Weinstein

Weinstein is a Liberal.

With that out of the way I can post this topic in the Politics/Religion section. The topic of what's going down in Hollywood right now is pretty entertaining.
(finally because the hollywood movies as of late suck more than the actresses! )
The hypocrisy, denial, finger pointing and stories will surely make for a great inevitable documentary.

I have to be honest and say I don't feel sorry for anyone caught up in this. I dont feel sorry for the actresses that chose to have sex in order to get a multimillion dollar role or launch their career, I dont feel sorry for Harvey being caught, and certainly dont feel sorry for anyone close to him that chose to keep quite about it.

People have choices, and it seems that they will do (apparently) anything for fortune and fame.

I'm very curious about all the ones that arn't speaking out. We've heard from the ones that turned down the advances in exchange for roles (so there was a choice!?), but it leaves me wondering which current big stars are where they are because (insert big producers name) made a deal with them for the role. For everyone who turned it down how may (and who) said yes?

The stories online name some pretty big names, and I read that Chris Hanley told his former classmates that "almost every leading actress in all of his 24 films has slept with a director or producer or a leading actor to get the part that launched her career".

Anyone here feel sorry for anyone involved?

Certainly the girls that said they were raped get a pass and I'll feel sorry for. Everyone else made their own bed IMO.

Great thread! I'm interested in seeing the response from those who lean more left on this issue. The silence has been deafening from certain circles, thus far.

I'm also interested in seeing how the money is handled. Mrs. Clinton was silent for 6 days and still hasn't said that she would return the money, from what I've seen. I believe that it will be laundered by giving it to groups who stand for women's issues who will then donate it back to the respective group/politician after a brief hold. This is how that BS works. Any person/organization who took money from that walking chancre sore should write him a check or be tagged as complicit in his behavior.

Keep on defending this guy:

FWIW, I've never gone onto this forum and tried to extoll the virtues of the great Harvey Weinstein. I've never started a thread to discuss what a wonderful candidate for the President of the United States he was.

On the other hand, the right-wingers on this forum have been frothing at the mouth to present Trump as the best person to represent their views. Here are his words:

It starts with a P.

This is how business is done is sleazy as fuck Hollywood. It's not like Weinstein is the only asshole to pull this shit. You can be rest assured that this is going on in Hollywood as we speak.

Not defending Mr. Trump. Asking you to stick to the subject and stop deflecting from the actual problem: Mr. Weinstein and the massive coverup of his heinous behavior.

Don't bring him up. Talk about Mr. Weinstein and his relationship to the left.

You always talk about deflecting. This thread is about Weinstein, not Trump.

Yet in previous posts, the 3 of you, San, Mk, eff3, you have carried water for Trump. How can you rationalize being ok with Trump's behavior, yet you condemn the behavior of Weinstein?

No but for Hollywood this type is stuff is the norm it's been going on since the beginning. And like I said you have to be delusional to think he's the only one doing this shit. Of course then you have the self proclaimed Hollywood women's rights championship who know this shit goes on but keep silent about it.

No it doesn't. Serious question: Are you personally acquainted with Mr. Weinstein?

It has been going on forever, and IMO it will never stop.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casting_couch

Purely for from the entertainment standpoint if Weinstein is getting called out along with all the other predatory producers etc, then I hope that all the actresses who chose to sleep their way to the top get called out too.

Honestly its a two sided problem no matter what the feminists say. I have friends with money that have had woman throw themselfs at in the most blatant, scandalist and predatory way was well.

BTW Anyone on either political spectrum pointing at the other side about the shitty people "on their side" has zero argument. Weinstein is a pig, an so it Trump. Politics have zero to do with it.

I have to disagree with you here. The DNC purports to be the party of equality in all things, especially women's rights. Mr. Weinstein has donated about $1.5 million USD to Democratic politicians, individually and the DNC collectively. This is squarely in the realm of politics.

Is it okay for Americans to call your president a pig? Fortunately, haven't seen anyone do that.

The clintons said they would give the 250k to charity. Tick tock...
Nevermind. We spent it helping people around the world. Look it up.
Sad pack of people.

Weinstein is probably a marked man. Too many stories in that brain of his that people don't want coming out.


Sum:
Post that weinstein is a disgusting person.
Go on, do it. I say you can't.
