You know those esteemed Hollywood types; for them, it’s all about the children. Except, of course, when the victim is a child. And the victim was raped. And the rapist is one of their own.
You may want to break out the duct tape for this one. Allahpundit has the aneurysm-inducing story:
Note well: No matter what the LA Times would have you believe, he’s not an “accused” child-rapist. He pled guilty. The conviction’s on the books. All that’s left to settle is the sentence.
But Hollywood knows a good cause when it sees it.
The surprise detention of Roman Polanski has been met with indignation in Hollywood and sparked a flurry of media speculation over the real reason behind Saturday night’s arrest in Zurich.
Film mogul Harvey Weinstein has got behind a campaign by French film-makers calling on US authorities not to extradite the Oscar-winning Polish director in connection with a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor dating back more than three decades…
Hey guys, what’s the big deal? Polanski only drugged and raped a 13-year old girl . .
The film uncovered flaws in the legal case against the director, prompting Weinstein to allude to a possible campaign to get the charges against Polanski dropped. At a hearing this year a Los Angeles superior court judge agreed there was “substantial misconduct” in the original hearing.
If there was substantial misconduct, why not come back to LA and litigate the matter at an appellate level? Answer: Because Polanski and his cretinous supporters don’t care if he’s guilty or not. They want him to walk free, in the name of “art,” without another word spoken on the subject.
Sadly, this scumbag Weinstein is the driving force behind Clerks (as well as the Jay and Silent Bob series) and most of Quentin Tarantino’s films. Wow.
