Hollywood Hypocrisy on Weinstein Is Off the Charts

From celebrities who kept quiet or even helped Weinstein to Democrats who now funnel his money to help themselves.

By now everyone knows the basic allegations against longtime Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. After The New York Times exposed “decades of sexual harassment accusations” last week, The New Yorker turned up the heat yesterday with three allegations of actual rape. (That’s after NBC News inexplicably passed on the scoop.) And while Weinstein was the primary villain, The New Yorker adds this: “A female executive with the company described how Weinstein assistants and others served as a ‘honeypot’ — they would initially join a meeting, but then Weinstein would dismiss them, leaving him alone with the woman.” In other words, he had accomplices.

Aside from the actual alleged crimes committed by Weinstein, a sick man whose wife has left him and who’s now in Europe for sex addiction therapy, the primary theme here is hypocrisy.

Hypocrisy from those in Hollywood who knew about Weinstein’s behavior without speaking up (or, worse, who aided him), all while advancing the Left’s “war on women” nonsense as if Republicans are the real villains. And hypocrisy from Democrats who happily lined their own pockets with donations from Weinstein while politically advancing that same phony narrative.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama stand out, though we do note that, nearly a week after the story broke, both were finally shamed into speaking out against Weinstein. Obama’s daughter Malia interned for Weinstein, and the movie mogul raised millions of dollars for Democrats and Obama specifically. No wonder it took him a week to say anything about being “disgusted by the recent reports.”

As for Clinton, who made the bizarre assertion that Trump was a creep in the second presidential debate, she was “shocked and appalled” by the allegations. She did not — on record, anyway — fault Weinstein’s accusers for “bimbo eruptions” as with the women who accused her husband of rape. Maybe she’s too busy coping with Chardonnay.

A final note: Rather than simply return Weinstein’s money and wash their hands of the affair, Democrats are essentially laundering the money to leftist organizations like Emily’s List that work to elect Democrats.
