WASHINGTON, October 17, 2017 — In case you’ve been living in a cave without access to radio or TV, Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein has suddenly become a global pariah.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just ejected Weinstein as a member, as did France’s prestigious Legion of Honor.
It seems every woman that has ever come in contact with Harvey Weinstein is speaking out to the press and talking to social media. Their collective opinion of Weinstein is not positive.
Weinstein made millions of dollars for his production company and various movie studios. And, as it happens, many a Democratic Party politician benefited greatly from Harvey’s generosity.
If Hollywood and Washington’s movers and shakers had Harvey’s back, it was because his money bought their silence; his substantial influence bought their fear.
Hollywood has hammered one single theme into the heads of Americans: corporations are heartless entities that “put profits ahead of people.” But, as it turns out, Hollywood is the quintessential corporate entity after all.
Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, we heard and witnessed prominent Democrats engaging in a lot of “virtue signaling.”
Hillary Clinton even claimed that average Americans, who were repelled by her craven venality and who regarded her as wholly unsuitable to serve as the nation’s chief executive, were “deplorables.”
Mega-millionaire actor and Clinton supporter George Clooney said America rejected Mrs. Clinton because we were
“…angry – angry at ourselves, angry at the way the country is going, angry at the way the world is going… It’s probably the angriest I have ever seen the country… There is a dark cloud hanging over our country right now.”
Your analysis was a little vague, Georgie.
The truth is, we were “angry” at thick-headed thespians and the inhuman impresario enablers of evil. Angry at the disgusting entertainment industry creeps who, like you and Harvey Weinstein, worked so diligently to put another predatory Clinton in the White House.
Entertainment’s men and women put their profits, boorish behavior and monumental arrogance ahead of people – the American people.
In rejecting Hillary Clinton, we rejected you.
Hollywood once celebrated American exceptionalism in films seen around the world. Hollywood encouraged that world to hold fast against totalitarian dictators like Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Hideki Togo. Now Hollywood has degenerated into a promoter of anti-American bilge and soulless “art.”
Which may explain why Hollywood types routinely bristle upon hearing the slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
