Lynn Crane told Fox News she was “very, very disturbed” when she heard the historic Orpheum Theatre decided to stop showing “Gone With the Wind” after hosting the classic 1939 film for 34 years.

“By making a statement, they are trying to make a problem,” Crane told us. “They are inciting racial division and it’s only escalating.”

Actor Chris O’Dowd Silent on Hurricane Harvey Victims but Not Islamic Migrants

Actor Chris O’Dowd Silent on Hurricane Harvey Victims but Not Islamic Migrants – Also: Would O’Dowd Mock Singer Beyonce For Her Religious Beliefs and Practices?


Where to Donate to (Hurricane) Harvey Victims (and How to Avoid Scams) – New York Times

And, update, August 30, 2017: I can only guess it was this very post that motivated O’Dowd to Block me on Twitter?


A year of more ago, actor Chris O’Dowd and his wife, Dawn O’Porter, were using their social media to promote charities related to Islamic migrants – they were trying to raise funds to help Muslims who were migrating to Europe.

Like most all liberals, they are too politically correct to notice or admit that a percentage of these migrants consist of young, single men, and ones who, when they arrive at their destinations, rape or grope European women or little boys.

See these links (you can find more examples than this if you google for them):

–   ‘Just wait…’ Islamic State reveals it has smuggled THOUSANDS of extremists into Europe

–   Germany’s Migrant Rape Crisis Spirals out of Control

–  ‘Easy Meat.’ Britain’s Muslim Rape Gang Cover-Up

 (Muslim) Migrant who admitted raping a 10-year-old boy at an Austrian swimming pool because of a ‘sexual emergency’ has his sentence cut and will soon be free

O’Dowd’s favorite atheist, Richard Dawkins, got in trouble some time ago for making critical comments about Islam, by the way:

New Atheist Richard Dawkins Dis-Invited to Speak by Liberal Berkeley Radio Station for Criticizing Islam

As much as I dislike Dawkins (specifically, his manner of promoting his atheism, which tends to be arrogant and obnoxious), I do believe Dawkins is at least correct in mentioning the dangers posed by extremist Islam, which is more than I can say for O’Dowd and a majority of liberals and anti- Trump Republicans, who remain in denial about it (or silence, due to political correctness).

Contrary to what O’Dowd seems to believe (from what I saw of his Tweets on the subject), Muslim migrants to Europe or the U.S.A. are not the same thing as 20th century Irish immigrants to the United States, as I discussed in another post earlier (under the section about Pence).

At any rate, O’Dowd’s wife, O’Porter, kept tweeting links and things a year or more ago, asking readers to donate funds to help buy food or supplies for Islamic migrants coming into Europe. At that time, O’Dowd re-tweeted a few of his wife’s Tweets about charity efforts for Islamic migrants.

Here we are days after Hurricane Harvey hit the south east region of Texas, causing loss of life and a lot of damage, and I don’t see anything at all by O’Dowd or his wife, O’Porter, on their respective Twitter pages or Instagram.

As of today, Aug 29, 2017 (Tuesday), the last tweet I see by O’Dowd is some jovial, goofy animated GIF of him, and that Tweet is dated August 24.

Edit: As of today, August 30, the latest Tweet I see by O’Dowd is this August 29 Tweet, (see screen capture below) where he is making fun of first lady, Melania Trump, for the clothing she is wearing. He makes no mention in that Tweet or any other ones of how people can send money to charities that are helping people hurt by the hurricane and flooding.

Above: August 30, 2017 screen capture taken of an Aug 29, 2017 Tweet by actor Chris O’Dowd mocking first lady Melania Trump for her clothing, as she travels to Texas during the aftermath or Hurricane Harvey. This is the only mention or allusion to Hurricane Harvey this actor has made on his Twitter account to date. (When other celebrities, such as Kevin Hart and Sandra Bullock, are using their celebrity to raise money or send money to hurricane victims)

As of today, Aug 29, O’Dowd’s wife has tweeted several jokey tweets (example, example, example, and here is her first Tweet from Aug 25), but no mention of asking readers to send money to the Red Cross or any other charities, to help Texans who have been misplaced or lost their homes due to the storm.

And (edit here), as of August 30, O’Dowd’s wife, who was so keen to help Islamic migrants to Europe, has also not Tweeted anything in response to Hurricane Harvey, like asking her followers to donate funds to Red Cross or anything.  Today, she made this tweet where she seems to be promoting a book she wrote (or a book by one of her friends?).

Scrolling through O’Porter’s Twitter timeline, looking down Tweets she has made since August 24 and on-wards, I don’t see any mention of Hurricane Harvey at all.
