Shocking. A Hollywood studio mogul and massive democratic donor exposed for serial sexual harassment and all we hear from the media and Hollywood are crickets? Jimmy Kimmel, where are you? Hillary, speak to us? Michelle Obama, you praised him at the White House, where is your statement? And Lisa Bloom, the attorney who represents virtually every woman with a harassment complaint including O'Reilly, why are you representing this man as his counsel? Don't you detest powerful men who trade influence for sexual favors?
Hillary, Bill and dozens of the many other leftists who have taken BIG BUCKS from Weinstein over the years, yet who claim to be feminists and strong supporters of women, had to have known about this for years!
Yet because he was on their team, they all ignored it, even though they all seemed to know of it, just at they ignored Bubba's and Teddy Kennedy's philandering and sexual assaults on women, often using the power of their offices to do so.
JFK, Bobby, Teddy, Bubba and a very long list of other Dems were serial sexual predators who over and over and over again USED women as sexual toys.
Yet the left loves them all and worships them because they were supposedly great on women's issues.
I guess that's true as long as killing women (Mary Jo Kopechne), you were hoping to have sex with then leaving them to drown while you called your attorney raping them (Juanita Broaddrick), or getting blow jobs from lowly interns (Monica Lewinsky) when you were the most powerful man in the world comprises 'being great on women's issues' is what you consider as being pro-feminist.
Not surprised at all. The mayor of Seattle raped and molested multiple underage boys. He stayed mayor for months the Libs didn’t care until the 5th accuser came forward. $100 says he gets a job with some liberal donor.
And Hillary is a whore for POWER. She's a MUCH bigger whore than Monica ever was on her worst day. All Monica wanted was some attention from the Head Horndog. Hillary sold her and her daughter's dignity just to be on Bill's coattails because that's the ONLY way she could have become Senator, acquire VAST wealth, and run for POTUS.
As we speak, the NY Times and other far-left comrades in the 4th branch of government, are busy trying to help the democratic socialists of amerika save face by willfully instigating an emergency campaign to get all leftist politicians to return Weinstein contributions ASAP.
Weinstein was fired from his own company. He'll be a pariah as he should be. Trump? The guy that walked in on 18 year olds and bragged about kissing married women and grabbing pu#*y's? He's a hero to most of you! Now what's that about hypocrisy again?
Whatsa matter God-denier? Gettin hot in here???....ha ha ha...can you hear OZZY'S best satanic laugh? Trump may have been a bit caddish and Frat boyish and is imperfect like us all, but YOUR side has rapists, sexual assaulters, child molesters, murderers, traitors. Hollywood is on the run and this is HILARIOUS....the gift that Keeps on giving!! The matriarch, Meryl Streep is SWEARING...."we didn't ALL know about Harvey!" Ok..Babe..whatever helps you'll assuage the guilt.....Mad Dog
1) it was the liberal media that exposed Weinstein. The NY Times broke the story. 2) the right wing media covered for predator trump. 3) where was the right wing outrage when Ailes and O'Reilly harassed a number of women and paid them settlements? Point? You can't stand being a hypocrite. I understand.
Nva, your reading comprehension is slipping. Notice above where I mentioned that it was The NY Times that broke the story. And the 'liberal media' that caused him to be outed then fired. Right wingers worked overtime trying to justify O'reillys actions. Even here. Most likely by you.
Weinstein is a piece of crap, and the Hollywood liberals should be denouncing him, and so should the Hollywood conservatives - there are a few of them too. However, if you think this is the Mt Everest of hypocrisy, then you must have missed the whole Tim Murphy story. I'm embarrassed that the guy has an Irish name.
Everybody has known about him for years. Last night FOX News played a clip of an awards show back in 2013. The male presenter of a female actress award made the comment "These 5 women no longer have to look attractive for Weinstein." The laughter from the crowd was VERY reserved and VERY awkward.....
The latest is an actual tape of Weinstein trying to lure a teenage actress into his room. He admitted grabbing her breast the day before. The tape and story was brought to NBC news and they declined it.
