Hollywood’s Complicity in the Weinstein Scandal

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 20, 2017

The rich and famous in Hollywood make a habit of lecturing America on values.  Most often these values are Progressive and far left of center in a political context.  The recent outing of one of Hollywood most significant elitist, Harvey Weinstein as a serial sex predator demonstrates hypocrisy in that wealthy community.

Inappropriate behavior is not limited to any political view.  It is an equal opportunity affliction.  However, Hollywood’s cone of silence and cover-up to protect Weinstein over many years is an indication of deep-seated dishonesty within that community.  The fact that Hollywood’s strong Leftist’s leanings that include suppose concern for women’s rights were trumped to protect one of its own is deeply troubling.

Since the Weinstein scandal went public, the number of women who claim to have been mistreated by the movie mogul over many years continually increases.  The sheer number involved, many who are now powerful figures, make it difficult to understand how this cover-up occurred.  More troubling are the number of Hollywood males who were aware of Weinstein’s proclivities and only did not go public, but heaped praise on Weinstein for years.  This group includes famed Quentin Tarantino who admitted to the New York Times that “I knew enough to do more than I did.

Tarantino’s confession is too little, too late.  It will be followed by many others from Hollywood elitists.  Without their complicity, many young women would have been spared trauma caused by one of their own.

Hypocritical Hollywood Producer Weinstein Rant Concerning Guns

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 20, 2014

Pulp FictionBig-time Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein once again demonstrates the hypocrisy of the radical Left.  Weinstein’s films include ultra-violent hits such as: Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill (Vol. 1 and 2), Rambo and more recently the Django Unchained, all that glorify violence and killings in most also guns

While Weinstein has made millions promoting guns and violence in his films that has not stopped him from attacking gun ownership for Americans.  During a radio interview last week on Howard Stern’s show Weinstein went on an anti-gun rant saying “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it. I think the NRA is a disaster area,” and “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this issue head on.  And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them”. Left unsaid by Weinstein is how he plans to bring the NRA and its members to their demise.

During the interview Howard Stern took Weinstein to task concerning some inconsistencies relating to his previous comments concerning when gun ownership would be appropriate, for example, for Jews to defend themselves during the Holocaust; “when you’re marching a half of a million people into Auschwitz.”  Unfortunately, Weinstein seems to have forgotten or two be ignorant of the fact that Germany used its laws to confiscate guns from Jews prior to marching them off to the death camps.  Weinstein is either a fool or has lost any sense of reality from his long association with Hollywood.  Or maybe it is just politics given Weinstein’s significant backing of Barack Obama.  Whatever his excuse, Weinstein is clearly a hypocrite.
