The Human Stain: Why the
Harvey Weinstein Story Is
Worse Than You Think

Weekly Standard, by Lee Smith

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/9/2017 10:56:48 AM

The New York Times last week broke the story of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s long record of sexual harassment. Actresses including Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd came forward to detail Weinstein’s depredations, and so did former employees of the man who founded one of the most important independent film companies of the last 30 years, Miramax. The details were so jarring and the trail of abuse so long, that it was impossible to read the story and not come away wondering: How did no one know what he was doing? But of course people knew about Harvey Weinstein. Like the New

Comments:
This is good and comprehensive, bringing in the collapse of journalism and the media, the Clintons, and a lot of other related matters.

Of course everyone knew - but everyone kept silent since they each got that little bit of preference or the job that they were actually seeking. Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing on Hollywood and the left.

Am the only one who noticed how this totally pointless and very lefty narcissistic Weinstein story has sucked all the wind out of the Las Vegas shooting?

Letting time lapse on the LV shooting gives a calming disinterest- a public opiate, you might say, to the leftist horror viciousness that is opening before our very eyes.

This is exactly how it works, folks. Just imagine if some right wing skin head had done the LV shooting- do you really believe Weinstein would be getting more than page 8 below the fold attention?

This story reminded me of something kinda funny: check out A Better Class of Losers by Randy Travis on Youtube.

Other than that, I suppose it´s nice that conservatives´ opinion of most of Hollywood has been so widely confirmed. But keep your expectations of any improvement low. :-)

It appears from the article that this little creep writer Lee Smith also knew the whole Weinstein story, and like all the rest of his buddies, just kept his mouth shut, did nothing, and let more victims be made any and every time Harvey Weinstein felt like bullying somebody. And if even a twerp like Lee Smith knew what was going on, why didn’t Lee Smith’s boss — the smarmy snarkmeister Bill Kristol —say something?

These guys are the scum of the earth. I worked in a company where it was common for managers to "prey" upon newly hired "babes" in the sales force. They would go to their graduation dinner and entice them by telling them (literally) that to get ahead they had to sleep with them. I had numerous trainees report the harassment and I would report it to my supervisor, per company policy, but nothing ever happened for years and years. Finally, one of them got into a situation with a woman who would not back down and the whole scheme unwound. Being the father of 2 daughters I would never have wanted them subjected to this. Many good people looked the other way but fortunately they paid the price in the end. Weinstein qualifies for scum of the earth lifetime membership and frankly will never change.

RE: No. 2, I reget to say, from my observations, the LV story has no place to go. When you have Steve Wynn saying this guy was as vanilla as one could imagine, there´s not a whole lot of story left. I believe the answers to the most prescient questions left with the last bullet fired.

How is Weinstein´s story any different from Bill Clinton´s, or Al Gore, or Eliot Spitzer?

They even awarded Clinton "Father of the Year" award after all his perversions were public.

Weinstein will grease the appropriate palms, spend time in "rehab" and re=appear as the next father of year award recipient.

I am glad he addressed the biggest elephant in the room, Bill Clinton. Which absolutely no one else from the left/enemedia or comments from lefties across the web are mentioning. Though they revel in accusing PT of everything and adding him to this list of predator/abusers.
Bill Clinton is the original high profile abuser of power and his wife was 100% in on protecting him and vilifying the women he abused.

Im sorry I have no sympathy for the whores Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, both spittle-flinging harridans who raked our ears with their screeches about how Normals were BAD people for voting for Trump because he made an off-color (albeit true) statement about the kinds of women that threw themselves at people like him.

Now we find out they had to do that very thing in order to get fame and money?

#11 and others: A bit off-topic, but the LV shooter´s motive is known; just not to us. The NSA records all phone calls in the USA and keeps them in a rolling 30-day archive. Some calls are kept beyond 30 days, obviously, depending on their content and interest. You can bet the CIA and FBI reviewed this guy´s calls as soon as they ID´d him. Now... it´s quite possible that he didn´t divulge his motivation or details of the attack - but you´ll note that the Sheriff has not mentioned the recordings, their review, and stated definitively that there is nothing there. Further, no reporters have asked about these NSA recordings. It would seem that the government and media do not want to focus any attention on what the NSA is doing. Further, if the calls DO reveal a motive, gov/media, etc., would have to reveal some source for the info... they may feel it´s easier and more convenient to keep repeating "no known motive."

Re the Las Vegas story, it was temporarily at a standstill pending the release of some real facts.

Threads here, there and everywhere across the internet are absolutely going nuts with some of the most wild-eyed conjecture I’ve seen in a long time.

It’s good to have a cooling off period, if that’s what this is. (I don’t agree that it is - we still mourn the terrible loss.) But waiting for facts is a better idea than making up our own scenarios out of precious little...