If this doesn't lay bear the cabal between the left wing media, Hollywood and democratic elites nothing will.
Here's Hollywood CELEBRATING the CHILD RAPIST Roman Polanski in 2003. This scumbag raped a THIRTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL when he was 43. He gave her quaaludes and alcohol and then raped her. These people have no soul, no conscience, no morals. They are literally sh*t. Weinstein fits right in with them. Modern day carnies.
Where I came from if someone like Polanski came back he would NOT be celebrated like some kind of hero. They'd probably find his remains in a gully somewhere....if the coyotes and crows left anything.
by PAM KEY11 Oct 20171,776 Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while discussing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s ever-expanding sexual harassment allegations, NBC’s Megyn Kelly said one of her “main takeaways from 2016” was that we as women had “a long way to go.”
Kelly said, “One of my main takeaways from 2016, everything that happened in that campaign, is that we as women have a long way to go, a long way to go. And this is further evidence of that — you know, it’s like how many of these do we have to go through before industries become introspective? Why did the press have to break this? Why wasn’t it someone at the Weinstein Company?”
“If they didn’t know, why didn’t they know?” she continued. “How many more do we have to go through? How many women is it happening to right now until we can affect a real sea change? We might be at the beginning of that, but I don’t think we’re even close to the middle.”
Harvey gets popped. He loses his company and is investigated. Lindsey Lohan is the only one supporting him at this point. Trump gets exposed as a sexual predator and y'all voted for him for President. I would say that both situations are disgusting and that the hypocrisy is on the folks that support Trump to this day and Lindsey Lohan.
Megan Kelly nailed it on this one. Woman are dealing with a lot of pigs, and we have a long way to go with regards to entitled rich men using their power to use and abuse women.
Some men are pigs, yes. But no one here knows women who would shamelessly climb the ladder of success and fortune by "grasping" the sexual "rungs" on the ladder?! The bottom line is some men are immoral pigs and some women are perfectly happy to use that tendency if it benefits themselves.
Of course, when you're a partisan fool, the term "grabbed women by the pussy" is considered evidence of sexual harassment. Yet, "grabbed him by the balls" is a figure of speech. Those without anything but partisan blinders and no capacity for rational thought will jump to conclusions without actual evidence.
Perhaps a month without weed might clear one's brain. In this case, highly unlikely.
I love how Most of the right thinks that liberals are going to defend Harvey Weinstein simply because he is a liberal himself. That's not how it works. When an American does something wrong, we hold them accountable. You should do the same for trump. He said himself that he grabs them by the youknowwhat. Those are his words. He was seen walking into dressing rooms with young girls to see what 'the talent looks like'. Those are his words. A sexual assault is a sexual assault.
Deadline, Variety, Hollywood Reporter Circle Wagons to Protect ‘Buttman’ Ben Affleck
Good faith searches reveal that, as of this writing, nowhere on the home page of either Variety, Deadline, or the Hollywood Reporter will you find a headline with the words “Ben” or “Affleck.” How is this possible in a news cycle where Hollywood’s Batman is being dubbed “Buttman” due to a whole new round of groping allegations? On Wednesday, after Affleck apologized to actress Hilarie Burton for a groping incident in 2003, another groping allegation surfaced, this one from 2014, this one from make-up artist Annamarie Tendler, who wrote: “I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014.” She added more details:
Annamarie Tendler ? @amtendler Replying to @amtendler He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. Follow Annamarie Tendler ?@amtendler I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back? 1:23 PM - Oct 11, 2017 38 38 Replies 618 618 Retweets 2,295 2,295 likes
This allegation resulted in television writer Jen Stacy accusing Affleck of groping a number of women that night: “I was also at this party and *multiple* friends had this same exact experience[.]”
And thus the nickname “Buttman” was born.
Important point: These allegations surround the year 2014, that was only three years ago…
So why would the same Hollywood new outlets that are breathlessly covering every detail of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, circle the wagons to protect Affleck?
