List of Weinstein accusations grows

October 11, 2017

As powerful Hollywood mogul and Democratic fundraiser Harvey Weinstein (who said in 2009, “Hollywood has the best moral compass”) jets off to Europe for sex rehab to try to learn how to be a decent human being, new allegations are quickly coming to light.

The New York Times reports that since their expose shattered the Cone of Silence (or fear) that long protected him, four more women have come forward to allege sexual assault (unwanted touching) while three accuse him of rape. Even some famous women such as Miro Sorvino, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Rosanna Arquette have finally spoken up to allege creepy advances toward them, and Weinstein’s wife announced that she’s leaving him. The New Yorker even obtained a tape of a 2015 sting operation in which Weinstein allegedly attempts to coerce a young model into his hotel room, but the police didn’t think it was strong enough evidence to bring charges.

Both Weinstein’s activities and the long silence about them have become hot topics in conservative circles. From Herman Cain to Donald Trump to Bill O’Reilly, any allegation of sexual misconduct against a conservative, no matter how suspect, was immediately accepted as true by Hollywood celebrities who mercilessly pilloried the alleged perpetrator. But now we find that one of the most powerful liberal figures in Hollywood was allegedly doing this for decades, and it was widely known, but nobody “spoke truth to power.”

To be fair, it’s hard to blame them for not speaking up when it might have meant the end of their careers. Not many people have that strong a moral compass. But they could at least have enough morals not to posture as moral leaders and congratulate themselves on having the best moral compass in the world when their compass only points at other people.

Fear might excuse their silence. Nothing excuses their selective morality.

    I agree. Money talks. No telling what all goes on in the Hollywood crowd. Really shameful and worse when kids are involved.

    My thoughts go to a Jewish carpenter who tangled with some of the most vicious haters the world has ever seen. Everyone should remember His warning that everything will be made known and shouted from the rooftops. If nothing else, let that frightening thought guide everyone's actions.

    Only by reading the Bible and put it into practice, can you have a strong moral compass!

    I wonder if he's planning to hide in Europe in case anyone seeks to arrest and charge him? Maybe the next Democrat in the White House will pardon him so he can come back without going to jail. ala Mark Rich