#22, there is unlikely to be "more facts".

The harsh reality is that, periodically, a nobody from nowhere does something really evil, really horrific, and there is and will be no real way to explain it other than an evil person did evil.

Folks are such bozos with their mandatory requirement that "there must be something being covered up". So, people will make up stuff from whole cloth, like has been done endlessly with the JFK assassination. There have to be dark forces pulling the strings, like in the movies. Except sometimes, there isn´t, sometimes the facts are simple and the motives are, and will forever remain, opaque.

People to unfathomable stuff every single day, but mostly it is ignored. When they do something unfathomable that is "big news", that is not permitted. There has to be some secret back story, cover up by the government.

Area 51, aliens, Kennedy assassination, Roswell, and now Las Vegas shooter.

No evidence has ever been presented confirming that Trump was a sexual abuser. The audio that was used only confirmed that he made a comment about "celebrities", but not about himself. It was mostly likely giving the questioner an answer he would like to hear. This is a common tactic in dealing with salacious-minded people. And the Megan Kelly accusation was purely innuendo which distorted the actual event - which was a harmless situation.

The sexually sick and abusive Bill Clinton should have been in the list. He is the grand pervert of them all.

The sexual revolution spawned these sick individuals and the left is proud of this moral corruption they promoted.

It is known that the island Bill Clinton visited, and perhaps frequented, made available sex with children. Why was Bill Clinton not concerned about this?/s

Re #24, yes. His comment was rhetorical - about “celebrities” - not personal.

I disagree that there won’t be more facts emerging on the Las Vegas story. “Voluminous” amounts of CCTV footage from all over the hotel property for four days must be reviewed and analyzed. Forensics. Autopsy results. The piecing together of other input from various persons who saw him during those four days. And much more.

Crime investigations don’t wrap up in hours or even days. They are not the “procedurals” we watch on TV. Not at all. They are detailed, tedious grinding affairs.

The immediate gratification types would rather spin off of the comments of others that are spun off the comments of yet others (and more than a few internet nutcases) than wait patiently to see what law enforcement comes up with.

"Just the facts, ma’am “ (and sir).

Looks like all the liberal movers and shakers that were connected to the liberal Democrats and the Obamas knew that the guy was a sexual abuser. So you have to wonder why the Obamas allowed their daughter Malia to be an intern for him?

It is a safe bet that Michelle asked Malia a lot of questions in the last couple of days.

It’s already been established that one of Hillary Clinton’s most trusted advisers, Sid Blumenthal, sent her anti-Israel articles, ideas and advice during her time as secretary of state. But the stream of anti-Israel advice received by Clinton was much more comprehensive. In the entire forced dump of Clinton’s emails, you will be hard pressed to find a single one sympathetic toward the Jewish state from any of the people she relied on. The negative, poisonous approach to Israel throughout this email expose shows the atmosphere that she had established around herself. These emails seem to demonstrate that a huge segment of

Many people seem shocked by claims from a former New York Times reporter who says the newspaper sat on her 2004 information exposing alleged sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Could the story behind the “Trump dossier” be the Rosetta Stone of Russian manipulation of our electoral process in 2016? There is a strong and justifiable suspicion that the dossier was the critical bit of evidence that persuaded the FISA Court to reverse itself and permit monitoring of American associates of Donald Trump. The dossier was originally begun as an opposition research project for Republican rivals of Trump, then funded by Democrats, and allegedly, finally funded by the FBI. We already know that some of the wild accusations in it were demonstrably false. The House Intelligence Committee long has been looking

Las Vegas authorities now acknowledge mass murderer Stephen Paddock may have been “radicalized” before his bloody rampage Sunday at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival but they won’t say what species of radicalism the shooter may have embraced. The deadliest mass shooting in modern American history has been cravenly transformed into anti-American propaganda by the Left, as Democrat commentators race to ghoulishly disparage white men, gun rights and the NRA, Republicans, and President Trump, blaming them for what otherwise looks like a Muslim terrorist atrocity. Islamic State continues to claim responsibility for the massacre. The terrorist group also claims Paddock converted

Stephen Miller is a survivor in President Trump’s White House. The young policy aide has solidified his influence, even as would-be allies such as Stephen Bannon have been forced out of the West Wing. In just the past month, he played a key role in developing the administration’s new travel ban, pushed Trump to scrap an Obama-era program for young immigrants living illegally in the U.S. and argued for a historically low refugee cap. He has also helped write the president’s major speeches, from the inaugural address to Trump’s response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas, and is among

Canada was the last industrialized country to officially commemorate the Holocaust and only last week dedicated its National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa.

Presumably, the wording used by the PM in a public exhibition went through several rounds of staff review and approval, yet nobody working for Trudeau noticed this? How is that possible?

What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption.
