Dirty Old Harvey

Called out for decades of alleged sexual harassment, Harvey Weinstein pivots and attacks the NRA and Trump.

On Thursday, The New York Times published an article exposing allegations of “decades of sexual harassment accusations” against the famous leftist Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The Times revealed that Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women who brought allegations of sexual harassment.

Weinstein has a long history of donating to Democrats and has hosted fundraisers for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Publicly, Weinstein has been celebrated as a champion of women, but it appears that in his personal life he has often done just the opposite, using his position of power to abuse women.

After the Times released the story, Weinstein issued an odd and seemingly contradictory statement in which he denied “many of the accusations as patently false,” and yet he offered an apology for “the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past,” adding that he will be taking a leave of absence “to learn about myself and conquer my demons.” Make of that what you will, but it may help to consider his immediate pivot to attack … the NRA and Donald Trump.

Weinstein said, “I am going to need a place to channel that anger, so I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope [NRA executive vice president] Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. I’m going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. I’m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party.” Let’s see, shift attention to that which the Left loves to hate and hope your fellow leftists give you a pass and this whole nasty story goes away. It’s this kind of thinking that has enabled his continued poor behavior over the decades.
