Hol­ly­wood, Hypocrisy & Har­vey

The Jewish Voice - - EDITORIAL -

While the slime from the seem­ingly never end­ing We­in­stein reve­la­tions ooze out to cover our print and news me­dia we watch in hor­ror as other equally vis­cous, foul smelling tales in­un­date us, lead­ing to what am­a­teur psy­chol­o­gists such as those in our old ju­nior high classes might have la­beled as, "The world go­ing nutso!" We have had to deal with the Las Ve­gas shoot­ings, the Kaeper­nick kneel­ing chronol­ogy, the North Korea threat, the drug over­dose epi­demic, the con­stant at­tacks on Pres­i­dent Trump, which in­clude the false claims of thou­sands of forth­com­ing deaths due to the re­vok­ing or dis­man­tling of Oba­maCare, the nat­u­ral dis­as­ters in Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida and the wild­fires in Cal­i­for­nia all part of the hys­te­ria over the the­ory of man­made global warm­ing can make one shut off the TV, can­cel news­pa­per sub­scrip­tions and just lock the front door to refuse to have any­thing to do with the out­side world.

Let's fo­cus on one of these to lessen the pain. We'll con­cen­trate on Har­vey We­in­stein. Sadly, this creepy, crawl­ing crim­i­nal is of Jewish de­scent. He named his Mi­ra­max cor­po­ra­tion af­ter his par­ents Miriam and Max. That's the last mo­ral thing he did. Af­ter that it was all down­hill with mon­strous prof­its and power which he used to cover his ma­ni­a­cal crimes against women. He was and prob­a­bly still is and will be a sex­ual preda­tor whose ha­tred for women was ev­i­denced by his phys­i­cal at­tacks on them us­ing his in­cred­i­ble wealth and en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try sta­tus as the means to uti­lize women, many al­ready stars in their own right as mere tools for his own pur­poses.

And his goal was not to ex­act sex­ual pleasures from these en­coun­ters. His ac­tions were more to show his ex­treme con­trol over them as vir­tual slaves and to prove as well, his vir­tual im­mu­nity from be­ing pros­e­cuted as a crim­i­nal per­vert and as a ghoul­ish preda­tor. He had the whole en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, the me­dia and the politi­cians in the palm of his hand. He paid off the Man­hat­tan Dis­trict At­tor­ney to lay off of him. Democrats, from those en­sconced in the White House down, were eat­ing out of his hand. He could do no wrong. The women glit­ter­atti crawled over him at any and all awards cer­e­monies. And that in­cluded some of his own vic­tims, as well.

When the NYT came out re­cently with the ex­plo­sive charges of his vast crimes against women, many in the movie in­dus­try said, "We knew it all along!" "He did it to me!" "It was ac­cepted as nor­mal. You know, the cast­ing-couch in­ter­view." But we ask merely, where were the Women's Lib­bers who were part and par­cel of the sex acts them­selves or merely look­ers on? And why did it take 6 days for Hil­lary Clin­ton to chime in stat­ing her hor­ror at the "ex­po­sure" of these facts? Didn't her Se­cret Ser­vice shom­rim not tell her of We­in­stein's back­ground when she was still in the WH and when she ac­cepted tens of thou­sands of his stained dol­lars for her cam­paigns? Why the feigned hor­ror-struck fa­cial and ver­bal ex­pres­sions of re­vul­sion from those who well knew of his sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of women? All we can say is that hypocrisy reigns among the high and mighty in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try and in the hal­lowed halls where our politi­cians slink in to wish away the plights of their con­stituents. Per­haps in the fu­ture, we'll all fol­low the rule, "If you see some­thing, say some­thing!" Do that even if it hurts.
