LOS ANGELES, October 9, 2017 — Hollywood liberals, you are all Harvey Weinstein. Every last of one of you is just as nihilistic, narcissistic, materialistic and parasitic as the Miramax Mauler. Your entire industry is a toxic mess of cultural degradation and moral perfidy.
Weinstein is not a shock to Hollywood culture. He is Hollywood culture. He is the rot eating at America’s fabric. He is you.
Hurricane Harvey’s behavior was known for decades. It was an open secret. Many people could have exposed this pervert rather than let him repeatedly expose himself to unsuspecting women. You gave him cover because of your ideological bigotry. You ignored that his behavior was not morally or legally right because you admired that his politics were on the pure left.
It was perfectly fine for him to grab women by their cans as long as he also wanted to grab men’s guns. It was totally acceptable for him to lack self-control because he was willing to push gun control.
It was completely allowable for him to control the Hollywood A-List as long as he donated to Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List.
Abusing heterosexual women was tolerated as long as he spoke out in favor of lesbians and gay men. Being a transatlantic predator was fine since he supported transgendered bathrooms.
Creating and maintaining a hostile work climate was totally inbounds as long as he promoted climate change. He was allowed to be a son of a bitch because he spoke about threats to Mother Earth.
Harvey Weinstein is you inside and out. You know that Harvey Weinstein is the naked tip of the sexual assault iceberg, but you will never say so. You care more about money and social status than human decency.
Even after he has been caught, you have learned nothing.
You on the late night comedy shows are less likely to want to touch Harvey Weinstein than his victims did. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Saturday Night Live are cowering under their desks like a Miramax intern trying to hide from the boss in the hopes he goes away.
Meryl Streep, who attacked Americans who watch football and mixed martial arts, has referred to Weinstein as God. When you belong to the church of Hollywood, it makes sense that your deity would be a serial sexual abuser.
Remember, you are the people who still love sexual predator Bill Clinton. You are the people who still love his enabler wife Hillary Clinton. You are the people who cheer with delight for Liz Warren. Like you, she is a rapacious capitalist in her personal life who demands that the masses embrace socialism. The nasty women are staying silent because they have zero moral courage.
You are Ashley Judd, who lambasted Donald Trump for alleged bad behavior toward others while still cowering before Harvey Weinstein, who directly accosted her.
You support people who have a complete indifference to human life because you have a complete indifference to human life. If the price is right and the power is sufficient, then the integrity can be thrown in the Tinseltown trash bin.
Let us not let your biggest enablers off of the hook. The New York Times did not break the Harvey Weinstein story in 2017. It had the story in 2003 and spiked it for 14 years. The paper billing itself as the world’s moral conscience allowed multiple women to be violated to protect their left coast ideological soulmate.
In your sick world, Vice President Mike Pence is the enemy. Mr. Pence is a devout Christian who you have mocked for refusing to be alone in a room with any woman other than his wife. After all, marital fidelity is so 19th century. His valuing human life as precious earns your scorn and derision while Harvey Weinstein treating women like cattle earns nary a peep.
If you in Hollywood truly want to be seen as members of the human species, do not let Mr. Weinstein be the end of this story. There are tons more like him infecting your places of what you insist is real work. Call them out as well. Name names. Demand that every wretched lecherous animal posing as a homo sapien face real consequences.
You will not do this because that would bring Hollywood to a grinding halt. Every one of you knows somebody who is abusing drugs, alcohol, women and anything their grubby hands can smoke, snort, or grope.
Society is decaying while you attack Normal America and throw yourselves lavish parties where you celebrate bathing in your own filthy excesses. All the red carpets and greenbacks will not wash away your yellow character.
Now you attack President Trump, but even that is phony. You were fine with him when he was earning millions of dollars for NBC and socializing with you at parties. When he ran for president as a Republican, you decided he was too immoral for your delicately naked sensibilities.
You stand for nothing that benefits this world. You contribute nothing positive to this world. You fly around in private jets while babbling about climate change. You live in gated communities with heavily armed private security while blathering on about gun control. You mock people who love their families while your own families are in shambles from your dreadful moral turpitude.
You claim to care about the powerless while letting the powerful run roughshod over them. You worship morally bankrupt individuals because it brings you financial security.
You knew what Harvey Weinstein always was, and you allowed him to thrive for your own economic and social gain. While he was trying to grab female posteriors, you were busy kissing his.
Harvey Weinstein is only a symptom. You are the disease.
The next time you give a smug speech at an awards show that only you care about, just remember the real truth. While you are speaking, your coworkers are abusing plenty of people. You know about it and are choosing to say and do nothing.
You are Harvey Weinstein, and he is you. Deep down, you are sickeningly fine with this.