The answer is quite simple: Harvey Weinstein’s time has passed. The 65 year-old is reportedly in serious financial trouble, has not had a hit in nearly five years, and has not won anyone an Oscar in that same amount of time.
Harvey Weinstein is no longer useful to anyone, so scores are being settled. If he was still useful, his predations would be allowed to continue unchallenged.
Moreover, outlets like Deadline, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter will not make any advertising money from Weinstein. Oscar season is Black Friday to these outlets. Weinstein no longer fills these coffers.
The same is not true for Affleck.
Not only is two-time Oscar-winner Affleck one of the hottest directors around, he is Hollywood’s freakin’ BATMAN — he is the tentpole holding up a tentpole, the Warner Brothers’ Justice League franchise, and what is probably a $250 million to $300 million investment that will hit thousands of screens in less than five weeks.
Does anyone believe Warners is not leaning hard on these entertainment news outlets to cover up these allegations, is not using all that Justice League advertising money as both carrot and stick?
And let us never forget that Affleck is a leftwinger, a lifelong Democrat. And when you think “correctly” there is nothing you cannot do, nothing our media will not cover up. Just ask Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton.
Bottom line: the same mentality that allowed Harvey Weinstein to get away with what he did for three decades, is still alive, kicking and protecting Buttman.
NBC News passed on a story by contributor Ronan Farrow that it allegedly possessed in August about three separate rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein that eventually appeared in the New Yorker Tuesday, according to a report.
It seems Weinstein's employment contract with his OWN COMPANY allowed for him to be guilty of sexual misconduct as often as he wanted as long as he paid a 'fine' to the company.
"Harvey Weinstein’s Contract With The Weinstein Company Basically Allowed For Sexual Harassment
Hannah Bleau (Red Dawn), October 12, 2017
I cannot believe this is real, but it totally, unequivocally is.
According to a report from TMZ, Harvey Weinstein’s company may have fired him ILLEGALLY. As it turns out, they had a contract which stated that he could be sued for sexual harassment REPEATEDLY as long as he covered the costs.
TMZ is privy to Weinstein’s 2015 employment contract, which says if he gets sued for sexual harassment or any other “misconduct” that results in a settlement or judgment against TWC, all Weinstein has to do is pay what the company’s out, along with a fine, and he’s in the clear.
Again. This was in an ACTUAL CONTRACT.
According to the contract, if Weinstein “treated someone improperly in violation of the company’s Code of Conduct,” he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, “You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance.” The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a “cure” for the misconduct and no further action can be taken. Translation — Weinstein could be sued over and over and as long as he wrote a check, he keeps his job.
In other words, Harvey Weinstein could win in a lawsuit against his OWN COMPANY. According to the contract, the Board of Directors could fire the perv if he was “indicted or convicted of a crime,” but as TMZ notes, “that doesn’t apply here.”
There’s another provision … he can be fired for “the perpetuation by you [Weinstein] of a material fraud against the company.”
The question … where’s the fraud?
Lance Maerov, the board member who negotiated Weinstein’s 2015 contract, said in an interview — and we’ve confirmed — the Board knew Weinstein had settled prior lawsuits brought by various women, but they “assumed” it was to cover up consensual affairs. The Board’s assumption does not constitute fraud on Weinstein’s part. And here’s the kicker. Even if Weinstein had committed fraud by not fully informing the Board of Directors, the contract says before he can be fired he has a right to mediation and if that doesn’t work, he’s entitled to arbitration. He got neither. He was summarily fired, and sources connected with Weinstein tell TMZ he was never given a specific reason.
A source connected with TWC tells TMZ, the company had a right to fire Weinstein if he didn’t notify the Board of Directors of settlements. We’re told there have been no settlements since the contract was signed, so it would seem this clause does not apply.
This is insane. The Weinstein Company knew about his pervy behavior all along. It was so expected it was placed in a contract."
