By Gerome Roa:
It was last Thursday when the news about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s’ sexual assault scandal broke out and I wrote about it for the Trump Times(see A Pervert by Any Other Name is still a Pervert-Oct 7).
Apparently mega-producer, Harvey Weinstein has been abusing women left and right, bringing them up to his hotel room for a massage or a sexual encounter for the past 20 years or so.
Many women, including Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, have now stepped forward accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexually assaulting them years ago when they were in their 20s.
The silence from the left has been deafening that a lot of Hollywood A-listers are being outed to step up and slowly they did.
From Ben Affleck to Leonardo De Caprio to Cate Blanchett. The avalanche of response is coming out timidly but steadily as if they are forced to respond with guns in their heads.
Jimmy Kimmel has not joked about Weinstein in his monologues. Whoopie Golberg and Joy Behar are tight-lipped. SNL did not do a joke about Harvey because Lorne Michael, the show’s producer, said “it’s a NewYork thing, whatever that means!
And where is George Clooney?
The left, who believes they are the moral voice of the country, seems to be giving this sexual maniac a pass because he is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood who can make or break a career.
As the Harvey Weinstein scandal is exploding in the media, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the supposed champion of women’s rights, equality and opportunity have been silent.
Where is her voice now? Where is her pledge to defend women against violence? Is she silent because Harvey Weinstein donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to her campaign chest? Is she silent because democrats defend democrats? Or is she silent because she is a hypocrite?
Hillary Clinton is the epitome of deceit. falseness and insincerity. Of pretense and duplicity. Quintessential hypocrisy.
And that is why she lost the election to Donald Trump.
